Flags will be flown at half staff for the next two days in memory of the Arizona firefighters who died in the Prescott area in recent days.

Effingham Fire Chief Joe Holomy said that Governor Pat Quinn directed that flags be flown at half staff from today through sunset Friday.  19 firefighters were killed when the erratic wildfire left them with no chance to escape.
