Falling object

I was diving NW on a dirt road N of Socorro, when I thought a flash of lighting lit up the hill side. But, it lasted for 3-4 sec.. I could see nothing at the time.

I leaned foward toward the dash and saw a fireball above high clouds. It was lighting up the clouds. It passed through or from behind the clouds. The object was moving from the north toward the west at a steep angle.

As I watched, it broke up in to 3-4 objects, and then all dimmed and went out.
