burned items. this started at 3:30 in the morning at the strawberry village stopping center, the evo spa. you don't see much activity from the freeway side. the activity at the rear of the building in the spa. firefighters tell me they made sure it didn't spread to neighboring businesses as best they could. the business was closed at the time when this started at 3:30 in the morning. they tell me they had it under control within about 20 minutes. >> confined to the spa itself, small amount of smoke damage to the sushi restaurant next door. within the evo spa itself, the fire was confined to a laundry room on the back. but there's a lot of smoke damage as well as a lot of damage that we had to do when we got into the attic of the building. >> so they tell me only a sushi restaurant suffered smoke damage. that may not be opening today. the rest of the stores should be
6:03 am
just fine. five different fire departments responded to help put this out. good news here, no one was injured. damage estimates are around $50,000. at this point they tell me that fire investigators are on the way. they still don't know exactly how this started. reporting live in mill valley. christie smith, "today in the bay." new this morning, train service was interrupted in richmond overnight after a driver was thrown from a car and onto the tracks in a deadly car crash. the car was seen speeding at 90 miles per hour when it crashed just west of the central park on-ramp. the car feared off the road, crashed through a fence and overturned on the tracks. the sole occupant was pronounced dead at the scene. train service was interrupted while a tow truck removed the car. time vuning out in contract talks between b.a.r.t. and its unions. next monday we could be dealing with one of those commute nightmares out there. negotiations do continue to be stalled over employee pay raises.
6:04 am
the "mercury news" reporting b.a.r.t. workers, they are the highest paid transit operators in all of california with an average pay of $76,000 last year. but b.a.r.t. workers on the other side of this, they say their wages have been flat for the past four years. the next talks, they are scheduled to take place tomorrow. taking a live look outside on this monday morning. taking you to the south bay. looks a little schayes zi out there. a cooler start. hard to believe we're already in the last week of july. >> i can't believe august is almost here. where is this summer going? >> that's what kids are asking as back to school approaches. brand new shoes and notebooks. christina loren, cool out there today. >> right now parents out there rejoicing that school is about to start. a good day shaping up. i want to start with a picture of the golden gate bridge to give you an idea of the fog, how it is working out there. right now it's hovering above the two towers of the golden gate bridge. that's where the low clouds are positioned, but they'll continue
6:05 am
to drop. we'll let you know about the flight delays as soon as they come in. right now everything is on time across the nation out of all your major airports. sunol, as far east as we can this morning, low clouds spanning all the way inland. that's our natural ac that will keep temperatures nice and comfortable later today. about ten degrees cooler than average for this time of year which is typically the hottest point of the summertime. 57 degrees to start you out, 56 in livermore and this is the big cooling ingredient, the cooling agent today, the wind out of the west carrying that cool ocean marine air, nice moist air moving into fairfield and concord. you want to hold on to your steering wheel. we have gusts, 25 to 30 miles per hour. overall we're looking good. "today in the bay" looks like this, up to 82 degrees inland, 72 bay side and 59 degrees, a four-degree spread at the coast. that means you'll need your jacket. make sure you're ready to drive with your windshield wipers on.
6:06 am
let's check on the rest of the drive with mike inouye. >> first of all, part of the problem is the low clouds here and the haze that we see or trying to see through. these are the headlights. yes, that stream, that sea of headlights heading down to the bottom of your screen. across the screen you see the university avenue over crossing. traffic is flowing underneath the overcrossing fine. at the top of the screen, you see it bunching up. part of it is due to the optical illusion. part of that is because there's a crash somewhere in the backup. i don't see exactly where it is. golden gate field and toward university avenue is where you'll find the crash currently over the shoulder and into the guard rail from what i understand, a big rig there. coming down the eastshore freeway you have the traffic bogging down in the same area. i'll zoom it in here, eastshore freeway westbound, speeds down below 50 miles per hour, down to the upper 40s the last couple minutes approaching university avenue. the earlier crash at regatta

boulevard at the richmond san rafael bridge. we'll take you over toward the tri-valley where we have slowing as well. this is west 580 out of the altamont pass. the bulk of the slowing clearing by the time you get toward north first. still we have speeds coming down into the mid 50s approaching the dublin interchange and west 84 to the bottom of your screen. speeds slowing from val sooet seed tas toward 680. we'll look at the south bay in the next report. new this morning, this is monumental and very progressive. pope francis saying he will not judge gay priests. the pope making those remarks moments ago on board the papal plane on his way back to the vatican from brazil saying, quote, if someone is gay who searches for the lord and who has good will, who am i to judge? the pope made these remarks during a press conference with reporters that touched on a wide range of tropicings ranging from reports of a so-called gay lobby inside the vatican to what he
6:08 am

6:09 am
those are just protesters completely out of control, just a wild scene in huntington beach hours the close of the u.s. open surfing competition. the men there were throwing bottles, tipping portable toilets over, smashing storefront window, ripping bicycles on the street. that happened before police finally arrived on scenesr scene. police had to use teargas and non--neethal projectiles to finally settle everybody down. police say they had things under control about 9:30.

6:13 am
investigators are still looking into the cause of a fire at a day spa in mill valley. this broke out at about 3:30 this morning at the strawberry village shopping center at highway 101. nobody was hurt. damages are estimated at about $50,000 at this point. a deadly car crash interrupted train service in richmond overnight. the car was seen speeding at 90 miles per hour on westbound interstate 580 when it crashed just west of the central park on-ramp. train service was interrupted while a tow truck removed the car. pope francis says he will not judge gay priests. this morning he was telling reporters on board the papal plane that, quote, if someone is gay that searches for the lord and has good will, who am i to judge. continuing coverage of the crash landing of asiana flight 214 at san francisco international airport. this morning foreign pilots are being treated differently at sfo than u.s.-based pilots.
6:14 am
they're being told to use gps when coming in for a landing. bob redell live in burlingame overlooking the runway where asiana flight 214 crash-landed. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, laura. faa telling foreign airlines and foreign airlines only to use gps when landing on 28 left and 28 right at sfo until the runways' glide scopes are up and running. that's equipment that helps planes line up and land. it's been temporarily shut off because of construction. pilots should be able to land without that equipment, perform a visual approach, flying by what you see out the window. the faa lost confidence in some foreign pilots' ability to land visually not only because of flight 214 which crashed july 6 when the pilot came in too low and slow on 28 left, but also because there's been an unusually high number of aborted landings by foreign carriers since that crash including one by ava air out of taiwan which
6:15 am
had to abort because it was coming in too low. >> i think it's very unusual given the fact that it's not isolated to one particular carrier, but apparently involves multiple air carriers that they've classified as a foreign carrier flying into the united stat states. >> reporter: the equipment is set to come back up. it was shut down on 28 left when the asiana flight crashed here a few weeks ago. bob redell. "today in the bay." the beacons are made by honeywell and used on crashed planes to locate the planes out there.
6:16 am
inspections take roughly one hour to complete per plane. boeing will take that data and share it with the faa within ten days to help regulators decide the action to take. apple responding to new allegations this morning that some of the people who make your iphones and other apple gadgets are mistreated. >> scott mcgrew, this time the accusations are not coming out of foxcon. >> that's right. these newer allegations come lower down the supply chain. a company called pegatron, apple headquarters responding to allegations from the group china labor watch. pegatron is accused of failing to pay over time and poor working conditions. now, apple responded this morning with a lengthy statement saying in part, it had already been investigating some of the group's allegations, but, quote, their latest report contains claims new to us and we will investigate them immediately. our audit teams will return to pegatron and other factories for
6:17 am
special inspections this week. now obviously we have no way of independently proving or disproving these allegations, but it is worth noting. the apple of 2013 under tim cook is a very different apple when it comes to human rights and worker conditions. looks like a relatively quiet number for are wall street. the big jobs number this coming friday. another fed mooe meeting as well. tomorrow we'll get numbers about housing from the case-shiller report. last month shows the san francisco metro area led the nation in price hikes year over year of 24%. las vegas and phoenix posted huge hikes while new york city showed little movement. there's reasoning behind that, that being our area, phoenix, las vegas, got hit so hard. other cities like new york just didn't take the big hits. so they had less to climb out.
6:18 am
welcome news again tomorrow morning. >> a lot of people need that turn-around. >> very good news. lit be a while before they reach those peak numbers. 6:18. christina loren is back to talk about weather. crispy cool to get the day rolling. >> yeah. it's gong to be really refreshing. we finish the month of july this week, get into august. typically this is the hottest point of the year. go figure, bay area. we've got a cooldown headed our way. it's going to be really comfortable for your outdoor plans. you'll have to deal with low clouds to start each and every morning. they're so thick at the immediate coast that you might have to use your windshield wipers with drizzle expected there this morning. a live picture at golden gate bridge. not too bad when it comes to the fog. expecting those clouds to continue. we'll be with you all the way through 11:30 watching the weather as it changes across the bay area. the good muse is even with that full deck of clouds overhead, we have no delays.
6:19 am
clouds and drizzle in san francisco, no flight delays just yet. we're looking good across the nation. the weather system is moving into the northeast. still looking good out of laguardia and everywhere else in the northeast to start. 57 in san jose with a southeast wind at 16 miles per hour. winds are going to play a factor today. the wind is helping the fog settle right to the surface. as soon as we lose it, those clouds will start to drop. that's what we're expecting. high pressure takes a hike. low pressure moves in. this will usher in a strong onshore flow, so not just today. we're talking about tuesday into wednesday staying nice and mild winter park 70s and 80s inland. 50s and 60s at the coast. 83 degrees on the way to livermore. 70 degrees in fremont and you can't beat that late july in san jose. mike agrees. as we head throughout the next couple days, from 83 to 84.
6:20 am
by this weekend, that's when the sizzle returns. you'll still get the best of the best. >> you spend a lot of time here guys, the eastshore freeway. this is west 80. here is university avenue. you see the flow of traffic moving over toward your fast lanes. that's because a crash is blocking the slow lane as you're coming down university avenue. a minivan and trailer smashed into the shoulder there. no reports of major injuries. but it's causing a major backup coming down past the race track. can you see the sign off here? there's gray skies here. the maps will outline it. we'll show you the speeds on the sensors. as you come out of richmond into else rita, you can make the merge.
6:21 am
by the time you pass the race track and below ten miles per hour, cruising by. then you're back at the limit. you see the bottom of your screen there. alongside that freeway, there's a frontage road, you can't get on to it until gilman. if you're local and know the area, go for it as well. the rest of the maze, you need the approach t. bay bridge metering lights are on. you have the backup there, pretty standard. let's hope it's late lighter because of the crash. highway 84 for west 580 and 4 westbound through livermore, speeds coming down in towards 680. a new crash or actually a disabled vehicle right here as could cause an issue. so far nothing dramatic. we have more slowing farther west over here as you're approaching dublin. an earlier crash around san ramon road could have caused this problem. it sounds like everything is moving the the shoulder. again, that slowdown is an issue toward the castro valley area
6:22 am
and towards the san mateo bridge. foster city and the approach coming off the san mateo bridge, the volume builds for west 92. no major problems for this span or the south bay. we have slowing coming up guys. back to you. 6:22 right now. coming up, bracing for impact. we have the warning for tourists as a tropical storm is right now bearing down on the hawaiian islands. taking a live look outside, a cool start for the last week of july, especially taking a live look in the south bay this morning. we'll continue to keep tabs on your forecast, the traffic and all the day's news ahead. 6:22. ♪

a pretty nice sea breeze later today, especially if you're waking up with us in the extreme east bay, you're going to get such a break, at least for the next three days. a little hazy, but good to moderate air quality across the greater bay area. low this is morning are uniform because of all the cloud cover. typically we see about five degrees of separation. the clouds serve as a blanket trapping in the warmth from yesterday. we're starting out nice and mild. campbell at 58, 50 in cupertino. winds are going to play a bit of a factor. you open those windows. a nice breeze inside your home. give the ac a break. high pressure takes a hike. for us that allows an area of low pressure to come through. we'll see temperatures much cooler than average for this time of year to the tune of ten
6:49 am
degrees below average. 70s and 80s inland. 50s and 60s by the water. 83 on the way in livermore. concord, 78 degrees today. san jose, you cannot beat 75 degrees. the give and take comes like this. it's going to be cool at the coast. 58 degrees. you'll see warmer days just around the corner. again, the end of the week into the upcoming weekend, that heat returns and that means you'll be able to get back out to the beach without those overcast skies. 6:49. it's picking up, mike. what are you tracking? >> still tracking the big problems. first of all, this is the bay bridge toll plaza. like the movies say, it's quiet, too quiet. indeed it is. there's no backup because of problems for the eastshore freeway. very a stall reported on the upper deck. another issue as you head into san francisco. let's look at the eastshore freeway. this is approaching university avenue. the traffic flow seems like folks are moving over.
6:50 am
we have activity still on the shoulder, but it looks like maybe that lane is about to clear. you see the streaming lights. we have one lane still blocked we have the backup on the map. the lanes are not clear. below 20 miles per hour all the way out of richmond. the build is coming out of hercules from highway 4 through san pablo. you're below 20 all the way down toward university avenue. maybe in emeryville you're just fine. that clears up the maze and the approach to the bay bridge. no problems out of the caldecott or 580 or 880 through oakland as well. looking at 880 south. it's a distraction, but not a problem. building through hayward and down toward union city in fremont, that's a typical pattern for that portion of the east bay. northbound through san jose, we have a little slowing, a little capital right here.
6:51 am
680 and 880, a typical pattern here. a nice build for 87 as well. as the volume builds, nothing dramatic in the south bay, guys. back to you. it's 6:51 right now. we have continuing coverage of that crash, the asiana flight 214 at san francisco international airport. this morning four pilots being treated differently at sfo than u.s.-based pilots. they're being told to use gps when coming in for landing. bob redell is live in burlingame overlooking the runway where the asiana flight 214 crash landed. >> reporter: good morning, jon. at least one aviation expert considers this to be a highly unusual move, the fact that the faa is asking foreign carriers only to use gps when landing at 28 left and 28 right at sfo. that order in effect until the runway glide scopes are turned back in. that's equipment that helps pilots line up and land their aircraft it has been temporarily
6:52 am
shut down because of construction. pilots should be able to perform a viral approach, but the faa lost confidence in some foreign pilots' ability to land here visually, not only because of asiana flight 214 which crashed when the pilot came in too low and slow on runway 28 left, but also because there's been a highly unusual number of aborted landings by foreign carriers since that july 6th crash. just six days ago ava air out of taiwan had to abort because it was coming in too low. >> all training programs at all airlines are not created equal. what we do here in united states with our legacy and regional carriers, the standards the faa sets for the pilot training doesn't necessarily reflect everything that takes place in a foreign air carrier training program.
