Fireball over San Fernando Valley, CA

I was looking westward at 8:45 pm I saw a bolide(?) coming in from the ocean shooting sparks out in a tail, about 5 seconds in duration, quite bright. It was on the left of the Hercules constellation, but because of the offshore cloud bank behind it, I could tell it would have come low in over the west San Fernando Valley.
