and now to a developing story that we first told you about that 5:00. doctor bob saget has died and best known for his role as danny tanner the wholesome father raising his daughter in san francisco and on the show full house and its remake full her house. he later went on to host the long running america's funniest home videos and from 2005 to 2014, he lent his voice to the role of the narrator for the popular sitcom how i met your mother. the florida police say he was found unresponsive inside his hotel room at the ritz carlton orlando and detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use. though it was filmed in los angeles, one san francisco home played a major role in production of full house, this three-story victorian on broderick street that served as
the model for the home famously seen used as the tanner family home on the sitcom. it was remodeled in 2016 and is now privately owned. since the beginning of the aids epidemic, actively men have been banned from giving blood and now in the middle of the covid pandemic, blood banks are critically low. >> the scientific study is underway that just may change the rules. >>nade bl oviding an cente foe to reconsider its rules about who is qualified to donate. since the pandemic began, the donation site here has been scrambling to find enough donors and with blood drives that businesses and schools severely's cutback and that makes regular donors bike camden all the more valuable. >> we want to see as many healthy people donate as possible. >> reporter: the blood shortage is adding weight in an effort to change the long-standing ban
on donations from sexually active men, born out of fear from the aids epidemic in the late 1970s. >> basically if you disclose you are a man who had sects with and you are asked never to donate again. >> reporter: and 2015 the ban was changed to involve men only who had sects within 12 months and recently that was dropped to three months but the vice president of research here said now that each donation is individually tested for hiv, there isn't much danger of transmission in any case. >> i do think with the current testing being done, there isn't really a strong scientific rationale for a deferral and one could argue even three months in length. >> so they are partnering in the so-called advanced study gathering data about the actual risk of men donating and they are soliciting volunteers to answer questions about their sexual lifestyles and submit a
small blood sample. scientists believe it will reveal the kind of activity that actually poses a risk rather than branding all men as dangerous. >> i think we understand a lot more about hiv infection and we don't have to use those kind of blank and deferrals in the future. >> he is proud to donate blood every eight weeks and says it would hurt to be told you couldn't. >> i would definitely be sad and all the sudden i said actually you can't donate anymore because of your sexual identity or your sexual preferences. >> reporter: organizers of the study hope it will give the fda and push it needs to end its ban on donors and focus more on individual activities that may pose a real problem. in san francisco reporting. the study will be opening a new testing site on tuesday to widen its reach in the east bay and we will be posting a link on our website for anybody who
wants to volunteer. we will look live outside on our exclusive cameras and we are coming out of a very clear and sunny day and a nice change for january. >> what is ahead? right on schedule, the clouds started showing up as we got to sunset which is good if you want to keep the temperatures relatively warm overnight because that will ask kind of like a blanket to keep the temperatures from dipping lower and there is a little bit of rain behind those clouds, and you can see it is starting to show their in high definition doppler and if we switch from looking at live radar inputted into the forecast model, we actually get a much clearer picture of what is out there because the forecast models can be picked more of the rain and the radar can't read that far off the coast with forecast models are able to depict what is actually out there and watch what happens over the next few hours and that rain is not coming here because it is going to the north. we get the clouds which we have seen into the middle of the night and here's 230 or three
clock in the morning we have this nice cover of clouds overhead and that is what we don't get as cold because the clouds will act as a blanket keeping the warmth and instead of clear skies which would allow it to radiate away and then on cue about an hour or so after sunrise the clouds get out of here and we get sunshine for today and it will be sunny and near 60 for most locations and that is the view outside from our camera looking back the city and right now the number here is 46 which is the coolest number on here and every but he is low to mid 60s in this 46 doesn't have to go a whole lot lower but it is going down for 40 thanks to those clouds in santa rosa feels the improvement here in concord was the 39 and san jose will go to 43 and then tomorrow's highs come back up and in fact mid- 60s for san jose and fremont is there with you and 63 as a santa rosa so it is an interesting pattern in the pacific right now with the storms because they are just kind of lining up and there is one we looked off at the coast
and if you look here there is a train of them. there are several others out there and once again we fill it in to see where the rain is and watch where it all goes. this is like for the next week and it kind of gets getting pulled off to the pacific northwest, a pattern keeping us out of the rain game for a while and even beyond that if we played the long-range forecast, you could see the dates and this gets us ahead to next sunday a week from tonight and still doing the same thing. so the seven-day forecast it is no surprise with no rain and daytime highs which will stay on the mark for average for this time of year with just a few clouds here there and upper 50s for most of us and mid-60s for some of the warmer inland spots and that is where things stand for now. we will look past the seven-day and that 8 to 14 day range for what the chances are for precipitation coming up in the next half hour and for now back over to you. straight ahead in sports, we are juggling a lot of balls in the air today and a busy sports sunday and the right balls fall into the hands of

the second time in eight years the 49ers season extended into the playoffs and an epic come back under the direction of quarterback jimmy garoppolo where there were questions about the injured right thumb on his throwing hand and ligament damage and how long would he go? also, no help on the blindside. williams out with an elbow injury and they jumped up 10-0 looking for more in stafford and tyler higbee had a great catch and a 17-0 in the second quarter and the niners were in trouble but they got back into it down 17-10 and they were driving. look at this. look at samuel.
he can run and he can catch and he can throw a touchdown to jennings and into the 4th quarter, the 49ers looked like they were going to go ahead for good in the tip pass into the hands of jalen ramsey to kill that threat. the rams turned that into points and went ahead 24-17 and on this great catch by cooper kupp and nobody could stop him. so in the last half minute jimmy garoppolo brought him back from the 12 yard line to a touchdown for jennings to tied up a 24 and went into overtime and in that extra period and explosion play and jennings again with a 34 yard pass and catch into rams territory and it was good enough for him to kick a field goal and put them up 27-24 and now the rams needed a touchdown to win in
stafford deep and thomas made a play and how about that? he made the play and he got pick and the ball game was over and the niners came all the way back and got this one 27-24. >> it was fun. kind of a let up the entire game and trying to get into it and so many guys had to step it up and i am just so proud of everybody in that locker room and we never stopped fighting and it is a really good team and i was so proud of the guys. >> they used the locker room this entire week and i thought it was for both sides of the ball and whoever it is, the rams are the 49ers, somebody is leaving in a body bag and we went down 17-0 and i had five guys and i thought there was a lot of time up on the clock. and hopefully i can see that. >> here it is, the first round
matchups. next week and the 49ers will head to dallas and play the cowboys and the time and date to be announced. the first postseason meeting with the cowboys since the nfc title game back in 1995. and then there is the raiders. at the chargers as we speak and vegas is in the league tournament and other games of significance, the season ended at the jacksonville jaguars and the colts needed to win this but instead they're going backwards with the carson wentz sack and the ball is out and hamilton recovered. they cashed in and it wasn't pretty and lawrence off of a high snap hit jones for a second touchdown pass and jacksonville got it big in the game 26-11 and they clinch the number one pick of the draft and the colts were eliminated from playoff contention. and how about ben
roethlisberger. he hoped this day would not be his last for the steelers any trailed baltimore in the fourth quarter and then hit chase for a go-ahead score and he had to tie it and send it into overtime and ben roethlisberger navigated into the extra period and a fourth-down completion put them into field-goal range and a nice grab by macleod and boswell banged the lock off 36 yards 16-13 in the steelers won it in with a record of 9-7 minus one, they are somehow still alive and they will be watching tonight's game in vegas for sure. how about a segue to basketball? what will they put up in the pac home game with oregon? there were issues. like sydney perish there in the corner and she had seven three- pointers and 88-53 and the bears at the start of the conference play at 0-2 and
covid issues with the beavers and the warriors and clay thompson a big season debut tonight part of the sunday night game day show. how about that? the 49ers have 10 wins in the regular season. >> game day is after the 11:00 news and we will see you then, vern. coming up in the next half hour, a faulty space heater sparks new york city's most devastating fire in three decades. what we know tonight. the state allowing healthcare professionals to work a positive for covid and the reaction tonight. why one ucsf expert said they
you are watching tran eight at 6:30. >> it is hard to fathom what they are going through. we are learning a faulty space heater that started a fire that ripped through an apartment holding that killed 19 people including nine children and the inferno was the city's deadliest in decades. good evening. >> we report from the bronx where people are trying to make sense of the devastation. >> reporter: the fire that swept through a bronx apartment holding sunday is one of new york city's deadliest in more than three decades. >> i never expected 2022 to come in this way. >> reporter: the blaze took the lives of adults and children
and injured dozens including several and hospitalized them in critical condition. >> my entire department mourns along with the families here today and our entire city and we are all about saving lives and the loss of one life is sad for us. >> reporter: officials say firefighter some victims on every floor of this 19 story building and were rescuing some who are in cardiac and respiratory arrest. >> that smoke. >> reporter: about 200 firefighters responded after it broke out around 11:00 sunday morning and this resident said people fled their apartments and took temporary shelter in hers. >> the fire department got there and they couldn't get us out and they said follow the stairs until you see light. >> reporter: they say it'll originated on the second and third floors caused by a malfunctioning electric space heater. >> the fire consumed that apartment that is on two floors in part of the hallway. >> reporter: the commissioners of the firefighters found the door open to that apartment which allowed smoke to spread through the 120 unit building. and out of the coronavirus and a controversial new
guideline that allows california healthcare workers to go back to work even if they test positive for covid-19. as we report, healthcare workers are not please. >> it is a major disaster waiting to happen. >> reporter: healthcare workers speaking up around the state raising concerns over new guidelines released today. >> i think it is a very callous, and it is putting our patients and ourselves in grave danger. >> this morning the state department of public health declaring all healthcare workers who test positive for covid and show no symptoms may go back to work immediately without isolation and without testing. healthcare workers who were exposed and show no symptoms of the virus may also return to work immediately without quarantine and testing, but they must wear a mask that is letter and 95 and the rules go in place today through february
1. >> it is scary the idea that we could be transmitting covid to the people we care for every day. >> reporter: dennis anderson is in his 20th year as a phlebotomist and works now with dignity health. >> when you step into an er right now or you walk through an icu, geg undated. >> reportealwithon-cov is, theyo it is march 2020 all over again . i brought these concerns to the state and representative didn't respond to my question about whether the guidelines could expose patients to covid- 19 but wrote due to critical staffing the shortages currently being experienced across the healthcare system because of the kpix variant, the california department of public health is temporarily adjusting the return to work
criteria. >> and order for us to be able to take care of our patients, we need to be in the best of health. and going to work, you know, sick, very well knowing we have the virus would not be a good fit for our patients. >> taking a live look at the state capital. governor newsom will unveil his plan for the state budget tomorrow but he has already announced $2.7 billion in funding for renewed efforts to battle covid including expanded testing, vaccines, and outreach in the governor's plan includes 1.2 billion dollars for expanded testing signaling the singular focus away from vaccines as a prescription to end the pandemic. >> we put all of our eggs in the vaccine basket and that is speaking from somebody who
believes in vaccines and the power of vaccines but you can't neglect other things and it is important to prepare and do that in multiple modalities and not just vaccine boosting. >> the new covid battle plan is multilayered with 1.2 billion for expanding testing sites and at-home tests and 625 million is for testing and vaccination programs in the state prison system and also includes investments in vaccines and medical personnel. >> the money being spent seems appropriate right now because about 50% is earmarked for testing and that is kind of where i think a lot of the anxiety is, and frankly, testing is not only used for diagnosis but also for prevention. >> the governors budget significantly increases funding to battle the virus and it is up $1 billion or nearly 60% compared to last year. the state is taking aim at price gouging at at home covid
test and a new executive order prohibits selling kits for a price more than 10% of what they cost last month. and new sellers of the kids can't price them at more than 50% of what they paid for them. and now and update on this accident, caught on camera in brazil. authorities say 10 people are dead and 32 injured after a slab of cliffs rock suddenly toppled onto boaters in a lake yesterday. authorities believe it likely broke off due to erosion and recent heavy rain. we also have video of an inferno ripping through a refugee camp in southeastern bangladesh and the flames burned at least 1200 homes leaving thousands homeless and most of the refugees that live there escape a 17 crackdown in miramar.

materials to make furniture stuck in the ports. >> the truck is showing up and they said you ordered 50 but we only have five so then they have to pick and choose and everything gets pushed back and you don't know where you are. >> reporter: he has done business for more than five decades and has never seen anything like it. >> the issue is there are hurdles that are unprecedented. >> reporter: he said it is affecting the whole industry from budget furniture outlets to luxury stores like his and even this relies on nuts and bolts from overseas and he and his wife are in the market for a new sofa. >> we are not in a rush to get it but he is in a rush to sell it. >> reporter: in some cases customers are reupholstering just to get by and he said he has his own backup plan. >> if there is something i want and i can use the word amazon and they make it their problem.

with chase security features, guidance and convenience, banking feels good. chase. make more of what's yours. at least 34 people were rescued in wisconsin this weekend after being stranded on a large chunk of floating ice. yesterday, the ice broke off the shoreline in green bay while dozens of peoples were on it and authorities sent an airboat to rescue everyone and unfortunately -- fortunately nobody was injured and by the end of the rescue the ice loaded about a mile away. and this powerful storm barreling through southeast texas overnight and a possible tornado touched down in the
community of humble leaving damage behind and the impact flipping buildings apart and downing trees and some smashing right in their homes. >> sometimes mother nature is benign as in this case. a video of a spectacular light show from finland and those lucky enough to be there in person, have you ever seen the northern lights? i was in montana on the border of canada once and you had to use your imagination but barely. but nothing like that. >> the aurora borealis lasted just a few hours but that would be something to see. since we have already brought mr. pack in here perhaps he could explain himself. i will start kind of backwards with this forecast and i will begin where the seven-day leaves off and when you look at the long-range forecast for moment goes from day eight through day 14 and you will see why am doing this in the second in terms of our chances for rain and to find it
i have to go past the seven-day and more on that in a second but if you just look at what happens next from day to day 14, probability map, which is what this is, shows you the degree of confidence and precipitation will be above average in shades of green or below average in the shades of tan throughout and we get into that moderate shade of tan so there is a reasonable amount of confidence when we finished the seven-day forecast the precipitation will remain below average at best and here is what is going on in the pacific right now. this is right off the coast and there is a series of storms lined up and you can see them beautifully. in the forecast models give you a picture of where their rain is and it goes to the north of us and none of it goes here and everything gets deflected into the pacific northwest. the totals of rainfall over the next week, that is where it will rain. it doesn't mean we still don't have things to look for out there. we do. if we look right now, there is
just a slight change in the perspective of the high definition doppler and the radar beams are able to read that far out but the forecast models do a better job in depicting what is there. so we will play it forward and this now goes to the north and we do get the clouds and that has an impact in the morning in a good way if you did not want it to be too cold because the clouds come in and we get a nice blanket overnight and the morning lows stop at 40 at the coldest for just about all of our coldest inland valleys and we will look at the lowe's here in the second in the clouds get out of here just in time for another beautiful blue sky day tomorrow so monday will be nice and highs will climb up to near 60, and it will be sunny. right now we are in the low 50s and livermore is coldest here but you don't go down that far from here in san jose goes to 43 in concorde one of the coldest at 39, one of the few places where we can see the numbers going down. the daytime highs today come
right where they were today. it will be a nice day and we keep doing that. no surprise now since we have already discussed there is no rain coming but there is your seven-day with very little change on here and you struggle to pick out a day that looks any different than the day next to it or on the other day of the seven-day from it for that matter. back to you, juliet. still ahead, and original report. johnny cash and his lost concert and the time capsule just unearthed in san fr
a big loss for rock 'n roll history, man who helped create the woodstock festival has died after a battle with lymphoma. in 1969 michael lang helped plan the legendary new york festival for four days and people were treated to performances by the grateful dead, janis joplin, jimi hendrix, and the who. >> since we're on the topic of music, a sonic time capsule has been on earth and it is bay area history that involves the legendary concert. >> it is a unique recording that captured a fleeting moment in time with the man in black and an infamous sound engineer and hundreds of hippies gathered under one roof. >> reporter: on the corner of market and then s in san
