It may sounds like a B-grade movie, but it was all too real for Maine firefighters who encountered snakes in an attic. Firefighters in Auburn learned upon responding to an attic fire Monday morning that a tenant was keeping 25 to 30 ball pythons in the attic. Captain Scott Hunter told WMTW-TV that firefighters rescued about half the snakes after being told they were not poisonous. Firefighters believe that a heater used to keep the snakes warm caused the fire.
