Flash of light may have been meteor

BUNKER HILL, W.Va. - The flaming object a Virginia motorist reported seeing streaking across the skies of southern Berkeley County Monday night might have been a meteor.

The call came in at 8:55 p.m., according to a dispatcher at Berkeley County Central Dispatch.

The Winchester man said he was northbound on Interstate 81 when he saw the object in the sky and told them he thought it might be an airplane on fire.

"We didn't find a thing. We looked for about half an hour," said a firefighter with the South Berkeley Volunteer Fire Company.

Central dispatch checked with a number of airports around the region, but received no reports of missing airplanes.
