Diane J. Helm talks about the tragedy that occurred just yards from the ranch where she and her husband Lee live — the safe area that Granite Mountain Hotshots were near on the day they died fighting the June 2013 Yarnell Hill Fire. Helm began journaling the experience just days after the tragedy, and she recently released a new book, “Fire on the Wind.” (Cindy Barks/Courier)
