    Default Prescott FD: 18 firefighters killed in Yarnell wildfire

    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    I said that to my wife when I read this story. It has been a horrible year so far. Let's hope for better second half of the year.

    Holy c**p just doesn't say enough.

    Our thoughts to all affected by this disaster.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    Rest Easy Brothers.

    A bad year for the fire service continues to get worse, and the year isn't even close to over.

    May the Lord's face shine upon you, my friends.

    Prayers and condolences to them and their families, friends, and fellow firefighters.

    Here's the link to the local paper...lots of info on memorials and where to send donations.
