Orange fireball in sky near LAX dissipating into glowing ember

On 9/13/04 at 9:05pm I observed in the southeast sky, east of LAX, approxiamately 10-15 miles away and less than 10,000 feet a stationary orange, fuzzy fireball aobut 80% the size of a full moon. As it dissapated, it became redder and sharper and I could even make out "fire chunks". A few seconds later, it ended as a pinpoint glowing ember and then this disappeared. The whole event lasted approximately 10 seconds.
