collapsed, because it was too thick. >> yeah. >> and the blaze, the blaze was so fast that it burnt him. >> it is upsetting, because you hate to lose anybody anyway, but something so drastic that you were a part of it, you keep trying to replay like if things could have been done differently and what if. >> reporter: there were five people who made it out nelly, who you heard of the other man, and they rescued the homeowner by breaking the bars of the outside bedroom window and pulled him out. he is in the 70s and in the hospital being treated for smoke inhalation, and everyone else out on their own, and take a picture out here live, this is to the left of the house that caught fire and to the right. you can see how close the home to the right is, and it suffered some roof damage, but the fact that house didn't burn down shows you how well a job that oakland fire department did in keeping this house fire

according to the paperwork, she alleges that a classmate sexually assaulted her in 2019 and pulling her into a classroom and groping her before she was able to get away. this is talking about other sexual assault cases involving other girls at the school. she claims that not enough was done the ensure her safety. i did talk to the superintendent who said that the incident was reported to berkeley pd, but it is unclear what happened after there. he said that a majority to incidents happened off campus. after word of the lawsuit got out, we are showing you the images of those alleged assaulters on the girl's bathroom wall with the message in the wall saying stay safe ladies, and that has been scrubbed, but of course, it is adding to the tensions on campus, waez aas we take you ba
live in the courtroom area, and there is a sit-in, and there is a march as well to have their voices heard. reporting live, pete suratos, bay area news. >> thank you, pete. happening now, in some bay area neighborhoods, strong winds that took down trees and knocked out the power. this is video out of castro valley. a massive tree knocked down power lines in higher and forest avenues and still people in that area without power this morning. in san francisco, somebody left their window open on the 44th window of the millennium tower and that is when the glass went crashing down, and people arrived to find the area closed. >> they had police with the bikes saying that everything is closed off and roped off anded starbucks was closed. >> and this is also causing

wind of up to 199 miles per hour. we will see if that is actually going to be a record, but we are seeing still some wind advisories in effect for the hills and the north bay and this is going to continue through tomorrow morning, and we could still see some wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour today but starting to calm down especially in the valleys. we will talk about this and what is ahead for the rest of the week coming up in the full microclimate forecast. >> we look forward to it, kari. >> the alameda county deputies are revealing more details of a shooting in hayward. it happened around 10:30 outside of a home in medford avenue. one man pulled out a gun and both men were shot in the struggle. neither injury is said to be life-threatening. in san jose, interruption to the light rail train after a train struck a pedestrian and killed a person. this happened around 5:45 this
