Vengeful mouse sets house ablaze

Sunday, January 8, 2006; Posted: 5:40 p.m. EST (22:40 GMT)

FORT SUMNER, New Mexico (AP) -- A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.

Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window, and the flames spread up from there and throughout the house.

No was hurt inside, but the home and everything in it was destroyed.

Unseasonably dry and windy conditions have charred more than 53,000 acres and destroyed 10 homes in southeastern New Mexico in recent weeks.

"I've seen numerous house fires," village Fire Department Capt. Jim Lyssy said, "but nothing as unique as this one."

Next time he should just use the shotgun for household mice, like I do.

Thats what the cockbag gets for setting a mouse on fire, sick bastard. Death by fire is a death very few things deserve...

If you were 81, you would dispatch of the mouse in the easiest way possible too.

Moral to that story? NEVER underestimate your enemy!

Reminds me of a story a friend of mine told me...

They had a mouse problem in their frat house, so they put out glue traps. A mouse was caught in one of them. They have the mouse in the trap and don't know what to do with it. Some drunk genius says they should burn it as an example to others, and squirts it with lighter fluid. The lighter fluid loosens the glue, and the mouse takes off running. Some quick-thinking drunk lurches at it with a lighter like Bruce Willis at the end of Die Hard 2, and lights it. So now there is a burning mouse tearing ass all over the room, and splashed lighter fluid, setting things on fire. How to put out a burning mouse? Stomp on it of course! So now there is a burnt, squashed, mouse shaped stain on the carpet, and several fires including a curtain. Somehow they got the fires put out and didn't kill themselves.

Just one of the many incredibly dumb things that happens when you put a bunch of irresponsible, rich drunks together in one house by themselves.

I kept wondering how a mouse could burn long enough for him to run into the house. The mice I've seen just don't seem to have enough fur.

Now if he has soaked it in kerosene first.......
