this home. there's a pile of degree that the firefighters pulled from the garage. that's the area where they believe this fire started. what the fire chief describes out here is nothing short of heartbreaking. inside this home, four people were living. a mother, father, grandfather and 2-year-old child. when firefighters got on the scene, they say the mother was outside screaming to them that her baby was inside. firefighters got inside, but it did take them a few minutes because they had to cut through a security gate. once inside, they found the father in the garage. he was down there because he was not feeling well and didn't want to get the rest of the family sick. the fire started there and then the upper floors filled with smoke and intense heat. the house had smoke detectors that were working. they may have woken up a little girl and a grandfather. do you think she woke up? >> probably. probably woke up and was
disoriented or heard noises and went in towards the bathroom. that was my question, too, but she was old enough to be able to walk. wasn't in a crib. probably between 2 and 4. >> reporter: you think make smoke detectors woke her up? >> smoke or the smoke detectors. she was out of bad as was the grandfather. >> reporter: the child was pronounced dead at the hospital. the grandfather is nighting for his life. he's -- fighting for his life. he's in very critical condition. the firefighters say it the conditions would -- say the conditions would have been hard -- were hard. firefighters found the fire here on 18th avenue. when they got here -- i want to take you live to the gate in front of the house. it's a metal security gate. you can see where they had to cut through it and use a metal
saw. there was plate glass behind it. they said that has two locks on it. the garage door had the fire in it. they had to cut through that area to get in. it did take an extra three to five minutes to get inside the home and get to the people inside. this very difficult day for them as they try to figure out how this fire started. really in most cases, they say they don't have fatal fires when they are working smoke detectors. they don't have fatal firefighters to get here. they have a lot of questions to be answered. live in san francisco, claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. we're findth out more about the -- finding out more about the deadly stabbing of a dodgers' fan wednesday night. the father of the suspect claims it was self-defense. this photo shows the victim. jonathan denver at fort bragg at the ballpark with his father hours before he was killed. san francisco police have arrested 21-year-old michael montgomery of lodi in the attack. in an interview with the lodi newspaper, montgomery's father claims the stabbing was self-
defense and that denver had hit his son over the head with a chair. an 18-year-old detained after the stabbing was han be reeseed -- released. police are still searching for two men see -- seen running from the son. jonathan denver thought about joining the military, friends say. >> he was a great kid. come over all of the time. talk about the dodgers. he had brought it up that he was thinking about joining the military. >> friends say denver took the day off from his job to be with his father and brother at the game to celebrate a family birthday. expect tight security at at&t park again because of that stabbing. last night, giants' fans paused for a moment of silence in memory of jonathan denver. >> please rice and remove your caps -- rise and remove your
caps and join us for a moment of silence on behalf of jonathan denver who tragically lost his life last night. >> police officers are patrolling the stadium. some are wearing dodgers ago gear. some are in plain clothes. >> it's really sad. i know all of us hate to hear something like that. we take this as serious as anybody and -- but when it comes down to it, it's just a game. >> the giants released a statement saying there's absolutely no place in our community for this type of senseless violence. people who live in a south bay mobile home community are waking up without gas service. it's been that way for nine days in oak crest estates. janine de la vega joining us live from san jose to explain what's going on out there and when they may get some relief. good morning, janine. >> reporter: good morning, dave. we've had people here in this mobile home park come up to us
and tell us how frustrated they are with how long this has taken. they fault the park owner. pg&e turned on the gas late yesterday. but there's still no service here. residents have been living without gas service since wednesday of last week. so there's been no hot water for showers or cooking and no heat for their dryers to do laundry. it started when pg&e found several election and shut the gas off. they said it's the mobile home park's responsibility to do the repairs. even though pg&e has restored gas, the meters still need to be reassembled. management posted a notice saying they are gonna start doing that sometime this morning. some homeowners are fed up and tired of waiting. >> at night, it's particularly cold and we have no way to heat. we don't have any little space heaters to use and i can't afford to buy one for one incident. >> reporter: you're gonna stay in a hotel?
>> yeah. >> reporter: some residents partly blame pg&e because they claim the utility didn't respond fast enough to do inspections after repairs were made by property management. others are mad at the property owner. investment property group based out of southern california. the residents say they pay a surcharge as part of their rent for maintenance and don't believe the gas lines are being properly lined. the latest from the property service here is gas dart dart property management here is gas service is supposed to be restored. we'll bring that part of the story to you. janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. a huge fire is burning at a hay storage facility in yolo county. it's burning in winters about 20 miles near vacaville near
the highway. here's more. >> reporter: good morning, tori. yes. the sun is coming up. i didn't think this could get more impressive but the pictures are stunning. let me give you and overview. this is the fire that's literally burning right next to interstate 505 north of winters. i want to focus on the smoke. watch this smoke cloud. it's impressive as it continues to go through. the one thing you have to be concerned with is what it is doing for visibility on i-505. if we can pan down to the flashing lights. what you will see, just about ten minutes ago, you could barely see those flashing lights because pat times, the smoke from this -- because at times, the smoke is lofting over the interstate and causes a slight visibility problem for those traveling northbound and southbound. we have updated information on what's going on. this is called the hay kingdom. what it is, is a hay processing plant. they say other people compress
the hay down to tighter, smaller hay bales to be sent oversees. what's on fire, ten acres worth of stored hay. we understand that not only have three structures been destroyed but also one of the two presses here that presses down the hay. that building has been destroyed. firefighters remain on the south side of the fire because the wind is pushing the fire that way. they are trying to protect the other structures. but at this point in time, the economic loss at a very conservative estimate. $6million but 10 million, 20 million in a fire that could burn for several more days. firefighters say there's no way they can put the hay bales out with water. so it will be several days before they get the fire put out. back to you. >> mike, i have a question for you. we have -- a director drove by and said he could feel the heat
from the fire. are they gonna keep the road open, 550, because it's kind of surprising to see cars driving by so close? >> reporter: earlier when the winds were higher and thicker over the interstate, the highway was doing monitoring the traffic going through. the winds have died down. smoke is not much of an issue. but from a looky-loo standpoint, you will feel it, you will definitely see it and for now there's no plans to close the interstate at this point in time, so, yes, you are gonna feel it driving by. >> mike la sell drive in winters. thank you. the giants have a reason to fear the beard. did you see this? weird incident happened at the ballpark last night between brian wilson and the team's president. also, some surprising impacts of a possible government shutdown. the reason california's
national park could lose millions every day. a major street in san francisco has just been shut down because of a terrible injury accident at goff at pine we have crew on the way but this is a good area to avoid, you might want to use other routes instead. we'll let you know more about what's happening there. there's a 20-degree difference, anywhere from 40 to 60. it all depends on the breeze.
now giving a very animated speech at the moment. kyla campbell is in washington, d.c. where bay area congressman john garamendi weighed in on how the looming government shutdown could have an impact here. >> reporter: garamendi said when the government shuts down, the national parks close and the bay area economy suffers. >> the presidio, i'm not sure they are gonna shut down the highways. they can't do that but all of the activities there, all of the activities north up in the marin county area, yosemite, all of those things are gonna be shut down. >> reporter: california's national parks bring in $1.1 billion a year for the local economy. that averages out to $3.2 million lost every day the parks are shut down. garamendi also said bay area residents on fixed incomes should watch out. if there's a government shut down next week, he says people who collect social security and
disability should expect their checks to be delayed. nancy pelosi is scheduled to talk to reporters in 30 minutes. i will get her reaction to the shut down showdown. i'm working on that story for you at 8:15. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:17. it's looking like the federal government may end flooding flood control efor thes along the napa -- efforts along the napa river. the last thing being built is oxbow. anything beyond this is being deemed too expensive. that means miles of flood walnut creeks won't be built -- walls won't be built. watt final flood work, certain areas will remain very susceptible to flooding. the ncaa is on its own in a lawsuit involving college sports stars.
it involves whether athletes should share in the money made. the ncaa may take the case all the way to the u.s. supreme court. they also recently announced it would not make a version of its extremely popular college video game last year due to this ongoing legal dispute. we're hearing that the nsa targeted some prominent americans for surveillance in the 1960s and '70s. martin luther king, junior is among the public figures who had expressed criticism of the vietnam war and had his overseas phone calls and cables monitored by the nsa. the information comes from documents the nsa was forced to turn over to researchers at george washington university. another target, the man right there, mohammed ali who converted to islam and refused
to be drifted as a conshe enshis -- conscientious objector. let's go to sal. >> this crash has blocked goff street which is one of the ways to get over -- or get down to the market street. a lot of people use goff street to head to market street. you can use van ness as an alternate. it should be a pretty good alternate. our newschopper2 is on the way and should be there in just a few moments here. if you know san francisco, he's probably maybe two minutes away from this crash. we will bring it to you as soon as he is there. i want to talk about another tragic accident. we'll come back to chopper, by the way, when the chopper gets there. this crash in atherton on middlefield near glenwood has middlefield road closed elk grove. a male pedestrian was hit and
killed according to authorities. police are actually responding to this and are doing the investigation. this is close to menlo atherton high school. and it's gonna be tough for you to get there if you are dropping someone off or if you are driving there yourself. also take a look at the east span of the bay bridge. right now the traffic is going to be okay on the span. but there's a small delay at the toll plaza. and newschopper2 is almost there at the -- at the crash here. this is actually van ness avenue. chopper, can you pan to the left? so this is actually -- this is actually van ness avenue that we're looking at. if you pan to the left, one block over is where the crash is, we'll get this straightened out and come right back to them. let's go to steve. sunshine, cold for some. 30s 40s.

but i would imagine, this is a pretty -- for those who don't know san francisco, this is a pretty busy area. >> gough is one of the major streets -- remember when they took the central freeway down, gough used to feed the freeway. a lot of people use it to get to from lombard down to market street and the freeway. right now, the alternate is van ness avenue. that's always busy. but more details are coming up on this. we'll have more on this coming up. >> yeah, right, certainly. we'll stay on top of that. oracle team's usa's incredible come back thrilled many yacht racing fans. after initial concern, it turns out the america's cup was a big hit with san francisco business leet leaders -- business leaders. the race provided a financial boost to hotels and businesses.
