we have cleared approximately 70% of the building. >> would you say based on the areas yet to be searched your fear is the death toll will go higher? >> at this point we still have families at the victims center and their family members unaccounted for so we unfortunately believe that the fire fatality will go higher. >> what can you tell us about the process of providing more information to these families? i know that you asked for dna, the possible dental records. >> right. so, the coroner wants -- once we locate along with the sheriff's office in the building, there's a multi-prong approach to verify their identification including just as you said, the dna and fingerprinting, because a lot of these young members of our community had i.d. on them, but were not able to use that as the justification and assume what we
find is reality. >> chief, a lot of people of course are mystified how this fire spread so quickly, the proximity of the fire department, the fact that you were on the scene within three minutes. how do you explain how it spread so rapidly? >> the incredible fire load in the building. again we don't know exactly how the fire started, we're still at the area of origin, we haven't been able to get to that point to do a thorough investigation. but as all the members have been reporting already, the large warehouse building was completely filled with combustibles. and once those got started it was very, very, rapid fire spread that made for a tremendously scary situation for firefighters entering and people trying to get out. >> and chief, quickly, i know this weren't supposed to be residential uses for that building, yet some of the people who lived there said it was somewhat of a well known secret.
was it known to your department and were there fears that something like this might happen in that building? >> i will let other members of the city speak to that. i do know that the fire station that's a block away knows the building, whether or not they were ever able to determine that it was residential use on top of the original permitted use, and occupancy use of warehouse, is unknown to me. >> oakland fire chief, i know you have a busy day. i thank you very much for your time. >> you're welcome. to an incident in washington, d.c., a man armed with an assault rifle opening fire inside a popular pizzeria. it's why he chose that restaurant that has become the . hallie jackson has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: hi there, tamron. police say the suspect, a 28-year-old from north carolina, tells them he came to this

fake onhein conspiracy theory suggesting the local pizzeria at the center of a child sex slave ring organized by hillary clinton and her former campaign manager. in an effort to crack down on fake news redit banned on its site. >> people are brave behind their key board, writing hateful messages but you don't think that someone's going to do something about it. >> reporter: since the fake story went viral, the owner of the d.c. pizzeria says he received hundreds of death threats. >> promoting false and reckless conspiracy theories come with consequences, and i hope that those that are involved with fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today and to stop right away. >> reporter: police say at this point they don't believe anybody else other than welch was involved. tamron. >> thank you very much. president-elect donald trump

really hurting. so my mom took me to the doctor. >> reporter: do you remember the conversation you had with the doctor? >> i had the ct scan. he asked me questions, looked in my ears. checked my hearing, my eyes, and next thing i know, i'm at cvs getting vike kinn. >> reporter: vicodin a highly addictive opioid painkiller like the one spencer was described. >> i was predescribed percocet. hit really hard carrying the football and by mack bas killing me. >> reporter: it didn't just block his pain. >> i liked the feeling but the relief not for the pain for the mental effect that it brought to me. >> reporter: both athletes were soon hooked. how many prescriptions were written for you? >> one prescription with three refills. >> reporter: when that ran out, what happened? >> i will to find a dealer that would sell them to me. >> reporter: jess was also prescribed vicodin after shoulder surgery. she says she used it a few times before, but never in this
amount. once the prescription ran out, she started stealing from her grandmother's medicine cabinet. >> i would just take them and replace them with ibuprofen and she wouldn't notice. >> reporter: jess, john and spencer are not alone. in a cdc survey published this year, one in six students said they had taken prescription painkillers without a prescription. >> it's supposed to be for pain relief. unfortunately we see all too often the developing brain becoming seduced by this feeling. the release of dopamine in the brain, the feel-good center of the brain. >> reporter: john was spinning upwards of $200 a day on the pills. his parents caught him stealing money. >> i think that's what made him realize, oh, i don't have this unlimited funds. i better start finding what i can get high on that's cheap. >> reporter: the solution -- heroin. a fraction of the price of a prescription painkiller. the son who had never used drugs

they had adopted john when he was a baby. >> we know now that wheewhat th do. >> reporter: they were never warned of the addiction of a drug. >> this is what the doctor prescribed. this is what we're going to take. >> reporter: founder of newport academy has seen dozens of teens go from athlete to addict with one prescription. >> at that age, to introduce such a powerful prescription narcotic drug to their system is only going to have damaging effects, and we know that the younger someone starts using drugs, the more likely they are to develop an addiction. >> reporter: john knows that one prescription changed his life. >> i really, really was really angry that this had to happen to me. this kind of manifested itself through something that i loved so much and it was really everything to me, and through that i got this addiction.
>> reporter: these teens are now sober and living a full life. do you feel like in some ways you're the lucky ones? >> i would say, if we stick to this path and keep doing, continue to do what we're doing, that we're definitely the lucky ones. >> i couldn't ask for anything more. i'm so grateful for where i am today. >> i'm happy. i've got good relationships. i have trust with me family. my family trust me today. it's good. it's really good. >> john is two years sober, wants to be a drug counselor, jess still swims every day and also two years sober and spencer is six months sober. really, for parents, ask questions. these kids are too young to be addicted to these, to this medicine. >> and to give a prescription with three refills. >> wow. >> for a 15-year-old. >> formula for tub. >> a great report, jenna. thank you so much. over to dylan. >> hey, guys, just ahead, one of our absolute favorites is here. kelly clarkson. she's going to perform. -- excuse me -- live
