6:33 am
them to that conclusion and again the information we just learned is that according to a spokesperson for the sonoma county sheriffs office what they are saying now is that they have nobody in custody in connection with this death and they are also not looking for anybody in connection with this death. but an investigation still active here at this home. dave. >> so there is still a whole lot we just don't know and we will check back with you a little bit later on. thank you. time is 6:33. deputies in pittsburgh searching for the person responsible for a deadly shooting that happened on highway 4 and we are learning more about the victim. tomas mendez was killed on saturday. he crashed after someone fired shots at the car he was driving. he was a cook at the popular katy's corner restaurant. his friends say he was trying to provide a better life for his two-year-old daughter, his step dour, and girlfriend. >> it has been devastating.

the san jose city council will vote whether top permit uber, lift, and other ride sharing companies to pick up passengers at the airport. right now they are only allowed to do drop offs but the airport says it wants to be a leader in the industry and make services convenient for travelers. these type of companies have grown in popularity and seen as a cheaper alternative to taxis. last year sfo permitted uber and other companies. we asked passengers what they think. >> i would use it. i think more choices are always better. i mean it's sometimes difficult to get a cab. >> drivers would need go through fingerprinting, vehicle infections and fees. the proposal has caused a big upset. they are concerned they will go out of business because of the competition. they do face stricter regulations and do pay higher

6:37 am
chain saws. the preliminary information on the investigation at this point according to firefighters is that this was some type of welding accident. we are hearing the man inside the garage was welding a gas tank on to the car. that is when the fire got started. sources say the man again did have second and third degree burns to his torso. he also lives at the home with his wife and a cat. both of them were able to get out of the home safely. we understand they are doing okay. but as we take you back out here live the fire reached two alarms, came dangerously close to another home here in vallejo. but luckily no other homes were damaged. as you can see lots of damage to this home. again in the 400 block. guys back to you. >> all right brian flores, thank you. we'll talk to you later. time is 6:37. home rental prices nationwide they are up more than 4% according to zillow but the biggest price hikes believe it or not are not here in the bay area. they are high but not here.
