California man accidentally sets apartment on fire while trying to kill spider

REDDING, Calif. - A California man accidentally set his apartment on fire while trying to kill a spider, authorities say.

Redding fire officials say the man was trying to kill a wolf spider with a blowtorch.

Apparently, the spider, which was covered in flames, scurried into a nearby mattress.

Flames quickly spread from the mattress to curtains and several other items in the bedroom, fire officials said.

Residents inside the home tried to use a garden hose to put out the flames until fire crews arrived. 

Firefighters estimate the damage to the apartment to be around $11,000.

Luckily, no one was injured. The status of the spider is still unknown.

i hate spiders too and my house tends to attract them. I take toilet paper and go directly on top of the spider and crush it and then flush it.
