WARNING: Don't use a torch to kill spiders!
Obviously, this man in California didn't see this warning, when he tried to kill a spider by torching it and set his entire apartment on fire!

Apparently, the man caught the spider on fire and it then scurried away while set ablaze, catching many other objects on fire.
This wasn't your average spider... an eye witness, Lyndsey Wisegarver said the man was trying to kill a "huge wolf spider" with a torch lighter that emits a large blue pressurized flame.
