PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A camera recovered from one of the fallen Arizona firefighters killed battling the Yarnell Hill Fire shows the crew working just an hour before their deaths.
The Prescott Daily Courier report the camera was among the charred belongings of Christopher MacKenzie, a member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.
The images show that as late as 4:02 p.m. on June 30, the Hotshots had stopped on top of a ridge while Captain Jesse Steed was talking on the radio to crew Superintendent Eric Marsh.
Steed can be heard in the video clips saying the fire had almost reached the two-track road the crew had walked in on.
The images are the last known photos and videos of the crew. This is the first time they have been made public.
