Fire officials investigating cause of Redding apartment fire

A California man, who attempted to kill a spider with a blowtorch, accidentally ended up setting an apartment on fire, according to local media.

The witness, caregiver Lyndsey Wisegarver, told the paper the man was attempting to kill a "huge wolf spider" with the torch lighter - a larger kind of cigarette light that emits a pressurized blue flame.

That's when Redding firefighters said the flaming arachnid scurried onto some bedding, which then caught fire.

"And it was such an interesting comment that it grew legs and spread like wildfire", he said, adding that the fire department's investigation remains ongoing.

No one was injured, however, the fire did cause about $11,000 in damage.

In December, a woman tried to kill bedbugs in her Cincinnati home with alcohol that ignited near an open flame, causing $250,000 in damage and displacing 10 people.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to other apartments, and all the residents in the building escaped unharmed, the Searchlight reported. Wolf spiders are venomous insects that have hairy bodies and can be more than 1-inch long.

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.

"We'll make it work", she told the news website.
