Currently,Southern California Gas Co.'s Porter Ranch facility has the record for worst methane leak in US history, surely.

Consider this Xist:

techxplore.com:Engineering students use sound waves to put out fires

Combine this with variable pitch props for super-low frequencies:

diytube.com:Rotary Subwoofer? Eminent Technology TRW-17

So you'd have a quadcopter the uses fluctuating blades instead of the subwoofer in the proof of concept. With a fleet of these you could do controlled burns.
