Muskegon Area House Goes Up In Flames After Renters Set Off Flea Bombs

Well, the good news is the fleas are gone. It seems you don’t need to set off 16 flea bombs to rid your home of the pests.

The incident happened Sunday night in Muskegon Township. Renters at a home on East Giles noticed they had a flea problem. Like anyone else would, they set off some flea bombs to control the infestation.

Usually 4 to 6 flea bombs will do the trick but they REALLY wanted to take care of the problem, so they set off SIXTEEN flea bombs.

Per the instructions they left the house for a few hours, and came back as the Muskegon Township Fire Department was hosing their house down.

Turns out the gas propellant in the SIXTEEN bombs was ignited by a pilot light, causing $20,000 in damage.

The Muskegon Township Fire Chief says the tenants did cut the power, which included a second electric water heater, but they forgot about the gas water heater.

We do have two nuggets of good news with this: (1) No one was hurt, (2) No more fleas!
