    I lived in the Saybrook Apts.(340 Craft Ave) in Oakland form 1954-1965?–I believe that is when the fire was started behind our building G, by a 14 year old boy with a Mohawk haircut. His parents used to beat him and and he had cigarette burns all over his body. I believe that he lived at or near Joe Hammer Square. I can’t find any info on that fire. My dad was the first to smell the smoke, he got my mom and and my 5 or 6 year brother out. I went with my twin cousins that lived in building H to knock on everyone’s door to get them out. There were 102 families evacuated and only the person that lived on the floor above us died. We couldn’t get him out. He had some medical condition. I felt so terrible about him. I was about 15 or 16. We had no insurance. The Salvation Army put us up at St. Hyacinth Church. We later moved to the Hill district on Burrows St. above Robinson St. I graduated from Schenley H.S in 1968. My mom worked at Frank and Seder until they went out of business. I cannot find any info on that fire.
    I understand they had another fire there several years later. Do have any info on the date of that original fire or any records? By the way, when I was about 6-9 years, I played football under or just over the Brady Street bridge for the Oakland Rams football team(I was the only white kid). I loved that memory. Do you remember the S&B Sandwich Shop on the Corner of the Blvd. of the Allies and Craft Ave? Isaly Plant? I was a patrol boy(while attending Holmes School) on the corner of the Blvd. of the Allies and Bates St. I remember seeing Kruschev go by in his limo passing my corner.

    • Barry,

      Sorry for the delay in responding, I have been very busy on a few new projects. We do not have any negatives or prints in the files of the Saybrook apartment fire. Yes, I remember the S&B sandwich shop and the Isaly plant. I grew up in the south hills (bethel park) but spent a lot of time being a messenger boy for my father and grandfather. Sorry that I could not add more detail to your message.

    Hi Mike,

    I still have not found any records of that fire at the Saybrook Apt. in the mid-sixties.

    BTW, the original owners of the S&B Sandwich shop were the Schefflers (very close friends). They lived on Kenneth Square next to Gene’s Market across from Gerald’s Pharmacy(later became Lou’s Pharmacy).The Saybrooks’ buildings B through H were on Kenneth Square but we all had 340 Craft Ave. as our address due to the main office and Building A on that address across the street from the Gulf Station owned by “Red” Fox. The Fox family later bought and ran the S&B Sandwich Shop from what I was told by a friend.

    All my best to you and your loved ones.

    Thank you for your blog.
