 25th Anniversary of the 1991 Berkeley-Oakland Hills Firestorm

Small Fire Anniversary Poppy

The cities of Berkeley and Oakland have joined with other community partners to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Berkeley-Oakland Hills Firestorm. The fire burned for three long days, killed 25 people, and destroyed 3,354 homes- 63 of which were in Berkeley. Residents, responders, and city workers have not forgotten the devastation of the fast moving fire, or the emergency crews that came from all over the state to help fight the fire.  To see a list of changes made since the fire 25 years ago visit: 25 Years of Progress Towards a Resilient Berkeley
