A large noise, possibly a sonic boom, was heard across Wise and Tarrant counties early Thursday afternoon, but no explosions were reported, according to officials.

Residents in both counties called their sheriff's offices between 1 and 2 p.m. to report the noise.

Officials checked for explosions, particularly around natural gas production sites, but they didn't find anything.

"Nothing is blowing up, nothing is on fire and there's no wreckage," said Terry Grisham, spokesman for the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office.

A Wise County sheriff's dispatcher said her office received numerous reports of a loud bang, but nothing was found on the ground.

Grisham said Tarrant County officials called Naval Air Station Fort Worth, and were told that military officials were checking into it.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Bradley Dawson, base spokesman, said citizens and reporters have called to ask about the noise.

"At this moment we actually have people on base investigating," Dawson said. "We're trying to see where our planes were at and what's going on.

"When you have, like, six people call, including news stations, we'll get on it."

No other information was available at 3 p.m.
