remains were discovered at a cemetery. why is that odd? well the bones were on top of the ground. near 12th street and broadway. the medical examiners saying the remains are very old and apparently these types of calls come in all the time. the grave sites are eroding and the site it really doesn't even look like a cemetery. fires across the valley have communities on high alert this morning especially after chandler police call two fires over those homes were under construction. officers don't have a lot to go on right now. all they'll say is that two teens were in the area. and a condo fire in gilbert. a $30,000 reward is available if you can help the feds and local authorities catch this guy. police say a person of interest was spotted near the site of that fire back on october 15th. back here at the live desk.

law insurance companies they couldn't deny coverage. so really a lot of sick people. they just signed up for the coverage. the problem was healthy people they did not. so many companies they pulled out. they lost money. they got out of those exchanges. that's why you're seeing such an increase. but there is help available for those who qualify. >> it's important for people so re for health insurance is not the price that consumers actually pay. financial assistance is available to help consumers pay for the cost of the monthly premium. >> okay. so this year about 75% of arizonans who have that marketplace planned they do get financial assistance. the thing is that number could go up. we're live in mesa abc 15. so whether we officially are

the investigation into hillary clinton's e-mail server is ongoing. the fbi saying it is moving ahead with urgency as it begins the examination of these newly discovered e-mails. cht hillary clinton's campaign arguing that the fbi's director is applying a double standard the candidates. >> than one involving the democratic nominee for president is nothing short of jaw dropping. >> hillary clinton's campaign manager speaking there. the white house says it will nooesdz defend nor criticize director james comey. apparently she only learned of the investigation on friday says she learned it through the
