Along with the report on the Yarnell Hill Fire, investigators also released a video in an attempt to explain what happened.

Like the report, the video doesn't answer all the questions surrounding the deaths of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots, but it is a pretty good visual representation of how the fire spread, how the crew got trapped, and some of the events that led up to that.
