Woman burns her house down in attempt to kill bedbugs

A United States woman has accidentally set her apartment block ablaze when trying to eradicate it of bugs.

Three people were injured and 10 people have been left homeless after a woman accidentally started a fire while trying to kill bed bugs, according to authorities.

A resident who uploaded video to Facebook of the incident told the television station: 'Where I got here the whole house was on fire'.

The unidentified Cincinnati woman was dousing the infestation with the highly flammable liquid near an open flame Friday when she inadvertently sparked the conflagration, officials said. The fire then spread to six other apartments.
