Aliens were responsible for a series of unexplained fires in
fridges, TV=92s 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

Dozens of experts including scientists, electrical engineers and

power of between 12 and 15 gigawatts."

The report also detailed a possible UFO landing close to the
village, citing "burnt imprints which have not been explained

who coordinated the report, said: "This is not the final report.
We are still working on our conclusions and this has been
