expressway. this includes the typical businesses that you see in this part of town. 7/11 a liquor store, gay and laundromat and massage parlor and dentist office et cetera. 10:00 last night when san jose police officers were conducting a follow-up investigation to a previous crime. the officers caught up with the male suspect. investigators say the man then suddenly reached for a handgun. the officers then drew their weapons and fired a couple of shots. the suspect was hit and then was pronounced dead at the scene. no officers were injured and sjpd cordoned off a very wide area while they cult their investigation. this is the second officer- involved shooting this month. where the suspect was shot dead. the previous one happened about one week ago. we are waiting for a spokesperson to come out to give us more information so keep it tuned right here throughout the broadcast, kiet do, kpix 5. more extreme heat and unhealthy air in the bay area
today. temperatures yesterday reached triple digits inland and 90 degrees in san francisco. breaking a 65-year-old record. but the hot weather has definitely not been accompanied by crystal clear skies. that's because high pressure has been trapping pollution and driving smoke from wildfires into the bay area. >> i just know that the smell more than anything and i know it's particulate matter, so i'm -- aware cognizant that it's not good for your lungs. >> all right so the smoky skies prompted the bay area air quality management district yesterday to declare a spare the air day. yesterday's record temperatures includes 97 degrees in san jose and 92 oakland and similar conditions are in today's forecast. hot all over california and the hot weather is helping fuel wildfires in southern california as well. this fire in the angeles national forest has burned about 500 acres. six structures near koa stan stock. containment remains at 0%. the cause still under investigation there. there are two other significant
wildfires burning in l. a. county. one near glendora, the other near montibello area. the sate of washington is -- state of washington is calling on the national guard for help with wildfires, central part of the state has been dealing with fires all summer including this one that's burned about 100 buildings near chelan. >> this whole ridge was on fire. this -- that whole hillside there. this whole hillside was on fire last night. it was nuts. >> and in oregon, crews are battling several out of control wildfires. one has burned more than 52,000 acres near the warm springs indian reservation and we have more coverage of the california wildfires check it out at the we believe site, cbs -- website. cbssf.com. it's right below the bay area news section there. >> it's like fire after fire after fire. >> you can see all the smoke. i was up at tahoe driving down and past vacaville, just completely hazy. >> made for a good sunset but that's about it.
everything else not so good. we are start out with weather yes? because i see her waiting patiently over there. >> i'm always waiting patiently. >> oakland 62 and livermore 67 right now. and in san jose, 67-degree as well. warm it's going to be -- look how warm it's going to be today. 93 in santa rosa the city falls all the bay down to 75. after its record-shattering high of 90 yesterday. 87 in redwood city and 87 at mountain view. it's a step in the right direction and it sets a phone for the week, cooling it down as we head into midweek but still plenty hot today. liza? we're going to start off with the morning's commute in san leandro. southbound 880 just before davis getting reports of a new accident blocking the right lane. also a big rig accident in the vallejo area, eastbound 37 near mare island. a couple of things already to watch out for. certainly if you are a san jose driver, just keep in mind we have that police action this morning. northbound center road shut
down indefinitely between capital expressway and south side. kiet do is out there and hear from him in a few minutes. no delays at the toll plaza at the bay bridge. on aened mo. thanks. -- a monday. thanks. >> crash left three people dead in contra costa county. and kpix 5's cate cauguiran is at the scene in el sobrante to tell us what happened. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well we know that speed was a factor in one of these -- in this accident. but we don't know how fast that driver was going. but i can show you here that at one point roads were blocked. what you see now is just the aftermath. some road flares here, they are reopened now but let's go to viewer video that we have. you can take a look, just pretty dramatic from what we see right now. what you're looking at there is a car completely covered in flames. firefighters there on stands bi. what we do know about this accident it happened around 10:00 last night on san pablo dam road. the chp says a red camaro
sideswiped a honda civic. the driver of the civic managed to pull over safely. but the camaro continued down the road hit a tree and then caught fire. the camaro's driver was able to escape. >> the camaro at that point burst into flames. and three people inside the car perished. either the result of the collision or the post-collision fire. >> reporter: now, there's more of that viewer video. so far investigators say it appears that alcohol may have been a factor in addition to speed. at this point, we don't know the identities of those people killed in the accident but again like we said, those in the civic were able to get out okay. reporting live in el sobrante, cate cauguiran, kpix 5. thank you. searchers in indonesia have spotted the wreckage of a passenger plane. carrying 54 people. but it could take a while for crews to get to a very hard to reach location. residents of a nearby village told local police they saw the plane flying low before it

republicans in the polls but that won't keep him from fulfilling his civic duty. trump is considerated to -- expected to report for jury duty today in new york. last week a trump spokesperson confirmed the real estate mogul will show up to a manhattan courtroom if he fails to appear, trump could face a $250 fine. 5 4:00 07 on a monday. cameraer -- 5:07 on a monday, cameras were rolling. watch as the robber gets more than he bargained for coming up. >> plus he survived a shark attack last month. why the surfer says he's ready to jump back into the water. >> all right going to be warm again today in the bay area. with numbers approaching 100 degrees inland. but there's better news for later in the week. we'll have it better news in traffic liza? >> not -- no not so much. we have brand new accidents now in the vallejo area and another one in san leandro. the vallejo accident is on highway 37 involving a big rig in the eastbound direction. we'll have details on this also information on street closures information on street closures in san jose with kcbs traffic. ,

we'll have the complete forecast coming up in what will seem like milliseconds but first, it's time to talk about southern california heat. yes indeed. we aren't the only ones dealing with the heat. southern california's manhattan beach was the place to be this weekend as hundreds tried to beat the 100-degree temperatures there as well not only was the beach packed, but the professional volleyball tournament nearby also drew a pretty big crowd too. >> hot, hot, hot. 105 degrees in the morning. >> you have the sun. you have the sand. >> and the fun. business owners near the beach also coming out on top this weekend as people packed their stores and restaurants all trying to stay cool and have a little fun. a sky diver is dead after colliding with another jumper at the chicago air and water show. video shows the parachutist clipping a building after saturday's midair collision. one of them landed on lake shore drive and was rushed to the hospital where he died yesterday. >> man was coming in really low. and feared to be almost
motionless or lifeless. >> the victim is identified as 32-year-old sergeant first class corey hood a member of the army's golden knights' par suit team. the other parachutist landed on a beach and suffered a broken leg, he's been released from the hospital. the moment when explosions happened in china in a port city. the bright flash occurred at least part of it overlooking the blast site. so far 114 people are dead from last wednesday's explosions and 7 # still missing. -- 70 still missing. today about 100 people held a protest to demand compensation from the chinese government. a would-be robber got much more than he bargained for when he entered a pennsylvania convenience store. with a machete. surveillance video shows the bizarre twist. when the store clerk confronted the man with a massive sword of his own. the suspect realized his machete was no match so he turned around and he ran away. wow. the clerk also had a gun and
says he would have used it but the market's owner doesn't want to promote violence. >> you don't need to do that. you are a young guy, well -- strong, healthy. go and find job. this is not the way. this is the way that you going to end up killed or in jail. >> wow. well, the owners of perry market are serious about security if you have not noticed with 16 cameras placed strategically in and around the building. >> samurai. wow. talk about a bad day. a big rig runs into a big problem. >> oh. >> yeah. well, there we go. you can hear the driver recording this trying to get the truck driver's attention. the driver apparently didn't realize his trailer was up taking out the signs and damaging his truck at the same time. not clear if anyone ended up injured in the accident. it is clear though they will need a new sign there though. >> apparently nothing like that happening out in the roads over here in the bay area right
liza? no. and let's hope it stays that way. that's kind of scary video there. we're going to talk about this morning's commute. your monday morning drive approaching the san leandro area is going to be a little slow. we have an accident nothing that dramatic show. southbound 880 before davis accident blocking the right hand lane. traffic throe for a -- slow for a quarter mile approaching the scene. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it is early monday morning light and enjoy it while it lasts, westbound traffic still looking good bound for san francisco leaving oakland. no big delays there. the rest of the commute if you plan on making that 580 drive leaving the altamont pass, there are delays this morning from the 205 interchange approaching vasco. it does break loose once you pass that exit in the livermore area. mass transit wise in good shape of course it's a spare the air day today. it would be a good idea if you can to take mass transit. right now no delays for the b.a.r.t. system. ferries the commuter express or caltrain. the rest of drive, there's a
closure now because of this morning's police action in silicon valley. northbound center street is shut down between capital expressway and south side drive. so expect a brief delay getting through there and south bay freeways still in good shape no accidents for 101, 280 or 680. and heading for the north bay eastbound 37 at mare island, there's a big rig accident in the clearing stages. first reports tell us that the big rig may have overturned at least one lane of traffic is shut down. this is in the countercommute direction eastbound 37 approaching mare island in vallejo. that's a look at your kcbs traffic. now to brian. all right, nicely done lee s as we're starting off with as she pointed out a spare the air day today with high pressure still kind of parked over the west coast that's cooking all the ozone that we generate in the afternoon. and as a result, unhealthful levels of pollutants in the north and east bay and also in santa clara county for today. as for the rest the numbers right now as we look at san francisco estorilest
skyscraper. which frank mallicoat will now tell us what that skyscraper is. >> would that be the pyramid? >> they would indeed. >> tank america. >> how tall is that? >> i don't know. you know the number that occurs to me is 722 feet. which is unreliable source. 67 -- look it up for me will you? 61 ray long the coast this morning and nice and mild. the bay will be in the low 60s and inland will be in the mid- to upper 60s to start the day with. high pressure and hot over the desert southwest. there's a fire burning in northern california. far northern california. by trinity county. that over the weekend led to this gentle transport of the smoke from northern california down the central valley and an offshore flow brought it right heavier to bay area. smoke and haze should abate somewhat today because we establish a little sea breeze. it will be nice and mild and warm temperatures continue inland however. we get the break along the shore because of this. the return of fog and low clouds to the shoreline. will freeze this at 7:00 tonight. so that you can see the low clouds have packed back in. that's relief for the shoreline.

the suspect was hit and was pronounced dead at the scene. no officers were injured. sjpd has a very wide area cordoned off still while they finish up their investigation. center road now shut downgoing northbound from capitol expressway to south side drive. this is the second officer- involved shooting this month where the suspect was shot dead. the previous one happened one week ago. we're live in east san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. thanks. today we can expect extreme heat and some unhealthy air to continue around the bay area temperatures yesterday reaching triple digits inland and 90 degrees in san francisco. that broke a 65-year-old record. but the hot weather has definitely not been accompanied by crystal clear skies. that's because of high pressure has been trapping pollution and driving smoke from some of the wildfires right into the bay area. >> i'm just noticing the smell more than anything. and i know it's particulate matter and i'm aware and cognizant it's not good for your lungs. >> far tick hat matter.
the skies prompted the bay area air quality management district yesterday to declare a spare the air day. yesterday's record temperatures included 97 degrees in san jose. oakland checked in at 92 and as i mentioned san francisco a record 90. similar conditions today in the bay area. but kind of a cooldown. particulate matter sounds so much better than -- you know the other stuff you could be calling it. >> that's true. [ laughter ] >> a little bit more of that today that's why we have a spare the air day posted for the second day in a row actually. that does it for the first time on sunday. today we start out with san francisco at 61 degrees. it's fairly balmy in the bay area. as we start out on your monday morning. won't be that way by the time we finish oh my gosh look at 580. we will have liza batallones presiding over the traffic in just a moment. smoky and hot inland today and cooler by the shoreline and then near normal by midweek. today though will be plenty hot at fairfield 100 degrees. 100 at livermore and 86 at vallejo. in san francisco, as you head
back to school, 75 degrees. pretty nice day for it. 93 degrees up in santa rosa and 87 at redwood city. relief is on the way. not only in the form of fog and low clouds, but also in the form of liza with a z.. liza with a z.. that's right you know and those who have asthma know all about the matter as asthma has been really acting up the last few days. 880 is going to be a slow one for you we've got that accident involving a couple of vehicles. one of them overturned with a multiple lanes shut down. southbound 880 just before davis. so traffic is slow for about a half mile approaching the accident scene. you can use san leandro street or 580 as your alternatives. we have better news though for valet he. eastbound 37 at mare island that big rig accident just being rushed off to the shoulder. all lanes are open and traffic is fine now in both directions of 37. but just keep in mind in san jose, we heard from kiet do who's there over at the police action which has shut down
northbound center street. it is closed now between capitol expressway and south side drive. that's a look at the kcbs traffic. guys. three people are dead after a fiery car accident in contra costa county. kpix 5's cate cauguiran is at the scene in elsa bonn toy that tell us -- el sobrante to tell us what happened. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, well it's the certainly a sad morning forthose who lost led ones in -- loved ones in this crash. we can take a look, this is all that's left. the crash shut down this road. it's san pablo dam road. but now all that -- you see the flares. we do have some video to show you. it may be graphic. inside this car, where four people and only one was able to make it out alive. now that car was a red camaro going the opposite direction of a honda civic. chp says the camaro crossed over the center line sideswiping the honda. the honda was able to pull over. but the camaro did not and he hit a tree before catching on fire.
>> the camaro at that point burst into flames. and three people inside the car perished is either the result of the collision or the post- collision fire. >> reporter: this happened just before 10:00 last night near the intersection of san pablo dam road and canyon oak. chp says in addition to speed, alcohol was also a factor. we do want to make note that the road that you're looking at is a heavily traveled commute between richmond and o reason da. certain -- orinda. certainly it will be good for the morning commute. we know that the driver is recovering this morning at a nearby hospital. chp has not yes leased the name -- yet released the names of the other three victims. reporting live, cate cauguiran, kpix 5. thank you. and we expect to learn more today about a fatal police involved shooting in sunnyvale on saturday police responded to report of suspicious activity at a motel six and when they approached, two men started running and at some point there
