Oakland construction fire damage (QuadCopter4)

OAKLAND (KRON) — A massive fire destroyed a construction site in Oakland last Friday and KRON4’s drone, QuadCopter4, got a birds-eye view of the damage on Tuesday.

The fire broke out at around 4:30 a.m. at 23rd and Valdez streets, just two blocks away from the Grand Ave. side of Lake Merritt.

The construction site was a huge project that was supposed to hold 200 apartments and 31,000 square feet of retail space.

A few hours into the fire, a significant part of the building collapsed. The fire was under control by 8 a.m.

Now, federal investigators are trying to determine if arson is to blame.

Here’s a look at the damage:
