    So they KNEW about it for TEN YEARS. And it was an artist studio. That means that the public went in and viewed the ART at times. I am certain the authorities could have gone inside if they really wanted to. They dragged their feet because they didn't want to displace all of those artists, imo.

    They said an inspector went and could not gain entrance. Well FFS, WAIT until you see someone coming or going. There were dozens who lived and worked there. Just sit undercover in a car and wait. A child could figure that out. If there was someone inside that owed the city money, I bet they could figure out how to 'gain access.'

    Night shot - there is what looks like where a garage door is. This is the first time I have seen it . On right is that new?

    It gives insight into the depth of debris. Its feet high what a mess

    Some folks described a plastic burning smell?

    The owners post was nauseating - hummm talks about wanting wealth and his family is staying in a hotel not there, where they live??

    I am so sorry to hear of this. I pray that she is just in shock and cannot be found right now, but is alive and safe. I will keep you and her and your family in my prayers, and ask my husband to do the same. What an awful thing to happen. Katt

    Hi

    That is where I am
    Dozens have been located!

    I do not recall a story that remained "stagnant" so long.

    I wonder if there was any social media promoting this 'dance party' and this band's 'tour.' If so, they can also be in legal trouble, if there were no permits. Hard to believe a band would set up in such a precarious place as a 2nd floor made up of a staircase of pallets placed haphazardly as has been described.

    Here is video inside

    [video=youtube;d-Jma50bAMs]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-Jma50bAMs[/video]

    It seems to me like a cop car driving by would know there are people in there and they are not supposed to be??


    maybe the lights caught fire. Looks like christmas tree lights

    You know what? Right now I don't care whether this was an illegal living space, an art gallery, a condemned warehouse...these are all details/issues for the city of Oakland to deal with. The landlord will get whats coming to him *if* the news reports are correct.

    If this is a horrible, horrible accident, or arson, the investigators will work it out and I trust it will be dealt with appropriately.

    Right now I'm devastated for all those souls who were lost. All those who are still missing. All those who were just living life and are no longer with us.

    I can't believe some of the comments on social media callously joking about the victims. It makes me sick. This is an absolutely awful event on a par with the Great White show at The Station nightclub. It's a tragedy and should be treated as such.

    Gitana1 my thoughts are with you.
