Drone generic image

Fire managers working on the Cedar Creek Fire have a message for people hoping to get a birds-eye view of the blaze.

Don’t fly your drone over it.

A temporary flight restriction has been put into place over the fire. 

“Drones can suspend fire aviation decreasing the effectiveness of wildfire suppression operations allowing wildfires to grow larger.”
