The Yarnell, Arizona Fire was ignited by a lightening strike in 2013, and 19 Prescott firefighters died in the fire; their families have been both helped and hoodwinked by charities.
"Two years have passed since 19 Hotshot firefighters lost their lives while battling the Yarnell Hill Fire. Donations began pouring in shortly after the tragedy from all over the world. However, it did attract some fraud and other charities willing to use the tragedy to raise funds for other needs.
"Ray Maione, president of Prescott Firefighter Charities, said his organization works closely with the families and helps to distribute money."--Jeff Van Sant, CBS5AZ.com
