A guy was so determined to kill the snakes infesting his home that he ended up burning his house down and in the end the snakes may have survived anyway

If snakes invaded your home and you couldn't get them out no matter what you tried...how far would you go?

This far?

A homeowner burned down their house in Montgomery County, Maryland, while trying to chase off snakes, officials say.

The homeowner tried to use smoke to fight a snake infestation in a home on Big Woods Road near Poolesville, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman Pete Piringer said.

Hot coals got too close to flammable materials, sparking the fire. About 75 firefighters responded at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Piringer said.

The fire spread from the basement and consumed the home, causing more than $1 million in damage, officials say

I tell you, whatever those "flammable materials" were, they did the trick:

Thankfully, nobody was harmed. But the worst part?

"Status of snakes undetermined," Piringer said.

All that terrible effort and you might not have even killed your target?

Admit it, if those snakes lived, they must feel absolutely invincible right about now.
