COCONINO COUNTY, Ariz. — Governor Doug Ducey is warning people to keep their drones on the ground near wildfires.

This comes after five air units were grounded during a fire in the Coconino National Forest over the weekend.

All because a small drone took in the area.

The governor says flying drones is irresponsible, dangerous and illegal.
