7:02 am
i'm dave clark. let's talk about weather and traffic. steve is off today. but rosemary is over there. >> our warmup will continue for monday today. low 60s in antioch. 60 60 degrees in livermore. 58 redwood city, as we heed into the north bay, upper 50s to lower 40s. clouds at the coast and patchy fog. half moon bay. 54 degrees outside your door right now. these numbers are a lot like yesterday. even slightly warmer in some areas. it has to do with all of the cloud cover overhead. so the low clouds continuing as we have seen over recent days but there's something different going on this morning. we have high clouds in the area as well. these mid and high level clouds are streaming all the way from the desert southwest. this monsoonal moisture could make us feel a little different this afternoon. perhaps a little muggy. in the afternoon, giving you a look this morning, the cloedz
7:03 am
will clear out as we get into the second half the of the morning. for the second half of the day, the clouds move back into the bay area. i think it could be sticky for some of our hot spots. for today, temperatures are expected to peak. 80s and 90s for our inland areas. the shades of pink independent it -- indicating a few 100- degree temperatures. i will put some numbers on the screen and i'm tracking a cooldown coming up. good morning, sal. we have a serious accident this morning in fremont that's closed paseo parkway at the sequoia turnoff because of a pickup truck that ran into a tree early this morning. the driver was taken to the hospital. police describe his injuries as major. the traffic is not being allowed through on southbound and northbound. that is southbound you are
7:04 am
looking at here. northbound may be allowed within the next hour according to police, pretty soon, anyway. but southbound will be closed until 9:30 this morning. that's what we were told. again, major injuries. they have to use some of the other routes around the area. you cannot use paseo padre parkway. to the bay bridge toll plaza, 15, 20 minutes. if you are driving near the eastshore freeway, you will see elevated drive times because of earlier problems on rich mornd on 80 westbound. if you -- richmond on 80 westbound. 880, so far so good. the giants play the as at the coliseum. that means there are likely to be a lot of people attending. the best way to get to the coliseum is to take b.a.r.t. back to the desk. back to our developing news in los gatos where an award- winning restaurant caught on fire earlier this morning. fire crews have contained the fire now on village lane near university avenue. ktvu's janine de la vega has been updating us on the fire
7:05 am
for more than two hours. you've been talking to customers who are pretty upset. >> reporter: yeah, it's heartbreaking for them as well as employees in shock. this is a two-star michelin restaurant that's been here in downtown los gatos for 1 years. the staff says they -- 12 years. the staff says they are devastated. the smoke has died down. the firefighters are winding down their work. they've been ventilating the roof making sure the flames don't spark back up. here's video of the fire earlier this morning showing the flames and smoke engulfing the restaurant which is located on university and village. someone driving by spotted the fire at 4:00 a.m. and called 911 and because the fire station is less than a hundred yards away, crews were here quickly. they started to attack the fire. at one point the gas meter was in flames. it's unknown if that's where the fire started. the restaurant was vacant. we're told it was closed for the 4th of july and it was set to reopen this wednesday see it could have a thorough cleaning. that won't happen now.
7:06 am
again, it's heartbreaking for customers we spoke to this morning. they feel for the owner and chef, david. >> we were running by and we saw the fire hose. we're like what's going on? we saw that. we were devastated. i feel awful. >> reporter: you feel for david? >> oh, yeah. he puts his heart and soul into that restaurant. that's his life. >> reporter: during the firefight, a fireman was injured and had to be treated for a chest injury because he ended up falling down over debris. he was taken to the hospital and is said to be okay. and investigators are out here and will start to look for signs for evidence of what may have started the fire. we're told the dining area is intact but there's smoke and water damage. the back of the building and the roof has the most destruction. again, very difficult for restaurant employees. you are looking at a live picture of some of those employees who are out here and they are just in disbelief. one of them told me, you noel, it's hard for her -- you know,
7:07 am
it's hard for her not to cry. this restaurant has been rated one of the top ten in america. the owner and chef is not here yet, david kinch. he's on his way back from new york. he is scheduled to come back at this time. he will have a lot of thinking to do about his future plans. janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, janine. san francisco police are looking for clues in a deadly shooting. it happened around 3:00 in the sunnydale neighborhood. the shooting woke up many neighbors. some say they thought the gunfire was actually fireworks left over from the 4th of july. police say the victim was a man in his early 20s, just a short time ago, alex savidge spoke to one neighbor who knew the young victim. >> good young man. used to pick up his children at the teen center every day. any time i needed him to help
7:08 am
me do some work he helped. didn't ask for money. just a fun-loving by. i always saw him up here. he definitely didn't deserve this. >> it's still not clear what led up to the deadly gunfire. police are still looking for suspects. 7:07. hot temperatures, shifting winds, still hampering efforts to control the wildfire southeast of lake berryessa. this one started near the monticello dam. it's only 30% contained. dozens of homes are threatened. the drought has created dangerous conditions that firefighters don't see until late summer. >> very difficult access to get to but combined with the triple- digit figures, low humidity, it makes it a very challenging environment for firefighters to work aggressively all day and all night. >> many who were evacuated over the weekend, they are being allowed to go home this morning. coming up for you in 30
7:09 am
minutes, pam cook will tell us about the firefighter who was hurt on the fire lines. on the other side of lake berryessa, fire crews are making progress on the big fire that broke out there. calfire says the fire that started six days ago in napa county and has burned 4300 acres and destroyed two homes, it's now 90% contained. full containment expected tomorrow. passengers on some international flights heading to the u.s. will now be asked to turn on their cell phones and other electronics to prove they are not explosive devices. if the cell phone, tablet or laptop will not power up, it will not be allowed on the plane and the passenger may have to undergo additional screening. the new security measures follow reports that terrorists are developing -- or working, rather, to develop more sophisticated bombs to go undetected through airport

7:11 am
and shapes. but it becomes a knife with a steel blade once it is folded out. according to the l.a. times, so far this year, the tsa has confiscated nearly 500 of these on passengers. that equates to 20 per week. that's an increase. sfo topped the list where the credit card knives have been confiscated. a couple of weeks ago, the tsa says 61 knives were found at airports nationwide and 10 were recovered at sfo. these knives can be bought online and are priced anywhere from $3 to $15. they were allowed through security. if you have one going through security, the tsa says you will be asked to turn it over, you can give it to a friend or get rid of it. you can check it in your bag as well. the tsa says there isn't a specific group carrying the knives. kids and adults have been carrying. they've seen an increase in people carrying these knives. we have a call into tsa. we've not heard back.
