a live look outside right thousand, this is the schuylkill expressway. and you can see here on the eastbound side some volume is picking up. we are seeing wet roads out there. be careful if you head out early this morning. and look at this. it's just a foggy view in the poconos. bill henley was talking about the limited visibility up in that area. so here's a live and foggy, wet look at interstate 95 on the southbound side at giraud starting to pick up. we are going to see that increase further into our morning commute. greenwood avenue and york road there is an accident to tell you about. the schuylkill expressway still looking pretty good overall. drive times, still getting a green light. that will take you about 13 minutes. few from overnight, a firefighter and a neighbor are hurt after a fire broke out at a home in delaware county around 2:45 this morning. this is 10th and engel streets in chester township. everyone got out safely but we are told that a firefighter has minor burns to the hand and a neighbor suffered smoke inhalation. and happening today, parishioners continue their
fight to save a fishtown church that the archdiocese of philadelphia says is in danger of collapsing. nbc 10's matt delucia is live for us outside the church. matt, some folks that are hoping that the pope's visit in september might save the church. tell us more about that. >> reporter: that is right, vai. a big part of the fate of this church and this building here lies with the vatican, whether to tear it down or not. and community members along with parishioners have raised more than $500,000 to make repairs. yesterday members of the church met with city council president darrell clark. the archdiocese wants to demolish the church here on burke street because of structural and safety issues, saying it would cost more than $3 million to restore it and bring it up to code. now, some of the parishioners and the city council president believe that the upcoming visit by pope francis to philadelphia might be just the thing to save this church. >> probably couldn't happen at a better time.
the simple reality is that you know, the pope coming to the city of philadelphia in a couple of months and having this debate at this particular time is probably something that we'd like to get some resolution before the pope gets here. and we're hoping the resolution is being able to save the church. >> if the archdiocese gives us that chance and walks away from the property and lets us rehab it and reuse it purposefully and either in a religious or nonreligious way, everybody wins. >> reporter: there is a meeting tonight among parishioners and supporters to decide what to do next. although right now, you can see out here live the scaffolding is in place. demolition preparations already under way. of course, we're going to follow what happens. for now live in fishtown matt delucia, nbc 10 news. a stolen baby and a stolen getaway car. this morning philadelphia police say gps technology helped them track down a teen who abducted her 1-year-old cousin.

the north charleston police department fired him yesterday after cell phone video surfaced of him shooting walter scott as he ran away. slager fired eight shots. scott was unarmed. the man who took this video described what happened while he pointed the camera at the scene. >> when i got on the scene, i saw -- i saw them on the floor already. like i say, on the floor. he was maybe two seconds, i don't know if he felt the police tackle him and take him down. like i say, i didn't witness that. but the officer was on top of the -- of mr. scott, and like i say, he had control of the situation. >> well the cell phone video is prompting a change in the north charleston police force. the mayor yesterday ordered all officers to wear body cameras. and that move in south carolina could be having an effect in delaware. the naacp and other civil rights groups are renewing their call
for all police officers to be equipped with body cameras. public officials say they support the use of the cameras. once logistical and legal issues are worked out. the fired police officer at the center of the controversy in north charleston is actually originally from south jersey. and some neighbors who knew michael slager tell us he's not what they remember. the former police officer used to live in burlington county and people in mount laurel said they're trying to grasp that it's really slager shooting walter scott in the back as he ran away. >> i remember michael as a very nice boy. very nice. went to school here. knew my children. >> and helga's husband, larry shay, told nbc 10 that he just can't understand how someone from his neighborhood could do something like this. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> clouds mist and fog. that's what we're going to see all day today.
these clouds are staying put. the wind light right now will be picking up, but it's an easterly wind. that's going to keep things chilly today. a big warm-up set for tomorrow. but right now we're at 38 in allentown. look at northeast philly and millville at 40. and this is a view from the pocono mountains. skytop lodge. you can see the fog that's there. the temperatures are hovering around the freezing mark in the poconos. so that fog could create some ice this morning. the rest of the area is too warm for that. you see some rain showers in baltimore. part of a system that produced big storms heavy thunderstorms that are moving through the norfolk area right now. and to the west that line of storms is being produced by warm air pushing into western pennsylvania. warm air will get here tomorrow. that will come with the possibility of some strong thunderstorms. for today, though chilly. cloudy misty, drizzly. easterly winds to 12. 40s this afternoon. the weekend, we're on track for the los of sunshine and dry weather for saturday and sunday.
a little bit breezy on saturday. the winds die down on sunday. the temperatures climb into the upper 60s. and that trend will continue into next week. but before we get to the weekend, strong storms are a possibility. i've issued a first alert. we'll go through it when i'm back in ten. >> 6:38. we've been monitoring an accident in bensalem throughout the morning. we'll also get a check on the rest of the roads. >> christine maddela is watching it all for you. christine? >> the good news is that accident cleared out of the way. it was mechanicsville road and street road but now crews have moved out of that scene right now. interstate 76 at montgomery drive starting to stack up on the eastbound side. the westbound side moving along quite nicely out there. this is the time of morning, though, where our normal trouble spots do start to stack up. and you can see that in our drive time especially slow interstate 95 southbound from woodhaven road to the vine street expressway. right now that's going to take you 39 minutes for that commute. 17 minutes if you're heading from the blue route to the vine on the schuylkill. also slowing down, 422 in

for toxicology results. meantime, we found a longer more clear video that shows officers arresting phillip white. this video was recorded by a witness appears to show an officer calling over a canine and punching white on the ground. critics say the officers used excessive force. but a lawyer for the police union disagrees, saying the man was combative and was resisting arrest, and he believes the toxicology report will show why the man was out of control. >> expect it to state that mr. white unfortunately ingested pcp along with cocaine and a mixture of other drugs which caused or contributed to a cardiopulmonary event causing his death, not the police officers. >> now, white's family has paid for an independent medical examination. nbc 10 will continue to check for results on that along with the official autopsy results as this investigation continues. we're also learning more about the case of the kidnapping of a philadelphia jewelry store worker. the mayor's office is now offering a $10,000 reward for

ran after it trying to stop the car with her hands. it crushed her, pinning her body against another vehicle. >> after the vehicle was coasting through the lot, and the victim was trying to stop the vehicle on the front of the hood which then made her fall underneath. >> novak worked as a bus driver for the easton area school district for the past three years. to the jersey shore where it's still unclear why city council members in atlantic city scrapped a vote to help stockton university open a campus at the former showboat casino. their proposal would have designated the showboat as a redevelopment zone so that it would not have to be used as a casino. nearly two years after the boston marathon bombing, a verdict is reached. jurors found tsarnaev guilty. victims of the bombing reacted to that decision.
the jury found him guilty on all 30 counts yesterday. the panel deliberated just more than 11 hours before reaching the verdicts. some family members of the victims and survivors of the blast reacted. >> obviously, grateful for the outcome today. not a happy occasion, but it's something that we can put, you know, one more step behind us. >> now, during the penalty phase, tsarnaev's defense team will likely argue that he was pulled into the bombing plot by his older brother. it is 6:46. happening today, vice president joe biden will talk about the future of iraq during a speech at the national defense university in washington. he's also expected to discuss iraq's political and military progress and its ongoing fight against isis. president obama is waking up in jamaica this morning. from there he'll go to cuba where he's expected to meet with cuban leader raul castro about restoring diplomatic relations between the two countries. he will be the first president to visit cuba in nearly three decades. subway service is resuming in new york's greenwich village, but there may still be delays after a water main break halted some service last night. this is instagram video of the water flooding the 14th street station. last night.
