PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer issued a declaration of emergency Monday after a wildfire killed 19 firefighters and forced the evacuation of Yarnell, Ariz.

The declaration frees $200,000 from Arizona's general fund that can be used for emergency response and recovery efforts. The declaration also allows the mobilization of the Arizona National Guard.

The Yarnell Hill Fire has burned about 8,300 acres near Prescott, Ariz. Estimates said about 200 homes in Yarnell were destroyed.
