Nineteen elite firefighters died yesterday while battling a fast-moving wildfire in Yarnell, northwest of Phoenix, Ariz.
The firefighters belonged to the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew in Prescott, Ariz.
One member of the 20-person crew survived and has been hospitalized.
“We’re devastated. We just lost 19 of the finest people you’ll ever meet,” said Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo.
The fire was started by lightning on Friday.
