Yarnell Hill Fire Documentary

On June 30, 2013, 19 firefighters from the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew were fighting a wildfire near Yarnell, Arizona when they became overrun by the fire and lost their lives. This Yarnell Fire documentary explores how the fire began, why it spread in the unpredictable way that it did, and what made the hotshots crew leave the safety of the black area (already burned area) they had been in. Several widows of the men speak, in addition to the lone survivor of the Yarnell Hill Fire tragedy, Brendan McDonough.
