The tranquility of Fair Oaks neighborhoods is being shattered by some mysterious nighttime noises. Homeowners say they’re being startled by loud booms in the late evening hours.
One explosion was even caught on Ring video camera. The noises are loud enough to set off car alarms and wake people from their sleep.
“It rattles the windows, it sounds like a firework going off in my backyard,” said Dallis Stumpf.
The sounds are especially startling to those who have kids.
“She’s two-years-old and she comes out, ‘mommy what is that?’ and she freaks out,” Stumpf said.
The loud bangs have attracted so much attention that a Facebook group has been created to track the times and direction of the explosions. It now has more than 500 followers.
