IDAHO  --  While firefighters explore how drones could be used in their fight against wildfires, some in Idaho have said that unmanned aircraft could pose a threat.  

So far this year, at least three unexpected drones have flown in or close to restricted airspace.

Fire managers said it could force them to call off retardant bombers or cause them to suspend firefighting efforts until the drone leaves.

Drones, being flown for personal use, have been spotted over fires in Washington, Oregon, and Northern California.
