OK, in the ongoing saga of the electrical demon. The link to the entire story is below.
A series of spontaneous fires started in mid-January in the town of Canneto di Caronia in about 20 houses. After a brief respite last month, the almost daily fires have flared up again -- even though electricity to the village was cut off.

How're they gonna figure out what started the fires with the electriciy cut off???

Radio waves….. maybe, can anyone say “HAARP”????

Two fire trucks and a police jeep sit at the entrance of Canneto on alert for the next blaze while a van with a large, rotating antennae on top measures the radio waves.

EVIL grounding popping up again.

The hypotheses now range from a build-up of electrical energy caused by grounding wires running off the railway to a rare "natural phenomenon" in which surges of electricity rise from the earth's core.

Thought you guys might enjoy this today.

The generator caught fire too. Maybe it is the work of an arsonist.Or really far fetched somebody wants the land for something and is scarring the residents away

Maybe it's the ghost of Emile Volta, or Nicolo Tesla. Perhaps the goat is the better idea. LOL
