Man Trying to Get Rid of Bugs Burns His Whole Apartment Down


I’ve lived in more than a dozen apartments throughout my life, and I’ll admit to having minor insect infestations in at least a few of them. Usually, if I noticed ants or, God forbid, roaches, I’d run to the store and pick up some poison spray for a buck or two. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

This genius, on the other hand, tackled his bug dilemma in a different way…and it cost him his whole home. For reasons still not fully understood, the Florida man decided he needed to burn those pesky irritants. But he ended up burning a whole lot more. His apartment is no more, but the man can be thankful that he will still have a place to hang his hat: he’s expected to be hospitalized for posing a danger to himself and others.

Sick burn. Share your fiery comments below.
