Over the skies of Utica recently, 3 fireballs were seen falling to the ground. What were they?

This event was submitted to MUFON as a possible UFO sighting on August 20th around 10:30PM:

I'm not sure if these were ufo crafts or fireballs. At first they were all together then split into 3 & all sizes were the same.

There is video that you can watch by clicking here.

What was this? Technically speaking, it was a UFO as a "Unidentified Flying Object," but was it aliens? More than likely not.
