Mir is falling on my head?

Has anyone heard anything about a piece of Mir landing near Vancouver, BC,
Canada? Last night,(around 9pm PST) I say the most amazing light show
which involved two bright streams of material flying very low overhead.
One very bright orange piece appeared to hit ground, as it was followed
by low, thundering noises. The rumour here is that it was a spent Russian
fuel cell. Could something like this actually hit the earth? If so, why
are they dropping these things on my head? ;)
