Ball of red/yellow light followed by a trail of fire falls to earth in or around Bluffton, SC

Was watching UFO in sky and changed direction to look at stars. As I turned to look, I saw a red and yellow flash going from the sky to the earth. It happened so quickly that I wasn't sure what I'd seen. There was an object in front and a trail of fire (?) coming behind. Object definitely came to earth with a tail of light behind it. Don't know if this is a shooting star, meteorite, or what but following the sighting of UFO, I don't know what to believe. I'm 59 years old and a financial officer in a company owned by my husband. I was the only witness to this.
