HUTCHINSON , Kan., June 27 (UPI) -- A Kansas woman is facing arson charges after she allegedly set a small fire in her home early on Friday morning while trying to kill a spider.

According to the Hutchinson News, Ginny Griffith used a cigarette lighter to set some towels on fire in an attempt to assassinate the arachnid.

Five Hutchinson Fire Department units were able to extinguish the small fire in Griffith's half of a duplex. Firefighters found multiple points of origin for the fire and Griffith was arrested and charged with aggravated arson because the other half of the duplex was occupied.

No one was injured and the structure only suffered light smoke damage.
