Firefighters said they arrived at the Portsmouth, England, home and found the man attempting to put out the flames with a garden hose, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.
"The whole thing had clearly scared the life out of him," watch manager Steve Pearce said of the man. "There was a gap in the cladding where he was trying to kill the spider and so the sparks got through to the material behind and started spreading upward toward the roof."
Pearce said firefighters spent about two hours extinguishing the blaze.
"Surprisingly there wasn't much damage to the house other than to the cladding," he said. "We obviously had a chat with the man but I don't think he'll be doing this again."

PRAGUE – Declaring it "matters to all people everywhere,"promised on Sunday to lead the world into a nuclear-free future, giving a hawkish edge to a peacenik pursuit even as upstaged him with the launch of a long-range rocket that theoretically could carry a warhead.
Obama made his pledge before 20,000 flag-waving Czechs outside the gates of picturesque Prague Castle. He chose a nation that peacefully threw off communism and helped topple nuclear power Soviet Unionas the backdrop for presenting an ambitious plan to stop the global spread of dangerous weapons.
"Let us honor our past by reaching for a better future," Obama said.
Shifting on an eight-day European trip from the economic crisis to the war in Afghanistan and now nuclear capabilities, Obama said his goal of "a world without" won't be reached soon, "perhaps not in my lifetime."
But he said the United States, with one of the world's largest arsenals and the only nation to have used an, has a "moral responsibility" to start taking steps now.
