"action news" reporter jeanette reyes is live at the scene of this discovery in the 400 block of ridge avenue in plymouth township. good morning, jeanette. >> reporter: good morning, matt. we know that police are looking into this as a possible homicide. they were here late into the night yesterday collecting evidence, really sifting through this scene here trying to find some clues that would give them some answers. take a look at the scene from above with chopper6 hd. this is above the shopping plaza where i am right now in the 400 block of ridge pike in plymouth township. that gruesome discovery was made just before 6:00 monday evening. now, the scene is fairly large. it took up about two parking lots so this shopping plaza as well as the outback that is right next door but police seem to focus their efforts on several cars here. we do understand a blood trail stretched from one parking lot to the other. in the end they ended up
together one of the darker colored cars there after inspecting it for any evidence. no word this morning on whether they were able to retrieve from that car anything of significance. and also no word on the cause of death, although this man was possibly stabbed to death. we are still getting some information on this developing story. as soon as we get that we'll make sure to pass it right along to you. reporting live at plymouth township, jeanette reyes, channel6 "action news." matt. >> thanks jeanette. this is surveillance video from just outside the burning senior living center that went up in flames on thursday night. you can see first responders carrying out elderly residents from barclay friends senior living community in west chester. more than two dozen people out of the 137 residents in all were hurt. a 92-year-old man his 89-year-old wife and 85-year-old woman and a 93-year-old woman remain unaccounted for. >> the firefighters told me that they kept going back in there until their helmets were

"action news" caught up with several groups practicing in front of the art museum last night. thursday's parade will kick offer at 8:30 hosted by our very own rick williams and cecily tynan. you can watch it from the comfort of your home or down on the parkway but if you're
watching it of course it's only here on 6abc. >> before we get to that thanksgiving business we'll enjoy a warmup. >> mild this afternoon still chilly right now. we're dry. taking a look outside we're expecting plenty of sunshine coming up over the horizon, you're getting a sense of that maybe a few clouds around early but overall mostly sunny and still chilly to begin as i mentioned the temperature right now in philadelphia is just 42 degrees. and in some suburbs, like allentown, we're still in the upper 20's and some other spots like trenton and wilmington still in the 30's. so a jacket a pretty good idea this morning. the winds are light but at 8 miles per hour breeze when you're starting in the 30's and 40's is enough to add to that chilly feel. there are those earlier clouds now sweeping away from us so get the sunglasses ready as you head out on the highways and byways. a little additional cloud cover to the south and more to the west. it's possible that we'll see some high cloud cover increasing as the day goes on especially later this evening. but in general we're going to go for a breezy milder and fairly sunny day ahead. 42 degrees by 8 o'clock.
49 by 10 o'clock. and by noon, 55 degrees with a high around 59 degrees. i could see 60 on some thermometers briefly this afternoon. and we're looking at those highs more or less around 3 o'clock. even by 6 o'clock that 54 isn't bad. high temperatures across the region today 56 in allentown and reading 57 in trenton. we'll go 59 in philadelphia wilmington and millville. and 58-degree readings on the boardwalk in atlantic city and the promenade in cape may. future tracker6 later tonight at 11 o'clock, this is a new model run, it does show you the possibility of a little blip of precipitation beginning to develop while cecily tynan is on the air tonight and then in the overnight hours into 4:30 in the morning when we're on the air, there is the possibility of some rain. this makes it look like it's real heavy rain not sure that's going to be the case. might be more light to moderate rain but still it's going to be there and it does look like it gets off the coast by about maybe 8, 9 o'clock tomorrow morning and of course it will be drying out a lot sooner than that in philadelphia. and you can see the clouds quickly breaking up too so we'll introduce sunshine into play tomorrow. tomorrow is a big traveling day.
other than that real early morning shower it looks like a decent one to get stuff done and to get on the move 48 degrees by 8 o'clock. by noon 53. sunshine of course following those early showers. a high of 54 early in the afternoon and then temperatures may cool a little bit as we go later into the day. still, not bad overall. so, 54 is tomorrow's early day high with temperatures drifting down a little bit in the afternoon. for thanksgiving high pressure comes in making for a sunny and calm thanksgiving. but that high is also going to direct some cooler air in and we are going to get chilly on thursday. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, breezy and milder today 59. sun, perhaps giving way to some late day clouds. a little bit of a shower overnight into early tomorrow morning and then it's clouds to sun with a high of 54. for thursday if you're headed down to the parade, look for a sunrise temperature in philadelphia around the freezing mark and then getting up to about 40 by the end of the parade. lots of sun. i don't think the winds are going to be that bad so the balloons should be able to fly and then an afternoon high of 45. chilly but you can definitely get down there and continue your family tradition of
watching the parade live if you like or tune into 6abc of course. partly sunny on friday, 52. it will be in the 30's in the morning for those of you camping out in front of your favorite retailer and then on saturday we've got a mix of clouds and sun 55 maybe a sprinkle at night and 45 for the eagles game on sunday. sun mixing with clouds there. monday really looks delightful. 39 degrees. some people get mad because they're like hey, i like tcold weather but -- >> bundle up. >> when i say delightful -- >> different things to different people. >> right. >> all right. it is 6:39. and new this morning, a gas leak sparks a massive fire that continues to burn right now. >> a driver gets quite a surprise when she finds a tiny but creepy and uninvited guest riding shotgun. >> oh my goodness. >> karen. >> that's not tiny.
