OWASSO, OK -- An Owasso man's home had a close encounter with a hot air balloon.

John Fenrich and his grandson, Alex, were driving home from breakfast Saturday morning when they saw a hot air balloon floating over their neighborhood.

As they got closer to home, Fenrich says it was obvious that the balloon was coming down, over his house.

"The pilot was going hot and heavy with the flames to get it over my house," Fenrich said. "The basket just missed the house."

Pictured to the right, Fenrich sent a photo of the close call.
