A guy who tried to kill a wolf spider in his apartment a few days ago is probably wishing he would have just grabbed a shoe or a rolled up magazine to get the job done…instead he tried to kill the spider by lighting it on fire with a torch lighter. Once the spider was on fire it ran onto his bed and set fire to the mattress which then quickly spread to the rest of the apartment and eventually caused $11,000 in damages.  The good news though is that the spider is dead.
