A Pennsylvania man who wanted to scare opossums from his property with fire ended up destroying his home, Yahoo News reports.

The man used butane to light piles of leaves on fire, hoping to deter the animals from his yard. The unintended blaze left three displaced and caused $50,000 worth of damage.

The house has been condemned and one firefighter sought treatment from a shoulder injury.
