Hi Daniel,

Your description sounds like a "Thai Balloon": a small hot-air balloon 
consisting of a bag with a burner that is a popular gimmick nowadays at garden 
parties etcetera. As soon as the weather gets better, these appear and result in 
a spade of "fireball" sightings over the past years. I have seen them several 
times during my observations and last year captured one on photograph: 
  (image near end of post).
