One person has been reported dead in an encampment fire at a longstanding West Oakland encampment involving several RVs.

For the second time in about six weeks, an unhoused person living in a Bay Area encampment has died in a fire — following a spate of encampment fires dating back six months or more.

A fire broke out at the Wood Street encampment at 26th and Wood Streets in Oakland around 1:25 p.m. The Oakland Fire Department tweeted at 2:30 p.m. that "Crews remain on scene" and "3 RVs, 2 cars and 1 flatbed truck were burned."

The fire department adds that "5 persons were displaced and one person was found deceased inside an RV."

As SFGate reports via Oakland Fire Department Battalion Chief Frank Tijiboy, residents at the encampment told arriving firefighters that a person was trapped in one of the RVs that was on fire.

This same encampment was the site of a large encampment fire on March 1 that involved multiple exploding propane tanks near the I-880 freeway overpass.

More recently, on March 10, a fire at an encampment a half-mile away involved several RVs, and two dogs died in that fire.

Another fire broke out March 21 at a sanctioned, tiny-home encampment near Lake Merritt, destroying several brand-new tiny home units.

In late February, a homeless woman became trapped and died at an underpass encampment near San Francisco's Glen Park.
