Statement form AG Horne Re: Yarnell Hill Fire Tragedy

STATEMENT FROM ATTORNEY GENERAL TOM HORNE:

"I was deeply saddened this evening to hear of the untimely passing of 19 wild-land firefighters in the Yarnell Hill Fire. The men and women who brave their lives daily to keep our families and homes safe should be honored for their bravery and sacrifices each and every day. Our Office sends heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the families and comrades of the fallen, and I join all of Arizona in keeping the injured in our prayers for a speedy recovery.

People who would like to help the injured or displaced can contact the Red Cross for volunteer opportunities, shelter contact info., and to make a donation at www.redcross.org.

As we search for ways to help the families of the fallen, I urge people to donate to the 100 Club of Arizona's Survivor Fund in memory of the Granite Mountain hotshots at http://www.100club.org/web/100Club."
