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."

believe it or not, mice live for about 20-30 seconds after being lit on fire.

I have seen them live longer than that, saw a burning Jack Rabbit catch a good mile of pasture on fire before he froze up.

He was in a pile of Brush we were burning, in some bad grass fires I have seen all kinds of animals on fire spreading fire across roads and firebreaks every time we though the fire was under control a burning bird or rabbit or deer would jump it into a new fuel source. I think that farmer burnt about half the county that week fire burned ofr 3 days before it was finally really put out.

For the record I have never intentionally set a live animal on fire.
