5:01 am
a small town, more than 4,500 structures are threatened. a number of firefighters from the bay area have sent help to battle the fire. roughly the size of chicago. crews have the fire just 7% contained. >> nothing but a tough one. jay gray is live in tow ol me county with more from the front lines, a difficult one to battle back. >> reporter: jon and laura, good to talk to you this morning. it continues to be a struggle. really right now you can see the fire crews behind me lined up, all hoping to protect the small town tha you talk about that could be in the path of these flames. right now the firefighters here getting a bit of a brief break, a few hours' rest, try to get a little food and get back on the line to help here. the fire continues to spread in all directions and continues to grow. that's the concern of firefighters up and down the
5:02 am
line as they continue to attack this from the air, on the ground, dig containment lines. as you have discussed, containment not the primary focus right now. protection is. they're trying as best they can to protect all the structures across this mountainous region. the terrain very difficult, the wind gusting at times over 40 miles an hour. it's really making it a tough go for these firefighters who are continuing to work around the clock. to this point they've lost 11 homes, 23 structures in all. they want to keep that number right where it is even though the other numbers continue to grow. jon, laura. >> jay, do they expect more help to come in today? >> reporter: yes, they do. we know that already more than 2,800 firefighters are on the ground. they're asking and receiving more help. this is a fire, the biggest in the nation right now. so it's getting the most attention. and it's help that they desperately need. they've been at it for quite some time and only 7% contained.
5:03 am
so a long way to go. >> jay gray, thanks so much. 5:02 right now. newly released surveillance video is providing important clues into a deadly shooting in downtown san jose. "today in the bay's" bob redell is live at police headquarters with a look at this brand new video. >> reporter: good morning, jon. this video we're about to show you captures the 33rd killing in san jose that took place saturday afternoon. just so you know this video was captured by a surveillance camera installed in an apartment across from the location where this man was killed. we're not going to show you the moment he was shot. but we will show you the moments before and after and perhaps someone might recognize the shooters. this victim is riding on a bicycle, pulls into a parking lot at third and julian streets in downtown san jose, gets off his bike, tries to run as the gunman chases him down. that gunman hits the man and shoots him at least once. seconds later another man on a bicycle rides up, gets off his
5:04 am
bike and fires more shots at the victim and flees on his bicycle. at that point several people run to the victim to try to help them and they call police who arrive later. we spoke with the victim's aunt and she says she wants people to know her nephew was a good person. >> he's a good guy, six kids, good dad, really young. he didn't deserve this. he didn't deserve it at all. we love him, though. >> reporter: and this is the scene of that parking lot at third and julian after the shooting where you can see people have been leaving flowers and candles in this man's honor. police have not yet released his identity. again, this is san jose's 33rd homicide this year. you compare that to a total of 46 killings that took place here in this city last year. reporting live at san jose police headquarters, bob redell, "today in the bay." 5:04. an oakland mother and her two young daughters are recovering after getting caught in the middle of gunfire. one other person, the intended
5:05 am
target was also wounded. meantime police are searching for the shooters this morning. "today in the bay's" christie smith with more on the investigation. >> reporter: unfortunately it's happened again. the youngest victims just 12 and 8 years old, two little girls. both expected to survive. once again, oakland police asking for the public's help in trying to find the people responsible. this as neighbors get more and more frustrated that the victims in these cases appear to be kids more often. this shooting happened in broad daylight on 104th avenue in east oakland yesterday afternoon when police started getting many calls about shots fired in the neighborhood. the trib reports the 44-year-old mom and her two girls were inadvertently hit by gunfire and police say a 17-year-old boy was likely the intended target. all the victims hit in either the legs or hands and will recover. a few other houses were also hit by gunfire, but no one else hurt. we spoke with one man who is
5:06 am
with a group that aims to prevent violence called men of influence. they say they're very frustrated with this spiral of violence. >> it's just like not again. i think we had 12 shot last weekend and then it's been several this week. >> reporter: the children in oakland have been the victims of shootings multiple times this year. since january, eight people under the age of 18 have been killed in the city of oakland. oakland police and crime stoppers are offering a $20,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. reporting live in oakland, christie smith, "today in the bay." 5:06 right now. meteorologist christina loren checking in with us from the nbc bay area weather center. looks like a good looking forecast, christina. >> guys, we have it so great in the bay area. so blessed to be here, especially this time of year. we've had a mild season as a whole, but just because things have been pretty moist around
5:07 am
here and we haven't had to worry about fire danger for the past week or so, we still need to be on the best of our behavior. that's because all of our resources are getting spread very thin. that's because of the rim fire burning in yosemite. we'll take a close look at the smoke plume. i'll show you that from nasa's viewpoint in a moment. this, of course, beautiful san jose. we're kicking off a monday with some pretty comfortable conditions. at 64 degrees, 64 for sunnyvale and 62 degrees to kickoff a new workweek where the kids are also going back to school. let's take you through your hour-by-hour changes. futurecast at 9:00 a.m., temperatures will be cool at that point, about 59 in oakland and san francisco. temperatures will get cooler as we get close to sunrise. because of the low cloud cover, it will take a while for our big energy source, the sun to warm us up. 73 in oakland, 74 in fremont and 80 degrees on the way redwood city. let's get you on the way to work
5:08 am
with mike inouye. >> good morning. past the oakland coliseum, a lot of slowing over the last half hour. as we show you this full screen, the taillights move very smoothly past the high street high-rise. again, earlier traffic breaks as they moved cones, reopened lanes, caused slowing. on the map you'll see we've gone back up to the orange zone. that speed around 50, 55 where there's yellow toward the speed limit through downtown in the northbound direction. all lanes have cleared toward 980 and the bay bridge toll plaza. the maze itself moving smoothly as well. no major issues. the bay bridge toll plaza, as we take a look from our camera, we had crews running backwards. still backing up and removing the last of the cones as you approach the bay bridge toll plaza itself. a smooth drive coming off 880 and just that one remaining truck. someone making a dramatic move over toward the parking lot. another crew. you have to watch for that for the next few minutes. freeze, wonderful shot. just like the end of
5:09 am
"c.h.i.p.s." in the '70s. a couple accused of stealing luggage from stranded passengers after the asiana air crash at sfo are headed to court today. the rim fire continuing to burn parts of yosemite threatening the hetch hetchy reservoir.
5:10 am
5:11 am
nothing short of a huge deal made over the weekend to buy south san francisco's onyx farm suit curveballs, 10ds billion. >> billion with a b. amgen to buy onyx.
5:12 am
amgen does not have much in this category. the deal does need regulatory approval. shareholders in onyx will get $125 for every share they own. that's a significant premium over friday's $116 closing price. the dow ended on a positive but not enough to make up for losses earlier in the week. jackie deangelis at cnbc headquarters. good morning. >> good morning, scott. we're watching the futures this morning pointing to a slightly lower opening as the dow comes off its third straight losing week. data today on demand for big ticket durable goods, later this week home prices, personal income and spending. those could be game changers. the dow rising 47 points on friday to $15,011. the nasdaq rising 19 points to $3,658. >> one of the primary reason it
5:13 am
is stock math has been so fickle is the concern the fed will stop buying bonds. no more quantitative easing. we're seeing that in the world of mortgages already. mortgage rates moving higher. refinancing has slowed down, that means banks including wells fargo and chase are laying off mortgage workers. on friday, a terrible new housing report actually helped the markets a bit. for that matter, mortgages. we're in that really strange place where bad news might cause the fed to keep injecting money. bad news becomes bad news. good news about the economy, some of the news we'll get that jackie mentioned is for investors bad news. we're in that weird place. >> exactly. one to watch. thank you very much. also happening right now, massive rim fire burning in yosemite having a big impact on the bay area. several city-owned camps are in the fire's path. at least one of them has been destroyed. this morning the flames are threatening to hamper san francisco's power and water
5:14 am
supply around the hetch hetchy reservoir. "today in the bay's" jodi hernandez joins us from the staging area in tao ol me city with what workers are saying about that fire this morning. >> reporter: good morning, laura. we're here at the tuolumne city base camp where more than 3,400 firefighters are launching their battle against this fire, just now beginning to wake up to begin their 6:00 a.m. shift. in fact, these fire engines behind us belong to a san francisco strike team which will begin a 24-hour shift in just an hour from now. the small town of tuolumne city is under evacuation. this is where hundreds of firefighters have been staged as the fire grows to nearly 144,000 acres. among the losses, the berkeley
5:15 am
tuolumne camp that's been owned and operated by the city of berkeley since 1992. that camp burned yesterday. firefighters could not save it. also a big concern for the bay area is the hetch hetchy reservoir where fire is threatening san francisco's water and power supply. we understand the fire has already damaged three hydroelectric plants, but the water and power service for the city of san francisco remains unimpacted at this time. again, a san francisco fire strike team is here along with other bay area crews hoping to fight this massive fire. >> whenever we get called by the state to provide mutual aid we're going to sass assist somebody that's in need, the same way we would if we were in the city of san francisco. >> reporter: we are back here live. you're looking at those san francisco fire engines here in tuolumne city. this crew will begin their 24-hour shift in just less than
5:16 am
an hour from now. again, this fire is only 7% contained in its second week now. so certainly the folks out here need all the help they can get. reporting live from tuolumne city, jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> they have a lot fight ahead of them. lots of firefighters in harm's way. hopefully they eat get some kind of containment to beat that thing back. let's check in with our meteorologist christina loren to a cool start. >> the wind direction has shifted when it comes to the rim fire. we were talking about it last week in great detail because we're watching the weather conditions very closely. auz you know, they play a big role in the spreading of this fire. elevation is about 3,000 feet. we do have bad news in the weather department because our winds were coming onshore, that was a cool ocean breeze making its way all the way to the yosemite area. the winds have shifted as high pressure starts to build in. as they continue to shift over the next couple days, we're also
5:17 am
going to see some thunderstorms move over the area. they could be a blessing or a curse for the efforts when it comes to fighting this rim fire. you get brief heavy downpours but also those erratic winds and more lightning strikes. this is an area we'll be watching very closely for the next 24-48 hours. the weather is certainly going to play a big impact. this is a time to really watch the weather conditions in the area. as we head through the next couple days in the bay area, we'll get spoiled. we're seeing enough onshore flow to keep our temperatures unseasonably cool for this time of year. 86 for livermore, 74 in fremont, 77 in oakland, a lot of kids heading back to san jose, 77 for the first day of school, 80 in los gatos and 73 in santa cruz. it's not too hot inland. santa cruz perfection at 73 degrees. as we head through the next couple days, temperatures will get warmer. we'll cool you right back off as we get into the upcoming weekend. temperatures 90 degrees for
5:18 am
tuesday. wednesday back to 88 degrees. as we get closer to the first day of fall and kickoff september, temperatures are going to be down right comfortable. sunday, 83 degrees. let's check off the drive for the kids heading back. >> looking over here to the south bay where in a couple more school districts coming online here. looks like pretty much all those districts should be back in including san jose state, not a school district, but a big school. a lot of computers as well. we're looking over here toward 880 and 280 in the vicinity of 880, 17 showing the construction zones still active. there is slowing as you head towards stephens creek boulevard. crews will start to move by 5:30, by 6:00 it should be completely cleared. that's the tradition and pattern for the south bay. in the tri-valley a nice drive. as you get toward the dublin interchange, you see the speeds dipping a bit. it is slowing a bit as welcoming
5:19 am
out of the altamont pass, more folks coming in here where we're seeing gentle slowing as well. isabel toward vallecitos. as pleasanton comes back online for those school districts as well. northbound 880 past the coliseum, a smooth drive heading up toward the bay bridge toll plaza. let's look at the toll plaza itself. all the crews right here approaching the toll plaza have cleared from the weekend work that had three of those right lanes and toll booths closed. all back and ready for the morning commute. we'll get a look at the north bay as well as we see traffic flying. we'll end with this shot of the san mateo bridge, 116 in the north bay still has a closure because of the downed power l. e two neurosurgeons have resigned from uc davis after experimental treatments on brain cancer treatments. the two doctors injected.
5:20 am
all three patients consented to the procedure in 2010 and 2011. a university investigation confirms that the treatment violated the faculty's code of conduct because the doctors did not get approval from the university or the frkda. san francisco police right now investigating an early morning stabbing in the city's mission terrace neighborhood. this all happened just before 1:30 this morning. police were called to the 4700 block of mission street near the intersection of ocean avenue east of interstate 280. when officers arrived, they found one person with at least one stab wound. right now the victim remains hospitalized in serious condition. so far no arrests have been made. police say they have one more place to search as they look for missing oakland toddler daphne webb. police used cadaver dogs as they
5:21 am
try to find 22-month-old daphne. webb was last seen on july 10 and family members believe she's still alive. the weekend search didn't turn up anything. but officers say they have another area they intend to search. there's a $20,000 award in that case. a united airlines employee and his wife accused of stealing luggage following the crash of asiana flight 214. investigators say shawn crew dup and rach chez thomas stole luggage after the deadly crash in july. police say thomas took clothing to a nordstrom store and got $5,000 from those items. more stolen items were allegedly found inside the couple's home. we'll show you highlights from the mtv video music awards. ♪

5:31 am
video. >> reporter: good morning. this video we're about to show you is captured by a surveillance camera mounted at an apartment across from the scene of saturday afternoon's murder. obviously we're not going to show you the moment this man was shot and killed. we have edited it to show the moments before and after so maybe you can help identify the suspects in the 33rd killing here in the city of san jose. the victim rides into frame on a bicycle, pulls into the parking lot at third and julian streets in downtown san jose. for some reason he gets off his bike, tries to run away as the gunman chases him down. he's cornered between the two cars, the gunman hits the man and shoots him at least once. seconds later another man rides up, gets off his bike and witnesses say he fires more shots at the victims, he's laying on the ground between those two cars and that gunman flees on his bicycle. at that point several people run to the victim to help. they call police. officers arrive. the man did not survive his injuries. we spoke with his aunt.

5:33 am
shut down just after midnight. the suspect was taken into custody and is now being held for a psychiatric evaluation. happening now, the wildfire burning outside yosemite is growing by the minute. the rim fire has showed no signs of slowing down, threatening close to 5,000 homes. right now that fire is only 7% contained. "today in the bay's" jodi hernandez joins us live from the fire lines in tuolumne city. >> reporter: good morning, laura. this fire has proven to be a monster. it continues to have a mind of its own as it enters its second week. a base camp has been set up in tuolumne city. there are crews from across the state and the bay area. in fact, the engines you see behind me are part of a san
5:34 am
francisco fire strike team. we understand this team will be heading out of base camp in about 30 minutes for a 24-hour shift. the fire's impact has been huge, 144,000 acres have burned so far. among the losses, the berkeley tuolumne family camp. firefighters just could not save it. also a big concern for the bay area is the hetch hetchy reservoir where the fire is threatening san francisco's water and power supply. we understand two hydroelectric plants have been damaged. so far the city's water and power supply have not been impacted, at least not yet. crews from the bay area and san francisco are out here helping to fight this unbelievably big blaze. >> -- and stayed out for 24-hour shift on structure protection.
5:35 am
>> reporter: again we're back here live where you can see those san francisco fire engines lined up. there are more than 3,400 firefighters here out here battling this place. there are two base camps, one in tow ol me city and one closer to groveland. more than 144,000 acres have burned. we understand about 20 structures have been destroyed including about 11 homes. this fire is a monster, continues to burn out of control, just 7% contained as we enter the second week. reporting live in tow ol me city, i'm jodi hernandez, "today in the bay." >> a long way to go, thank you very much, jodi. >> state resources stretched very thin. fire officials were tweeting out this map showing just how bad it is. a total of 12 fires right now burning all across the state up and down. you can see it up there. the rim fire is the largest and
5:36 am
most intense. now for a look at the weather conditions firefighters are facing, we turn to meteorologist christina loren. >> due to the size of this fire, the actual fire is creating its own weather conditions. you have major temperature differences in the area. that's making it more difficult for firefighters battling this blaze. what i can tell you is the winds have shifted. we already have heavy smoke reporting. in tahoe they had to cancel several events in reno due to the bad air quality. as we head throughout the next couple days, the winds will continue to shift. we have the threat for thunderstorms. that really comes in as we get into tomorrow. humidity in the evening hours, 15 to 25%. temperatures aren't as hot as they could be as we have had a little cooldown over the last couple days. expecting the upper 80s. the closer your get to the fire, the hotter it gets. i feel our thoughts and prayers going out to everybody battling this fire from everywhere across the state. here is the rim fire from space.
5:37 am
i promised to show you this picture. look how massive that smoke plume is. you can see a lot of smoke drifting over tahoe and into the reno area. you may wonder with the winds shifting, is the smoke going to come into the bay area? i can tell you i don't believe that will be the case. a nice onshore flow, enough marine influence out of the west to keep the smoke out of our area. we have a lot of our guys, local guys out there battling the fire. definitely one to watch as we head throughout the next couple days. meanwhile here it's come fortable, a lot of kids going back to school. 61 in gilroy, 64 in san jose, 62 in oakland. let's take you through our hour-by-hour forecast. stop the clock at lunchtime as the kids head out, hot lunch, cold lunch, whatever you prefer. 73 in livermore, 75 in fairfield and 72 in concord at noon. rounding out the day in the mid to upper 80s, not getting too hot for the first day of school
5:38 am
for many kids across the bay area. 86 in livermore, 74 in fremont and into the next couple weeks most kids will have started school. that drive has certainly picked up. let's find out about the drive with our own mike inouye. >> with the last few days of the public schools coming back online and everybody dealing with the get to school rush and get through the school rush to get to the freeway rush. looking at the rush to get to the bay bridge toll plaza. the last couple weeks have seen an increase in the volume of traffic. already seeing the backup in the cash lanes. maybe ten more minutes before the metering lights are turned on. the maze is not a problem. a smooth drive here. a crash highway 4 at loveridge as you start to see traffic get back up to speed. the travel speed through the rest of the tri-valley looking good. 580 traditional through livermore. we end with san jose with the volume building here. 5:38 right now.
