Video reportedly capturing some of the final moments of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots was posted Saturday on YouTube.

The final investigation report of the Yarnell Hill Fire was also released Saturday morning.

"Granite Mountain Hotshot Christopher MacKenzie shot these last two video clips shortly after 4 p.m. on June 30, 2013," wrote The Prescott Daily Courier. "These are the last images of the hotshots before they tragically died fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire at approximately 4:50 p.m."

According to The Prescott Daily Courier, MacKenzie's father received his belongings from the medical examiner's office and found a small digital camera untouched by the fire.
