OAKLAND (KRON) — A vigil happened Monday night at the site of the ghost ship fire in Oakland that killed 36 people.
It was for those who were among the first on the scene trying to save lives.
It started around 5 p.m. It is one of many we have seen outside the warehouse since the deadly fire erupted a little more than a week ago.
The Oakland warehouse fire also deeply affected first responders who were both there or aware of the deadly loss.
On Monday night, they’ve come together at the site to pay their respect and cope with the tragedy along with the community.
“As a part of our own healing process, we wanted to at least express our own kind of heartfelt connection to the families and friends as well as begin the healing process for ourselves,” said Father Jayson Landeza, Chaplain of the Oakland Fire Department.
