Aliens were responsible for a series of unexplained fires in fridges, TVís and mobile phones in an Italian village, according to an Italian government report.

Canneto di Caronia, in northern Sicily, drew attention three years ago after residents reported everyday household objects bursting into flames.

TV news footage at the time showed electrical appliances as well as cookers, a pile of wedding presents and furniture smoldering.

Dozens of experts including scientists, electrical engineers and military boffins, arrived in the village 60 miles east of Palermo to investigate the phenomenon.

Well maybe the title is a little misleading (NASA only says "caused by a high power electro-magnetic emissions which were not man made"), but still it seems very interesting. The other explanation was some kind of "top-secret" exotic weaponry, but why test that so, said:

The other explanation was some kind of "top-secret" exotic weaponry, but why test that sort of thing in a small Italian village?

So, what's more likely: Aliens? Or exotic fridge fire causing weaponry?

Neither. How about a power surge/fault in the grid?

Ah but no, read the article. The scientist describes a power cord that's unplugged bursting into flames.
And when in hell would a power surge cause a fridge to catch on fire?

Some electrical items retain a charge even if unplugged. I've taken a few shocks from amplifiers I've played about with when unplugged.

Well if it's plugged in any electrical appliance can catch fire.

  Why would extraterestials be so interested in destruction of minor appliances like fridges? If it were 'alien weaponry', these aliens sure picked some piss-poor targets to test their weapons on...There's got to be a reasonable explanation somewhere...

True, what was I thinking about. I've just looked through my electrical course books and work, I reckon the cause is infact "anti-fridge weaponary", it's a secret project that was developed in case we need to go to war with Iceland. wink2.gif

I'm well aware of things like tvs holding deadly charges for 10 years or more, but do they catch on fire? I don't think so.

I doubt they would be, maybe a "side-effect" of some kind

And what are the chances of a UFO, and subsequent unexplained landing, occurring near the same town?

Ahhh Heck, They were only pulling pranks on all the people of the little town,  laugh.gif

Seriously though, I think I read this story some time ago and they could not figure it out immediatly but im sure they found a mundane reason for it though,

It's really quite hard for me to believe law enforcement officials acknowledge the reality of ETs.

A recent documentary on the phenomena for which there is still no 'down to earth' explanation.

The clip starts at 14:45 and finishes at 35:30.

An excellent summary of this case.

In the UK recently a massive fire was caused by a descending Chinese lantern, which are now getting banned

I guess its entirely possible someone saw a lantern on its way down and thought...UFO... then the big fire....
