8:05 am
trying to preserve evidence in case something suspicious happened, malicious intent because it is such a new scene, that is the first thing that they do. if you remember back to the ghost ship fire a couple of weeks ago, that is the same procedure there until they know what they are dealing with, is they want to treat it as a crime scene to continue the investigation. fire investigators are due on scene shortly. we are hoping to get more information from the battalion chief in the next 5 to 10 minutes and maybe more information from the alameda county sheriff's office to find out more about the victim, find out if there was a 911 phone call or anything suspicious about the fire. we will work on this all morning long and bring the latest details. frank and allie? >> is there anyone displaced by the fire, nearby residences that people can't go back in their home because of the fire damage or water damage? >> we talked about this
