>> Nine confirmed deaths and that could rise to 40 as fire officials in Oakland, California investigate a warehouse inferno. The two story structure went up in flames during a party late Friday. Plumes of smoke and flames could be seen from far away. Search and rescue efforts, along with the investigation into how the fire even started, made even harder by a collapsed roof and a still-smoldering fire.
Oakland's fire chief Teresa Deloach Reed calling it the worst single structure fire she's ever seen in her career.>> One of the issues getting up to the second floor. There was only one way up and just the one way up and down from the second floor. And it's my understanding that that stairwell was kind of like a makeshift, that they put it together with pallets.
>> The search for survivors complicated because the warehouse was being used for various things including living quarters and makeshift art studios. Officials aren't really sure how many people were even on the property when the blaze erupted, and if any escaped and made it to the hospital.
