PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Additional claims are being filed against the state,
Yavapai County and the city of Prescott in connection with the deadly Yarnell
Hill fire last summer.
The Daily Courier reported that the additional claims
were filed Monday on behalf of owners of six properties in Yarnell, the rural
community where more than 100 homes were destroyed.
The claims are precursors to possible lawsuits and they seek a total of more
than $33 million from the entities.
The owners of seven other properties and the mother of a firefighter who died
also have filed claims.
