Today is a somber 3rd anniversary of the deaths of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots firefighters in the Yarnell Hill Fire. That was a sad a tragic day for our community.
The Daily Courier has an article recounting the event here.
I just got an email from a friend, telling me that a couple we know (Steve and Debi K.) had lost their home in the Yarnell Hill fire. They got out OK, but one of their 3 dogs did not survive the evacuation. They had an older home that Debi’s parents bought in the 1960’s, which was uninsured due to its age. (Hmm … our 1940’s vintage farm house is full insured).
Our hearts go out to them at this difficult time.
