The caregiver, Lyndsey Wisegarver, described the pest as a "huge wolf spider".

But Redding Fire Marshal Craig Wittner told BuzzFeed News that the spider attack is what tenants said they were doing.

Battalion Chief Rob Pitt said the fire caused moderate damage to the apartment when one of the residents tried to burn a spider to kill it.

He ended up hitting the spider, who dashed onto a mattress, catching the furniture on fire.

The fire on the mattress was reportedly extinguished by residents, but it had already spread to other parts of the flat.

It is not clear whether the spider survived the fire. Seattle fire officials in 2014 said a man tried to kill a spider using a can of spray paint and a lighter when the wall caught fire and spread, causing significant damage to his home.

More strikes on Norfolk trains this week
RMT union members are striking over possible plans to get rid of guards on trains, which they argue is unsafe. She said: "The RMT leadership opposes changes that we made a year ago to improve passenger services".

The residents in the apartment, Wisegarver and the two men, are going to have to find another place to live as the place is uninhabitable, Pitt said.

Wisegarver said she had been thinking about moving out anyway and the fire had just sped up the process. 'We'll make it work, ' she added.

Wolf spiders can grow up to the size of a human hand, though many sub-species are much smaller.

They should be considered risky to humans and the bite may be very painful.

Fire officials say they responded to 2534 Waldon Street in Redding around noon for a fire at a townhouse.
