Videos of a fire in the forest near the town of Privetnoye in the Omsk region of Russia is being reported by Russian news as having been started by a mysterious luminous object that fell from the sky.
According to Zazoom Social News, Russian newspaper Pro Town claims there were many witnesses on October 15 to a luminous object falling in the forest near Privetnoye before the fire occurred. They tried to put out the fire, but say that even foam could not quell the intense flames.
Videos of the fire and its aftermath have since appeared on YouTube. According to the description of one of the videos, the witness saw the object fall and stopped his car near the fire. He says the object was “very dazzling.” The witness says the fire caught the attention of the fire brigade and the local police, who finally concluded it was a pile of garbage. The witness does not seem convinced, and mentions discovering white crystals at the site.
Zazoom asks whether the object was a meteorite, UFO, or a piece of an experimental rocket. There is one more possibility, a hoax. We’ll have to keep an eye on Russian news to find out if more information comes to light.
