18 firefighters die in AZ wildfire

Brutal.

Quote:
PRESCOTT - The Prescott Fire Department lost nearly its entire crew today - the Granite Mountain Hotshots - with 18 firefighters dying and one surviving.

Prescott Fire spokesman Wade Ward told The Daily Courier the crew was battling the Yarnell fire, which has resulted in evacuations as it has grown to an estimated 1,300 acres in size.

A report of eight injured firefighters earlier in the evening was unconfirmed.

Ward said the extent of the survivor's injuries were not known at this time. He also declined to release firefighters' identities.

Further information was unavailable.

Volunteers with the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter opened a shelter on the Prescott campus of Yavapai College Sunday for displaced residents. Expecting large numbers, Red Cross Chapter Communications Officer Trudy Thompson-Rice said plans are already under way to open a second shelter closer to Yarnell.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office Community Relations Specialist Anthony J. Palermo said structures were burning as of Sunday night, but could not confirm how many structures were burned.

Heartbreaking. I'm watching the live news feed from Channel 12 (I assume from Phoenix) right now.

And holy shit, the temperature there right now is 109.

I assume you are talking about Phoenix, because other cities not as large here definitely get a bit cooler. Phoenix does not in the summer.

The concrete here just absorbs everything and radiates it all night.

There are a few weeks in the summer where if it stays consistently hot for so many days on end, that the lowest night temp we will see will be like 90-95. We had three consecutive days last year where the temp didn't get below 100 degrees even at night!

Didn't know that - sounds hellish. I've been out there before, but just once and it was in March.

Yea it is pretty unreal and is almost the complete opposite of all my years living in Montana.

But we like it. And it really isn't as bad as you think. I would take it over the humidity of the Midwest any day. I can't do that at all.

You just know that you have about 3 months of hot as hell heat. But 70-80 degree Thanksgivings/Christmases more than make up for it! Plus my commute is never messed up because of the weather. lol

God, that's just ****ing terrible. I just read they were deploying their emergency tent/shelters when something happened to kill them all.

How tragic. They're saying that the Yarnell fire appears to have been started by lightning. It would be doubly tragic (if that's possible) if it weren't of natural cause.
