6:04 am
street in the cobbs creek section of the city for a fatal fire. no word on who the victim height be but earlier i did say we were talking to some neighbors out here. everybody came out this morning, when they heard this fire and sirens and heard lights flashing to see what was going on. these are their neighbors. they were concerned that not everyone got out safely. so we are awaiting the fire commissioner to come out here to give us a briefing, at this point, the fire department has not yet confirmed any information regarding a fatal but as i mentioned the red cross did put out some information saying that they are here and that this fire is fatal. so, fire fighters, still up there, you can see working on at least three row homes, possibly a fourth here on in, and it is unclear whether or not that home received any damage, and the fire has been placed under control, and just sorting through hot spots and going through inspecting these homes now, now fire started just after 4:00 o'clock this
6:05 am
morning and we do know, that one person was transported to presbyterian hospital. so at this .1 person was transported and another believed to have died in this fire, alex. >> thanks, jenny. we have more breaking news this morning three suspects are in custody after police say one of them fired at a uniformed officer. >> they were originally wanted forearmed robbery. lets get out to steve keeley on the scene in olney. it seems like the cold played a factor here. >> reporter: they are riding around in the black nissan pick up that we have video of after it eventually stops. what happens was they saw a 21 year-old not far from the boulevard where there is a 24 hours dunkin' donuts and they held up that 21 year-old who gave up his wallet, cash and phone and then called the cops , and then gave them a good description. they find this nissan on the street, they pull it over and the three, inside, stop it at first, and then somebody must have said hey, take off, so as police were approaching on foot out of the patrol car, that is when the truck takes
6:06 am
off, cops get in, chase him for about a minute and lose it and then they see it park a few blocks away. then they see these three guys here where we are as we come back to the live picture about one of the busiest intersections on the boulevard at rising sun, and these guys didn't even slow down. and then they run into this alley, jump over a fence and they actually one of them fires a gun once at police, and good thing they missed and also good thing that the cops didn't decide to fire back but somehow, these three finally gave up, and the cops caught them, without firing a shot. >> the police did an excellent job on a freezing cold night not only identifying a vehicle and chasing and apprehending all will three of these robbery suspects but they showed a whole lot of restraint after getting fired upon, the police officers, for some reason, they did not return fire. maybe they could not get a clear shot but they did a great job. they did not return fire even though they were definitely
6:07 am
fired upon and they apprehended all three of the suspects. they are all teenagers. one is a juvenile one is 17, other two, 18 and 19 and the gun that they fired was recovered in the alley, by police, so great job by 24th district police on to this freezing cold night. >> reporter: look, police looked for a second gun because you look what they found here unfired bullet among drug baggies filled won sold or unused drugs on the ground. where they found robbers's gun and shell case ago this was a tive rent caliber. that is why they thought maybe somebody threw a second gun up on the roof and took these bullets and bags out of their pockets. so they called in the fire department and if they weren't busy enough on jenny joyce fire scene the fire department has to come out and bring ladders go up and assist, philadelphia cops, looking for a second gun. busy night for police and thomas, alex, we hear about police getting criticized for
6:08 am
shooting their guns, how about this case doing a great job, without even using their guns. >> it takes restraint, thanks, steve. steve mentioned jenny joyce on a story about a fire in west philadelphia, there is a live interview right now. >> unfortunately it looks like despite their best efforts it wasn't going to be enough to save this young man. >> reporter: you say this is fatal can you give us any information about the victim. >> no, i cannot not at this time. >> reporter: thirty-nine year-old man was transported to the hospital, is that person is still in the hospital that person is still in the hospital right now. they were initially transported to penn presbyterian and may end up in the burn center. this was a very large fire fight, more than an hour, because of the very cold, very windy conditions, it is very tough fire ground. i was just in the building. as our crews were trying to make it up to the second floor the fire did a flash over which essentially involves the entire building on fire and just a really tough fire fight our folks are just a tragic
6:09 am
outcome. >> reporter: can you tell us some of the challenges. >> it is very killed. we are fighting ice. all of the crews arized up. there was the wind that drove the fire, the initial occupancy drove tonight to two other adjacent exposure. we had fire in three row houses this fire brought about 13 response units, 75 or so fire fighters and medics to the scene. fire marshals are here and they are doing such a great job too, second alarmers, peco , pgw, water department and police are here supporting us as they always to. but again these folks do such an outstanding job. they were risking their lives in there today and they are heart broken. we all have kids. they are heart broken that they could this is to more but they really did try. i can't say anything more than that. report report unaudible.
6:10 am
>> reporter: how many houses. >> three or four that are affected. there are two of the house that he is were going to be sheltering occupants and probably have red cross involved in that. they are a great partner for us as well. >> reporter: can you tell us where fire started in the home >> there is a lot of fire. there was a lot of fire in there. heavy fire involvement, heavy fire load, very difficult job and our folks did a great job. we will investigate this. fire marshals are in there now we will be investigating this for a while. we won't know about the cause for a few days. of course, also up to the medical examiner to determine the cause of death but like i said we believe right now... >> we have been listening to the fire commissioner explain the fire, tough fire fight with a tragic outcome as we have learn at least one person has died and another was taken to the hospital. >> all this taking place this morning in west philadelphia on south millick street. fire fighters say it is simply
6:11 am

, back to you. we have now learned that one person is dead when a row home cause fire in west philadelphia. >> it started in one home and quickly spread to the neighbors. lets get out to jenny joyce on the scene south millick street , jenny. >> reporter: good morning, thomas and alex. as you heard commissioner adam tiehl talk live on our air within the last half an hour or so, one person is dead after this fire. it is commissioner that could not give us exact information about the victim except to say that he is a child, young man, and he is, living in that fourth house in from the end of the block. we're also hearing a 39 year-old man was transported to presbyterian hospital, we don't know the extent of his injuries. a total of nine people displaced. we can see damage from this fire, destroying at least three homes, there might even be some damage to a fourth home, fire commissioner tiehl explained that there were several challenges in battling this fire. >> this is a very large fire
6:35 am
fight, and very cold, windy conditions, very tough fire ground. like i said i was just in the building. as our crews were trying to make it up to the second floor the fire did a flash over which essentially involve the entire building and fire and just a really tough fire fight our folks, they are just crushed. this is a tragic outcome here. >> unaudible. >> it is very cold. you can see we're fighting ice right now. all of the crews, they are all ized -- all iced up, it drove it the to two other adjacent exposures. we really were battling fire in three row houses. >> reporter: apparently, the young man died in this fire was found in a back bedroom, it is unclear where fire started, at this point we don't know whether or not there were smoke, working smoke detectors. we do know this investigation
6:36 am
will take sometime, thomas and alex. >> heart breaking this morning , jenny, thank you. we're also following more breaking news where three suspects lead police on a chase around the city and then opened fire on officers. >> police say they are in custody awaiting charges. steve keeley on the the scene in olney this morning, steve? >> reporter: our viewers, hard to believe it is good news story of the day, but it is. it didn't start that way. lets go to the video. notice black nissan pickup truck, three teenagers who should have been home in bed on this cold night getting ready to go to high school in the morning. but instead they are out rob bing a 21 year-old at 1:30 in the morning. police get the call, and they catch these guys essentially almost in the act and pull over the truck, and decides to stop at first and then take off. police lose it. and then they find the truck parked where they see it here and then three guys walking together still, not wise enough to split up, and run
6:37 am
and then one really not wise, turns, fires a gun at police, police somehow, without firing their own guns to return fire finally catch these guys after jumping over a fence. >> luckily, the officers were not struck by gunfire because when shot was fired at police, police were just feet away in the alley, with these three suspects. so, we're really, really lucky that none of the police officers were struck by gunfire, in police officers were injured, and all three suspects were apprehended and as i said, the semiautomatic handgun was recovered, and in
6:38 am
the alley, we found the spent shell casings from the shot that was fired at police. great police work all the waste around. our 21 year-old victim the initial victim, the reason we responded to this incident. came on scene and identified suspects as ones who committed the robbery. >> if that wasn't enough as a bone to us this, look what else they found. unspent, meaning unfired bullets of a different caliber meaning, going for a different gun than the one they have recover along with bags of drugs, right here on the same ground where they were searching and found bullet casing and the gun, from these criminals. so they went up on a roof thinking one of these three guys had a gun they didn't fire and tossed it up on the roof so police would not find it. what a night for philadelphia police and always disturbing when someone is packing their pockets with drugs and bullets and this guy who had these bullets planned to reload the gun which means he planned on probably having the fire of his gun at some point during the night. the those are kind of the people lurking in this brutal cold in the middle of the night. if you thought everybody would listen to you and spend the night inside we were all wrong again thinking crime would take a holiday during this one
6:39 am
day cold freeze. >> we know that is not the case obviously this morning. thank you you. i want to take to you breaking news we have been following all morning, police in washington state of taken a suspect into custody after a police officer was shot. now the shooting happened late last night, an hour outside seattle. officers were investigating shots fired in the area and when they arrived a man started shooting at them striking the 61 year-old officer. he has been taken to the hospital this morning and currently under going surgery, by the way, police say that suspect taken in custody is well men to law enforcement. convicted south cara gunman dylann roof will learn his fate after the holidays. roof's sentencing hearing is set to begin january 3rd. just yesterday roof was found guilty in the the shooting death of nine black parishioners in charleston last year. jury convicting him on all 33 federal charges, including hate crimes. well, coming up on 6:40. in the next hour we will have

it is obvious we still have arctic advice we need to pass along on a day like today , with dangerous wind chills make sure you wear layers of loose fitting clothing so warm air can get trapped in between those layers. don't walk outside without the hat, scarves and gloves. i almost did this morning. i was running late. oh, i forgot it is 1 degree outside. properly ventilate space heaters, and see what happens in cold weather like this. limit your pets outdoor exposure. it seems obvious but don't forget. today is the day if you cab tough it out through today temperatures get much more comfortable in the afternoon, tomorrow but it feels like 4 degrees in philadelphia zero wilmington. ten below is wind chill this mount pocono, very big frostbite danger up there, six in dover, delaware and in precipitation today but, today is a different story, midnight , where you live,
6:49 am
where you start with the snow, and it is, quickly going to be replaced by rain over the next couple of hours, you see rain moving northward from the south, and then by eight or 9:00 we are starting to see the changeover in philadelphia , we will get to a wintry mix and then over to the rain as temperatures warm up. we will if the the a break on saturday. more rain on sunday, now sunday's high temperature of 60 degrees will come early in the day. do you see arrow there. we will see falling temperatures throughout the afternoon. and cold air rolls in gannon monday and tuesday with temperatures in the 30's both days, winter doesn't arrive until officially until wednesday. guys, back to you. >> long road, until then. thanks, sue. eagles/ravens, this sunday at the 1:00 right here on fox 29. this is final road game of the season for the eagles but we know it doesn't really matter, right especially last weeks looks to the redskins. we know eagles will not make playoffs. last time we talked to you
6:50 am
there was a 1 percent chance. >> right. >> so, i know for he it the is football, i love it. >> emotional segment i got tissue box here talking about the eagles. >> yes. >> 5 million to one are you still holding on to that hope. >> i'm still holding on. >> what can do i in the next five minutes to convince to you bring me over to my side. >> absolutely nothing. >> lets talk about darren sproles a lot of people were talking about that hit that he got. he will be out for this game. >> would i imagine so and again concussion protocol, safety of the nfl, pushing for player safety, you'd like to sees him sit and get better, of course, he is best player on offense outside quarterback the in the meaningless football game it is nice to have your best players out there but i don't expect him. >> did he get find for this hit, some people were saying he should have been fine. >> in suspension that came down. that is the biggest part for the hits thousand. that is the statement that we were like to see from the nfl, preaching about safety here is
6:51 am
coming down and knock a guy out for two weeks and take money out of his pocket as opposed to here is a fine because that doesn't impact the player as much as suspension. >> week before we hear coach say everybody wasn't in the game, head weren't in the game what to we learn is this are we inching toward everyone becoming that collective team. >> it is difficult to go on one game. you don't want to hand out participation trophies to say somebody showed up, therefore, they are trying. you try to get anything at this point. problem is baltimore is still in the playoff hunt and they are hungry this week. they are coming in with the goal to beat eagles. the problem is, you now set the bar, last week of showing up and giving effort. if you show up on sunday, pardon me and there is no evidence and back to what it was, prior to last week then we are back to this team quitting. back to this team not showing up. problem is they have set the bar. they need to show up again but the competition doesn't get any easier. we have ravens, giants, and then cowboys.
6:52 am

6:53 am
play well as a team. they know each other movements and play action. >> they are young too. build off of that where you have this continuity with the team from last year, growing, next year, everybody is together, playing in the same page. >> it could get better. >> that is the idea, expectations are playoff this year and growing with the nucleus. they are at the same page. dave hakstol is doing a great job. >> do you have any concerns about the dallas stars, playing in dallas. >> you want to bring up concern? >> i want to get the winning streak. >> in the for the flyers, no concern with the flyers. they are laying great hockey. >> don't hold me to. that people will blame me if i lose. >> eagles on a bus and take them over and watch flyers. >> i am with you. >> thanks, eytan see new an hour. >> you got it. >> 6:53. we will get back to breaking news and bob kelly. >> good morning. we are looking live at a fully involved car fire, this is a live look at i-95, northbound
