Really sad to hear this. A reminder that we are ants in the face of nature. RIP

May those 19 heroes rest in peace ! May they be honored for just "doing what they do". Peace and prayers to the families.

I hope their is an investigation into this horrible incident! 19?? Way too many to all die like this.

When I read this story, I felt like I'd just been punched in the gut. I'm from Arizona, lived in Phoenix, and Lakeside, in the White Mountains, also spent quite a bit of time in Prescott with relatives. I didn't know any of these guys personally, though I've met 2 of them. They are all heroes. Firefighting is a tough job, but the wildland hotshot crews are a step beyond, facing extreme danger to save lives, and homes in horrible conditions. Huge tragedy, not only to their families, but to their communities and friends. They will be missed.
