Man Sets House On Fire While Trying To Kill Spider

A man in Seattle, Washington accidentally sets a rental house ablaze causing $60,000 worth of damage, trying to kill a spider using a can of spray paint and a lighter as a makeshift blowtorch.

Kyle Moore, a spokesman for the Seattle Fire Department reported the fire quickly extended from the wall, where the spider was, into the attic. The man initially tried to put it out with water but fire crews were called to the home around 8:30pm.

Luckily, the man and his mother were able to escape the fire with no injuries. Moore reports, however, “I’m pretty sure the spider did not survive this fire. The whole wall went.”
