FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Law enforcement in Flagstaff is taking to the skies to
try to prevent wildfires.
A plane flown by a Coconino County sheriff’s deputy accompanied by a Flagstaff
police officer is flying around the area to try to spot transient camps and
illegal campfires in the city and in nearby forested areas.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported that law enforcement
personnel on the ground are notified so they can go to the site and see if there
is any violation requiring action.
