      Just reported late this evening 18 fire fighters have died fighting a wild fire in Arizona, all I can say is that's terrible and I surely wouldn't want to be the person in charge. I would think someone made a very bad decision.

      I am hearing 19 have died now is this now correct? Just shocking. I heard that they got told to go north and then got told to pull back and when they turned around the fire had jumped across a small road and they ended up being trapped.

      Makes you realise the dangers of what they have to go through.

      It appears 19 is correct, there was obviously some bad decision making going on from the leadership, there is no structure or property worth more than the lives of the people fighting these fires, that's rule number one. This will have a serious effect on the fire fighters who entrust their lives to those that do have authority and give them the instructions, I know it would effect me....
