Man trying to kill spider sets house ablaze; $60K damage

Man Sets Home on Fire Trying to Kill Spider

SEATTLE -- A man who used a spray-paint can and lighter to try to kill a spider on the wall ended up setting fire to his house Tuesday night and causing an estimated $60,000 damage, the Seattle Fire Department said.

Q13FOX reports that firefighters were called to the house in the 10200 block of 34th Avenue Southwest in the Arbor Heights area of West Seattle.

The fire was put out in short order, but it was the cause of the fire that became the real story.

Not saying we should get rid of stupid people....just take the warning labels of things and let nature take its course.

You don't really believe people kill spiders because they're competition for food, do you?..

here's something more stupid. an area of my town has beautiful condo's on the water. occasionally a rat will find it's way into one of them, (which even if I could afford it, I'd never buy one), so this guy has one in his, shoots at it, goes thru the wall into a neighbor's, cops come, find a few ponds of pot, coke, scales,,,10 years,,,see you later
