tragedy

I just heard that 18 firefighters were confirmed dead fighting this fire today:

Yarnell Hill Fire, Arizona

The news channels are saying they were members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a Forest Service 20 person fire crew.

This is devastating news to our fire community.

Unfortunately we are used to loss.

Was it worth it? I don't believe any of their families will think so.
