A massive five-alarm fire broke out early this morning at a multi-story, six-building complex under construction in Oakland.
Oakland Deputy Fire Chief Nick Luby said four of the six buildings under construction were completely destroyed.
This is the sixth major residential construction fire in Oakland since 2012. There were three last year. alone. (On a major 2017 fire, see: Massive Fire in Oakland Could Be the Work of Radical Anti-Growth Activists)
Oakland is, of course, a hotbed of extreme lefty radicalism including lefty "black anarchists" who literally want to see the entire current societal structure collapse. Gentrification is a major focus of their hate.
There is suspicion that these anarchists are behind the fires.
Upwards of $100,000 in reward money has been offered for information on some of the fires but no one has come forward.
