HANOVER TWP.- It’s not raging infernos or blazing buildings that give some of Hanover Township’s finest the chills at night, but ghosts sure do.
Commissioners unanimously approved a motion at Monday night’s meeting to allow the Luzerne County Ghost Hunters to conduct a paranormal investigation at two of the township’s firehouses.
Commissioner Robert Burns said members of the Hanover Green and Lee Park firehouses contacted Luzerne County Ghost Hunters after they believed they witnessed paranormal activity at the buildings. Burns did not go into detail.
“We’ve approved stranger things,” said Burns. “I just want people to be aware that there’s no cost to the township.”
According to the group’s website, Luzerne County Ghost Hunters was formed in 2007 and has conducted investigations in Hanover Township, as well as Wilkes-Barre and Philadelphia.
Burns did not know when the investigation would begin.
