An unidentified flying object was seen crashing into a mountain in central Queensland this morning.
Police are on their way to the remote site near Takilberan Creek in southwest Gladstone, but details about the incident are still unclear.
A spokeswoman told ninemsn police had received a report of "something falling from the sky that resulted in a fire".
According to the The Courier Mail newspaper, witnesses saw "a bright flash and explosion" leading to speculation it could have been a meteorite or space junk.
The possibility of a plane crash has been ruled out as there were no emergency calls received from aircraft.
An emergency services spokesman said fire services had been notified of the explosion but had not attended the scene.
LATEST: A FLAMING object seen crashing into a mountain in central Queensland this morning is believed to be a meteorite or space junk.
Police in four wheel drives and a helicopter are scouring thick bushland at Takilberan Creek northwest of Gin Gin where a bright flash and explosion were seen on a mountainside this morning.
Property owner Hazel Marlin told ABC Radio the mountain was covered in smoke.
The spectacle was initially treated as a possible plane crash but is now believed to be a meteor or space junk falling to earth.
Police said the Australian Search and Rescue Authority received no mayday or distress calls from aircraft.
The AGL Action Rescue helicopter has been tasked to search the area about 35km north of Gin Gin in central Queensland.
Police are also conducting a ground search of the thickly wooded area.
Earlier, police said there was a fire on the ground in the area but details were still sketchy .
The spokeswoman said they had been notified that a witness may have seen ``something fall out of the sky'' into the side of a mountain early this morning.
“Somebody thought they saw something fading or falling out of the sky but there’s been no emergency calls from aircraft,” the spokeswoman said.
“It may be something like the nature of space junk or a meteor.’’
Space authorities said it was not uncommon for natural material to hit the earth, with about 100 tonnes of material entering the earth's atmosphere every day.
But most said it was unlikely to be a meteorite because they were far too cold to spark fires.
A couriermail.com.au reader wrote in to say they were driving to work, west of Dalby, about 6am when they saw a ``flaming object dropping out of the sky''.
``The object looked too close to be a falling star. I expect it was a meteorite. It was only visible for a few seconds - too quick for any photos.''
A UFO Research Queensland spokeswoman said they had received no reports about the incident

Lee began with a brief description of the mechanics of remote viewing followed by information gleaned by this technique relevant to UFO research. Some of the information he covered related to the Voyager satellite to Mars. Remotely viewed information showed that something lifted off from Mars, came towards the satellite, shone a beam onto the satellite to scan for life, found there was none and shut the satellite down. Another incident was the malfunctioning Phobos satellite. Remotely viewed information revealed that an object was next to the satellite and this was supported by a photograph taken by a Russian cosmonaut showing an object next to the satellite.
Lee went on to speak about crop circles and the video clips taken showing small spheres sometimes captured on video flying over them. Military remote viewers had previously revealed these spheres to be natural, semi-soft and not man-made. Other remotely viewed information declares that people are living under the surface of Mars in pressurised containers. These people know we have the ability to detect them but we are still a long way off from making contact with them. Finally, the CIA are aware that objects are lying all over the desert in the US and that UFOs are using these as guiding beacons
BUT NOTE: Lee constantly stressed throughout his presentation that remotely viewed information should be taken lightly until such time as feedback or corroborating evidence confirms the information. Sometimes this may take up to ten years.
