Mystery foam invades Santa Clara street


Should you see a mysterious, unknown foam appear in voluminous amounts on your neighborhood street, it might not be best to dive into it with abandoned glee. But that’s just what some folks did today.

On Martin Avenue near San Jose International Airport, the foam appeared this afternoon.

“In footage captured on Facebook live by the news team, foam appeared to be coming from a building on the westside of the San Jose International Airport,” notes SFGate.

Shortly after the foam-ation, the Santa Clara Fire Department tweeted the following explanation.

The foam was reportedly nontoxic, as well as a lot of fun. Here are some scenes of the foaming:
