The United Way of Yavapai County, Ariz., has set up an
account to benefit the families of the 19 firefighters killed Sunday
in the area's Yarnell Hill Fire.
Those who have lost their homes in the blaze also will benefit from donations to the fund.
Donations to the Yarnell Fire Fund can be made through United Way's website, www.unitedwayyavapai.org, or at any National Bank of Arizona branch.
The United Way of Yavapai County, working with the Prescott Fire Department and the Town of Yarnell, will distribute donations to the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew members' families and Yarnell citizens.
The 100 Club of Arizona also will post information on family bank account funds as it receives them.
