Was it a crash or coincidence

HARDIN, Ky. (AP) - October 1, 2012

Authorities in western Kentucky searched for a possible plane crash for two hours Saturday night.

A driver called in a report after hearing a boom and seeing an orange glow in sky.

But officials in Marshall and Calloway counties didn't find a downed plane.

The Paducah Sun reports authorities think the glow in sky was the result of a church group shooting off fireworks.

At about the time, a gas can caught fire and exploded.
