Mesa man creates Christmas light show in honor of Granite Mountain Hotshots

MESA, AZ - A Mesa man is lighting up the outside of his home this holiday season but not just for those driving by to see.

Aaron Leach has decorated his house from top to bottom with Christmas lights in honor of the fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots.

In addition to the lights, Leach has music as well as a projector and a large screen playing tribute videos to honor the firefighters as well as veterans and those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

The display, located at 8709 E. University Drive, will be up until Jan. 4 for anyone that want to come by and see.

Leach said that while it is free to come out with a chair and a blanket to enjoy the tribute videos and light show, he does have boxes set up for donations of canned food for several local food banks and appreciates anything that people are willing to give.
