The Seattle Fire Department says a man using a spray paint can and a lighter to try and kill a spider started a West Seattle fire that caused $60,000 worth of damage.

The Seattle Times reported that after the man ignited his laundry room with his makeshift blowtorch, he tried to put water on the flames, but the blaze spread into the attic.

A fire spokesman says no injuries were reported.

The Red Cross is providing temporary shelter for the home’s two residents.
