in east oakland have started reopening international boulevard after a grenade was found overnight. the bomb squad just determined the grenade is nonexplosive. "today in the bay's" christie smith is live on international boulevard. what's happening now? >> good morning to you. i spoke with one oakland police officer saying, given what happened in boston, they wanted to be extra careful. this was very suspicious. a grenade sitting on the corner there. if you can see the red sign, it was a neighbor that spotted it. they shut down international at 48th and called in the bomb squad. now, a sergeant with the sheriff's department here in alameda county where the bomb squad is from, quickly determined that the bomb was inert, that it wouldn't go off. he showed it to us and said it was from the vietnam area. a neighbor saw that just before 4:00 this morning and police came in. they shut down several blocks between 47 thd and 50th. a sergeant tells us that someone
probably threw it out of the window of a car to share someone. >> this is an inert hand grenade. it looks like somebody threw it out of the window of the car maybe to scare somebody. with he knew right away it was not live. >> what tells you that? >> you can just tell by the look of it. you know right away. all the functioning parts are not even there. >> reporter: in fact, it had a big hole in the bottom of it which would normally be filled. within an hour, the street was back open. they tell us that sometimes people keep these sort of things as memorabilia, not totally uncommon to find them. he says it is a misdemeanor to place it out on the street like this. he picked it up with his bare hand and said he was going to take it back. the bomb squad may use something like this for training. reporting live in oakland, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> we also have breaking news from boston where we have just
learned the suspect in the boston marathon bombings is no longer in the hospital. 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev has been moved to a prison facility in central massachusetts. he is still recovering from a gunshot injury to his throat as well as other injuries. giving us this aerial view of that boat where the suspect hid out from police before he was eventually taken into custody last friday. we have learned tsarnaev was not on when police arrested him. he stands charged with killing three and injuring more than 260 others by setting off pressure cooker bombs on april 18th. 6:03. fire investigators are trying to figure out what caused a historic building, once home to faber's cyclery to go up in flames. there is fear it could collapse
because of damage. >> investigators are saying. >> reporter: you can see that. the structure is compromised. the fire department didn't even go inside. at one point they thought they might need to go inside. the fire started a little bit before 9:30 last night. you can see in these pictures, the flames consumed the upper floor, destroying this landmark in the downtown area. this building was built in 1884. for 101 years, it was home to
faber's cyclery until it shut down this past february. one reason it burned so easily is because it is a victorian. >> the old victorians have the type of construction that allows the fire to travel through the walls. it can travel from the first floor to the attic. fire travels a lot faster in these structures than conventional structures. >> reporter: a couple other reasons why this fire was a little bit challenging for the fire department, not only because it is an older structure but also because you could see it started to become compremized. there was electrical wires dangling in there. they do not know if there was an electrical problem that might have been the root cause of this fire. that's still under investigation. reporting live here in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." 6:05 right now. time to check back in with christina loren telling us about a smoking weekend. >> it is. we are going to lose this cloud cover, jon and laura.

did not make an effort to include minority contractors. a spokesperson from the city of santa clara disagrees. >> the 49ers spent millions of dollars advertising the new stadium and preparing to build it and you couldn't miss that this thing was going on. it is concerning to think that they are stating we didn't do our due diligence. >> when state and public funds are being used to support a project, that there cannot be any discrimination. there needs to be a fair and open process. >> the city of santa clara claims one minority contractor currently working on the new stadium. >> the time now is 6:09. coming up, trapped by flames with no way out. dozens dead after a raging fire rips through a mental hospital overnight. we'll also let you know what was happening on the inside that left patients unable to move from their beds. >> on a lighter note, you can dance if you want to but leave h.p. behind. h.p. don't dance.

it turns out they didn't. it wasn't true. there are no dancers. the report ran on cnn's money website. the article said hp paid dancers $25,000 to show up unannounced and show tech workers some moves. they found one case of dancers showing up at an idaho office charity drive. nobody paid any money for it. the company spokesperson said he saw the article and said, quote, have we lost our minds. i thought to myself, no, we hadn't. it turns out the story wasn't true. now, to add another strange twist to this, the article was written by the wife of david einhorn, the investment banker who has caused so much trouble for apple recently over the company's payment of dividends. other news this morning over at yahoo! the chairman of the board is exiting stage right. fred amarosos came on board after they fired scott thompson for faking the resume. he helped hire marissa myer and

fix. tracy, good morning. >> good morning, it is a fix a lot of travelers wanted to see making it easier to get out of sfo, oakland, san jose and airports all over the country that have seen delays as a result of air traffic controllers being furloughed one day every other week, which means 1500 of them are off the job every single day. they have to slow down the flight traffic and that's why people have been stuck one, two, sometimes three hours in the airport. now, washington is working on it. the senate un animously passed this. the house votes on it today. $53 million to take care of the air traffic controllers. >> we are just fooling ourselves if we think we are doing the american people any favor by not finding a real solution.
>> of course, this comes just in time for lawmakers headed home this weekend. they are off next week. they will be in their district for a week. if they go home with a fix in hand, they won't hear from lots of angry travelers who are also their constituents. >> tracy, at this point, we have to wonder. a lot of people are trying to figure out, if the money was there all along, why do the furloughs and delay vs. to happen at all. >> the way washington works, when money has been set aside for one thing, the agency can't always automatically shift that money to something else. these are funds that were set aside for airport improvements and other projects that it will take and it looks like we will see today an act of congress so those funds can be used to pay air traffic controllers. >> tracie potts, always filling us in on what's happening on capitol hill, thank you very much six brand portable members.

"today in the bay" is live on international boulevard. they are wondering what are they doing with that grenade. >> well, you know, they may end
