Locals blamed supernatural causes for the many unexplained fires in their small village, however after further investigation secret military experiments could be the cause of all the strange occurrences.
Since January 2004, something of very strange is happening to Canneto di Caronia, a small town located in Sicily, Italy.
Here's a quick list of the unexplained phenomena occurred so far in Canneto di Caronia: all stuff witnessed, reported, observed, caught on camera etc..
TV, refrigerators, washing machines, mixers etc. that switch on by themselves.
Cell phones charging their batteries spontaneously, even when unplugged.
Boats, Cables, beds, sofas, chairs, cookers, vacuum cleaner, TV, refrigerators, washing machines, cables catching fire spontaneously, even when unplugged.
Air conditioners literally melting spontaneously
Car glasses imploding
Car glasses found with small, perfectly rounded holes, as being hit by some invisible bullets
Aubergines coloured like rainbows
Plants burst into flames selectively, on a squared area
Unexplained magnetic fields peaks detected
Pen drives getting erased spontaneously
Compasses … loosing their orientation
Automatic gates opening and closing randomly
Car alarms ringing with no reason, and randomly
Mysterious death of animals, both from ground and sea
UFOs and the Mystery of Canneto di Caronia
Mysterious Spontaneous Combustions Return to Sicilian City
In 2007, an Italian newspaper published a leaked government report which blamed the fires on “aliens” because they were “caused by high power electromagnetic emissions which were not man-made and reached a power of between 12 and 15 gigawatts.”
And now the spontaneous combustions are back again and increasing in frequency. Starting in late summer 2014, residents reported unexplained fires in furniture, stacks of folded clothes and a car. As a result, the poor citizens of Canneto di Caronia have been evacuated again while firefighters put out blazes and look again for causes.
This time, suggestions include UFOs, a Tesla-type Magnifying Transmitter, ghosts or evil spirits or even a troubled young person who is pyrokinetic. Sicily’s council member for health and safety Vittorio Alfieri thinks the cause is “an entity” that transfers “from one house to another.”
Or something else?
For example, if the R.E. Ginna reactor operates at 581 MW capacity for 24 hours, it will generate 13,934 megawatthours (MWh).
At this point, the secretary of CUN reveals that “40% of UFO sightings reported to us, took place in the area of Caronia, in a very narrow range.
He also add that in general, the appearance of the objects both spotted and photographed is spherical, or semi-spherical, while the witnesses report that their movement is apparently intelligent..
Question to the coordinator of the task-force: “Are all these phenomena confirmed? Did you make some assessment on their reality?” answer: “We applied a criteria: we considered all the cases that were related to that specific type of cause (strong electromagnetic impulse): now, it’s hard to say whether there’s some case that has nothing to do with the “main cause” (i.e. some guy who deliberately burst something), but the majority if not the totality is related. Besides, there’s the UFO facet: I CONFIRM that we have in our hands a remarkable, significant amount of documentation, witness, photographs, videos about UFOs.

I was about to bring in the Italy/Sicily connection when I read the first sentences. Some things are off in that article.

But how? 12 to 15 gigawatts that's a lot. On a ship?
Mysterious fires returned again in mid-2014. On March 5, 2015 police arrested and charged Giuseppe Pezzino, 26, with arson, conspiracy to commit fraud, and sounding a false alarm in association with the mysterious fires.
His father, Antonino Pezzino, has also been implicated.
The Italian military police had installed hidden cameras in the streets after the fires started again in July 2014. Video captured about 40 incidents implicating Giuseppe (and occasionally, Antonino). Further evidence was gathered by phone taps

In 2007, the task force, after closing the investigations and monitoring, leaked an interim report which raised more questions instead of providing some answers: and the conclusion was that the “bizarre” events were "caused by hundreds of high-power electromagnetic emissions which were not man-made and reached a power between 12 and 15 gigawatts."
Francesco Mantegna Venerando, Sicily's Civil Protection chief who co-ordinated the report, also said "This is just one possibility. We are also looking at another one which involves the testing of top-secret weapons by an unknown power which are also capable of producing an enormous amount of energy." And "This is not the final report. We are still working on our conclusions and this has been leaked," he concluded.

I remember this case and it opens a deep rabbit hole. Military direct energy testing is the best solution ... and oops.
Other mysterious events in Canneto
Mauritanian grass roots carbonize
While the fires burnt throughout the city, other mysterious events were reported in and around the village. Strangely, the roots of hundreds of plants of the species Ampelodesmos Mauritanicus, a plant commonly called Mauritanian grass, were carbonized up to the top of the root. The upper part of the plants suffered only superficial burns and other plant species remained completely unharmed.
Harris says that when the events started she spoke with a man in the Italian Navy who worked in intelligence in Rome at the Italian Navy Academy. Harris says, “He told me spheres of light were coming out of the water and it was pretty terrifying, that I should not involve myself.”
