Drone footage displays small fires during fireworks show in Hermiston
HERMISTON, Ore. - Multiple fires that sparked in the middle of an elaborate Fourth of July fireworks display in Hermiston can be viewed on drone video.
James Thomas provided the video to Action News. He said he sent his drone up into the night sky just after 10 to get some aerial video of Hermiston during the big Fourth of July fireworks show when suddenly several small fires ignited in the park area down-wind from the show.
Umatilla County firefighters were already staged at the event in case of any fires.
Crews managed to put out these small fires that turned into a larger fire before anyone got hurt or any property was destroyed.
