Urban Legends Reference Pages: Media Matters (Mouse Fire): "A mouse set a house on fire after the homeowner threw the rodent into a pile of burning leaves...A few days later, however, came the report that the mouse was already dead when the homeowner threw it into the pile of burning leaves, and that the house fire was touched off by winds that blew embers from the burning leaf pile back towards the house"

Snopes says the mouse did not set the house on fire--the embers did. So much for lex talionis...
