7:05 am
the house on the back street of me and i called 911. i knew it had to be bad. so immediately, you know, my immediate thought was to make sure that i call 911. i didn't come out, because it was just real early in the morning. i'm in my pajamas. but i knew there could not have been survivors. >> reporter: why do you say that. >> because it was thick. i could see embers, one fire coming out of the rooftop of the home. i could see that clear from my home, from my window. it it was that clear, you know , embers still on fire, going up in the sky, and it seemed to have taken a while for the fire trucks to come, you you know, to to put out the fire. >> yes. >> it was a good while. it had went on for i watched it for over an hour and a half , and it was, you know, i had several trucks on my front street and i called a friend
7:06 am
of mine and i told him because he has to be at work. he works with septa. i said you will not be able to come down this street, you know, because they have a big fire. >> reporter: right. we saw fire trucks, they were blocking all of the area streets. thank you so much, nadine. we have talk to the commissioner earlier this morning and he said that, the conditions got so bad, it was so hot, inside, that fourth row home in from the end on the the 1200 block of millick street was like a thousand degrees. that was one challenge for fire fighters. they could not enter the building at 1,000 degrees. they also had trouble dealing with the ice, because it was so cold, it is so cold this morning, that those streets were icing up. but as soon as water main contact. here's a listen from the commissioner. >> i'm here with tragic news. we have a fire this morning. after a very fast response, aggressive interior attack and rescue effort by our fire fighters and patient care by paramedics, unfortunately we
7:07 am
believe we have a fire death of a young man and as you can see behind me, crew as arrived very quickly. they mounted a very fast, aggressive, interior attack, but inside fire bidding and extended on two other adjacent occupancies. we have nine people displaced. we have one of the occupants in the hospital. and another one is inside, and again, it is just an incredible job by our folks on this very cold, very windy night unfortunately it the looks like this is despite their best efforts it wasn't enough to save this young man. >> reporter: so cold, ice, wind, that made conditions here extremely difficult for fire fighters, battling for the at least over an hour here this morning. at this point fire fighters don't know the cause. they don't even know where the fire started, they to know that is the young man in the upstairs back bedroom, when he was found.
7:08 am
thanks, jenny for that update. coming up on 7:08. three suspects in custody after police say one fired at a uniformed officer. >> all this taking place in olney. steve keeley on the the scene. this originally started with the man being wanted forearmed robbery. >> reporter: well, house fires , car fires, brutal cold and i have a happy end to go what could have been a far worse story. here we are in feltonville right here on the boulevard right next to the school. you see head start program here, playground, and that is because six hours later, bunch of kid would have been around when bullets were flying around right here on the boulevard which is one of the busiest intersections at rising sun. let's go to the video. you will see a nissan pickup truck, and 17, 18, 19, out in the cold when they should have been home in the warm bed. if not, studying for an exam today. but these kids, probably not even in school, and anymore, and what happened was they are
7:09 am
looking around in the cold, and for a victim, to rob. and can you imagine having to be out in this cold and just fighting the cold and then somebody sticks a gun in your face and holds you up. that happened to 21 year-old who managed to get to the cops and tell them about it and cops find this truck just as he explained it and find three guys n they pull it over, they stop, take off, police lose it during a small, one minute long chase, but they find the car parked, and three guys nearby. here's inspector scott small telling us what happened next. >> police did an excellent job on the freezing cold night, not only identifying the vehicle and chasing and apprehending all three of these robbery suspects but they showed a whole lot of restraint after getting fired upon the police officers for some reason they did not returned fire. maybe they could in the get a clear shot. they did a great job. they did not return fire even though they were definitely
7:10 am
fired upon and apprehended all three of the suspects. they are all teenagers. one juvenile, 117, other two are 18, 19, the gun that they fired was recovered in the alley by police. so great job by 24th district police on this freezing cold night. >> reporter: not recovered the gun with these bullets that they also found, how about that. live ammunition, among a bunch of bags of drugs on the ground , a little bone to us this bust and so they call the fire department for some help, for some lad tours get up on the rooftops here on the boulevard to look for a second gun that one of these three guys probably threw up there, to hide from the cops. and they brought in a k-9 too to sniff out that second gun. arms alarming when you see somebody packing extra bull nets their pockets with the drugs meaning they expect to fire bullets they got in the gun load todd begin with and in case they need to reload,
7:11 am
they need playing around in the pocket. if you hear somebody with noises in the always spare change but spare ammunition. good thing, i don't remember crocket and tubs being fired on and never firing back but still making bust that philly cops did in real action here overnight. >> thanks, for that update, steve. >> you have to wonder the mind set of people. we saw a couple days ago another crime scene where we saw 30 plus shell casings on the ground, ambush style, execution style shooting people expected, teenagers that are out there. >> time is 7:11. developing this morning. >> two philadelphia police officers are shaken but okay after a early morning car crash. a driver slammed in that patrol car sending both cops to the happened. it happened at 2:00 this morning near broad and snider. they are a man and woman from the third police district. it appears that the man who struck them was not badly hurt
7:12 am
we're waiting to learn what charges he might face. coming up on 7:12, president obama holds his traditional end of the year press conference today before heading to had wiz for christmas. >> in comes, as white house and president east electric trump are in a heated exchange over russian involvement the in the election, doug luzader is in washington trump refusing to accept this. >> reporter: thomas, and alex, good morning, it is a cold war all over again. we are very likely hear more from president obama later on today specifically about these allegations of russian medaling in the election last month and this is creating new tension between the obama administration and president-elect trump. so much for day tant budding relationship between president obama and president-elect trump has hit a rough patch over russia with president obama that russia may face consequents for medicineling in last months' lex after his administration specifically
7:13 am
blames russia's president vladamire putin. >> we need to take action and we will at a time and place at our own chosing. >> reporter: president will drive that point home in is what expect to be his final press conference of the year but thus far it has been his spokesmen josh earner saying president-elect encourage russian e-mail hacks. >> mr. trump obviously knew that russia was engaged in malicious cyber activity that was helping him in hurting, secretary clinton's campaign. >> that drew a swift rebuck from trump who held a rally last night in pennsylvania. >> although this foolish guy, josh ernest i don't know if he is talking to president's bam a. you know, having the right press secretary is so important because he is so bad the way he delivers a message. >> reporter: he went a step forward ask russia or somer entity was hacking why didn't the white house wait so long to act. why did they only complain after hillary lost? >> republican members of the
7:14 am
electoral college this message is for you. >> reporter: with the electoral college happening on monday a group opposing trump is now running a video with actors urging republican elect ors to defy voters and cast their own ballots against trump. >> but here's the thing with that that group is asking republican electors not necessarily to vet for hillary clinton. they specifically say you don't to have vote for hillary clinton just vote for anyone other than donald trump if that were to happen neither clinton or trump would reach 270 vote threshold in the electoral college when that happens the election gets handed over to the u.s. house of represent controlled by republicans and presumably they would vote for donald trump. back to you guys. >> it is not even likely that they would vote against donald trump. >> reporter: none of this is very likely, the associated rest did a survey of these electors and town one that was willing to flip side, you know , they may be lying to reporters about this but there
7:15 am
is no indication that there will be an electoral college revolt here. >> thanks, doug. >> you said it, it is like a movie in the headaching. >> you read all these reports about what, you know, allegations what went on during election, it is out there. it sound like a house of card elect. >> did you hear about the three kangaroos who held up a convenient store in the australia. >> have you been getting your news from facebook. >> yes. >> that is what it is. >> have you ever seen those calls there a loved one i just read on facebook about, blah, blah, blah is it true or not. >> i do get that. a lot of people share these stories. facebook is stepping up, to battle back against fake news. >> karen hepp in the news room what exactly is facebook doing here. >> we see these stories and you you can take action. when you see story you you can see this is spam or fake. we are working hand and hand and they will have have these third party fact checkers out here to help flag these bogus stories. facebook also says that it

dylann roof must answer for his crime. roof was found guilty in last years shooting death of nine black parishioners in charleston. the jury convicting him on all 33 federal charges, including, hate crimes. doctor mark tyler, pastor from mother bethel ame church joins us now. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> what were your first thoughts. >> good morning. >> i know you had a relationship with reverend pinckney and familiar with this church in charleston. what was your first reaction when you heard about the verdict. >> first of all, i thought that was quick, you know, i thought this would drag out until next year. i was happy that it is over. i'm happy for families that they can go to sleep at night knowing this is behind them.
7:32 am
the sad thing is that this verdict will in the bring their loved ones back, those nine lives are gone and their families will never be the same. >> even with the trial, some of the details coming out, we knew he confessed and had a written manifesto but hearing those details about why he target that had church in charleston. >> you know, i have to confess , there is a certain part of me that has not wanted to follow this case too closely. it is so close to home. i tell people all the time mother's man ellis mere image of mother bet until charleston the founder of mother's manual is buried at mother bethel. so, dylann roof lived in pennsylvania. you know, he could be reverend pinckney talking about me right now. that is how close it is. it is a painful story. there is no upside. even this guilty verdict will national change anything. >> what was conversation you had with the church or currently having right now
7:33 am
just about this situation, and moving forward. >> well, again, i don't, maybe it is just people don't want to talk about it, because of the fact it is so close. the it is really frightening for members of our church to think you could be so vulnerable. the it is not like they broke in. they invited him. we have bible studies. we have worship. he we want them to come in. >> he spent an hour for them praying. >> i knew reverend simmons as well, and didn't know others but to though he could spend that kind of time there and still to it, it is incredible. >> so what do you say, to some of parishioners, you know, because i have been, to mother bethel. beautiful church. the history. that is why it gets draw. you have tours. that kind of thing. how to you protect yourself because church is supposed to be an opened lays. >> we have always had security , and if you think about it, mother's manual did too. they buzzed him this. certainly after that and
7:34 am
environment we're living in a lot of congregations including ours have taken extra steps. some people just don't see but those of us in the leadership of the church though it is there because my concern is always the member who are there and our visitors to keep them safe and so that is fore most in my mind. >> does this respark a conversation we had just regarding the black church. >> in what way. >> how society, in america, in talking, starting conversation about race in america. >> well, isn't it strange, ironic, sad just across the street another trial has been going on and was dead lock. so michael slager, walter scott trial and slager was not convicted. i'm sure for people were there watching this trial, that brought a sense that even they we get the a convictions here, that in another case that seems to be, you know, quote unquote black and white, there is not a convictions. issue of race is not resolved by just this one guilty
7:35 am
verdict. if he wasn't quick, there would be an outcry. but how to we get convictions in other cases that to many people are also this brainers like the walter scott shooting >> kind of restated question here but we talk about moving forward. i want to continue the conversation on how we move forward, we mentioned race. we talk about race? how do you talk about race and mention race to your congregation. >> we talk bit all the time. it is central part of who we are, our church was founded as a result of being segregated in white church in the 1700 and it came out. the wouldn't it be great if we can say now 200 plus years later the world has changed and we can all just have one big church, but reason you have black churches this this country is because those issues have not been rehave solve. very often they become a sanctuary for people who throughout the rest of the week can't find that kind of support. >> it shows their importance. >> when it comes to other am e church's cross the country have you been in contact to keep their memory alive of
7:36 am
some of the victims. >> so listen, we lift them up all the time and your big connectional meetings around the country and they are never forgotten. the facebook is, just go to facebook to any of folks, people are talking about this. a lot of people are happy there was a conviction. they want to move beyond it. but like me are talking about other issues as well. great dylann roofies convicted but what about michael slager. >> does church have a opinion of you talk about the death penalty, life this prison. >> us being pastor on facebook calling for death penalty for dylann roof and others say life is enough. i think you'll find same divide in our church as you will throughout the rest of society but at the even of the day whether he dies or not, it is not going to change the fact that he has ruined nine families forever. >> and sanctuary in so many ways for a are the of families and a community there in charleston. >> good news he didn't get what he wanted. he wanted a race war and he didn't get it. >> thank you so much.
7:37 am
>> reverend tyler, appreciate it. coming up 7:37. >> sue? >> we have a cold morning, that is under statement of this season, coldest morning of the the season, so take bus stop buddy's advice and cover up as much as possible, chills around, zero out there, we will give you numbers, temperatures are in the teens. but factor in those wind and it feels colder then. that wind up to 6 miles an hour can make a temperature that is in the teens feel like 7 degrees, and that is where we are right now. when sunshine we will stay in the 20's all day long, and then enough of a breeze, that it will feel chillier then. that it won't be as windy as yesterday but bob kelly don't let your guard down it is still dangerously cold. >> 7:37. southbound on i-95. don't let sunshine fool you. this is 16 degrees out there crossing south, we have a disable right here in the construction zone at cottman avenue. and rough go for the, trains,

8:55 am
the top of your car make sure that they secure the tree, with the twine, to the roof racks. the front end, the trunk of the tree, toward the front of the the car so weight is evenly distributed. very important. road debris is a cause have of vehicle crashes. so if that tree goes flying, it can cause a crash right behind me and that is not how anyone wants to start the holiday. >> because everybody swerves to avoid hitting it. >> of course. >> tie it good. don't drive with one hand and hold the tree with the other hand. >> absolutely in the both hand on the wheel at all times. >> we will turnaround here and we will put a new tree there. because of our equipment freezing, we have the tree burning and tree burned so fast that we had to get a replacement tree in here. so, megan, i know you gave me a minute back there and i'm about 40 seconds in but we will show you how quick a christmas tree can burn. look at that, perfectly good tree but we will spin it around, if you didn't see me earlier, the ogden fire
8:56 am
company raises money to support this all volunteer fire company in business putting out fires since 1923. so boost your tree, if you live any where near here, from the ogden fire company and every penny thaw pay for your tree will go towards helping the fire company. the plus they will headache sure that it is secured properly tour rooftop. they will tie it on to your roof, they might even deliver it. chris fox, turnaround for a second. i want to show, craig, we showed how quick a perfect looking tree and that thing burned up in a minute. is that the typical pine tree fire then. >> that is it. >> and they went quick to any furniture. >> really fast. >> craig's small, no relation to scott small, i have interviewed two smalls on the air, philly cop and now ogden fire chief and in relation. >> no sir. >> thank you once again. >> so we have a tree here. we will light it up with a flare. do you see the guy over there, that little elf. this is the chair i was sitting in. people have their christmas
8:57 am
tree in the living room near their nice ray more and flannigan furniture, one of the combustible and we had a fatal fire today and knows how that started but a lot of fires this time of the year start because people leave their tree, lit when they shouldn't be. craig, i want to ask you another question with christmas trees catch fire what are one of the causes do the lights catch fire. >> usually the lights? >> anytime you have lights worn, damage, get rid of it, throw it this is trash. keep from it a heater, fireplace but mess of the causes are lights. >> you shouldn't leave lights on all night. >> no, sir. >> or for hours because is it the heat from the lights. >> usually faulty wire, the outer wire, covers and broken. bear wires and here's my idea. you and i will be millionaire. you and i should have, and infomercial next year, a star for the top of the tree that also doubles as a smoke alarm
8:58 am
and fire alarms, how about that a christmas ornament. >> how about something in there that will put the fire out. >> we will have a extinguisher , our follow-up infomercial. not a bad idea to have some kind of a ornament that is a smoke alarm and, if that tree catches fire like that, that alarm war blaring. >> we will toss to it break here and keep with this shot as long as we can and you will see flames at the foot of the tree. look at this, watch how that fast that thing goes up and again that is a simulated apartment of mine. i had a murphy bed. i didn't have as good paneling but look the at these flames from a little fire to a big fire awfully fast and when that tree gets caught the rest of the housings up, and you are asleep and upstairs and left your lights on alternate because you like that christmas sense through the window from the the outside, but it could be a deadly sense , if you leave your lights on. so shut light off at night before you go to bed and probably never leave that tree
8:59 am
unattended with lights on if you can help it because, this could be your living room before you you know it.
