The city ultimately investigated more than 70 complaints of illegal housing at storefronts, churches or warehouses and more than 140 complaints for homes and apartments with garages, basements or other structures illegally converted to housing. Some of the complaints specifically cited the Ghost Ship warehouse; others simply expressed fears the spaces were dangerous. Many were unfounded. Five weeks after the fire, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf issued an executive order, directing city employees to work cooperatively with landlords to bring the buildings up to code while t preserving the spaces as affordable. But the mayor’s message apparently didn’t filter down to all the troops. Inspectors delivered notices from the city telling them to restore their buildings to their original uses and “discontinue residential occupancy.”.

The legislation, if signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, commits $165 million a year for five years to thin forests and $35 million a year for five years to fund prescribed burning projects. The majority of the forests now burning in the fast-moving Delta Fire haven’t seen fire since the early 1900s, when records were first kept, according to Knapp. A similar fate could await other woodlands. We’re far behind in forest management, according to John Laird, California’s secretary for Natural Resources. About 500,000 acres of forest each year need to be treated in California; last year, we treated only half that.
