The bodies of 19 firefighters killed working a wildfire near Yarnell, Az, were transported to their home base of Prescott, Az, Sunday. Many area residents lined the motorcade route to honor them. The nearly five-hour-long procession began near the state Capitol in Phoenix, went through the town where the Granite Mountain Hotshots were killed and ended in the mountain community of Prescott, where they lived and will be laid to rest this week.
