Yarnell Hill Fire: Four military C-130s moving from Colorado to Arizona

YARNELL, AZ - Four military firefighting planes are being moved to Arizona from Colorado.

The National Interagency Fire Center says all four C-130s will be stationed at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway by Wednesday and ready to drop slurry on the Yarnell Fire.
The planes were mobilized last month to fight fires in southern Colorado, including one that destroyed over 500 homes and killed two people.

Air15 flew over the scene and showed a C-130 already on the ground at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport on Tuesday morning.
