Local media TV station KFSN reported 29 firefighters were called to the property in Fresno, California.

A year ago an America man went to great lengths to kill spiders in the middle of the night.

It comes nearly a year to the day that an unnamed man from Tucson, Arizona, was suspected of using a propane torch to kill spiders and burn spiderwebs underneath his mobile home. He got out safely, but the home's attic and second story were damaged. His weapon of choice led to him losing his home.

Aboard Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge
In the past, travelling between Zhuhai and Hong Kong would take up to four hours - the new bridge cuts this down to 30 minutes. To Claudia Mo, a Hong Kong democratic politician, the bridge's political significance outweighs its practical usefulness.

The man who was trying to douse spiders with flames was house-sitting for his parents.

The blaze that resulted forced him and an elderly woman out of their home, which was completely gutted.
