HA NOI – An 11-year-old girl, alleged to have the power to transmit intense heat, has set fire to furniture in her family's apartment in Ho Chi Minh City without using matches or a lighter, her father claims.

In a description of the phenomena, reminiscent of Stephen King's book The Fire Starter, the father, who asked not to be named, said the family had noticed recently that the girl had the ability to make things burn without actually touching them.
He said Saturday's fire had caused severe damage to the residence.
"My daughter has been suffering from a strange illness for about a month," he said.
Du Quang Chau, director of the research centre of Radiesthesia Energy, in HCM City said the child had been sent to the centre for checking after the fire. (The concept of radiesthesia is based on the fact that objects carry energy and radiate at a specific frequency, much like the theory of vibrational frequencies described in homeopathy.)
Chau said that during tests on the child, energy coming from her body made the surface of sockets and electric cables burn.
He said the result of the test led to his conclusion that the girl's right cerebral hemisphere showed a very rare and strange phenomenon, which would be likely to create strong energy and temperature and could cause furniture to catch fire if she stood nearby.
Meanwhile, the father said the child was now acting normally and was still going to school.
The father said the family was appealing for help from the hospital and scientists to identify or diagnose the girl's "disorder" and treat her. – VNS
