At 4:35 p.m., it's clear the hot shots are preparing for a burn over.
Division Alpha: "Yea, I'm here with Granite Mountain Hotshots, our escape route has been cut off. We are preparing a deployment site and we are burned out around ourselves in the brush and I'll give you a call when we are under the she, the shelters."
During the next minute and a half, the operations center and air support work to locate the trapped hot shot crew.
Bravo 33: "Okay, uh, we're workin' our way around there. We've got uh several aircraft comin' to ya. We'll see if we can't take care of business for you."
Bravo 33: "Division Alpha, Bravo 33, I need you to pay attention and tell me when you hear the aircraft okay. Cuz it's gonna be a little tough for us to see ya."
Between 4:37 p.m. and 4:41 p.m., there are several inaudible radio transmissions from an unknown frequency – possibly the hot shot crew – as a subdued-sounding air support crew member tries to make contact.
Bravo 33: "Granite Mountain 7, Bravo 33 air to ground."
The Granite Mountain Hot Shot crew never responded.
The Yarnell Hill Fire burned over their deployed shelters around 4:42 p.m. – killing 19 men.
