Yarnell Hill fire and local coverage

The Yarnell fire story poses a special challenge for our local news providers, including the Courier. With national media covering the ongoing story, our local reporters will be pressured to step up their games and dig out the details that only local connections and knowledge can reveal. For the editors it's an opportunity to prove the paper's relevance and competence with the sort of "real" life-and-death news that they don't often face.

Our hearts go out to the residents of Yarnell and the families and comrades of the firefighters for their grave losses.
