    Cool ... could you provide more detail though what kind of technology you would use: Motors, flight controller, cameras and especially "fire recognition software" :)

    Flight controller based in gps coordinates and an inderactive protocol that will allows the drones to communicate among themselves, in corporation with infrared and sonar sensors will navigate the drones safely to a standard route. High definision cameras in corporation with temperature and smoke sensors can dedect a starting fire by a software that will do an image analysis pixel by pixel finding all the dark pixels that can signify smoke and a possible fire.
