PHOENIX — The United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association and Prescott Fire Fighter’s Charities announced Monday that a new fund has been established to benefit the families of a fallen Prescott fire crew.

Donations are being accepted at all Chase Bank locations. The account number is 987218757. Donors who have questions are asked to contact the UPFFA office at 602-277-1500.

A release from the two groups said 100 percent of the donations will go to the families of the Prescott-based fire crew who were killed while fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire on Sunday.

The fire was sparked Friday by a lightning strike. It has already burned over 8,300 acres and officials estimated that 200 homes were lost.
