Oakland Warehouse Manager Says He's Sorry After Fire Killed 36
The manager of the Oakland warehouse, known as the Ghost Ship, said he was sorry after a fire killed at least 36 people there during an electronic music event Friday night.
Derick Almena turned the warehouse into an artists' living space and rented out rooms. The Associated Press reports residents told Almena about the potentially hazardous living conditions, but he didn't do anything about them.
During an interview with The NBC Today Show, the hosts asked Almena who should be held accountable for the deaths. He dodged the question and said he didn't want to talk about it.
