Ayup. That’s pretty much how it went. A homeowner in Liberty Eylau in Texas was outside cleaning up her yard when she saw a snake. Apparently she is not fond of these mice-catching creatures, so decided to throw gasoline on the snake and set it on fire. Well, the snake wasn’t just going to roll over and die that easily, so it slithered into the dry brush which caught fire – then the brush caught the house on fire.
The home is a complete loss.
This homeowner is in contention for the upcoming “2013 Not the Sharpest Knife in the Drawer” award.
