YARNELL HILL FIRE CONTAINED
The Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona has been contained, U.S. Forest Service officials said Wednesday night.
The blaze killed 19 members of the elite Granite Mountain Hot Shot Crew from Prescott.
The fire burned about 13 square miles. It started late last month in the mountains north of Phoenix.
The firefighters, including five from California, were killed June 30 when the out-of-control blaze overran then as they tried to protect the town of Yarnell.
The first funerals for the fallen firefighters began Wednesday, a day after thousands attended a memorial service for the men.
