Maz Project Burns: "Biggest Fire in Decades"
At 2:45 AM today Alameda County Fire Department received the call; the Maz housing project at 39th Street and San Pablo Avenue was in flames. The fire, fueled by the bare wood studs of the 6 story project still under construction, quickly turned into a six alarm conflagration that was still burning at 9:00 this morning. One unnamed firefighter called it the biggest fire in decades for Emeryville. No injuries have been reported at what is being designated as a crime scene.
