Summary/Description: The local cathedral had on its roof a pyramid covered with lead, between 1930 (7:30 pm) and 2000 (10:00 pm), thunder fell on that pyramid, and it caught fire, exploded, and fell down with a stupendous noise.
People rushed to the cathedral from all parts of the town and saw in the midst of the lighting and smoke, a “demon” of a green color, with a long green tail, doing his best to keep the fire going. This account, which was published in Paris, is supplemented by a more complete version printed in Rennes.
This latter version adds that the demon was seen clearly by all, inside the fire, sometimes green, sometimes blue and yellow. The authorities threw into the roaring fire a quantity of Agni Dei, close to one hundred and fifty buckets of water, and forty or fifty carloads of manure—to no avail. The demon was still there, and the fire kept happily burning.
Something drastic had to be done, a consecrated host was placed inside a loaf of bread and thrown into the flames, and then blessed water was mixed with bile given by a nurse of above reproach conduct and spread over the demon and the burning pyramid. This the visitor could not stand, he whistled in a most horrible fashion and flew away.
