A fire raging across 1,300 acres in Yarnell, Arizona claimed the lives of nearly the entire Prescott Fire Department's crew on Sunday, as 19 firefighters were killed, according to an Arizona forestry official who spoke to the Associated Press. The extent of the one survivor's injuries are unknown. About 600 residents from 50 homes have been evacuated because of the fire, which is believed to have been caused by a lightning strike on Saturday night.
