Wednesday marks eight years since 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots were killed battling the Yarnell Hill Fire. The Town of Yarnell will pay tribute to the fallen firefighters at Yarnell Memorial Park at 4 p.m. The event will feature speakers and ringing of bells and a reading of the names of the 19 heroes. Governor Doug Ducey has ordered that flags fly at half-staff Wednesday. He says “Arizona lost 19 heroic firefighters eight years ago to one of the most devastating wildfires in state history. These brave men gave their all in defense of our communities, and their service remains among the greatest ever known to our state. We will never forget their sacrifice.” The United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution introduced by Senator Kelly and Senator Sinema honoring the 19 firefighters. The resolution was presented Tuesday in front of firefighters, family members, and community members at the re-opening of the Eric Marsh Foundation in Prescott. The bells at the Yavapai County Courthouse in downtown Prescott will be rung 19 times starting at 4:42 p.m. Wednesday.
