ODD NEWS: Man Fights Spiders, Burns House

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - There are some people who are frightened by spiders.   Then there are people who take that to a whole different level.

In Seattle a man attempted to get rid of a spider in a very unique, and perhaps not well thought-out, way.

Fire officials in Seattle say a man used a lighter and a can of spray paint to kill a spider in his laundry room Tuesday evening.

Instead he caught his house on fire.

The home, which the man is renting, will cost $40,000 to repair and another $20,000 to replace furniture.

No word on whether the spider survived.
