Members of the McLane Black Lake Firefighters Association have set up a fund to help a Tumwater man whose professional camera gear and children’s Christmas presents were stolen from his home in a Christmas Eve burglary.

Capt. Casey Sobol, who attended Capital High School with the older brother of part-time photographer Tim Rogers, said donations can be made at the McLane Fire Station, 125 Delphi Road NW, Olympia, WA 98502, or through a soon-to-be opened account at

Rogers said he came home from visiting friends Tuesday night to find the living room thrashed, with the stockings for his two sons, ages 7 and 10, opened. The Christmas presents for the boys were gone, and the thief even broke open the boys’ piggy bank.
