This story definitely takes the whole "Kill it with fire!" meme to the next level.
At an apartment complex in Redding, CA, a resident noticed a creepy, crawly spider walking around. Instead of just squishing it with a shoe or a book or something, this genius decided to burn it. Once ignited, the spider ran for cover, hiding in the sheets of a bed. This caused the bed to catch fire, which in turn caused the wall to go up in flames.
After all was said and done and the fire department put out the apartment fire, $11,000 worth of damage had been caused...all over a spider!
