Jaxon Misner won't get to meet his dad: The newborn is the son of Sean Misner, one of the 19 firefighters killed in June while battling a wildfire, reports the Arizona Republic. Mom Amanda Misner gave birth last night, and she and the child are doing fine. Jaxon (his first name is officially Sean) will have two friends soon: The fiancee of firefighter Anthony Rose is due in October, and the wife of Billy Warneke in December. (Another of the widows is fighting to receive full benefits from the city of Prescott; her husband was technically a part-time worker.)
