Three big fire trucks have brought out ladders and are spraying water on a burning building from above. On the ground, firefighters and several fire trucks work to put out the flames.

That’s when Harry C. Arnold launches his drone and flies towards the fire, filming the big cloud of grey smoke rising from the building.

Two firefighters were hurt in this May 30, 2013 Detroit fire. Arnold thinks that the video he made of the fire []embedded below] shows how important it can be to have an eye in the sky.

Drones over Detroit

“In a fire situation they can’t see where they’re aiming their hoses,” said Arnold.

Harry has taken his drone to a number of big fires. He hopes to prove its value as an eye in the sky for firefighters and maybe show them where the trouble is before, unsuspecting, they walk right into it.
