— A National Weather Service balloon fell onto the yard of a Ridge Road home, southeast of Angier, Thursday morning, Johnston County emergency dispatch officials said.

Tammy Ellis, who lives at the house, said the orange balloon resembled a parachute. A note on the end of a string asked anyone who found the balloon to call the local fire department, she said.

Officials said that no one was injured.
