If your motto is, “Have drone, will fly over wildfires,” you could find yourself in some hot water. Earlier this month, we reported how private drones were delaying firefighting efforts in California’s San Bernardino County. Now, the heads of those drone pilots could be on the proverbial chopping block.
Obviously, people weren’t happy. Officials, who credit the drones with grounding firefighting aircraft and allowing the fires to spread, are offering a $75,000 reward for information leading to the pilots of the drones. But, it doesn’t stop there.
