A California man spotted Black Widow spiders in his home and tried to eliminate them with a blowtorch.
That did not end well. See the complete story in this video.
The son made it out of the house safely and no human injuries were reported by the two-alarm fire, according to firefighters. No casualty listings for the spiders were made available, however.
The KFSN report says 29 firefighters were on the scene and that the home's second story and attic sustained damage.
