Torching Bees Leads To Blazing Home

BRANDON TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – An Oakland County man got a little more than he bargained for when he tried to rid his home of a nest of bees.

Bees had built a nest on the roof of the Brandon Township man’s house. So he got a ladder, and a blow torch, to try and chase the bees away reports WWJ’s Sandra McNeill.

Unfortunately, the torch ignited the insulation of the house Huff Lake Court near M-15, north of Clarkston.

The fire caused extensive damage to the back of the house.

Thankfully there are no injuries.

The state of the bees nest is not yet clear.
