CODY, WY (AP) -

The Wyoming Hotshots have raised over $8,000 to help the families of the 19 firefighters killed at the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona.

The Hotshots, based at Bighorn National Forest, collected the money during the Stampede Parade in Cody on July 4th. The firefighters and some of their children collected donations with boots and hard hats on the parade route.

Team member Colton McRann of Lander told the Cody Enterprise that the tragedy is a reminder of how dangerous their jobs are.

The money will be sent to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, which will use the money to help the families of the firefighters.
