Bright flare up object durring twilight

My friend and I were sitting on the back porch of my house when we saw a white light travelling fairly quickly north of Saint Thomas, USVI. We watched it disapear behind a cloud and 2 seconds later we saw the clouds light up in a bright orange/red flare for less than a second. It was near the end of twilight and very few stars were visable.
