Burning flying pancake

A 'luminous' donut fell from the sky

Williamport, Pa. 17 (AP) -- A small doughnut-shaped object that witnesses say they saw fall from the sky, surrounded by flames, brings the flying saucer mystery to the surface today and the experts of the American army will begin an investigation. The object was found in a public park in Laporte, Pa., 25 miles northeast of here. Witnesses said the disk fell, surrounded by flames, on August 5 and scorched grass within a ten-foot radius. The disc was shaped like a donut and was a bit smaller than a tire inner tube.

[Photo caption:] Residents of Laporte, Pa., say they saw this disc-shaped object fall and hit the ground in a public park to start a fire by burning an area of twelve feet around.
