Oakland (Calif.) Tribune investigates the Oakland, Calif., fire department and its inability to control the Oct. 20, 1991, hillside fires that destroyed hundreds of homes and whole neighborhoods; finds that the fire department was poorly trained to meet the challenge posed by the fire, and the city government had failed to heed the lesson from another devastating hills fire 20 years earlier, Oct. 27 - 31, 1991.
