the fire chief said she never experienced anything like this fire in her decade's long career. here's how a neighbor described. >> i pulled him out and there was a lot of stuff in the way and the flames were too much. too much smoke and i had had to [bleep]. i had to let him and i haven't sewn him. and there is flames shooting out for 30 minutes. so. i don't know. i hope, i hope he's okay. >> claudia is live in oakland. claudia, have crews got inside of the building yet? >> reporter: yes, it is slow going because the building is unstable and authorities brought in big lights to had help them as the sun begins to set in the west within the hour.
work is continuing meticulously. right now the death toll is officially at nine. but the coronnor is preparing for dozens of falitalities and 25- 40 people were not affected for. they were attending the oakland ghost ship and the roof collapsed and many people were trapped. the only way to travel from the second floor to the first was a stair. >> and many people are saying that the investigation will take time because of the damage and right now, their focus is on a grim recovery effort here. >> what do we know about p the building, claudia? >> reporter: it was described as a artist warehouse and laid out as a maze. you can see the pictures of the
oakland ghost ship it could have been confusing for someone it navigate the corridors and artist studio and the building was filled with furniture and mannequin and lamps and no working sprinkles. and neighbors had complained to the city about trash and debris. >> i had received recent complaints about lights in the property and that is ongoing. >> permits would be needed for people to live in the building and they were not issued. >> reporter: there are reports that the family was live nothing the warehouse and the father is unaccounted for. it is not a crime scene. but a special task forces assigned to the incident. >> inside of the building there were a lot of things wrong.
no way of calling the fire department and no fire alarms? >> reporter: there were no working smoke alarms or sprinkler system. that's what i am told by authorities. gaerngs this investigation is just getting underway. >> it is devastating and no smoke alarm and hard to report a fire until it is too late and as you mentioned they were living illegally as squatters? >> that sounds like it could be the case. but we don't know for sure. officials are not confirming that. people are come here for the underground dance parties, that's what we are hearing. on the other side of the country , a massive fire in cam bridge, massachusetts. flames engulfing at least seven
buildings that started with a coup and he will it has grown. it say monster fire. it was a nine alarm fire and blazing and seven buildings in all caught on fire. the heavy smoke seen for miles. a police spokesman said injuries have been reported but none serious. displaced families are staying at a near by youth center and unclear how or where the fire began. we'll bring you the latest on this fire. >> and now to politics. president-elect donald trump doesn't seem to be backing down after he risked angerring china and spoke to it a leader of taiwan. and in 1979, the united states agreed to honor the policy. and cut diplos with with the island. since then no u.s. president or president-elect has spoken to a leader in taiwan.
that was until yesterday when president eect donald trump accepted a congratulations call from the taiwan leader. china has filed a formal complaint and urging the u.s. to handle the issue cautiously and properly. brian is live in trump tower. hi, brian. >> reporter: good evening, the most sensitive topic is not trade, but it is taiwan when is comes to u.s./china relation. it is an issue 60 years in a making and no president or president-elect call canned a taiwan leader since 1979. and that call rattled a complicated relationship with china. and china filing the formal complaint through the foreign minister. we urge the relevant parties in the u.s. to a boyd by the
commitment to one china policy. and avoid unnecessary interfering of the u.s. relation says. the taiwanez leader call canned to offer congratulations and spoke between the ties of taiwan and the united states. it is it a potential major signal. taiwan refers to historic conversation and the two spoke for roughly ten minutes about establishing a close relationship. trump is it not know what all of the hoopla was b. it was the polite to do. interesting how the u.s. sells taiwan billions of military
equipment but i should thought accept a congratulatory call. >> the dnc said donald trump is too incompetent threatens our national security or doing it deliberate because he wants to build hotels in taiwan. that is assertion that trump denies. and kelli nan conway knew the ramifications when he had had the phone call. >>'s brief conference there after a warehouse fire in oakland, california that killed nine people. >> that is nine that we know b. and as i stated earlier, we expect the death toll from this event to it rise. so we are working with families right now that are missing loved
ones. and we have seen these events take place throughout the country over the year and it is it a very trying time for them. we are working with those family and we have counsel can -- counseling and support set up. i can't tell you how great the red cross was to help us out. we are working hard and update you at 6:00. in the meantime we'll be here doing our job and dealing with families. >> [inaudible] we'll make multiple points of entrow to get in to the spots we can't get in now. there is twisted debris. it is hard to describe like a maze. there is wires and beams and metal and wood, it's all, it's all fallen on top of each other.
places that we can't get into. we are talking about bring nothing dogs to help us out and remote technology to get in the spots that are really tight. there is a lot of work. we'll use technology to our advantage and make sure we get to every spot in the building. [inaudible] the shoring and the engineering people are work nothing there as we are inside. and they don't stop what they are doing. reenforcing. and moving as they slowly enter into the structure. there is several people. fire personnel are experts in this field and do this every day. and we have our search and rescue people who are experts in getting in tight spaces. they deal with urban rescue and
we have all of the experts to get the job done but it is time consuming. >> the beside were covered [inaudible] >> the floor is totalled. >> [inaudible] >> yeah, we are going to roach in from the west side of the building. and so bar tracks here. we are going to bring in debris box and take that debris and put it in box and breach holes in the building and we have to worry with about the structure integrity so that nothing collapse and so there is a lot going on. [inaudible] it is hard. the building, how it is now. is notes inially how it was at the time, right.
and so those windows have been broken out on purpose to battle the fire. a part of the recovery efforts is what you see now. [inaudible] >> no, there is not at this time. and so we are actually literally taking finger prints and rushing those finger prints to the central identification bureau and doing it the mint minute we role fringer prints and identify them and contacting families and that is very you know, systemically. and respectfully to the families. we'll go stloe. and as soon saz we get a victim out and identifying through finger frints. if they are available. not everyone has finger prints on file. and that is where it is
important to have the connection with the families when we start getting into that. >> you have information on the size? >> no. i don't. the fire chief explained earlier that there were two entrances and exits to the building and maybe there was a third entrance that somebody had cut a hole through the wall that they used to get through buildings. that is not something that everyone would know about. there is two known entrance and exits. most people would know that. >> one is in the front and one in the back. >> just to confirm, four of the nine totals, correct. >> nine total, yes. that we identified so far and there is all of that debris and
floors have collapsed and the roof collapsed on the top of the second floor and collapsed in the first floor. and we would imagine more victims in that wreckage and so that's why we are using technology and people to get in those spots. at least a couple of dozen upon. ality least a couple of dozen people we need to figure out their whereabouts. >> have you identified the ones that you brought out. >> not yet. we are running finger prints. >> is there is a central location. >> we posted that. >> so there you have the fire chief from the oakland, california fire department offering grim news. they have found nine people died. four bodies were recoveried and

>> the united states foreign policy in the middle east is governed through a country of 7 million people. a region of 350 million all turn it on a country of 7 million. does that make sense? >> ellison who was the first muslim elected to congress said that was selected and taken out of context. they call his words deeply disturbing. >> south carolina democratic jamie harrison and new hampshire chairman ray buckley. the vote doesn't happen until february whichlies plenty of time for candidates to jump in and that will be taking place in february. >> all right. thank you very much, kristin.

(vo) with no surprise overages, you can use your data worry free and even carry over the data you don't use. and right now get four lines and 20 gigs for only $40 per line. and, just for the holidays,
>> a growing fight over the everywhere. >> and illegal immigrants. >> we have value and principles relating to inclusion does not. they have declared themselves sanctuary in deportation. while the definition is loose. the common thread is don't ask or tell about legal status. and republicans have eight years of federal immigration law may be coming to an end upon in a trump administration. what happens in texas portends what may happen soon nation wide. >> the thing i have done, i used my powers to with hold funds that are declaring themselves to

they are making sure it is not further blooms. and this is infrastructure and the profits will more than offset the tax credits to the invisitors. it is not just going to take billions of dollars. it would be trillions in new spending that is real money. the whopping number of debt reflects years of overspending and spanning multiple white house administrations. president-elect donald trump and republicans have vowed to it reduce the debate. will they be able to find a way without hurting the economy? we have the story from the washington bureau. >> reporter: nothing in current law is going to stop the 20 trillion national debt. and nothing in law will stop 25
or 30 trillion. and in the turn of the century, the federal government owed five and half trillion. and now nearly 20 trillion. >> the debt is highest it has been for any president in office other than president trumman and expected to grow faster than the economy forever. >> in that year, they add 590 billion to the national debt and the government took in 3.3 in tax accident. how did the government spend that money. half to government health care and social security. health care costs 1.1 trillion. and that is medicare and medicaid. government spent on social security and disability insurance. and a trillion on everything else that the programs for low income american and benefits for
retired worker and transportation and education and federal affair and housing. and interest cost 250 billion last year alone. budget experts say 2016 campaign promises would drive the debt higher. >> chatter of tax cut and infrastructure and military spending and don't touch medicare and social security. it doesn't add up. mr. trump inherited a budget program from president obama. >> and consequences is higher are interest payments to those lending the government money and lower productivity and less flexibility to react to a y severe recession. health care costs would affect the debt and entitlement programs are the country's largest liabilities and making
them more sustainable means americans paying less for them or taking more from the government. >> the husband of a woman held captive after being abducted near her home speaking out about his wife's terrifying ordeal. hear what he has to say. >> and a brazilian community in mourning as the body the of soccer players killed in a plane crash returned to the home stadium. that is and the outrage and the string of human mistakes that may have led to it the deadly crash.

>> she was bound with a chain around her waist and left hand was in a vehicle chained to system. >> papini said the cantors were two hispanic women. we don't know if it was random. and he has no reason to doubt her story. >> both of the suspects spoke in spanish the majority of the time of her captivity. and they concealed their faces in an attempt to hide identities from her. >> and the question of money. first a random and turned in a six figure reward offered by a party. and go follow-upped me -- fund me. her husband told abc that rumors of a hoax and attempt to make
moneyy is disgusting and exhausting. >> wow. thank you. the funeral procession carrying fidel castro's ashes. thousands waves flags. and tomorrow is the funeral that would end the nine day period of national mourning and a day tour. >> it smashed mixed reaction in the world. some remembering him as a rev lougzary and others a decade of obsession. rain and tears in southern brazil. mourners honor the soccer players in the tragic plane crash. the tragedy may have been prevented. 20000 people filling the tiny stadium to it say final fare wells to the athletes.

doesn't appear to plan on a conventional presidency. from his speeches to his tweet and cabinet choices, will mr. trump redefine the office and image as president to suit his personality. >> reporter: chalk up another unconventional first for the president-elect. his announcement for defense secretary was a surprise to his own staff. >> so i gave up a little secret. my people over there are probably saying, you weren't supposed to do that. >> this is the way donald trump communicates. he doesn't have a press conference. >> reporter: even though obama was a single president in race and heritage. he discharged his doubts with deverance to white house tra itdition and historians call it
wearing the suit. >> the individual takes on the mental of high office and it changes their approach and style and that does happen in most cases. but if there were an exception, it is going to it be donald trump. >> indeed from the visits from the aspiring cabinet member and release of a video with text graphic and outlining first 100 day and late night tweets and this president-elect will do things, many things very differently. >> they say it is not presidential to call up massive leaders of business. it is presidential. if it is not presidential, that is okay. >> can the republic survive a president that is not acting presidential. >> what is presidential?
don't be emotional and evasive and dance on ellen or blow a saxophone on the arsenio hall show. what is presidential. >> reporter: his behavior is in kfrnt ways to flout tradition. and if he wears a coat in toil in the oval office or dialling up leaders that the u.s. doesn't talk to will be a blepd of the calculated and improvised. a high school athlete in masses mass is helping others this holiday season. hay lower whites raising to collect 25000 pairses of shoes by may. >> it's a privilege that i get to wear shoes every day. and i took it for granted. and i did research and i wanted to be involved in.
she's working for soles for souls. and collected 1000 pair of shoe and they will go to it people who need them in developing country. good for her. >> wizarding world of harry potter to the big apple. we'll explain coming up next. as soon as i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot, i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis.
eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
