TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A 13-year-old Phoenix girl made headlines with a self-written song called "19 Heroes," a tribute to the 19 fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots.

It's one of countless ways communities are giving back as the one year anniversary of the Yarnell Hill Fire tragedy approaches on Monday, June 30.

A crew in Phoenix completed a customized truck in memory of the 19 Hotshots who died. It has ties to the Hotshot crew's captain who was rebuilding the pickup truck but never got to finish it.

A shop in Phoenix called Street Rods by Auto Art started working on it last August. They finished it this past weekend so it's ready to be moved to Prescott as a memorial.
