Great Article on the Yarnell Fire

As a former wild-land fire, I haven't really talked about the Yarnell Fire much until now.  19 fire fighters, members of a hot-shot crew, were killed last Spring.  In fact, although I shared this article with my brother, I didn't read the article until last night.  Once I started reading the article, I couldn't stop.  The author did a great job of describing the events that happened last Spring and I believe was the first journalist to interview the surviving firefighter.  One thing I liked about the article is that its clear where the supervisor made several mistakes but the author doesn't explicitly condemn him.
