    House Fire Aerial Drone Video - Controlled Burn Drill by the Fire Department in Thomaston CT


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Petr Hejl is a hobbyist drone photographer. He captured footage of house fire drill conducted by the fire department in Thomaston, Connecticut, from above. “One thing that did struck me was how shockingly fast has the fire spread,” Hejl said. For this video, shot on Nov. 16, Hejl mounted a GoPro camera to a RC hexacopter. He said he’s also working with state emergency coordinators to develop a “multi-rotor aircraft” for their use.
