TIMELINE: Complaints against Ghost Ship warehouse since 2014

We know the names of three major players in regards to the warehouse and the event.

Chor Ng owns the building, known as the Ghost Ship and leased it to an arts collective run by founder Derick Ion Almena.

Almena then rented out parts of the building to different people, including artists who worked and lived inside the structure.

Jon Hrbako was one of the promoters of Friday's party, who rented the space inside the warehouse for Friday's concert. He also advertised the party on social media and survived the fire.
