find elevated levels. half a dozen people had to be hospitalized, two were treated at the scene. the call came in last night. we believe the victims were flight attendants from sing ga pore air. we don't know the source of where the gas was coming from. initially authorities thought maybe the victims caught some sort of virus and exhibited f lu-like symptoms and that may be the reason why nothing was done. we've put in several cars from different answers but have not heard back. marriott corporate offices based in maryland are expected to make some sort of a statement soon, and we will, of course, bring that to you. but as of now, there's no no indication of where the source of the carbon monoxide was coming from. tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. turning to alameda. our ktvu news crew went to the scene of a power outage and found a bigger and more

city of alameda -- alameda hospital, including alameda hospital. they had backup generators, so they were able to continue to serve their patient as the time. nobody was hurt at this l ocation. it could have been far worse. when i talked to the power company employee, he said there was a tremendous amount of voltage in that line. >> it's a 12,000-volt line. it will do that. >> that's a major line. how much is 12,000 volts? >> well, your house meter is 1250, mullet pie -- multiply that by 100. and that's how much it is. >> reporter: now, the fire department was out here and it was so hot they sprayed down the area around where the power line fell on the asphalt, and --wa is it? 7:00 now? so two and a half hours later, it's still steaming. take a look at -- it's starting to cool down a little bit. we had a shot of the coin earlier.
there was steam. you might still be able to see it rising through the cone. we'll be trying to talk to some people who live around here so they canty us firsthand what it was like at 4:30 in the morning when you had a big 12,000-power line fall to the ground. back to you. >> thank you. a man suspected of pulling a gun on alameda county sheriff deputies during a standoff is in jail. around midnight, deputies rushed to an apartment on maddox and foothill near hayward for a domestic violence call. as deputies arrived, the is -- the suspect reportedly pulled out a gun. that's when one after opened fire. a neighbor and his wife say they heard deputies screaming, "come on out with your hands up" military times. >> the deputy fired at the suspect. the suspect jumped out of a third-story window and fled on into the. >> the suspect was later c
