WATCH: Fire breaks out at Oakland warehouse party
At least nine people were killed after a massive fire in a warehouse in Oakland, Calif., according to a media report.
Fire Chief Teresa Deloche-Reed told the East Bay Times at least 13 people were also unaccounted for.
The fire began around 11:30 p.m. PT at a live-work space during a party which featured musician Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast tour.
Deloche-Reedtodl the newspaper firefighters saw no evidence smoke detectors were activated and there were no sprinklers.
“We still have to do a more thorough search of the building and we don’t know the potential number of other victims,” Deloche-Reed said.
“This is a true loss for the city, for the firefighters who responded, and the people who lost family and friend. Its just tragic, a real tragedy,” she said.
Friends of partygoers have been searching for their loved ones on the event page on Facebook.
Fifty-five firefighters are said to have fought the blaze.
