presumably trying to escape. the smoke detectors were blaring. the toddler t 2 1/2-year-old girl, was located out of her bed, steps away in a bathroom. but unfortunately she was taken to the hospital, she died. firefighters say this all started about 1:30 this morning when they arrived they had a tough time getting in. that's because there was an iron security gate out front. they had to break that down. smoke and flames inside. there were four people home. a father sleeping downstairs in a basement in-law unit. apparently doing that because he had a cold or flu and didn't want the baby to get sick. the mom had been working, she got home late and was up as well. she was able to escape all this, but the grandfather was taken to the hospital, he is last listed in critical condition. the father died, the toddler died. we spoke with the fire chief about how it affected everyone.
>> everyone's hurting a little bit this morning. this is not what we are in the business of doing, we're in the which is of saving live but we know this is sometimes an outcome. we had a rescue squad performing search and rescue. the mom indicated that there was people inside and i believe particularly saying her baby's inside. >> reporter: the mother is okay but firefighters are hoping to speak with her more later this morning. right now they are doing overhaul and bringing items down, out from the in-law unit. they say this is where it started but they aren't sure how it started so certainly that's part of their investigation. they don't suspect anything suspicious. we asked if there was a kitchen down there that might be a source. they said no, not as far as they know. very smoky fire to fight and hard for this is firefighters. some have small children.

clear to start your friday. happy friday everybody. temperatures and wind combine to make it feel cooler than the true temperature so you have a wind chill factor. calm in san jose, almost and gilroy. throughout day we're going to see these winds increase. you've got a north wind keeping your temperature mild. you're in the 60s. we have plenty of 50s. you feel 59. 46 in nova due. you wan see the wind create as substantial difference. 43 in gilroy. 51 degrees in livermore. we're into fall and you can probably notice, the leaves are changing color. it doesn't have anything to do with hot or cold. it has everything to do with daylight. as days get shorter, sun rise at 7:02. the sun will set after 6:00 p.m.
that's what makes the leaves change. 80 degrees inland bay side, 77 at the coast, 72 degrees. good looking weekend sunday into monday we're tacking showers. i'll tell you where and when we have the best chance for that. first of all good morning to mike. >> good morning. we had an issue at the bay bridge toll plaza. one of our cameras is out. we have a backup. i noticed that we see the backup pointing to the backup at the metering lights. they just turned on about six minutes ago. there is the backup. i was watching because it looked like one of the cars was not moving. it's going back. look at the maps and see the approach. you have a slowdown from just where the overhang on the approach to the bay bridge, tells you what are fast track and what are cash. you are backed up.

it could come on monday. >> scott, you are looking beyond that. >> and worrying beyond that. we have to look beyond all of this. we were talking yesterday about this, jon. it really bears repeating. ineffective congress shut down government before. it's the debt ceiling that's way more worrisome. neither budging on that. if the government defaults on its debt, something it hasn't done since president george washington was in charge, it could cause enormous economic problems or at least we think it will because it hasn't happened before. we don't know. it's happened, say, in ecuador. think about how worried we got about portugal or italy or greece. if greece defaulting makes wall street crazy how about the united states. that's part of what's driven the markets lower. thursday we did see a slight wind. it's google's birthday for the second time this m. all kinds of ways to measure.

growth of a beard. i think that looks like a big brillo pad. probably scrub rust off your car. >> how do we know he wasn't just saying how is your family doing, how are the kids. >> very passionate. >> keep up the good work, larry. >> 6:19. >> defender of the beard. >> what can i say. temperatures looking good right now. it is a cool start in the north bay. we're in the 50s down in the south bay. we don't have as much of a shake to this camera this morning as we did yesterday at this time. that is an indication the wind has substantially dropped off. but they are still coming out of the north and as a result we have that red flag warning continuing all the way through 3:00 p.m. let's talk about what we are expecting at your local airport. not much oust sfo, without fog and the winds decreasing no flight delays friday and across

chance of showers north of the golden gate bridge. south of the golden gate bridge, 10% to 20% but i wouldn't be shocked on monday morning when we meet back here to be tracking a few showers even in san jose. 81 in concord, 72 in san francisco. that's room temperature. looking good there. and the seven-day forecast shows your temperatures are going to climb. then drop off as we get the area of low pressure sunday into monday. look at this, mike. beach, 69 degrees on saturday. you can't boat that. >> also this perfect weather because of the fog fest this weekend. ghootsing to be -- they are known for the fog on the peninsula. looking to the south, we'll talk about 101, we have changes here at 880. and stevens creek. slight changes to the off ramp

and the family decided he should sleep down there so she wouldn't get sick. that's where they believe the fire started around 1:30 here on 18th avenue. the father, he was pronounced dead at the scene. firefighters tell me that the mom had gotten home from work late, a few hours before this started and even checked on the girl that evening. then a short time later there was smoke and flames coming from the downstairs. firefighters say that they had as she said a tough time getting in so there was some delay. and the fire chief, she was able to take a look inside and described the conditions and how tough it must have been for that little girl and her grandfather on the top floor. >> it would be difficult. even for us, we're trained and we go in with partners. it's difficult to navigate. >> we're back live. firefighters are still going through the home, boarding up the downstairs garage area, they also tell me that except for the

the next chance is sunday night into the first part of monday. then monday afternoon we could see a stray shower move into the south bay. i'm watching that for you. the chance is slim but it is there. very real chance. keep that on your radar. getting into the next few days. tuesday, wednesday and thursday, we will climb back up to seasonal averages, the mix of sun and clouds. we start to get those storm systems. let's check on your drive. >> good morning. we'll talk about the slowing, now we have a gentle build for 280 and 85. it's 101 that saw early slowing because of a five-vehicle crash northbound. they cleared some lanes but we've seen this slowing that built up and has stayed there. plan for delays north of 880, from the international airport into toward about with montague expressway. we're following an incident on the peninsula. the freeway 101 and 280 moving smoothly though we have a report of a stall northbound around
