OSLO (Reuters) -An "unusually large meteor" briefly lit up southern Norway on Sunday, creating a spectacular sound and light display as it rumbled across the sky, and a bit of it may have hit Earth, possibly not far from the capital, Oslo, experts said. A web camera in Holmestrand, south of Oslo, captured a fireball falling from the sky and erupting into a bright flash lighting up a marina. The Norwegian Meteor network was analysing video footage and other data on Sunday to try to pinpoint the meteor's origin and destination.

Scores of wildfires raging across the Western United States' forest and scrub have belched so much smoke that it is helping an army of firefighters gain ground on the nation's biggest blaze, Oregon's Bootleg fire, by blocking sunlight, officials said on Saturday. Both the National Weather Service and officials with the Oregon Department of Forestry said smoke in the lower atmosphere coming from California wildfires has floated over the Bootleg fire, which has scorched more than 401,000 acres in Oregon about 250 miles (402 km) south of Portland. "It's called 'smoke shading' and it's basically put a lid on the lower atmosphere for now, blocking sunlight and creating cooler, more stable surface conditions," said Eric Schoening, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

"There was nothing left."The Bootleg Fire, one of more than 80 active wildfires that have charred about 1.3 million acres in recent weeks, has ravaged the southern Oregon community of Sycan Estates, leaving behind a trail of ash-covered debris.Residents like Gage Clark, who evacuated ahead of the wildfire, returned to their community only to find their homes and business gone, their possessions destroyed."I thought I still had my saw mill shop and possibly this shop so I came back thinking that I still had something to come home to and when I got here I was actually kind of gut shot. It was knots in the stomach. There was nothing left."Local news reports said the fire had decimated 112 homes and 169 outbuildings.The Bootleg Fire is Oregon’s third largest wildfire on records dating back to 1900.Located about 250 miles south of Portland, the fire had ripped through more than 400,000 acres of drought-parched brush and timber as of Friday, destroying at least 67 homes near the California border.At its peak, an estimated 2,000 people were displaced by evacuations."We just got to try to band together as a community and rebuild and get people's lives back in order. It'll never be back to what it was, of course, but we got to try to do what we can. Because we all still own our property and a lot of people don't have anywhere else to go."
