A mouse took fiery revenge on a man who threw it into a pile of burning leaves, by burning his house down.

The flaming mouse ran back into the wooden house of 81-year-old Luciano Mares in New Mexico, setting it afire and virtually destroying the building.

Mr Mares said he had caught the mouse in his home on Saturday and threw it on a pile of refuse and leaves he was burning in the garden.

"The mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," he told the Clovis News Journal newspaper.

The mouse got his revenge. Think this guy should have either let the mouse live in the house too or have gotten a cat to capture the mouse. In other words NEVER TRUST THE MOUSE IN YOUR HOUSE, they can be sneaky.

Thats what you get for throwing a living animal into a pile of burning leaves. Although I'd like to see the insurance claim for that...and he sort of is partially responsible, when it comes down to it.

that guy is very unlucky. the mouse was only trying to flee, and ended up burning the guys house down. i guess the mouse got revenge.

I'm confused. How can a mouse be flaming? Mice are quite tiny and there has to be moisture in their pelts, this sounds a bit weird, doesn't it? Question

Accountable for arson? I don't think so... Is there a law against burning your own house down, if it doesn't threaten anybody else's life or property?

Had crawled through a petroleum-based spill recently?

Guy made up the story about the mouse to cover for him burning his house down to collect on insurance?

Yes, that did go through my mind, but probably more like his son or daughter, as apparently he is quite old. Quite a number of scenarios possible. But yes your possibility of a petroleum-based spill, could be right on as well. But if the mouse had been dumped outside, that would have been quite a long distance that it had to run while it was "flaming"?

I suspect mice run quite fast when on fire.

Lol! I'd have thought that as well!

...pity for the mouse though really, the guy was out of order in my opinion, he should have killed it quickly by stamping on it, or whatever, death by fire is pretty cruel in my mind.

I am sure there is especially if you try to collect on insurance

A little gasoline put on the mouse before throwing in fire possibly.

Yep, come to think of it, I remember when my cat killed a mouse during an outside party so we threw it on the fire. It took ages to actually burn (even 'bubbled' up horribly for a while) and it's stinking smell was pretty bad! Shocked
...the flammability of mice was not advertised well that day so it's hard for me to imagine one burning a house down!

Right, I had thought so too. I can't imagine a mouse running from outside to the house and still be flaming enough to set the house alight. Just does not make sense at all unless gasoline has been involved as well, but wouldn't the investigators be able to pick up on when gasoline has been used?
