freezing. not a great combination. especially when the atmosphere overall is too warm for snow. visibilities look good in philadelphia. no problems here at the moment. we do have a first alert until 9:00 a.m. this is for some patchy areas of light freezing rain on untreated surfaces. keep an eye on that. if it looks wet, it's possibly going to be icy in some areas. the sun is going to melt it all as we go into 9:00 a.m. so this is the area with the possibility of icing. again, only for a couple of hours. you can see on the radar there's plenty of that action on the radar, but a lot of that stuff on the eastern side is not reaching the ground. there's more coming at us from central pennsylvania. and mostly in the northern areas it looks to be headed north to the lehigh valley and the pocanos where we get icing there. in southeastern pennsylvania much of the area is above freezing. but we still have to keep our eye on that with a close call. we'll have pottstown at 33

6:03 am
one firefighter did receive minor injuries. now the mayor, we talked about him earlier, he's here at the scene to tell me what a devastating loss this is to the community. this inn has seen historic figures like george washington. >> this is the place where george washington was. this is the place where senators and assembly people come. this is the place where people celebrate their birthdays or anniversaries. their life events. this is the center of our town. and it's a very big hole in it right now. >> reporter: a very big hole in this community is right. now, about four hours after this fire first started, most of the firefighters from the neighboring towns have left. the fire crews that remain are just really getting the hoses back to their trucks and are ready to clear on out. but once the sun comes up we know this is going to draw many people from throughout the community.

6:05 am
not addressed. so here's what happened. one of the residents says she was in the middle section of her house when the front section started coming down. >> so i was laying down. and all i heard was the porch. then my husband called for everybody to get up and get out of the house. >> reporter: you can see photos of the house taken a few hours before the collapse. here's the reason a newspaper reporter was out here yesterday doing a story about the dangers of this house. and then this happened. she rushed back out here and we'll hear from her coming up at 6:30. meanwhile, another live look out here as i'm reaching out to camden officials to find out what is going on with the history of this property. but for the most part the scene is crossed off. fortunately this family got out okay. matt delucia, "nbc 10 news." new from overnight, a shooting in the west oak lane section of philadelphia sent two people to the hospital. police say two men were sitting

6:09 am
there's some possible icing north of philadelphia. at least on some surfaces. but it is all going to improve pretty rapidly during the morning with a nice afternoon there. we are now up to 36 in philadelphia. i don't think we'll have much of an icy threat in the city. and we've got some good news on the radar coming up as well. calm conditions right now. we don't see that real often. look at this area officially with possible icing until 9:00 a.m. but probably the northern half of this, north of the pennsylvania turnpike is the main threat. as you can see on the radar, some of the southern moisture is pretty much leaving the area. plus the temperatures are starting to go up. so that is helping us. this precipitation in central pennsylvania is headed right toward the lehigh valley. and the pocanos and some of that area in the pink indicate that it is cold enough for some icing. we're getting more and more rain
6:10 am
on the radar farther to the south. we'll take a look at some of the temperatures. of course, these are critical. coatsville, we have 30 degrees. but there's less precipitation on the radar. it's allentown at 31 for example, that we're a little bit more concerned about. wilmington is 32. but there's no precipitation that far south. trenton had a little bit of rain but they are well above freezing right now. and so is the shore area. again, they are dry as well. hour by hour we're seeing most of the precipitation well north of the philadelphia area into upper buck and montgomery county lehigh valley and berks county. but there it is just kind patchy. and that will be improving dramatically by 9:00 a.m. where it is clear at 43 and 50 by noon. i'll have the seven-day forecast coming up in a few minutes. ten minutes after 6:00 we'll get an update on the traffic this time of the morning. >> traffic reporter jillian mele is watching that for us.

6:18 am
middle of pennsylvania. so those are positive signs here. there are so many places of light, freezing rain. there's patchy light rain north of philadelphia. the activity that was down here in chester county that's pretty much dissipating. so we have much better conditions there. 33 in pottstown. 37 in doylestown. so in many areas, temperatures are above freezing. we have to go in there hour by hour and mile by mile and make sure that everybody is at or above the freezing mark. look at that collegeville 31 degrees. some places a couple degrees makes a significant difference. pottstown, 32 degrees. during the day today, any early light icing will disappear quickly. and the clouds are going to disappear, too. we'll have clearing skies into the 50s again. tomorrow a lot of clouds around with the rain coming later on in the day.
