glowing tree stump scares campers in brighton IL in 1981

in 1981 my uncle arrived home with a small piece of wood that held a remarkable story.

he was informed by his father in law in brighton illinois two men camping were scared. apparently they saw something glowing during the night and observed a tree stump that was glowing in the dark. my uncle actually was provided a piece of wood by the men and gave it to me in a sandwich bag. i kept the wood over night and after no results i threw it away. obviously being 6 at the time i did not think to save it.there were no craft or objects seen but i belive it is a real incident and is very mysterious.
