Hotshots Memorial Partnership reviewing proposals by artists
PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — The Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial Partnership continues to review the submissions for a memorial to 19 Prescott Fire Department firefighters, known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who died in 2013 while working to extinguish a wildfire near Yarnell.
The Daily Courier reports the partnership, in a news release this week, says its members are reviewing the proposals that were submitted by 29 artists this past June.
The memorial is to be located on the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza, where the Yavapai County Supervisors approved space on the southeast corner of the plaza in downtown Prescott.
“Only the Brave,” a film dedicated to the Granite Mountain Hotshots, opens Friday at theaters across North America.
