Posted: Updated:

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — President Barack Obama is promising Arizona's governor the necessary federal support to battle the fast-moving wildfire that killed 19 firefighters.

The blaze has spread to 13 square miles, destroying 50 homes and threatening 200 more in the town of Yarnell.

At a Monday memorial for the firefighters, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called it "as dark a day as I can remember."
