While there has been no drone activity over the fire, drones interfere with firefighting efforts. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) that is in effect and any private aircraft or drone that violates the TFR could face serious criminal charges. Even without a TFR, anyone who hampers firefighting efforts could face criminal charges as well. For more information on drones the public can visit the FAA's website. "If you fly, we can't!" For additional information, Santa Barbara County residents can call 211, contact the Fire Information Line at 805-895-0841, or continue to revisit this page for updates.
