The member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots who survived the Yarnell Hill Fire after 19 other firefighters on the crew were killed, was recently interviewed by ABC. In one of the first times he has spoken in detail about the fatalities, Brendan McDonough talked with ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross. It was conducted in the Granite Mountain Hotshots station house and marked the first time Mr. McDonough had been inside it since the Yarnell Hill fire.

The interview will air today, August 7 on “Good Morning America” (7:00 a.m., ET), “World News with Diane Sawyer” (6:30 p.m., ET) and in late-night on “Nightline” (12:30 a.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
