New Hampshire: Report of meteor in sky before fire

New Hampshire: Report of meteor in sky before fire (WMUR/CNN)

Fire crews were still battling a forest fire in New Hampshire Wednesday amid a report of a meteor sighting in the area.

The blaze was first reported Tuesday morning.

According to the fire chief, a man said on the previous evening that he was driving in the area when he saw a meteor tearing across the sky.

Officials say they haven't yet seen evidence of a meteorite, and they aren't sure if that was what actually caused the fire.

The fire chief says the blaze doubled in size overnight, growing to roughly 50 acres.
