Photo Gallery: The Yarnell Hill Fire

If a picture says a thousand words, these stunning photos of the Yarnell Hill Fire in central Arizona speak volumes about the bravery of the firefighters who risked their lives to protect the communities in the fire's path. These photos – some of them taken by members of the Hotshot crew that perished on June 30 – give us a sense of the enormity of the challenge that firefighters faced in battling a raging, wind-driven wildfire on rugged, mountainous terrain.

All photos are from the accident-investigation reports commissioned by the Arizona State Forestry Division and Arizona OSHA.
