19 firefighters killed in Arizona

Dear lord this is just awful. It happened in my state too. RIP to the those brave guys that risked their lives to help others.

I have such high respect for firefighters. There's no way I could do what they do, I'm too big of a pussy.


Nineteen firefighters - all members of an elite response team - were killed Sunday battling a fast-moving wildfire in Arizona, marking the deadliest single incident for firefighters since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, officials said.
In a statement, President Barack Obama said the "thoughts and prayers" of all Americans would be with the loved ones of the firefighters killed near the town of Yarnell, Ariz., about 85 miles northwest of Phoenix. He described the fallen men as "heroes."
The fire, which investigators believe was sparked by lightning, also destroyed more than 200 buildings in the town, which is home to about 700 people.

Burglary suspects take advantage of Yarnell wildfire evacuation

http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/Story/22...ire-evacuation

PRESCOTT, Ariz. - Yavapai County Sheriff's officials arrested two suspects in connection with a burglary that took place following the evacuation of homes during the Yarnell Hill wildfire.

27-year-old Dakota Slone from Yarnell and 22-year-old Robert Frost, a transient, were arrested for several charges.

Authorities say on July 8, YCSO deputies were dispatched to the 16000 block of West Way regarding a burglary report. The homeowner told deputies that sometime between June 30 and July 8 that suspects entered a bedroom window. Several items were stolen, including firearms, numerous knives, coins and jewelry.

According to the YCSO report, the victim indicated he had seen two suspicious males near his home when the evacuation was just getting underway. He provided a detailed description of both men. During the conversation, the deputy recalled seeing the suspicious men while evacuating a neighborhood. The deputy spoke with them and both claimed to be assisting with the evacuation.

Deputies sent a bulletin to area law enforcement agencies describing the stolen property and on July 10, a Prescott police detective contacted YCSO and advised them about items matching descriptions in the report had been pawned. The pawn shot in Prescott was located and the customer who pawned the items was identified as Frost.
