Recovery teams expect to be on the scene for at least 48 hours, maybe longer, Kelly said at a 6 p.m. press conference. Excavators will be used to punch holes into the building and cadaver dogs and robots could be brought in, he said.

The building’s collapse has only made the building more of a maze, as rubble, wires, beams and wood litter the warehouse’s interior, Kelly said.

The Oakland police department is coordinating with the city and the fire department to build an investigation into the history of the building and to ascertain the fire’s origin.
