California warehouse fire death toll climbs to 33
The death toll from a fire at a California warehouse where a rave party was taking place rose to 33, with the authorities saying they had no idea how many more bodies they may find.
“When we started this investigation, if you would have told us we would have 33 victims, we wouldn’t have believed you,” Sergeant Ray Kelly of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department told reporters, adding that crews had searched less than half of the gutted building.
“I don’t know how many people are left in there. We have no idea how many people were in that building that night... We’re expecting the worst and hoping for the best in regards to how many more victims we find.”
