Aerial firefighting services were temporarily halted during the Coldwater fire after a civilian drone was spotted in the area a helicopter was operating.

The Coldwater fire is burning south of Clints Well, Arizona and has currently burned over 6000 acres of forested land in Coconino National Park.

Firefighting efforts from the air were suspended on Saturday for a short time as the drone was spotted inside an active TFR area for the fire that is currently being fought by almost two hundred firefighters and remains only 10% contained.
