A Fort Sumner, N.M., man said he caught a mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it. He had a pile of leaves burning outside, so he threw the mouse on it. The mouse caught fire and ran back into the house.
Luciano Mares, 81, talked about the event Saturday from a motel room. The blaze the mouse started destroyed the home and everything inside it.
The mouse died, but exacting posthumous revenge by burning down the dude’s house has to be worth a point. And who in the world is both stupid and mean enough to get rid of a mouse by throwing it into a fire?
