Skunk Problem Solved After House Burns Down

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. If you've got a pest in your house, you might turn to desperate measures. Case in point - a man in Detroit was trying to get rid of some skunks who were living in a crawl space in his house, so he used a smoke bomb. Not a great idea - the smoke bomb triggered a fire. The whole place burned down. No one was hurt luckily. And the fire chief told the Detroit Free Press that if you are hell-bent on doing this stuff by yourself, please read and understand the warning labels. It's MORNING EDITION.
