Re: “'I Genuinely Thought I Was Going To Die': Reddit User Describes Terrifying Escape From Oakland Warehouse Fire

Alright, I stand corrected about Klub Kommotion and am happy to know all that.
I've been in some pretty unsafe feeling places, there was one on Mission St between 21st and 22nd St. around 10 years ago that was an insane maze (stairs up and then some very illegal stairs down to get to the performance space).
I get what you're saying, Mike, it makes sense. I don't know the details about the Ghost Ship residents worrying about their gear, maybe that was published in another article? We're all upset, maybe I misread the tone of your first post.

Re: “'I Genuinely Thought I Was Going To Die': Reddit User Describes Terrifying Escape From Oakland Warehouse Fire

Most people who live in buildings like this don't know the building code and don't know how dangerous they might be. Otherwise why would they be living there? There are tons of places like this that lots of us go to for art openings or music shows and the venues are fine and we all love the fact that they exist until a tragedy happens. I wouldn't get all high and mighty, Mike, and go blaming anyone involved until we find out what really happened. I'm an architect and I know that if we all built everything perfectly up to code fire-safety-wise only the very rich would be able to afford hosting entertainment venues. That's the reality in the Bay Area. Mike, was Klub Kommotion up to fire code? Probably not, it didn't stop us from going or working there.
