    Man blows up apartment spraying for bugs? Mon Jul 21, 1:35 PM ET



    A New Jersey man trying to exterminate insects in his apartment blew it up instead, the New York Daily News reported on Monday.

    Isias Vidal Maceda was unhurt in the incident, but 80 percent of his apartment was destroyed, Eatontown, New Jersey police told the newspaper.

    The accident occurred as Maceda was spraying for pests in his kitchen. Somehow the bug spray ignited a blast that blew out the apartment's front windows and triggered a fire that quickly spread, the newspaper said.

    Police told the newspaper that the Saturday blaze also caused smoke damage to the apartment above.

    Dipstick was probably using a flammable oil-based aerosol instead of a crack & crevice aerosol and pilot light set it off.

    Yep once the fumes reached a point where the saturation level reached ignition point all that's left is wondering why you smell like burnt hair

    How much spray did that guy use?

    I guess he had a 'real' bug problem, but not now!

    I guess he, "Got-R-Did"

    Warning labels do have a purpose. Simply put---they're an educational survey of sorts.
