It is unclear how many people were rescued from the fire, according to fire officials.
No other people were reported to be missing, Logan said.
Three people who were rescued were injured.
The fire was reported at about 6 a.m. and, according to Oakland Fire Department's Twitter account, it came in as a three-alarm working structure fire. We also spoke to residents who came down the fire escape. The intensity of the fire burned her window and broke the glass on another one of her windows she said.
Oakland Fire Battalion Chief Erik Logan says rescuers spotted what looked like a body on the third floor, but crews had to retreat before they could confirm.
Firefighters are battling a large structure fire Monday morning in Oakland where heavy smoke and intense flames were seen shooting from the three-story building.
Crews are reporting that the roof and floors are collapsing, forcing crews to withdraw from the building.
Last December, 36 people were killed when a fire erupted at a dance party at a sprawling, two-store warehouse in Oakland known as the Ghost Ship that had been leased to an artists' collective.
