A social media page devoted to the 19 firefighters killed in Arizona posted a photo which has angered families and others.

The photo shows what appears to be 19 bodies draped with American flags on a patch of charred earth.  Fire department officials have confirmed the image is authentic but say it was never intended to be public.  At least one of the firefighters’ families has complained about the public posting.

You can see the image and read more about the controversy at the Arizona Republic newspaper’s website.
