I work in a large historical house 5-10 days a month. The house is still lived in, and has been for over 200 hundred years.
There are stories that one of the occupants who had lived in the home for 40 years. Who also died in the house, still haunts it. People say they have
seen his ghost, he gets blamed for showers getting turned on, lights going on and off, pipes bursting, that kind of stuff.
Mostly just odd or mischievous things. I never really bought into ghost stories, not that I don't keep an open mind. I have just never seen or
experienced anything out of the ordinary.
Well the other day, I come into the house around 10:00am and I smell gas. I go to investigate. I find all 3 fireplaces on the first floor just pumping
gas into the house. And I mean really pumping, the air was all wavey from the propane. Keep in mind it's already 85° outside, there is no reason
for the fireplaces to be on in the first place.
I got the lady of the house and she rounded up all her aides, and everyone agreed the fireplaces hadn't been used in at least a month.
And the gas valves weren't just on a little bit. All 3 in 3 separate rooms were cranked fully on.
So we can't blame anyone but the alleged ghost.
What bothers me, is that this wasn't some mischief or prank, this was nefarious. This could have been a catastrophic gas explosion.
