They whipped out a torch lighter to slay a large spider in their apartment, and now the place is toast
09 January, 2018, 18:53
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.

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.
