Canneto di Caronia Travel Guide
It's official, says a leaked government report. A bunch of unexplained fires three years ago in the northern Sicily town of Canneto di Caronia were caused by aliens.
A $2 million investigation involving experts--including a NASA scientist--has been looking into the incidents. At the time, household objects across the village were bursting into flames, including a pile of wedding presents, furniture and appliances.
If you travel to Canneto di Caronia today, you probably won't see any more exploding chairs, but who knows when the aliens the government says are responsible will return. For the record, Sicily's civil protection boss said they don't suspect little green men, as such; just "unnatural forces" with a whole lot of energy. Sounds like aliens to us.
