Large Fire Reported in Oakland, California; Building Evacuated

Around 20 people have been evacuated after a large warehouse fire broke out in Oakland, California. 

The fire broke out earlier this morning at the warehouse, prompting the evacuation of the American Emperor Building. Firefighters were initially sent into the fire, but then were pulled out due to the threat of collapse. The warehouse is reportedly housing many combustible materials, which is allowing the fire to persist.
