Rave Inferno in Oakland

Postby Peter1469 » Mon Dec 05, 2016 4:06 am

Rave Inferno in Oakkland

This is pretty crazy. The building was an old warehouse and not up to code for people living in it or throwing large raves. My guess is that a lot of young people from the art scene lived in the abandoned warehouse and held parties there. Something went wrong this time and a fire started.

During an afternoon press conference, city officials said that the building owner had been cited by the city just last month and an investigation was underway into if the interior of the structure was illegal.

Officials said that the last use of the property was legalized to be just a warehouse and not a residential building, as the city was investigating reports that people were living inside the warehouse.


A city inspector had attempted to secure access to the building on November 17, but the official was not able to enter inside. The city has not confirmed people were living inside.

Also during the press conference, a city official said the building had no permits for a party to be held at the space. 

Alameda County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Ray Kelly said they fear up to 40 people could have possibly died. 
Arson investigators have been on the scene since the morning to help with the investigation, as well as federal authorities.

Sgt. Kelly said that people inside during the party either escaped unscathed or were trapped inside. 
'Right now there's 25 names of people that have not been accounted for,' Deloach-Reed said. 


'We're not sure if they have already self-transported to the hospital or they have gone to friend's home. We're not sure. 

'This is a true loss for the city, for the firefighters who responded, and the people who lost family and friend. It's just tragic, a real tragedy.'
