PONTIAC, Mich. — A Michigan woman set herself on fire while trying to kill bed bugs she found inside her car.

The 31-year-old woman told rescue crews that she had suffered a panic attack Tuesday after finding the bed bugs, and tried to kill them by pouring rubbing alcohol in the car and setting it on fire.

WJBK reports the woman suffered second-degree burns and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
