California Man Sets Fire to Parents' Home While Using Blowtorch to Kill Spiders
The flames are suspected to have started, firefighters said, because the man was using a blowtorch on black widow spiders.
Twenty-nine firefighters responded to put out a two-alarm blaze at a Fresno home Tuesday evening. The flames are suspected to have started, firefighters said, because the man was using a blowtorch on black widows.
Crews said that the second floor of the home, where the man was house-sitting, was damaged, as well as the attic.
Thankfully, no one was injured or killed in the blaze. There's no word on the spiders, though.
This man, who was not identified by authorities, is not the first to turn to pyrotechnics to kill bugs. Earlier this year, another California man set fire to his Redding apartment with a torch lighter while attempting to kill a spider.
