A man from Detroit was pumping gas when he noticed a spider and tried to kill it… with a lighter… did we mention he was pumping gas?

As one would expect, the flame ignited fumes from the fuel which spread to the gas pump.

Shockingly, the man got away unharmed, moved his car and then grabbed a fire extinguisher.

He said he is sorry but he is deathly afraid of spiders.
