After the Fire: Ashes and Aspirations

The 1991 Oakland-Berkeley hills firestorm destroyed nearly 4,000 single-family dwellings and apartment and condo units. Tucked under the train and freeway overpass on the west side of College Avenue, the Rockridge BART station Firestorm Tile Wall commemorates the disaster with ceramic tiles hand painted by local school children. The mural is easy to miss or take for granted but well worth close examination, as the images reflect the memories and feelings of youngsters affected by the historic blaze.
