It has been a tough morning getting to work with a major fire burning a block or two from the office.

What’s been tougher is getting coverage. All the major news outlets have had the same stories up since this morning with partial details and small photos.

In searching for more up to date coverage the local blogs have been great.

If there is any doubt about how blogs will disrupt the traditional media here are some great examples.
