people who lived in the home here behind me nor any firefighters. the bad news, the home is a total loss. let's take a look at the map. the neighborhood in bay point in contra costa county, the fire broke out around 2 a.m. this morning. a man, woman and another man all inside the house at the time. they smelled smoke, they got out. one man tried to fight the flames himself with a garden hose before firefighters showed up. he was unsuccessful. firefighters took over and they had a lot of challenges because the winds were pretty high here overnight and they were blowing this fire through the attic and that is how the fire spread to all points of the house. so even though the walls of the house are still standing here behind me, the problem is that there's a lot of interior damage both fire and smoke. so firefighters are on scene. they just called in some contractors to board this property up. and the investigation into the cause continues. but it looks like it started in a back bedroom. >> thank you, anne makovec in
bay point. a man, woman and a 3-year- old child are hurt as their car went over a cliff on the sonoma county coast. that car ran off highway 1 north of bodega bay last night. it dropped about 100 feet to the beach and that's where it remains this morning. an ambulance took the child and one adult to the hospital in santa rosa. the other adult was taken by helicopter. the driver has been cited for dui. a suspect in four cold case murders in northern california is scheduled to be arraigned sometime this afternoon. investigators believe 77-year- old joseph naso could be a serial killer. they found evidence in his reno home linking him to the deaths of young women in marin, contra costa county and yuba counties between 1977 and 1994. the d.a. would not go into specifics. >> an ongoing investigation and to invite questioning at this time could hamper those investigative efforts. >> investigators are looking into other cold cases across
the country to see if there might be a connection to naso. all the victims by the way in northern california had the same first and last initials. so did three girls who were killed when naso lived up in state new york. they are investigating. a 15-year-old suspect in the murder of a 16-year-old friend will make his first court appearance in juvenile court today. police found andy zeng shot to death in a house in san francisco's silver terrace neighborhood on sunday. they say five teens were inside the home at the time. four have been arrested. one suspect is still missing today. yesterday, 18-year-old jimmy le was charged with being an accessory to the murder after the fact. there is no motive yet in this shooting. rallies will be held today on all cal state university campus. students and staff demonstrating united in their frustration over cuts to college education. let's go to kiet do, he is at san jose state university this morning. >> reporter: governor jerry
brown has been working to deal with the $27 billion budget deficit threatening to cut higher education. the system is fighting back with what they call a day of class action. this is taking place on every, single campus, all 23 campuses. we're talking about rallies, teach-this is, marches, demonstrations, all in support of higher education and fair contracts for university employees. the california faculty association says in recent years student fees have tripled, 3,000 faculty laid off and the budget cut by $1 billion. campuses have cut classes and taken steps to reduce the number of students doing things like shortening application deadlines all resulting in overcrowded classrooms and long waiting lists. the teachers union says this amounts to students paying more and then getting less. now, they have a list of demands. they want to bargain with fair contracts, with faculty and staff. no more job losses to csu faculty and staff. they want to support laws to
make csu more transparent, cut management bloat and stop the fee hikes. most of the rallies start at noon. will it be peaceful? the union says they support civil disobedience but they do not support violence. back to you. >> thank you. kiet do at san jose state university. today president barack obama will unveil his plan to reduce america's soaring debt which now tops $14 trillion. before he goes public with that plan, he will give congressional leaders a preview. the president is expected to call for a mix of spending cuts and tax hikes including medicare and medicaid reforms and hire taxes for the wealthy. it is 5:05. >> where is your coffee this morning. i don't know. i might just dive in the whole thing. let's check weather now and i guess it's time to pay the piper because we have had a lot of sunshine and we're going to get a little rain. >> hey little bit of change in the forecast from yesterday. we enjoyed sunshine and clouds. the clouds start to build in now more and we are going to
