FOREST GROVE, Oregon – A mysterious sound has people in an Oregon neighborhood baffled.

One of the Forest Grove residents recorded the sound and is asking for help in identifying it.

One woman told KATU the noise has woken her up several times. Another woman said she’s heard the noise for weeks and at all hours.

Forest Grove Fire Marshal Dave Nemeyer told ABC News that a resident described it as coming from the middle of the street.

“It’s definitely a horrendous noise. I have no idea what the noise is. To me, it sounds like the sound of train tracks, that metal screeching sound, but there are no train tracks near her home … so that’s obviously ruled out,” Nemeyer said.

A water valve, a gas leak and wildlife are a few of the things that have already been ruled out.
