  • Fire officials investigating cause of Redding apartment fire

A report said the fire forced the residents to evacuate and firefighters were immediately summoned to the building.

Residents in California attempted to kill a spider in their home by lighting it on fire.

Fire officials say one of the men who lives in the apartment found the spider in an upstairs bedroom.

Battalion Chief Rob Pitt told the Statesman Journal the residents tried to put the fire out with a garden house but were unsuccessful. Flames soon spread to the walls, ultimately setting the apartment ablaze.

Wisegarver said the flames soon spread to the apartment's drapes and a flag collection.

The fire, which started shortly before noon in the 2500 block of Waldon Street in downtown, was extinguished within 20 minutes, Pitt said.

The Redding Fire Department is investigating the cause of a fire that left an apartment uninhabitable Sunday afternoon.

The damage from the fire was estimated at about $11,000.

As for Wisegarver and the two men living in the apartment, they are going to have to find another place to live.

Wisegarver said she had been thinking about moving out anyway and the fire had just sped up the process.

Wolf spiders are not poisonous, and although they are typically non-aggressive, they will bite if they feel provoked.

When firefighters arrived to the burning building, they could see smoke coming out of the first and second-story windows.
