9 Dead, Dozens Missing in Warehouse Club Inferno


A Northern California warehouse packed with patrons at a venue called the “Rave Cave”, burst into flames last night.

Daily Mail reported that at least 75-100 people were in the factory turned club, when the fire broke out.

Oakland Fire Chief Teresa Deloche-Reed said in a statement,

At least another 25 people are still unaccounted for after the deadly blaze started around 11:30pm in the 1300 block of 31st Avenue during an event advertised as ‘Rave Cave’ featuring musician Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast tour.
We still have to do a more thorough search of the building and we don’t know the potential number of other victims.”

The authorities aren’t sure if many of the missing are still in the building or left on their own to go home or to the hospital.

According to Fire chief Deloche-Reed,

“There was no sprinkler system and firefighters saw no evidence that smoke detectors were activated during the blaze. Many of the people who perished were on the second floor of the club. The building is a huge building,’ Deloach-Reed said. ‘There’s going to have to be a methodical way we go about body recovery, and then also trying to find out where the fire started and how the fire’s spread took place.”

This fire was called the deadliest single structure fire in Oakland’s history.
