Partygoers feared dead after massive fire in club

Partygoers feared dead after massive fire in club

Several party-goers are believed to have died in a massive fire that has destroyed a northern California warehouse during a party early Saturday morning. It is believed that more than 20 people who were attending the party in Oakland, advertised as a 'Rave Cave', are unaccounted for.

Oakland Police confirmed there are casualties from the fire, but they have not said the exact number of victims, KTVU reported.

The party located in the 1300 block of 31st Ave in the Fruitvale district of the city was reportedly part of musician Golden Donna's ‘100% Silk’ West Coast tour.

Authorities say between 75 to 100 people were in the club for the party when the fire started around 11:30pm.

Now fire officials are trying to account for everyone who was in attendance.

Fifty-five firefighters battled the blaze at the scene, as crews found flames on three sides of the building, Battalion Chief Lisa Baker told the East Bay Times.
