"A man who lived at the home told fire officials he was trying to kill a
spider in his laundry room using a can of spray paint and a lighter when
the wall caught fire, according to Kyle Moore with the Seattle Fire
Department. The man wasn't able to put the fire out himself, and he left
the home when it began to spread.
The building, which is a
rental home, will cost roughly $40,000 to repair, Moore said. It will
cost another $20,000 to repair or replace the contents of the home.
