Death toll rises to 24, search continues for victims in Oakland fire

The death toll rose to 24 Sunday in the Oakland, California warehouse fire.

As reported by the East Bay Times, Alameda County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly said the death toll is anticipated to rise as the search for missing people continues.

As of now, only 20 percent of the warehouse has been searched, Kelly said.

Fire tore through a two-story building Friday that hosted musician Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast tour. The cause of the fire remains unknown, but the investigation into the incident remains ongoing.

Friends and relatives have posted pictures and messages on the event Facebook page of people they believe are still missing.
