On Tuesday afternoon, the City of Oakland declared an local emergency to allow federal and state funds to be directed to the city following the warehouse fire that claimed the lives of 36 people.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the City of Oakland said the only permitted use for the warehouse is as a commercial space, not for residential nor for public assembly use.

About three weeks before the deadly fire, the city had received complaints that there was an illegal interior building structure at the warehouse and that the building had been remodeled for residential use.
