We were traveling S on 540 & saw 6 big bright orange fire balls moving & leaving steaks of smoke in the sky.

We were traveling south on 540 and saw 6 bright orange fire balls that appeared to be floating in a southern bound direction. We saw them for about 10-15 minutes before they disappeared. They were visible from the highway from Westfork to south of Alma. Not sure if they burned out or we just lost sight of them in the horizon. A trail of smoke was visible behind each light and they were not lined up perfectly or in any kind of pattern. They were grouped together and traveling at mostly similar speeds.
