YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) - Crews have made significant progress in controlling a fire that killed 19 firefighters over the weekend.

Authorities said the fire near Yarnell is now 45 percent contained, up from 8 percent earlier in the day and zero a day ago.

Firefighters had cooperative weather that allowed them to achieve a breakthrough on the same day that they came off the line to salute a procession of vehicles that had been left by 19 Hotshot crew members killed in the line of duty.
