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.


  1. I don't believe in curses but that small area has a history of significant fires. 3 fires that went 2nd alarm or bigger at the old Ritz Hotel where Avalon is now located. A large fire at Carlos Body Shop which was located at 40th and Adeline. Big Daddy's Garage where the garden is located burned to the ground. US spring burned in 1986 and went to 5 alarms and now this fire. Maybe the area spirits are not happy?

  2. Not to mention the rash of gunshots in the area in the last few months.��

  3. It's not a curse, there's an arsonist living in the area.
    Not that hard to figure out...
