Heck Yeah You Did: Guy Burns Home Trying To Kill Spider

killing-spider-fire.jpg

A man in Seattle caused $40,000 in fire damage to a rental home after trying to kill a spider with a lighter and can of spray paint. For reference, that is arguably the best reason to accidentally set your house on fire.

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 building, which is a rental home, will cost roughly $40,000 to repair, Moore said. It will cost another $20,000 to repair or replace the contents of the home.

It's unclear if the spider survived.

Ahahahahhahaha @ "It's unclear if the spider survived." I guarantee that f***er survived. Plus probably mutated. Also, I love how this guy clearly went out of his way to set the spider ablaze. Like, he could have smacked it with a shoe, but no, this man hunted down a can of spraypaint and a lighter so he could BURN IT WITH FIRE. That is dedication. When reached for comment, the fire chief admitted he would have done the exact same thing except with hair spray.

Thanks to Allyson, who kills spiders the old fashioned way: making somebody else do it for her.

    HAHA! Sounds like something you see in a cartoon. 8D

  • Totally reasonable.

    I'm not against his choice of weapon. But I think first I would definitely make sure I've got a functioning fire extinguisher on hand in case the worst should happen. When I was a kid experimenting with WD40 and a lighter, I had a bucket of water ready to go in case somehow my asphalt driveway went up in flames.

  • And risk losing track of the 8-legged hell demon? Sometimes you gotta shoot from the hip! (If you hip is where you hold the spray paint)

    Would laugh, but nearly did the same thing 15 years ago at my Brother In Law's house trying to burn a Black Widow's nest off the corner of the roof.
