For families of dead firefighters, a fight over compensation

Questions about how to compensate families of fallen firefighters have a greater resonance this year, one of the deadliest for wildfire crews in a decade. It has been a summer of tearful remembrances and makeshift memorials from North Carolina to Oregon, to central Arizona, where 19 hotshot firefighters died in the chaparral mountains. In all, at least 26 wildland firefighters have died so far this year, according to government figures, and blazes are still raging across the West.
