Signatures needed on petition to honor Yarnell Hill firefighters

A group has started a petition to honor all 19 firefighters killed in the Yarnell Hill fire, with the Presidential Citizen Award.

The petition is on the "We the People" section of the White House website, and right now it has over 2,000 signatures.

It needs over 97,000 more before the White House will consider it.

The Presidential Citizen Award is the second highest civilian award in the U.S.
