department argued the president has discretion to decide who covers stories at the white house. north korea announced today leader kim jong-un watched the test of a newly developed weapon but we don't know what that was. it did not appear to be a nuclear device or a long range missile. the united states may have mistakenly let tefrn know the justice department is going of by ki leeks julian sa sang. papers filed in federal court name his as a defendant. while the specific charges are not known, it's believed they involve allegations that we worked with russian hackers release e-mails stolen from the democratic national committee during the 2016 presidential election. reports indicate he's facing charges but prosecutors wantd to keep the case quiet fearing

good morning, we just got here on the scene at the bay field bart station. you can look behind me and see the train up there. it's split into. half of it is down there and the other half is there, a number of bart officials are here as well as along with alameda county fire department. here's the issue here at bay fair. smoke was seen coming out from underneath the carriage of the train on that elevated piece of track up there. no word of any injuries or if anyone was on the train at the time. it will take time to find the
source and finally get that train removed from this station so they can accept trains once again. so no trains will be coming in and out of bay fair which means to bypass it you need to take a bus from castro valley and the hayward station which will make for a long commute, likely to add a good half hour on to your commute this morning. buses just left moments ago so they are already working but a mentioned, this will take some time. smoke coming out from underneath the bart train and right now they continue to work on it. bay fair will be closed for quite a while i would imagine as they try to find the source of this fire and if you're commuting coming in from fremont area, coming down from berkley and castro valley, you're going to have to hop on a bus and it will probably add a good half hour on to your commute.
we'll give you more information as soon as we get it. we hope to talk to folks from bart as well to find out what happened early this morning. that's the latest, i'm frank mallicoat, ktvu news. now to sal with what options they might have. >> they could drive and right now we're looking at the bay bridge toll plaza and it's crowded although doesn't seem more crowded than it was before this happened. looks like it's crowded about normal which say 15-20-minute delay. the car pool lanes moving well. a lot of kids not going to school. it's looking a bit better than it normally does here on 880 on 92. looks like a stall on the san mateo bridge they removed. the traffic looks okay in the south bay. we see slowing on 880 and here and there but definitely is a lighter commute. as i looked through the bay area, another slow pact here on highway four. it's lighter than usual.
7:32 back to the desk. >> thank you so much sal. we have air quality issues for today. the smoke you can see and sal's live cameras and again, we're looking at this for another day. just as bad as yesterday. may see some slight improvement into the weekend. it has to do with the on shore breeze joining us. it's going to be a weak one but it's there and again, hopefully we'll see some minor improvement of air quality saturday and sunday. for today, unhealthy to very unhealthy now over san francisco. moving south just a little bit towards areas like san mateo and over areas of the north bay, we have it from sausalito and tib ron reporting. pittsburgh and bay point, through antioch that as well. for the rest, it's unhealthy. it will fluctuate over the course of today. not expected to get much better. the wibdz are generally light,
we still have the northeast flow meaning we are downwind of the fire so the drift still coming our way, that smoke and visibility at san francisco a mile and a half as well as oakland. in days past we have seen delays at sfo because of the smoke and haze, could be the case for today. napa reporting 2.5 miles there. the winds again generally light. calm in oakland and santa rosa, north breeze and napa. the flow from this direction continuing to have the smoke in our area for today and into the coming days. here's a look at the afternoon high. 66 in san francisco. upper 60s in oakland. upper 60s to low 70s for inland and north bay and down through the south bay. temperatures aren't expected to change a whole lot but again, hopefully a bit of an on shore breeze will help us out this weekend. in the extended forecast, rain and a look at what you can expect coming up. >> we just received new damage information on the camp fire in butte county. it grew a little more than a
square mile overnight and the camp fire now stands at an area burned 222 square miles. containment went up to 45%. the number of confirmed deaths repains at 63. still 630 people listed as missing. meantime, president trump plans to visit the fire zone tomorrow. final details still being worked out. we know the president will fly into beale air force base near the city of marsville meeting with first responders and people directly impacted by the wildfires. earlier this week president trump approved california's request for a major disaster declaration. that opens the door to federal aid. our time is 7:35 the air quality around the bay area you know it's bad. the worse we have seen since the camp fire started. many complaining about burning eyes and sore throats and people wearing masks is the new normal in the bay area.
oakland sold about 5,000 masks in one day. they had stock up on masks yesterday three times alone. the director says there's been a surge of patients complaining of breathing problems. >> so i think it would be fair to say that you could say being exposed like this is the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes. >> it's really irritating. hard to breathe. you wake up with a runny nose all the time. >> that bad air quality expected to be a problem here in the bay area through this weekend. time now is 7:36. no school today for thousands of bay area students because of the terrible air quality, this includes public school districts in contra costa, the san francisco unified school districts and schools in marin and solano are closed as well. in santa clara, schools will be open today. up in sew know ma each individual school district is deciding whether or not to close. several announced tlaifr

will be free today. two wildfires burning, the woolsey fire has burned 153 squire miles, now 69% contained. three people have died in the fire. three firefighters have been hurt. the governor and u.s. interier secretary got a firsthand look at the devastation. >> it's unsustainable to have this happen year after year. or have a season like this where you have 100,000 acre fires becoming routine. we're a great nation, this is not a republican or democrat issue, it's an american issue and we should address it as such. >> the other fire burning in southern california is now 100% contained. it burned seven square miles no deaths reported. we have breaking news we're following, a federal judge just said the white house must immediately return the press
credentials of cnn reporter jim acosta. that was issued just moments ago. the press pass was revoked after a contentious back and forth questioning period. the lawyers for cnn said the white house retaliated against him for his coverage. that violated his first amendment and due process rights. attorneys for the justice department argue the president has discretion to choose the reporters who cover his events at the white house. this morning the judge said he was issuing a limited ruling to restore jim's press pass but not ruling on whether acosta's first amendment rights had been violated. time now is 7:39. many people think of escaping to tahoe, the resorts are all opening today. they upgraded the snow making equipment during the off season.

a look at how parents and employers are handing the last minute closures. with the thanksgiving holiday travel season up and running, the impact it could have. good morning, everyone welcome back to mornings on two, i'm mike mibach. >> we're starting with a story we're covering heavily impacting bart service in the east bay. this after a fire at the station closed completely for about two hours. >> we have live team coverage this morning, sal is there in the traffic center but first out to ktvu frank mallicoat. >> all right, mike and g gasia good morning. quite a mess here at the bay fair bart station but i'm happy to report the tracks are rolling again however, they still got a train they have to
look at. it was shut down over an hour plus this morning because of a train rolling into the station. the smoke coming out from underneath the train. the undercarriage. the train has been removed but earlier it caused quite the scene. alameda fire was on hand, dozens of bart officials taking a look. nobody was injured. they're trying to determine exactly what may have caused the issue. buses were set up between the castro valley, hayward and san leandro stations to bypass. they were for a good hour or so. trains are rolling again. we are told though by bart officials to expect delays even tho the tracks are open and people are here and rolling in on the morning commute. so it might take another half an hour before you get through the station nice and smooth. but it's open as to what caused the smoke and possible fire we don't know just yet they are investigating. but the good news is station is back open.
that's the latest we're here in san leandro. limited service that means only using one track but at least the trains are moving through now. they're going to have a bottleneck there but you can get to any bart station and use the system. let's take a look at the bay bridge. i want to show you the traffic backed up for a bit here improving though. i can see the improvement, a lot of schools closed because of bad air quality and that's taken pressure off the friday commute. some are okay, 880 better than normal. san mateo bridge looks normal heading out. i want to mention eastbound 580 at 164th castro valley. the overturned car looks like the person got out. northbound 80 is slow as you approach 238 and slows for about a mile. 8:02 back to the desk.

the closure applies to all public school districts in contra costa. the san francisco unified school district, all schools in marin and most schools in napa and san mateo. santa clara county schools will be open today and in sonoma each district is deciding whether or not to close. preschools and daycares and outdoor venues closed, many families had to make last minute child care arrangements. . >> i understand there's kids that don't have access to being helped with the kids so it's very stressful for some. . >> luckily we have that assistance and i hope the situation gets resoled soon. >> we told our employees they could bring their kids to work so they didn't have to take off. >> that man manages a construction company with 108 people.
they told their employees they could bring their kids with them to work today in case they had to make last minute child care arrangements. >> other parents tell us they're glad school districts closed today because they feel more comfortable having their kids at home with them. no relief in sight however with the air quality expected to remain through the weekend. spare the air alerts have been extended through tuesday. hopefully after that you may get relief. in walnut creek, allie rasmus, ktvu news. you can ride for free today on several bay area public transit systems. rides are free today on muni. folks in san francisco can avoid walking and biking outdoors. operators and passengers not exposed to the smoke. bus shuttles will be provided on the main lines all day there in the city. in san mateo county, trans
