SFSU alum dead in Oakland ‘Ghost Ship’ fire

A graduate student at San Francisco State University is among the missing in a deadly warehouse fire that killed at least three dozen in Oakland late Friday, including a 32-year-old alumna of the college.

Michela Gregory, a student in the Graduate College of Education, remains missing after the blaze tore through an artist collective called the Ghost Ship, SFSU President Leslie Wong said Monday.

Officials previously confirmed the death of Donna Kellogg, who graduated from SFSU in 2010 with a degree in cinema.

“We continue to work with fire and police officials to get updated information, but for now I ask that you keep the families affected by this terrible catastrophe in your thoughts and prayers,” Wong said in a letter to the school community.

SFSU is providing additional counseling services to those in need, according to Wong.
