HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Residents of a suburban Detroit community want to know how a black, oily substance ended up splashed on their homes, vehicles and property.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports gunk was found Sunday in parts of Macomb County’s Harrison Township, apparently after falling from above. WXYZ-TV reports residents were told that the tar-like substance doesn’t appear to be harmful.

Paul Schlutow says he first thought it was from birds, but it appeared too oily. It covered his pickup and dotted his driveway. He suspects it’s from aircraft.

The affected area is near Selfridge Air National Guard Base. But in a statement Wednesday, the base says there’s no evidence so far that the substance came from military aircraft.
