Yarnell Hill Fire: Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Administration releases report

PRESCOTT, AZ - New information revealed from the Arizona division of Occupational Safety and Health Administration details the struggles they faced during the Yarnell Hill Fire investigation.

Thousands of pages of documents show how investigators were delayed in their ability to interview state and federal employees that responded to the fire.

The federal government claimed they couldn’t locate some of their employees, and then cited the Privacy Act of 1974 to limit the information they released.

The state then took several days to make employees available.

The report consists of audio and video records and thousands of pages of documents.
