8:02 am
through northwestern suburbs already they're diminishing. otherwise we should be dry and see some sunshine threw today. your fox future cast does show more sun hopefully breaks out through the afternoon and that should help warm us up at least a little bit. otherwise it's a pretty mice day and as i said temperatures should be into the 40s. by monday, clouds have increased waiting on some showers maybe a sprinkle or two monday night. but then by tuesday, we'll start to see the better chance for some showers move in this is all ahead of storm system that's going to bring rain to us on christmas eve. very different feeling and looking holiday. 28 in pottstown. these are temperatures, air temperatures 32 in philadelphia. 31 in wilmington and 32 in dover. but with no wind we're not really seeing those harsh wind chills. 39 degrees by noon we should rise into the low 40s fall back to 40 degrees with more sunshine later today. lauren and karen. >> thank you so much caitlin. we want to get right back to that breaking news we just told you about at the top of this hour. there's been a deadly fire overnight in claymont, delaware.

>> the fire broke out just after 2:00 o'clock this morning. one family is mourning the loss of a loved one days before christmas. several others are left without a place to live. brad satin joins us live now from the scene. good morning, brad. >> reporter: good morning, karen and lauren. very sad story here as you mentioned. one person did lose their life. we know a second person was injured taken to christiana hospital. we know firefighters left the scene only about 20 minutes ago after arriving here a little bit after 2:00 a.m. i'll step out of the way and take a look what is left just kind of a burned out shell of the building here as you see. you mentioned this fire started 2:00 a.m. a two alarm blaze took about 78 firefighters to put this fire out. spoke to a neighbor a short time ago who showed us some cell phone video that she shot. we want to show that to you. shot a little after 2:00 o'clock this morning. red cross has a total of 10 families out of their homes. a total of 17 people displaced. the red cross now in the process of helping them to relocate. of course we mentioned days
8:04 am
before christmas. this fire started we heard in the third floor. no word and a cause at this point but it spread according to the fire chief within minutes. the entire building engulfed. let's hear now from one of the neighbor who's shot that cell phone video. >> oh, my god just flames everywhere. everywhere. i have so many pictures and videos i just feel so bad. four days before christmas. >> the only issue that, you kn know, prevalent right now the fire was well advanced prior to us getting here. so with that said, we're playing catch up the entire time. >> reporter: again the fire department leaving just a short time ago but you could see that fire is still smoulderring from the third floor. you could see it coming up into the sky there. but again the fire out. the fire marshal is still on the scene as we mentioned, again, one person killed, one person injured. we're told with non-life threatening injuries taken techies chi anna hospital. we'll monitor this through the
8:05 am
day to try to get some more information on the one person who lost their life. guys, back to you. >> all right. , brad thank from you that sad news to some more sad news this out of new york city. they are mourning their after an ambush style attack on those two men officers with the new york city police department. new york's finest gunned down in what that city's police commissioner called an assassination. the two men officers wenjian lou and raphael ramos killed by a gunman who took his own life. they were just sitting in their patrol car. investigators say the officers were shot in the head at point blank range. they say the gunman ran inside a nearby subway station after the shooting and then shot and killed himself. new york city mayor expressing his outrage. >> these officers were shot execution style. particularly despicable act which goes at the very heart of our society. >> the suspect is believed to be a gang member from baltimore
8:06 am
just hours earlier police say he shot and seriously injured his ex-girlfriend before driving up there to new york. the shooter reportedly boasted about his plan on instagram and referenced the deaths of garner and brown two innocent black men killed by white police officers saying i'm putting wings on pigs today. they take one of ours, let's take two of theirs. president obama is on vacation in hawaii and released this statement overnight. he said in part "two brave men will not be going home to their loved ones tonight and for that there is no justification. the officers who serve and protect our communities risk their own safety for us every single day and they deserve our respect and gratitude every single day ". >> since that shooting, nypd lives matter is now trending on twitter with posts from people all over the world offering condolences to those fallen officers and their families. so many people calling for an end to all of the violence. our coverage on this story is
8:07 am
continuing online. we fine out a lot more information throughout the day. come right to our website also knew this morning there's a man under arrest accused of firing his gun at police in philadelphia's mayfair section. this happened just after midnight on the 4400 block of cottman avenue. police say a fight started inside a bar and when officers arrived, someone shot at them. the officers were not hurt, didn't not fire their weapons back. >> and we all know just how powerful social media can be and this morning a life is on the line your on life support could help save it. the tweets you see on the bottom of your screen part of the #save bella campaign. who is bella you ask? well this is bella, a healthy nine-year-old german shepherd whose life could soon come to an end. the issue, bella's owner recently passed away. according to her will, the owner wants bella to be put down and buried with her. well bella was set to be euthanized earlier this week but her owner's attorney says there's another option in the
8:08 am
will if enough money can be raised bella's owner said the dog could be sent to a no kill sanctuary in i was tam for now bella is safe while supporter try to come up with that money. joining us on skype attorney heather hanson. heather we want to start with our viewer comments. hundreds of people had something to say about this on our own facebook page. shawna writes anyone who truly loves their pet would never choose to have it euthanized over letting someone a doubt and give it a loving home forest of its life. this disgusts me. meghan says, it's her dog, if that's what she wants it's nobody's business or place to say otherwise. sarah simply asked, how is this legal? heather, where do you stand on this issue when you hear all of these points? >> well meghan said it's dog and she can do what she wants and under the law that is sort of true. dogs and animals, pets are considered property, and therefore one disposes of them in their will. however, there's also some other laws that talk about the human treatment of animals.
8:09 am
you sort of have to balance the two. here what this owner wanted to do is completely legal. however, it appears as though given there's two options, one seems much more humane to push to put bella in no kill shelter. >> it seems we're able to buy some time and try to raise money. as a pet owner myself it seems to me slightly selfish for the owner but as you said, it's her will and this is what she wants. >> we kind of have to honor that. >> not only that, but there are other competing interests here. it appears that bella has has history of aggressive behavior and i think to give the own are in fairness here, she was afraid that the dog would be put with someone and then ultimately put to sleep in any event. and she had hoped that bella would be placed with her. if bella is placed in a no kill shelter shell be in perfect hands and it will be the perfect result. the law has sort of got to catch up with our attitude towards animals and to make sure that we're protecting them in this type of way. i think it's going to open up so many discussions and people have their opinions on this either way.
8:10 am
heather, thank you so much for your perspective. >> thanks, lauren v great day. you too. merry christmas! >> you too. >> let us know what you think. do you think that the opener is right what she left if her will or do you have another opinion. use the #fox 29 weekend. >> lauren people are doing that right now all over our facebook page. we'll get to some of those comments in just a matter of seconds. turn that around. sony hackers are at it once again. the message they have for the fbi right now. plus also we love that you talk with us all morning long. keep your cell phones out and make sure you have this conversation with us but after the show, you may want to put them away because there could be a problem. this morning we're taking your music requests. brian wanted to hear this one, happy holidays by steve lawrence. let us know what you want to hear. you got to use that #fox 29 he can weaned. in response to our story about bella. doing should be adopter out when bella passes her ashes can be united with her previous owner. she is just a beaut team thank you very much for that comment. ♪

>> so many of us last night went to bed and woke up this morning to what many of you are calling an eagles hangover. it's really simply heartbreak. eagles fans are still stunned and disappointed after the birds failed to win a must win game against the redskins.
8:15 am
eagles fall 27-24 now. the cowboys have to lose their last two games and the eagles have to beat the giants next week. if those three things do not happen, there will be no post season. >> so many of you are tweeting about it. we're so sad. take a look at the headlines 8:15. the united states is now asking china for help to battle north korea's hacking of sony systems because north korea's internet traffic actually goes through china. north korea says it is being framed and had nothing to do with the hack and yesterday hackers released a new statement calling the fbi idiots. near death experience caught on dash cam. we've got a fed ex truck crashing into a georgia state police patrol car narrowly missing -- the officer there. he was just trying to make routine traffic stop on the side of the road always dangerous when that truck game barreling through and hit the officer's car. fortunately here's the big headline he is okay. but the fed he can driver did
8:16 am
have to be airlifted to the hospital. we don't know the extent of his injuries. >> lauren? >> all righty. it's that time to head back outside and take a look at our interactive weather. i know some people are not even thinking about going outside today, caitlin, they're just inside sad and still like, devastated about the eagles. >> oh yes, i know. well if you just can't imagine to get out of bed or from underneath those covers we totally understand and sympathize with you. it is another cold morning but as we take a live view of residents, new jersey, there camera not shaking too much. it's not windy and we should see some more sunshine later today. and today is officially first day of winter the winter solstice curse later this afternoon at 60:00 3:00 p.m. shortest day of the year as we get the least amount of daylight by a minute once we head towards tomorrow we gain a minute of daylight each day so that kind of helps maybe take the edge off the fact that winter is here although it's not going to feel very wintry the next couple of days. here's why. ultimate doppler showing clear skies right now. we have a lot of cloud cover to overcome again. but i think we have a better
8:17 am
shot seeing some sunshine today. 24 in the poconos, good weekend for the slopes. 28 in pottstown. 32 in philly and 32 in dover. your seven day forecast 42 degrees more sun later this afternoon but then the clouds quickly return monday. showers are around on tuesday but look at those temperatures soar into the 60s by wednesday. that's christmas eve. it will be a mild but rainy and breezy maybe even a stormy christmas eve although luckily that won't deter santa at all. he can move in any weather. early showers on thursday christmas morning we should clear out and look at a nice weekend friday and saturday. >> in your health this morning, our furry friends are just like family, right? traveling means including them in the plan. now do you find a place you trust to keep your fur baby or they hitting the road with you? beth galvin has all the answers and joins us this morning. beth, we'll start with our first question from evelyn who says, help! i have to board my dog bella for the very first time over christmas break. i have no idea what to look for. beth? she needs answers.
8:18 am
>> reporter: that's great question. lauren first of all i would suggest asking for your friends whom they trust with their pet when they leave town or else going online and really reading reviews of the kennels and boarding facilities in your ar area. most important, though, go there and visit and take a tour and see what it's like and see how you feel about it. get a feel for the staff. do they seem caring? do they seem attentive? >> do they seem competent? ask them a lot of questions. how often will my dog be taken out? will you give my dog medication that the dog might need? you know, will all the animals be in a common area together during the daytime having a play time? all of those issues you want to kind of work out so that you've got a really good comfort level and you have somebody that you can trust with your pet so you can go on vacation and not worry about it. >> okay. let's get to our second question, beth. robin writes my two dogs or rio and and cookie get nervous when i take them to strange place. i'm worried about traveling to my in laws over the holidays
8:19 am
with them. how can i make sure they're going to be okay? one of these places use cameras now, don't they? yes. a lot of the kennels use camer cameras. if you're taking your pet with you, there's some things you flood to think about on the road. so first of all i would make sure that you've got your pets restrained in the back either with a seat belt or they're in some kind of a kennel that they can actually get up and turn around in but keeps them in a confine space. you want them in the back seat and you want to really be careful when you're taking pitt stops at those rest areas that you're careful getting in and out of the vehicle because that's the time when the pet can be at risk of getting loose, make sure they're staying on their leash in the rest area. not getting -- getting away from you, and then just make sure in case anything happens and you lose your pet you want to make sure that your pet's gone on a collar with all of your contact information on there. and it's a good idea to take a picture of your pet print it out, take it with you just in case so that if you lose your pet, you can get that picture out to every, you know, local
8:20 am
vet and shelter so you too can get back together. lauren. >> beth, thanks so much. happy holidays. hope you and joy your christmas. thank you, you too lauren. >> if you have pictures of your fur babies like this one here check out diamond she's on the plane you can always send those to us use the #fox 29 weekend. >> all right. the year is coming to close. we would like to know how do you describe this last year in just five words? it's been trending on twitter. we'll share some of your answers coming up next. >> plus, check this out. a boot on your car. well what this woman did when she saw that and now she's facing some charges. >> all right, karen last night i had the pleasure of judging an ugly sweater contest to benefit the leukemia and lymphoma society. this is a picture from last night. the judges to my left miss -- 13. marissa producer for the preston and steve show and iain crumb and the winner, check it out. i picked him, karen. >> good one. ugly sweater 2014. nick is his name.

and the story behind he stole it from his girlfriend's father. stash it away in his basement and decided to pull it out yesterday. he won an employee discount at city tap house for one year thanks to them for hosting the event it was a great time last night. >> it look like a fun time. i saw your pictures on instagr instagram. also right now we're listening to do you hear what i hear by whitney houston? i love this version. stacey wanted to hear this one. thank you stacey. let us know what you want to hear in our weekend juke bock use the #fox 29 weekend. ♪ >> holiday time is family time but what do you do the other 50 week of the year? parents, are you sneaking looks at your smart phone you probably didn't need science to tell you that you do and you probably don't need science to tell you that it's not the best thing for your kids. but researchers went ahead and looked into it any way.
8:22 am
new research in the journal of academic pediatrics says mom who's check their phones don't talk or interact as much with their kids. our dr. mike says this study might seem silly, but moms need to listen up. >> in a study looking at moms using smart phones while they're eating dinner with their children found no great surprise that their children were being ignored. this is a big problem. you really need a technology free time when you have dinner. this has long term consequences in terms of kids interacting with you as well as society. you also want to make sure that they are eating the right kinds of food. ♪ >> so, mom and dads out there, this study may sound silly but dr. mike always has smart advice

>> hi, i'm barbara king at the barn at valley forge flowers with this week's around the house. steven coevals tweeted us can i decorate my house with holidays without damaging my walls, mantle and doors? none us want to destroy the windows of or the walls with hammering nails into the doors or the walls. so there's lots of solutions out there and the hardware store is one of my best friends this time of year. they have so many gadgets that i love to peruse through like i found this one this morning. ooh love this. this is a hook that fits into your siding. you can hang something right on the siding with ease. love this one. the command strips, there's all differ types of command strips out there. there's even ones for your doors because they really don't work as well in the cold weather but they do have a new one out there that works up to i think it's 40 or down to 40 or 50 degrees.
8:50 am
so make sure if you're using the indoor ones use them indoors because they will fall on the outside. now, it is pretty cold out there. it's going to get colder than 50 degrees. this is one of the perfect solutions. it's the over the door wreath hanger. you just want to be careful of the width of your door. if your door is real wide, this is not going to work. so we have a solution for those doors that are real wide. and i think this just looks so festive and old school looking christmas is just a big fat thick piece of ribbon that you want to double up and just measure to whatever cut length you would like your wreath to hang and cut your ribbon to whatever length is going to look best for your wreath on your door, and then fold it over about 2-inches. that gives it extra support. so we're going to slip it
8:51 am
through this wreath, then fold it over 2-inches two times going to give it a nice firm base and then you're going to take thumb tax just make sure they're the flat head thumb tax and you're going to thumb tack it into the top of your door. so none of the mechanic are seen and they're hidden really well and nobody is going to yell at you then for putting that big nail hole in the door. if you have any questions you want answered, tweet us at #fox 29 weekend
