House Fire Set While Chasing Spider

(Seattle, Washington)
Fire officials say a West Seattle man was using a lighter and a can of spray paint to kill a spider in his laundry room when the house went up in flames.

Fire crews were called to a home in the 10200 block of 34th Avenue SW just before 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Firefighters originally battled the blaze from a distance after learning there may be ammunition inside. Crews were eventually able to extinguish the fire, but not before it did significant damage to the structure.

A man who lived at the home told fire officials he was trying to kill a spider in his laundry room using a can of spray paint and a lighter when the wall caught fire, according to Kyle Moore with the Seattle Fire Department. The man wasn't able to put the fire out himself, and he left the home when it began to spread.
The guy must have been drunk or high.

One more proof that girly-man-itis is going to end the world. At least the civilized world. If this is the result? There is no choice. Me? I leave spiders alone if they leave me alone. If they don't I crush them with my hand and feed them to my cat, or just chase them toward the youngest of my cats and she feeds herself. Entertainment right there, better than television.

Saw that in the news, how stupid people can be!
He's lucky the paint can didn’t blow his hand off.
