The Montecito Firefighter's Charitable Foundation has established a fund to assist the families of the Granite Mountain Interagency Hot Shots.
Nineteen members of the crew were killed when they were overtaken by flames from the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona.
Montecito Fire officials say one of those crew members was the nephew of Operations Chief Terry McElwee and the grandson of former Fire Chief Herb McElwee.
