Bright white fireball, turned green as it fell and finally "burned out"

Hillsvile, VA...Bright white object falling from sky, turned to green just before it "burned out". Had a tail much like meteorite but was very bright/metallic and was very close. It wasn't far above the tree line when it dissipated. Have seen 2 similar objects over Galax, VA, also but did not document dates...they were identical except were white and faded to vivid blue instead of green.
