Blazing mouse sets fire to house
Sunday, 8 January 2006, 23:45 GMT

A US man threw a mouse he had found in his home onto a pile of burning leaves - only to see it run away and burn his house down.

Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner, New Mexico, found a mouse in his home and wanted to get rid of it.

“I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house,” he was quoted as saying by AP.

Though no-one was injured, the house and everything in it was destroyed.

“I’ve seen numerous house fires, but nothing as unique as this one,” Fire Department Captain Jim Lyssy said.

New Mexico has seen several major blazes after unseasonably dry and windy conditions which have destroyed 10 homes and devastated more than 53,000 acres (21,200 hectares) of land.

Not to mention the guy left his burning leaves unattended.  It’s no coincidence that bad things happen to stupid people.

still, don’t you think mice run pretty fast? It probably should’ve blown out, after all how long did it take him to notice his house was on fire?

The animal ran into the walls…the fire travelled up the walls near a window or something.

Besides, if the animal was alive when it happened, it would have gone to what it thought was a “safe” place - it’s home.

I liked this story!  It’s very rare to hear about someone that’s cruel to an animal getting what they deserve, so this is a refreshing change.  It’s just too bad that the mouse had to suffer.

As much as I hate rodents, the guy did get what he deserved. I feel sorry for the mouse.

This sort of reminds me of another article I read long ago, I can’t remember where or when.  I think it happened in Texas, though.  A man had a big fire-ant nest in his back yard, so he got a can of gasoline and poured it onto the nest and lit it.  Unfortunately, there was a little tunnel going from the ant nest to beneath his house, and the gasoline went down the tunnel and caught his house on fire.

This smacks of an urban legend of the guy who attaches fire or fireworks to a larger animal and the animal goes under his car and blows it up

The man involved is evidentally claiming that it didn’t quite happen that way.

And a spade to bury the bastard.
