Plymouth part of Hotshots memorial



The Plymouth Fire Department was represented in a memorial in Prescott, Ariz., for 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots firefighters who perished June 30 in the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona, thanks to the efforts of Prescott resident and Plymouth native Seth Born. Born was friends with one of the Hotshots, John Persin Jr., who was killed in the fire. After the incident, firefighting gear, t-shirts, flowers and other items from all over the US were placed outside the Prescott fire station in honor of the Hotshots. Born asked his mother in Plymouth to contact the Plymouth Fire Department for items for the memorial. Fire Chief Ronald Nicolaus donated a patch while firefighter Chris Lund contributed a tshirt and Wisconsin and EMT patches. Volunteers began removing the memorial Sept. 10 and sorting the items for temporary storage to be used in a future permanent memorial in Prescott.
