Today at least 18 firefighters — members of the Granite Mountain Hotshot Crew — were killed while fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire near Prescott, Ariz.
Twitter liberals wasted no time blaming the fires — and the firefighters’ deaths — on global warming:

We figured Twitter’s jackasses would politicize this disaster, but credit the above tweeters for being first out of the gate.
The fire was caused by lightning, according to local media reports.
