Reinforcements poured in Monday to battle a runaway wildfire which quadrupled in size overnight after killing 19 firefighters in one of the worst such incidents in US history. The Yarnell Hill fire -- which killed all but one member of a 20-strong 'hotshot' team -- was the biggest loss of firefighters' lives since the September 11 attacks, and the most from a US wildfire in 80 years.
