When hobbyist drones dive into a wildfire, planes and helicopters tasked with dumping water and fire suppressing chemicals on the blazes can’t fly. This famously came to a head in 2015 when five drones flew over California’s North Fire as it barreled across a Los Angeles freeway. The helicopter that was supposed to drop water over the conflagration was grounded for more than twenty minutes. The mix of hazy, smokey conditions made the likelihood of an in-air collision too great and potentially devastating. And it's not only dangerous, but also illegal. Last month a 54-year old Arizona man was arrested under suspicion of flying a drone over Arizona's Goodwin fire. A helicopter was in the air at the time, and it had to be grounded for two hours. The fire took two weeks to be fully contained during which more than 28,000 acres, an area roughly the size of Florida's Walt Disney World, burned. Wild land firefighters don’t need a tough job made any tougher.
