6:04 am
>> i see that the roof is david in a little bit, but it seems like most of the damage happened here at the marina mart, so we're praying to god that, you know, the building is at least salvageable at this point. >> reporter: do you have fire insurance? >> yes, we do, thank god. >> reporter: three other businesses in this strip mall were shared, i just spoke with the owner at one of hose businesses we will share that with you in our next live shot. for now firefighters have been here for three that i have hours, there has been no determination as of yet as to what caused this fire to break out. marina and doolittle remain closed and we will probably stay closed as i he thinks ped million later this morning. now, there was an apartment complex also mere this in the rear of this strip mall. it was evacuated. we are now -- we have now been told that all but four of the occupants of those units are being allowed back in.
6:05 am

6:10 am
microclimates coming up in a few minutes. let's check in with anthony for traffic. we had that fatal accident on 101 in san jose right at tully road. it seems as though crews have got the upper hand on that and are starting to clear the highway, one lane is starting to get through and we will see all southbound lanes continue to open. on the northbound side it's starting to slow but that's a typical slowing that we see. as we move up the east bay you will notice a little bit of activity headed over towards dublin, pleasanton, this is 580. cars are moving a little bit slower than they usually do just because of an accident right at 680 on the shoulder. that has been moved over to the side, but again, people like to take a look. as we move over towards the bay bridge toll plaza those metering lights have been on since about 5:40 this morning so the backup is extensive. it could be worse on a monday morning, not all bad. only really trouble spot is in san jose is. we will continue to washing that
6:11 am
and you can also follow up on twitter, we have updates through the morning. >> take a little longer to get ready and you should be okay. >> it's 101 southbound so usually away from the flow of the main traffic. 6:11. still ahead, big changes coming to one of the world's most popular stores. why you may notice something a little different the next time you step foot into target. >> a new way to handle your cell phone contracts as well. we will take a look coming up.
6:12 am
6:13 am
and more breaking news this morning. this time in oakland where two homes were torched this morning. this new video shows firefighters battling these
6:14 am
ferocious flames during a fire off of 72nd avenue. we are told that the fire is not under control and that crews are frantically working to make sure that it does not spread to other homes. so far, though, there are no injuries. we will bring you updates as we get them. 6:14. within four years santa clara county may have itself a brand-new jail. the mercury news reporting that supervisors tomorrow will plan on discussing limb plans to replace the outdated main jail south. that wing dates all the way back to the 1950s. the more modern main jail mortgage right next door opened in the late 1980s. county leaders are putting together a proposal to get the state to pay for about a third of the estimated $240 million price tag. a new wing could come online by late 2019. a troubling trend in many bay area school districts, an unusual shortage of teachers as the school year approaches very fast. the mercury thus reports san jose unified last week was still about a dozen teachers short of
6:15 am
full staffing. classes start on wednesday, that's the day after tomorrow. one problem a shrinking pool of candidates, also more openings across the state. the merk reports substitute teachers in some districts are also in extremely short supply. in addition to san jose unified in wednesday the alum rock district begins on august 26th, san francisco unified august 17th, oakland unified kicks off two weeks from today and palo alto k through 8 starts next tuesday. are you worried about making commitments? verizon is dropping the entire idea of phone contracts, but with it cheap upgrades. >> they were really never cheap once you did all of the math, scott. >> if you did all of the matt, where he, a lot of people didn't. you were paying one way or the other. the city calls it subsidized phones, you might pay $100 for a new iphone then pay the extra amount each month to make up the difference.
6:16 am
verizon is joining sprint by dropping this idea. instead you will buy your phone full price but you are not stuck with a cell phone company for years. if you are in a contract right now that doesn't change until the contract expires, but this could can very well have a serious effect on the iphone industry because people often upgrade their phones just because they can. that leaves phone makers like apple to make incremental upgrades each year so you're getting something new, making it seem like a big deal to upgrade from iphone 4 to 5 or 6 or what have you. now, it's possible that people will have to pay full price all at once, they would be less enthusiast stick. that said if you are tired of your iphone 6 which after all is, what, like 11 months old, apple will likely announce the iphone 6s on september 9th. looking ahead to the week we are waiting on a new reo from twitter. the old ceo will likely step down from the company's board of directors. twitter founder jack dorsey filling in as temporary ceo.
6:17 am
one of the biggest investors pushing that dorsey should take that position permanently. jack dorsey is right now the ceo of two companies, twitter and square. square is set to go public, sell its stock for the first time in an ipo, this would make investors very uneasy if the ipo they were investing in were headed by a guy who may or may not stick around as ceo so dors dwree needs to declarevestors k happen in the future. i think he is going to go to square. i think that's the only option that realistically exists. >> or you can just cologne jack dorsey. >> that might be the next cool silicon valley thing. a major u.s. retailer wants to put an end to gender labels. target plans to stop putting up signage in some departments suggesting that certain items are just for girls because they're pink or just for boys because they are blue.
6:18 am
also on the way out the pink, blue, yellow, green paper tauz sometimes on the store shelves of the store. kari, i know you have seen that. bedding will only say now that it is for kids. the changes will begin over the next few months, clothing, though, will still be divided among boys and girls. 6:18. we do see some purples in our skies from time to time during the sunrise, let's get a check outside right now. right now we see a bunch of haze and the bay bridge, be a bit of a cloudy start. >> here is meteorologist kari hall. will we see some clearing today? >> some clearing except for in san francisco where you will see the clouds hanging around all day. doesn't it make for awesome pictures, though? we will have highs today reaching into the 60s in the city, as we look now at san jose we see the clouds to start out the morning that will be out of here by midmorning. get ready for a sunny afternoon. and now that seven-day forecast is coming up at the bottom of the screen.
6:19 am
check out those temperatures today as you head out this is what you need to know as we get a view, a live look at the golden gate bridge. cloudy and cool temperatures starting out the day, but it does become mostly sunny if in many spots, especially inland, with slightly cooler temperatures than yesterday and it will be breezy and clear this evening with sunset at 8:05 in the south bay. livermore is now at 62 degrees, as well as 60 in hayward and san francisco, sanity rosa is though at a nice cool 54 degrees. this is what i was talking about, the low clouds. you see the dark shades of gray ear and we are at 10:00 in the morning, we still see those clouds moving across parts of the bay and it doesn't really clear in san francisco, while the rest of the bay area away from the coast sees a lot of sunshine today and then the clouds move back in later on tonight and we will also start tomorrow morning with more of the aim, the clouds that will clear out as we go into the afternoon. so today in los gatos a high of
6:20 am
85 degrees, redwood city 79 degrees, pigs district at 67 degrees. in the north bay it will be cloudy to start with some sunshine this afternoon, sanity rosa reaching 83, walnut creek 89 degrees and tanville a high of 87 degrees. through the rest of the week we start a slow warming trend but it stays nice and comfortable for the next few days. let's check in for traffic. things are starting to ease up a little bit. a little more comfort on this drive as we take you into san jose. this is 101 northbound we have been telling you all morning long, but southbound lanes have been closed at tully. they are beginning to reopen that, crews opened up one lane a few minutes ago and expected to open up all lanes just in a matter of moments. as we switch over to the maps and show you what i'm talking about there you can see that's where the accident was about 3:00 this morning and now they are starting to reopen the lanes. northbound lanes moving without a problem, just a typical slowing coming through santa clara.
6:21 am
>> we had an accident at 580 near the 680 interchange but really not affecting traffic all that much and also some slowing getting on to the san mateo bridge. we will take you outside and show you with a it looks like there. typical build, nothing unusual. as you head over the bridge you have those low clouds a beautiful sunrise coming up, but as you head over the bridge from the peninsula no problems, same deal headed into the foster city. as we ache you to the bay bridge approach, the metering lights have been on now and you can see the backup pretty extent sieve is. we don't have our friend parker the spider this morning, but we will watch out for him. back to you guys. >> you to have some parking lot behind you on the bay bridge. the time is now 6:21. still ahead on "today in the bay," an inflatable whale, a massive crane and tv star steve o., the bizarre story coming up next.
