Default Mystery foam fills street in Santa Clara

A mysterious foam has filled a street in Santa Clara.

A test of fire-suppression foam by a company near San Jose Mineta International Airport went awry, filling nearby streets with the white substance, according to Santa Clara Police, CBS San Francisco reports.

As "mysterious" as the "unnatural" death-and-disintegration in an acidic hot spring over at Yellowstone.

However, I will concede that the general public was likely mystified about the source until such time as news sources cleared up the mystery. But even then, the sentence structure here is clumsy at best and fails to properly report the incident.
