7:00 am
good morning. welcome to mornings on 2. thanks for joining us. i am claudine wong it has been a busy morning. we will have your weather coming up in just a moment. we start with breaking news. in emeryville near the open border. a building under construction caught fire overnight. you can see close to the freeway. this is only 3800 block of san pablo avenue. just all 580. near the bart station. those flames could be seen from the freeway. pretty spectacular. >> we were coming in on 24. you can see this big orange ball shortly before 5 am.
7:01 am
it was an awesome site. spectacular of the freeway. is certainly got our attention. no injuries to report. kristin and -- captain has been at the scene. he joins us with the details.>> reporter: crews are still working to put the fire out. we will show you the action going on in emeryville. they are still crews pouring water on the fire. a great deal of steam coming out which is a good sign. we have a report from firefighters who were on the side a couple moments ago. basalt the flames. this maybe five minutes ago. this whole fire really started around 5 am. for their still to be flames at this hour at 7 am that is quite a long time for the fire to burn. we have video to show you. you both talked about it. a massive orange fireball that deal the sky.
7:02 am
above the emeryville open area. fire crews rushing to the area. this fire 125 alarms. they had many crews here. we solved several ladder trucks trying to do with they called a surround and drown. since this was an unoccupied structure they were able to surround it. poor as much water on it is possible. they did not feel like they have to make entry. the good news we have heard no injuries reported as a result of the fire. what we're looking for a out of this is no injuries. the fire apparently did spread to at least one other building. unclear if it was under construction or if it was unoccupied. there were neighborhood evacuations. we did talk to neighbors who described what they saw when they look outside at 5 am. >> neighbors described the scene massive fireballs filling the
7:03 am
sky. they describe -- some neighbors said there was in fact a mandatory evacuation. when those neighbors came outside they saw embers floating. there were a lot of -- a great deal of embers. a great deal of wind. embers were flying all over the place. and they describe the giant orange fireball in the sky. >> it was really hot around here. evidently -- it was last year as well. >> last year they thought it was fireworks. i don't think so this time. >> neighbors shot video outside their homes. they were able to take video. you can see how spectacular this fire was. you have heard one neighbors say there had been a fire previously. there was some speculation the previous fire which happened in
7:04 am
july 2016 might have been caused by fireworks. that was speculation. we have video of that fire as well from 2016. that fire also burned in the exact same structure. those images are similar. that fire when 26 alarms. today's fire going to five alarms. we have a lot of questions to ask of firefighters in the area to find out if they have determined a cause. if they can figure out what caused the fire. so far the good news is that no injuries. at this point it seems as the firefighters have it contained. not entirely extinguished. it does appear to be contained to this building. it was an apartment under construction. more than 100 units under construction here in emeryville. the second time the same structure has burned. it is pretty unbelievable. it looks like they are getting
7:05 am
ahead of it. you are waiting for a press briefing. we will check in in a bit. as christian mission is the second time in less than a year that same building has burned. it was last year on july 6 when a fire broke out. that was 2:45 in the morning. embers landed in neighborhoods a couple miles away. this morning they were concerned about embers moving in -- in july 50 people had to be evacuated. nearby homes were damaged. they concluded that fire was likely caused by young people. perhaps fireworks on the fifth floor. nobody was ever caught. around 4 july and after getting new permits working with the banks. and insurance and investors. the rebuilding got underway. this building was supposed to be completed sometime at the end of this year. last month a developer talk to
7:06 am
the business times is that the building was back on track to be open for residents. by the fall. which was my mom's behind schedule. -- nine months behind schedule. >> was reading this interview -- holiday development. he was saying it was so hard those first 72 hours to get back on track and think about rebuilding. 105 units. 20,000 ft.2 commercial space as well. and now this>> i heard one of the witnesses that was evacuated said firefighters set you guys have to come out. they jokingly said yes we know the drill. >> very scary. wind was an issue. we talked to chp earlier. they were talking about having to shut down the freeway. and then slowing people down as the fire and smoke drifted across 580. if you smell the smoke and see any -- just be aware.

7:33 am
it is contained. we have the majority of the fire under control. we have some townhouses that are currently actively being fought. we have exposures on the interior side. those fires are being fought -- both by oakland fire resources and alameda county. >> is a very active fire effort to make sure this is extinguished >> exactly. the majority of the fire has been extinguished. we have some townhouses that are still being fought. we have interior teams that are working inside the exposure. and we have roof operations. >> if we could talk about the competition factors. this building was under construction. a lot of flammable materials and open space.>> exactly. when we got here the other complication was there was a
7:34 am
lot of wind. we had other buildings not too far from here that because of embers were also caught fire. we have to set up another group of engine companies and truck to go to that area and fight the fire in that area. that was one of the complications. via been to this building before july 5 of last year. under the same circumstances. this time it went to a five alarm fire. with request from different cities. via been working with alameda county. that's the same effort we had when we came here before. >> but that other fire have helped you? you are familiar with the situation in the resources. but that have helped you guys? >> i think that helping companies in the area -- they were able to get here quickly and request additional resources. immediately we went from a single alarm to a five alarm fire.
7:35 am
that the alarm was called by our first company on scene. when i arrived on scene the fire was pretty significant. the entire building was engulfed. we had reports of fires in other parts of the city. we have to address those. we set up ladders on each corner of the building. to surround and drown. significant amount of heat in the building. we're going to be here probably for 24 hours making sure we maintain fire watch. >> reporter: there appear to be damage to one building east of this. i'm not sure if it is part of the same project. with the contained to one building or was there some spreading of the fire to neighboring building? >> there was some spreading of the fire to condominiums. we have three that were impacted by the fire. those are the buildings currently we have companies inside. and topside.
7:36 am
they are operating interior and exterior to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to folder -- to further exposures. hook there were evacuations as well. of people allowed back into their homes? >> there were people who were occupied in the adaline apartments. they were evacuated temporarily. those buildings were impacted by the fire. they are free to go back into their homes. the actual condominiums that were impacted were under construction. there were no occupants. >> reporter: is there a fire investigation underway since there is a second fire in the same location -- a month ago? >> alameda county fire will have their investigator. they were here in july 2006. they started the investigation then. they will continue the investigation. we will have 80 up respond and assist as well.>> reporter:
7:37 am
this would be a continuation of the same investigation>> i'm not sure if they will continue the investigation or start a new one.>> reporter: thank you for the update. i appreciate it. that's the latest that we have on the fire here. you can see that there was fire alarms. the effort still underway to try to extinguish the fire. as you might imagine this was a very large fire. both of you mentioned seeing it on your way in. as solid as well. it was a giant orange fireball. the neighbors brought up -- we talked with a spokesperson about neighbors being evacuated. when they first came out around 5 am. those windy conditions were blowing embers all over the place. they said some small fires nearby. there is a grassy field to the south.
7:38 am
there was some small spot fires in there as well. that's part of the concern for firefighters. just a moment ago alameda county had their drone up. that has landed. they are using it earlier to try to get an idea on what the fire look like from above. you can imagine how bad might help figure out where the fire is still burning. where they need to focus resources. as you heard this likely going to be a 24 hour effort is firefighters worked to try to contain control and eventually extinguished the fire here on the border of emeryville in oakland. >> that crane is still upright. is that a big issue? there are firefighters inside the interior of that building. >> it sounds like they are not inside this building. from what i got was that they are surrounded the building. they are in neighboring buildings. they are not going inside this building.
7:39 am
they don't want to put anybody in position where they could be in danger. they are going to surround the structure and put in as much water as they can. that crane is precarious. neighbors who were here said that crane -- they could hear it clicking and popping. they heard it give way and come down. that certainly is part of the structural insecurity. the structural defect in the danger inside the building at this time. as you heard before it is going to be a long day for firefighters to try to make this building as safe as possible so they can make injury. the next key -- the investigation to figure out how it started. we're looking at two fires in the same location in a matter of months. live outside the fire in emeryville. we want to go to president. trump. he is delivering the commencement speech at liberty
7:40 am
university in virginia. let's listen in. >> i have seen firsthand how the system is broken. a small group of failed promises. who think they know everything. and understand everyone. they want to tell everybody else how to live in what to do and how to think. but you are not going to let other people tell you what you believe. especially when you know you are right. and those of you graduating here today who have given half 1 million hours of charity last year alone. unbelievable. amount of work and charity -- a few universities or colleges can claim anything close. we don't need a lecture from washington.

8:00 am
580. the five alarm fire could be seen from miles away. >> that's right, and this is not the first time that building has burned. just in the past year. christian captain is live at the scene. he's going to bring us the latest in a few minutes. and a worldwide hack attack. malware spreads to dozens of countries and tens of thousands of companies. we're talking about that. that included fedex, a look inside the cause of the attack and what's being done now to secure those systems and computers here on the home front and a night game for the giants turned into an early morning game for the diehard, extra innings. but with one swing of the bat, buster posey plays super man in the 17th inning. >> if you didn't stay up to tend, we can't blame you. but we'll have the latest on that. a tough stretch for giants fans. but you should feel good. it's always okay if you stay up all night and it ends well. >> and you win. >> that's what bochie said
8:01 am
after the game. the manager said if we lost this game, oh my god. buster caught 17 innings. i bet he doesn't play today. but nice win. >> they will be back out there today. it's going to be cool and breezy. if you're going to see them play, go giants. we do have that to contend with. bring the jacket. we'll also have sunshine. bring along the ball cap. giving you a view at san francisco. we're starting out with blue skies and plenty of sunshine. from the coast, around the bay, and inland today, just a few clouds out there. a little patchy fog but really that wind is knocking out most and giving under the circumstances great visibility this morning. here's a shot for you here, san francisco now, 51 degrees. santa rosa at 52. actually santa rosa in the upper 40s. but all ready rebounding. mid 50s in oakland. 50 in livermore. and san jose right now, 53. with that said, temperatures are cooler for most than where we started yesterday morning. down by 4 in livermore. down by 3 in oakland. down by 3 in napa.
8:02 am
here's a look outside. some of the winds picked up yesterday afternoon. they'll pick up again this afternoon. right now, a little breezy in many spots. we have 5, 10, 15 miles per hour. the chp issued advisories for bridges early on. expect it to be breezy. half-moon bay reporting gusts at 17 miles per hour right now. mountain view, here's a look at what to expect for the day ahead. as we get into lunch time, low 60s, mid 60s, a few upper 60s expected out there for the second part of the day. so temperature's not bad. it's the breeze. it's going to be a strong one. especially along the coastline for the afternoon. perhaps inside the bay. 62 in san francisco. 65 in oakland. upper 60s concord. north bay, 70 for napa and our south bay locations. 68 expected for san jose. not a lot of change in store for your mother's day sunday. in the extended forecast. we're going to cool it down more and introduce the possibility of scattered showers. i'll have a look at that coming up. all right rosemary, thank you for that. new this morning we want to
8:03 am
update you on that massive five alarm fire right off 580. >> that fire started on san pablo avenue at a building under construction. now the building is just off 580. look at these pictures. this is what people were seeing from the freeway. flames did spread to nearby condos. there were also evacuations. but fortunately no one was hurt. this is if you're wondering, yes, the same building that caught fire last july in a six alarm fire. that fire was blamed on fire works. >> and about 30 minutes ago, firefighters told us the majority of the fire is contained but they'll be at the scene for a good 24 hours not only investigating but a number of hot spots and things to secure. christian captain has been at the scene in emeryville all morning long and joins us now with another update. christian? >> yeah, frankings claudine, you could not have stated it better. that this is an active fire fighting effort. if you look here, you can see the resources here at the
8:04 am
scene. we'll give you a sense. we're at mcarthur boulevard where pablo and adaline come together. this building under construction burned for a second time. we have video of what it looked like this morning. neighbors telling us it was a spectacular site. massive orange fire ball burning in the sky. one of the problems with the fire is it was windy last night. it flew embers around the area. setting small spot fires. the size of this fire was simply massive. five alarms drawing in dozens and dozens of firefighters. ladder trucks spraying water from above. trying to first contain this fire to try to prevent it from spreading to nearby buildings. this fire by the way, so hot that it cracked windows on buildings across the street. because the heat was just simply so intense. firefighters are telling us that this is going to be a long day of work ahead of them. to try to extinguish this fire once and for all.
8:05 am
>> the majority of the fire has all ready been extinguished. but we do have a couple townhouses that are currently still, you know, being fought. we have interior teams that are working both inside the exposures and we have roof operations. >> and you can see that there's twisted fence, burnt metal in the area. structural elements, what's left of a crane that was in the area. neighbors describe to me hearing the crane creaking, groaning, and ultimately collapsing. the heat weakening the metal and eventually allowing that crane simply to fall down. claudine, frank, we mentioned this before that this is the second time this same building has burned. so oakland firefighters confirming for me that they will have a fire investigator out here on scene to try to determine exactly what caused this fire and if there's any
8:06 am
possible connection to that same fire in july 2016. you know christian, even if it's not connected. i know in the last four, they said we think it was maybe someone playing with fire works. on the fifth floor. and it may cause them to rethink if that's really what happens. i know they never arrested anyone. it's ironic that the same building within less than a year would go up in flames like that. >> certainly, and one of the questions that we have, we're trying to look for anybody associated with the building to find out if after that first fire they put in some type of security system. so perhaps there could even be security surveillance video of this fire starting. if it was in fact started by someone or if it was accidental. surely after the first fire there may have been some effort then to try to have some kind of surveillance system in place to see if something like this happens again. unfortunately, something has happened again. clearly a lot of questions about how this second fire started. >> surveillance would be very
8:07 am
interesting. thanks so much for the update christian. as christian mentioned, this is the second time in less than a year that the same building burned. it was last year july 6th you may remember it was 2:45 in the morning over night as well. embers from that fire also a problem just like in this morning's fire. the embers landed in neighborhoods a couple miles away. there were evacuations. 50 people had to be evacuated. and nearby homes were damaged. >> and evacuations again today. the fire department concluded that that fire was likely caused by as christian mentioned young people playing with fire works. it was around the 4th of july on the fifth floor. nobody was ever caught on prosecuted. after getting new permits and working with the banks, insurance, and investors, the rebuilding just got back under way. last month the developer, rick holiday talked to the business times and said the building was back on track to be open and ready for residents by the fall of this year. which was nine months behind schedule. now, a number of you have been posting pictures of the moment you saw the flames break out.
8:08 am
including ourselves as we -- i didn't post anything. but i could certainly see it as we were going down 24. and alameda county fire posting this video, you know, right around 5:00, 5:30 when that fire ball erupted. >> the flames were so visible from miles away. it really had people wondering. devon posted this and said massive, must have been burning. i hope everyone is safe. that's what i thought. i hope everyone is out. >> you could see this big orange orb. something was on fire. i thought it was on the left side near mcarthur bart station. >> and that #happenedagain. people identifying very quickly that this was an issue. this person was in the building next door and look at those pictures. i mean -- >> i've never quite seen a fire that intense. we caught it coming into work
8:09 am
when it was at its peek there. another fire in emeryville. i mentioned this earlier. but they were asked to evacuate. and they told firefighters, we know the drill. we've done this before. >> we'll check in on that story all morning long. certainly a lot of questions and we're watching all those developments. we do also have more breaking news for you. because we're hearing there's an arrest in connection to the contra kosta county car fire case. the fire protection district telling ktvu they're working on a news release now detailing what happened. and they may also hold a news conference later today. there have been seven car fires this week alone. a rav 4 went up in flames. a chevy suburban in lafayette. some of the same firefighters ahead of the walnut creek blaze responding to that lafayette fire. they were 11 minutes apart. and right off highway 24.
8:10 am
there were two car fires early thursday morning. also in brentwood. they happened ten minutes apart. a mile from each other. one fire left a burned out shell of a chevy pickup truck. but check out this neighborhood surveillance camera. it recorded a shadowy figure walking in that area just minutes before the fire started. and finally, two more vehicles also caught fire just after 2:00 yesterday morning, a sedan first exploded into a fire ball in the walnut creek area. in 15 minutes a car was torched in lafayette. as you might imagine this string of car fires put residents on edge. >> it's pretty scary. because if not for the vigilance of the neighbor that called, i was sound asleep. this would have probably spread to my house and god knows what would have happened then. >> well authorities say there were more car fires before this week. catching the serial arsonist has been a top priority. investors with contra kosta fire protection say they've been working nonstop getting
8:11 am
help from outside agencies and our news room has just confirmed that an arrest has been made. so we're continuing to follow more information but again, we are confirming that there has been an arrest made in these cases. a very busy day. new this morning, firefighters in oakland rescued a child trapped in a burning home. this happened before the other big fire. the fire started around 2:00 this morning. 74th avenue and lockwood street. firefighters arrived on the scene. they say a family told them there was a child trapped inside that home there. the child found in the back of the home was taken to the hospital. and this morning is in serious condition. firefighters able to put the fire out in 20 minutes and the cause of that fire is still under investigation. an investigation is under way in roanoke park after a man died after being tazed by police at a hotel. this happened after 3:15 yesterday afternoon at the budget inn on redwood drive. police were called to the hotel after getting a report of a man acting strangely. when they arrived, police say the man was incoherent and
8:12 am
appeared to be in an alderred state. they realized the man had an outstanding warrant. they did try to arrest him. but they say he resisted. is sonoma county sheriff's office and the sonoma county district attorney's office are both investigating. law enforcement officers are mourning the death of a deputy killed in a crash. the deputy was driving home from afternoon over night shift at the santa rita jail when a charter bus slammed into his car from behind after it stalled on the freeway. he was headed east on 580 near grant line road in the altamont pass. the bus was carrying tesla employees from fremont to stockton. it's not key what caused the crash. but the chp says it's possible the driver may have been blinded by the sun. the sheriff's department says the deputy's death is a loss for the entire department. a case of tuberculosis, the treatment options available to those who may have been

8:31 am
i'm frank. >> good morning to you. i'm claudine wong. let's start off with a look at your weather. it's cool temperatures today. it looks like they're going to stick around. >> yes, we're not going to see a lot of change. when it comes to our temperatures, essentially we're going to go a little cooler. that's in the extended forecast. for your bay area weekend, mostly sunny skies to start the day, just a few clouds out there. not a lot of fog to speak of. that wind is bringing great visibility. and this is a gorgeous shot at the golden gate bridge. notice i said wind. the wind is with us as well. that's not going away either. 52 degrees in santa rosa. mid 50s in oakland. 50 livermore and san jose. some of us started in the 40s. some of us are trailing behind a little bit. but we're beginning to see a nice rebound with the sun shining and temperatures cooler than yesterday by a few degrees for most. right now any where from 2 to 3 degrees. you may not notice. but you'll notice if it's outside your door is that wind. getting out it's going to feel
8:32 am
quite brisk. northwest breeze at 16. novato gusting to 23. oklahoma, not bad. 9 miles per hour. the winds picked up yesterday afternoon. expect them to pick up again this afternoon. hayward at 126789 half-moon bay, gusts at 15 to 20 miles per hour right now. going to see the giants game today, 61 degrees at game time. the gusts possibly stronger than that. in and around the park, quite windy for the afternoon. low 60s for the san francisco area today. mid to upper 60s around the bay. upper 60s to near 70 degrees for our inland communities. so a very mild day. a nice day. as long as the wind doesn't come through and ruin it for you. in the extend forecast, mother's day looks similar to today. bigger changes with the possibility of wet weather coming back to the bay area. i'll explain that coming up.
8:33 am
at 8:32, we want to get back to the scene of the massive five alarm fire near the emeryville oakland border. >> the fire started near 5:00 this morning. it could be seen for miles. this is san pablo avenue. the building is under construction just off 580. flames were red ising to nearby condos. embers were flying. there were evacuations. no one was hurt. if you're wondering about the building. yes, it's the same one that caught fire last july. that was a six alarm fire. that fire was blamed on fire works. an hour ago firefighters telling us the majority of the fire is contained but they'll be at the scene for a good 24 hours mopping up and investigating as well. ktvu's christian captain has been at the scene since 5:30 this morning. he joins us with more. >> reporter: good morning, first the good news, firefighters still reporting no injuries as a result of this fire. as you said, largely contained.
8:34 am
we'll move back a little bit. give you a live look at the fire. you can see that the smoke now has turned from that dark suity smoke. that means it's an active fire. to a lot of white smoke. that means we're getting a lot of steam. if we could back up a little bit. you could make out the fact that there's aerial rigs dumping water on to that fire. so there's stillwater actively being put on this fire to try to extinguish it and look for hot spots. we've seen drone operators from alameda county here assisting firefighters to determine where those hot spots are. where those active flames are. where they should be directing their water. we have video of what it looked like early the morning. it was an incredible site for anybody in the area. you will know exactly what we're talking about. a massive orange fire ball filling the sky here at the oakland emeryville border area. this massive fire starting sometime around 5:00 this morning. at this point, the cause is
8:35 am
still undetermined. that major fire setting fire to a nearby building. so it was not just contained to one building this time. this building under construction. this again the second time that this building has burned. firefighters when they arrived on scene said they're dealing with again a massive five alarm fire. and with the complicating factor of heavy winds this morning made fighting the fire that much more difficult. >> when we got here, the other complication is that there was a lot of wind. so we had other buildings not too far from here a block or two away. that because of embers, it also caught fire. we have to set up another group of engine companies and truck companies to go to that area and fight fires in that area. and you can see from our live picture just how close this fire is to this vacant field here to the south. so you can imagine as embers were flying, falling into this
8:36 am
field, setting small spot fires in this area. setting fire to another nearby building. clearly one of the issues they were trying to do is trying to contain this fire. you can see just how hot that fire burned. the twisted metal up there, the remnants of a crane that failed in the heat of this fire. the cause of the fire still under investigation now. we've been talking about the fact that this is the second fire to strike in this location. the first one back in july. now a second one. so clearly it raises cause for concern. firefighters tell me that there are fire investigators on scene ready to make entry and determine exactly what caused this fire as soon as it's safe for them to do that. >> christian, let's talk about traffic. you have that emeryville, that mall that's not too far from there. and the east bay bridge shopping centers, maybe 100- yards from there they have nordstroms rack and the home depot and that kind of thing. i imagine negotiating the streets down there it's going to be a little difficult.
8:37 am
>> absolutely. the whole shopping district that you're talking about is right town there. i think you can see the sign there. you mentioned nordstrom rack. the pack and save is there. there's a home depot nearby. a lot of shopping in this area. this is a major avenue through the area. to give you a sense of where we are,adaline, mcarthur, san pablo, in that area. moments before we went live, we had a woman who drove in through this area. you can see they've moved a cal trans truck to try to block traffic. because moments before we went on air a woman started to drive through unaware the street was closed down, there's a significant traffic impact to people in the area as fire crews still work here to try to do what they can to put this fire out once and for all. but as you said before, frank, this likely will be a relatively lengthy effort, as long as 24 hours here on scene
8:38 am
to make sure the fire is properly extinguished. >> there are big questions. it's happened again. i wonder if they'll rethink what they thought was the cause of the first fire. good work, christian. police in sonoma are asking for help to find a missing 83-year- old man who suffers from dementia. officers say this man on the left went for a bike ride yesterday afternoon but never returned home. he was last seen at 4:00. police say he didn't have his cell phone with him at the time. he's 6-2, 175-pounds. he had blue jeans on and a black bike helmet riding a black and silver cruiser style bike. if you see this man or have any information, you're urged to give the police a call. cyber security teams in several countries are working to restore computer systems that roar part of a massive cyber attack. more than 75 countries were hit yesterday. it's believed to be the biggest cyber attack of its kind. the attack infected computers
8:39 am
with ransom ware and demanded a payment to unlock files. russia appears to be the hardest hit. the cyber attack also affected britain's hospital system. they were forced to close emergency rooms and turn away patients because the computer system was down. the united states was also hit. but that attack was not as widespread as we saw in other countries. >> these hackers were able to exploit a vulnerability that the nsa had identified that should have been patched but they might not have been fast enough. >> security experts say the unknown hackers exploited a weakness in older versions of microsoft window, microsoft fixed the issue back in march. but some companies might not have updated their systems. microsoft says it will now fix the problem for free for everyone. well, some faculty and staff at uc berkeley are being advised to under go screening for tb after coming into contact with someone who contracted that disease. the active case of tb discovered off campus at a campus shared service fourth
8:40 am
street near interstate 80. the university would not say if it's a student or staff member effected. but the school contacted everyone who came in contact with that person and has now offered screening to those who may have been exposed. that testing by the way begins on monday. police are showing off half a million dollars in stolen cosmetics that were seized from a string of drugstore robberies in alameda county. investigators found that merchandise in a storage unit after identifying two people who were allegedly buying the stolen cosmetics. suspects rosa jimenez and her boyfriend rodriguez were arrested on suspicion of receiving the stolen goods. some cosmetics has stickers from cvs or walgreens. coming up, a child trapped inside a home during an early morning fire in the east bay, the efforts by fire crews to rescue them out of that blaze. and thinking about robin williams and his final moments on the big screen. we'll preview the last movie in

8:45 am
love it. love it. love it. next to that, we have the life print printer. this is one of those little mobile printers. so again, an app on your phone. print it directly from your phone. print the picture out. and hover over it. you know in harry potter where the photos start to move. do you see that. this photo is moving. and if you send one of these to your mom. no matter where she is in the country, you can send her a picture from her phone that she can print out on her printer and it moves around like that. >> i've never seen that before. >> every year on my bucket list, playing an instrument is up there. really high up there. i've never taken the time to do it. this is the one smart piano. it lights up. the keyboard lights up and you learn how to play the piano. and so i learned how to do let it go, you know, in a weekend. i was very, very proud of myself. my daughter is like mom, you have to stop playing that song,
8:46 am
from frozen. she's like i'm so over that. >> subscription boxes, always a big hit. and there are so many out there. this is mommy mailbox. it starts around $30 a month. this is great for new moms. it comes with a cure ated box. >> it's the gift that keeps giving. >> it is. and there are so many great ones out there. if you're concerned about your mom's safety. young mom, new mom, mom who traveled for work. i do this for my parents. they travel. and i worry about them. this is a personal panic button. if they get into button, they push the button, locate them via gps. all kinds of safety built in. and this is a wearable ring. it's called the nimb ring. they push a button, it alerts. >> and it looks nice. >> it's pretty. >> so you're not worried about
8:47 am
the way it maybe looks on your hand. >> it looks kind of cool and modular. but that's your panic button. >> and then we have purses. >> fanny packs of the future. >> it's hard to say they're cool. but they're back. with a nod for style. and these come with a touch of tech built in. they have a charger for all of your devices and then, yeah, it's a bit of a stretch but i like the idea that the fanny pack is back. you need to go hands free. music festivals. >> okay it's an option. frank. you can get me the piano or the hovercraft. >> i'm thinking the fanny pack is in order. >> price range really quickly.
8:48 am
>> 300, 130, 270ish, starts at 33, revlar is 60. and the bags are 85 and up. >> so we have a full range. i've written about everything and a ton more on my website at techish.com. or u.s.a. today in the columnist session. rosemary, which gift would you like if you could choose? >> she all ready has one. >> oh yeah. she has a fanny pack. you would choose the fanny pack. >> i might. i also love the idea of the piano. >> yes, the piano is cool. >> do you want me to get that for you. >> sure. >> i'll take care of the weather. giving you a view outside our doors this morning if you're thinking about what are we doing for mother's day weekend. it's going to be a dry one. it's going to be a pretty one. but it's going to be a cool, breezy one. so getting outside, bring along the extra layers, maybe even the windbreaker. here's a look at storm tracker
8:49 am
2 where we continue to remain in this trough like pattern. you can see it ride over the west. this isn't going to budge. not for the next few days and eventually it's going to bring us cooler weather and a chance for scattered showers. that comes on tuesday. not for your weekend. we'll have the wind though. and right now any where from 5 to 10 to 15 miles per hour reported at times. chp had issued a wind advisory for some of our bridges out there. so you're going to find it if you do have an early morning commute, we're looking at winds along the coastline to be strong. half-moon bay, gusting to 22 last i checked. and it's probably not going to let up. it's actually going to grow more intense as we get into the afternoon. and this is just a model. but a good indication that almost everybody is going to have that west/northwest breeze once again for the afternoon. temperatures right now, 55 degrees in oakland. we lost our reading in san francisco. but also in the low to mid 50s. around the bay, 50s as well. 54 in hayward. 55 in redwood city.
8:50 am
for the south bay, 53 degrees in san jose. north bay, 52 in santa rosa. for your penninsula, a few more numbers here. good morning san mateo, 54 to start your day. here's a look at the afternoon highs. these numbers barely budged. 70 degrees expected for santa rosa. the inner east bay, upper 60s to near 70. 70 degrees expected for brentwood. 65 in oakland. along the penninsula, 67 redwood city. and for the south bay, upper 60s for you. 68 san jose. a look at your extended forecast as i mentioned, not a lot of change, sunday, monday, low 60s at the coast. mid 60s around the bay. upper 60s inland. and then we get a bigger drop in temperatures that come our way on tuesday. around the bay, we can't get much cooler. but the inland cities will see a notable drop. even the possibility of a few
8:51 am
scattered showers. wednesday we rebound some. but all in all that extended forecast, average, a little cool for this time of the year. >> there you go. guess who left without picking up the fanny pack. so finders keepers. >> i'm kidding. >> we'll give it back. if we can catch her. all right. thanks rosemary. the final movie featuring the talents of robin williams debuts in theaters this weekend. biscuits. biscuits. please, please, please, nothing else matters. >> there you go. it's called absolutely everything. and as you know, robin williams is the voice of the dog there. the film is about a man who gets the power to do everything he wants. he recorded his part in december 2013. and later that summer passed away taking his own life. the film by the way is rated r. a warning is issued as the south bay expansion gets closer

8:54 am
welcome back. we continue breaking news of the massive fire in emeryville. and now another fire just about a block and a half away. these are live pictures you can see black smoke coming from the roof of that house. we don't know obviously at this point if this is all related. we know that the firefighters have been out there for several hours. they were concerned about embers spreading. they were obviously close by when this fire happened. and so our crew is headed over there trying to get more information now. it looks like they're on the roof and trying to get in front of that. >> still very active. christian will have a live report at the top of the hour. all right. time is 8:54. the bay area housing market is one of the most expensive in the country. i think we all know that. and it's not slowing down any time soon. thanks in part to a whole new generation of home buyers.
8:55 am
they had been sitting on the housing sideline. not ready to commit to the responsibility of a monster mortgage. but a new generation of first time home buyers is finally diving in. >> the millennials. they're coming out in droves right now. >> millennials are in their late 20s to mid 30s. they've left that second stay at mom and dad's house. their student debt is under control. and they're tired of renting without financial benefits. they're house hunting in force in the east bay. >> with the millennials it started about a year ago. >> this remax broker noticed the change. >> the millennials are very different. they've got a lot of technology on hand. they're ready at a moment's notice. they're good at making decisions quickly. a lot of them have high powered jobs where they're good at making decisions quickly. >> first time home buyers, up from a low of 31% in 2011. and 38% in 2015.
8:56 am
experts believe some of the first timers come from this new generation of tech savvy home shoppers. their needs are all about convenience. a home close to transportation. a good walking score. and a bevy of good restaurants nearby. but bigger than that -- >> i would say good sell reception -- cell reception and good internet is definite. >> remax social media man. >> they want accessibility. very quickly created a facebook page. >> the days of posting a sign and passing out brochures long gone, if you want to target a millennial, you better be social, facebook, pinterest, instagrammings or forget it. >> we'll identify people, where they're likely to be from, what interest they may have which will suit the property. and we'll proactively target these people through social media and display that property to them so they can see it again 24 hours a day. >> it's great for homeowners an
8:57 am
all ready hot housing market is about to get hotter. >> the millennials are coming in and their first house is 8,000 to 900,000. >> what's that going to do to the market? >> push the prices up. >> and it is. >> boy is it ever. i remember the first house i bought in the early 90s was 145,000 in new hampshire. i thought i put 5 grand down. and did a lot of praying. and now people are coming in with huge gobs of money. it's a brave new world. >> it's a difficult market to get into. 8:57 on the clock. a final salute to a fallen deputy. we'll have more on the life of an alameda county sheriff deputy who died in a freeway accident. a bay area prosecutor under fire. up next a vote of no confidence for the contra kosta county da. more on that, when we return.

morning. a really nice day out there. a little cool. we'll get the forecast from rosemary in just a moment. welcome to mornings on 2. it's saturday may 13th. >> happy weekend everyone. we'll get that forecast which is spectacular, mother's day tomorrow, of course. but first a busy news day too. early this morning, that massive fire erupting at a construction site along the oakland emeryville border. still an active scene now. around 450 home and businesses are in that area. and without power right now as well. that's an update. we've got kristen captain out there kind of checking on both fires. we also know this is not the first time that the building has caught fire. it is the second time in just less than a year. so a lot of questions surrounding that. and christian will have more on that in a few minutes. we're talking about this worldwide hack attack. malware spread to dozens of countries and tens of thousands

9:02 am
especially for allergy sufferers. something to be aware of for today. the winds picked up yesterday. they'll pick up again today. 56 santa rosa right now. 54 in san francisco. and most of us now in the 50s. we're still a little bit cooler than where we started yesterday morning. inland cities, as well as the east bay, shore land. and the penninsula. down by 3 degrees in areas around redwood city and mountain view. here's a look at the wind. sustained at 17. gusting to 25 in santa rosa .so it's picked up over the last half hour to hour or so. nevada reporting 16. oakland gusts at 18 miles per hour. so the winds let up in the over night hours. but now they're coming back and they're going to be with us and increasing as we get into the afternoon. half-moon bay, 18 miles per hour gusts reported there. san francisco stained at 10. if you're going to see the giants play this afternoon, cool and breezy. 61 degrees. west winds at 20.
9:03 am
gusting to 25 and 30. expect coming in and out of the ball park for it to be quite breezy and windy. 62 for san francisco. the afternoon high today. 65 in oakland. upper 60s concord. 70 degrees expected for antioch. tomorrow for your mother's day, a near repeat. temperatures will again fall off as we get into the business week and a chance for a few scattered showers. i'll have a look at the extended forecast for you coming up. all right rosemary. thank you. new this morning we want to get you back to the scene of the massive fire near the emeryville oakland border. >> on san pablo avenue, this is a building that was under construction. i want to show you video sent to us by a viewer. the building, just off interstate i-80. you can see how distracting and how massive that site was for people driving along going what was happening there. as you can see, there was concern over the embers that would come on the freeway. and you can see like even the
9:04 am
smoke there. >> that's 580. we were on 24. a good mile plus away. and it was big from there. i can't imagine driving right by it. >> the flames are spreading to nearby condos. that was an issue. there were evacuations. fortunately no one was hurt. you talk about that building though, this is deja vu, last july, that same building also caught fire, six alarms, that fire was blamed on fire works. >> that was july 6th. around the 4th of july, earlier this month firefighters told us the majority of the fire is contained but they'll be at the scene for the next 24 hours. christian was at the scene of the fire but then another fire started just about a block away. and he's out in front of that home now. christian. >> this gives you a sense of how fluid the situation is. you can see firefighters here. we're two blocks away from the initial fire that burned at 5:00 this morning. a police officer from oakland was just walking through the
9:05 am
area talking to neighbors in the area one neighbor asked him directly do you think an ember from this morning's fire caused this. that oakland police officer said yes. it seems that this is another fire that was started by that initial fire that burned this morning. so let's go ahead and show you video of that initial fire this morning and talk about that just to give you the latest information. crews still working on that fire. so as you can imagine, this is taxing their resources. now they're fighting two separate fires that are in relatively close proximity to one another. the first fire starting at 5:00 this morning. a huge orange fire ball in the morning sky. causing major damage to a building under construction. this is the second time that that building under construction has burned. the last time was january 6th. 2016. so at this point, there are still a lot of questions. we had a chance to talk with the chief of police this morning who told me there will be an extensive investigation to get to the bottom of the cause of the fire this morning
9:06 am
in emeryville. >> it will be investigated. it lot be a multiagency investigation. involving atf, a team that comes from around the country of experts in arson investigation. and we will be working closely with them as we did with the last fire, investigating the source. >> coming back to our live picture, you can see again, oakland firefighters working on this fire on 36th street here in oakland. this fire almost assuredly connected to that fire this morning. a lot of work going on here. a lot of work still under way at that initial fire because that fire according to fire officials is still not out. it's contained. but it's not out. so that's still drawing a great deal of resources. we'll continue to stay here and go back and forth between these two fires to monitor any new developments. but we were talking before about how easy this fire can spread. ryan and i were talking about this a moment ago.
9:07 am
you can see here, it doesn't take much you can look for it quickly. these are embers from that fire that started this morning. but it's pretty easy to see how far the embers spread. how they could have landed on a nearby roof and caused this fire. certainly a word of caution. anybody in the area, be sure that you monitor your home to make sure that there isn't an ember somewhere on that home. and again, there's also a major traffic impact in the area. this initial fire still under way to put that fire out. so the intersection of adeline, mcarthur, san pablo, still shut down. it's best to avoid the area all together. >> good advice. we'll check in later. christian live in emeryville. we have breaking news. an arrest made in connection to the contra kosta county car fire case. the fire protection district announced it's going to hold a news briefing about that arrest at 11:00 this morning.
9:08 am
now, we are hearing that the suspect was caught around midnight in vanesha. we're trying to confirm details right now. we know there have been seven car fires this week alone. on monday, there was a toyota rav 4 that went up if flames. on wednesday two more cars were set on fire. a honda civic in walnut creek and a chevy suburban in lafayette. some of the same firefighters who handled walnut creek blaze responded to the lafayette fire. then two car fires early thursday morning in brentwood. just a a mile from each other. one fire left a burned out shell of a pickup truck. we got this video of a shadowy figure that you can see walking in this area minutes before the fire started. finally two vehicles caught fire after 2:00 yesterday morning. a sedan explode into a fire ball into the walnut creek
9:09 am
area. and 15 minutes later a car was torched in lafayette. this string of car fires put residents throughout contra kosta county on edge. >> it's pretty scary. because if not for the vigilance of the neighbor that called, i was sound asleep. this would have probably spread to my house and god knows what would have happened then. authorities say there were more car fires before this week. they made catching the serial arsonist a top priority. we did get off the phone with the contra kosta county fire protection district. they're telling us they may release a picture of the suspect in the next hour. before the end of mornings on 2, if they do that, we'll bring it to you, and we have that press conference scheduled for later this morning. >> another fire over night. firefighters in oakland rescued -- trapped in a burning home. 74th avenue and lockwood street. when firefighters arrived they
9:10 am
say a family told them a child was still trapped inside the stretcher. the child was found in the back of the home, taken to the hospital, and is in serious condition this morning. firefighters put that fire out in 20 minutes. the cause is still under investigation. law enforcement officers are mourning the death of an alameda county sheriff deputy killed in an early morning crash yesterday. deputy ken was driving home from an over night shift at the jail yesterday morning when a charter bus slammed into his car from behind after it slowed or stalled on 580, the freeway. deputy ken heading east on 580 near grant line road and the altamont pass and livermore. carrying tesla employees from fremont back home to the valley in stockton. it's not clear what caused the crash. but chp says it's very possible the bus driver may have been blinded by the sun going up the pass. alameda county sheriff says deputy ken's death is a loss for the entire department.
9:11 am
the fact that law enforcement personnel sees so much in their normal course of duty, it's difficult for them to deal with that alone. and then when you deal with the loss of your own brother, it's really tragic. and heart wrenching. today would have been deputy ken's 51st birthday. he had been with the sheriff's department since 2007. he leaves behind a wife and four children. pressure mounting on the embattled contra kosta county da mark peterson a day after the grand jury recommended he be removed from office, some of his own deputies are speaking out against him now. peterson admitted back in december he had spent more than $66,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses. he was later fined by the state. then yesterday a seven member panel of the county's deputy da association issued a vote of no confidence and called for the rest of the 90 member union to join them. a deputy district attorney says
9:12 am

9:16 am
demonstrate their solution in a creative way. >> at the state championship, our team performed a skit about a super hero that saved the day three times. including a cliff hanger. >> that skit did involve a rap. [rapping] the team will be competing with over 800 teams from 26 countries. they have a go fund me set up to help pay for the cost of going. the team's coach terry todd and his entire team joins us in studio this morning. so really quickly before we spruce the team, tell us about this competition for people who aren't familiar with odyssey of the mind. what is it about? when you're coaching them it's about problem solving in a creative way. >> the focus of the problem is creative problem solving. in a team setting. we have teams of 5 to 7
9:17 am
participants age kindergarten through college. they're given a long-term problem to work on over the course of five months. and ten they're also given a spontaneous problem that they have to solve on the spot. >> how exciting is this to go to the world championships. >> it's incredible. i can't tell you. we had no idea we were going to be continuing on and continuing on. it's amazing but impressive to see what they created. michael is on the team. we can't interview all of you guys. but tell me who's on your team. >> okay. so this is aiden, jacob, ollie, michael, blake, turner. >> me and blake have done this before and we've gone and we've never made it to state. then going to state and going to world. the feeling is unimaginable. >> i would imagine. how do you prepare to go to michigan for the finals where you're going to have hundreds of teams from there across the
9:18 am
world? >> well, we're going to try to do what we've been doing before with our set and script and just tweak it to make it the best possible and just go to world. >> as a coach, what are you doing? you're not trying to tell them what to do or how to do it. you're letting them figure this out on their own. >> we're not allowed to give them ideas. we can ask questions to help them think about things. but we're not allowed to give them input. the biggest task is to keep them focused and on task which is a challenge at times. these are an incredibly creative group of whacky kids which is what makes them successful at this. you guys after school and in between activities are getting together. this is not in class in school. you have to really commit. how many hours a week? >> i don't know. before young go state. we were doing everyday after school. before regionals maybe like i
9:19 am
don't know, six to eight hours the day before. that's a lot. >> when you watch them work, it's kind of amazing, eighth graders, one seventh grader. >> i'm so proud of them. the commitment they've shown. i don't think anybody knew back in october that we'd still be doing this. so it's been a huge commitment. and they're a great group of kids. >> i know you've tried to raise money. it's expensive. so you guys have this go fund me. how's it going so far. >> we're half way to our goal. but we leave in less than two weeks. we're panicking trying to raise enough funds to offset the cost for the trip to michigan. our school board has been very successful -- supportive and successful in getting us part way there. but we have a lot of funds we're trying to raise. check out our go fund me page. >> that would obviously help.
9:20 am

9:32 am
on this saturday. let's start off with a look at your weather. we look out at blue skies. it's a little deceiving if you haven't been outside. >> yes, make sure you test the waters. >> yes. >> make sure you have that extra layer just in case. it may not be breezy outside your door. but there's a lot of wind stirring around. it could be breezy to the place where you're headed. temperatures are climbing at this hour. inching our way toward 60 degrees. right now, santa rosa, 56. isn't that a gorgeous view of the golden gate bridge. so the wind that's been out there over the last couple days helps to bring us this great air and great visibility. san francisco, 56, oakland, 57. we have 54 livermore. and 56 in san francisco. santa rosa in the 40s. so we're beginning to see a turn around. temperatures are cooler than where we started yesterday morning. but for most it's tough to tell by a few degrees or so. winds are generally light in
9:33 am
fairfield. breezy in oakland. novato, 22, half-moon bay, 20 to 25 over the last hour or so. now reporting 17. and sfo, the on shore breeze sustained at 10, san jose, 10, breezy, winds pick up in the afternoon, if you're going to see the giants play, mostly clear, but cool and windy, westerly breeze at 20 miles per hour. and gusts could be even stronger than that. game time 1:05. low 60s in san francisco for the afternoon. 65 in oakland. 66 in livermore. and for is south bay, 68 san jose. 70 for napa for the afternoon. the numbers are a lot like yesterday. tomorrow will be like today. we'll get a bigger cool down. and the chance for some rain coming our way by tuesday. i'll have a look at your extended forecast coming up. thank you rosemary. it's been a very busy morning for firefighters here in the east bay. a massive five alarm fire
9:34 am
started near the emeryville oakland border around 5:00 this morning. it happened at a building under construction on san pablo avenue. 40 minutes ago another fire started about a block away. we have new video of this first fire sent to us by a viewer driving by here on interstate 580. flames could be seen from that freeway. we came down 24 from a mile plus away. you can see it from all over the play. flames spread to nearby condos. and there were evacuations in the neighborhood. but fortunately no injuries to report. and by the way, this very same building caught fire last july. in a six alarm fire. a lot of questions about that. as of this morning's fire, we know firefighters say the majority is contained. but they do have hot spots. it spread to nearby condos. they say it'll be at the scene for the next 24 hours. christian has been at the scene of the first fire and the secondary fire this morning and christian, it's so much going
9:35 am
on. so many moving pieces now. how it started seems to be taking a backseat now. >> absolutely, a very active scene for oakland firefighters right now. let's give you a look. you can see this initial fire started around 5:00 this morning. fire officials still putting water on this fire trying to make sure it doesn't spread. trying to contain this fire. trying to extinguish this fire. we talked before about how there had been a previous fire at this location. one of the questions we had. and we talked about it earlier, was the possibility there may be surveillance video. if you look over here, you can see my photographer spotted this earlier, that tower with surveillance cameras on it. so we're hoping that perhaps those cameras may have captured the beginning of this fire. we're going to try to get in contact with the security company. we'll try to get in contact with the builder at some point in time to see if we can get that video. but that's for a later day. for now, let's show you what this fire looked like at 5:00
9:36 am
this morning. neighbors describe it. anyone in the area describes it as a huge orange fire ball that filled the night sky. this fire started sometime around 5:00 this morning. at this building under construction. this building was for some 100 or so housing units. so it gives you a sense of just how big this unit was. just how big this construction site was. and just how many building materials were hikely here that were able to burn. -- were likely here that were able to burn. there were a lot of open areas. it could get a lot of oxygen. this fire burned very hot. hot enough in fact to melt a crane that was hanging over the scene. and sending embers all over the place. in fact, those embers likely responsible for a second fire. now, we just went over to that other fire about 40 minutes ago when we were continuing our coverage here at this initial fire. we looked over, saw a plume of smoke rising just about two blocks away. we rushed over there.
9:37 am
and found another home under fire. oakland firefighters doing what they could to make entry into the home. trying to put the fire out. trying to gain control of the fire. other neighbors describe seeing embers and burning pieces from the first fire all over the neighborhood. so of course the concern that there could be more spot fires out there this morning. the oakland fire department said that certainly the wind has been a complicating factor when it comes to fighting this fire. >> when we got here, the other complication was that there was a lot of wind. we had other buildings not far from here, that because of embers were also caught on fire. so we have to set up another group of engine companies and truck companies to go to that area and fight fire in that area. >> you can see exactly what we're talking about as you can see there is still active flame inside the building inside neighboring buildings.
9:38 am
so as you can tell, this is going to be a very difficult effort for firefighters. firefighters telling us earlier it's going to be 24 hours of trying to surround and drown this fire. now, there is one piece of good news out of all of this, and that is that we have not heard any reports of any major injuries associated with this. one security worker apparently was minorly injured. did not need to be transported away. that's the good news. now there's also going to be the investigation. as we talked about before. this is the second fire to burn at the same location. that first fire burning back in july 2016. we talked earlier with emeryville's police chief, and she says that there will be a multijurisdictional investigation that will also include the atf to try to determine exactly how this fire and that previous fire started. >> okay. thanks for that update, christian, still a lot of work ahead of us. >> and a lot of questions to
9:39 am
answer as well. we've gotten a number of pictures that have been posted on social media. some sent here to ktvu. the building was being rebuilt after the last time. the most complete construction caught fire in 2016. thallous power. a number of people were without power this morning. and it was massive. >> we talked about what you can see when you were driving by. this person tweeted huge fire in emeryville. and really it was in terms of a spectacular site -- >> you were glued. we were on 24 coming in from the east bay. the minute you got through the tunnel you could see a big orange orb over the emeryville area. >> people are saying this is the second time. there are going to be a lot of questions about how this could happen again. the first time they said it was fire works. they're maybe rethinking that. we don't know at this time. at this point getting all the hot spots out is the priority.
9:40 am
and that picture there is amazing. and it burned for a long time. >> it was a six alarm fire. a little bit bigger. we apologize for that last tweet that had a not so nice word on that. but we move along. it was an unreal morning. a very busy morning this morning. and we continue. police in sonoma are asking for help this morning to find a missing 83-year-old man who suffers from dementia. officers say he went for a bike ride yesterday afternoon but never came home. he was last seen at 4:00. police say he didn't have a cell phone with him at the time. he's 6-2. he weighs 175-pounds. he wears a blue, plaid, flannel shirt and blue jeans and a black bike helmet. he was riding a black or silver style cruiser bike. security teams if several countries are working to restore computer systems that were part of a massive cyber attack. more than 75 countries were hit
9:41 am
yesterday in what is believed to be the biggest cyber attack of its kind. the attack infected computers with ransom ware and demanded a payment to unlock finals. russia appeared to be the hardest hit. but the cyber attack also effected britain's hospital system. they were forced to turn away patients because the system was down. that attack was not as widespread as we saw in other countries. >> these hackers were able to exploit a vulnerability that the nsa had identified that should have been patched. but they might not have been fast enough. >> the unknown hackers exploited a weakness in older versions of microsoft windows. microsoft fixed the issue in march but some companies may not have updated systems. microsoft will fix the problem for free for everyone. a british researcher helped stop the cyber attack but warned it's only a matter of time before the hackers figure out how to do it again.
