A strange phenomenon was witnessed Thursday evening before the shades of night had set in. What appeared to be a large meteor came out of the western sky, and decended in the direction of Brooms Bottom, leaving a long firey trail behind it. We wonder if that was the cause of the forest fire between Brooms Bottom and Lark Harbour.
