Lockheed L.A. Police collect contributions for fire victims
BURBANK, Calif. (9/8/09)--Lockheed FCU announced that its branches in Southern California will accept contributions to help the Fire Family Foundation until Friday. The collection will help families of two firefighters who were killed Sunday while fighting wildfires in California. L.A. Police FCU, Los Angeles, is also accepting contributions to the fund. The firefighters are Arnaldo Quinones, 35, and Tedmund Hall, 47. Lockheed will give $1,000 to the fund. Members can donate money at any of the credit union’s 10 branches. The Fire Family Foundation (FFF) announced Friday that funds are being made available to assist the victims of the fires. “When you have lost everything, assistance in any amount helps the victims get back on their feet. Firefighters support our communities every day, and now is the time to support them and the victims who have lost their homes and belongings,” said FFF Board Member Pat Engel. On Friday, Bloomberg News reported that the Los Angeles County sheriffs were seeking a suspected arsonist behind the wildfire. The “Station Fire” has burned an area the size of Chicago in the foothills and canyons north of Los Angeles. Besides killing two firefighters, the blaze has destroyed 96 buildings. As of Friday, the fire was about 42% contained.
