MYSTERIOUS 'LARGE FIREBALL FALLING TO EARTH' CRASHES IN SALEM, POLICE INVESTIGATE
Ok, I may have gotten the state wrong nut the date was correct...Dallas is pretty far away from Salem
Police are investigating a mysterious "large fireball falling to the earth" spotted in Salem, Oregon, in the southwest of Polk County.
The fiery trail was reported by a local resident around 4:50 p.m. (local time) on Thursday, according to Lt. Dustin Newman, a spokesman for the Polk County Sheriff's Office (PCSO), the Statesman Journal reports.
The incident was reported as a plane crash but its exact location remains undetermined, according to the PCSO, which posted images of the sighting on its official Facebook page.
"PCSO is currently investigating a large fireball falling to the earth in the southwest area of Polk County. The fireball was reported as a plane crash and PCSO is working to locate a possible landing location and exactly what the fireball is," the PCSO said on its official Facebook page.
"After the 911 call came we were able to get a helicopter in the area (as it is pretty remote) and they didn't see anything of concern. There were no reports of downed aircraft either. We really believe it was a meteor as yesterday there was a somewhat rare meteor shower in our area as well," Sheriff Mark Garton from the PCSO told Newsweek.
"The exact location of the fireball is unknown. PCSO will utilize aircraft during daylight hours tomorrow [Friday] in an attempt to cover the rough terrain in the area and wrap up the search. PCSO has utilized all available aviation tracking systems and no planes have been lost," the PCSO said on Facebook.

The Federal Aviation Administration has yet to report any plane crashes in the area, while several national and local authorities, including the U.S. Forest Service, a Life Flight Network helicopter and a local timber company, are working together to determine the origin of the fireball, Newman confirms, the Salem Statesman Journal reports.
The American Meteor Society (AMS) and NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) have also yet to report fireballs in the area.
