Dierks Bentley holds sell-out benefit concert for Yarnell victims

Posted: Updated:
PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. -

A sold-out benefit concert is being held in Prescott Valley Monday night for the fallen members of the Granite Mountain HotShot crew. 19 firefighters were killed earlier this month while battling the Yarnell Hill Wildfire.

The concert was organized by valley native Dierks Bentley. He was one of four artists who performed.

The Country Cares concert was expected to raise over $300,000 for families of the Yarnell firefighters. All the proceeds from ticket sales are going directly to the families.

About 6,000 people attended Monday night's show.

FOX 10's Anita Roman reports.
