YARNELL, AZ (CBS5) -
Members of the Incident Management Team who responded to the Yarnell Hill Fire that took the lives of 19 firefighters, is thanking the communities for their support.

Please know that as we leave, our thoughts and prayers will remain in Prescott, Yarnell and the many hometowns of our fallen," IMT said.
