An effort to develop a better fire shelter following the deaths of 19 wildland firefighters in Arizona six years ago has failed.
Officials at the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise in a decision on Wednesday said the current fire shelter developed in 2002 will remain in use.
The Arizona firefighters had deployed that same type of shelter in 2013, but still died in the blaze.
