Paper: Fort Wayne News City: Fort Wayne, Indiana Date: Tuesday, July 14, 1896 Page: 1 METEOR FALLS Strikes a House and Kills Two Children - Brings Rain Chichihua, Mex., July 14. - Particulars have reached here of the fall of a meteor in a small mining town of Santos Reis, this state. The meteor was of immense size and as it descended through the air it was a molten mass of metal. It made its descent at noon, and was accompanied by a report louder than that made by a cannon. It struck the house of a miner and demolished the building killing two children and then buried itself in the ground to a great depth. A large part of the meteor was broken off when it struck, and it was sent to the National museum at the City of Mexico. There has been no rain in that section for nearly a year, but within twenty minutes after the fall of the meteor the sky became overcast with clouds and a heavy fall of rain took place.
