6:03 am
time. i think we will recover from this. this will even out to the normal commute which is a 20 minute drive into san francisco. if you want to sneak on down to the san mateo bridge, you can do that right now. doesn't look too bad as you drive down 880 and get over to 92 and of course 92 is looking good and no problems on the peninsula on 101 as you drive across to the bay shore freeway and head up northbound. 6:03, let's go back to the desk. we begin with developing news. oakland firefighters are still on the scene of an early morning fire that burned two homes. ktvu christien kafton was the first reporter on the scene. he is joining us now with new information about the the fire and the power problems it's causing. >> reporter: yeah, good morning. let's show you the scene here so you can get a sense of what it looks like now. we saw the fire really going. this fire at 46th avenue and melrose. we are learning the 911 call
6:04 am
came in at 3:30 this morning. by the time oakland crews arrived, two buildings were fully engulfed. pg&e crew was on scene, and is still on scene. they killed power to about four or five homes. they have pretty much isolated it to a few homes that are still without power. that is because there was a downed power line. that downed power line initially hampered efforts to put out this fire. >> we had a charged power line that was down. that made fighting the fire extremely difficult. we had to make sure to isolate the power line. >> reporter: when we arrived on scene at 4:00, we saw two buildings fully engulfed in flames and the power line down and sparking in front of that house. obviously a safety concern for even involved. firefighters and residents and neighbors that came out to see what was going on. it took close to an hour to get control of this fire.
6:05 am
the fire started in the upper unit and neighbors say they just had minutes to react. >> she alerted us. we heard noises upstairs. i asked i smell something smoking. so we got up. and she said fred, call the fire department. so right immediately i started calling 911. >> reporter: neighbors are counting their blessings. saying everyone made it out of this fire okay. as many as 18 people have been displaced because of this fire. the woman living in the unit where the fire started was cooking at the time of the fire but she tells neighbors the fire started in a bedroom not in the kitchen where she was cooking at about 3:3040 -- at about 3:40 this morning. the big headline is the fire seems to be out. certainly under control at this time. some of the homes in the area

6:07 am
as crews try to fix that water main and road. inspectors don't know what caused that pipe to burst. that is just incredible. but they do say the age of the 93-year-old steel pipe it was a factor. now the stairwells on the campus were streams. perhaps most damaging economically and emotionally. this is polly pavilion. famous pavilion on ucla campus covered in water. the floors have to be pulled out now. there was also heavy flooding in the locker rooms now. they recently intent $136 million renovating polly pavilion. >> it's painful. we just repushished polly a few years ago and it's a beautiful structure. >> i kind of didn't believe it at first. and finally i see the water

6:09 am
pizza delivery on remington avenue just after 9:00 p.m. when two suspects doctored entered the vehicle. police are considering it a kidnapping. saying the thieves stole cash and a pope. and then just an hour later a suspect tried to force another pizza delivery man out of his car. the victim ran away and the thief tried to steal his car. the delivery man was also unininjured. there are signs saying delivery people only carry $20 in cash on them. but in these incidents it didn't stop the police. we are still waiting to hear back. janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. later today barbecues and open flames they will officially be banns at san ho
