Farmer in California Claims a Fiery Meteorite Destroyed His Home

A man who lives in rural California thinks that a flaming meteorite that plummeted to Earth struck and burned down his home. Remember that while extremely unlikely, it is nonetheless possible for this to occur. One in five people who have received CPR remembers what it was like to die, and it’s not that bad.

According to television news station KCRA, cattle farmer Dustin Procita’s home in Nevada County, California, caught fire on Friday night. “There was a loud bang. My porch was fully engulfed in flames when I stepped outside after smelling smoke, Procida told the local news.

In the meantime, a number of dashcams in the vicinity recorded a ball of light falling from the night sky around the time the fire started. Procida and many others in his community think the fireball started the housefire, despite the fact that the two incidents have not yet been connected in any official way.

Procida stated, “From everyone I have spoken to a ‘flaming ball’ descending from the sky landing in that general region. I did not see what it was. “After hearing about it from one person, I decided to keep it in the back of my mind. However, after that, two, three, or four more individuals entered and began chatting about it, continued Captain Josh Miller of the Penn Valley Fire Department.

Between 90 and 95 percent of meteors are thought to totally burn up when they collide with Earth’s atmosphere, producing a tremendous amount of heat and leaving a dazzling streak in the night sky. Estimates of the number of meteorites that impact the Earth’s surface vary, but a recent, credible study determined that roughly 6,100 meteorites, or 17 per day, impact the planet annually.

The majority will land in the seas and oceans because 71 percent of the surface of the Earth is covered by water, however, a sizeable portion will also fall on parts of the planet that are not inhabited. According to Wired, the likelihood that a meteorite will strike your home is one in 3,921,910,064,328. Therefore, your chances of winning the lottery’s top reward are much higher than your chances of having a burning space ball crash through your roof.

That seems exceedingly implausible (and it is), but against all odds, it has been reported to happen. In fact, there has even been one isolated instance of a person being struck directly by a meteorite. In the one-horse village of Oak Grove, which is close to Sylacauga, Alabama, on November 30, 1954, Ann Hodges was dozing off on her couch.

A grapefruit-sized meteorite that had just smashed through her roof struck her on her upper hip after rebounding off her wooden radio. Fortunately, she merely suffered a bad bruise, but the incident gave her the dubious distinction of being the only person in recorded history to have been struck by a meteorite. It is incredibly unlikely that a meteor actually struck the residence in Nevada County recently, but stranger things have happened.
