The Wall Street Journal: Death toll in Oakland party warehouse fire climbs to 33

OAKLAND, Calif.—Jose Avalos, 38, a woodworker and artist who lived in the two-story warehouse here known as the Ghost Ship, was in bed watching Netflix Friday night. In another part of the warehouse, people gathered for a night of electronic music.

Suddenly, Avalos heard someone yell, “Fire! Get an extinguisher!” Then came shouts for people to escape. “I grabbed both my dogs, jumped down from my loft and tried to break through the front doors of my studio,” he said. “When I finally made it out, I kind of stumbled into a few people. I told them to follow me.”

They were the lucky ones.
