The LAist tipster who saw something from his Beverly Hills office window wasn't the only person to see the fireball. While few reports came in the Los Angeles area (the LAFD told LAist there were zero 911 calls), most calls came in from Riverside and San Bernardino counties. A San Bernardino County dispatch supervisor told the LA Times that "fire crews in Barstow and on I-15 near Stateline came up on the radio and reported an object in the sky moving very fast across the northern sky and described it as yellowish green in color with streaks of debris. It looked like it burned up before it hit the ground." The FAA reports no planes missing and officials searching for any sign of impact are not finding anything yet.
