The fire station that housed the Granite Mountain Hotshots is going up for sale. Prescott city officials will sell Station 7 in hopes of putting the money toward an employee retirement program.

Nineteen members of the crew died during the 2013 Yarnell Hill Fire, and the station became a memorial to its fallen firefighters.

The Daily Courier reported Monday that family members of the Hotshots initially had expressed interest in buying or leasing the station. The city gave them until May first to find a plan to save the station.

City Manager Michael Lamar says the city didn’t hear from the families by the deadline and decided to put the property on the Multiple Listing Service.
