Fireballs seen from Ceres, California

We were driving West on Whitmore Ave. in Ceres, California. I don't remember which night it was, but it was near the 12th of January. We were just starting our incline as we were starting to cross the overpass and we saw a three flashes of light. Each flash of light looked like a small orange fireball and they appeared and disappeared in three distinct spots. It was almost as if someone had lit something on fire and put it out really quickly and it was too high in the sky to be a firework.

My partner who was driving asked if I had seen what he just did. I confirmed with him that I did. We entered the freeway and our view was blocked by trees. We saw a few more flashes behind the trees and after the trees cleared, we saw one more of the objects flash and disappear.

I watched for more on the rest of the drive home and I did not see anything after that.
