5:06 am
resolution that would require countries to pass laws to try to prevent their citizens from joining terrorist groups. >> the threat of foreign terrorist fighters is very real. and we have to start with the uncomfortable reality that security measures alone will not solve this problem. >> reporter: the national counter-terrorism center estimates 15,000 foreign fighters have traveled to the middle east to join groups like isis. marlie hall, cbs news, new york. some of this week's u.s. airstrikes targeted a little known group known as khorasan. it's an al qaeda splinter group a mix of jihaddies from afghanistan, yemen, and other he areas. this group poses a more direct threat to the united states. >> the intelligence reports indicated that the khorasan group was in the final stages of plans to execute major attacks against western targets and the u.s. homeland. >> the u.s. says khorasan

5:11 am
south bay. two men have been arrested. it's a story you saw first here on kpix five. mark sayer joins us live wi more on this new break in t new developments that luxury car theft ring. two men were arrested. mark sayre joins us live with more on this break in the case. reporter: here at tracks auto in san mateo, at least 40 sets of car keys and two vehicles were stolen right off
5:12 am
the lot. another nearby dealership was targeted as well and now, two people are under arrest. the san mateo police served search warrants in oakland and arrested these two men identified as 18-year-old [ non- english language ] and 19-year- old [ indiscernible ] they have tied them to several thefts in san mateo. police are looking to see if they could be connected to a series of other car thefts in san jose, santa clara and belmont. as we first told you on monday, this surveillance video caught the criminals in action in san jose and san jose police are investigating. >> they are not concerned with getting caught. so they are probably pros. they probably have done this more than once and again maybe the idea that maybe they are not from the area.
5:13 am
>> reporter: they steal the keys and find out which key opens which car and drive off: police in belmont say they have now recovered six of eight cars from a dealership there and a similar theft is being investigated. police are trying to determine if these auto thefts are related. is it an auto theft ring? but one thing they cannot answer, why they steal the cars and just leave them abandoned on the side of the road for police to discover them? they don't have the answer to that question. live in san mateo bridge, i'm mark sayre, kpix 5. thank you. bakersfield is becoming the home of bear sightings after five were seen yesterday. the department of fish and wildlife says the bears have something to do with it. they were tranquilized and returned to the wild. officials say as long as the
5:14 am
area is in a drought, residents will continue to see bears searching for food and water. so how would you react if you ordered a pizza and the delivery guy were cops? >> that's what happened to a man in portland, oregon. officers say the delivery guy got into a car crash, so the officers actually covered for him and by the way, the pizza guy is okay. that's nice of the cops. >> i should say. look at that. they even smiled for a little photo. it's wet outside. even a few sprinkles out the door cause spinouts. another one reported in emeryville and i'm not sure if this is late running roadwork or what the deal is but this earlier roadwork at least, maybe they are still clearing, it is causing an unusual delay right now heading to the dublin interchange. so this is a live look actually all those headlights, that is the commute direction westbound 580. but check out our sensors. it's really slow now. we are seeing the usual slow
5:15 am
traffic out of the altamont pass because of the commute. but this is unusually heavy for this time of the morning coming into pleasanton. the roadwork from hacienda to san ramon, we have been trying to call caltrans to figure out what's going on. golden gate bridge no delay here out of san leandro into san francisco. you can see the wet pavement, though. at the bay bridge toll plaza, all good so far heading into san francisco. emergency vehicles traveling eastbound 80 they must be heading to the scene of this accident. we saw a number of fire crews and ambulances. this is one of those solo spinouts. it is counter-commute in emeryville eastbound 80 at powell street. but we're hearing that multiple lanes are blocked and we're also seeing some slowing on our sensors. westbound traffic looks okay on that approach if you are heading to the bay bridge but eastbound there's obviously a problem coming around the berkeley curve. here's a live look at 880 in oakland. no delay at the coliseum. the roadwork is cleared in both
5:16 am
directions. if you want to stay away from the wet roads, try bart. so far everything is on time systemwide. that is your latest "kcbs" drive to work. we have some changes in the forecast. the wet weather is not over yet, huh, lawrence? >> no. we're just getting going in fact. looks like the rainy season is starting early this year. we have drizzle out the door right now so the roads are darn. you may need the windshield wiper from time to time this morning. we'll see clouds rolling in. a storm system in california, eureka seeing showers up into crescent city and the system going to be sliding slowly down the coastline throughout the day today. so as we head toward the afternoon increasing clouds, chance of showers in the north bay by this evening. now, looks like some more rain is on the way for the rest of the bay area overnight tonight.
5:17 am
we are catching the southern edge of the storm. maybe we get three-quarters inch in the wettest spots for tomorrow. so still not a bad soaker around the bay area. 80s and 90s though into the central valley. the further north you go the better chance you have of getting some rain. timing this out a little bit, looks like as we head in toward the evening hours the front finally makes its way into parts of the north bay and overnight slides down across the rest of the bay area so tomorrow morning the commute jakob a little tricky out there. clouds part tomorrow afternoon. looks like the next couple of days the rainy season kicking into gear early. we may see lingering showers friday. saturday and sunday, return to more sunshine. mild weather into the next week. but yeah, a nice soaker coming our way, some places tomorrow wet early tomorrow morning.
5:18 am
>> about an inch? three-quarters inch is a good soaker for this time of year. if you didn't know it's national singles week. >> i had no idea. a group of singles is volunteering to build homes for those in need. roberta gonzales joins us live from san carlos. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i am live in san carlos. i found a brand-new place called [ indiscernible ] store for habitat for humanity. this is a twofold story. first off, who knew that this is national singles week across america? now who knew? the founder, mark owen who flew in from seattle just for this interview this morning. hi, mark. >> hey, how are you doing? >> reporter: i'm doing great but i learn something new every day. today i found out that it's national singles week. talk to me about that. >> it is. singles always are looking for reasons to get together so, you know, why not do it now? >> reporter: why not? instead of just like hooking up at a gym or at a bar. we're hooking up at reese store where we're asking people to
5:19 am
come in and donate all year long all year round and what happens is, the items go to habitat for humanity. and that's why we have chris here. tell me, chris, you are working hand in hand with mark on what? >> so today we have a bunch of volunteers to help us stock the reese store move stuff around put things in a great spot so we can sell these items and the proceeds go back to benefiting habitat for humanity greater san francisco. and it allows us to build homes. >> and today we are going to be building a home at lunchtime. >> we are. so we have the crew coming out to our construction site located in san francisco to help us build 28 single-family homes and we are so excited to have such dedicated volunteers that can come out and swing a hammer, have a great time but also meet one another. i mean, what better way to do that? >> mark, so what other activities do you have that people can get together if you don't know how to swing a hammer? >> everything from parties -- we are in australia on a big trip. >> reporter: australia in.
5:20 am
>> yeah. >> reporter: great. if you want to know more about events & adventures on national singles week or habitat for humanity, what a great cause, we have made it easy, visit us online at and go to "links and numbers." reporting from reese store in san carlos, roberta gonzales, kpix 5. it is 5:20 right now. an unexpected blessing at a church in chicago. new at 5:30 how a recent real estate deal is helping some church members out. i'm dennis o'donnell. the a's try to stay in the top wild card spot and if it's september, it's the giants and dodgers and tempers flare. the fight was a draw. the game was not. coming up. >> we want to know what's cool about your school? email your nominations to us at we may come and feature your school on the show. we'll be right back. first, here's this morning's bay area jobs report with steven greenburg. reporter: employers don't usually tell a candidate why they did not get the job. here's what some hr managers say are the most common
5:21 am
mistakes candidates make and how to fix them. amazon has over 550 jobs in the bay area. amazon's head of hiring says that candidates often try to please interviewers by saying they will do anything or they are open to trying. but that's often the wrong thing to say. employers need assurance that you can do a particular job. successful candidates make it clear that the job they're interviewing for is a perfect one and the best match for their skills. one hr manager does a great deal of hiring in san francisco told me that preparing for an interview, candidates should practice out loud saying three specific examples of their experience that align to the open job. at san francisco-based kimpton hotels, a growing hotel chain that has openings at 11 different properties in the bay area, their head of hr says it's often about personality, more than experience. candidates who are creative and demonstrate a passion for the employer's business are more likely to be told, you got the job. that's a good approach for any job you seek. i'm steven greenburg, kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,

5:24 am
good morning, everyone. although the giants hang by a mathematical thread, any chance of winning the national league west came to an end last night in los angeles. puig and baumgarner have had issues with each other all season so when baumgarner hit puig on the foot in the 1st
5:25 am
inning, tempers boiled over. players restrained, benches clear, a lot of smoke, not much fire. matt kemp had fire in his bat two-run shot. 3-0 dodgers. baumgarner's quest for win 19 not looking so good. fourth homer of the year sets a franchise record for pitchers and long balls. 3-2 dodgers. that's all they would get. justin turner put it away with a solo shot in the 8th. his second homer of the game and the dodgers win 4-2. so the important number right now is the wild card. the pirates hold the top spot by one game. winner hosts the wild card game one week from today. sonny gray struck out 12 angels in seven innings last night. this wasn't one of them. gordon beckham gone solo shot anaheim led 2-0. same score 8th inning. the a's load the bases but steven vogt popped out to end the threat. 2-0 the final. the 7th time that they have
5:26 am
been shut out since august 1. the a's are tied with the royals in the wild card standings and earliest now the a's can clinch a spot in the wild card is tomorrow. one other note on the giants. angel pagan centerfielder and leadoff man is done for the year. he will have back surgery i l.a. tomorrow. i'm dennis o'donnell, see you tonight. dog owners beware, animal control officials warn you after what they say was discovered at a bay area dog park. we have the details. >> reporter: two men under arrest for car dealership burglaries on the peninsula. could it be related to a larger crime ring throughout the bay area? i'll have the details just ahead. ,,,,,,,,

citing what san francisco firefighters call a crisis of confidence in their chief, joanne hayes-white. reporter: the letter is signed by leaders of every faction of the union and the history of the san francisco fire department that has never happened. it calls for the department to return to levels of excellence which, i don't want, can only happen with a -- which, quote, can only happen with a change in our current leadership. >> are you resign? >> i'm not at this point thinking about resigning. >> reporter: one of the complaints, dangerous ambulance response times, more than an hour in some cases, because of a lack of equipment and personnel. the chief and mayor say things are getting better after more rigs were put on the street. and more emts were hired. >> have confidence in the chief and we are working very hard particularly on this ambulance response time. >> do you think there's something more to this than just ambulances? >> there are discipline cases that i think frankly people are not happy with doing things
5:32 am
differently than my predecessors would have done but it's the right thing to do in this day and age. >> reporter: white's job is in jeopardy. but that letter is calling for an interim leadership team to be in place asap. live in san francisco, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> hayes-white has been fire chief in san francisco more than 10 years, longer than anyone else who has had that job. governor brown asking world leaders to put a price on carbon emissions. he addressed the panel at the u.n. climate summit in new york yesterday. they plan to spend the cap and trade program to include vehicle fuels. critics worry this could mean higher gas prices for all of us. well, it is 5:32. let's get another check on the weather. a little bit of rain. >> yeah. we have some drizzle this morning, yeah, and it looks like maybe some rain headed here later on this evening which could be a nice sight as we are going to see clouds rolling back in. in fact, we have some mostly cloudy skies if you are headed out the door and it's very damp in spots but that's because of the drizzle. but look at this. we have a real cold front off
5:33 am
the coastline. so far, most of that rain is hung up just a little bit to the north but it's cloudy and very mild this morning. these temperatures running in the 60s all around the bay area. even 67 degrees in san francisco. by the afternoon, we'll see increasing clouds, 70s around the bay. maybe some low 80s if we see a couple of sunny breaks in the valleys and 60s along the coastline. we'll have more on the rain coming up. right now let's check on the slick roads with elizabeth. >> we have seen a handful of spinouts and we had some roadwork causing delays so kind of busy for 5:30 a.m. if you are heading out the door. here's a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. kind of a typical thing going on here. you have seen the delays filling in in the cash lanes. they have not activated the metering lights yet so the middle labors, the fastrak ones, still look -- the middle lanes, the fastrak ones, still look good. once you get past the bay bridge toll plaza, everything is good from the incline toward treasure island. we just got word from chp they hope to re-open lanes here
5:34 am
approaching powell any moment. it's counter-commute. there is a spinout that caused a delay. it was blocking multiple lanes. but again they hope to clear it right about now is what they told us. live look outside. you can see how slick it is if you are heading into the dublin- pleasanton area. the drive time is slow and i got to say it started early the commute because we had some roadwork that just kind of maybe took a little while to clear caused some slowdowns heading to the dublin interchange. it was hacienda to foothill san ramon road. you can see the delays out of the livermore valley. that's "kcbs traffic." frank and michelle, back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. golden gate transit workers could go on strike in the next few days. last week workers from a machinist union staged a one- day strike over claims of unfair labor practices. there are 13 unions representing the district workers. right now it's unclear which will go on strike. the strike can halt bus and ferry service and slow commuters who rely on the golden gate bridge to get into the city. developing now, two men
5:35 am
have been arrested for allegedly stealing cars on the peninsula that could help investigators solve a bigger luxury car theft ring. mark sayre is live in san mateo with more on this story. >> reporter: in el camino real in san mateo, 40 sets of car keys and two vehicles were stolen. now detectives are trying to find out if similar crimes in the bay area are related. reporter: 18-year-old moufassa haulcy and 19-year-old mark questions banks, both of oakland, are now in jail. police say the men are responsible for felony thefts at two-car dealerships in the city of san mateo. could the two teenagers also be part of this organized group of car thieves that stole more than 20 cars over the weekend? >> they used the fobs to locate which cars are flashing. >> reporter: police in the bay area are comparing notes to see if the cases are related. as kpix 5 first reported monday night, the formula 1 dealership in san jose captured the
5:36 am
thieves on surveillance video. 7 men broke in and went straight for the key box. san jose police are now investigating. >> they are not concerned with getting caught. so these crooks are probably, you know, pros. they probably have done this more than once. and again, maybe the idea that maybe they're not from the area? >> reporter: the thieves click on the key fobs, the lights flicker and the thieves then start taking a bunch of cars. also hit in the similar way were a nearby mercedes-benz dealership on stevens creek in santa clara and autobahn mercedes in belmont but many of the cars have now been found. so why would the thieves goes to all the trouble to steal all these luxury vehicles then abandon them on the road? police say that is a question they don't have an answer to. reporting live in san mateo, i'm mark sayre, kpix 5. 5:36. contra costa county is getting some help with protecting victims of domestic violence. the county is one of four
