PSICAN - Paranormal Studies and Inquiry Canada

NFLD & Labrador

In late November 1954 the RCMP investigated a case of mysterious fires being set in a St John's Newfoundland home. The house was listed as being owned by one Mike Parsons, and at the time of the fires was uninsured. Over a two week period spontaneous fires would erupt in various parts of the home, and destroyed a sack of sugar, a child's doll, a dictionary, and a box of religious tracts. Each of these items were reported to have burst into flame with no apparent cause. Investigations conducted by the RCMP, and local fire authorities did not turn up any known cause, and the fires remained a mystery.
