HA NOI — The case of an 11-year-old girl in HCM City's Tan Binh District claimed to have supernatural fire-starting powers is continuing to
baffle scientists. The girl, whose family claims she has an unusual mental power that can cause objects to burst into flames, has drawn a great deal
of attention from the Vietnamese media. The girl's father said he first became aware of that his child was unusual when the family home's electrical

power failures. He said the girl was taken to other houses where the same phenomenon took place each time. Her mattresses, fans and other equipment

Eleven year-old girl with ability of setting things on fire with her brain:

This part really caught my attention- the red streak on brain scan and especially how the wearing of the quartz affected it. Evidence something is
"Hung made the decision after doing tests on her at home Tuesday, including a scan that found a red streak on the right side of her brain. The
streak disappeared when she wore a quartz clip on her wrist but then she felt uncomfortable as if electricity was coursing through her body."
But the poor girl. I cannot imagine having to live in fear of igniting, melting things all around and sleeping beside buckets of water.etc. I've
heard of spontaneous combustion before but man, if this is the real deal, can you imagine? Do the Vietnamese hoax their news often? Not sure, but
this is a baffling case if true.
Thoughts ATS? Thanks in advance.
