NM governor attends firefighter memorial

SANTA FE, N.M. -- New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez joined thousands of mourners, including Vice President Joe Biden, at a memorial service in Arizona for 19 firefighters killed in a wildfire a week ago.

Martinez traveled to Arizona on Tuesday for the memorial in Prescott and then returned to New Mexico.

The firefighters were members of the Prescott-based Granite Mountain Hotshots, who recently helped fight the Thompson Ridge wildfire in northern New Mexico that charred more than 37 square miles.

The firefighters were killed when flames overtook them as they fought a wildfire near Yarnell, Ariz.
