Man starts blaze trying to kill ants

A MAN set fire to his house in Rotherham in Yorkshire after trying to get rid of an ants nest by dousing it with petrol and lighting it at about 8pm on Thursday.

The man initially set light to his hedge but the fire spread. A similar blaze occurred last week when a man tried to kill a spider in South Wales with an aerosol spray.
