A Texas woman who doused a snake in her yard with gasoline to kill it found out a little too late that that might not have been the best idea.

Authorities say a northeast Texas woman recently learned a hard lesson: Don’t try to kill a snake by setting it on fire.
The woman was cleaning the yard outside a home near Texarkana Wednesday night when she spotted a snake. Bowie County Sheriff’s Capt. David Grable says she poured gasoline on the snake to try to kill it. Her son then dropped a lit match on the snake.
The engulfed snake slithered into some brush nearby the home. Grable says the brush ignited and started a fire that destroyed the home and damaged one next door.
So not only did she blaze up herown ish with this bright idea, she ruined someone else’s house too. SMH.
