YARNELL, AZ (CBS5) -

People in Yarnell are celebrating the completion of the first rebuilt homes that were destroyed in the deadly wildfire this summer.

The city is hosting a holiday home tour and dedication on Friday. At least six homes are on the tour and the event will wrap up with a house lighting and song.

"We Build Arizona" gave a gift of $225,000 worth of piping to help the community rebuild after the fire destroyed more than 100 homes.

Nineteen of Prescott's Granite Mountain Hotshots lost their lives battling the blaze on June 30.

Earlier this week, 12 more insurance claims were filed relating to the wildfire and the deaths of the 19 firefighters.

They're asking for approximately $200 million.

CBS 5 News will have live reports from Yarnell at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.
