The potential exorcists were two men dressed in black, according to Dickson City Police Chief William Bilinski. The two men were “singing and moaning” in the driveway in the woods and “seemed to be trying to perform an exorcism,” Bilinski told the Scranton Times-Tribune.
Another officer told Philly Voice that it was a “such a session for the dead.”
The humans were escorted out of the building – but it is not known if the alleged evil spirits were brought back to hell.
There is no indication that the exorcism has anything to do with a recent drop in the price of timber.

Authorities did not say why the men believed the wood could be possessed.
No human or haunted two-fours have been charged in connection with the incident.
