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.
