Man Burns Down Shed Trying To Clean Cobwebs With Blowtorch
A 74-year-old man burned down his Iredell, N.C., shed with a blowtorch while trying to clean unwanted cobwebs Wednesday afternoon, according to the Statesville Record & Landmark. Henry Wayne Gurley claimed he often uses a propane torch to remove spider webs around his home and shed. Gurley said he’s been using the flamethrower for 16 years and never before ran into any problems. He was not very smart.
