PRESCOTT - A memorial created for the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshot firefighters will be dismantled.
Prescott officials say the fire department and volunteers will begin removing the memorial outside of the Hotshots' station in Prescott.
The 19 firefighters died when winds drove flames into their position in a brush-choked canyon near Yarnell.
The crew was part of the Prescott Fire Department.
In the days afterward, people placed firefighting gear, clothing, flowers and other items outside the station in honor of the firefighters.
The city says items will be removed and sorted for temporary storage and possible use in a future permanent memorial.
