Prayers for the firefighters, their families and the people of Yarnell Hill.

Here's hoping the confirmation is a mistake, but there was a report earlier of twenty missing firefighters, with only one being found.

Someone commented on the article and said report is wrong. Firefighters are hurt but not dead. Pray they are correct and article is wrong.

Report confirmed by the Prescott Courier which puts the death toll at 18 firefighters with one survivor:

The Prescott Fire Department lost nearly its entire crew today - the Granite Mountain Hotshots - with 18 firefighters dying and one surviving.

Prescott Fire spokesman Wade Ward told The Daily Courier the crew was battling the Yarnell fire, which has resulted in evacuations as it has grown to an estimated 1,300 acres in size.

Terrible. I don’t think I’ve heard of that many dying at once.

Good news - at least according to this update... it says 22 firemen injured with 8 expected to be hospitalized. Praise the Lord!

What an unfortunate occurrence. My prayers go out to the departed souls and the loved ones they left behind.

Brother when you weep for me Remember that it was meant to be

Lay me down and when you leave Remember I'll be at your sleeve

In every dark and choking hall I'll be there as you slowly crawl

On every roof in driving snow I'll hold your coat and you will know

In cellars hot with searing heat At windows where a gate you meet

In closets where young children hide You know I'll be there at your side

The house from which I now respond Is overstaffed with hero's gone

Men who answered one last bell Did the job and did it well

As firemen we understand That death's a card dealt in our hands

A card we hope we never play But one we hold there anyway

That card is something we ignore As we crawl across a weakened floor

For we know that we're the only prayer For anyone that might be there

So remember as you wipe your tears The joy I know throughout the years

As I did the job I loved to do I pray that thought will see you through
