Halloween proved to be an interesting night for law enforcement in at least four Western Washington counties after reports of a meteor falling to Earth.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said deputies investigated a possible meteor falling somewhere near I-5 and Exit 212, between Stanwood and Arlington. K9 Officers also responded, but nothing was found.

Deputies cleared the scene, but said they "[assume] it is a meteor, unless we hear otherwise."

Bill Gillam from Arlington said on Twitter, "Sounds like a meteor, space junk or aliens entered Washington airspace somewhere in Skagit County." He went on to say, "Last report was Hamilton in Skagit County."

An Arlington police officer confirmed seeing something fall from the sky. Viewers also emailed KING 5 News from Gig Harbor and Burien saying they also saw it.

The Federal Aviation Administration said they also fielded calls from people who reported they saw a meteor.

So far, nothing has been found.
