REDDING, Calif. — An at-home extermination in California caused an apartment fire over the weekend.
Redding firefighters said residents tried to kill a spider using a torch lighter.
The flaming spider reportedly scurried onto some bedding, setting it ablaze.
Then the walls caught fire.
The building was damaged and residents will have to stay elsewhere for a while, but no one was hurt.
Firefighters put the fire out in about 15 minutes.
