  • Search for Ghost Ship warehouse fire victims continues in Oakland

    Firefighters in Oakland, California knocked down part of the wall of the Ghost Ship warehouse, where a fire killed at least 36 people on Friday night. Investigators are still searching for more bodies, and officials had said an unstable wall was posing a safety hazard to those searching the structure, and hampering the search.
