PHOENIX -- Almost three months since the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots were killed, the investigation into the tragedy has been completed.

The Arizona State Forestry Division has announced that the serious accident investigation report of the Yarnell Hill Fire fatalities has been completed. No details have been released.

The official report will be released on Saturday at 10 a.m. during a press conference at Prescott High School.

The Hotshots died in a canyon in Yarnell after being overtaken by fire on June 30. It was the largest loss of firefighters in a wildfire in 80 years in the United States.
