Home owner claims a ghost child is throwing a fit and causing fires in his residence in Thailand.
There have been more than 30 mysterious fires in a house in Nakhon Ratchasima province. A fortune teller told the house owner that it was the soul of a girl ghost, aged 2 who manifested her power to burn the house because she wanted to have a new house.
When journalists investigated, they found traces of fire in the bedroom, living room, and kitchen. Three wardrobes with pillows and clothes were burnt. The family has moved many of their belongings outside and sleep outside the home fearing the fires at night.
The fires began recently and the electrical wiring was checked.
Mr. Somjai Jaesoongnern, aged 30, who is the son of the house owner said that before the incidents occurred he had dreamt continuously for several nights that there was a girl, aged approximately 2 years old who pleaded to stay in this house but at first he didn’t pay attention about this matter and he also didn’t believe about the superstition but after the incident of fire burnings he asked a fortune teller who told him that there is a soul of a girl ghost named “Daeng” has resided in this house for over 30 years but she was not taken care of and she wanted to have the new and beautiful house to stay so she made trouble with this house.
No evidence is given of this history. The owner intends to contact the local monks to bless the house. Obviously, something sounds suspicious. There are not enough details given in the story but I suspect, as usually happens in these cases, that there are multiple natural or more likely human factors involved in these so called “mysterious” cases. The spooky superstition angle is a better sell for the media and many believe it.
