Large explosion leaves city confused

My girlfriend and I heard a loud and deep explosion unlike anything you would ever hear on any given night. I thought it must have been a large gas explosion, but according to news reports it wasnt the case.

Heres the only scoop I got on it so far, maybe it was a UFO? News clipping: Nah. It couldn't have been a meteorite. Could it? Mar, 23 2006 - 2:20 AM BURNABY/CKNW(AM980) - A loud explosion in Burnaby late last night has authorities scratching their heads.

About 11:05 the blast rattled windows and awakened neighbours near the Chaffey Burke Elementary School on Abbey Avenue.

Police responded with officers and a dog but came up empty handed. All they could find was a small hole in the ground.

No damage has been reported and there were no injuries.
