INDICE DE GALERIAS
PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — An evening memorial for the 19 firefighters killed in an Arizona wildfire brought thousands of mourners to a high school football stadium.
The service in the mountain town of Prescott marked the first opportunity for many in the community to gather together since the men fighting a fire in nearby Yarnell died in the line of duty.
The crowd filled the bleachers of a 3,000-seat stadium, with many attending also sitting on the field.
The service struck a deeply religious tone with preachers urging the crowd to offer the families of the victims their love and support.
After one moment of silence, 19 purple balloons – one for each of the fallen firefighters – were released into the air.
The memorial Tuesday came after one held the previous afternoon at a gymnasium.
