|fireball sighting report on Police/Fire scanner
I did not witness this myself.
Thursday evening, 21:00 hrs my scanner on channel 8830 Delta Vol. fire company, was alerted to a report of a large ball of fire falling to the ground and causing a surrounding fire.
Delta VFD responded and the 911 dispatcher said that the PA State Police had received 3 calls reporting a large ball of fire falling to the ground.
The 3 callers also reported that they thought they heard a low flying aircraft in the area just before the fireball was sighted.
I dont know what the flying object was:but I thought you may be interested.
