6:03 am
first thing to think about is high fire danger. it's in effect. secondly, it is the first spare the air day of the summer. the bay area air quality management district issues a spare the air day when air quality is forecast to be unhealthy. meteorologist christina loren tells me the east bay is the only portion of the bay area where extreme unhealthy air. so keep that in mind today. still, all of us are encouraged to stay inside as much as possible and limit our driving, this means it may be a good day to carpool, walk or bike to work. if you think it's been warm more often than not you are right according the noaa the first six months of the year the hottest ever on record. >> worsening conditions across much of the inner mountain west through the central plains and into the ohio valley. that's having a lot of impact on the ground with wild fires and also with agriculture. >> reporter: the extreme conditions in the east are being blamed at least for 74 deaths

6:05 am
the kids' attorney says that reiser is capable of generating income from behind bars as he is a talented computer scientist. right now he seems to be focused on defending himself. in court documents he says he killed his wife to defend the kids from harm. the attorney said that it's ludicrous. one analyst said expect fireworks. >> any time hans reiser enters a courtroom there is going to be high drama. you never know what he is going do next. the jury, by seeing the way hans reiser acts in court, may punish him and reward more money than they may otherwise. >> reporter: the children are now living in their mother's native russia. reiser has subpoenaed them to appear but it's doubtful that they will come. they have not had contact with their father since he was convicted. reporting live in hayward, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> 6:05. an autopsy has been performed on a 3-year-old boy killed in an

6:09 am
