Glowing orange object (like a burning plane) disappears/fades away, doesn't fall to earth

Saw a red blinking light at a distance, about 20-40 degrees up from the horizon. However it began to glow orange. It looked like it was nearly heading my direction (it was to my northeast and miles away), and I saw at least three glowing objects drop from the main object. It distinctly seemed like possibly a burning plane.

But then, after about three objects fell away (They fell straight down which made it seem like the "parent object" was heading my direction) the glow faded away in about 3 second. I was on the phone when I first saw it turn an orange color, tried to get it onto video but couldn't find it on my screen (too many street lights). It only lasted maybe 1-2 minutes.
