While cleaning around the outside of her house, a Texas woman was frightened by a snake that slithered across the yard.  Thinking on her feet (or not), she doused the snake with gasoline and instructed her son to grab a match and set the snake on fire. The flaming snake fled into a pile of brush located next to her home, setting the brush on fire which quickly spread to her home.

The woman called Texarkana 911 services:

“We were trying to kill a snake with fire. It done caught the house on fire!”

The woman’s house was completely destroyed by the fire.  A nearby neighbor’s house also suffered significant damage.
