The Devil's Well again surprised the inhabitants with its oddities. The summer of 1932 turned out to be very hot. The whole crop was burned in the field. The villagers decided to act. One dark night they gathered in the churchyard with prayer books and crosses in their hands and prayed until dawn, sprinkling holy water on the graves of the deceased.

By morning, a miracle happened: the sky was covered with dark clouds and it began to rain. At first it was shallow, then stronger and stronger, until finally a downpour hit. Raging streams of cold water mixed with hail. Only in the evening this frenzy of nature gradually calmed down.

And then the most incredible thing happened: three houses located at different ends of the village burst into flames almost simultaneously. Their sodden roofs and walls blazed as if it were dry straw.

The cause of such a terrible fire could not be found out.
