Are You Satisfied With the Report on the Yarnell Hill Fire?
The "deployment site," where the 19 firefighters died.
Fire officials released their report this weekend on the Yarnell Hill Fire, and the deaths of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots.
Despite the number of pages in the report, it provides few relevant details.
Investigators appear to have very little clue as to what the hotshot crew was doing for about 30 minutes before their deaths.
Some fire officials had made claims about the fire and the hotshots' deaths that weren't detailed in the report. Those same fire officials were the ones presenting the report as a factual account of what happened, and questions at a Saturday morning press conference were deflected repeatedly.
Here's our question this morning: Are you satisfied with this report on the Yarnell Hill Fire?
