Slow moving bright light shoots pyrotechnic toward ground over rural Perris, Gavilan Hills.

I saw an unusual light in the sky Mon. 8/22/2016, between 0225 and 0305 hrs., moving from the SW. It was reasonably bright and not moving fast like an airplane, I suspect it was a drone. As it got closer it released or fired a pyrotechnic mortar that went down a 100 or so feet and exploded with a very loud boom, this was an airburst apprx. 150 feet above ground with a smoke cloud that drifted north this was at 0245. I continued to watch as it turned east and continued till I lost site of it at 0305. I reported to local fire dept as this could have started a brush fire had it made it to the ground. Their response was no response.
