Arson @ Redstar Senior Apartments

Arson @ Redstar Senior Apartments

Arson was the cause of fire for Redstar Senior Apartments, a four story affordable housing development in Oakland.  Engineered by PBA, the project included four levels of wood framed apartments over one level of a concrete parking garage.  The fire started on the morning of June 21st, when most of the wood framing was  complete but finish and fire protection materials had not been installed.  The entire complex burned down to the concrete level.  ATF investigated and found that the cause of fire was arson.
