One year after deadly Ghost Ship fire, friends and family still in grieving

OAKLAND (KRON)-- On the one year anniversary of the deadly Ghost Ship fire, family and friends gathered at the site in Oakland to remember those lives that were lost.

The grieving was still in evidence for those who came to visit the very place their loved ones died.

Ed Bernbaum lost his son Johnathan in the fire. Since his son's death, he founded Vital Art, which is a foundation that hopes to fund safe places for the arts community.

While the Ghost Ship still remains a stark reminder of loss there is hope that it could become a monument to those who perished and perhaps to honor Oakland's arts community.
