Hours after teen dies in Orinda fire, fundraising page raises $80,000

ORINDA — A social media fundraiser for an Orinda family raised more than $80,000 in its first 21 hours, springing up after a fatal fire that killed a 16-year-old and injured two others early Sunday.
Authorities did not identify the victim Monday. A time stamp on the fundraiser indicated it was established about 3 p.m. Sunday, about 6½ hours after the Moraga-Orinda Fire District put out a statement about the blaze, which happened in the 500 block of Moraga Way just before 4 a.m. Sunday.

The page raised $81,960 by 1 p.m. Monday.
