8:32 am
for all of the families involved. >> a st. petersburg family has a lot to be thankful for this morning. their newborn baby. and a hero in their neighbor. fox 13 alcides segui is live for news st. petersburg with their story. and when you hear it, you wouldn't think at first they'lled been thankful but they sure do have a lot to be thankful for, right? >> absolutely. in fact, if you talk to the father he'll tell you they are lucky to be alive. why? because they were so close to the baby right here in this room. by sliding glass door. fire itself was about maybe 15 feet away. it looked like it was here. centralized in back patio. it was neighbor who actually called 91 when fire crews go the here they put out that fire, no time at all. but then then quickly realize the fire kept sparking up and sparking up. they put a slenl hammer to that wall. they realized that this source of the fire was actually behind
8:33 am
meanwhile, the family was inside the house. you had the dad newborn and his stepdaughter inside. thankfully they managed to get out. listen in. my stepdaughter comes in and says my name, mark, mark the back porch is on fire pipe jump up, rush to the back. look outside, the back deck was on fire. so i try to put it out with buckets of water. but didn't do no good. more smoke. he had no clue obviously fire was behind the wall. he couldn'to it. but obviously fire crews did. thankfully no one was hurt. now, his girlfriend lives in this house. he lives in a separate house. he was teleme his girlfriend at 11 o'clock last night was taken to the hospital suspect she wasn't feeling too well 3, 4 o'clock in the morning she had no idea her house had this much damage. no idea of what happened. but again thankfully no one was hurt. also in terms of investigation itself, still ongoing. but they do believe it was
8:34 am
outlet somewhere behind this wall back here. so again, lucky to be alive. especially for the holidays, everyone can get together and have a great thanksgiving meal. >> true. could have been so much worse, thank you, alcides. >> so much worse. >> hillsborough county firefighters spent night monitoring a brush fire in riverview. it was burning behind publix mcmullin road even though no homes are buildings were in any danger. this was still a source of concern. it is dry out right now. all of that brush can fuel a fire quickly. if you live in the area you'll sell in the air. at least for a little while. >> dave i guess this is, time to warn everybody. i know it's dry this time of year anyway. but it's really dry right now. it's incredibly dry. i don't think people understand they think our rainfall for year we're still above normal. it doesn't really work that way around here. >> and when we get into dry season, we need every drop that we can get. now it's cooling off people are lighting up fire pits and things like that. you've got to be careful out
8:35 am
drier and drier and we start to have our problems in florida with wildfires. but it's 8:34. it's quiet. you just mention very dry outside. it's pretty. i mean that's one thing that i tend to love with november is, you know you get these crisp clear days. 58 degrees in westchase appear lot of 60s on map here 8 o'clock hour. we just didn't have yesterday. 62 in st. petersburg. brandon a place cool off so fast and warm up so fast as brandon area. they are already back to 60s. crystal river at 57 degrees. i got bradenton at 63. so is venice. ad inland locations in 50s and 60s too. including wauchula and into sebring. our forecast highs today, likely making their way back into the upper 70s. for tomorrow, we may actually touch 80 degrees in a few spots. and enjoy the sunshine it's
8:36 am
high today of around 78 degrees. give or take. tonight, 63 in tampa. and i'm always thinking because we always do like live shots from turkey trot all of that kind of thing tomorrow morning relatively mild for you runners which fantastic compared to like it was on monday. 30s everywhere. scattered clouds tomorrow afternoon. for your thanksgiving day. high temperature around 79 degrees. 80 on black friday. next 17 days, 76 on saturday, 75 on just the slightest chance of a shower. 20 percent that's it for next tuesday. vanessa. >> all right, thanks dave quick update for roadways. we'll start off with the big incident out tampa the suspicious package investigation. that's shutting down mlk and havana. we're getting word from tpdmlk will be reopened. and then havana will remain closed through the duration of this invest dpags. to we'll keep the work arounds
8:37 am
you whether you want to take tampa bay and hillsborough since mlk is now clear and dlais should start to clear out as well now that travel lanes look good. look good here major roadways. area close to the south end of the howard frankland bridge, pinellas side a reported hit and run can't find it on camera traveling times look excellent on our interstates. nasa, we should always jt over it in an at that primary goal to put humans into space. 60 years it's done a lot more than that. much of whattist created makes its way back to earth. it's helped create everything from selfie technology to memory foam. and even baby formula. >> what? >> i didn't know this. reading these articles this morning bring dave o. the science pro in to talk about 1600 to 1800 inventions every
8:38 am
1600 to 1800. not every one of them make into main extreme public. you got to go way back decades ago. they were trying to ferg out way nasa was trying to figure out a way, okay, how do we get long-term food supplies access to clean airportable water with space with is that stra naughts in confined area as well. so they started to study whae they call micro algae. it sounds kind of gross. benefits of micro algae. not only for astronauts but for every day use as well. they pinpointed dha. which is just this little compound. and they found that the fatty acid in human breast milk was known to improve brain function and visual development. right. you see it on store shelves dha supplement.
8:39 am
this is good for everybody. especially for infants. and that is why 90 percent infant formulas today use that technology that they discovered when they were trying to find ways to make it easier to live in space. it i don't want to va accidental but just amazing that 90 percent of the infant formulas today are because of t using micro algae and pinpointing dha. that's pretty cool. pretty cool. not only that other stuff like too one company benefitted greatly from this program. nasa technology transfer program. where they take their technology, and bring it down to human use toos as well. i see the practical application. john deere. john deere has lot of stuff through gps allowed them to become much more accurate not
8:40 am
so that's why when i see like budget being cut i get nervous because hey they are really helping out too and creating inventions we can use on earth. just, you're right. one example. just just one example. who knew. now we know. now we know. thank you. >> very smart people over there at nasa. rocket scientists literally. okay. straight ahead rivalry meant to bring tampa bay and orlando closer. usf and ucf are

8:45 am
so, the slate i mean there are no, there's nothing on it yet. correct. how many games have we played in rivalry? we've played seven sore. usf is up 5 to 2. those will all be filled in those will all eventually be filled in this goes to i've got quake around this check it out. this goes to the game on saturday? >> correct. >> noon on saturday. >> the trophy home. >> wow. wow. i mean, you know what, what i love about i love the fact, first of all that usf doing sos well and it's a great story. but also, that we've got this fun little rivalry going on, right? we love having this rivalry with central florida. you know, early. people didn't embrace it now it looks both sides are really embracing.
8:46 am
