She is completely baffled by the bizarre occurrence. Then, she decided to share a picture on Facebook to seek answers. She received several responses from users who found humor in her unsettling predicament.

'It's what I thought too when I first saw it, but please not in my house,' the woman explained in the post.  

'I was going around cleaning all windows and window sills and came across this,' she said. 

'I've never seen this before.' 

The picture was captured in the corner of her house, showing that this object appeared to be filled with dust and grime, with a flame-like surface that curled inward. In front of the window, a portion of this grimy object extended outward.

One person said: It looks like the fruiting body of a dry-rot fungus. It has reached that stage; it is quite advanced

A second wrote: It's dry rot, and the owner should fix this ASAP, or the house will fall down.

A third commented: Scrap it off, throw it out, and clean the area. Open the window and let the sun in too. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

Someone else commented: It's dry rot. That's not the responsibility of the tenant. It's found within the wood structure of the house due to dampness.

Another added: If someone "came across this" only after it has grown so big, then they certainly need to be cleaning their windows and sills more often.

That has been growing for ages; it has not just sprouted; it is probably months old. A little bit of housecleaning would eliminate that problem.  Someone added.

The object in her tenant might be mold-like accumulation over time.

Karl Coppen, the Special Projects and Operational Manager at MouldMen, a company specializing in mold removal from homes, explained that the fungus had accumulated over time.

He explained that the fungus may have arisen due to the accumulation of water particles, leading to moisture buildup in a typically dry area of the house, ultimately resulting in the growth of this peculiar substance.

In the interview with Yahoo, Mr.Coppen explained that this mold-like substance likely developed due to moisture, which can facilitate rapid growth.

He said: "When we see these kinds of growths, it's generally when there is a good chance of moisture'.

'The higher the moisture, the quicker something can spore-like this.'
