YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) -- An Arizona man who lost his home in a wildfire that killed 19 people says he saw embers on the roof of his garage in his rear view mirror as he fled.
Chuck Overmyer says he and his wife, Ninabill, left with their three dogs and a 1930 model hot rod on a trailer. They gathered at a nearby bar and grill along with other people and watched on TV as their 1,800-square-foot home went up in flames.
The wildfire destroyed 200 houses in the town of Yarnell and the nearby community of Glen Isla. Nineteen firefighters from an elite crew from Prescott were killed in the blaze.
