bright flash followed by fireball falling from sky seen over PHX INT airport restricted air space

My girlfriend and I were about to walk into our house, after smoking a cigarette, when suddenly, and without any prior sounds or notions of aircraft, suddenly a bright flash light up the sky north east of our back yard and in a trail of bright yellowish white flames with blue to yellow flame at the point of whatever the object was came souring down at a rapid rate towards the direction of mill ave I'd say at about rio saldo possibly tempe town lake no explosion was heard no sounds at all in fact except a car alarm in the distance at about the moment i thought it would have landed and dogs barking all the way up to my neighbors dogs about 5 to ten minutes later i heard the sound of low pitch booms 3 of them i do not know if that is relevant.even now the strange trail that the object left can barely be seen in the sky. Honestly if it werent for the fact that my tags expired 5/31/16 i would have driven to site

((NUFORC Note: Object reported by the news as a probable meteor. We agree. See photos of smoky trail left high in the sky above Arizona. PD))
