6:06 am
proper sarah stinson is live for us in the city this morning with more on what workers can expect. good morning, sarah. >> especially when you have such a large, you know, office we're talking sales force tower. the tallest building in san francisco and they have several other buildings as well. so they've got to have some precautions in place, including testing twice a week and the people coming back their old volunteering to do so. and they're fully vaccinated. so these are going to be the people who are most eager to get back into the office. those who are ready to do so. otherwise employees can still choose to work from home through the end of 2021 sales force as the office will be open to fully vaccinate employees who wish to volunteer employees will be put into groups of 100 or fewer. >> working on doesn't need floors in certain offices. there are a ton of safety protocols, including required covid testing twice per week which is available on site. sales were sour in san francisco will be the first u.s. office to reopen for this company. eventually sales

6:10 am
other fire happened which is basically human activity. i know that the pastor of this church. when i spoke to her last week. she had mentioned that there are a lot of homeless people. a lot of times they've been broken into because these buildings have been vacant for a while and it's pretty easy to break into cars are old buildings aluminum type windows that can open up pretty easily. so that might be a factor in this, but we still don't know. and of course, i'll try to talk to investigators when they come back out here try to figure out what caused this midnight fire. back to you guys. thank you for that. you only sad to hear the church has been going to that >> 6.10, is the time. and coming up on the kron 4 morning news family and friends are honoring a man who was killed in a violent attack over the weekend in san francisco will explain more about what happened in this case. plus, as we move deeper into the wildfire season. several counties across the bay area are taking steps to

6:32 am
right now. they basically boarded up the area. but you can see this some of the charred this right there. it's still unclear what cause this fire. but you know, is just building right next door to the one that caught fire last week thursday. in fact, let's just show you some video of that fire now that fire was really big it like within 40 minutes of the 2 story building basically burned right from the first and second all way through the roof. now that one was avesta gators said that was caused by human fact they're saying that maybe somebody was basically sleeping in the crawl space of the church area still unclear whether it was intentional or by accident. but it was definitely being, you know, done by human activity. now, this one that happened this morning. we still don't know what caused did of vesta gators are expected to come out here in about an hour to take a look at it. something
6:33 am
to know about this whole the nas arena church it's basically in transition. so most of these buildings are completely empty. that's why no one has gotten hurt because it's being a developer has just purchased this area and they're going to be knocking down these buildings so they can build a income housing. it's definitely in transition. nobody's were nobody was in the bill or i should say no authorized people were in the building. like i said, we don't know what caused this one last night and now hopefully i'll be able to talk to some investigators that maybe they really give me an idea what actually caused this fire. back to you guys. for that report. you >> 6.33 on the clock. another big story this morning. grass and brush across the bay area. so dry the fires obviously can easily spark and spread temperatures don't even have to be extremely hot at this point, san jose fire crews, in fact, had to bring this 10
6:34 am
acre brush fire under control yesterday after it broke out near canyon creek area right along singleton road, fire crews blamed the dry conditions on the fires ability to spread the wind didn't help. no homes were damaged. thankfully nobody was hurt either. but obviously another reminder with really careful now as we're getting deeper and fire season. exactly. james now over in the east bay contra costa counties. >> taking a proactive approach to their fire season. they are there cutting down trees and brush to help get rid of all that fuel that can easily offer. as we know, parts of the east bay covered in steep hills and thick brush and part of that is in orinda where will tran is this morning in the effort today will to try and cut some of that back. good morning. >> good morning, james and rain. a look at the hills next to me is starting to dry out and we know that we're still approaching the heart a fire season. so the best way they're thinking is try to start a fire as best as possible. fish ranch road. you can see right behind me with the side here. they will begin
6:35 am
in about 90 minutes from now. this a go fund fish ranch. road. >> through auld tunnel road. it's a few miles of area that they want to clear. so take a look at your screen. this is important for you to now. yes, this is not a major thoroughfare, but there are a lot of people who still uses. and if you happened to be caught up during work. you could be backed up for about 20 minutes or so. so keep that in mind because it will begin at 8 o'clock this morning and goes all the way 4.30 this afternoon. what they will be doing is to try to remove all that dry vegetation on the ground there because it's not a matter of if, but when a wildfire will happen. so with that dry vegetation, acre really spark up and then raced through the hillside, get to the homes. in our end to the businesses. so there are thought is star of a wildfire removed things on the ground and high up in the air. they
6:36 am
will also have crews to try to clear as much space between the power lines and then the skies. so maybe create about 3 to 4 feet. room above the power lies in case those lines sparked that there's nothing above it for it to go on fire. and then if it happens to fall on the ground. james and and we've seen this in the north bay. if it happens to fall on the ground. hopefully it won't fall in an area where there's dry vegetation so they want to remove that as well. they will have a lot of equipment and manpower in this area. so be mindful of that 20 minutes is not a lot. but when in this area remote when you're used to going through that could back you up. so keep that in mind once it begins, i will bring you live pictures. but this is what basically the public works department is doing that. they've been telling homeowners to do to try to create that defensible space in this particular case, it's for the city over render release in this section of the
