Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed an emergency declaration of emergency in response to the growing wildfire in Yarnell, Arizona.

So far the yarnell hill fire has burned more than eight thousand acres and destroyed hundreds of homes.

19 firefighters were killed while working to create a barrier around the flames.

14 of the fallen were in their 20's.

Governor Brewer's order will make 200 thousand dollars available for response and recovery efforts.

That's in addition to authorizing the national guard to deploy.
