Back in October of 2012, a guy in Holland, Michigan found a dead squirrel and took it into his girlfriend's apartment to cook it up and eat it. A free squirrel makes for some damn good vittles, as you know.

But before he could dig in, he had to remove its fur and his method for that was a propane blowtorch. But the squirrel caught on fire, then the apartment caught on fire, then the entire complex caught on fire.

There's been a huge legal battle between the apartment complex and the woman's insurance company in the four years since the fire, with numbers as big as $2 million being thrown around to cover the damages.
