>> catherine:a young woman whose boyfriend was killed in oakland's ghost ship fire says a precious photo has been found - after she asked for help on social media. saya tomioka's boyfriend - griffin madden - was on of the 36-people killed last friday. they'd met at u-c berkeley. when she learned of his death - she posted on facebook hoping to find the photographer who took their picture kissing in new york city's times square. more than 300-shares later.a social media miracle happened.and the photographer posted the photos. tomioka says she's at peace.adding "with help from our family, friends, and strangers.i finally found you." i love this story. people all around the bay area are coming together to show love and support for the vicitms and their families following the devestating warehouse fire. a group from the henry and henry adult day care center made a poster covered with warm wishes and signatures from people living in oakland's lower hills neighborhood. they walked the streets together.and shared how it has been hard to see people in their area hurting after the tragedy last friday night.

5:25 pm
it occurred to me that a lot of people don't know much about fire safety and i looked online and there weren't many videos showing how to be safe in case of a fire so i wanted to create one. the four minute video is aimed at those putting on an improvised venue event to do so in a safe manner. candles with fabric nearby may look very beautiful but can be a disaster. as people who are heading up communities and creating events for our communities, to just make the events safer. we wanted to create a quick and easy resource for improvised venues. what we're hoping when people see it now bookmark it and in six months when they're throwing a party a week before they are watching the video. before the event check each fire extinguisher, but more than fire safety these producers hope that their effort will spur a conversation to prevent what they see as a move to evict artist communities from other warehouse arts collectives. evictions are not the answer and i hope that city officials and landlords work together so that we are not kicking people into the streets. i think this video is a piece of it and i think it does show that we're willing to mobilize and we're willing to respond and safety is a top concern for us because the last thing we want is for something to happen to our friends in our communities. in oakland jeff pierce kron four news. to learn more about 'party fire safety' and to watch the full p- s-a. we have posted a link on our website kron four dot com. >> steve:and tonight, we are remembering those who died in the ghost ship warehouse fire. as we've mentioned -- this is the one-week anniversary of the tragedy..

doesn't burden taxpayers. *but in today's release, no specific dollar amounts were announced. the only numbers reported so far have come from the san francisco chronicle. it announced last week that this entire plan will be funded by 600-million dollars from lott's group, 200-million from the nfl, 300-million from raiders owner mark davis, and 200-million dollars of public money to pay for infrastructure. mayor schaaf said this about the agreement. *she said quote-- this term sheet agreement puts oakland in the running to keep the raiders in a way that is responsible to the team, the league, the fans and the taxpayers," "everything the city and county and the investor team is doing is about putting forward the best offer to encourage the raiders ownership and the nfl to keep the raiders in oakland, where the team belongs." now turning our focus to the actual team--

raider nation.reeling today.after the silver and black wilted in primetime last night against the chiefs. and in the process-- lost its top standing in the division. derek carr.had his worst game of the season, and probably of his career.in the frozen arrowhead conditions. and an offense that's been so explosive all year.looked completely out of sync. carr threw for 117-yards.on 17- of-41 passing, which is the 2nd lowest output in nfl history when a quarterback has at least 40 pass attempts. the strongest evidence of his struggles came in the 4th quarter when he and amari cooper.missed on a wide open connection. and then again on the final play, when his lob to seth roberts was batted away. carr addressed his off night we could see it was cold at the game last night, but here's a real icy exchange that got a lot of people talking. h the broadcast showed this awkward postgame encounter between coach del rio and chiefs head coach andy reid. jdr is glaring at him.while reid taps him on the shoulder. this was a topic for national sports shows.and publications. but, del rio made sure to
6:49 pm
downplay there is any animosity. he tweeted today-- that there 'nothing personal between them. andy is a good man and good coach. they earned a hard fought victory last night. on to next. go raiders.' and reid has also said that he didn't take offense to it >>: how much was the weather play a factor and we typically do. and we will have better days for sure doing that.
