Entire Fire Crew Perishes In Fire
Please pray for the families of these brave heroes. They risked their lives to save others and to save property:
The Prescott Fire Department lost nearly its entire crew today - the Granite Mountain Hotshots - with 18 firefighters dying and one surviving. A Prescott Fire spokesman told The Daily Courier the crew was battling the Yarnell fire, which has resulted in evacuations as it has grown to an estimated 1,300 acres in size.
UPDATE (Thanks, Mo): All 19 have died. It's a terrible tragedy in itself. But to happen to one community is just devastating.

Those of you who live in the east don't understand how dry it is there. In that area the humidity has been so low for the last several days that it couldn't be measured. The air temperature has been over a hundred during the day.
