Ashes to ashes, mouse to house

In New Mexico, a man nibbled off more than he could chew when a mouse he tried to get rid of returned in a blaze of glory to burn down his house.

Horrified Luciano Mares, 81, could not believe his luck when he saw the mouse run with fire torches back into his house after he had chucked it into a pile of burning leaves.

Understandably, he was more than cheesed off at seeing his house and all his worldly possessions burn to the ground, though fortunately no humans were harmed in this experiment.

No one else seems to have reported it, but here at the Nibs we would like to add that the mouse has now joined the multi-coloured MouseTrap in the sky. God bless the fiesty Fievel and its truly American Tail.
