CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- One man is facing multiple felony charges after a house fire on Rutledge Avenue on Sunday that left one displaced and killed a pet.

Shortly after 2:30 p.m. Sunday, emergency crews were called to the 1400 block of Rutledge Ave for a reported structure fire. Multiple agencies were there including Charlottesville police, and that's where things took a turn.

A man was detained at the scene and Charlottesville Public Information Officer Afton Schneider said that the original charge was for public intoxication. But Monday, things changed.

"The fire appeared not to be accidental. A resident was actually arrested for destruction of property and arson of a dwelling, and these are both felonies," Schneider said.

Schneider says right now they will not be releasing more information on the identity of this person, as the investigation continues. Fire and rescue crews were able to put out the fire on the first floor however, the damage was significant enough to displace the other occupant of the home.

Authorities are still trying to piece together exactly what happened, and that could have an impact on potential charges, and what happens next.
