Firefighters battling blaze shoot water at annoying drone (VIDEO)

06/11/15 10:14 AM | by

While attempting to extinguish a fire in Montgomery, New York, firefighters apparently became increasingly annoyed at John Thompson’s mini drone recording the incident.

Gradually inching in closer and closer, after more than 10 minutes of the miniature aircraft hovering overhead, firefighters finally had enough, and just after the 12:00 mark you can see where the drone is sprayed by a firefighter on the second-floor balcony of the home that’s on fire.

The drone then quickly backed up and flew away home.

Now Thompson, who said in a Facebook post that the camera on the $2,200 drone failed to work properly again after being sprayed, accused the firefighters of misconduct.
