Fireballs over nightsky in Seattle

Over the period of about 15 minutes we watched a succession of about 13 orange fireballs ascend from the direction of West Seattle high into the night sky and then go out. There was no sound. Shortly after the last fireball dissapeared, we witnessed 3 of these balls slowly drift back toward the earth into my neighborhood which is Mount Baker Seattle. Unfortunately, we were not able to see where they finally touched down. As they were coming down they drifted lightly, reminding us of a plastic bag drifting through the wind. Also reminded me of those camping lamps they used to make with the netting that would burn out. Strange, seemed manmade once they came down, but I don't understand how they went up so high so quickly and they were quite large....
