OFD says the fire broke out at an encampment on the corner of East 12th Street and 14th Avenue on Sunday morning. The fire extended into a two-story building nearby. As of 2:12 p.m. OFD considers the fire contained.

According to the city of Oakland, dedicated clean-up efforts started at this encampment location in April of this year, and the most recent clean up took place on Oct. 27. Oakland says that since those efforts began, 17 people have been offered alternative housing.

Thirty vehicles were also removed from the encampment, and the city says most of them were stolen. Over 100 tons of debris and structures have also been removed from the site altogether.
