The death toll from a fire at warehouse crowded with dance party revelers rose to 36 Monday as fire officials announced they had suspended work because the structure was at risk of collapsing.

Alameda County deputy sheriff Tya Modeste said 11 of the 36 bodies recovered so far at the site in Oakland, California have been positively identified. Previously, the toll had stood at 33.
