An official briefed on the probe tells ABC News that a refrigerator is being eyed as the "possible" point of origin in the Oakland Ghost Ship warehouse fire that killed at least 36 people.

Alameda County officials have identified 10 additional Ghost Ship warehouse fire victims and the death toll remains at 36. Officials say only one of the victims found is unidentified. So far, 26 families have been notified and they have nine tentative identifications.


Officials said they are now 90 percent done with search and recovery of debris and evidence. Authorities believe they will be able to clear and remove all debris removal by midnight; however some structural sections need to be removed. Crews are beginning the work of knocking down walls of the warehouse. The walls will fall internally in places where crews have searched and believe there are no victims.

If you are trying to locate a loved one, or need information call 510-382-3000.
