This Man Found A Spider In His House And Did Exactly What You Shouldn’t

You’ve been there, you’re doing your laundry in the basement or at the laundromat and things are a bit dustier than they should be.

You're in your busiest mind, and most of all focused not to allow procrastination to take over.

Then you spot it, a spider, crawling towards you or onto your clothes or away from you or doing anything at all really.

The scary seemingly disgusting creature.

You either run shrieking or like a champ you brush it out of the way or end its spidery existence.


Not this man from Seattle.

No half measures for him.

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.

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.
