Maryland homeowners burn down house in attempt to smoke out snake infestation

The fire started in the basement of the home and ended up consuming just about everything causing more than $1 million dollars worth of property damage.

Photos were taken during the fire and shows flames shooting up into the sky from the roof and second-story windows. Other photos showed the aftermath of what it looked like after they finally put out the fire.

Fortunately, no one was injured during the fire except the snakes that infested the home. The snakes were obviously not a problem anymore. However, now the homeowner has to deal with an even bigger problem: finding a new place to live.

The type of snakes that were in the home were not specified but the Maryland Department of Natural Resources says the only dangerously venomous snakes in the state are the eastern copperhead and the timber rattlesnake.
