MAN SETS HOME ABLAZE TRYING TO BURN BEES NEST

A man’s attempt to burn bees out of their nest backfired after the ill-advised extermination method caught fire to a Georgia home, destroying most of it.

Fayette County Deputy Fire Chief Tom Bartlett said that the homeowner lit a stick on fire last weekend, then tried to poke the flaming stick up into the bees’ nest near the roof to get rid of them.

That set fire to part of the house, with the flames then spreading through the attic and engulfing much of the structure.

No serious injuries were reported, but photos of the devastation show that the blaze charred the entire roof of the house.

The fire happened in the Fayetteville area, about 20 miles south of Atlanta.
