5:01 am
got so far in the bay. no fog. it's just the clouds sitting above us that unfortunately for comment watchers has kind of gotten in the way. nothing getting in your way. if your commute, though, morgan hill, redwood city, san mateo, oakland and berkeley, all in the 30's right now. fremont, you're 35 dublin down to 32 degrees in santa rosa down to 30, along with fairfield at 30 degrees. so some of us are below freezing, but we're not quite as cold as we were yesterday. and no frost advisories on the map this morning. if you look at radar, you can definitely see that cloud cover pushing in. so that's what's kind of getting in the way you're better chances for seeing the stars further inland in the east bay solano, eastern contra costa and eastern alameda counties. definitely on the clear side, reyna, thank you for that. ok on this thursday, you're off to a good start. conditions traveling into the city still pretty light. 7 minutes mace to that fremont street exit. if you're taking the bay bridge, our san mateo bridge lot to one about 12 minutes traveling across towards the peninsula about the richmond,

sandra fell bridge. well, just at 7 minutes tolls to 101. there. and if you're taking the golden gate bridge, 37 to the tolls. it's going to take about 19 minutes. darya. james, back to you. thanks a lot. and on a very cold morning like it is today, a lot of drivers. do you know this kind of routine? they warm up the car rights, turn it on, get the heater blasting back in the house. whatever that's the problem. police say the thieves are now targeting more and more of these cars. >> they saw a spike in stolen vehicles as temperatures begin to drop and that's where kron four's will. tran is once again out in alameda county reminding us we've said it before. we'll you said it before. don't warm up the car and leave it unattended because this is what happens. >> yes, they have the numbers to prove it. james and area, the alameda police department. they said that since saturday, at least 12 people in their city, they've had their cars ripped off. so they stepped out. they were cold public. the freezing cold got their cars warmed up and then walked back inside. came outside, saw that the car was gone and then
5:03 am
they were hot instantly under the collar. yes, we are seeing freezing temperatures. so they are reminding people not just here, of course, in alameda, but all over the bay area. do not do that. yes, it is uncomfortable inside your car when it's cold. but, you know, it's worse trying to track down your car and all the problems that follow with that. so what they're doing is they're giving away free steering and paddle locks. if you go to the police department here in alameda and just go inside, ask for one and they will give you one if you can't do that. well, take a look at your screen. these are some tips that they want to pass along to you summer, like your mother reminding you of the obvious like lock your cars. don't put anything valuable inside if you have, you can't put it inside your house, at least hide inside your car. give yourself extra time to warm up your car in the morning while yes, sit inside. so lots of tips going
5:04 am
on, not just here, but all of the bay area. you know, i've been telling people for years because they do see a spike in car thefts when it gets cold and don't be a victim, just suffer in silence in your car with your coffee or if you're james fletcher, you have your butler. start your car back >> all right. thanks very for your tesla butler. all right. time now is 504. let's get to the breaking news because it was a big fire that tore strip mall in palo firefighters say 4 of businesses and all were damaged by the flames of kron four's michael thomas live with the story in palo alto. good morning, michael. >> hi, good morning, everyone. really a sad scene here today. we're at the corner of middlefield road and loma verde let still here live for a second. you know, officials say that they believe that started with the dry cleaning service. but take a look. lots of broken glass busted out windows. you can see some fire damage behind that. but, you
5:05 am
know, this also took place at 11 o'clock last night, will eventually get into some video of that scene. that's when fire officials arrived to flames coming from inside ages. quick clean, which is a dry cleaning service that's located between bills cafe with a b and on the opposite side is fills coffee with ap. now the fire eventually spread bursting through the roof of both ages, dry cleaning and the business next door, which is bills cafe again with a b calling multiple units to the scene and shutting down middlefield road completely. now all 4 businesses officials say did suffer damage. but the liquor store located at the end and feels coffee shop again with ap located at the opposite and suffered the least. now there were no injuries reported as to what caused it that's still under investigation. but back out here live again, this is bills cafe from the firefighter that i spoke with here. apparently this is a very breakfast spot here in this area. so they did seem to suffer a lot. and again, it has not been confirmed, but they do believe
5:06 am
that the fire started at the dry cleaning service, which is left of bill. so i know that there's a little bit of confusion because there's fills with the p, but it's fills the dry cleaning service, then bills, cafe and then the liquor store. so the 2 in the middle suffered the most. but as we get more information, we'll continue to keep you guys updated. but for now, let's send it back to you guys live in the studio. michael, thank you. >> time now is 506. and parents and teachers in the east. they're up in arms as school district is looking to eliminate 6th through 8th grades at bay farm school officials from alameda unified hosted a town hall to try to calm of the fears of some parents covers amanda hari. was there. >> the scene outside of bay farm school was calm wednesday afternoon. while on zoom, many parents fought to keep the middle school open. parents are upset that they're just finding out about the potential closure as a parent volunteer poured so much of my time. my heart and my soul into the school for the past

5:18 am

5:21 am
white house says the president won't negotiate over the debt limit. we're talking about programs that they want to take hostage. they should be able to do this without conditions. senate majority leader chuck schumer is critical of republicans for not sharing more details on what they want. we incurred these debts already. we should just pay them. >> republicans say no. well, what's the alternative? we haven't seen the treasury department warns if congress doesn't raise or suspend the debt limit by june, it could wreak havoc on the economy. there's only one way forward here and that is for congress to raise the debt ceiling. now, mccarthy and the president will continue these discussions as the speaker wants to reach an agreement long before the deadline. >> reporting live in washington. i'm basil, john. okay. we'll see what happens. and thank you, basil. it is 5.21. we'll take a break. coming up next on the kron. 4 morning news mass covid-19 vaccine and testing sites are going to be closed. >> in santa clara county soon, we'll tell you what prompted

5:26 am
pneumonia becoming the top cause of death house by any infectious for respiratory disease. according to cdc data, less than 10% of eligible children have gotten their updated booster shot and more than 90% of children under 5 are completely unvaccinated. researchers say there is uncertainty about exactly how much risk the virus will continue to pose, but the potential benefits of vaccination clearly outweigh any potential risks. so again, parents or encourage once again to get their kids vaccinated. it's 5.26. we'll take a break. but coming up next on the kron, 4 morning news re'tal prices are dropping in san francisco. economists explain why and how long it could last.
