Officials in Ohio say a 13-year-old boy trying to kill a bed bug sparked an apartment building fire that displaced eight people and caused $300,000 in damage in Cincinnati, AP reported. Officials say the fire was reported around 11 p.m. Tuesday and began when the teen lit a match after dousing a bed bug with alcohol. Six apartment units were damaged in the fire. No injuries were reported. The Red Cross is working to find housing for three adults and five children whose apartments were damaged. While this is definitely an unusual way to start a house fire, CoverHound Insurance Solutions, based in California, has blogged about a few other bizarre fire hazards for the home.
