Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire before it spread to other units, but it still caused an estimated $11,000 in damages.

No injuries were reported from the blaze.

Lyndsey Wisegarver, a caregiver for one of the men living in the building, told the outlet the flames began in an upstairs bedroom after the resident spotted a startlingly large spider.

A Californian man tried to kill a spider using a torch lighter on Sunday, Jan. 7, but his attempts did not go as planned.

A report said the fire forced the residents to evacuate and firefighters were immediately summoned to the building.

While on fire, the spider reportedly darted toward a mattress, which quickly caught on fire.

"And it was such an interesting comment that it grew legs and spread like wildfire", he said, adding that the fire department's investigation remains ongoing.

The fire, which started shortly before noon in the 2500 block of Waldon Street in downtown, was extinguished within 20 minutes, Pitt said.

The residents attempted to put the fire out with a garden hose, but with no luck.

"It was a huge wolf spider", Wisegarver told the paper.

Wisegarver said the men had been talking for some time about moving out of the apartment prior to the fire.

Wolf spiders are not poisonous, and although they are typically non-aggressive, they will bite if they feel provoked. Its venom is considered unsafe to humans, though generally non-lethal.
