Below is a list of links to stories about the AZ fire fighters who lost their lives.

“With no way out, the Prescott-based crew did what they were trained to do: They unfurled their foil-lined, heat-resistant tarps and rushed to cover themselves. But that last, desperate line of defense couldn’t save them.”

“The deaths of the Granite Mountain Hotshots marked the nation’s biggest loss of firefighters in a wildfire in 80 years. Only one member of the 20-person crew survived, and that was because he was moving the unit’s truck at the time.”  Huffington Post

 

It’s a Disaster blog did an outside job on article, photos and video on the fallen heros.

Fire Critic.com did a great write up of biographies on the firefighters.  It is hard to believe how young most of them were.
