"The California warehouse where at least 36 people died last week has been on regulators' radar for almost two decades, according to government records.
A habitability investigation of the Oakland warehouse — which had been converted without permits into a hive-like artists' collective known as the "Ghost Ship" — was still pending when the building erupted in flames Friday night during a regular weekly party, according to government records.
The records show that the city was looking into a complaint alleging an "illegal interior building structure" at the warehouse, a two-story, 86-year-old building taking up almost 10,000 square feet."
