If you think you hate spiders, you’ve probably got nothing on Ginny Griffith. Police in Hutchinson, Kansas say the 34-year-old set fire to her house, while trying to kill a spider with a lighter.
Griffith told police she lit a wad of paper towels – hoping to torch the tiny terror to death. Instead, the flames grew out of control, consuming the bug hater’s home. Five fire crews arrived in time to prevent any major damage to the building.
It’s unclear if the spider survived the ordeal, after all. Meanwhile, Griffith has been charged with arson.
