California fires: How to help

In the past four days, wildfires raging across southern California have forced thousands of people to evacuate, destroyed hundreds of homes, and burned tens of thousands of acres. Firefighters today said they are finally getting control of the fires, but many people are only now returning to survey the damage.

President-elect Obama called both Governor Schwarzenegger and Mayor Villaraigosa yesterday to express his concern over the wildfires and to receive an update on the situation.
