A woman in Taiwan, blew up an office toilet after trying to kill a bug with fire.

The incident began when the woman, who is employed at an office building in Zhongli, was sent to clean several offices.

While cleaning a toilet, 43-year-old Xie Lo, found a bug crawling on the floor. She stomped on the insect several times, and to make sure it dies, she decided to light it on fire.

She took the insect and wrapped it in toilet paper before lighting it on fire. After the bug seemed dead, she threw it into the toilet bowl that was full of detergent.

As soon as the insect hit the water, the toilet just exploded in a ball of fire. Luckily, nobody was hurt by the fire, but the office suffered serious damages.
