CORINTH, S.C. -- This is the story of an unidentified flying
object that fell from the sky and set a field on fire. But the
woman who spotted it doesn’t expect to ever find out what it

It happened Sunday night in Corinth just outside of Gaffney.

Carrie Martin and her husband saw a fiery object floating across
the sky and now wish they hadn’t.

"The object in the sky looked like a round thing,” says Martin.
"And on the bottom it had five rods, like sparklers, red hot

They were almost home, driving down the same Corinth Road
they’ve driven down everyday for 23 years.

"We watched it pass over the car. We stopped and it passed over
the phone lines,” she says. "And this thing was not dropping
heavy, it was floating around up there. We drove down the road
and cam"

The Martins called 911 and when firefighters arrived Martin says
they saw a small burning brush fire at the time.

"We checked with local Greenville-Spartanburg and Charlotte
airports, and found no history of a plane reporting trouble.”

And to make this even more of a mystery, firefighters found a

to know where it is.

Martin wonders if the federal aviation people came and got it.

Everyone seems to have a theory.

One person says it could be something from outer space like
space trash.

"People think this is like something you read in the National
Enquirer,  but this really happened to us,” says Martin. "It’s
like reading a  mystery book and someone’s torn out the last
chapters and we never know what happened.”
