19 Firefighters Are Killed

Battling Arizona Wildfire

 

June 30, 2013

The New York Times

By REUTERS

 

PHOENIX — Nineteen firefighters were killed battling a fast-moving wildfire menacing a small town in central Arizona, the United States Wildland Fire Aviation Service said on Sunday.

The firefighters died fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire, near the small town of Yarnell about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix, the service said in a Facebook post.

“It has been confirmed that 19 Wildland firefighters have lost their lives on the Yarnell Hill fire Arizona,” the post said. “I ask for prayers for the families and friends of these brave men and women.”

The fire has burned about 1,000 acres of chapparal and grass since Friday amid tinder-dry heat wave conditions, leading to scores of evacuations near Yarnell.
