Bright fireball in the sky that would drop other fireballs 2-3 times and then it disappeared.

Two of us were sitting out on the deck and noticed a bright fireball in the sky that would intensify in light until something dropped from it that was on fire all the way to the ground. It did that 2-3 more times and when it went out, it looked like a large white balloon and then it went away. Thought it was a basket of a hot air balloon that was on fire or a goodyear blimp that had been in the area videoing baseball games earlier in the day.
