5:32 am
all cash lanes open. one is closed on the left, complicating it a little bit on that side. 5:31. only on nbc, emotionally charged and near tears, the leaseholder of the warehouse is speaking out this morning. derick almena spoke on the "today" show as it was airing on the east coast. >> kris, he was lashing out at accusations that he's at fault here. >> reporter: he admitted he and his wife were living here at the warehouse with their children and he knew it was illegal. when he was pressed on the questions about building codes and property and responsibility, that's when he got very upset. >> i don't even want to -- i don't want to talk about me. i don't want to talk about property. this is profit? the loss of mass lives? i'm a father.

away. we know 36 victims were found inside this warehouse and about 75% of the structure has been searched by crews, and crews use that large crane you mentioned to get in and out of the warehouse yesterday. there was a planned power outage near 31st avenue and international boulevard because the crane when it was brought in could possibly hit power lines. they had to turn off power in the area affecting hundreds of customers. one o of the biggest challenges was keeping the evidence intact while removing the victims. we talked about the emotional toll on them. the alameda county sheriff's office saying a mother received a text message in her daughter saying, quote, i love you mom, i'm going to die. >> this is a type of incident that will take a toll on you. >> reporter: here are pictures from inside that oakland warehouse following the fire. you have the firefighters standing in that damage in the

5:38 am
several times. he described the stairs as very hard to navigate and dangerous. >> documents show that complaints against that oakland warehouse date back to 1999. that includes two as recently as last month as we reported. the complaints cite high amounts of garbage outside and an illegal interior building structure. one resident says rules included no candles and no smoking due to concerns specifically about a fire. >> if your ideal situation is living in a warehouse rather than the street, you'll live in the warehouse. >> while the focus has been on the building manager, the owner hasn't been seen publicly since the fire. it is 5:38 right now. happening today, oakland mayor libby schaaf is announcing new efforts to boost the city's arts

5:47 am
pay phone in a western country and the concern over the tip is relatively low. the caller indicated something would occur at the metro red line station in universal city today. officials say the threat was very specific, but the credibility still needs to be vetted out. >> this could be real, it could be a hoax. but we must remain calm but richmond-san rafael bridge leapt. we're asking the public to take the precautions they would take on any other day. city officials and undercover deputies will be riding the transit stims today. >> if you thought your water tasted a little musty. the earth think overtones are from the blending of water supplies. they say the water is still safe to drink. it happens annually during maintenance that stirs up sediment in the pipes. they suggest you run your water to a few minutes just to clear everything out on there. not a bad suggestion. >> no kidding. maybe bottled today.
