OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The death toll is expected to rise as crews using buckets and shovels slowly make their way through the Oakland, California, warehouse where a fire claimed at least 33 lives Friday night.

Officials believe others are still missing.
The blaze roared through the artist collective during a dance party.
The building had been carved into artist studios, and former denizens say it was also an illegal home for a rotating cast of a dozen or more people.
