5:03 am
cause of the fire was again neighbors saying they heard an explosion, saw light filling their room so certainly this was a sudden incident that started. we can also tell you that wind may very well have played a factor in this. again that is something we want to confirm with the sunnyvale fire department here as well. because we watched as the wind pushed the flames from the roof of that garage over to the roof to that neighboring duplex. so a lot of variables to take into effect. the good news at this point again sunnyvale fire beginning to scale down their response. it appears they have this fire well under control. we will monitor this situation and find out the answers to those questions in our next report coming up in a half hour. for now we are live in sunnyvale. time now 5:05. san francisco police investigationing a shooting, a stabbing, and attempted robbery at a donut shop. it happened here at the happy donuts about 3:00 this morning.

5:33 am
helped spread this fire. >> a rear garage behind the main residence was only ten feet from the next door neighbor residence. >> reporter: now still one of the outstanding question is how this fire began in the first place. sunnyvale fire department has told me they will bring an investigator out here who will go over with the homeowner who owns the garage where this fire started to try to find out what may have started this fire. certainly one of the areas that they will be looking at is whether any accelerants were stored in that garage like gasoline or oil or something like that. again so the cause of the fire still under investigation. but definitely the wind a contributing factor to spreading that from an unoccupied structure from a free standing garage to a neighboring duplex and leading to the evacuation of three families here. you will continue to monostore the situation here and try to
5:34 am
