Firefighters Killed Facing the Firestorm-9

In this Tuesday, July 2, 2013 photo, a woman hugs a former member of the Granite Mountain Hotshot Crew before a candlelight vigil for the 19 crew members lost, in Prescott, Ariz. In American culture, the firefighter is almost a mythic being. Immortalized in movies such as "Backdraft" and "Ladder 49," they do things that most people could never conceive of doing. They are, as we so often see, the first ones in to a disaster and the last ones out. It is no different in the wildland firefighting community, where men and women armed with little more than axes, shovels and chain saws face mountainsides engulfed in flames and hope to bring that force of nature to heel.
