In a press release, the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said the 54-year-old Prescott Valley native had endangered 14 aircraft and fire crews "with a substantial risk of imminent death or physical injury by flying an unmanned drone aircraft in the closed airspace above an active fire area".

The reports of a man flying a drone in the fire area continued throughout the week.

The baby animals were found too close to the spreading blaze in the dense Prescott National Forest and around Prescott, a mountain city about 100 miles (160.9 kilometers) north of Phoenix.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office announced more evacuations would be lifted as the Goodwin Fire remains at 75 percent contained as of Monday morning.

Federal Aviation Administration guidelines urge drone hobbyists to fly no higher than 400 feet, stay clear of stadiums and people, and avoid flying within five miles of airports. Deputies developed leads identifying Carpenter, based in part, on prior contacts.

A witness reportedly saw Carpenter flying the drone near a white van late last month, and authorities later tracked him down after he posted the photos he took from the drone to his website. The airspace was cleared immediately, and 14 aircraft were reportedly grounded for almost an hour, hindering the efforts of the firefighters on the ground.

Two little ones without homes were facing danger from the Goodwin Fire, until Flagstaff Hotshots were able to save them, according to the United States Forest Service in Prescott.

Carpenter was arrested Friday afternoon after an off-duty deputy spotted his van on Willow Creek Road in Prescott.
