A woman burnt down her house trying to kill a spider.

Ginny Griffith set fire to her bath towels using a cigarette lighter after spotting the eight-legged creature scaling her bathroom wall, causing the blaze to spread across the home in a matter of minutes.

The 34-year-old phoned emergency services and five fire trucks were dispatched to her apartment in Kansas in the Midwestern United States, where they were tasked with putting out the inferno.

Deputy Fire Chief Doug Hanen said in a statement that his men had found smoke coming from a pile of smouldering clothes just inside the doorway as they entered but also discovered a number of other points where the fire may have originated.
