Yarnell Fire: Prescott Valley memorial service for firefighters

A memorial service for all 19 firefighters killed while battling an Arizona wildfire is scheduled for next week in Prescott Valley.

Authorities say the service is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Tim's Toyota Center arena.

APS told ABC15 it will be covering the costs associated with this service.

The bodies of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots crew members will be taken to Prescott in a public procession Sunday.

They were taken to Phoenix on Monday for autopsies at the Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office.

The firefighters were killed last Sunday while battling a blaze outside the mountain town of Yarnell.

Officials with the hotshot management team say Phoenix Fire Department personnel and the Arizona Honor Guard will accompany the 19 hearses on the 80-mile procession to Prescott that will leave Phoenix at 10 a.m. Sunday.

ABC15 will be streaming the service on abc15.com and on air on Tuesday
