Thousands of people and the picture perfect moments they want to capture for the eclipse are a concern for fire crews.
It's the unauthorized drones the Oregon Department of Forestry is worried about.
Less than three weeks ago ODF had a drone interference while fighting a fire, which forced them to land their helicopter, costing the agency $15,000.
They fear with the thousands looking for the perfect photo op, safety is at risk.
"Aircraft are so finely balanced that something as small as a drone can get in there damage those small fine parts and bring a helicopter down, bring an air tanker down, the list goes on. Therefore, if that comes down that means we're losing our pilot, that also means the people bellow - firefighters and public alike are at danger,” said Melissa Cano, the ODF public information officer.
