A man caused a fire at a Detroit petrol station by putting a lighter to a spider near his fuel cap.

The man escaped injury and his vehicle suffered little damage, but the pump was destroyed.

An attendant shut off the pump from indoors and called the fire brigade.

The motorist can be heard on the CCTV asking: "Is that a spider in there?"
