Man using blowtorch to kill spiders starts house fire


Just before 11 on Tuesday night the Fresno Fire Department responded to a 2-alarm fire in the 500 block of E. Mariners circle near Woodward Lake in Northeast Fresno. Firefighters say the fire started after a man was using a blowtorch to kill spiders. The fire quickly spread into the garage, but firefighters were able to stop the fire before it consumed any of the living space in the 4,000 square foot home. Nobody was injured in this fire.
