A criminal investigation is underway: fire officials are looking for signs of arson or criminal negligence. A daunting task for firefighters, as they go slowly and methodically through that building. So far, that blaze has claimed 33 lives and only 7 victims have been identified. Authorities say they still have about 60-percent of the building to go through.
It IS the worst fire in Oakland’s history, with the death toll rising above the 25 killed in the Oakland Hills fire in 1991.
