Single 30lb iron found by accident.

If a 30 lb iron metiorite is found by accident. Wouldn't that mean that there could be more in the area? Or do iron metiorites sometimes come down as a single unit?  I'm under the assumption there is usually a strewnfeild asosiated with finds.  My question is if there's one is there more in the area?
