Investigators in Penn, California are trying to determine if a house fire was started by something from out of this world.
Several people in northern California reported seeing a fireball in the sky on Friday November 4th. On that same night, crews were called to a house fire at a cattle ranch in Penn Valley, which is 45 miles northeast of Sacramento. The home owner said that he heard a loud crash and bang before he started smelling smoke but he wasn't aware of the bright light that lit the sky above his home, although his security camera captured part of it.
Fire crews put out the fire which destroyed the home, but say they're unsure of how it started. It may take weeks to determine the actual cause, but investigators say the more they learn, the more the believe a meteorite is to blame.
