of the deputies here now have just come on. family members are welcome to come back here. they tell me there's plenty of food still but as far as red cross and counselors, they don't know, but it's possible they will be back here to help families when the families return, if they do. as you see in this video all day yesterday loved ones were coming and going. a terrible and emotional time for them. they have come from out of the area. some came straight from the airport. one woman who talked to us is desperate to find her sister-in-law, 35-year-old jennifer. she is from oakland but spends a lot of time in merced, as well. she's married and has many close family members. >> please, just call us. we are all looking for you, your mom, your dad, everybody, your husband. please, just call any of us. if you are around, something happened, with he don't care windchill he just want to know if you are alive or not. >> we understand the sheriff's

everybody loved her. we talked about she'll just pop out of nowhere and say, hello, guys, i'm here. >> his niece is 20 years old. she's a painter and lives in oakland. her uncle said it's not like her to not keep in contact with the family. >> the we spoke to a woman who said she was inside the ghost ship building just days before the fire broke out. she described to us what it hooked like before the tragedy. >> it looks pretty junky. lots of boxy -- like weird boxes and with curtains. people lived in there like art spaces and a staircase in the middle. just made out of no art -- no structure whatsoever. just like piled stuff up to the top floor. >> oakland city council member represents the neighborhood and lives a block away.
he said there had been a lot of complaints about the ghost ship. he was there early yesterday morning watching that emotional scene unfold. >> i stood on the corner at 3:00 in the morning crying because i lost some friends. they went to the party because it was posted online. they were in the party. they ran down because of smoke, and they stood there crying because their friends didn't come out. >> the you can just imagine how confusing it was when the fire broke out. the warehouse itself, according to officials, kind of like a maze. now we are getting a better look at what it looked like inside. >> one said -- the bay area newsroom posted this photo. the first floor is a large open area in the corner they called a makeshift kitchen, and near the main entrance the kitchen was. then you have the second floor. it looks like there's four
separate rooms. from all the pictures we've seen, the entire warehouse is full of art and clutter, and you can imagine what it was like if they had dozens and dozens of people inside for the party, as well. officials tell us there was an exit on the second floor but at some point the fire broke out and everything was just blocked off. >> as for the people who lived inside the building, again, as katie mentioned, it appears they are safe this morning. however, the planning department said no one should have been living there in the first place. >> we know the last designated use of the property was as a warehouse. we had received recent complaints about blight and uncommitted construction at the property. we had opened an investigation and that investigation is ongoing. >> here are pictures from google earth showing how much debris has grown in the building side yard over the years. the first picture was back in june, 2013. then the next several were taken over a two and a half year period.
you can see how that trash was just accumulating, growing. by 2015 the empty yard was packed where there had been an empty yard but you see now the cars and debris. >> the i-team dan noyes has been looking into this, specifically the man run being the artist collective inside the warehouse. >> dan has more from the newsroom. >> fire officials briefed on the have eggs underway tell abc7 news it doesn't look like a case of arson but criminal charges are still a possibility. one key person is this man, derek ian. he founded the ghost ship artist collective and rented it at that location. people said he was warned about the fire hazard but he reportedly laughed off the warnings. i reached out to him and have not heard back. on his facebook page he posted something that's getting a lot of attention. he wrote confirmed, everything i worked be for is gone. blessed that my children and
micah were at a hotel safe and sound. i'm now standing in poverty of self worth. several people blasted him for focusing on his own situation instead of the terrible loss of live. derek held frequent parties at the warehouse. flyers promoting them are still on his website, as is a video from one party this pastzine. planning and building department said he should have requested a special permit but he did not. so many people crowded in the small space so cluttered with what would have become fuel for the inferno. dan noyes, abc7 news. >> a lot of people are stunned by the tragedy. they are turning to social media. the mayor tweets the oakland fire and the loss of so many young people are is heart breaking. our thoughts with all those affected bit tragedy. and the niners tweeting out thoughts and prayers to everyone affected bit the oakland fire

inside the sheriff's office. he tells me they were able to move a lot of debris out overnight and they do see more victims. they did recover a tenth victim. look behind me, this is where the work is going on. you see the tents and the tarps. he tells me those were put up out of respect for the dignity and privacy of the victims and their families. so investigators working behind those tarps all night long. outside the police perimeter is a memorial. people have brought flowers to remember those who died here. this was a huge warehouse where artists gathered to do their work and share ideas and some have said there were people living here, too. it wasn't permitted for residential use. those inside describe it as a place where individual living places were sectioned off with partitions. there was a lot of stuff in there, a lot of fuel for a fire. >> when you walk in, there was a ton of kind of wooden elements to the space. there's rooms that were
constructed out of antique wood. it was just clear the space was very much constructed of wood. very much kind of, you know, prime for something, if a tragedy were to happen, there were the elements in place for it to happen. >> here's a look at the dump trucks being used to haul stuff out so investigators can get in there and do their work. they have confirmed ten people died here. they have recovered ten bodies. they do expect to find more victims. they can see more inside, and they do plan to give us another update, a public briefing at 8:00 this morning. live in oakland, amy hollyfield, abc7 news. >> it's not the news we want to see that they are seeing more bodies, but he we appreciate that update from the scene. the i-team is recovering more about the warehouse itself and the investigation that was already open because of ongoing issues there. dan has the story from the
newsroom. >> at the time of the fire the planning and building department had an open investigation into problems at that warehouse. just three weeks ago a neighbor complained about a ton of garbage piling up on the property. but the main building was remodeled for residential. the change caused the neighborhood to look very bad and created a heather ishimarua. the health inspector took she's pictures of debris and tried to go in but was not able to gain access. he started an investigation into illegal interior building structure. at this point be we know people were living there. those familiar with the ghost ship artist collective say people have been living there for years, even though it's zoned as solely a warehouse. we've been unable to reach the building owner, a 62-year-old woman. her daughter told the l.a. times they thought nobody lived there. they said sometimes some people worked through the night, but that is all. on the interior, this is from the website, you see evidence of people living there, including
beds. you see an collection of art and junk, makeshift railings from scraps of wood. people who escaped having to climb down an uneven makeshift staircase. they said bad wooden palets inside the house fueled the horrible blaze. for the i-team, dan noyes, abc7 news. >> you heard amy saying she talked with a sheriffs deputy who say they have been able to clear more of that debris and they do see more bodies. it has been a painful waiting period for families and friends of the partygoers who are still missing. officials have advised them to head to the sheriff's substation on east twelve station to get updates. abc7 news reporter katie marzullo is there now, and, indicate itty, i imagine more people will be heading there later this morning? >> carolyn, it's certainly possible. the doors are open here to anyone who wants or needs to be here. and i do have a new piece of

with them. i tried calling and its not like her to not respond to a text. >> i'm more infuriated that i'm not able to help. i want to be there. give me some gloves. i have work shoes. i'm ready. let me find my brother. >> painful to listen to people who are in this situation. that was dan, he is looking for his brother, alex vega and his girlfriend mckayla gregory. they have been together for four years. they worked together at a mortuary and her car was found in san bruno. the substation near the ghost station is open to family members and grief counselors are arriving on scene as i spoke. abc7 news. >> one of the missing is vanessa plotken. she started at u.c. berkeley in august and she's from los angeles. her cousin posted she's been
missing since the fire broke out. >> now witnesses said he saw young people running from the building. he said they were in a daze looking for their friends. >> they said they were in that party. it was an online party, underground and there was about 60 people or more in there. and they were the last two that they know that got out and they were worried about their friends that might be in there. they come from somewhere. they aren't from here. they have never been to that building before. they said there was smoke everywhere, come out it was pitch-black. they said the only reason they got out, they heard voices and they followed the voices to get out. they were upset. he just said there were a lot of people behind him and he cannot see anybody come out of the building after they left. >> he said it was chaotic. the two were lucky to get out. if you would like more information about the fire recovery, head to our website where photos of people reported missing by their loved once, and

he has not been heard from, as well. his picture was posted by a writer for the daily californian a couple years ago. went to the party with two former colleagues from the daily cal, who all shared stories, not on camera with us, but have taken to social media to share what happened. one posted he two friends went to the party, they went inside, hung out for a couple of minutes, saw what was going on. went back outside, went to a liquor store to get beer and when they came back the place was fully engulfed in flames. they were in disbelief and taking the pictures you are seeing now, alongside people who were crying and screaming in disbelief. michael rosen, who was a staff writer at the californian, a sports columnist, shared a first person account in the daily beast.
he talked about his place, in his words, was a tinderbox on the inside with clutter and lots of food. -- lots of fuel there. he tried to go up to the second floor on a steep board that was very slippery. the only way he could get up there was to put his feet into the notches cut into the board or otherwise it was so steep he would have fallen down. it is a very devastating time for all involved. none of them wanted to go on camera with us. i talked to mr. rosen by phone, and he explained how he was just tired, praying, and so sad because of what happened there. once again, there are up to three students from u.c. berkeley unaccounted for. after the fire one of them, vanessa, her family is pleading with anyone with information about her to contact authorities and have authorities contact them. from the u.c. berkeley campus, eric thomas, abc7 news. >> interesting information. we hope for the best for those

warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto.
