Prosecutor says murder charge possible in fire

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -
   Prosecutors say they are investigating the warehouse fire that killed 36 people, and murder charges are possible.
   Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said Monday her office has just started its probe and has not yet determined whether a crime even occurred. But she said charges could range from murder to involuntary manslaughter.
   Investigators with the district attorney's office are making sure crews removing debris don't jeopardize any evidence in a potential criminal investigation.
   The fire erupted during a dance party late Friday night. It's unclear how it started.
