8:00 am
good morning, america. breaking news -- is it another clue? more mysterious debris washes ashore on tiny remote reunion island. as investigators in france focus on this plane part. the new hope this morning. wall of flames. california's largest wildfire bearing down on homes. evacuations, injuries and the state of emergency. will an improving forecast help them get the upper hand? ready to run. speculation is growing that vice president joe biden might throw his hat into the ring. >> hi, how are you? >> the latest polls that could convince him to launch a presidential campaign and the reported death bed plea from son beau that could be the deciding factor. and knockout,
8:01 am
rowdy ronda rousey's lightning-quick victory of 34 seconds. what she's saying about her big win this morning and a look at her very ambitious plans for the future. hey, good morning, everybody, let's get right to our top story. what may be another intriguing discovery involving the missing malaysian air flight 370. look at these images coming in from the island off the coast of africa. where something new, a small metallic object has been found on the beach there. >> reportedly with chinese and mandarin writing on it. it is very early, of course. we don't know whether this object is in fact from that missing plane. if confirmed, it would be remarkable. two objects washing ashore on a little islands thousands of miles from where
8:02 am
searchers had been looking for that plane. that new discovery comes just days after a piece of the plane's wing was found on a beach. >> it has arrived under heavy guard in france, where it will be analyzed in the coming days. so, do we now have two big clues to this aviation mystery? our coverage begins this morning here with abc's bob woodruff. >> reporter: well, dan, good morning. this new piece of evidence is being described as a small, metallic object with ideograms. it is still very unclear if it was part of flight 370 but it is another possible piece of evidence. this new discovery on the beach of reunion island could provide more important clues of what happened to flight 370. this new small metallic object was found on the same day when this part of a wing was discovered, which is now 5,000 miles away at a defense ministry
8:03 am
laboratory in france waiting for analysis. which will begin on wednesday. as for the newly discovered debris, apparently there are chinese characters written on to object. as for part of the wing, now in france, analysts have found these numbers and letters. 657-bb identifying it coming from a flight 777. >> it's wait as the malaysian airplane was. we know of no other 777s. >> reporter: while the wing part was white, the new debris could have other kind of clues, perhaps colors. look at this picture of colors, red and white stripes. the man who found these items didn't report it before now because he didn't see the news until yesterday. all of this debris could be floating for 17 months, a large system of circular ocean currents that normally move counterclockwise. all of the debris, including this large part of the wing, are
8:04 am
small dots on the gigantic sea, very difficult to see. >> if you look at this piece of metal, there are barnacles all around the top, which would suggest to me it was all submerged. and it was probably floating just below, just out of sight. >> reporter: so, now, with more debris being discovered, the next, most important concentration will be on finding the plane itself, this debris, of course, was floating on top of the sea, more likely that the plane itself is on the bottom of the sea, which means thousands of miles away, probably much closer to australia. paula. >> all right, bob, thank you. and we want to turn things back to our aviation consultant steve ganyard. first and foremost, this can't be coincidental. what are the chances two pieces of debris are found on the same remote island in the same week? >> paula, i think, on one hand, if we found one piece of debris that there are others probably with it. because these currents aren't
8:05 am
going to split whatever was floating or whatever was left from the mishap itself. i think we may find other pieces. on the other hand, i think we need to be careful. because, now, every piece of garbage in the indian ocean is going to look like a 777 piece. we need to manage our expectations here. let's get this back to to the forensic laboratory in france and see if it's a piece of the missing aircraft. >> if these pieces turn out to be from that doomed plane, how difficult will it be to figure out what brought it down? >> well, think of -- when you do mishap investigations, it's like a crime scene investigation. they use all sort of forensics. they'll look at the metal and how the metal was damaged. you know, their engineers and scientists can go back in and they can look at torsional twisting. how metal tears. there are clues they can get out
8:06 am
of these pieces. but, in terms of helping us go back and find out what bob was talking about where the rest of the airplane is, on the bottom of the ocean, probably 1,000 miles off of australia, these parts really aren't going to help us find where that airplane is now. >> all right, as has been the case since mh370 has gone missing, more questions than answers this morning. steve, thank you for joining us. dan? we're going to move now to the front lines of the hot, dry fiery nightmare in the american west. dozen of wildfires are burning, most sparked by lightning strikes and fueled by dry heat. this morning, the governor has declared a state of emergency, saying the record drought has turned much of the state into a tinderbox. let's go to kayna whitworth, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan, good morning to you. unfortunately, those words are true, but cal fire has the largest firefighting force in the world. now, firefighters up north, they
8:07 am
are desperate for help. they have been working in 24-hour shifts for 21 days. and once the governor declared a state of emergency, that means they're not going home any time soon. overnight a race against time as over 8,000 firefighters battled 21 wildfires tearing across california. the flames, claiming the life of one firefighter. >> unfortunately, there's tragic occurrences that do occur. >> reporter: california's biggest blaze growing overnight, the rocky fire threatening hundreds of homes, stretching more than 27,000 acres, only 5% contained. >> now, we shifted a bit where we don't have those high winds from the knot. >> reporter: two people including a california highway patrol officer injured in this inferno sparked by a car crash. the scene all too familiar for residents in southern california, it was here, 3500 acres along with cars and homes scorched by a fast-moving blaze just last month.
8:08 am
this morning, some good news for firefighters battling the willow fire, officials believe the worst of this fire is likely behind them. crews containing 50% of the blaze that has ripped through more than 5,000 acres. now this is one of 12 bases placed throughout this state and the idea here is that they can respond to any fire that breaks out within 20 minutes, but paula, compared to this time last year, they have already responded to a thousand more fires. >> kayna, thank you. we want to move to the political battlefield now, and news that could shake up the democratic nomination, joe biden may jump into the ring. abc's mary bruce is at the white house, and mary, this would certainly shake up the race. >> hey, paula, good morning. well, nothing has been decided yet, but many have voiced concerns there aren't more candidates on the democratic
8:09 am
side, now it seems that the vice president could change that. this morning, joe biden isn't saying yes, but he isn't saying no to a possible run at the white house. his political machine is gearing up. >> hi, how are you? >> reporter: abc news has learned the vice president's chief of staff is quietly talking to biden supporters, and democratic donors, clearing the way for a possible presidential campaign. the vice president hasn't indicated yet if he's in or out. but it's no secret that he's interested. >> yes, there's a chance. >> our nation needs my father, my hero, joe biden. >> reporter: one thing reportedly weighing heavily on his mind, his son beau's dying wish. "the new york times" reporting, on his death bed, beau had a mission, he tried to make his father promise to run. >> so help me god. >> reporter: biden is an experienced campaigner. if he runs, it would be his third attempt at the white house. >> so, give me a break. >> reporter: but he's also had
8:10 am
his fair share of stumbles. but back rubs to -- biden is a gaffemaking machine. but, though, oh that joe moments is part of his political charm. >> happy new year. >> reporter: the latest polling shows biden with his highest favorability rating in seven years, highest than any other democrat already in the race. if he decides to jump in, political speaking, that would be a big deal. dan. >> all right, mary bruce, thank you. obviously, this would be an earthquake in the race for president. let's bring in ashes's chief white house correspondent jon karl, in washington, who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. jon, good morning, my friend. how likely is it really, let's get a reality check -- how
8:11 am
likely is it that biden is going to run? >> i'm told he's seriously looking at this. there are people in his inner circle who are preparing for a possible run. i have talked to several longtime biden advisers who are divided. but one told me that he believes that biden is 90% in. >> wow, that certainly sounds like he's going to do it. but let me ask what the consequences are likely to be, as we know hillary clinton has had more time to raise money, and build an organization, how serious a threat will biden be? >> well, look, huge obstacles, getting in so late, without the organization and without the money. biden has run for president twice, did not do well at all in either of those campaigns. there are signs that hillary clinton is vulnerable and biden would be a force in this race from the start. he'll undoubtedly be a serious challenger, pose a serious threat to hillary clinton. >> shaping up to an extremely interesting year.
8:12 am
you'll be covering it this morning. much more on the race to the white house, plus, an interview with the current republican front-runner donald trump coming up later this morning on "this week." right here on abc. paula, over to you. >> an interesting show. take a look at what stopped people in their tracks overnight, here in new york city, photos of endangered animals, they were projected on to the empire state building, meant to spark conversation. many eyes are focusing on zimbabwe and the fate of another lion. believed to be the brother of that one killed by the american dentist. abc's phillip mena has the good morning, phillip. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. the story is only gaining steam this morning, a ban on big-game hunting in zimbabwe and the calls for justice for cecil the lion only getting louder. this morning, zimbabwe cracking town on hunting, restricting the act in the wake of the illegal killing of cecil the lion,
8:13 am
releasing this statement, "hunting of lions, leopards and elephants in areas outside of the hwange national park has been suspended with immediate effect." dr. walter palmer shot and killed the beloved lion cecil. overnight, rumors swirling of another devastating poaching. this time, cecil's brother lion, jericho. but they released this photo of jericho alive and well. meanwhile dr. palmer hasn't been seen publicly in days, his office and home besieged by angry crowds. >> all: justice for cecil! >> reporter: while zimbabe authorities have called for his extradition. >> the two other criminals, the locals have appeared before our local courts. >> reporter: but it's not at all clear that the u.s. would agree to extradite him. conservation groups say that there are u.s. laws that might apply like the lacey act signed into law by president mckinley in 1900 to protect rare species of wildlife and plants.
8:14 am
to be clear the u.s. law that could apply here isn't about the poaching of wild animals overseas, it's the issue of importing them. if charges are pursued, and there's a conviction, jail time is possible. >> all right, lot of heat on this story. let's send things to ron. good morning, ron. good morning, everyone. we begin with the manhunt under way in memphis, tennessee, for did gunman who fatally shot a police officer during a routine traffic stop. the police officer was shot multiple times and died at a local hospital. the suspect fled the scene. the victim was the third memphis police officer to be killed in the line of duty since 2011. and president obama is expected to unveil a new initiative to combat climate change tomorrow. the white house releasing a video on facebook saturday, which calls the proposed emissions regulations the biggest, most important step we have ever

8:16 am
number s54 and s55 may remain stuck on the cheese, if the film is not removed it could pose a choking hazard. finally, american basketball comes to africa, some current and former nba stars hit the hardwood in johannesburg, south africa, saturday night. team world end upbeating team africa. 101-97. and speaking of sports, i would like to issue an apology to all of those new york mets fans i offended who were not amused by my attempted humor. i was wrong, you were right. they're a great team. they are close to first place in their division, having beaten the washington nationals last night. >> is this new ron claiborne likely to start saying nice
8:17 am
things about the boston red sox? >> i wouldn't press it. >> i'm not going to say anything more than that. >> if there's a rematch in the subway series, you'll cheer for the mets? okay. >> we heard that from you. but now moving on to something no one ever wants to experience, someone breaking into your home, imagine watching it happen in realtime on your smartphone. it's happening more and more. abc's mara schiavocampo joins us with more. >> reporter: that's exactly what happened to a utah man. watching a would-be burglar go through his home as he sat in his driveway. he was able to alert police before going into the house, because the suspect turned out to be armed. police say this woman isn't dropping by, she's breaking in. only she doesn't know that the salt lake city home she's breaking into is equipped with a security system, steaming the
8:18 am
whole thing live to his phone. he's watching from the safety of his driveway. >> and this is kind of what i saw when i came home. >> reporter: he said coming home late thursday night he was spooked to find a strange car in his driveway and his front door ajar. that's when he fired up the app and saw this. 12k3w4r hello. >> reporter: but the alleged quickly turns terrifying, calling him by name after lifting it from a piece of mail. >> she said my name which was disturbing. >> reporter: after that, not wasting any time to alert police. who arrive on scene with guns drawn and canine officers at their side. according to cops, she surrenders immediately. >> let me see your hands. >> reporter: hands empty but
8:19 am
investigators say she was carrying an eight-inch knife. now, the suspect is behind bars, facing burglary charges, that security system runs about $200. but in this case clearly worth the money for that. let's get it over to rob marciano, standing next to our own in-home mets fan. what's going on, sir? we'll take you to tampa they are crushed with rainfall there, incredible wet july and august starting off the same way. over three inches of rain falling in tampa, flooding out roads and stalling cars, sandbags dealing it for weeks now. north of tampa, another ten inches of rainfall. this is the radar this morning it continues to throw moisture up over the west coast of florida. we have flood watches and warnings, tampa could see two to three inches of rainfall always the installed frontal boundary is draped across the area.
