into the air, and just about 2 40 this afternoon they were able to start getting control of it. and just a short time ago they were able to stop it out again. now we understand here that a neighbor in fact, we have video of a neighborhood grabbed a garden hose and started trying to put out the flames around the time that it broke out, and the neighbor gets pretty close to trying to help out with that. but unfortunately for one of the people that were inside that did not help that person. as we said just a moment ago passed away. we still don't know the identity of the second person who remains hospitalized tonight. right now, though, we are told that the fire did not spread to the unit on either side. there were firewalls built in on both sides all the way up to the addict, so it's likely the fire marshal tells me that the two people who live on opposite sides will be able to go into their unit. at some point this evening, but right now the investigation is just beginning as to how this fire started. we'll keep an eye on things and let you know what we learned back to you. hey andre. i know it's early in all of this, but obviously this fire started in the middle of the
afternoon. is there a sense at all from the authorities about why these two men were not able to get out of the fire before they were overcome by the smoke and flames right now. yeah i asked about that right now. they just they have no clue right now. the focus of the. of this was just to get the flames out. and they're just starting pretty much knowing nothing about what happened here, uh, starting from the ground up to learn exactly why those men were unable to get out of the unit in the first place, whether they we're unconscious. just not known just yet. what happened? all right. we hope to learn more later, andre, senior live force in brentwood. thank you, andre. will a man posing as a spiritual healer in san jose is now facing charges of raping a child 42 year old jorge luis, never ready of san jose was arrested on several counts of felony sex crimes. including rape by force with a child under the age of 1. police say the crimes happened from october of last year until august of this year. anyone with information about this case or other potential cases is asked to call san jose police. we're

we don't know if that's the plan at this point, in all honesty, but we do have about 200 protesters here gathering on the san francisco side that is the south side of the golden gate bridge, and you can see them in this area here, right by the welcome center. the folks here saying that they're gathering together because they all share one thing in common that is that they oppose vaccine mandates that was, protesters are coming from near and far some of them are local. some of them are from out of state to take part in this afternoon's demonstration, they say a similar demonstration drew more than 4000 people in los angeles. but they say there's a heavy chp presence here in san francisco this afternoon. they say that that has. meant lower attendance this time, organizers and protesters say they're here to speak out against vaccine mandates. they say too many people are losing their jobs and livelihood because of the mandates, and they're being asked to surrender their individual and personal freedoms. this is about stopping the mandates. this is about our freedom. um the president, governor or anybody should not
be telling me. what i need to put into my body that should be between my doctor and myself. an organizer of asked the crowd to remain calm and avoid confrontations but sky to our helicopter picked up at least one protester being detained here. close to the bridge is unknown at this time of that person was. arrested or simply detained for a few moments to plan is for the protesters to walk the bridge at this time again. we don't know if that means they're going to be walking on the pedestrian walkway or if there will be any attempt to halt traffic on the golden gate, but again, you can see the crowd is here. uh so far they are simply gathering and rallying on the south side. that is the san francisco side of the gold gate bridge, and we are here monitoring what happens here? and of course, we'll try to monitor if there is any movement towards the bridge, whether they're going to stand up pedestrian walkway or if there's any attempt to try to block traffic, we're live in san francisco christian captain ktvu. box team. okay, christian. thank you for the update. we'll stay in touch. meantime the

october of 2020 was 3.8% just last october last month. that brings real wallet woes well, very much so since i'm on a fixed income. yes well, of course it's affecting us. we're coming out of the pandemic, so work is scarce and savings have been depleted to a certain extent. inflation can be more or less depending on what you're buying. i just felt my car up with gasoline cost just over $6. a year ago, i would have paid. $25 less than i went over to the local safeway there. i bought two bags of groceries. the cost was about $46. a year ago, it would have been $3.25 less overall price increases have been brutal gasoline up 40.2% used cars up 25.6. natural guest 21.7% up electricity up 9.1%
food at home up 7.1. all the staples stuff. i think i've gone up. um. i think people are feeling it in their pocket books by probably 100. if it's a family over $100 a month, then there's shrink flay shin, which is more common than you might think. food companies will take some of the chips out, for example, change the weight on the bag, but leave the price. the same shrink flay shin. and it all keeps adding up. yeah my sandwiches, $9 and my chips are $2. that's $11 for a little bit of lunch. so there you have it. and because of all those increases the real average hourly earnings of all employees decreased across the nation. half a percent from september to october. tom vacar ktvu fox two news. nationally the top products that are in shortest
