A couple visiting Area 51 captured photographic evidence of a remarkable fire that has locals and nearby Las Vegas residents worried about what might have gone up in smoke (and spread through the air) at the top-secret military base.
The man recalled noting several roiling plumes of smoke as they approached the final gate leading into Area 51.
“Really weird smoke over there. What could be going on?”
The couple pulled to the side of the road where other cars were parked, watching the smoking fire. Within minutes, the infamous “white truck” security team came to the scene and blocked the road leading toward the fire.
The couple filmed the event in 2012 but feared retribution if they published the video. They uploaded the video to YouTube this week.
