Derick Almena and Max Harris, former managers of the Ghost Ship warehouse in Oakland, are going to court on Friday. Prosecutors accuse the men of manslaughter in the blaze which killed 36 people two years ago.

Investigators still don’t know what caused the inferno, but survivors and victims’ families are seeking accountability from those who allowed unsafe conditions to take place.
