Woman Burns Down Home Trying To Kill Bedbugs

Three injured 10 left homeless after woman attempts to kill bed bugs with fire

The fire caused up to $250,000 of damage according to initial estimates, reports Fox 19.

One resident, Kamaron Lyshe, posted a video of the fire on Facebook, writing: "My House caught fire n got burned down - all my stuff is gone maaaaaan".

A residential fire hospitalized three people and left 10 displaced.

Three adults suffered from smoke inhalation and were immediately taken to hospital but are expected to make a full recovery, according to Fire Chief Randy Freel.

The fire broke out late December 8 as the woman, who has not been identified, was trying to kill bed bugs using alcohol, according to WXIX.

The American Red Cross is helping the victims with clothing, meals and lodging, according to the TV station.

A DIY bed bug fix caused a fire that left three people injured and several others homeless, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

That fire ripped through the 48-unit apartment complex and the roof caved in according to the Detroit Free Press.

"I'm kind of dealing with it now", Lyshe continued. "I'll start fresh. It's all we can do now".

"This was accidental. He wasn't in there just playing with matches", Fire Chief Marc Monahan said, according to WXIX.

It's the second time in less than a month that a home was damaged by fire in Cincinnati in an attempt to kill bed bugs.

The agency specifically warns against using rubbing alcohol because it is flammable and is known to cause house fires.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help with costs relating to the fire.
