"action news" reporter katherine scott is sorting this one out and joins us live at 19th and pine streets. katherine. >> reporter: matt, it still remains under investigation at this hour. karen mentioned there are a number of closures in the area but that's because at this point they're still processing this as a crime scene. they say that any sort of threat is over, all of the neighbors, the next door neighbors, the people in the same apartment in the same building they were aloud to return. they're still processing the crime scene here in center city and you can see that pine street here by 19th is closed off. we see the police and the fire department on the scene. the bomb squad is here. postal inspectors are on the scene as well. initial information from the victim's roommate who told police is that the explosion happened when this 62-year-old man opened a package that he received in the mail. they had believed the package contained medication. the victim does routinely get
6:04 am
inhalers in the mail but they don't know with certainty what was inside this package. he received the package around 5:00 p.m. on monday but didn't open it until around 4:00 a.m. when police arrived they found a man suffering from injuries to his hands and chest. he was bleeding from both of his hands. he was taken to jefferson in stable condition and again, the investigation continues at this hour. >> as far as i know there were no threats prior to this and there's been no threat since. like i said there's a possibility that this was just an accidental explosion. we're not certain at this point whether this was intentional or accidental. >> reporter: so that's part of this investigation right now. they said of course they don't know if this was intentional or if it was some sort of accidental chemical explosion. that's all part of this investigation. this happened in the kitchen of the building. there was some broken glass there, there was damage to a cooking range but no structural damage and again as i mentioned before, the people that had been evacuated around 10 people including people in
6:05 am
the building that were in other apartments and the next door neighbors they have since been allowed to return home. we're live in center city, katherine scott, channel6 "action news. >> thanks, katherine. a fire quickly spread from a garage to a home in philadelphia's frankford section. the action cam was on the 4800 block of mulberry street where you can see the power lines sparking and catching fire. the flames broke out at 1:30 a.m. neighbors reported hearing explosions, then saw fire coming from a garage in the rear of the property. firefighters sounded a second alarm as they will battled the blaze. no one was hurt but eight people are displaced including an infant. the red cross will help them find shelter. >> also breaking overnight the driver of an elementary school bus that was involved in a deadly crash in tennessee is behind bars. police charged 24-year-old johnthony walker with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. five children were killed in the crash in chattanooga. the school bus packed with 35 children ran off the road

6:09 am
it's still going to be pretty chilly. windy and chilly at the shore 48 degrees the high there. and in philadelphia we'll go for another high of 48 degrees, a little better than yesterday but still pretty windy and chilly with those winds gusting out of the northwest at times as high as 35 miles per hour. now, that would be strong enough to give us another day where there's a little debris rolling around on roadways maybe a trash cans and tree branch here or there and man those leaves really piled up. i got a guy come blow all the levers all the way and the last couple of days, they're back. overnight tonight mainly clear, the winds dying down overnight. 25 is the overnight low in some outlying suburbs. philadelphia probably drops to about the freezing mark. now that means tomorrow morning it will be another cold start but at least it won't be as windy. look at how those winds die down overnight. those of you tired of the wind the last couple days tomorrow things get better. future tracker6 picking up wednesday story at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. in case you are traveling to the northeast up to boston or points north for thanksgiving holidays, it looks tranquil. it's cool but no obstructions on the roadways.
6:10 am
and pretty much the same story down south. in fact at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon in savannah georgia, 70, maybe you should suddenly find relatives in savannah and head down there. that's going to be really nice. maybe a couple of sprinkles and showers. the big issue will be in the northwest upper northwest, chicago, indianapolis, saint louis will have some rain and minneapolis a little snow in the middle of the afternoon tomorrow. around here tomorrow we're going up to 49 degrees t it will be fairly tranquil and dry during the day with some clouds increasing as the day goes on. and then there's the system that comes in at night with mainly rain for us. a little bit of a concern here. this is late wednesday night in through the overnight hours on early thursday morning. you can see how there's a little precipitation. the model putting it mainly up in the lehigh valley. i think some of this could get into berks county and maybe northern bucks and montco. if that happens it's going to be colds enough where in could freeze up on surfaces a little bit. again it looks like it's done by the time we get up in the morning but if you're getting up early on thursday morning to drive down to the
6:11 am
thanksgiving day parade, in those northern areas maybe a little icy patch here or there. sunny still windy today, 48 degrees is the high. wednesday partly sunny, less wind, 49. and then on thursday we're looking at cloudy skies, a high of have a, temperatures climbing from the low 40's to the upper 40's during the parade and there is the chance of a touch of rain but it really looks like just a couple of light spotty showers around so hopefully we're dry for the parade. can't totally promise that. friday clouds, some sun, 54 degrees. a late shower possible there. and then mainly dry on saturday, just a spotty shower for temple football and dry on sunday. >> and leftovers from thanksgiving. >> right. >> my favorite. >> i love that. >> thanks, david. 6:11. a group of children standing at a curb are about to realize they're getting caught "philly what's up" a police chase. >> kanye west is rushed to the hospital. those close to him now commenting on the rapper's condition. karen. >> starting to slow down just a bit on 422 eastbound past oaks as we see this traffic here headed towards king of prussia. we'll see what's happening on

6:31 am
the region. they're not everywhere but we have them in the 20's and in those spots not seeing currents gusts you're still looking at sustained winds in the teens so it is still on the windy side probably getting more so after sunrise. temps right now are on the chilly side. 40 degrees in philadelphia, upper 30's pretty much everywhere else and when you combine the temperature and the wind we have wind chills down around the freezing mark, thus the heavy coat. you want to prepare for to it feel like it's around freezing this morning. 37 degrees by 7 o'clock. 40 degrees by 10 o'clock. and by noon, 44. your high today a few degrees better than yesterday at 48 degrees but it will still be windy. not quite as blustery as yesterday. we no longer have a wind advisory but you're still looking at gusts in the 20's and 30's. you'll be hunching your shoulders if you're not dressed appropriately. 42 degrees by 6 o'clock. winds will die down later and then we get a little bit better heading toward thanksgiving temperature-wise. although there is the chance of some precipitation karen rogers i'll go over that coming up. >> dave, come on inside. let's check the roads right
