    It's good that you made the news but most drone flights near fires end up being news in a different way. I don't know if they run aerial fire suppression there, but generally speaking, flying near any fire without full and explicit permission from the emergency responders is a terrible idea.

    Hi Ian, as I mentioned I was first on scene so no emergency services present, as soon as I saw flashing lights I immediately brought it to home

    I was approached via YouTube and Facebook, I offered it for free, wasn't something I'd charge
