Fallen firefighters' loved ones receive flowers on Valentine's Day

PRESCOTT, AZ (CBS5) -

Wives, fiances, girlfriends, moms and grandmothers of the 19 Yarnell firefighters received a special surprise Friday.

The 100 Club, the Prescott Fire Department and the Fry's Food Store on Willow Creek Road in Prescott teamed up to deliver a dozen roses to the women who had the hearts of the fallen heroes.

They said they wanted to show the ladies how loved they are on a day they knew would be especially difficult.

Nineteen of the 20 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshot crew of Prescott died June 30, 2013, while battling the Yarnell Hill Fire.
