praguemonitor - The inhabitants of a family house in Strasice, west Bohemia, have been for weeks disturbed by paranormal events, such as frequent small fires and cracked window panes, that experts have not been able to explain so far, the daily Lidove noviny (LN) reports Monday.
Experts in psychotronics call such unexplainable occurrences "poltergeist," a ghost that manifests itself by moving and influencing objects in a particular location.
The Mracek family, living in the house, say they have to extinguish several small fires, up to 60 a day, of plastic bags, pictures as well as sockets though they have been disconnected from electricity supply. Moreover, window panes, electric bulbs and thermometers are cracking in the house and once water in the aquarium started boiling all of a sudden, LN writes.
The family cannot sleep calmly in the night over the mysterious phenomena.
"We are only waiting where it will start burning again. Our son has moved to his grandma, but we must stay here to be able to extinguish fires. It is our house, we built it ourselves and everything was all right for ten years. We cannot let it burn down," Hana Mrackova told the daily.
A geophysicist took measurements in the house and its surroundings on Sunday with the aim to detect some types of radiation that might provoke the paranormal events. However, he did not reveal their cause, LN writes.
The CEZ power supplier has also tried to solve the problem but its inspectors have not found anything abnormal in the house.
Now the Czech Telecommunication Office is to measure "high-frequency waves" in the building, the paper adds.
Strasice Mayor Jiri Hahner is concerned about the paranormal phenomena in the house, LN says.
"We do not want to fall for occultism. We will try to explain it in a scientific way. However it is hard as these phenomena are really unexplainable," Hahner told the paper.
He said the family suffers psychologically. If the situation does not improve within three week, the municipality will offer them another housing since it is dangerous to live in the house, he added.
"Its demolition is naturally a radical solution, but it is still their house, they do not want to give it up," Hahner told LN.
