Drones Help Firefighters Battle Large Bronx Blaze Caused by E-Bike

Firefighters with the New York Fire Department (FDNY) used drones to help fight a large fire that broke out in the Bronx on Sunday, March 5.

The drones gave firefighters “an overview of the scene that is otherwise not visible from the street level,” said the FDNY.

The fire, which was caused by a lithium-ion battery on a scooter, injured at least seven people, according to the FDNY. Credit: FDNY via Storyful
