By Peter Henderson OAKLAND, Calif. (Reuters) - A massive fire broke out in Oakland, California, during a late-night party in a warehouse that housed artist studios, killing at least nine people and leaving about 25 missing, the city's fire chief said on Saturday. Fire officials have not yet determined how the fire started or an exact number of fatalities in the blaze, said Oakland Fire Chief Teresa Deloach Reed, who called it the worst single-structure fire she had seen in her career. "We are hoping that the number nine is what there is and that there are no more,” the fire chief said, referring to the number of known fatalities.
