good morning. i'm eric thomas. at least 30 people are looking for a place to stay after a fire swept through their apartment building. firefighters arrived just before 3:30 to the six-unit building on gene vista street. heavy flames came out of one unit and quickly spread to two more buildings. no injuries have been reported. no cause for the fire reported either. update on the tuesday morning drive with sue hall. >> it's a tough one out there, still very heavy for your tuesday morning commute. a live look at the richmond/san rafael bridge. these are the fastrakers not getting through too fast. elsewhere, we have this problem with a road closure in the calistoga area due to an overturned big rig.
8:28 am
they're saying between 8:30 and 10:30 this morning use alter come happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding.
8:29 am
don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. good morning. temperatures are off the lows, but still in the 30s in many areas. the entire north bay seems like. and los gatos in the 40s. high clouds from time to time. thickest across the north bay. temperature about 5 to 10 degrees warmer than yesterday.
