Watch Memorial Service for Arizona Hotshots

Vice President Joe Biden and Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer are set to speak Tuesday at the memorial service for 19 firefighters who perished battling a wildfire.

Several local Arizona television stations will be providing live coverage service expected to attract more than 30,000 people including firefighters from around the world.

Coverage is slated to begin at 10 a.m. PT or 1 p.m. EDT on ABC15, MyFoxPhoenix and azcentral.

The stations will provide a special segment before the service starts at 11 a.m.

All but one member of the elite Granite Mountain Hotshots died when a raging fire changed directions and overran them. Some managed to deploy their portable shelters.
