“Ghost Ship” Oakland Warehouse Fire Haunts Survivors
- Jan 19 2017
Q: Who is responsible for injuries and death in a building fire?
They never had a chance.
The three dozen young artists and friends who perished at a party in an Oakland warehouse fire in early December were only one block away from the firehouse. But the company’s impressive three-minute response time wasn’t fast enough to save them from catastrophic injuries in the “death trap” known as the “Ghost Ship” – the name given to the warehouse that was converted to an artistic colony.
