Bristol Palin today posted on Bristol’s Blog:
My heart ached yesterday morning as I found out about this:
An out-of-control blaze overtook an elite group of firefighters trained to battle the nation’s fiercest wildfires, killing 19 members as they tried to protect themselves from the flames under fire-resistant shields.
It was the most firefighters killed battling a wildfire in the U.S. in decades.
My prayers go out to the families affected and to all of those who no longer have a place to call home due to the flames. I love the state of Arizona, and I grieve with you over this tragic loss.
