mirror beach allegedly full, according to the sign, but in actuallity is locked up and empty, forcing those soaking in the last days of 2018 into traffic jams and fender benders on crumbling marin roads. >> it's ridiculous with how many tours there are this time of year and how beautiful of a day it is. it's kind of ridiculous they're shutting down the parking lot and causing such a huge traffic jam. >> leaving cars ditched in neighborhoods. >> a lot of people are parking in no parking areas. the neighborhood neighbors are being a lot more, like, lenient, because they usually get really angry if we park there. >> reporter: other places like mirror woods were crowded, but relatively pain- free. while other hot spots were open, minus the bathrooms. now, we noticed today, when we were heading back from marin county back here to san francisco, the parking lot at the marin head lands are also closed.
and at other parks, national parks, joshua tree in particular, there have been piles of trash piling up. so the park service and the government is asking you to pack in and pack out everything to these parks during the shut downs so they don't get too trashed while no one is here to clean it up. live in san francisco, andrea borba, kpix 5. >> thanks so much. a space heart is being blamed for the castro valley house fire. it belonged to a family of three. they made it out all right, but their two dogs did not. the fire broke out just before 6 this morning. it was put out about 20 minutes. still firefighters say the first floor of the house was completely destroyed, and the second floor was badly damaged. well, police need your help in identifying a suspect. take a good look at this man. he is wanted for robbery and attempted murder. san francisco police released these surveillance photos of the suspect. in one of them, it appears the suspect actually stalked it happened on cero
