there is a new yoga to tell you about that combines beer and cursing. >> never heard of this. it is called rage yoga. it combines conventional poses with unconventional behavior. >> swearing, alcohol all meant to help people relieve frustration. there are three locations in houston, calgaer, and edminuteten. none in the bay area so far. >> sounds like a workout to me. >> i think it would increase my stress. >> well, working in this business and also having kids have had to kind of you know, hold myself in a little. >> oh, shoot. i know that letting it out sometimes help you feel better but as adults, i don't know that
we should do this. make sure the children are not around for rage yoga. let's get you to the news starting in oakland. firefighters in west oakland are at the scene of a deadly house fire that killed an elderly man asleep in a bedroom. >> alyssa herringten is live with more on the story. >> reporter: firefighters are on the roof and in the attic with their chain saws and axes. they are digging into the walls and ceilings to check for any hot spots to make sure the fire is entirely out. we have seen them dumping large pieces of debris out the windows. it is a very difficult scene for friends and family to see this morning. we saw a lot of them showing up shortly after the fire broke out to see what is going on and to check on the family that lived here. family and friends were on the street, hugging and crying. one man who grew up on the street said the same man lived here for decades.
he said the elderly couple was here for about 60 years and their adult children were with them. the fire started around 2:45 this morning at a victorian home on 16th street in oakland. 6 people were inside. only 5 managed to get out. an elderly man was found dead in a bedroom where they believe the fire started. the cause remains under investigation. when emergency crews arrived, flames were shooting out of the windows. they had to call for a second alarm. the agent said the construction of the house said the fire was difficult. having trees on both sides definitely constituted an extra alarm to make sure the fire didn't spread. >> reporter: firefighters were able to knock down the flames pretty quickly. the fire does appear to be out. they are checking the upper floors to make sure that there is nothing else i need to worry about. you can see from the front that this is a very large house.
if we got a view from the side, this is an extremely large house. they say there are multiual bedrooms, bathrooms, an old two story victorian. it was very challenging for them especially with the large trees. they wanted to make sure it did not spread to the neighboring homes. one neighbor told me that she woke up because she saw flickering. she looked out the window and it was just flames several feet high. scary moments for people on the street. again, one elderly man was killed. his name has not been released. alyssa herringten, ktvu. the ghost ship warehouse trial is set to continue in oakland. the first group of prospective jurors will fill out a questionnaire at the alameda courthouse. it takes longer to select a jury in high profile cases but the

voices in the administration are not caderal enough for president trump, you know he has completely lost touch with the american people. >> i think it is unfortunate for secretary nielson. she was caught between a president who wants action and a bunch of democratic leadership in the house who wants 20/20 talking points. >> reporter: the president thanked nielson for her surface on twieter and then stated that kevin mcaleenan will serve as acting secretary. >> he knows the decision. >> reporter: it is not clear if mcaleenan will be the permanent replacement. there are four members of the cabinet who were in acting roles who have now been confirmed. so it is possible that he could do the same for dhs for as long as he can. the trump administration says it needs more time to reunite families that were superated at the southern border. the white house wants two years

sunday in part, god bless them and their families. kimberley endicott and her guide were abducted by gun minute two men in between elizabeth national park on sunday. the man used a phone to demand a ransom. it is unconfirmed if the ransom was paid. uganda wildlife authority is saying this is an isolated incident and the park is open and safe for tourists. however officials say the kidnappers escaped. the investigation into their where abouts is ongoing. >> i think a lot of people are wondering when will the rain be over for the year? it is springtime now. >> so not yet, right? >> you're right. spring showers. we usually get spring showers and that's what is in line for the bay area monday. outside at this hour, mostly

negotiations, the los altos school district agreed to give it to bullis provided they cap the enrollment at $1,000. >> under law, they need facilities, i'm not here to say they are not. that's the law but i don't think they should take over one of our schools. >> reporter: the plans for the school are not finalized just yet. the charter and public school boards plan to have separate meetings. they will take public comment on the idea in the coming meetings. police in oakland and the chp are working to crack down people responsible for side shows including this one that happened in two parts of oakland over the weekend. this is video from 42nd avenue and international boulevard yesterday before the start of the warriors final game in oracle arena for the regular season.

was more development of the units, more rent restricted units would be built and they would carry affordability protections with them. the sun is trying to break through. i can look around. >> it is kind of gray behind us. >> do you think we will get some sun today? >> partly cloudy is expected but maybe some sun breaks. pretty much the entire state is covered in clouds and rain. this is a view across the bay. the high and mid level clouds are with us today. it has improved along the coast, highway 1, a little patchy fog. outside of that, visibility is looking good for the north bay valley locations. today, partly sunny, mostly cloudy day with a chance of showers increasing as we get into the afternoon. the plume of moisture is coming our way. let's take a look from the north
