Seattle, WA -- This falls into the needlessly dumb category:  A man set his house on fire and caused $60k in damages when he tried killing a spider.  The man used a can of spray paint and a lighter to try and light the spider on fire.

A fire spokesman said no injuries were reported.

There were two residents living in the home and they are being provided temporary shelter by the Red Cross.

No word on if the spider survived.
