fire started. like we mentioned, one woman was burned. we spoke to a neighbor who says the building has been a problem for the while. and that he had community meeting about it. but she says it shows how severe the housing crisis is in the bay area. . >> people lose a lease. i mean i knew a very good carpenter and handyman who was -- who had to live work space in the building. and he moved out because it was unsafe. but he couldn't find another apartment. >> reporter: the oakland fire department says this building caught fire in 2014 as well. the roof partially collapsed during the fire. as for this fire, there was loads of debris pulled out of the building in what was a live- work space. the department says all the items inside and the partition walls made the fire fight harder. now back out here live, you can still see that the fire
