This L.A. fire season is already proving to be relentless. The Getty and Saddle Ridge fires are still raging with more than 600 acres burned in the Getty Fire alone, and dozens of neighborhoods still under evacuation notice.
If you’re in need of temporary housing, a few of L.A.’s hotels are offering discounted and even free rooms for fire evacuees (and if you need to know whether you’re in an evacuation zone, check the likes of this up-to-date Los Angeles Fire Department map). If you’d like to donate—in addition to direct, online donations to the LAFD, the Red Cross and California Fire Foundation—a number of area restaurants and shops are donating their proceeds and fundraising for firefighters and others in the fire’s way.
Even LeBron James, a Getty Fire evacuee, is lending a hand, sending Mariscos Jalisco to feed first responders. Here’s how you can help out, too, even if it’s only by ordering a salad for dinner.
The Hoxton Hotel: Downtown’s new boutique hotel only just opened, but the international chain is already diving into the community in a big way.
