Drone bursts into flames on quiet Hamptons street


A drone crashed and exploded into flames this week on a quiet Hamptons street.

The flying object slammed into the top of the Sag Harbor Variety Store in Sag Harbor shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday, officials said.

Flaming wreckage fell onto the street before a man at a nearby hardware store rushed out to douse it with a fire extinguisher.

A passing 11-year-old boy was clipped by the falling drone's propeller but wasn't seriously hurt.
