If we are not allowed to post things like this, I am sorry, but this also deals with at least 2 ADISC members who are now homeless.
4 Pittsburgh furs are now homeless. Thrashbear, fire_lupine, firefoxbc, and landis_mclovin are the 4 furs affected. The house next to the one they were renting caught on fire earlier this morning, and it apparently spread to their home very quickly. The blaze destroyed pretty much everything they owned except for some clothes and some a handful of other possessions. They have received a little bit of aid from the Red Cross, but it will not nearly be enough to replace all their clothing. lildobe has set up a "Fire Loss Fund" with his Paypal, and he is also accepting physical donations for them at his Pittsburgh residence.
I have not been in the furry fandom for a year now, but when I hear about something like this that happened so close to me, I can't help but feel saddened by this. I know that when many furs hear of a death in the fandom, they seem to band together in grievance even if they did not know them at all.
I don't personally know any of the affected individuals, but I did donate to the fund, and I can probably take over some physical donations to them over the weekend.
Anything you can donate to them will help!
The original link I had posted was lildobe's Livejournal on the subject with the donation link.
