Always a Tier Two team cleaning up after the elite Tier One "Hotshots" who follow the wildfires during the season, the Prescott Wildland Firefighters, under the tireless training and perfectionism of their supervisor Eric Marsh, become the first municipal firemen to become Tier One themselves. A tight family of twenty, they are the lead when lightning ignites the dry tinder on the hills beyond Yarnell. When a storm moves in and the wind shifts, the fire reverses course and picks up incredible speed. By luck, one of the young Hotshots, Brendan makes it out, but Eric and the other nineteen members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots tragically perish.
