we have breaking news to tell you about, an apartment fire in contra costa county. "today in the bay's" bob redell just got to that scene in antioch and bob, we can see behind you how that fire tajjed that damaged that home. how is it going now? >> reporter: the fire is out, started around 3:30 on the 600 block of west 14th. the origin of the fire was fully involved, fortunately the person who lives there, a man, was not inside and they have not been able to locate him as of yet. they tried to call him but he was not inside and they know he's not inside right now, that he wasn't home at the time or at least they don't believe he was. so this unit caught fire and it spread to two other units next door. one of those units suffered some water damage and the other unit smoke damage. there's five units in total. the other two units, number four and five, they are fine. they're not, they didn't have any damage but the people in the two corner units, a man in the
5:06 am
one and the woman in the other, they are not going to be able to live here so they are the ones that are displaced, trying to get the power back on for the other units so those people could go inside. i was speaking with the contra costa county fire protection district and have them do you have any idea what the cause is? they have an investigator on scene and this is happening at 3:30 in the morning. the fire department had it out within 20 minutes. everyone got out okay, no injuries, just unfortunately you have two people whose units right now, one is destroyed, the other is too damaged to be living there. reporting live in antioch, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> certainly not the way anyone wants to start their morning especially with it being this cold outside. 5:56. expect picket lines this week at kaiser permanente centers up and down the state. thousands of mental health workers are expected to go on a five-day strike starting today. psychologists, therapists and psychiatric nurses did not reach a new contract with kaiser, which has a backlog of mental health patients, some have had
5:07 am
to wait two months for appointments. kaiser says it's working to address the concerns but a strike only hurts patients. later this morning, supportive housing leaders break ground on a new south bay development promising nearly 150 new units including many to house the homeless. the development is going up on corvin drive in santa clara, one block east of lawrence expressway, includes 08 units for people who were previously homeless, the other units for low income renters, expected to open in the fall of 20 1. in an effort to boost housing options in contra costa county, walnut creek and pleasant hill this year, both debating easing rules for so-called granny units, changes include loosening requirements for parking. owners living on site and easing size limitations. the changes would follow similar recent steps taken in cities like san jose. if councilmembers approve the emergency changes, each may take effect immediately. after two delays, crab season is finally in full swing.
5:08 am
it got under way yesterday. this is after it was supposed to start on november 15th. the delays were due to concerns of whales getting tangled in fishing lines. berkeley fishermen say they made an 11,000 pound haul yesterday from a pod new to the area. they say that's about an average but the crab is much bigger this year, which is happy news for san francisco restaurants. >> it's important because it's better to have fresh local crab, fresh local crab from here, from the bay, and people have better prices. >> that is good. that is good. >> so some good news here. experts say due to the fresh catches, you can expect crab prices to go down. >> warm up the butter. live look at interstate 80 near donner summit. hardly anyone out there on the roads but they have heading up with all the recent snow, really

5:10 am
pattern, we've seen over the last month getting closer to about 5:10, 5:15 and right on schedule there. the approaches look great. a crash marker right here, there was a crash reported near the toll plaza, i don't see any problem for the lane flow. sounds like everybody got off to the shoulder there, but still there may be some flashing lights and a distraction, down to the south bay, and on either side of the bay a smooth drive, crossing the bay getting more crowded as westbound is your commute, no problems getting to palo alto. i'll check on the road crew closer to marsh. back to you. >> thanks, mike. 5:10. discontinuing excursions. ahead on "today in the bay," the cruise line making a major revelation following a deadly volcano eruption on a new zealand island. and the changes google is making to its mapping service amid helping you find charging stations. plus trending this morning, calling all coffee lovers, how you can get paid to live in a castle and drink caffeine.

half moon bay. we have some mid-30s in the north bay, and it will drop a few more degrees around sunshine -- sunrise, so i wouldn't be surprised to see dropping down to freezing this morning, as we watch out for some patchy frost. in livermore it's 37 degrees, and 38 in san martin, and in san jose 40 degrees, as you head out the door. if you're about to step out in oakland, maybe headed to the fruitvale b.a.r.t. station you need a heavier coat as our temperatures dip down to about 42 degrees, and then we'll see it gradually warming up today but at least we have the sunshine working in our favor, and it's going to be a nice day, but most of these temperatures about where we should be for this time of year, reaching into the mid to upper 50s and we're also seeing some clear skies for today. tomorrow the clouds start to move in, as this storm system approaches, but it does look fairly weak and as it moves in, early on wednesday, we'll bring in our next round of wet weather. as we take it hour by hour, this
5:21 am
is how it shapes up for us. once again all clear today. tomorrow we see some more clouds but it does stay dry and going into early wednesday morning, we'll start to see some of the rain coming out of those clouds, and we'll start out early wednesday with some waves of rain moving in. we have a possibility of getting anywhere from about a quarter to half inch of rain, some of the higher amounts will be in san francisco and along the coastline. going into the rest of the week we'll see a couple more waves of rain, the first one moving in on wednesday, we're dry on thursday. friday we're also looking fairly dry but late friday night into saturday we'll see our next storm system coming in, just in time for the big 49ers game here at home on saturday. we'll be watching out for the rain chances. mike, you were checking the lightings, light crossing the bay. >> both the lighting and the lights. the lighting is fine. the lights are moving smoothly. the incline it's looking better than it did a few minutes ago because the backup is now the lights at the toll plaza. the metering lights are turned on right at your expected time

although there's a lighter flow of traffic as we talk about toward the end of the year, sliding toward a lighter commute over the next couple of weeks after that, a smooth drive, that crash never materialized as a problem. we'll remove that from the last report. we do have a crash reported on the north side, coming down toward the golden gate bridge, no slowing on the sensors there as well but just a shout out to marin county, we're going to keep checking on that around the sausalito area. a smooth drive westbound across the san mateo bridge picking up a little volume. dumbarton bridge no problems, and if you're driving from castro valley over to san mateo right now, you are just about a half an hour, starting at 6:00 the travel times start to creep up and by 7:00, you've doubled that travel time to over an hour, for that same stretch. so just keep that in mind. right now your timing is great and you can watch a few more reports and stick with us. south bay, peninsula, no major deal. slowing on 280, i think there's a road crew there. i'll double check. we don't want to take anything for granted. starbucks under fire.
