With a vantage point just off State Route 89 in Congress, Ariz., Oss' footage clearly showed flames creeping over a mountaintop as thick smoke poured into the air.
Officials on Sunday night confirmed 19 Prescott firefighters had been killed in the 6,000-acre blaze, and 250 structures had been lost.
