LOS ANGELES (AP) - Three former Southern Californians are among 19 members of a Prescott, Ariz., Hotshot firefighting crew killed in a forest fire on Sunday.

The principal and football coach at Santa Ynez Valley Union High School say 2005 graduate Sean Misner is among the fallen firefighters. The 26-year-old Misner leaves a pregnant wife.

Former Moreno Valley, Calif., fire Capt. Michael MacKenzie of Spring City, Tenn., confirms his son Chris also was killed. Chris MacKenzie, a former Hemet, Calif., firefighter, joined the U.S. Forest Service in 2004 and moved to the Prescott Fire Department about two years ago.

And members of the Los Angeles County Fire Department are mourning 21-year-old Kevin Woyjeck (WOY'-chek), who was the son of veteran county fire Capt. Joe Woyjeck.
