YARNELL Breaking News: Deadly Arizona Wildfire Balloons to 13 Square Miles

by Wochit 0:55 mins

A wildfire that killed nearly 20 members of an elite fire crew trying to help protect homes in a small central Arizona town has quadrupled in size, to 13 square miles. Nineteen members of an elite fire crew were killed in the deadliest wildfire in the U.S. in the last 30 years. Gusty, hot winds blew an Arizona blaze out of control Sunday in a forest northwest of Phoenix, overtaking and killing the firefighters. The "hotshot" firefighters deployed their emergency tent-like fire shelters when they were caught near the town of Yarnell, but the wildfire was too intense. Fire crews in Arizona are trying to control a blaze that killed 19 elite firefighters and destroyed 200 homes.
