The deadly Oakland warehouse inferno that took the lives of 36 people during a party Friday night may have been caused by a refrigerator.
Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern told reporters on Tuesday that investigators with the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) have identified a refrigerator as possibly being where the fire sparked.
A video taken inside the enclave just hours before the tragedy, shows a few partygoers dancing and laughing among each other in a darkened room.
The dark and grainy video appeared to back up stories from survivors who have previously told how they had to fight for a way out of the burning warehouse down a narrow staircase.
One of the people who escaped told authorities there were flames coming from the refrigerator.
