A man has burned down his house as he tried to kill a spider using spray paint and a lighter.

The unnamed man from Seattle, in the north-western United States, attempted to use spray paint and a lighter to get rid of the arachnid - but instead caused $60,000 worth of damage to his property, reports The Mirror newspaper.

Resident Kaitlin Sharp said: "There were giant clouds of smoke pouring out of the windows."

The man is now being supported by The Red Cross until he can return to his home.
