A Texas woman burned her own house down during a heated battle with a snake.
Her son tossed a lit match at the creeping reptile but it slithered into a nearby brush pile, bringing the flames with it. The brush pile, too, caught fire and soon spread to the family’s home on Will Smith Rd. in Texarkana, Capt. David Grable of the Bowie County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to the Daily News.
“We were trying to kill a snake with fire,” the woman said during a 911 call. “It done caught the house.”
