Thousands of firefighters from around the nation arrived to attend a memorial service for Prescott's Granite Mountain Hotshots to pay final respects on Tuesday the 9th, at the minor league hockey arena in Prescott Valley, not far from where they died Sunday, June 30. Nineteen members of the crew were overrun by smoke and fire while battling a blaze on a ridge in Yarnell, about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix. (AP)
