Oakland Fire; 11 More Names Released Of The 36 Dead

Update: Oakland Fire Kills 36 People: Who Is The Blame For This?

Oakland Warehouse (Nightclub) Fire, were a Rave Party for artists was hosted for Golden Donna, is one of the worst fires in California History. At least 36 people died in that fire Saturday morning; 25 people were still missing a few days ago.

Who is the blame for this? Should the Building Owner or the Party Hoster be held accountable for this?

The authorities have put their search on hold for the recovery of more when the crew that was surveying the destruction from a neighboring rooftop noticed that the front wall was leaning 3 inches toward the center of the building, Chief Melinda Drayton stated.

“For us as firefighters, working under a wobbly, potentially collapsing exterior wall is extremely dangerous. We will not put our firefighters in danger at this point and we will not put Alameda County sheriff’s in the precarious situation with us.” Drayton continued. “We absolutely believe the number of fire fatalities will increase.”

Investigators stated the fire started in the back of the building, but they don’t know how it started. Alameda County District Attorney’s Office will be doing a complete criminal investigation to check for foul play that took the lives of so many innocent people at 1305 31st Ave.


Alameda County released the names of 11 of  those 36 victims recovered, 11 have been identified. Cash Askew, 22, David Cline, 23, Travis Hough, 35, and Donna Kellogg, 32, all of Oakland; Sara Hoda, 30, of Walnut Creek, Calif.; Brandon Chase Wittenauer, 32, of Hayward, Calif.; and Nick Gomez-Hall, 25, of Coronado, Calif.

Authorities released the names of 7 of the 36 victims Sunday, but one of the victim’s name wasn’t release because he is a minor-adult, 17 years od. And three of the victims name will be released later on today.
