Tease photo

In little more than four hours, 100 volunteers erected 3,019 flags at the Prescott Valley Civic Center — 3,000 to represent the lives lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and 19 to honor the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who lost their lives fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013.
