Snake Burns Down Home

Posted: Updated:

A woman in Bowie County finds a snake in her yard and decides to kill the reptile.  She does that by dousing it with gasoline and lighting the animal on fire.    The snake races into some dry brush and quickly a grassfire starts.  It ends up catching the woman's home on fire and destroying it.  A neighbors home was also damaged.  The woman may be charged in this case.
