Oakland Fire Ripped Through EDM Party That Did Not Have City Permits — Dozens Of People Are Still Missing As Officials Prepare For The Worst

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad SadScary!NewsViral: News

no title

This tragic story is still on our minds after breaking yesterday, and we are absolutely heartbroken for all the victims and their loved ones.

As you remember, a fire ripped through an EDM performance at a warehouse-type structure in Oakland on Friday night, killing at least nine people and trapping likely dozens more.

Now, officials have revealed that the event organizers would have needed special permits to hold the rave there — permits they apparently did not have.

To boot, Oakland's Mayor Libby Schaaf and Planning and Building Director Darin Ranelletti revealed at a press conference late yesterday evening that a complaint had been made recently about "unpermitted construction" taking place in the warehouse just a few weeks ago.

Officials were still investigating that claim as the fire broke out on Friday night.

The fear, of course, is that because the structure is so unique — and perhaps dangerous — it could have trapped far more people inside than what would happen in a typical fire of this type, and officials are already planning for the worst when it comes to search and recovery.

There's one (major) problem:

The party, dubbed the "Rave Cave" with EDM performers there like Golden Donna, was interrupted at about 11:30 pm last night when the fire started and spread.

The fire was so strong — and there was apparently no sprinkler system in the building — that by even five hours later, firefighters were unable to contain the blaze.

As you can see (below) the fire looks both massive and imposing:

coachella concertgoer dies apparent overdose 24 girl kimchi truong sad<br />

When Bay Area beauty Kimchi Truong traveled to Indio, CA last weekend to attend what has arguably become the world's most popular music festival, we doubt her friends and family ever fathomed the possibility that she might never return.

Unfortunately, they were wrong.

The 24-year-old girl collapsed at Coachella last Saturday, apparently as a result of overdosing on drugs and alcohol. Though she was quickly treated at nearby medical facilities and eventually rushed to John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, doctors were ultimately unable to save her.

After later being transferred to Desert Regional Medical Center, Kimchi was pronounced dead on Thursday.

Investigators say it all started Saturday night/Sunday morning when she
