at an east bay junkyard started accidentally. firefighters were called to the deal auto wrecking yard yesterday morning. they say flames destroyed 100 cars and sent a huge plume of thick, black smoke into the air and across the bay. a stretch of the richmond parkway was closed because of the fire. near residents were told to "shelter in place," stay in their homes for close to three hours. >> wash everything down. my car was totally covered with soot. i had to wash everything in the driveway. it might be a health hazard. >> it was an accident but no cause determined yet. no injuries. we have more now on a developing story we reported at the top of our newscast at 7:00. flames raced through a home this morning in south san francisco. let's go back out to reporter christien kafton, who is at the scene with an update. christien, what have you learned? >> reporter: yeah, good morning, allie, good morning, frank. we are getting new details about the fire. we are getting the first look at the front of the house.
7:35 am
you can see the level of devastation the charring and burning. south san francisco fire cheer jerry coleman joining us now to give us a few details about this. he said the fire started around 4:30 this morning and it really got thick fast. >> fire was notified around 4:30 this morning. two ways. we had 911 callers into the community occasions as well as we had one of the occupants drive to the fire station and notify our crew. >> reporter: to give a sense, we're located very close to the fire station right now. so she was able to get out of the home and get to you quickly? >> yeah. we're on an uphill section just above the fire station. so line of flight it's about 200 yards. driving there's kinds of a circular street that takes you down to the fire station. >> reporter: we understand there was one minor injury treated here at the scene otherwise everybody is okay? >> yeah. there's one injury to one of the occupants, there was 4 occupants to the home. that occupant was valuated by a paramedic on our fire engine. >> reporter: you have an idea
7:36 am
on where the fire may have started. not exactly, because you're working to determine exactly what happened, but as i understand it, it may have started at the front of the home? >> absolutely. still early in the investigation wants to look at it deeper but right now it appears the bulk of the fire, the fire started in the early part of the fire was towards the front of the home possibly the garage. >> reporter: finally, there's no indication that this was caused by a candle or by christmas lights or anything like that, but we were talking off camera a moment ago and we said, it's an opportune time to remind people there are some warnings that people should remember as they get ready for christmas. >> we have a family of four here displaced so it's never a good time to have a fire. it's always a tragedy. but here in the holiday season, when you have extra combustibles, packages, gift wrapping, decorations, out standing time to make sure you don't have open flames come in contact with those, may seem obvious but it does happen. soakedly, is check your smoke detectors. that -- secondly, is check your smoke detectors.
7:37 am
that should be happen all year round every month. >> thank you very much, appreciate it. the fire appears to be largely under control. just a couple of minutes ago, though, we did see a bucket they are putting water ton checking for hot spots -- on it, checking for hot spots. they are backing some of their resources off. from what we understand now, the fire started around 4:30 an incredible story of the homeowner getting into her car and driving around the corner and actually banging on the door of the fire station there to alert them about the fire. you sat big flames, frank and allie. a very serious situation. no injuries. >> glad to hear the resident got out safely and quick thinking, she just went to the fire station. >> christien, that firehouse is a couple blocks away so that fire must have been fully engulfed to do all that damage. >> reporter: yeah. frank, it's tough to tell from this vantage point but you can see this home right here, literally right on the back side of that home, if you go right down slope, the fire
7:38 am
station is right there. so as the crow flies maybe 200 yards. very, very close. but from what we understand, again, from the chief, who just briefed us, the resident drove down this road around the corner to go and alert firefighters but they also had the 911 call so they were out here quickly but you saw how big the flames were. >> glad no one was hurt and it didn't spread. thank you. now to the latest on the investigation into the oakland warehouse fire. a city official tells the east bay times that the owner of that warehouse filed for a business license in 1995. but firefighters and inspectors never examined the property. the city says it is now looking to resolve what it called a communications breakdown between city agencies. the east bay times reports firefighters may be allowed to review the city's business license database as soon as monday. 36 people died two weeks ago in what's believed to be an electrical fire at the

7:40 am

today is the 18th anniversary of the death of rick did ivecky. on this day he was hit and killed by a driver of a cadillac. and joining us this morning is rick's brother randy to talk more about what happened and where this case is so many years later. good morning. good to have you in, randy. >> good morning. >> let's talk about your brother first. he was 37 when it happened. so he'd be in his mid 50s. >> that's correct. >> what was your brother like?
8:50 am
>> it sounds so clis dumb but he was a great person. he really did things on his own by himself z. he helped people without being asked. he was just a genuine person. >> and i mentioned it's been tough not having closure 18 years strong. >> that's the biggest thing. it's been 18 years and peace and closure is literally all we're looking for. why did this happen. why did the guy take the car and hit my brother. >> let's talk about that. a trucking business in berkley. he saw someone prowling in the car and just took a look. >> basically what happened is there were a lot of petty thefts in the area and we assumed the person that did this because the petty thefts pretty much stopped. but what happened was there was
8:51 am
somebody in the back of his pickup truck and he went across the street to see what was going on. and by that time a person was driving at a low rate of speed but something made this guy hit the accelerator and swerve halfway across the street and swerve back. >> now your brother survived for a few days, three days in the hospital. >> yeah. >> was he able to communicate with police at all? >> not at all. basically they were just looking for the swelling of the brain to come down and it didn't it kept going further and further but there is a description out of whoever may have done this. >> there is. a couple years after the fact we actually had a person that would see visions. he was the one that witnessed what happened he'd see little visions and one of the police officers from the san jose police department was able to do
8:52 am
a repressed memory sketch. and when the sketch was done it actually looked like a person and that's the sketch that people are looking at to try to find out who this person was. >> any leads at all 18 years later? i know it's a cold case and you guys need closure. >> yeah, not that i know of. i know bpd's looking for anybody that has information to give them a lead to look at. but like i said 18 years later it's really difficult because the investigators that worked on the case originally they've either retired, moved on, or passed away. so it kind of gets passed down until whoever's working the case gets it passed down and that could be a good thing. >> and that's kind of the hope. we have hope that somebody's going to come forward at some point. not hopeful somebody's going to have this weighing on them and give a confession. >> but you never know. >> but we're hoping that
8:53 am
somebody says something and we can't believe this is the smartest crook in the world. >> and your brother lives on because he was an organ donor. >> yeah, and that's why we have to live with the fact that he was buried on christmas eve. we always spend our christmas eve at the cemetery. first it became a hit and run then it became a homicide and then it became a donor. and by that time it was christmas eve. and we did find out that his heart was given away and his lungs and all these different. so there's about six other people that are living. >> goodness out there. >> six other people living because of him. >> it's awfully tough and he had two step kids. how is the family? >> i think the family is doing the best that they can. it changes your life forever. we all take into the fact we have each other. >> the important thing is to keep it the public eye and maybe someone will step forward and maybe they'll find a lead.
8:54 am
>> yeah, and that's fortunate that i work here and i kind of know how the media works and the more that it's out there it takes one person to see it and say i remember that. thank you so much. >> thanks for coming in. let's kick it over to allie and mark as we've got a little weather to talk about. before that we're going to talk about some star wars fans and what they did last night. they headed to san francisco's mission bay to attend the opening of the star wars movie rogue one. >> i wanted to come out and see what was happening. l. >> a light hearted slow battle happened at the spark social food bank. the organizers had to rename the event and previously called it a light saber battle but they had to change that after a copy right from lucas films. and for many movie goers this weekend the movie is all about

8:57 am
spirit help them heal by having those important life experiences. so even if they're here inside the hospital during the holidays we want to make sure that santa is still part of their experience. >> was there anything on your christmas list today. >> santa also made special visits to the kids who were too sick to get out of bed. this is the ultimate photobomb pick. a bob cat caught on camera i don't ever looking the golden gate bridge. by photographer steve winter. it almost looks like it could have been photoshopped but it's not it's real. just be sure to include the hashtag ktvu. you could see your picture. >> hike around. i'm going to keep my eyes peeled now. >> i wonder if that camera had to have been on the timer or something. a late night shooting at a

9:15 am
of pepper and then you just stir it up. here you want to stir it for me. so you stir that up and then it's ready to go you can put it in the fridge and just assemble these right before the party otherwise the toast can get a little soggy. >> and crab is a great item to work with this year. >> it's very seasonal. very fresh. it's local and everybody loves it. >> definitely. what's over here? >> so the next one is a smoked salmon wrapped around goat cheese and chives and taragon. we call this the claw. it protects your finger tips and you want to, the tip of your knife should be hitting the cutting board. so the tip of your knife is connected to the cutting board and you're rotating it in just a very oval sort of thing and then have you these beautiful little

chives. >> why is it important to cut it that way? >> it's professional and it looks fancy. so we've got those little balls of goat cheese and the strips of salmon. >> can you buy the goat cheese. >> no we just scoop them and then you just dip them into the chives. >> you might be able too. they don't have to be perfect little balls. don't let perfect be the enemy of perfect. >> people suffer from trying to make things perfect. >> when it comes to food i don't even try. >> you're perfect then. >> our last item over here. >> fritatta with brown butter and sage. >> that sounds a little more complicated. >> people like to cook. it's fun. it's relaxing. here's a great tip on this fritatta. we've got grated cheddar and you put the cheese on the pan and
9:17 am
you start out with the cheese and what that does is once it's all done the cheese allows it to come right off the pan. it oils your pan. >> so this is great. and then you've got these yams or sweet potatoes that we've preroasted. >> and then on top. >> and then there's the charm caramelized onions and then you use your fingers and then this mix. >> how long do you bake that? >> this is going to take about 20 minutes in the oven at 325. and all you do is this is a mix of cream and eggs. and then you just pour this over the top. >> and then bake it? >> and then bake it in the oven for about 20, maybe 25 minutes just until the center's just set and then you let it cool and you
9:18 am
cut it into little squares and you can serve it warm if you want. it's really good at room temperature as well. >> but the recurring theme of all of these is that you can make it in advance. >> absolutely. make a head . serve at room temperature and relax and have a good time. because if you're not having a good time at your party it doesn't set the tone that you want to set. you want to be there with the music on ready to greet your guests. >> from the hospitality expert him. we're going to have all those recipes posted online. frank send it back to you. >> it was delicious. i did a little snooping. a little foodery there. we have weather and we're looking to taste that as well frank coming up in a little bit. here's our live camera looking at the santa fel bay ridge. the winds backed off the toefrps really dropped off rapidly last night and expecting the same
