Authorities said a drone temporarily halted air tankers that were fighting a wildfire on the edge of the San Bernardino National Forest.
A U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman said the fire broke out in a canyon north of Yucaipa Sunday afternoon, prompting the evacuation of four homes.
She said firefighters at a nearby air tanker base responded swiftly and stopped the fire's forward spread at about 35 acres.
