Fire managers on the Goodwin Fire had to deal with an increasing problem in firefighting Wednesday and it wasn’t winds. Late yesterday afternoon, someone flew a drone over the fire, which caused all air activity to cease until the area could be cleared. Fire officials across the state have tried to get the word out that flying drones over active fires not only hampers fire attack from the air, but it’s also a federal crime. Yesterday’s incident cost air attack about a half-hour of crucial fire protection for communities. If you are a drone operator, you are asked to stay away from the Goodwin Fire and any other wildfire that may begin in the future.
