200 homes destroyed in blaze that killed 19

YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) ? A wildfire that killed 19 firefighters in Arizona also destroyed an estimated 200 homes in a central Arizona community.

Dry grass near the communities of Yarnell and Glen Isla fed the fast-moving blaze, which was whipped up by wind and raced through the homes.

Nineteen firefighters died fighting the blaze.

Most people had evacuated from the town of 700, and no injuries or other deaths were reported.

The Red Cross has opened two shelters in the area ? at Yavapai College in Prescott and at the Wickenburg High School gym.
