Killing it with fire is not always a good idea... :D

 

"The man and his mother got out of the house, and no injuries were reported in the fire that broke out in the West Seattle home Tuesday night, said Kyle Moore, a spokesman for the Seattle Fire Department.

Moore said the man used the spray paint and lighter as "a self-made blowtorch to kill a spider in the laundry room" of a rental house.
 

"I don't want to encourage people to do this, but that's what he did," Moore said Wednesday. "The spider tried to get into the wall. He sprayed flames on the wall, lit the wall on fire, and that extended up to the ceiling."
 

Fire crews were called to the home in the home just south of Seattle just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Firefighters initially battled the blaze from the outside after getting reports that there may be ammunition in the home. Crews eventually went inside the house after confirming from tenants that there was no ammunition inside.
 

The man initially tried to put water on the fire, but he wasn't able to put it out and the blaze spread quickly spread into the attic.
 

"There are safer, more effective ways to kill spider than using fire," Moore said. "Fire is not the method to use to kill a spider."
 

The Red Cross is providing temporary shelter for the home's two residents, whom authorities have not identified.

As for the spider, Moore said: "I'm pretty sure the spider did not survive this fire. The whole wall went.""

Some spiders warrant extreme prejudice.

He probably played too much vanilla Skyrim.

In the Dragonborn DLC you get more than just frostbite spiders so a default fire spell is not a good idea.

It is true that in Elder Scrolls it takes 20 sword hits just to kill a worm or a spider so better do it with fire.

The walls were probably that 100+ year old heart pine. (fat lighter for the southerners) Burns like gasoline.

I have a pet spider, a 13" Goliath Bird Eater named Goldie. So tame she'll nap on my shoulder. Good mouser too. 1.7" fangs.

Goldie's larger. Think dinner plate plus a couple inches. They're a large type of tarantula that can get extremely large.
