Mouse 1, Humans 0

If you want to get rid of a rodent, use a trap. Trying to kill themwith fire, is unlikely to be successful.

An 81-year-old Fort Sumner homeowner said he caught the mouse inside his house and just wanted to get rid of it.The man threw the critter in a pile of burning leaves near his home, but it ran back to the house on fire. Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the mouse ran to just beneath a window and the flames spread up the window and throughout the house.All contents of the home were destroyed, but no injuries were reported, Chavez said.
