Another drone stopped air operations at Goodwin Fire

For a second time, a drone has halted air operations to combat the Goodwin wildfire.

Another day, another drone...

According to Steve Berube, a spokesperson for the Prescott National Forest, a drone spotted Tuesday just after 10 a.m. halted air operations for the Goodwin Fire.

A firefighting helicopter, Berube said, was forced to land.

This marks the second time air operations were stopped as a result of a drone. Gene Alan Carpenter, from Prescott Valley, was previously arrested for flying a drone near the Goodwin Fire.

The Goodwin fire has burned over 28,000 acres and was 91 percent contained as of Tuesday morning.
