Strange flash in the sky during meteor shower.

Was watching the Perseids meteor shower around 5am EDT looking to the ENE about 45 Deg up from the horizon seen a flash and sparks. Unknown if the Meteor hit something or blew up? No meteor streak just before a strong white flash and a few white/green sparks in one spot in the sky.
