Fire around a fuselage looking object flying in the sky.

A UFO flew over head that resembled the fuselage of an aircraft with fire on both sides if it. My Dad actually thought it might be a plane on fire at first and called 911 in Genesee County to report it. We were told by the dispatcher that we perhaps saw Meteors from the Pegasis Meteor showers that were going on. We have been watching them and know the duration of a meteor or shooting star is usually seconds. We actually saw it a second time but further away and lower on the horizon. The direction of travel was NNE from the Big Dipper towards Cassiopia however it was actually below Cassiopia constellation. When it disappeared it looked like a star however when it was overhead, two of the persons smelled a burning smell in the air. The other two did not.The 911 Center did call us back and stated that Bishop International Airport did not have any reports of aircraft in trouble.
