Firefighters' family, friends organize Yarnell benefit

PRESCOT, Ariz. -- Wives, fiancees and others close to some of the firefighters who perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire are trying to help the community their loved ones died trying to protect.

Local news reported that a fundraising event held Sunday in Prescott collected $18,000 for Yarnell. The community lost more than 100 homes.

Those participating in the benefit to raise money to rebuild homes and restore infrastructure included Leah Fine. She was engaged to Grant McKee, one of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died June 30.

Fine said Yarnell is no longer just a dot on the map or a place that people drive through on their way to California. She sids it's a reminder of the men who lost their lives.
