In Oakland, crews continue to look for victims of the fire that ripped through the Ghost Ship Collective last weekend.

The total number of victims who lost their lives while attending a party in the warehouse that housed the collective remains at 36 today. This morning, the Oakland Fire Department's Batallion Chief said that roughly 85 percent of the building has been cleared out. 

Reporting by the Bay Area News Group finds that dangers at the warehouse were repeatedly ignored by the building's manager, owner, and the city.

For the latest on what may have led to the fatal blaze, Take Two's Alex Cohen spoke with investigative journalists, Thomas Peele.
