At dusk today, traveling on I-4 eastbound just south of downtown Orlando, spotted fireball in the east.  Duration of sighting about three to four seconds.  Large with clearly flaming tail, greenish color.  Small piece seemed to break off and burn out before large mass burned up and disappeared from view.  Direction was roughly south to north.  No other reports on local news yet.  Event witnessed by both my wife and me.
