Plot hole: The pictures used in the newspaper article regarding the fire are obviously taken after Ponyboy and Johnny ran away since Pony's hair is blond and Johnny's is short (their hair was cut and dyed after they ran, ruling out the photos being old school photos), yet Johnny's face is free of burns. This would mean the pictures were taken while they were hiding in the church, which would be impossible.

Suggested correction: In the book, Ponyboy had his picture taken in the hospital, after the church set fire, and once his hair was dyed blonde. This was then put into the newspaper, so that what the movie was referring to. Of course, they couldn't take Johnny or Dally's photos because they were in the hospital, so they just used older picture of them. Not a plot hole.
