A 13-year-old Ohio boy trying to kill a bed bug with fire started a blaze in his apartment building that caused $300,000 in damage and displaced eight people.

Officials say the fire in Cincinnati was reported around 11 p.m. Tuesday and began when the teen lit a match after dousing a bed bug with alcohol, The Associated Press reported.

Six apartment units were damaged in the fire.
