19 Firefighters Killed in Az. Wildfire

'Heroes': 19 elite firefighters killed battling Arizona blaze - U.S. News

Unimaginable what their families are going through right now. A whole unit wiped out in the blink of an eye.

R.I.P. to some brave men.

I am amazed every year at these damn wildfires. For a nation who put a man on the moon in a matter of years you'd think we could advance our technology to make fighting these things a little easier. What a damn tragedy.

It is truly a gift to live your work life doing what you......love. Most people never have that experience.
RIP Firefighters...you lived on the edge and you died on it.....

Re: 19 Firefighters Killed in Az. Wildfire

My hats go off to guys like these and my heart goes out the families of those lost. I've seen some specials on fires like this and it's frightening to say the least at how quick mother nature can turn on you. These guys put it on the line each and every time they go out and without a doubt are under-appreciated and underpaid.

This...Its really amazing what Mother Nature can still do.

I hate stories like this. Firefighters, Cops, First responders, military.... just shows you how little some of us do in comparison each day. Can't say enough about them, and this is just so so sad.

These guys went into Arizona and fought the fires there. Then they died in it.

I wouldn't say people aren't interested... there's just not much to discuss other than saying it's a tragedy and it sucks.

AZ Cardinals step up

Nice gesture, let's see the NFL, or better yet Goodell, match it. How about it, Rog?

Re: 19 Firefighters Killed in Az. Wildfire

Last night on the news they showed a few of the families and one firefighter left behind 4 children. That just tore through me to no end and I had to change the channel.

Brave men died trying to save others. R.I.P.
