Nineteen members of an elite fire crew were killed in the deadliest wildfire in the U.S. in the last 30 years. Gusty, hot winds blew an Arizona blaze out of control Sunday in a forest northwest of Phoenix, overtaking and killing the firefighters. The "hotshot" firefighters deployed their emergency tent-like fire shelters when they were caught near the town of Yarnell, but the wildfire was too intense. Fire crews in Arizona are trying to control a blaze that killed 19 elite firefighters and destroyed 200 homes. A gas leak at Intel Corp's second-biggest manufacturing plant, located in Chandler, Arizona, sickened up to 43 people, including 11 who were taken to a local hospital, company and local fire officials said on Saturday. less
