slow you down again this morning. guys? >> sue, we've had a tragedy overnight. we've had a deadly fire. we know 50 year old man has lost his life. >> broke out in the fishtown section of the city. >> this one was fast, steve keeley on the scene in fishtown this morning, steve? >> reporter: 2016, bad year for philadelphia fire death, too, because this makes number 21, after last year's historic all-time low, of just 12 people killed by fires in 2015. and doesn't even look like any fire happened here in this three-story apartment building, right at the corner every busy frankford avenue and thompson street, where it meet another street. but you can see, light on in that third floor bedroom with the bin dough open just to air it out some. that's where the man was when killed. here is video of the scene few hours earlier, put under control, almost instantly at 3:37. smoke alarms blaring. still, not enough warning to wake that man up, and get him out of there safely. two firefighters, who rushed
in that door, where you see, as we come back to live picture, tenants returning right now, and through that doorway, there is a spiral staircase in the rear hall, and these firefighters ran up there with such might. got into that place, that locked door, so much with so much vigor that they hurt themselves dealing with all of that, and the smoke. so, they had to be taken to the hospital just to get checked out and they'll be okay, we're told. so another fatal fire her in the month of december too. always high point for fires, because of all of the christmas decorations, the candles and things like that, we don't know if any christmas decorations played a part in this. so the investigation is still resuming right now. but again at the scene every another fatal fire. let's hope this is the last one for 2016 and maybe 2017 can get back to setting all time record lower than 12. how about a big zero maybe for 2017 whether it comes to this. >> we certainly hope so. you mention, great point to
point out once again, that the firefighters do such an amazing job trying to get to these individuals. but sometimes the fires just too fast. >> steve, thank you. 705:67:89 want to talk about this developing story. we took to you aurora colorado yesterday, down to fort worth texas, seeing so many of the melees, teens with nothing better to go going on social media, basically saying hey let's go to the mall, cause some problems. >> people are behaving badly, and does appear there was common thread to all every these cases, especially an incident in our area, dave clinic kinchen, figured out there police quick on this one, was snap chat. explain? >> reporter: yes, snap chat quick posts on line, telling people where to be, and generally what time to be there. apparently the philadelphia mills mall was that place. and last night around 6:45, was that time. police will be out keeping an extra ion some things, after the last couple of night. this happening not once but twice here last night, 200
young people, 200 showing up by septa bus mostly according to police. but investigators say the cops were already on the scene ready for them to turn away most of the kids, between 14 and 16, but 30 to 40 of them did get inside the complex of course formerly known as franklin mills mall. police say three were arrested for disorderly conduct, one after he is dollars after allegedly trying to punch an officer. number of teens initially showing up last night, double that of the night before. our cameras actually caught the ends of it, breaking up outside, with number of boys on bikes, swerving in and out of traffic. and as we said, much of this starting on line with social media chatter, snap chat. we spoke with witnesses, too. >> just seen the cops flying from everywhere. and we saw the flash mob, tried to get in through jc penny but they lock the mall down, so had to go in through forever 21 to get to the mall. >> most guys, girls, phones being thrown, i seen them running through security.
security ended up seeing whether they were trying to keep them out of the mall, they just ran. >> there is also the possibility as we see with these things that as police look at the video that you just saw, and individual that's on social media, that other people could be identified and arrested later. that's something that's typically happened in cases like. >> this police also sending up a warning to parent, they say, because a lot of kids are on school break, between christmas and new years, keep an eye on what your kids are doing specially when it gets dark, as will. back to up, karen, thomas. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> developing story right now. this morning, that we are following, there has been shooting at the bar and all start wad game of pool. there was big fight over t they decided it the way they would set thal fight if he lounge 62 bar and grill, was with a gun. this was just before midnight. there is the scene, the 6200 block of woodland avenue. we know a man in his 30's was struck in the torso. he's being treated over at
presbyterian hospital. they do think that he will survive. police say they even had video of the fight that started by the pool table, camera inside, that captured the shooting. also we know man is dead after crash in philadelphia. police say the victim was driving when he was shot in the head. so you can see he crashed into another car, this is 500 block every walnut lane, mt. airy. investigators say got called out to the scene because the car ford expedition was turned over. when they look inside that is when they found the victim, 33 year old man, he had been shot once in the right temple. the other car they struck, witnesses, there one professor, saw a woman jump out of the car and run away, and throw a right jacket over the edge after bridge. so it is not clear if she was the shooter or if the man shot himself. >> he was a great man. a great uncle. a great brother. and he cared about people. he was the only man that i let
call me princess. and i'm very upset with the news, the manner in the way he got his life taken away. and i hope to god that the police find the hearn who did this immediately. >> so they are still looking for the woman who took offer. but they did finds that white jacket that she threw over the edge. and they're trying to see maybe there is some surveillance video that can help them with their investigation. >> 7:09. we are all remembering legendary actress, carry fisher. >> fisher famous for her iconic role as princess leia died in los angeles yesterday at the age of 60. >> ♪ >> (movie clip). >> just couple every days ago we got words she suffered cardiac emergency on international flight. she was coming home from
england. of course her top film critics, not only star wars, but so many other memorable fill that many we're looking back on this morning. she was also an amazing screen writer and author. she spoke publicly about her struggles with bipolar disorders and with drug abuse. >> so many members of her star wars family are paying tribute on twitter. this picture from peter, known for role obviously as chew back, a saying there are no words for this lost. carry was the brightest light in every room that she enters. i will miss her dearly. then this one from anthony daniels. i thought i had got what i wanted under the tree. i didn't. in spite of so many prayers and thoughts, i'm very, very sad. >> and this one from san all l jackson, light in the gal a, i dimmed, may the force be with her, rip. >> an apparently sin a bun hat gotten itself into hot water with fisher's death. they tweeted something.
>> sin a buns on the side of the head they thought it was funny but one of those not the time, not the place, not the way. according to a lot of people on twitter. snow is the tweet that they put out saying, quote, rest in peace carrie fisher, you'll always have the best buns in the galaxy. then they needed to back pedal that after lots of criticism. our deleted between was generally meant as a tribute but wu zero we shouldn't have posted it. we are truly sorry. >> clock 11. obama administration scrambling to defends its roll in the un resolution condemning israel. secretary every state, john kerry; about to deliver what's being called a major address this morning, on the mideast peace process? right out to bill said for explain the lateness one, because so many fast moving element as there are every day in this time and change every administration. good morning, doug. >> good morning, we don't know exactly what john carry will say about this today. but the obama administration has run into a lot of criticism from its -- israel
refuse to go block this un measure pretty critical of israeli settlement. meantime, carry is left having to kind of address this. >> with president obama continuing his vacation in hawaii, it is to up his secretary of state, john carry, to explain exactly what role the the the administration played in last week's controversial united nations vote, to condemn israeli settlements in the west bang and east jerusalem. department denying the us orchestrate philadelphia. >> we reject the notion that the united states was the driving force behind this resolution. that just not is true. >> not the driving force perhaps, but did the us play some role? the israeli government not minutes willing words here, already tens relations between the us and israel became more frayed. >> we know deep collusion between the obama administration, the palestinians, to push this united nations security council resolution forward.
that is deeply deeply disappointing because historically america has protected israel, at this very, very bias, body. >> all of this as president-elect, donald trump, has ramped up his criticism of the united nations. >> as you see, the israelis try to collect this evidence, they'll show to trump to prove to that obama both produced and provoked this resolution, this is going to be ongoing story, as we have, one president at a time, but it is a story that trump will relish being involved in. >> we'll see what secretary carry has to say later today about this. this really does underscore that frosty relationship between president obama, and israeli prime minister, netanyahu. back to you guys. >> certainly more to come on this one, dooling, thank youment always good to see you. >> it is 7:13. so yesterday, lot of us had our eyeballs glued to the tv screen watching the big bowl game. temple going bowling helping to finish one of their best seasons ever with a victory.

rest of the first half taking it to 31 to ten into the break. but they got inspired in the lockerroom. came out strong until the thirds, we had, bamm, but still trying to came up short on one of the passes right, there i think i missed up the highlight. general thing, we ended up losing, didn't come one enough. we tried hard. we lost in the military bowl. bye we are still champions in the heart, had great season. >> just keeping that eyes focused, getting that balks connecting the ball, just didn't happen. i know you said bill way going to watch the game. >> he is a temple alum, my husband s so i call myself an owl by marriage. not too happen which those results yesterday. but it still was fun. now as we say happy new year, and we will, this weekend, here is a little preview of the forecast. 35 degrees, right around midnight, new years eve, now the sun won't be shining. it will be dark. 49 degrees still in the new years day high temperature, as you are watching the mummers parade. so it would be a little bit
better. high pressure in control right now. but cold high pressure. and the 64 degrees we had yesterday, not going to happen today. it will be chillier, at least dry, see plenty of sunshine, next system out to the west. this is cold front with much colder air behind it. so, friday, we end up being the colds he is day of the week. with the mix of precipitation, we're expecting tomorrow morning, there is a winter weather advisory in the pocono mountains, they'll get all snow, and it will probably be about two, 4 inches, you see it moving in, snow to the north, rain to the south. and inbetween, that pink area, is a wintery mix, probably freezing rain, or sleet most that far will stay north every us throughout the six, 7:00, 8:00 hours in the morning, bus years hours on the roadway, but for the change-over to rain, that continues through about lunchtime. 2:00, 3:00 in the afternoon most of precipitation is out of here. sunshine again friday. that will be a really chilled sunshine, because of the
windchills that will probably be in the 20's, for the day. but tomorrow morning, got to be careful. watch the temperatures, stay with us tomorrow morning, we will get you through all of it, two to 4 inches of snow in the mountains, inch or so in the lehigh valley. before the change-over to rain. we could see brief mix every rain or snow in philadelphia before the change over, will probably happen around 6:00 a.m. again mostly rain in south jersey and delaware. now back to this morning, 37 degrees. 29 degrees mount pocono. 27 degrees in millville. a lot colder than it was yesterday. these are your wind chills, so feels like 30 in philadelphia, right now, and 19 in the mountains. so chillier day, but appropriately so for december. 43 degrees today. forty-four with that mess tomorrow morning. and 39 degrees and windchills in the 20's, on friday. it does get a little bit better on saturday, but still cold. high of 43 for new years eve. little better new years day, it looks like the shower chance is now on monday and tuesday of next weeks. that's your seven day
forecast, time to check traffic. we haven't seen much this morning, but we do have an accident to tell you about in upper merion, it is on forge springs lane, valley forge road, route 23, so avoid that area if you can. another accident, in collingdale. chester pike at mcdade boulevard. delaware county. with a injury there. the septa broad street line, southbound service is operating with residual delays, due to earlier equipment problem at all of the stations. so, slower service on the broad street line this morning. guys? >> thank you there, sue. how about this? forget the grinch who stole christmas, we have some video of people around this country, thieves, stealing christmas. >> i know we always say it is a bowl move, but take a look at this right here. really is bold. up in new york on christmas eve. you see the guys, they smash the glass there. this is at the dennis basso boutique, un err east side, very expensive place, that carries furs, some of the
chinchilla, sable furs, valued at over 100 grand. so they broke the glass, went inside, think there are about three of them. went straight for the furs, grabbed as many as they corks then ran out. >> it looks like to me maybe two of those were women. so i don't know if they were behind it or who was, hopefully they catch this. from california, video captures a guy, got his back pack right, there going under the tree. he is picky. looks like he's rummaging after someone's christmas tree, two days before christmas, trying to pick out the presents he want, home near los angeles, bag he brought from under his jacket right there, getting specific items. and police want to get this guy off the streets. that's why they shared this video. because they are hoping to catch him. >> amazon echo, you've seen the commercial, alexis what's the weather going to be like, and then she answers, well, apparently there is was very popular. high tech device, very popular over the holiday season, a lot of people have them.
now prosecutors, they're issuing a warrant for one man's amazon echo, and they're connecting him to a murder case, we'll explain that one. >> also a little boy, and he's battling a very big disease. he has cancer. he gets an amazing surprise? his hospital room. see which nfl start is -- star is that paying him a visit. we'll show you more after the break.
seasons, especially for amazon. >> people were buying up the amazon echo. in fact, producer ryan you have one, right? do you love it? >> the weather tells me my commute, has all of the details. >> live such a sad life. >> no, it is true, we love you, ryan. >> apparently, i mean, a lot of people have the amazon, and it is alexa, probably won't even respond to me. police are now using the amazon echo to solve a murder mystery. so our detective, lauren simonetti joining us from the fox business network. >> hello. >> so, yes, start with the sales. amazon had a really good year? >> it seems people don't care at all that when you talk about a smart device, a home connected device, that you're also giving up good deal of your privacy. because echo speaker sales and the echo dot, these were what customers wanted the most. amazon over the holidays
shipped more than 1 billion ever year for them. they don't even keep enough echos in stock. they saw nine times the volume from last year. but there is concern now that the echo, it listens to your voice, answers your commands, and it also records. everything that you say. the walls have ears. right? >> and that's the issue, right? prosecutors arkansas, trying to solve a murder mystery, asked alexa a question, and it started recordingment wanted know if he was talking about the murder? >> police received warrant in arkansas to get those record frost amazon. because they can help them finds out more about this case, where a man is accused of drowning a friend in his hot tub last year, so crazy story, and technology could play key part in the fact of the case. so, the question is: why is the echo continuing to record
things? amazon stores that data, they use it to perfect their voice recognition, artificial intelligence. that's the reason. but now amazon, like apple, so many of these similar cases, terrorism cases with respect to apple specially. how do you protect privacy for your customer? and also, help authorities when necessary? >> well, i think amazon put out statement they said they waited until they get a warrant in the case, not going to just hand it over just because you ask. you do need to go through the whole process and make sure to get a warrant. >> of course. >> if you don't commit murders then it probably isn't a problem? >> and don't ask al axe about it, how do you drown someone in a hot tub? terrible case. see first if they get that warrant to get all of the information from amazon see if amazon will hand it over. >> also a warning, probably change your behavior by all of your smart devices, my husband
hooks everything up to the internet. always yelling, stop, i feel like someone is spying on me, i don't need everything hooked up to my phone. but that's what people are doing. >> maybe hubby is listening to you this morning. detective lauren, thank you. >> he is definitely not. good to see you. >> thank you, lauren, we appreciate. >> does this change anything, ryan, back to our producer? are you going to be little cautious? >> no, doesn't change anything. i don't do anything that i don't want alexa to know b also, i just don't think -- i don't know how long this records after. if i'm -- if i say something to al innings a, tell me on my phone what i just said, so i assume wag it says. if i can her a question it gives me the text to my phone. so i don't think it records after. that will i don't know, i am not worried. >> what's the most intimate thing you asked alex election a? >> that's not safe for tv. >> i knew it. >> i knew it. thanks, i think a lot with technology so afraid in the beginning with e-zpass, they know where we r if you're
naught out there doing nefarious activities. >> caught with the laptops, web cam spying, who is listen? more to come on that one, see you, how amazon responds to that, because they'll get it. 7:28. buzzer beaters, hail marry he is, a n and unlikely champions, some of the mother from the world of sport this year. guess what? we will look back. specially villanova national title. >> what were some of your favorites? what do you think should be on that list of the best sports moment? see the #fox29goodday.
movie clip (. >> she was so feisty, and funny, and just would speak power in the movies and in relief, an icon, actress carrie fisher has died at the age of 60. we are remembering her as princess leia, and so much more. >> we will look back. also ahead this morning, holidays nearly through. why not consider giving your wall the eight break? sounds good. financial checklist helping to you save big in 2017. great to have you with us. >> morning. >> you got off the egg. >> thomas makes fun every me, doing the whole six hours, mike and alex are off, time to
gross him out. >> looks like a foot, sue? >> hard boiled egg smell. ya, they may be good. but yum. how about chocolate cannedy? wouldn't we much prefer that? we know it is healthier. but anyway. temperatures are in the 30's, 40's, and bus stop buddy more bundled up than he was yesterday. because it is a lot colder. these are your temperatures, 37 degrees, in the city. 29 degrees in mount pocono. 40 degrees in dover, delaware. these temperatures are as much as 20, 30 degrees colder than yesterday at this time. so, change your outerwear. it is abut full sunrise. we are starting to see the sun peak through the clouds. 37 degrees, but feels like 30 out there, no precipitation, no rain, no snow. lots of sunshine today. high of around 43, 44 degrees, very seasonable high temperature, four seems to be the number, sunset 4:44. play that number maybe today. that's your wednesday planner. let's get to traffic on this wednesday morning. starting off with a look at
this accident, happened in newtown township, newtown street road, 252, and goshen road, there is an injury involved there. that's in the newtown square area. so avoid that if you can. an accident in upper merion, at forge springs lane valley forge road. and the septa broad street line, southbound service on the broad street line, operating with residual delays, and that's because of earlier equipment problems at all stations this morning. thomas and karen? >> 7:33. man died in fishtown, happened about 3:00 at frank forwards and girard. firefighters had flames out in just about a half hour. two firefighters did suffer minor injuries. and developing overnight, man was shot at a bar, cops say the reason, a pool game. they had a fight. this happened at the lounge 62 bar and grill just before midnight. and they call it lounge 62 because right there on the 6200 block of woodland avenue.
we know a man, the victim, in his 30's, hit in the torso. he is in critical condition. but they do think he'll live. police say they have a camera inside that captured the whole shooting. >> we've been showing you the video, this is disturbing trends that's sweeping the nationment teens showing up at malls looking to start a fire. shear one. >> wait, wait, wait. >> chaos there. this one was taken at jersey gardens in elizabeth monday night. pen team with hurt, including two pregnant women, and two children, as they try to escape that violence, basically, it started as a small fight and someone said, well, i think someone has a weapon, then someone else heard gunshots. wasn't the case. no one had a weapon, still everyone trying to get out of the mall. >> we've had so many of these. here is the scene in texas, we had about 150 teenagers, all show up at food court at a mall. this is in fort worth. several of them were taken into custody.
they had to close the mall early. some of them are facing even felony charges. >> right here in philadelphia, up to 200 teens causing pandemonium for shoppers and workers at philadelphia international airport mills mall. police in our area say there is a common thread among all of these attacks across the country. and it has to do with social media. >> let's get out to dave kinchen, dave, a week, a loft kids, teenagers are bored, they don't have anything to do. we saw big problem with flash mobs before in our area. what's going on snow. >> yes, actually what police said, due to, in part, a lot of these kids, not having much to do. but also, social media, in particular, snap chat, and post that led teens here to the philadelphia mills outlets, and they've been having trouble over the last couple of nights, 200 people last night, 200 young people, mostly between 14 and 16, arriving here, by septa bus, police were ready, they turned most of them away. but 30 to 40 did get inside
the complex. and cause problems, this area, known as formerly known as the franklin mills mall. police say there were three arrested for disorderly conduct, one arrested for allegedly trying to punch a cop. the number of teens initially, showing up last night, double that of the night before. our cameras even catching it ending when we saw several boys on bikes swerving in and out of traffic. so, even some of the spilling out on to the roadways, and much of the starting with snap chat as we said before we talked to witnesses, too. >> when i was leaving, they were all up here at the bus stop waiting for the bus. >> so was it just kind of kids stuff? >> teenagers. >> getting out of control? >> i heard, when i was in the mall, the kids talking there was bunch of fights, probably five i heard about. >> when they got in the food court area, that's when they began acting disorderly. this yes running around. jumping on tables, chairs, yelling, and screaming, and just caring on, and acting disorders errly.
>> social media really exacerbating all of this, when we see a lot of these things that have happened, and at least ten other areas, ten other reports, as we had talked about, of similar melees at malls. we can tell you here at philadelphia at the philadelphia mills police say that they're not only going to keep extra ion things, but they want parents to actually talk to their kids, and make sure that they know where their kids, are specially, when night falls. back to you. >> we have parent, have to stay on our kids, know where they are, because if you leave kids alone for too long, they'll just make poor choices, bumm decision. >> look at the social media, even if your child doesn't like t see what they're doing on twitter, instagram. >> what else is out there? >> all it takes is a moment, right in the you take a little time out. makes big difference. so young boy battling cancer, gets amazing surprise in his hospital bed. we are going to tell you which nfl star paid him a visit. well, there you go.

behind the trees there. un for the lip, we have an accident to tell but in newtown, township, in delaware county. newtown street road, that's 252, and goshen road. and an injury involved in that crash, and in collingdale, chester pike at mcdade boulevard, also, an accident with a injury there. so, take your time, out there this morning. on those smooth running roadways. let's see what the forecast is, we'll let you know in 15 seconds. >> this is for tomorrow morning. winter weather advisory, for the pocono county, pocono mountain counties every carbon and monroe. we expect wet winter weather, 5:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. great for the ski resort.

lug nuts tight. >> i thought you called triple a to change these tires? buddy not with triple a then? i thought were you my local triple a guy. look at this, he has in his hand, remote control that goes to the jack. and he lowers it. and look at. that will he got it right on there. and candice, how much time do we have for budd toy put those lug nuts on? oh, buddy, she said 45 seconds. you can do that even faster than that. by the way, more lug nuts, than you have in your normal car. that sounds like we're in a pep boys now, doesn't it? the sounds as soon as go into pep boys, even buying an air freshner, that's the counts sounds you here. if you're little kid, it is cool, you like the smell of tires and you like that sounds. if you're a kid, you can come here, friday morning, pit party it is called, right? >> absolutely, pit party is two hours before the show. you can come down on to the floor, get all access to, you know, take pictures right beside our truck, take pictures with with us,.
