afternoon, be careful. 6 degrees warmer in napa this morning as well as santa rosa. east bay shore 5 degrees warmer in hayward. and concord, we are 5 degrees warmer. so yesterday, we started with the temperatures up. and we are back up again. and temperatures are going to be quite hot again for today. very similar to yesterday. there's a view from up above and you can see we are without the fog. and we do have the onshore weez. it hasn't gone away completely. but it's very weak. fairfield reporting 12 miles per hour and not expected to pick up for today. so for the afternoon, we have temperatures up the coast very comfortable because we have the onshore breeze. but inland, not going to help us at all. here's some of the upper level winds coming from the south. and, again, talking about the fire in san luis obispo county and the fire in brentwood. so if you are north of any of that, you could see some of the smoke for today. if you are not seeing it just yet. for the afternoon, 60s and 70s at the coast. 70s and 80s around the bay. 90s expected inland and far- reaching areas will get above 100 degrees. i will have a look at the

afternoon highs for today. talk about a cool down coming our way starting tomorrow, coming up. >> thanks rosemary. the arson task force is among the groups investigating the massive fire that wiped out a building unconstruction in oakland. 700 to 900 people living nearby were forced to evacuate from their homes. this is the fourth construction fire for oakland or emeryville in the past year. >> authorities are trying to find out what caused that fire and why it spread so quickly. >> firefighters have been on the scene around the clock. let's gee to kristien kafton. you were one of the first -- christien kafton. you were one of the first on the scene. locks like they are putting water on it. >> reporter: they are. there's a lot of hot spots out here. let's show you the new development. if you look over there, you can see a big crane and heavy equipment being brought in to the scene of the fire.
7:34 am
presum bly to bin the -- presumably to begin the process of taking it of the building. -- out of the building. you can see that the extension ladder with a hose dumping water into the fire. and the reason for that is because if we look further, you can see steam pouring out of the building. an indication there's a lot of hot spots inside the building. remember, we had several floors of material that collapsed down. so there could very well be hot pockets in there. we have watched as crews arrived with that heavy equipment. today may be a very busy day with engineers expected to show up here to determine how to remove the scaffolding and crane. that fire broke out yesterday at around 4:30 in the morning. flames filling the early  morning sky and embers raining down on the surrounding neighborhood. city officials say remarkably, nobody injured in this fire, including the dozens of firefighters who had to battle the massive blaze. now the fire is out, the questions have started. how did this fire start in the first place, be a as you said
7:35 am
-- and as you said earlier, it's the latest in series of strange or suspicious fires that have struck large apartment buildings a at critical point in the construction. the point is they are complete enough to have wooden framing throughout and no sprinkler systems in place. fire officials say they will be working hard to get to the bottom of it. >> i am unable to provide any definitive information about the cause of this incident, it certainly is a concern. so moving forward as the investigation continues, i am sure it will reveal information that will be helpful to determine the ultimate cause of the incident. >> reporter: yeah, the firefighter is putting out a call to gather as much information from the public as possible. really before that investigation begins, they have to secure the scene which means dismantling the crane that we watched swing around for a hour yesterday. the crane is unusable at this point and presumably, in danger of collapse. we expect engineers to determine how to bring that crane down and determine what parts of the building are
7:36 am
structurally sound. as we said before, my colleague alex savidge was here as one of the walls came tumbling down as the fire was burning yesterday. so clearly, an unsafe situation for fire crews or even engineers to be inside the building at this point. now, we can tell you that we are expecting alameda county arson stays being force members and members of the atf to show up at some point. we don't know when the official investigation about get underweeway. we know they want to look and determine exactly where the fire started. that may give them a clue as to how it started. first, though, they have to be sure it is safe to go in. that means putting out the hot spots and making sure it is instructually sound for any investigators to go inside what's left of the apartment building. >> christien we have been talking about the hundreds of people evacuated from around the area. some were allowed to go back to get stuff and get back out. what is access like in that neighborhood for people who are
7:37 am
still kind of watching things and wondering? >> reporter: right. so, access is restricted. if we take a look down the street here, you might be able to see there's a police squad car. so for a block in any direction around this building, thr restricting vehicular traffic. there could be some pedestrians who can walk in and out of the scene. they don't want anyone to cross the tape, because remember, although they are stopping short of calling this suspicious, they are treating it as if it's a potential crime scene. so that means they want to keep as many people out as possible. they don't want anybody to get in. possibly contaminating evidence that could be associated with the fire. so they want to restrict access and monitor who comes and goes. >> okay we will keep an eye on things. thanks for that update christien. the fire wiped out building that would have provided much needed housing in the city of oakland. the atlantic based developer says they are in the process of gathering all the facts about the fire but is grateful there

7:40 am
investigation continues, i am sure it will reveal information that will be helpful to determine the ultimate cause. >> reporter: until then workers say they will work in fear trying to prevent what they hope won't be a trend. >> security is not enough. >> reporter: would that mean you yourself would cop out and keep a look out? >> can be keep-- keep a look out? >> whatever it takes. >> reporter: the cost is unknown if it's row lated to a arson spree it would not be new. in new york an arsonist torched 7 new homes in 2015 and in san diego, an environmental activist group took responsibility for burning down a housing project almost 15 years ago. candice nguyen ktvu, fox 2 news. and we post more information about the fire -- posted more information about the fire. there's photo gallery showing intensity of the fire and the damage that it caused. a hit-and-run crash that killed two young boys was taken

8:09 am
air yesterday while my colleague, alex savidge, was reporting. that gives you an indication of of how dangerous this building could be. that's one of the reasons they do not want to have any investigators or anybody inside. there is no telling one part of the scaffolding or when one of those walls may come tumbling down. at this point in time, we do not have a timeline. we are looking to see if we can talk with fire officials later this morning to figure out when they will get to work and went they will have a chance to get investigators inside. wants to get inside, they can start to determine where the fire started and from that point they may have an idea on how the fire started. back to your. >> lots of questions. thank you. the fire forced as many as 900 people living in the area to evacuate. the red cross opened a shelter last night at saint vincent de paul community center.

9:04 am
city officials say remarkably no one was injured including the dozens of firefighters who had to battle the blaze. the fire is out and now the questions have started. out of the fire start? that atf personnel just starting to arrive. we are expecting alameda county arson task force members to arrive at some point to beginning the investigation. fire officials say they will work hard to get to the bottom of exactly how the fire started. >> while i am unable to provide any definitive information about the cause of this incident, it is certainly a concern to us. moving forward, as the investigation continues, i am sure it will reveal information that will be helpful to determining the ultimate cause of this incident. >> reporter: before investigators can get into the scene they have to secure the scene and that means dismantling that massive crane. we watched yesterday as it swung around widely for about an hour.
9:05 am
the crane is unusable at this point and possibly in danger of collapse. we are expecting some engineers to determine how that is going to come down. coming back to the live picture, he can see that crane is starting to maneuver equipment into place. presumably to begin either dismantling that large crane that is over the scene or dismantle some parts of the building or help dismantle the scaffolding. this is the building that was under construction. there is a lot of scaffolding around it that is in danger of collapsing. all of which could pose a potential threat to any firefighters who are either inside the structure or fire investigators who are inside the structure. clearly, they want to be sure it is as safe as possible before they launch the investigation. we are hoping to find out more about windows alameda county arson task force members are due on scene and find out what they can do now before they can go inside. presumably they are looking for video. that is one of the things the interim chief said yesterday. he is looking for any witnesses or video of this fire. they are trying to track down how the fire started and are
