Arachnophobes, pay attention to this storyline out of Detroit. A guy, who says he’s terrified of spiders, saw a spider on his automobile while he was filling up with petrol. Theres a reason why they’ve those warning signs on gas pumps. You know, the ones that say things like Risk: No Smoking. That is realized by the unknown guy in this video now.
The guy can be seen pumping gas into his car when he sees a spider crawling around near the petrol filler cap. Rather than crushing the arachnid, and getting a paper towel, or something similar, the guy decides to send the bug to Hades by torching him with a cigarette lighter. Naturally, when he does that, you understand what occurs. The flame from the light ignites vapor or some fuel, and within a few seconds, the entire region, including the gas pump, is on fire.
Luckily the guy transfers his car out of the way, keeps his wits about him, and puts out the fires with a fire extinguisher. The entire gas station was likely saved by his fast thinking from going up in flames. If he’d used his head a bit more about the spider.
The guy and everyone else at the station were not harmed. There’s been no word about the state of the spider.
Heres a report, from Fox2Detroit:
