ZORAZJE, Serbia, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Residents of a Serbian village said they are taking precautions to protect themselves from a vampire feared to have been resurrected when his home collapsed.

Miodrag Vujetic, a municipal assembly member in Zorazje, said residents are taking precautions against Sava Savanovic, a vampire rumored to have carried out his dark deeds at a watermill that recently collapsed, ABC News reported Thursday.

"People are very worried. Everybody knows the legend of this vampire and the thought that he is now homeless and looking for somewhere else and possibly other victims is terrifying people," Vujetic said. "We are all frightened."

Vujetic said locals "are all taking precautions by having holy crosses and icons placed above the entrance to the house, rubbing our hands with garlic, and having a hawthorn stake or thorn."
