The search for more peopled killed in an Oakland warehouse fire has resumed. Work had stopped just after midnight because a wall was leaning inward, posing a safety hazard for those who have been searching the structure.

Authorities say about 70 percent of the building has been searched so far. The fire erupted during a dance party late Friday night.

The death toll has grown to 36 with more victims expected to be found in the rubble in the coming days.
