Long Description:
Petite source d'eau qui frétille de Métane a sa surface, j'uste assez pour obtenir une petite flame quelques secondes.


L'histoire se passe aux Forges du Saint-Maurice. La fille du maître de forge tombe amoureuse d'un garçon du village. Une nuit d'orage, elle appelle le Diable et lui demande une faveur : "J'aimerais que l'homme que j'aime tombe amoureux de moi". Le Diable lui répond : "Accordé! Il faut cependant qui j'aie libre accès à ta maison". Marché conclu! La jeune fille va prendre la clé de la demeure et la jette dans la Saint-Maurice. Aussitôt, des flammes apparaissent et la main du Diable s'empara de la clé. Derrière lui, pour dissimuler son passage, il laisse une flaque d'eau qui subsiste toujours. Si l'on approche une flamme de cette étendue d'eau, elle s'enflamme.

Small water source wriggling Metane of its surface, I ust enough to get a small flame a few seconds.


The story takes place at the Forges du Saint-Maurice. The daughter of ironmaster falls in love with a boy from the village. One stormy night, she called the Devil and asked a favor: "I want the man I love fall in love with me." The Devil replied: "Granted that I must however have free access to your house". Bargain! The girl will be the key to the house and empties into the St. Maurice. Immediately, flames appeared and hand the Devil took the key. Behind him, to conceal its passage, it leaves a puddle that always remains. If a flame of this body of water is approached, it ignites.
