Abstract:

On rolling hills overlooking Oakland, California, thousands of expensive homes were crowded into a lush urban forest. The only way in or out of this little paradise was a series of steep, narrow, winding roads. The signs of an impending catastrophe loomed large. Most of the homes in this area were built with wood frames and untreated wood-shingled roofs. They sat amongst thick flammable vegetation. On Saturday, October 19, 1991 the temperature was very hot and extremely dry, Oakland was in its fifth year of a drought when then the fires began. The final toll of this disaster: over a hundred people were injured, 25 died including 11 on Charing Cross Road. Over three thousand houses, along with more than 400 apartments were leveled. Two square miles of land was scorched; in all over a billion and half dollars worth of damage.
