On Sunday Jan 7th 2018, fireman were called to tackle a fire at an apartment block. The fireman battled with flames for 20 minutes before successfully extinguishing them. But when the firemen investigated the cause of the fire they heard a bizarre tale.

The apartment owner had discovered a spider in his apartment, not liking spiders, he decided to kill it. It was a huge wolf spider, so instead of sending it to spider heaven with a wack of a large book or stamp of his shoe, he decided to kill it by incinerating it with a torch lighter.

He set fire to the spider. The spider, now ablaze, scurries across the room onto a mattress which then catches alight. The man manages to put out the mattress fire but, by now, the fire has spread to his collection of flags. And very quickly on to his whole apartment.
