Help for fire victims

LA Times photo

As fire crews continue to make progress in Southern California, the LA Times has turned part of its attention to helping those burned out or otherwise displaced by the disaster.

This page has several ways to contribute, including a special fund set up by the paper along with KTLA and the McCormick Tribune Foundation. I thought it was particularly cool because the foundation is matching at least the first half a million dollars raised, and the Times and its partners are covering all administrative causes. Unfortunately the link for the LA Times Family Fund is broken, so if you want to check it out, go here.

In other fire news, Kevin Roderick at LA Observed has an update on that awesome photo of huddled firefighters that we talked about the other day. The picture became a story on NBC News, including truly moving interviews with the photographer, Karen Tapia-Anderson, and the firefighters. Roderick provides links. Incredible.
