Dozens of Fatalities Estimated After Fire at Warehouse Rave in Oakland, California
Dozens of people are expected dead after a massive fire broke out a warehouse rave in Oakland, California. As of last night, 9 people were confirmed dead but the search was delayed because the building’s roof collapsed.
Bob Mule, an artist who resides at the warehouse, smelled the smoke from downstairs and an artist in a cubicle next to him began shouting for help :
“It was too hot, too much smoke, I couldn’t see him. I had to get out of there,” he said.
Police and firefighters have not discovered the source of the fire yet but the building’s structure reportedly made it hard for people to escape. Our prayers are with the families affected by what is expected to be one of the deadliest concert related dires in recent decades.
