On Saturday, an unidentified UAV was illegally exploited in the close vicinity of the Red Salmon Fire that erupted in California. The drone’s appearance has significantly slowed down the fire-fighting operation. Following the incident, staff at Shasta Trinity Forest, located in northern California, created a special information sign “It’s Not Worth The View.”

While unmanned aerial vehicles are being used in firefighting operations, there has been an increase in the number of lawbreakers who deploy UAVs to illegally obtain videos or images from rescue operations.
