A Maine man accidentally torched his parents' home over the weekend while trying to exterminate ants, Yahoo News reported.

Investigators with the state fire marshal's office said this week that 21-year-old Devon Doucette was trying to incinerate the ants with wooden matches when he inadvertently ignited combustible material that caused flames to rapidly envelope the Old Orchard Beach home.

While Doucette escaped with his life and his parents weren't home at the time of the blaze, unfortunately three family pets perished in the fire, Yahoo News reported.
