our developing story we're following this morning out of san jose where fire crews are on the scene this morning still of a three-alarm fire. it broke out at 1:30 this morning in an assisted living complex located at 2645 madden avenue. so it's -- we're live on the scene right now. when you hear assisted living, you think there be people who might have trouble getting out of that fire. were there any injuries? did firefighters make any rescues? >> reporter: luckily that when they arrived here, they saw
5:31 am
this whole apartment complex engulfed. they asked for another unit to come out here. they also had the san jose police department out here assisting people getting out. in fact, it's amazing that only five people were injured. no deaths in this fire. it's like you mentioned they are seniors that live here. this is senior living. so they were able to get everybody out. everyone seems to be accounted for. >> how did the fire department -- was this called? was it a spring letter system, an ought malmattic alarm or what? >> reporter: it was called in. they arrived at 1:45. they were able to get it under control sometime around 2:30. they said really it was a combination of the firefighters' work and this fire wall. you can see how the fire just basically stopped. so right here. this is fairly new construction. there's a fire wall right there that really saved these other units from getting any fire damage. there is some damage because of water and some smoke but other
5:32 am
than that, this seems to be pretty repairable in a fair amount of time as opposed to this site that was totally engulfed when they arrived. >> you can pull out a little bit more? i want to see how close any other houses are to this. >> there's plenty. in fact at one time they had to evacuate. they evacuated maybe about 40 units. you can see how there's this building right over here on this side here. very close to where the fire is at. so they had to evacuate everybody. they had to clear everybody out definitely from out of this apartment and when you think about how this whole complex is, senior living, it's amazing that there was no fatalities in this fire. >> absolutely. great work by the firefighters over there in san jose. as you can see they contained it right here and got everybody out okay. thanks a lot. also the hunt on for the arsonist in the north bay. five new fires breaking out overnight in novato. that now brings the total close to 25 fires over this weekend. police have been searching for
5:33 am
this arsonist since the first fire broke out saturday evening around 9:00 p.m. in the next few hours, firefighters were called out to put out more than a dozen grass fires set in the open space area of neighborhood near ed lynnwood hill park. the search continues for that arsonist right now. 5:33 is the time right now. want to get a look at the weather this monday morning and see what we're facing here. the approach to the bay bridge looks pretty clear. i didn't know any fog out there. >> no. the original bits we're seeing is way out near stockton in the central valley. the bay area is relatively clear. this is the shot out of walnut creek where visibility goes just as far out here as you can see. no fog to obscure the field. valley frost. sunny and mild today. afternoon time looking for low to mid-60s for our highs. then we'll keep it mostly clear and cold as we head into the overnight hours. that's kind of the wet foretoday in a nutshell -- weather for today in a
5:34 am
nutshell. i mentioned cold temperatures in the north bay. we're at or below freezing for a good number of spots. santa rosa, fairfield 30 degrees. napa at the freezing mark at 32. novato colder at 27. san francisco down in the upper 40s. you had been at 50 degrees earlier. 38 in concord. 34 or 38 i should say in oakland. 34 in concord. 35 in livermore. so it's chilly, primarily in the valleys to the fort and to the east is where we stand the chance of maybe even seeing some frost this morning. so just keep that in mind. this map here just kind of indicates how cold it is this morning compared to yesterday. take a look. novato and santa rosa 11 and 12 degrees coppedder this morning than -- colder this morning than we were this time yesterday. 14 degrees colder in napa. 19 fairfield. you get the idea. it's awfully chilly out there. this afternoon although it will be colder than it was yesterday, it will still be pleasant. we're still looking for low to mid-60s throughout much of the east bay and the south bay. we're looking for 64 in livermore. 36 hey ward. mid-60s in oakland. same story for san jose. 66 the expected high there.
5:35 am
downtown san francisco will be about 61 degrees. we're looking for 61 as well in richmond, in valeo n napa, in fire meald. then it -- fairfield. then it warms up slightly as you head north. should max out 66 this afternoon. here's the wider view on the satellite. low pressure system headed to the parve northwest. a lot of rain -- pacific northwest. a lot of rain up there. a small bit of it on the bottom side of the system is expected to break off and head our way. depending on which track it takes will determine whether or not we're going to get any real rain. at most, though, we're only expecting a tenth of an inch out of it. so nothing much, not much rain there. high and dry at least into the weekend. i'll break it down in detail for you coming up in my next update. for now we want to get a quick check of traffic. good morning. all is required is a quick check this morning because we're not tracking any hot spots no major problems or delays. seeing a bit of a backup form are here in the left hand cash lanes for the bay bridge. that may mean we're back to something more closely
5:36 am
proximating normal traffic flows here. we definitely think that the volume is going to be up over the last couple of weeks. at the san mateo bridge a pretty good ride. it's still early for this ride. the golden gate bridge 101 southbound, northbound problem free here as you head to and from marin county. a quick check of the traffic maps shows the east bay ride here. interstate 80, the 680 ride heading through the san ramon valley, dublin 580 westbound no delays. south bay freeways as you can see look good with no problems for your trip heading northbound on 101. and your ride through marin county on 101 southbound is still delay free with a 23- minute drive time in the south bound direction. let's get to the kron 4 newsroom. here's the latest. we just learned that the hyundai elantra has won the north american car of the year award and the land rover, range rover evoke won the north
5:37 am
american truck of the year. the national auto show is happening right now in detroit. they have just anded out these -- handed out these to top award -- these two top awards. [ crickets chirping ]

something in the air wick. in national news, it has been one year now since the deadly shooting in arizona that killed six people and wounded 13, including congresswoman gabby giffords. bells rang out yesterday to mark the exact time that this happened one year ago. about 30 people gathered at the grocery store where the attack happened in the parking lot. on saturday giffords and her husband former astronaut mark kelly visited the scene ever the shooting as well. they also visited the hospital that she first went for treatment. giffords made a rare public appearance at a candlelight vigil at the university of arizona as well to honor the
5:41 am
victims and the survivors. there she is. the democratic congresswoman stepped on stage as well and the crowd cheered and she also led the crowd in the pledge of allegiance. >> we'll be right back as the kron 4 news continues. we're going to go live to novato coming up after the break. we have an update on the two dozen arson fires that have been set in the 48 hours -- in the last 48 hours.
5:42 am
5:43 am
5:44 am
5:45. our developing story out of the north bay now. five new fires have broken out overnight in novato. this brings the total now to 25 fires in novato over the weekend. to get you more, let's turn to jackie with the latest. what do they think is going on here. >> reporter: they're actively investigating right now, darya, to figure out the person or persons who started over two
5:45 am
dozen fires in the last 48 hours. this all started on saturday night, early sunday morning when about 20 fires were set over in the south novato boulevard area. they were quickly extinguished, all of them spall little brushfires. -- small little brushfires and then again last night, early this morning, five new fires. one off redwood boulevard where three small fires were set in a wooded area. then at the rush creek open reserve which is completely across town in a new location. another fire was started over there. in fact, you can smell the smoke in the air over in that location. a very kind of desolate location in unincorporated novato. investigators from the fire department along with the police department are going to be actively searching to figure out if this is all connected and if so, who may be setting these fires. >> when you refer to the desolate area at the end there where the latter fires happened, you said 20 fires
5:46 am
around the boulevard area. that is -- that's not empty at all. there are plenty of homes over there. >> reporter: yeah. there's lots of open space but there are lots of homes around those open spaces. that's obviously the worry is that this person or persons who are setting these fires may be setting them in open space but as you said, right now everything is really dry and there are lots of homes and condominums and apartment complexes in those areas that if this thing were to take off, it could really pose a real problem for firefighters. but other than that, obviously 20 fires in 24-hour period obviously investigators really want to get a handle on this and figure out what's going on and who may be committing the crimes. >> at this point it hasn't come close to the homes? >> reporter: it has not. relatively not close. the other -- the fire that's going on right now is in the rush creek open reserve, that's -- if anybody is familiar with the area, it's kind of a hiking
5:47 am
area for a lot of people over in that location, mountain bikers and things like that kind of a remote area, unincorporated. not much around there but lots of fuel in that area, that's for sure. >> thanks a lot. now to the weather forecast with james fletcher as we all wait for a chance of rain. you see the camera shaking a bit. this obviously something firefighters are watching because it's gusty up high. down low it's not so bad but we do have a system headed our way for tuesday evening that could stir up the winds just a little bit. we'll be watching that as well. this is a look at the next 24 howrps. we're starting off clear and cloud. valley fog a possibility. mostly sunny conditions this afternoon and mild temperatures with highs in the low to mid- 60s. this evening we'll cool it back down again keeping it mostly clear as we head into the noafer quite hours. temperatures -- overnight hours. temperatures right now pretty cold, in the upper 20s in novato. 32 napa. 30 in fairfield. at or below freezing for a good bit of the wine country to the
5:48 am
north. our inland valleys to the east also on the cold side. 35 in livermore. that san ramon valley along 680 and that livermore valley stretching out along 580 toward tracy really chilly this morning with temperatures flirting in the low to mid-30s. down in the south bay slightly warmer but not by much. 39 in san jose and 37 currently in freemont. 74 in san fran. take a look at how temperatures should develop throughout the morning. at 9:00 the sun will have been up for at least an hour and a half. we're looking for conditions to be slieptly warmer than -- slightly warmer than 40s and 50s. by noontime mainly 50s with a few 60s popping up. by this afternoon around 2:00 we're looking for wide sped 60s. again -- widespread 60s. again the range will be in the low to mid-60s. clear skies. we're looking for a nice day today. it's tomorrow that things get a little dicey for us. this is the system bringing a lot of rain to seattle and portland. the lower edge of this thing they're expecting might break out. we're talking about meteorologists with the national wester service.
5:49 am
