Civilian Drone Grounds Firefighting Plane
This one burns. After a wildfire leapt onto the 15 freeway, San Bernardino firefighters attempted to send rescue planes and helicopters to the scene to help put out at least 20 vehicles and one boat that had been engulfed in the 2,000 acre blaze. However, the “mass casualty incident” has been inflamed by a civilian drone flying near the scene, forcing authorities to down a DC-10 jumbo jet tanker carrying 10,800 gallons of flame retardant. At least 70-80 vehicles were abandoned on the freeway thousands of residents take every Friday as a fast route to Las Vegas.
