Fires and looting raged through Baltimore during late Monday's riots, creating one of the most violent public outbursts since the protests following the shooting of Michael Brown. As peace is slowly restored, more than 1,900 Baltimore residents and counting are stepping forward, volunteering to clean up the aftermath through a Facebook group.
