In the deadliest day for firefighters since 9/11 (and Arizona's worst firefighter tragedy), a elite group of 19 firefighters were killed fighting the Yarnell Hills wildfire, which has spread to more than 8,000 acres across the state. 20 percent of the Prescott, Ariz. Fire Department has been lost. Both Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and President Obama have expressed their sympathies and praised the efforts of the firefighters, and you can join them. Even if you're far away from Arizona, there's still ways to help in this time of crisis and mourning.
