These young men were the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew from Prescott, AZ. The Hotshots are a specialized team trained to combat extreme wildland blazes.
All 19 of these men lost their lives last night, only 1 member of their team (not pictured) survived. This marks the largest loss of life of firefighters since 9/11.

WDHA would like to take a moment to thank the men and women who risk their lives to protect our own each day.
