In the aftermath of the loss of 19 firefighters who were killed in late June battling the Yarnell fire, there is some good news coming out of Prescott, Ariz. Amanda Misner, the widow of fallen firefighter Sean Misner, a member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, gave birth to their son on Aug. 22.

The family released the following statement on Aug. 23: “The Misner family deeply appreciates the concern and the many warm wishes we're receiving. As you might imagine, this is profoundly emotional time for us, and we ask that everyone please respect our privacy.
