U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake issued a statement Saturday after the Arizona Forestry Division released an official report on its investigation into the Yarnell Hill Fire that killed 19 firefighters in late June.

"We hope that the information contained in this report will lead to reforms that can help prevent tragedies like this from occurring in the future. We owe it to the honorable 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who were lost while protecting others, and to all who risk their lives fighting wildfires to learn from this event and implement changes that will protect first responders going forward. Our country remains ever grateful for their sacrifice," the senators said.
