Kansas Woman Sets House on Fire to Kill Spider

TIME.com: Kansas Woman Sets House on Fire to Kill Spider

No one was injured

A Kansas woman found herself in a precarious situation Friday after she set her duplex on fire to kill a spider.

Five firetrucks later, the police proved to be less than sympathetic with the plight of the single lady as she struggled to deal with the arachnid. According to the Hutchinson News, 34-year-old Ginny M. Griffith’s Macgyvered form of pest control (lighting towels on fire throughout her house) was rewarded with an arrest and aggravated arson charges. She is being held on a $7,500 bond.

No one, including the other people who occupied the other half of the duplex, was injured, and the fire was extinguished in minutes without causing structural damage.
