Mystery Drone Suspends Silver Dollar Fire Fighting from Air

Fighting the Silver Dollar Fire on and near the Hanford site from the air was abruptly halted after a drone was spotted near the fire line.

Three helicopters involved in fighting the fire were immediately grounded because unauthorized drones in any airspace are dangerous.

Fire crews have a zero-tolerance policy on drone flying around a fire perimeter and they will always ground their crews even if it means the fire continues to grow and spread.

At this writing, the fire is still over 20,000 acres and about 65-percent contained.
