Aliens Attack Earth - Official

Village Fires Blamed On UFOs

A series of bizarre fires in a village were caused by aliens
testing weapons, Italian government officials believe.

A report into the unexplained fires in fridges, TVs and mobile
phones blamed creatures from outer space.

Canneto di Caronia was the centre of world attention three years
ago after residents reported everyday household objects bursting
into flames.

News footage at the time showed electrical appliances, cookers,
a pile of wedding presents and items of furniture smouldering.

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

Arson was quickly ruled out and at one stage an amazed scientist
was interviewed after he described how he saw an unplugged

to Caronia after "burnt imprints which have not been explained
were found in a field".

Yesterday, Francesco Mantegna Venerando, Sicily's civil
protection chief, said: "This is not the final report. We are
still working on our conclusions and this has been leaked.

"We are not saying that little green men from Mars started the
fires but that unnatural forces capable of creating a large
amount of electromagnetic energy were responsible.

"This is just one possibility. We are also looking at the fires
being caused by testing of top secret weapons by an unknown
power who are also capable of producing an enormous amount of
