'02, and breaking news from overnight. there was a
8:03 am
massive fire that damaged several businesses in a strip mall. yeah. broke out in mountain view about 10 o'clock or so last night crews. >> were there all night long proper sarah stinson got there really early this morning to check out the damage for herself. what are you seeing, sarah? >> fire crews remained here into the morning and now fire investigators have arrived. you can see their truck behind me. they're going inside taking pictures trying to figure out the cause. you can really get a better idea of how much damage has been caused by this fire that big gaping hole in the roof caused by the flames that were roaring last night. take a look at video we have of the damage inside there's about 5 different businesses in this strip mall. and unfortunately none of them can return to business today because they have all of this damage to deal with the owner of the strip mall was here apparently last night. i just talked to the chief of the mountain view fire department. he said that of course, this is
8:04 am
devastating. but they look forward to, you know, renovating and rebuilding and moving forward from this. not an ideal situation to, you know, be told, hey, come down here. you're strip mall is on fire and now the damage is very bad. the fire department suspects that it's going to cost at least $500,000 to fix this roofing in all the damage within these 5 businesses. now they're investigating the cause. but last night it was just really about getting the flames under control and preventing them from spreading into the nearby businesses here. this is 9. '03, el camino royal. there's a hotel next door. there's an enterprise rent, a car. so they're making sure that it just was contained here. they got the flames down and they did that by using the lateral trucks, the fire control from above to just get that water down and stop the flames from spreading. now let's hear from the fire chief who talks about
8:05 am
this fire and potentially the cause. >> the >> the fire chief diaz. he said that when this happens in strip malls and it starts in that area. it just spreads so quickly through the other part of of the other stores in that strip mall. so just continues to spread now the fire, as i said, still under investigation. they don't believe at this time that it is suspicious. but of course they're still investigating and they're trying to make sure they have a confirmation of where it started and how it happened. so they haven't released what they believe it to be. but they believe it started in the middle. and as you heard just continued to spread now it's all about recovering trying to figure out how much it's going to cost to rebuild. unfortunately
8:06 am
for the people who rent in a strip mall its business means they have to pause business and kind of just wait till they do rebuilt here. so it's definitely going to be a devastating time for them for now, reporting live in mountain view. sarah stinson back to you. thanks a lot ask tough. >> also following another fired to second breaking news story this time out of san jose where 8 people now without a home after a fire broke out early this morning on south sunset avenue was about 03:00am the firefighters got on scene. they say trees, several of them caught fire in front of a home and then those flames eventually spread to the attic of that house right next to it. the cause still under investigation. they don't know why those trees caught fire in the first place. and 30 years ago today we saw a lot more catch fire. the oakland hills fire storm which killed 25 people. >> and injured more than a 100 others. see in the video there. how intense those flames were back in 91 that firestorm still fresh in the minds of many today kron
8:07 am
four's will tran is in oakland for us up in the hills as we remember that catastrophic day. well, more than a day. will it burn for a long time and what it taught us and how it changed. firefighting. >> it was a game changer. in fact, this was not around back in 1991 day, specifically built this fire station because they needed to be here in case another fire rips through this area. we will talk to the assistant fire chief coming up at 9 o'clock is in route to talk to us. and he was actually on the front lines at the time as a firefighter will be interesting to hear his personal account when he saw the flames up close and personal and boy, did he and many other firefighters see it up close and personal. it was a game changer because amazing, as it sounds that everybody was on the same page at the time. even the fire hoses from city to city county to county did not line up with the fire hydrants. so even when they got to this location, they could not plug in and start.
8:08 am
>> fighting the flames. now it's an industry standard they're also on the same wavelength as far as communication back then, they were not so. >> it made catastrophic situation even worse. more chaotic because they had to learn as they go. how horrific was this fire guys. by the time it was over. 2800 homes went up in flames. 437 apartment units. more than 150 people were injured. 25 people killed. it was so bad that the embers actually flew across the bay and landed in san francisco at the niners game that day. it actually started the day before with a grass fire that was not completely extinguished and then on october 19th 1991 it started in the race through this area. there are lessons that they learned from it, unfortunately took a horrible disaster for them to learn. >> highlight the great things that have come about that
8:09 am
terrible tragedy, which is government. a community partnership. the relationship that we have now with the north hills community association, fire safe coalition. the establishment of our core and search emergency preparedness programs has been instrumental for us to ensure that what happened 30 years ago with the loss of 25 boxes and happen again. >> and that was berkeley's fire chief. anything that could go wrong that day, guys did go wrong, including there are so many cars on the streets at the time. it is very narrow and windy as you go through the oakland hills. as you know, there were so many cars blocking the path of ambulances and fire trucks through this area and some of the cars are actually parked in front of the fire hydrant. it took out power, took out power to the pumping stations because if you live in the oakland hills, you need those pumping stations to bring water to this location. also by the time it was over as far
8:10 am
as the price tag, i mean, you can't put a price tag. obviously on lies. but as far as the damage 2.5, 6, 2, 0.5, 6 billion dollars in today's money back in 1919, 91 it was estimated at one 0.5 billion dollars. keep it here. 9 o'clock. we will talk to the assistant fire chief. it will be interesting to hear what he has to say. i'm sure today's pressure to him. >> and for most people because he was on the front lines. back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. well. >> 8.10, right now and here's big story as you're wondering about a booster shot. the fda is expected to tout its okay to mix and match. >> covid boosters. for example, if you got a moderna, you could get a pfizer booster. they did a study of people who originally got the johnson and johnson shot and they found if they got the moderna booster, they saw other antibody levels increase. the fda could authorize the moderna booster as soon as this week. and as you know, they already authorized the pfizer booster.

8:46 am
at this fish again, found that lauer looking for yesterday the one that forced the lockdown of 2 elementary schools nearby killers yesterday just in case you're alarmed rights. they this is one they already knew was out there. th y had a hit, a tracker on his if you can make it out in that shot there. but he's got a little tracker on his neck fission game knew all they are able to track him down. they darted him with a tranquilizer. >> give him a little map there where he they checked him over. make sure he's healthy and now they're hoping to build a release him back into the was so big. >> and that was a big catch. good that the kids all got in school and sheltered in place and the safe for everybody. california is reporting its dries your nearly a century. we're talking about rain that's on the way and in the meantime, we're looking back at the rain that we've had. and it turns out that last year up until october of this year. we barely got 12 inches. that's it. that's about half of what we typically get. >> in any given year. in fact, the last time it was that bad. you gotta go back to 1924
8:47 am
right now. 87% of california is under extreme drought conditions, which is a second to. we're still here in the bay area course we're seeing a bit of both extreme and exceptional drought and the way that we're getting this storm actually, giannis says the best way you don't because you think. >> i would think i'd be like. >> just let up eyes. and no, that's not the way to get the rain you needed to seep in slowly, right. exactly. especially with all the cars. we have to the last thing you want is a heavy downpour to get inches and inches of rainfall in one day. >> is not a good thing. too much of a good thing too fast. so spreading it out like we are is actually really good news. we're starting things relatively light tomorrow as well as thursday friday. we'll kick it up a notch friday morning and then especially sunday night into monday. that's when we've got our heavier stuff expected and we certainly do need it because as we've been talking about drought conditions have just ever expanded across the state. the worst category of drought, which is that deep maroon groups, most of the bay area that's exceptional. and
8:48 am
in the lighter red, that's extreme drought your second worst category. it's certainly not just us across the state of california either but really much of the western us in general. so we all could use some rainfall, especially us back here at home. and we're getting it. so today, get out there, take advantage of what will be a dry day. greg cloud cover gradually increases over the course of your afternoon. setting us up for a mostly cloudy finish to the day and then rainfall really arrives. well after sunset tonight won't be until after 08:00pm to 09:00pm for the north bay which will be our first bought to tap into it after 10 to 11:00pm for the rest of the bay area and then through the rest of the evening into early morning hours of tomorrow. expect widespread light to moderate rainfall 05:30am. tomorrow. starting to see taking its back a step a little bit. but it will resurge at times on into your wednesday. as you can see into wednesday evening, isolated pockets of moderate rainfall popping right back up on into thursday, more of that, too. so this is your prolonged light rainfall. that's kind of in and out over the next couple of days really picks up
8:49 am
again thursday night into friday and then our best dose of rain, at least for the work week is going to be friday morning. you can see the big picture set up here. so there's your lighter showers wednesday and thursday. rainfall picking up into friday morning right here. it's going to be a wet commute friday morning. but that then things dry out the rest of the day on friday. saturday starts dry saturday night rainfall picks back up and that sets us up for the big finish on sunday. night into monday which will be this heavy rainfall that will have to start your work week on monday. so we've got some wet commute ahead of us today is not so much that way. 50's and 60's for your highs near the coast 60's for most of our bayshore cities, although we do have some low 70's on the peninsula from foster city down to redwood city temperatures in the south bay. mostly mid to upper 60's. today. it's another cool fall day. great for the sweaters in the light jackets before you pull the rain jackets and umbrellas out from this point forward so no mats 66 today antioch. it's 71. while santa rosa through mill valley each in the 60's tomorrow's highs a
8:50 am
little bit cooler. but the biggest change is obviously going to be the rainfall that returns thursday. we continue that rain friday. we start with it before drying out briefly friday afternoon into saturday saturday night rainfall returns and sunday into monday being the heaviest of it. reyna. john, thank you for that. and yet a busy morning. all throughout the morning. multiple hot spots. these 2 will tell you about. >> right in the same area. 7.80, eastbound that ramp to 80 west that connector ramp. it's that alternate would be top on highway 29 to get around that. the other one, 37 eastbound just east of skaggs island road all lanes there. blocked on the eastbound side. so highway 12 will be a good alternate for you. there. also some other accidents if you're accidents there. 5.80 westbound east of 9 8th avenue and then 8.80 northbound north of high street in oakland. so again, both highways pretty impacted at this hour. a little under 19 minutes as you make your way into the city right now and in the south bay 8.80, southbound south of
8:51 am
