Phones have been busy at Hire UAV Pros in Denver. "We had probably somewhere in the order of 300 to 400 requests for the 4th of July," Graham Hill, the business' owner, said. His company does synchronized drone light shows like the ones you might see at the Super Bowl. Now, towns in fire-prone areas are reaching out to inquire about a replacement for traditional fireworks. "Post Marshall Fire, it's been much more about replacing the entertainment, not just this year but looking for an alternative for the foreseeable future," Hill said. "We're already working on doing four shows in four different locations over 4th of July weekend." There is some precedent for the worry. Last year's Christmas show put on by the Douglas County commissioners caused spot fires at every location where those fireworks were launched.
