Oakland Marijuana Develop Warehouse destroyed in a 3-alarm fireplace in a single day – CBS San Francisco

OAKLAND (CBS SF) – Two Oakland commercial buildings – one of which is home to a large marijuana grower – were destroyed overnight by separate multiple alarm fires, but aggressive fire department responses prevented the flames from spreading to nearby buildings.

A third fire – a two-alarm fire – also severely damaged a home on 12th and East 23rd Avenues. In total, Oakland firefighters received 61 fire-related calls.

Oakland Fire spokesman Michael Hunt said his agency received 911 calls around 12:25 p.m. reporting the fire in a warehouse at 900 Block 77th Avenue.

“At that point, we know that it started as a roof fire,” he said. “But what exactly caused that is not clear at the moment.”

The fire brigade could not rule out that the fire was triggered by the illegal use of fireworks. At the time of the fire, illegal fireworks were being set off in the neighborhood.

The intensity of the fire forced the firefighters to defend the fire, and the crews spent hours pouring water on the smoldering building. At the height of the fire, 40-50 firefighters were on duty.

The building houses two shops – a marijuana grow room and a car repair shop. The three-alarm fire was under control at 3:37 a.m.

No injuries were reported.

There are exposed buildings on three sides of this 3alarm incident, but the crews have restricted the fire to the building of origin. At least two companies operate from this warehouse. #OFD https://t.co/yKxP3ONk49 pic.twitter.com/q00GvzpwZy

At 2:30 a.m., firefighters responded to emergency calls reporting a fire in a two-story apartment building on 12th and East 23rd Avenues.

The fire had broken out in an attic and when the fire brigade arrived, flames broke out of the ventilation slots in the roof.

Firemen arriving found that the building was on fire, which triggered a second alarm. The fire severely damaged the building before it could be brought under control.

The building was the site of earlier fires and was marked red in November 2020, the fire service officials said. The two-alarm fire was under control at 3:22 a.m.
