Northern Calif. wildfires: Ways to help victims

- About 10,000 more people were ordered evacuated as two wildfires surged toward small lake towns in Northern California while the state's largest and deadliest blaze of the year slowed slightly after days of explosive growth, authorities said.

The twin fires in Mendocino and Lake counties flared up late Sunday, forcing the new evacuations from the 4,700-resident town of Lakeport and other communities near Clear Lake, about 120 miles (195 kilometers) north of San Francisco. The blazes have destroyed six homes and threaten 10,000 others. So far, the flames have blackened 87 square miles (225 square kilometers), with minimal containment.

Meanwhile, the deadly  Ferguson Fire near California's Yosemite National Park has burned 56,659 acres with 30% containment.

Here's a list of ways to help (according to the Sacramento Bee):
