19 firefighters die in Arizona wildfire
Matt Pearce and Cindy CarcamoFLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Nineteen firefighters died battling a fast-moving wildfire in Arizona, a Yavapai County Sheriff’s official told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday night.
The toll marks the worst firefighter loss of life since 1933, when a blaze in L.A.'s Griffith Park killed at least 25.
The firefighters were battling the Yarnell Hill Fire north of Phoenix, which had consumed about 2,000 acres and was not contained, officials said. The blaze had claimed many buildings in the small Arizona town of Yarnell, Tony Palermo, assistant public information officer for the firefighting effort, told The Times.
