Prudent move, considering that wildfires usually don't avoid airports. I doubt there are firetrucks standing by, just to make sure Big Joe doesn't set the whole place on fire with his Bratwurst. U.S. Airtankers and fire fighters now have to dodge moron- operated drones and UAV's once a smoke-puff appears. I guess if people can't be trusted to exercise common sense and treat natural resources responsibly, they loose them over time, or as in this case, temporarily.
