hospital. as we mentioned, she's in critical but stable condition. her parents were taken to the hospital with less serious injuries. >> we see the children all the time. i would see them in the morning -- going to school. it's sad. it really is sad. >> reporter: we've seen neighbors come back to take a look at the damage. while neighbors are pulling for that girl, the cause of the fire is under investigation. you can see all the debris left over. one of the things you can see here is burned pages of a book. you see there are things strewn out on the front line. you have a lot of people asking questions as to how this fire started. also more concerned about the well-being of that little girl and her parents. now live in west oak lane, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. >> you are looking at dozens of
nurses who began a two-day strike. nbc 10 was in drexel hill where the nurses hit the picket line. they're calling for more staffing to improve patient care. keystone health system issued a statement that reads in part we are disam pointed the union has taken this action. we're ready to meet the health care needs of the community. in montgomery county, police are searching for vandals who broke the windows of cars in jenkintown. this happened yesterday afternoon between the 200 block of rodman and cloverly avenue. investigators believe the vandals used bb guns to shoot out the windows. new this morning in new york, police in brooklyn are looking into possible vandalism as a mostly jewish cemetery. last night a local politician snapped these photos of the toppled headstones and authorities on the scene. police hate crimes division is on the case. it could be the latest in a rash

did this controversy eclipse the president's address to congress this week and is it sidetracking his agenda? >> i think it absolutely did. i think russia is absolutely on the verge of consuming this presidency. it's i think becoming a major distraction on capitol hill. i think the question is going to be how do republicans figure out how to compartmentalize this distraction? >> moderateder chuck todd will be discussing the trump administration's alleged rushing yeah connection with exclusive guesting senate minority leader chuck schumer and republican senator marco rubio.

alarm if a child were to run in front of or behind a school bus. the state education department says it's working with the motor vehicle division to develop the regulation. 10:30 on this sunday. staying safe on spring break. next, if you're planning to head south for warmer weather or will be traveling around the world, we'll tell you about some advice to help keep you and your kids out of harm's way. also, tops on the big test. several pennsylvania schools had some of the highest scores on the s.a.t.s. we'll tell you about it next.

are, mid to upper 30s about as good as we get. somerton at 38, chestnut hill the same. in the suburbs, doylestown 39 degrees. we sneak in just a few 40s, 40 for easton, 37 for allentown and mostly sunny. in new jersey, trenton at 40, hamilton 38. sunny and clear conditions through delaware, 37 is the forecast high in smyrna. if we look at your hour-by-hour forecast, today will be clear the entire day. there's no changes on the map. we'll hold the sunshine as we go through your sunday. overnight into your monday, we'll start to bring in scattered clouds. monday is going to be partly to mostly cloudy, but it will still be a fairly nice day with temperatures starting to pick up. notice you're seeing spots of green as we go overnight into tuesday, mostly to the north of us. that's going to be some moisture that starts to move in as we get into your tuesday afternoon and evening, we'll see showers pop up in the forecast.

sun, don't let down your guard. >> you don't want to get overseas and start talking to strangers or get caught up with someone who may not be representing what they say they're representing. >> reporter: that could cost you money or more. in mexico, if arrested, you're assumed guilty until proven innocent. as of now, the state department hasn't reported any urgent travel warnings, but it's always a good idea to check. while you're at it, register your travel plans with the government. why? >> by doing so the u.s. embassy in the country where you're traveling has the ability to reach out to you should something terrible happen while you're abroad. >> reporter: stateside do the obvious, be wary of crowds, leave the excessive jewelry and cash at home and don't publicly post where you're going. >> there is safety in numbers. >> a lot of this, of course, is common sense. when you get caught up in the fun and excitement it's easy to forget the little things.
