This minute-long video shows the procession for 19 firefighters who died in the line of duty fighting the Yarnell Fire.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office transported each of the 19 bodies back to Phoenix in white vans.

The video was taken in front of a car dealership on 51st Avenue in Glendale and posted onto its Facebook page.

Many have already offered their condolences including President Barack Obama who referred to the 19 fallen firefighters as heroes. Arizona Sen. John McCain even offered to end an overseas tour to help those in Prescott.

The fire burning near Prescott, Ariz., has burned more than 8,300 acres and officials estimated that 200 homes were destroyed. More than 400 personnel were fighting the fire on Monday.
