6:16 am
start to end the month of april. we do track some rain late in the week thursday into friday. it doesn't look to be a washout. most of the rain looks to head farther south of our area. so we'll just track a few scattered showers. 66 by thursday. and we stay into the mid-60s for friday but hey, look at the weekend. then the nats return on monday for a nice warm day, highs near 78. larry, over to you. we have a serious accident right now on the outer loop of the beltway. this is going to be in the potomac area near river road where we have three lanes of traffic closed. i want to show you our camera at the scene. that is the accident right there. you can see that we have the delays. this is again the outer loop of the beltway at river road. we understand we have two cars involved in an accident right there. we are working on information whether or not this may have been a driver that was driving the wrong way on the interstate. we have not yet been able to confirm that as you can see from this picture here, we're starting to see some delays. this is really early on in the accident right now so we expect

6:19 am
feverishly to -- working feverishly to try to bring those flames under control and try to douse water on to the flames. the fire has now been out for i would say for about a good half- hour or so. but business owners are telling me there is no electricity on this particular block so even if they wanted to reopen shop today, they cannot. on this block there is no electricity to any of the businesses. however, a lot of folks are saying that there were fire crews on the roof of this building as well. at one point we saw them chopping through the ceiling of that building and trying to get through the roof to create some kind of ventilation so they can get some water into the fire to try to bring this area under control. as you can see this is a
6:20 am
rowhouse connected to a number of buildings. so we've been seeing throughout the morning smoke continuing to spread throughout the building so a lot of business owners even if they're not directly affected still closely watching their nearby business and hoping that does not suffer damage as well. but this pawnshop here that suffered the brunt of the fire looks like a total loss and business owners tell me there is a large immigrant community that has come here to try to live the american dream, they say, frustrated and disheartened but what they are seeing. a lot of witnesses say we are hoping this is the end. the city, the mayor, city leaders and the governor calling for peace, calling for an end to this violence and they are hoping today will be that day where all this violence comes to an end. we're live in west baltimore, delia goncalves, wusa9.
