Drones reportedly spotted near two large B.C. wildfires The Canadian Press
PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – British Columbia wildfire officials are reminding the public that flying drones near fires can be dangerous and costly.
Fire information officer Amanda Reynolds said the BC Wildfire Service received two reports of unmanned aerial vehicles near wildfires on Friday.
Crews saw some people getting ready to launch a drone near the Beatton Airport Road fire, burning 45 kilometres north of Fort St. John, but when they were approached, the people got in their vehicle and drove away, Reynolds said.
