Memorial service in Prescott set for firefighters
PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- A memorial service will be held in Prescott for the 19 firefighters killed in the Yarnell wildfire.
Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar said the service is scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
The Republican congressman already was in Prescott for a scheduled field hearing on IRS abuse and EPA overreach that was supposed to be held at Embry-Riddle.
Gosar said that event has been cancelled.
He said the memorial service is open to the public and donations will be collected for the fire victims.
