YARNELL, Ariz.,- A raging wildfire destroyed 2,000 acres in a small Arizona town Sunday. As the townspeople fled, 20 brave Granite Mountain Firefighters known as “The Hotshots” stayed behind to attempt to control the flames. Suddenly, a quick shift in wind caused the fire to take a different direction, trapping 19 of the 20 firefighters. The fire took these heroes’ lives while they protected others. Those brave firefighters are heroes.
