6:02 am
elizabeth: we want to give you a look at the road conditions to the west. they have been deteriorating. blue out there means partially covered and tank indicating completely covered. keep in mind if you do travel across the state today. shaina: turning to today's big stories. fire officials in fort dodge are investigating a massive fire that destroyed a downtown warehouse. it happened monday at the graham tire company, right across the street from the fort dodge fire station. fire fighters battled bitter-cold, single-digit temps for hours. inside the warehouse, more than 6,000 tires burned, leaving the four-story structure completely engulfed in flames at one point. fortunately, no one was inside. all five workers were on a lunch break when the fire started. danny menke: i actually seen it 8 miles away on my way in to town and could not believe when i come over the viaduct and seeing that it was our building on fire and knowing that i was
6:03 am
i am just fortunate i wasn't there when it started. shaina: one firefighter did suffer minor injuries to his hand. the cause of the fire remains under investigation. and we're learning more about a fire in boxholm this weekend that killed a mother and her three children. officials say they found a space heater inside the home where the family was killed. they say that could have started the blaze, but have still not announced an official cause. the father of the family was at work at the time of the fire. there is a go fund me page to help the family that has already raised nearly $40,000. you can find a link to donate on our website elizabeth: rape case closed. authorities in marion county say dna evidence has solved a cold case nearly 8 years later. 44-year-old james murphy is charged with 2nd degree sexual abuse. marion county deputies say in 2008, murphy kidnapped a woman at knife point in rural marion county and sexually assaulted her in a vacananhouse. the victim couldn't identify murphy, which is why so much
6:04 am
but his dna from a 2014 sexual assault case in decatur county recently matched the unsolved case from 2008. detective reed kious: obviously you don't want to have criminals out there thinking they can do these things and not be held accountable. obviously, i hope the victim finds some type of resolution or solace in this result. elizabeth: the statute of limitations in iowa for sexual assault cases is three years after a known match is found in codis. that's why authorities say rape cases are often solved several years later. shaina: it was a big night for iowa state basketball last night. they took on the number one team in the country, oklahoma, in front of a national audience on espn's big monday. monte morris helped secure the win for the cyclones with a rebound and two free throws with just seconds left on the clock. morris finished the night with 20 points, and georges niang had a good night too with 22 points. and abdel nader finished with 20 points.

final score 82 to 77. isu is on the road next against tcu on saturday. tipoff is at 3:00 p.m. on espn u. meanwhile, the iowa hawkeyes made another big jump in the national polls monday. the hawks are now up to ninth in the nation. that's the highest iowa has been ranked since 2001. sunday's win over michigan gave iowa its first 5 and 0 big ten start in the last 19 years. iowa heads to new jersey next to take on rutgers. that game is thursday at 6:00 p.m. on espn u. elizabeth: new this morning, doctors in eastern iowa say a common repository virus is on the rise. kcci's alyx sacks is following the story this morning. alyx just how common is rsv? elizabeth, the centers for disease control says respiratory
6:06 am
-- it infects the lungs and breathing passages. it causes 50,000 under five each year. healthy people usually experience mild, cold-like symptoms and recover in a week or two. the cdc says to look out for loss of appetite, running nose, coughing, sneezing, and fever. irritability, breathing difficulties, decreased activity may be the only symptoms. >> we don't have a specific treatment and people will require breathing treatments but that's generally not how we treat it. there is a small population of children that require additional treatment, so its really just supportive measures. alyx: the virus can be contagious for a long time.
6:07 am
shaina: developing overnight. kcci has learned the fbi and homeland security are concerned about possible threats against this year's super bowl. an eight page intelligence bulletin was leaked this week, and one insider says drones are one security threat officials will be watching for. officials say people could use drones to disperse something potentially hazardous over the stadium in santa clara, california. right now, officials say there are no specific credible threats, but they are preparing as much as they can for lone wolf attacks. in michigan, governor rick snyder is expected to deliver his state of the state speech today as anger grows over the state's response to flint's water contamination crisis. hundreds of people gathered outside the governor's home monday, calling for his arrest and resignation. this comes as the city is forced to drink bottled or filtered water after high levels of lead were found in their drinking water. some tests have shown elevated blood lead levels in children. and right now, near los angeles, utility crews are working to stop a massive natural gas leak. socalgas now says the leak is too dangerous to let it burn off
6:08 am
a relief well which should be completed by late february. emissions from the leak have been making some residents sick, and several people have left their homes to protect themselves. elizabeth: you probably want to make sure kids have snow boots. metinka: it is already snowing in western iowa but right now super doppler shows the leading edge of the snow from near the steward area to west around greenfield and orient and nearing osceola. the storm is working its way to the east so in the next hour or two you'll be catching snowflakes. in des moines we will catch snowflakes by late this morning and toward noon and we expect it to be all afternoon but very light snow is expected so it will be snowing for several hours but we will only end up with one to three inches across

6:14 am
the wind chill this afternoon will climb above zero and we expect accumulating snow in the metro in the afternoon and by mid afternoon and evening, roads will be covered and slippery. shaina: wanted to show you new video just into the newsroom, a fire engulfing the top floor of paris' famed ritz hotel. it was being renovated, but reports are that the entire top floor is destroyed. no injuries so far. the ritz is where princess diana was staying before she died. monday marked the martin luther king junior holiday and the black lives matter movement staged protests in several big cities across the country. you're looking at video from a protest in minneapolis on the left, where protesters are demanding justice in the police shooting deaths of two black men killed in the last year. on the right, protesters shut down the bay bridge in san francisco during rush hour, demanding the mayor's resignation. traffic was stopped there for at least half an hour.
6:15 am
celebrations of dr. king's life and work all across the country monday. this is the annual wreath laying ceremony by the alpha phi alpha fraternity in birmingham, alabama. this park was the site of many demonstrations during the civil rights movement. this parade in washington, d.c. brought thousands more people together to honor the civil rights leader. people there said it's important to celebrate the progress made so far, and inspire people to continue to work on the civil rights of others. shaina: a lot of people in the metro came together to honor martin luther king as well, remembering his work and hoping to inspire others to continue to fight for the rights of others. >> we are happy to have the community come out from the mayor, to the chief of police, the faith community, and non profits all coming together as greater des moines to celebrate this day not a day off but a day on. shaina: hundreds of community leaders came together for a prayer breakfast at drake university's knapp center. this is the fourth year of the breakfast. it started with a little more than 200 people.

6:17 am
workers. the repot says office and administrative jobs are most at risk. the u.s. postal service has increased rates for its fastest shipping services. prices for priority mail, which delivers in one to three days, jumped nearly 10%. and priority mail express overnight service rose more than 14% on average. the price hikes went into effect late sunday. shaina: gas prices have been falling fast lately but nowhere near as fast as in houghton lake, michigan this weekend. check this out. a price war between two gas stations sent prices as low as $.49 per gallon. more than 5000 people lined up -- 500 people lined up to take advantage of the drastic price cut at both stations. there were so many cars, police had to be called in to direct traffic. prices are back to normal there this morning. right now in the metro, you'll pay about $1.70 per gallon of regular gas. that would be breaking news.
6:18 am
it is probably not another great day to stand outside pumping gas. metinka: it is chilly and we have snow on the way. even down through osceola, light snow working into town as a tracks to the east. only about 20 miles per hour to the southeast so it is still a couple hours away from the des moines area but roads are being affected to the west. especially up from sioux city and to the west in north platte, nebraska, and bismarck. the system will wrap through the midwest with kansas city expecting snow and st. louis could see some as well. futurecast showing by 11:00 a.m., snow will be knocking on our door and the evening commute will be snowy. we will have improving
