Drone incursion grounds aircraft on Williams Fork Fire

Williams Fork Fire Wildfire
News – 9/15/2020

Fire activity yesterday picked up yesterday as warm temperatures produced smoke within the fire perimeter. Helicopters worked to cool hot spots until a drone incursion grounded them. Fire managers wish to remind the public that a "No Fly Zone" remains in place within a 2-mile radius of the fire. 

Interior pockets of smoke will continue to be visible on warm days until a season-ending weather event occurs, particularly on the south end of the fire, which is holding the most heat.
