She joins us live in studio.

2 the cattle industry has used bovine in-vitro fertilization for years, but now a lab just started up right here in the magic valley.

2 9:50 we culture those embryos for about a week and help them grow and get them to the stage that they need to be so that they'll survive when we put them into a donor animal.

2 2 fire authorities said thursday morning an unauthorized drone put firefighters in danger and kept them from doing their job.

2 they say the drone disrupted air support for firefighters on the ground.

2 dry conditions and strong winds have contributed to the stubborn nature of the fire that started over the weekend.

2 the battallion chief tells reporters, the intrusion set them back.

2 so what happened is we had to go shut down all of the aircrafts, they had to leave the area go land and could not help the firefighters from keeping the fire from impacting those structures.

2 but what that did for our fighters is put them in an unsafe position where they may have to go in an area that is unsafe for them instead of using the helicopters so i just highly recommend that the public keep those drones out of the fire area.
