    Default Spiders saved people from a fire

    HEMLOCK, Mich. (AP) -- A woman who hates spiders is crediting them with helping save her from a house fire. Danielle Vigue, 18, says she awoke early Tuesday to find spiders in her room, and started killing them. When more showed up, she says she went across the hall and got into bed with her 15-year-old sister, Lauren.

    ''At first there were five, they were all around the light fixture,'' Danielle Vigue told The Saginaw News. ''I hate spiders, they freak me out.''

    A fire, the newspaper said, apparently was smoldering in the attic of the home about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.

    A few hours later, Vigue's 48-year-old mother, Debra, and 8-year-old sister, Shelby, smelled smoke, and flames greeted the family when they opened the door to the room Danielle Vigue had earlier left.

    ''I will never kill another spider again,'' she told WNEM-TV in Saginaw.

    Richland Township Fire Chief Gary Wade, a 30-year veteran of the Saginaw County department, was surprised by Vigue's story.

    ''I've never heard of spiders saving someone from a fire before,'' Wade said.

    Indeed.... I made a living off of them for several years.
