5:33 am
they are still very busy with the main effort which is fighting this fire. we did ask him about how the chilly weather and the winds have been playing a role in this. here is what he had to say. >> the wind really wasn't an issue. the biggest problem as i stated before were the wires that were hampering the firefighting efforts. because of safety public service, electric and gas responded here, they shut off the whole grid so our firefighters could operate safely so we could mitigate this incident. >> eight homes burning, still burning at this hour two and a half hours later. this is going to be quite a scene for a little while here. this is around olden avenue. the fire itself was happening on wineberg place. we're told not only homes were burped but also cars as well. some of these folks not even sure what they are going to be able to go home to. we're talking with more people and the fire chief at the top of the hour. >> thank you. 5:33.

5:36 am
decade. >> that's insane that a public figure can do that and just not have a care in the world. it's just unreal. >> authorities released ciach and will mail him a summons for his arraignment. we've reached out to the mayor for comment but he has not yet responded. if you have the nbc 10 app you were one of the first to learn about the mayor's arrest, you can download it free before you leave the house and get breaking news and exclusive content on the go. mondays are always a little harder an an eagles loss, eagles beat down. >> the birds lost to the other birds out west in seattle yesterday. csn's jillian mele joins us live to break down yesterday's match up. when they were 3-0 i thought they were a lock in the playoffs, now they are a .500 team with six games left to go. i don't know if it's going to happen. >> you are with a lot of people, vai, a lot of people aren't sure if it's going to happen. we got super excited when they were 3-0 and unfortunately now we see what's going on. this is a team that we expected them to be before that great
5:37 am
start. so i think it's important to remember that. guys, it was a tough one yesterday, a lot of people were ragging on me last week for not being super confident on the eagles to pull this one out. unfortunately it was a struggle, especially for one player in particular, nelson agholar. he caught a pass that ended up being a touchdown but that was taken back. you can see the coaches on the sideline not to happy. next drive nelson agholor with another drop. there is a go fund me page a link that was tweeted to me calling for people to cut him. so people are very upset. zero catches for zero yards yesterday. 7 yards in the last two games. unfortunately, guys, you can see right there this is one of those problems. i will give nelson agholor a too
5:38 am
tiny bit the credit, i gave him an a plus in the way he responded in his comments after the game to reporters in the locker room. he took responsibility. he said, i have to get out of my own head. vai, you know what that's like, sometimes it's just a game going on in your head and you have to escape that. >> i know that all too well in my career. jill, i'm watching this game and you're too young to remember this, but it reminded me of the body bag game i think it was 1990 against the redskins where they were just carting people off the field left and right. there were so many guys carted off the field yesterday. obviously we don't know what this is going to do -- it's not going to be good for the rest of the season when you have so many guys missing now. >> you can handle the loss if it's the way that you're mentally thinking about this but what you can't handle is having a guy like darren sproles injured. he was taken out during the game. he is your number one guy right now as far as your go-to, a guy you can rely on the run game and short passes, ryan matthews has
