I want to say one thing about the fire that destroyed an under-construction development not super far from my house in West Oakland this morning https://t.co/U5VntWEcq0
The city is investigating the fire as a potential arson because this is the 5th fire like this in just over 2 years and officials determined 3 of the earliest were deliberately set.

Libby Schaaf is describing these fires as “an attack on keeping families housed” because the city needs to build housing as quickly as possible. This is the cost of the properties that were destroyed today—WHO is able to afford almost $700k property? pic.twitter.com/b0nYpsCHhm
