NAZtoday’s Tamara Goebbert brings us the story about a crashed drone that caused a 330-acre wildfire. It threatened several structures in Kendrick Park just north of Flagstaff. There were some homes and the chapel of the holy dove that were saved using the classic fire fighting strategy of a burnout.
George Jozens explains that the fire started around 12:35pm on Tuesday afternoon, and a response team was deployed. The fire started in the North and was moved by high-speed winds. Murray Rosengarten and his team were able to contain and put out the fire after it had spread roughly 330 acres.
