UFO streaks past helicopter during Colorado wildfires

This was news footage from the last 2 minutes of MSNBC's Ed Show from Friday June 29th. The segment was on the wildfires in Colorado during the last 2 minutes of the show. The footage shows a helicopter pouring chemicals onto a fire on a hillside in dense smoke, and suddenly from the lower left of the screen, a white light streaks by from the lower left of the screen diagonally to the upper right of the screen, past the helicopter, and out of the lens view. Initially, it appears to be a single light, but later appears as 2 lights, but it's hard to tell if this is a second object, or just part of the original object.

The film appears to be shot from another helicopter from a considerable distance, and the object appears to be moving too fast to be a bird, and since it is partially obscured by smoke as it emerges, it seems too far away to be a bug or dust.

I do not have access to the footage, but maybe the producers at the Ed Show can steer you in the right direction. This footage appeared on the last 2 minutes of the June 29th edition of MSNBC's 'Ed Show'.
