AP: Deaths of Yarnell hotshots top Arizona story of 2013

On a sweltering day in late June, lightning set off a wildfire near the town of
Yarnell. It wasn’t a huge fire, but powerful, shifting winds soon turned it into
a deadly inferno for a team of Prescott firefighters. The story of the loss of
19 firefighters was the biggest in Arizona in 2013, but it had lots of
competition in a year that produced a scandal over child welfare, a salacious
murder trial in Phoenix and more fights over the immigration tactics of Sheriff
Joe Arpaio.
