Blue-white fireball comes down on Reno, Nevada

I was working in my home office after dinner. My window right over my desk looks directly west over Reno. A bright light caught my eye, and I looked out. A large fireball / meteor type of thing was coming down -- looked like straight down. Its brightness was about like a car headlight from a half-block away. It appeared to go down between here and the Reno airport. The airport is about three miles west; there is farmland & wetlands between here and there. I went outside and whatever was there was now gone. Lots of dogs barking. Nothing on the local news, so I figured I'd post a report and see if anybody else saw it. Probably a natural thing, but it's the brightest and biggest such thing I've ever seen in a city.
