The blaze that put a column of smoke up from South Hill  and destroyed an apartment building didn't kill anyone.

But it left plenty of victims.

Tenants in the apartment lost everything. And if you'd like to help them get back on their feet, bring a donation into The Tailgater bar.                                    

"We're takng anything from toothbrushes and toothpaste to clothes and shoes," says Jenn Mitchell, the owner of the bar, adding, "One of my bartenders was one of the fire victims."

Mitchell has taken money for the victims, and says she's coordinating with the victims to figure out what they need. You can call the Tailgater at 509-328-9000 for more information or just drop in.

So if you want to be a completely copacetic, well-regarded, upstanding, verifiably-awesome member of your community, you know what to do.
