♪ first thing you will notice it feels colder then yesterday. that is because it is. with that cold air in place here comes a little bit of snow moving this. it should president be much but we talk about this yesterday with the clipper system to kind of move this fast. they can dump an inch or so. but only place we will get accumulation is in the mountains but we have... all right. we will suspend forecast and
6:17 am
get out live to steve keeley because he has managed to talk to the fire commissioner this morning, steve. >> reporter: adam tiehl here on the scene, he has his notes and ready to update us as soon as we are's ready. thank you for waiting. >> absolutely good morning. we are at the scene of the two alarm fire where your philadelphia fire tenth did an outstanding job, mounting an interior attack. we were dispatched at 4:46. companies arrived a couple minutes later. after an hour, the fire was placed under control. we have four occupants difficulties laced but they have found shelter elsewhere. one injury was treated on the scene, no fatalities. we have a couple more hours because we are still finding a few hot spots. fire was on the fifth floor of what you can see behind he but several buildings are connected here so we are still finding hot spots and extinguishing fires on the roofs of these buildings.
6:18 am
>> unaudible. >> it is a building, a parapit , fire got inside that building feature and they are having to from the roof, actually cut into that, open it up and from underneath find a fire and extinguish it. >> unaudible. >> as far as we can tell the fire alarms are going off in the building, but we were not here on arrival. we will be here for a couple more hours. our fire marshals are here. normal partners from l and i, office of emergency management , we will investigate, do a cause and origin and we do have folks from the fire code unit with l and i here looking at fire alarm system and other building features. >> reporter: we're just down the street from the the guy who had your job first ben franklin and these streets, these buildings are hundreds of years old how tough sit to get these big rigs down these little streets. >> it the is really tough. that is a challenge. provided weather tonight is cooperating, not the too cold or this morning rather but
6:19 am
that is always a challenge for us. we need people to think about that and make sure streets are cleared. if it says no parking, don't park there because a lot of times that is for us, don't park in front of the fire hydrant, that can be a challenge with access. even when we get in the building these buildings have been modified over the years since ben franklin and they are connect and these buildings features it is hard to tell what leads to what. that is always a challenge. these fire fighters as i said do an incredible job. medics are providing support. once again incredible job by the philadelphia fire department. >> unaudible. >> when we get here we have fire in multiple locations and are still, you know, finding and extinguishing hot spots but fire is under control. it is not going anywhere else. we will be here for a couple more hours. >> reporter: alex and mike, i want to show you something, this is what burned here. i got pictures of the roof deck there one of the residents. there is one shot. you can tell by looking at that wood to you are tam with
6:20 am
decks, that is dry and old. here's another shot, best shot is right here, so you can see in the background there i don't want to zoom in but there is a barbecue pit up there. i was like do people do things with fires and barbecues. said yes, people up there smoke cigars, cigarettes, this burned ten years ago, cigarette careless smoking was cause then and maybe cause again but you can see, that is all wood, all dried out wood and it gets dried out by sitting in the sun all day year round. wooden structures here as well that is why fire was so big, so bad and why jared was reporting those embers flying through the air because that is what happened when you burn old wood like that. this gives you sense what caught fire and maybe why alarms didn't go off because fire was going up on the roof so nobody below it will smell smoke before they saw orange glow in their windows. so there you go. >> yes. we were first looking at the fire and seeing those flames
6:21 am
coming out of the roof. now it makes sense. >> we were walking into work and whole olde city area over there was orange. well, there is a super sign, super bowl is near, players, coaches are gathering for houston for what used to be the media day. see the questions from a child that almost brought tom brady to tears.

6:31 am
rain or snow showers with the high temperature of 43 degrees so, another shall we say interesting morning bob kelly. >> busy, interesting morning but hats off to philadelphia fire fighters. to swing those hook and ladders down these small side streets in center city and getting this under control quickly we solute them. live look at market street still block from third down to front street, again fire location leticia and market kind of just a block off of second street right there. lets go to the maps with local detours around second and market in olde city, septa has six bus routes on a detour but good news is that the market frankford line is not impacted , again, that is second street station rolls right under, coming up at second and market, stairwells are opened and stop is operable so no problems this morning. other fire location at bensalem, byberry roadblock between hume villain knights road a four car accident east
6:32 am
on the schuylkill expressway, right at manayunk railroad bridge there at belmont avenue on ramp and southbound i-95 we have a disabled truck at allegheny avenue interchange causing a back up in to downtown. mike and alex, back over to you. lets go back to what we were talking about we have an update on the fire in bensalem , sky fox still live over this house fire on the 2200 block of byberry road. we have just learned two people were taken to the hospital, of course, we will continue to update as we get more information on that one. lets get back then to the fire in an apartment building here in olde city. it broke out just down the street from our station. this is leticia and market street in between second street and front street near franklin fountain and also gaslight the restaurant. >> that is where steve's standing right now in the middle of it, steve. >> reporter: right here near i-95 too and good thing i can see people in the rubbernecking but that is how close we are to i-95.
6:33 am
main thoroughfare through there. traffic moving along which is not doing along market street and the reason why look at these fire trucks. i bet that goes back to the wells fargo building right outside your window and see it in our shot, 25 fire trucks at last count from the fire commissioner and we will hook a left here and show you everybody out with their dogs and people that get out with their pets super happy. it is hard to get out with the cat. i talk to joan park and her boyfriend who said grab the cat and get out of here. her injuries from the cat who said leave me alone i want to go hiding. they are worried about their cat. that gives you a sense how cats act in fire. red paw relief will help them out. look at the this job here these streets real tiny. we are just down the street from the founder of philly's first fire department ben franklin and adam tiehl we asked him about these little streets and these old buildings and connected and he
6:34 am
says that is the biggest concern. these guys did a phenomenal job keeping that fire from wenting from building to building, as you heard our photographer jared voll say embers were burning. i have a couple of pictures from rick mcclosekey, deck is selling point of this building and he was showing me pictures of the sky line views. no matter what the weather is even in january people are hanging out there. people were out there last night. when they heard noise they thought people were just making noise on the deck. it was sound of the fire crackling and wood burning. you can see this all old wood, my mother just had her deck replaced. this looks like it. old dry wood. sits in the sun year round. it is exposed, dries out and you throw a cigarette the wrong way and it will set this thing on fire. they had a tire ten years ago. careless smoking was the key.
6:35 am
in this case, the neighbors suspect somebody is a big cigar place to hang out and smoke. somebody suspects maybe discarded cigar or another cigarette may have caused this fire. because it is on the roof, it doesn't spread down, it spreads up and none of the apartments were catching fire. that was good thing but stuff was helding from the roof and going in the fifth floor apartments through sky line and that was a concern and that is why one of the rest tents we talk to jason atling was putting out, the burning plastic on his couch. it hit hit the couch as he got the his girlfriend out and she started to wake everybody up on her way down. good news here in olde city thanks to the fire department and a lot of the tenants who helped each other get out of that building. the concern is they have pulled fire alarms in the hallway and they didn't hear alarm go off but they say there are alarms right new and they will look into why those alarms did not the go off if that is the case, when they
6:36 am
pulled it they didn't sound alarms they had to kick everybody's door. >> i'll be darned, they will check on that. steve, thank you. 6:35. >> acting attorney general kelly yates out of the job this morning. >> is what donald trump's tait phrase: >> you are fired. >> he did it a couple times last night. >> yates was relieved of her tooth is as attorney general, after she refused to defend president trump's controversial immigration travel restrictions over his plans to stop the syrian refugee program. >> lauren has more on why she was fired. >> hello, you said it right, donald trump said you are fired. sally yates questioned her boss and it seems that move cost her, her job. the hours after she expressed her concerns over constitutionality of the president's refugee immigration ban she was released of her tooth is, in a memo she openly vested her refusal to defend president's move in court saying she was not convinced it was lawful or consistent with the agency's obligation to quote stand for
6:37 am
what is right but firing adds more fuel to an already growing fire, over that executive order that resulted in protests erupt nothing airports all across the globe and legal challenge filed in courthouses all across the country. many administration officials have moved to distance themselves from the policy, and even some of trump's top advisors made it clear they were not consulted on its i am limitation. now yates has a lot of people standing behind her. >> i want to solute sally yates who has taken a stand based on moral, and legal principal in the highest tradition of the department of just advertise saying that these orders cannot be de fended natalie rule of law and morality is more important then politics of the moment and the impulsive edicts of a
6:38 am
ruler who apparently fails to understand that or at least this administration does. >> trump soon followed with the statement accusing yates betrayed department have of justice by refusing to enforce legal order designed to protect citizens of the united states. he named long time federal prosecutor dana boente, u.s. attorney for eastern advertise trick of virginia as yates replacement. yates was a hold over from the obama administration until senator jeff sessions trump's pick is confirmed and senate the judiciary committee is expected to vote on that and could be approved within days by the full senate. >> even later today. >> it could happen. >> yeah. you know, donald trump is an early morning tweeter. >> he is. >> i picture him, he wakes up, still in bed and grabs his phone and just start tweeting his thoughts, this is what i think about what happened last night or what will happen today. >> has he done it today. >> yes, he has. >> fifteen minutes ago, he said nancy pelosi and fake
6:39 am
tears chuck schumer held a rally at steps of the supreme court and the mic did not work a mess. just like the democratic party >> and out of office for just ten days former president barack obama is, breaking his silence, regarding president trump's travel ban, from out in palm springs. >> spokesmen released a statement that reads in part the president fund. ly disagrees with the notion of the discriminating against individual because of their faith or religion. >> all right. well, there is a sure sign natalie super bowl is days away, it the is opening night for super bowl 51 in houston, they used to call it media day we will hear the question from a child that almost brought tom brady to tears, mr. tough guy.
6:40 am

we're checking in one of the big fires we are dealing with this morning, this one in bensalem sky fox still live over the home, you can see there is still a lot of smoke coming out of the top there, still a lot more work to be done, this is on the 2200 block of byberry road, and we have learned that two people were taken to the hospital and , of course we will keep working on this but bob, look at that smoke. >> that is black smoke from the roof of the home from the last time, we were over there.
6:43 am
this is new. last time we showed a shot from the white smoke around edges of the home. fire fighters are still, fire fighter on the ladder, they are all still surrounding it. again, byberry road in bensalem. hats off to our fire fighters, working hard and early on both this fire in bensalem and also the one here in olde city. so, our thoughts and prayers for not only fire fighters but also for homeowners there. lets go to the maps. that location byberry road, between hulmeville road and knights road just off of the pennsylvania turnpike and i-95 there squeezing in bensalem. downtown here olde city market street remains blocked from third to front street, second street remains closed because of that two alarm fire this morning. septa has six buses that are still on tea tore, what is tough is six buses here all coming out of the bus depot, that is right there at front and market, and market frankford line is still not impact this morning.
6:44 am
here's situation we are on i-95, southbound i-95 at allegheny avenue on ramp, a disable truck, and that is causing a big delay for everybody coming out of the north east philadelphia trying to get into downtown and then also an accident on the schuylkill expressway, eastbound, heavy already from conshohocken all the way into belmont avenue. so we have a lot going on in this early tuesday morning, lets see if mother nature will cooperate, sueby has forecast in 15 seconds. 6:44. we are starting to see snow moving in the viewing area. this is a similar situation to yesterday afternoon where we will get a little snow squall with poor visibility briefly and coating of accumulation and that is happening in lancaster county starting to
6:45 am
edge into chester county, pennsylvania this morning. so, nothing yet in philadelphia, but we could see a few flakes flying our way this morning. shouldn't accumulate but we are expect ago accumulation up in the mountains probably a couple inches up there which is good news for ski resorts. there will be times this afternoon where the area that got accumulation yesterday won't get much today because it is passing by to the north but don't be surprised if you see rain or snow shower later on in the afternoon today and then we should be finished with precipitation at least until the end of the weekend. 27 degrees in philadelphia right now. sixteen in mount pocono. twenty-nine in wildwood. twenty-six in lancaster. this is what it feels like lower 20's, mid 20's, teens, out there this morning, so, maybe add an extra layer, to what, to yesterday, and sun showers still possible, 48 degrees tomorrow. and, breezy on groundhog day. we expect sunshine here but
