Drone slows firefighters on blaze near Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Firefighters working to put out a fire near Flagstaff's Fort Tuthill County Park had to call off their operation for a short time Tuesday because of a drone flying overhead.

They were able to get the 2-1/2-acre fire under control, but their work was delayed by the drone.

Fire officials with the Coconino National Forest want to remind people that if drones are flying in the area, forest officials can't do their job from the air.
