the pine barrens fire in suffolk county, NY back in the 1990's was also attributed, by some, to a downed craft.
In the year 1992 newspapers on Long Island New York reported a suspected UFO crash on November 24th in Haven Park located in Suffolk county. You can find reports on this event with an easy Google search.
I remember the event as I lived in Suffolk county New York at the time and recall all the talk and newspaper reports concerning this event. It seemed to be the main topic of conversation for a short time but soon lost its interest as the holidays were just starting and the UFO story seemed to lose its headlines to Santa and the Malls. I realize now this event was the big news of that entire year!

Any more details on that?
In late August-early September 1995, a series of major brush fires swept through the pine barrens region. The first major fire incident occurred in Rocky Point, but was extinguished within days of its outbreak. A larger, more catastrophic fire erupted in the Westhampton area just shortly after the Rocky Point blaze was brought to an end. The fire, aided by high winds and dry conditions, quickly spread, threatening area homes and businesses. The fire was nicknamed the "Sunrise Wildfire," as it engulfed both sides of Sunrise Highway, the major highway connecting the Hamptons region with the rest of Long Island. The fires closed down the highway and stopped railroad service, effectively cutting the Hamptons off from the rest of the island for days as firefighters from all over Long Island and the FDNY worked around the clock to battle the blaze.
By early September, the Sunrise Wildfire were extinguished, but the results of that fire, in addition to the Rocky Point fire, were disastrous: approximately 7,000 acres (28 km2) had burned, numerous homes and small businesses suffered damage, and 400 people were forced to evacuate their homes. The fire, which erupted during the peak of the Hamptons tourist season, resulted in a considerable economic blow for the region. However, the human toll was very light, a few firefighters suffered injuries; Luckily, nobody was killed in the event.
As of 2007, the region has all but recovered from the damage it sustained, although some vegetation still bears the scars of the fire.
While the cause of the fire is still being investigated by the FBI, arson does not appear likely. Instead, ideal fire conditions including wind, heat and a very dry forest, much of which is the result of mountain pine beetle damage, is the likely suspect.

I appreciate that we're in ooky, spooky 2012 and all and people are gonna try and connect UFOs to any news coverage possible, but this is a meteor and yes, it could easily have started a forest fire.

Okay, how about this?
Does anyone know if the military's unmanned space shuttle landed safely?
The eyewitness report from the Denver Post mentioned flaming silvery space junk coming down.
Could there be a military recovery cover-up going on?
TextOn the central east border of California / Nevada the dormant / extinct Mono Lake supervolcano has given off at least three large steam plume eruptive events yesterday ( july 2, 2012 ) in the afternoon going into sunset. Seen on College of Dupage visible GOES satellite image of CA / NV . We have been seen these "steam events" occur on a scale which seems to be increasing exponentially. What started as a few plume events has now spiraled out of control into entire states shutting off Aquifer access... cover stories of Al Queda starting fires... multiple hot springs, dormant volcanic areas, mines, caves, and drilling operations are now releasing steam on a massive scale. In some cases.. this steam is rapidly rising to produce HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS !!!
