Fundraiser Raises Money For Yarnell Fire Victims


Wives, fiancées and others close to some of the firefighters who perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire are trying to help the community their loved ones died trying to protect.
 
KPHOTV reports that a fundraising event held Sunday in Prescott raised $18,000 for Yarnell. The community lost more than 100 homes. Those participating in the benefit to raise money to rebuild homes and restore  infrastructure included Leah Fine. She was engaged to Grant McKee, one of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died June 30th. Fine says Yarnell is no longer just a dot on the map or a place that people drive through on their way to California. She says it is now a reminder of the men who lost their lives.
