Fiery object falling, breaks into 2 pieces, each dart toward opposite horizons.

My dad and I were driving down Mines Rd toward the Columbia Bridge on our way to a hunting camp in Mexico. While conversing, a bright fiery object appeared out of nowhere and seemed to be falling. We asked one another, "Are you seeing that?"

After falling for about 7 seconds, it broke into two pieces, darting toward the horizon in opposite directions.

To this day we still talk of this event and have no explanation for what was seen.
