A candlelight vigil was held at Lake Merritt in Oakland Monday night for the victims of the fire at the Ghost Ship warehouse art collective in East Oakland. Thirty-six people are confirmed dead so far. In this hour, we remember the victims of the fire, talk about Oakland's underground arts community and take calls from those affected by the blaze. If you have loved ones who are missing or who died in the fire, or if you attended events at the Ghost Ship and have memories to share, we'd like to hear from you.
