Description
 
A devastating conflagration occurred in the hills above the cities of Oakland and Berkeley, CA, on Oct. 20, 1991. Burning embers carried by high winds ignited overgrown vegetation and led to the further ignition of tree crowns and combustible construction materials of adjacent homes, including many with wood-shingle roofs. The result was a major wildland/urban interface fire that killed 25 people, injured 150 others, destroyed nearly 3,000 homes and apartments, burned over 1,600 acres, and did an estimated $1.5 billion in damage. Contents of this report: Factors Affecting the Wildland Fire; The Fire: Intensity, Response, Commun., Water, Narrow Roads, Mutual Aid, Utilities, and Evacuation; Recommendations; One Year Later. Illustrations.
