A wall of fire raged through Yarnell, Arizona over the weekend, turning the countryside into a blazing inferno that claimed the lives of at least 19 firefighters. The tragedy is marked as the state’s deadliest ever wildfire and left the Yarnell community devastated. The thoughts of the fallen Hotshots fire crew are with many of those on Twitter.
Hearing that 19 firefighters were killed in Arizona today fighting the #yarnellfire. Absolutely devastating news.
