us what was happening during the morning. we're told that because firefighters wanted to focus on saving people inside, that force chose to move their forces away from initially getting the fire under control. >> we had tremendous difficulty making headway, making entrance to the building because the large volume of fire. of the victims that we pulled out, one person is critical. the rest are moderate to severe injuries, but one is critical, an elderly lady. >> at this time, firefighters tell us it's too early to tell what the cause was, but they ee first floor and s building. kpix 5. >> all right, thank you for that update. sf unified tweeted these two teachers from nearby rosa parks school ran into the building and didn't even think of themselves. they just helped rescue people, one after the other. and the district is already on social media hailing them as heroes. a lot of smoke visible across

look at the empty shelves. about 43% less formula on store shelves right now, it was 31% last month. so supplier abbott getting a lot of questions at their plant, they say they had to shut down because of concerns about tainting formula, and they give some assurance they could start production soon again, but it could take up to two months for that supply to make it back onto store shelves. meanwhile, biden administration officials say they're going to cut some packaging regulations to help get new products on shelves faster where you live. they're also calling for crackdowns on price gouges and they're working on importing more formula from overseas. still, though, a lot of critics say the president reacted too slow. house oversight committee has launched an investigation looking into supply issues and pricing. >> beta breakers is this sunday. it's been a tradition in san francisco for more than 100 years. >> pretty cool, right? one man in the east bay started running in the 1980s, and he did that faithfully until a parkinson's diagnose made him
hang up his shoes. now, amanda shows you that his son is making sure he crosses the finish line just one more time. >> we're rolling. >> the euphoria of a good long run is a distant memory to 78-year-old dan cochran. >> good to get out and clear out the mind. >> dan's dedication to running kicked into high gear in the '70s. and running in the beta breakers event became a yearly tradition. >> the camaraderie. the feeling you get from just being in an effort with bigger people. >> but 20 years ago, dan was diagnosed with parkinson's disease, putting his favorite pastime on the shelf. >> the doctor told me it was a short period of time or a long period of time, but i'll be in a wheelchair eventually. i decided i didn't just want to take it laying down. >> while still young at heart with a strict diet and routine exercise, dan has stayed out of that wheelchair. >> we're 20 years into it. i'm still doing okay. >> he has been running his own
race, beating the odds regardless of his diagnosis. >> that's a quote of his own that he wears proudly on his shirt. >> and that was reaction to people's reaction to me. they look at me like i'm dying or something. i see the wheelchair, the push cart. and they get a terrible look on their face. i say, don't rry. it's parkinson's. >> strong enough to play ball with his son, hitting the pavement for a distance run is no longer an option. >> do you miss that? >> i miss it, yeah. just too hard on my back. >> so his son robert figured out a way to get his dad to cross the bay to breakers finish line one more time. >> i want dad to know there's still hope. >> every step of the way on sunday, robert will be there with his dad as he makes it through the seven-mile course across the city. with some help. >> but all of a sudden the chair

>> yeah, you know, you wouldn't, but as summer nears, blood donations are critically iman maintain that stable blood supply. we see the drop because folks, you know, children are being let out of school, families are setting off on vacation. kind of taking more time for themselves outside of their normal routine, so we typically see a decline in donors, often leading to a seasonal blood shortage which is exactly why we're so happy to be here today to talk about the reason and encourage folks to make an appointment to donate. >> one other incentive may be for people that with your kids in your proximity, they're out of school, this might be a great time to talk about the importance of donation and involve them in what that means to you as an adult who can donate blood. what else is the red cross doing to try to get more donors involved? >> we have a couple of thank yous we have available. we have one very exciting one that's available from now until the 19th of may. and so the red cross has partnered with suburban propane and we're encouraging the public to commit to this simple but powerful act of donating blood,
platelets or plasma. if you donate before the 19th of may, you'll be entered to win a new travel trailer camper that sleeps eight. thank you can find more information on that at redcross.org/camper. you also receive a $10 e-gift card. >> and in the next 20 or 30 seconds, let's get to the why of it. it would be fun to win something as part of being a blood donor, but tell us about the people who receive the blood, what their needs are, what their personal plea would be today. >> you know, the need for blood is constant, and the need never takes a break. every two seconds, someone in the u.s. needs blood, and there is no substitution for blood. it cannot be manufactured. it can't be stockpiled. and volunteers that are needed for folks that are battling sickle cell disease, car accident victims, those going through cancer treatments, parents experiencing difficult
child births, things of that nature. really we're asking folks to download the red cross blood donor app. >> to our viewers, you got your message across. we apologize for a little glitch in the stream there over the internet, but your message got across. we appreciate it. thank you so much. our best to all of you and your peers at the red cross. >> we have been talking about this warmup for a few days and now we're starting to feel it. >> temperatures returning to normal today, even slightly above normal for parts of the bay area. going to be kind of a brief warm spell tomorrow. in fact, very brief. one day in this warm spell. the temperatures peak tomorrow and then the big picture weather pattern is going to shift around. the area of high pressure is going to shift to the southeast and another storm system sweeps to the pacific northwest, missing up. it's going to send some passing clouds, but a stronger onshore breeze so the lack of high pressure, the stronger onshore breeze means temperatures will start backing down on sunday, a trend that continues into monday. another trend that's going to continue, the clouds we see overhead on sunday are not going
to squeeze out any precipitation. there's no rain in the forecast through all of next week. we had that 10% to 20% chance maybe in the forecast for the north bay on ay. that's now gone away. it looks like the next storm system is on a path where its moisture is going to completely avoid the bay area. we should see some improvement to the pollen count with that system sweeping in sunday. a day in the medium high category tomorrow and then down to the medium scatgory for sunday, monday, and tuesday. same top three offenders, oak, mulberry, and grass pollen. there is the fog hanging out along and just off the coast. temperatures, an even mix of 66, 70s, and 80s. 70s for san jose and santa rosa, and 80 in livermore and concord. the onshore breeze is with us, but it took longer to kick in, which is why temperatures in the city managed to warm up to the 60s and close to 70 degrees in oakland. similar temperature at the coliseum as the a's take on on the anaheim angelsr l
angels of anaheim of california of the united states of north america. a few clouds out there. it is going to be breezy. the wind is noticeable across the bay area, again, it took longer for the onshore breeze to kick in and start to drop temperatures back. a similar pattern tomorrow. the onshore breeze will take longer to kick in so temperatures have more of a chance to warm up. we're going to start off with locally dense fog. not just in the coast and bay, but spilling into the inland valleys by tomorrow morning. that backs up to the coast by noon and then the temperatures are going to warm up. we'll start out with temperatures in the 40s for some of the cool temperatures, but mostly low to mid 50s. high temperatures tomorrow only reach the high 60s along the coast. within a degree of two of 80 around the bay. 85 in san jose. mid to upper 80s for the tri-valley and other inland parts of the east bay. even up to 92 in fairfield and 92 in brentwood. just short of 70 in san
francisco, but low to mid 70s for oakland and the east bay and mostly 80s inland. in the north bay, mid 60s along the coast and the warmest spots farther north in sonoma and napa counties should briefly touch 90 degrees. temperatures back down on sunday to about where we are today. near average temperatures monday and tuesday and wednesday, minor ups and downs but more of a the ful fledged roller coaster. they will affect our temperatures dropping us back to slightly below average by thursday and frida exactly expecting her. where queen elizabeth made a surprise appearance after being out of the public eye for a while. >> then on our streaming service, san jose mayor sam liccardo sits down to talk about the city's ban on so-called ghost guns and the release of violent repeat offenders. that's coming up, and a reminder you can always watch our stream whenever, wherever. just find out how on pluto tv,
