  • Report Man Attempting to Kill Spider Sets Apartment on Fire Causes $11,000 in Damages

A man who attempted to kill a spider using a torch lighter has caused a fire in his apartment.

No injuries were reported from the blaze.

"It was a huge wolf spider", Lyndsey Wisegarver, a caregiver for one of the tenants, told the publication.

A Redding, Calif., man set his apartment ablaze on Sunday after attempting to kill a giant spider with a torch lighter, according to the Redding Record Searchlight.

The fire wasn't enough to completely destroy the apartment, but the extent of the damage has forced the residents to move out. While the fire didn't kill the spider instantly, the burning spider did run into a mattress, setting it on fire - a fire that spread to the drapes and a flag collection. The blaze was extinguished in less than 20 minutes.

Pitt said the fire spread to a closet in the bedroom, but firefighters were able to keep it from getting into the attic or neighboring apartments. The unit they were living in is uninhabitable, Pitt said. "We'll make it work", she told the news outlet.

"Call an exterminator if you have spiders. and don't try to burn them", Redding Firefighters advised. The species does bite and the venom can be unsafe to humans, but is usually not fatal.

Currently, there are about 200 species of wolf spiders in North America - they are common in California.
