The fire broke out shortly after 2 a.m. in Dormitory O, a segregated housing unit for Kaiser Shipyard workers at 11th Street and Potrero Avenue in Richmond.

A city housing authority patrolman, seeing the flames, fired shots in the air to awaken the inhabitants. Fire crews arriving on scene found the nearest hydrant rusted and useless.
