transmission of the disease can happen by eating food prepared by an infected food handler or direct person to person contact. we spoke to a long-term customer of maurice san juan. >> i like the food. it was really good. it's really hard to find a good seafood place. and this is one of the spots. it's been around here for years. >> reporter: were you surprised? >> yeah. >> reporter: county health officials say there are many more people who became ill and not reported it yet. they want to stop the spread offish goal la. she goal la lasts 5-7 days and usually treated with antibiotics.

the road was blocked, traffic came to a halt. there was a car that caught on fire in that picture. it was one of the cars damaged by a fence that fell from an overcrossing. allie rasmus is live in oakland where caltrans crews this morning are trying to figure out what caused this fence to fail. allie. >> reporter: brian, that investigation is still under way. no answer about how all this started. we can show you 1278 hours after it happened what is left here. this is the 23rd street overcrossing over 880. on the left side off in the distance, you can see where there is a chain link fence that is still there. on the southern side it used to have a chain link fence just like that. that is the fence that fell. the sidewalk will remain closed in further notice. you can tell this overcrossing has been reopened to traffic.
7:06 am
let's show you up close video. the fence that used to line the southern side of the overpass is completely gone. it's now a straight 25-foot drop to the freeway below. yesterday without any warning it broke off and fell on to the 880 traffic below. it happened around 6:30. the falling debris sparked a car fire but luckily the man inside that car fire was able to escape without any injury. a total of eight cars were damaged but no one had life threatening injuries. >> it's a freak accident and every single person were just relieved they walked away from it alive. they were pretty shaken up by the nature of what happened. and by the amount of cars that were involved in it. >> reporter: even the veteran

7:37 am
funded campaign machine. >> he is gap prone and he doesn't have the money or the infrastructure that hillary clinton has in place. so this is not a winning proposition. >> a new washington post poll shows hillary clinton's popularity is surging after his performance. the survey gives her 54% of the support followed by 23%. republicans will reknew their efforts to persuade paul ryan to become the next house speaker. congress returns to capitol hill after a week long recess. republicans will meet tonight to rye to talk to the wisconsin representative for accepting the house representative. ryan is willing to take the job but will not be pressured into making concessions to different wings of the party. republicans will hold their convention at quickens loan arena. in the past like in the 2012 convention in tampa, newspapers

7:41 am
san francisco's police chief greg suhr held a meeting to discuss a deadly officer involved shooting. the shooting happened last
7:42 am
thursday. two officers approached 27-year- old herbert for throwing glass bottles into a construction site. when he wouldn't stop they tried to arrest him. the chief said the officer would have been shot or killed if his partner hadn't shot or killed binee tas. part of san jose known for desirable schools and neighborhoods is now dealing with a growing homeless issue. camp cambrian is an area where they have been parking their rvs. city leaders agree the homeless situation is is a critical issue. some say they want a safe place to park and not be harassed. >> specially on the holidays when community centers and libraries are closed. where else are we supposed to go? >> i have no concern with them raising this concern. the situation is not one we should be accommodating so they
7:43 am
have every right to be upset about the lack of reaction. >> city officials say there are more than 4,000 homeless people living in san jose. in addition to building affordable housing, the city hopes to launch a safe parking program with 30 spots for people to live within their vehicles. san francisco offered big tax breaks to big tech companies. but did they help or hurt the city? pam cook is back in the studio. >> it's being called the twitter tax break. san francisco mayor ed lee says it helps to attract and keep companies from moving out of the city. critics say it's too much. the san francisco chronicle reports that businesses in the cities mid market area have avoided millions of dollars in payroll taxes because of this tax break. the cities controller office says that amounted to $34 million. basically the tax break is given to companies that move into the mid market district. it allows them to cap their payroll taxes for six years.
7:44 am
but the chronicle reports that break ran into the millions because the city includes stock options in its payroll calculations. that means it's losing out for twitter and other companies that go public during that six year cap. supporters tell the paper although the city lost $34 million in taxes, it gained thousands of dollars and a boost to the economy from those workers. that it would not have seen if twitter had moved to another city. now according to the article, six companies qualified for that program last year but that is down from 11 in 2013. but of course this story has so many aspects. we talk about companies moving in. what it does verses what it does not do and it also effects the living cost. a lot of neighborhoods don't want the big companies moving this because then the workers drive the rents up. it's a big issue that puts people in the city and businesses all at odds. >> absolutely. thank you, pam.

8:15 am
the freeway. i was on the other side. and we lost the one side of the freeway and then it eventually jumped over and we were fighting fire on the other side. >> as we look at how the area has changed in the past 24 years, a lot of people rebuilt. i'm guessing a lot of people that live in that burned out area have no recollection. they probably weren't there. is there a sense of complacency? >> we were saying you need to be vigilant. that is the message to both sides of the equation. that we need to enforce fire code so that it's a safer area and to the residents we need to enforce fire code. this is not a come around once a year and mow your lawn type of thing. this is is a constant keep defendable space. cut the property back 30 feet. look for lighter fuel. it's an ongoing effort. >> has fire fighting changed

8:17 am
allowed into their own neighborhoods and they are starting a process i'm guessing you both say will take many years to fulfill. >> it does. but there are organizations out there that help homeowners advocate with their insurance companies. to make sure you get everything you are entitled to. you have to replace every last thing. every last pillow case, pot holder, spoon, fork. it's a huge task to rebuild a home. not just the structure but the things in it. >> right. and i'm sure deputy chief you would tell us never to double park when you are in the oakland hills. when you see something smoldering, report it. >> we will turn out for whatever we get called for. so once again i mean i keep going back the individual lens. people immediate to remain aware. keep their head on a swivel. look for things out of place. look for cars that are parked illegally. >> keep those roads accessible.
