Frenchman tried to kill fly with electric swatter, blows up his house

A man in Dordogne, France, accidentally blew up his own house while trying to remove a fly, local reports say.

Armed with an electric swatter, the man who is in his 80s chased the insect around his home, according to the local Sud Ouest newspaper.

What he didn't know at the time, though, was that there was a gas leak in his home. The reaction between the gas and the swatter caused an explosion that collapsed past of his ceiling, according to the report.

The man suffered a minor burn to his hand and his home is uninhabitable, Sud Ouest reported.

The fate of the housefly is unknown at this time.
