The front of a small apartment building in the Pico-Union neighborhood collapsed Sunday night, injuring at least four people. A portion of the building in the 1600 block of South Westmoreland Avenue collapsed shortly before 9 p.m. Fire officials said between 20 and 30 people were inside at the time. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening. Firefighters were shoring up the rest of the building, partly to ensure that it would not fall on neighboring buildings. Assistant Chief Rick Garcia of the Los Angeles Fire Department said officials were "relatively sure" that no one was buried in the rubble.

"The fire was so devastating that we didn't know what was where," said Franklin, vice president of Har-Bro Inc., a contracting firm that specializes in cleaning up and restoring fire-damaged buildings.

Final minute, Lambeau Field, game on the line: --Bart Starr goes over Jerry Kramer: touchdown, Packers win. --Jerome Bettis runs behind Wayne Gandy: holding, Packers win. The Packers' NFL title victory over Dallas on the frozen tundra in 1967 will long be remembered, but the Rams (2-4) will do their best to forget Sunday's second-half collapse, which allowed the Packers (3-3) to overcome a 17-3 halftime deficit for a 24-17 victory.

Re "Sterlings will settle rental bias case for $2.7 million," Nov. 4 Kudos to The Times for reporting on Donald T. Sterling's legal troubles. It should be common knowledge to readers that Sterling runs numerous advertisements in the newspaper touting his humanitarianism. This smacks of damage control. And shame on the many groups, such as the NAACP, that honor Sterling in light of his discriminatory practices as a landlord. Monetary donations should play no part in reputation rehabilitation.
