lillian. >> dan and kristen, we're at the intersection of highway 12 and the cooler temperatures have made a difference. the flames have died down along the ridge of hamill family lines but up highway 12 and north of it we saw a lot of flames that caused a lot of devastation. 5,000 acres have burned so far. we saw vineyards gone, homes destroyed and power poles and trees down. the surrounding area were especially hard hit. about half the homes appear to have been destroyed by flames. we spoke to one of the lucky ones whose home still is in tact. >> the house is okay and we're being -- putting outthe smoldering and see what we can do. >> reporter: you just came back? >> we evacuated last night around 11:00. >> reporter: so were you
surprised to see your house still standing? >> very surprised. the neighbors called and said our house was still standing. so i said let's go. we had livestock here, so we came to get our livestock. >> reporter: how are they? >> burned some. but little pigmy goats. everyone around us is gone. next to us over here is still here. so the couple over here and the fire department came win bulldozers and they did save it basically by bulldozing all the land. >> what do you make of that? >> it's great. thank god for cdf. >> reporter: back here live at highway 12, the police have set up a barricade here because of everything going on in glen ellen. there are too many hazards on and along highway 12. that's the latest near glen ellen. abc 7 news. >> well, fires keep burning in a hard hit part of santa rosa
where flames destroyed a number of businesses and hospitals are dealing with not just people but patients that had to be rushed from other facilities. >> live from santa rosa with more. katy. >> kristen and dan, i can tell you that the wind has died down to almost no wind at this point. it is chillier, which is a good thing for firefighters and ib want to show you the fire on the hill. that threatened kaiser permanente fire earlier. and that fire has been greatly diminished. but if we pan to the right, you can see how dangerously close those flames came to kaiser permanente hospital. the blue light is the edge of the hospital. you can see doctors and nurses evacuating that hospital. scary moments this morning as the flames were licking at the edge of this building, this area
and staff has worked tirelessly despite losing their own homes and many of the people that were in this hospital, some of them transferred to santa rosa memorial hospital and that's where we spoking to dr. chad krilch earlier today. >> we know many people have lost their homes, so we have shelters set up for them so they can rest here and either come back to work or go to see what is going on with the places where they lived. >> reporter: memorial hospital is asking any medical profect n professionals to call into their labor line and they could use volunteers in certain professions. so please take the time to call in if you're able to volunteer. for the residents around this
area, please stay away from the er unless you are having a medical emergency. if you need medication, they're asking you go to urgent care or some facility that does not get in the way of emergency medical responses because they have had many people coming in today with not only burn injuries but a lot of people with respiratory issues. we're live in sanltau rosa, abc 7 news. >> some of the most gut wrenching damage we have seen all day long is in the silverado country club area. >> and once again live. katy. >> reporter: kristen, dan, since you saw us last we've crossed the street. we're on the other side of the street from the house we showed you yurler. but it's all so devastating. in this example you can see part of a wall still standing but really standing amid a sea of rubble and like in so many other examples, there are still hot spots burning here.
they might be too small for you to see at this point. it was a few hoir hours ago i was able to talk to a cal fire chief and he talked to us about what it's been like. >> this one hits close to home. i've been assigned to this facility for just short of 10 years. so this is my home away from home. i feel like a member of the community here. i know a lot of the residents that have been effected by this and several people who have lost their homes. so it's very disheartening to be out there and there's definitely helplessness that we go through when we have incidents like this. >> reporter: help on the way in the form of reinforcements. he let us know they're expecting tomorrow and as we've heard drew tooma reporting all night. better the battalion chief told me it's always unpredictable. he says all crews can do is
focus on sfrtructure protection abc 7 news. >> thanks very much. we continue to watch the winds very closely and for the latest on that, let's head to meteorologist. a lot of folks are wondering and asking how did the wind get so fast in the north bay late last night and earlier this morning? it's known as a down sloping wind effect. you have an area of low pressure to our east, high pressure to our north and these two are opposing forces and they create a wind tunnel effect and that wind tunnel was aimed right at us in the bay area. those winds come over and down our hills and the wind will compress, heat up and warm the atmosphere around it and bring in the breezy, warm, dry conditions and that's what we had late last night and earl a ethis morning and they came in
excess of 40 miles per hour. really encouraging news for firefighters. you're hearing from all of our reporters out across the north bay. they're all commenting how it's relaxed. along with calm wind, we're seeing the humidity levels rise significantly. when the fires are burning early this morning, humidity levels between 10 and 14% and those numbers have drastically changed. 50 to 60% range. so the winds are calming down. the humidity is heightening and that's good news for firefighters. the winds will stay calm through tomorrow afternoon. they have an 18-hour window where the winds will remain calm and into the evening tuesday and early wednesday we do see those winds likely picking up once again. so something will be tracking but we still have that red flag
warning for high fire danger. still in effect for all the areas shaded in red.red.red.red. we do still have the active fire and it's there to spread rapidly since containment is really low right now. >> this next 24 hours will be critical and welcome news certainly for firefighters. >> animals tonight are also being evacuated. >> not just people. jonathan bloom is live at the napa county animal center. >> reporter: the generosity has been arriving as quickly as the animals. the lobby piled high with dog and cat food brought for the dozens of animals that have started to arrive here, mainly with their owners dropping them off as they fled from the fire. they tell us all the food will beexhausted within the next couple of days. some of it's been donated by the very same pet owners dropping off their pets. in all it's brought in more than
100 petsz. 50 dogs and 50 cats. this is not the easiest thing for animals to go through. >> they're all just really stressed out. this is pretty scary for the animals as it is for the people getting evacuated, having to leave right away. people may have a disaster kit for their pets but maybe they're not leaving with everything they do and some of the vet offices in town are open if people need medicine for their pets too. >> reporter: yes, that's a rooster you just heard. it turntz out it's also taken in some livestock, chickens, geese, alpackaus, burrows and a goat. and at this point that's pretty much all they have room for. they have a pastor for the horses to run around. so right now they are cramped but comfortable. the dogs and cats, more than more room due in part to the cages and carriers that have been donated by people.
as for the food, they're still accepting donations. pet doggy plans to bring fromd f santaoo cruz in the nea future. >> great to see all the generous people wanting to help. >> people really responding. centered in north santa rosa all day lang. >> so much devastation there and hawaii filed this report earlier from the fountain grove neighborhood. >> reporter: as night falls the devastation from the fire continues to be truly unreal. we've got an eery glow all around this neighborhood. this is the fountain grove neighborhood near the fountain grove golf course. we've counted dozens and dozens of homes that have been utterly destroyed from the raging fire storm which blew through here early, early this morning. there's truly nothing lefts. in fact for a long time we
couldn't tell whether they were private homes or apartment complex. they were upscale homes built near the fountain grove golf course. beautiful parts, parts, parts of the neighborhood are bluffs over looking the golf course. but so many homes, neighborhood after neighborhood completely gone. there's a garage door, another broken gas main. we're seeing so many of them. folks had very little notice, very little warning about getting out. we've seen a lot of cars that have been left in the driveways. they have been completely gutted and burned through and through from this fire. in fact, so badly burned we can't even recognize the make and model of some of the vehicles. here we have here a decoration for halloween. really one of the few things that have survived this fire. have seen very few people in
this neighborhood because it's still off limits. police have set up barricades and road blocks to keep people out because at this point it's still too unsafe. we have been allowed inside the neighborhood as long as -- but we're taking our chances of course and we know the risks. we have been trained, safety training. but for folks who want to venture in and check out what's been lost, it's just simply too dangerous. as we come down here one of the few things that remains in tact is that u hall truck. the back of it is singed. but most of it is still in tact. unclear if somebody was moving in or moving out. scenes of devastation continue pretty much everywhere and for most of the day we were seeing active fires to the north and to the south of us. for now it seems like the smoke has dissipated a bit.
helped spread it very quickly and we've shown you pictures of embers blowing in every direction with 50, 60, 70 miles per hour gusts. >> there's heightened security at the scene of the tubbs fire. >> some reports of looting, not widespread. there is a mandatory evacuation area in sunrise until tomorrow morning. >> anybody out in the areas in the mandatory evacuation zones will be subject to stop and potentially arrest if they refuse to either go back inside or leave the area. in this case they would have to leave a mandatory evacuation zones. >> they're anxious to protect property and insure the safety of their officers. >> where you saw that official speaking is the command center that's been set up in the sonoma county fair grounds in sonoma. >> reporter: i'm here at the fair grounds in sonoma. you can see all american tent
and fire support. they're turning this big open field into an incident command center. you can see the inmate fire crews setting opkitchen. they expect to serve up to 3,000 firefighters starting tomorrow morning. they have so many firefighters in the lines they don't know how many they have. that's one of the duties they have overnight trying to figure out how many are there and exactly how many people. because you see with such a fast moving wild fire more than crews responding quickly. some of the smallest stations will send their crews out there and start working. so they're going to figure out how many people they have and add up all of those assets and they set up a logistics center. they held briefings here tomorrow morning. starting at 11:00 a.m. they have people starting on the financial aspects of it. how to get reimbursed for all
this activity. this will be a lot of activity in this field tonight, setting up housing, food. the tentsz are showing up. activity all night long. reporting in sonoma county at the fair grounds. dan noise, abc 7 news. >> now, the safari west wild animal park was evacuated. >> it said as of late this afternoon, the fences of safari west stand and at no point were the fences cut or were safari ♪ ♪
lnchs right. before we take a break from our coverage. we want to get you caught up with the latest headlines in north bay. >> evacuations have been ordered in the oak community. they received about 100 phone calls for possible missing people. six large fires across the north bay have scorched more than 80,000 acres. there are 10 confirmed fatalities. at least 1500 structures have been destroyed. >> and that's it for now. thank you so much for watching. i'm kristen. >> for our entire team working so hard out in the field for hours and hours, we appreciate your time. we're wrapping up 25 hours of straight coverage on air and online. >> and drew, you were here last night when it all began and we certainly hope you stay safe tonight and we'll be back on air at 4:00 in the morning. >> we're going half an hour
early to keep you up to date. we're going to leave you with dramatic images from a day we'll remember for a very long time. this is just very, very sad to see. >> it's mother nature at her worst i guess. >> sadly we have found another neighborhood that has been completely wiped out. this is a complete and utter moon scape. >> look over here. no look over there. >> pretty much everything levelled to the ground. >> we're in a state of devastation right now. >> sun is setting on a day of utter devastation. >> it's a great neighborhood, great neighbors. but it's tough. >> it looks horrible now but this is really a beautiful spot
and it will grow back and our homes will come back and today, we celebrate christopher columbus, the ineffective navigator who set out to find india and missed it by 8,901 miles. >> rerouting. turn left. rerouting. turn left. rerouting. turn left. >> from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live." tonight chadwick boseman. from "the last man on earth" january jones. and music from dhani harrison. now, from this point on, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: thanks for coming. very nice. hope you had a good weekend. i certainly did. my wife and i went tedng in central california on the weekend. on the way home our electric car ran out of electric. [ laughter ] i went and got a flu shot at walmart while it was charging for three hours. and i got in a fight with the president's son on twitter. so just a normal regular -- [ cheers and applause ] you know, the usual weekend. on saturday morning my wife woke me up with the phone in her hand because president trump tweeted the following, late night hosts are dealing with the democrats for their very unfunny and repetitive material. always anti-trump. should we get equal time? which is an interesting question. especially as the president tweeted this demand for equal time after watching f fox & friends breathlessly drool about how great he is for three
hours straight. as far as being repetitive goes, i agree with donald trump. i hate it when people are repetitive. >> it's all fake news. >> fake news. >> fake news. >> fake news. >> fake news. >> fake news. >> believe me. >> believe me. >> believe me. >> believe me. >> believe me. >> believe me. >> believe me. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> that i can tell you. >> i guarantee you. >> i guarantee you. >> i guarantee you. >> i guarantee you. >> i guarantee you. >> i guarantee you. >> i guarantee you. >> he referred to my hands if they're small something else must be small. i guarantee you there's no problem. i guarantee. >> jimmy: he also -- so -- [ cheers and applause ] we got that out of the way. put the tweet up again. because he took the time with those little thumbs to put the word "unfunny" in quotes which
means we have a president who doesn't know how air quotes work. we basically from joey from "friends" running this country. i responded to president joey, then little joey, donald j. trump jr., djtj, he got into it. he replied to me after i replied to his father. he wrote thoughts on harvey weinstein, # asking for a friend. i don't know if you know this there's an expose in "the new york times" about sexual allegations made against the movie producer harvey weinstein who is not the president and isn't particularly well known outside of new york. but the insinuation was that we as part of the biased left wing media propaganda machine wouldn't say anything about him because a democrat. never mind the thousands of jokes about bill coz bowe and bill clinton and the other bill of that ilk. you mean that big story from the failing liberal once headed "new york times"? i think it's disgusting. he replied great, i look forward to your monologues next week.
you're probably due for a change if only for a moment or two. i responded great, in the meantime, enjoy this. and i posted a link to the video of danny on the bus to hollywood clip. it just so happened to be the one-year anniversary of that taping release so i thought we should celebrate. people are pointing to the fact that harvey weinstein was a clinton supporter -- i'm not defending hillary clinton. fact is her campaign did take money from what turned out to be a high profile man who has been accused of sexual harassment multiple times. not just one. she took money from harvey weinstein and donald trump who donated to hillary's campaign. note to djtj, just time you are defending your father, you think it's good to draw a comparison between him and a sexual predator? don't. doesn't help. but anyway -- [ applause ] i did make a promise.
i did promise a harvey weinstein joke. here it goes. what's the difference between harvey weinstein and the pillsbury dough boy. when the pillsbury offers you a roll, he doesn't ask you to take a shower for it. there you go. by the way, i have a question. the video of trump on the bus with billy bush, is there anyone in our audience who had not seen that before? really? one? so we found the one person in america besides you who has not seen it yet because this person contacted me on instagram asking me to send this to him. >> hey, yo, jimmy kimmel. i need you to send that footage, that bus footage with him talking about grabbing a [ bleep ], you know? i want to hear that. give it to me. give me that footage, jimmy. it's snoop dogg. send it to me. you know what i'm talking about.
you shut his [ bleep ] up. mm. send me that footage, jimmy. this is your boy snoop dogg. [ applause ] >> jimmy: snoop is so high he doesn't know how to use google. i am going to send it to him as long as he promises not to show it to anyone. all right? it's for your very red eyes only, snoop. this is great. this is the number one trump feud of the day if not the year so far. donald trump's first wife, ivana, not to be confused with ivanka, has a new book coming out tomorrow called "raising trump" in which he talks about what a great job she did raising those kids. and there's interesting nuggets in the book. she claims when pregnant with her first child trump told her he didn't want to name him donald jr. because, and i quote, what if he's a loser? and now every time they talk, he's like, i told you we shouldn't -- anyway.
[ laughter ] [ applause ] apparently ivana now, i guess she gets along well with the president, her ex-husband, and melania, but that might not be the case any longer thanks though this interview she did with amy robach. >> how often do you talk? >> once every 14 days. i have direct number to white house but i no really want to call him there because melania is there and i don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or anything like that. because i'm basically first trump wife. i'm first lady, okay? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: now, to me, that seemed like a joke. look at all the lipstick and the red shirt. she's obviously working as a clown at birthday parties. but melania apparently did not find it amusing and her spokesperson issued this statement today. mrs. trump has made the white house a home for barron and the president. she loves living in washington, d.c. and is honored by her role as first lady of the united states. she plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell
books. there's clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise. and just like that, the real housewif housewives of transylvania was born. how good is this? you really have to hand it to them. just when the trump show starts to get in a bit of a rut, the producers throw in a totally unexpected -- like when nick showed up to surprise kaitlin on "the bap lochelorette." oh, no. okay. i lost you on that. it's a show here on -- anyway, been quite a holiday weekend. you know it's a big weekend when the vice president makes news. mike pence made headlines on sunday when he walked out of the colts/49ers game after some of the players knelt during the national anthem. flew all the way to indianapolis to see them retire peyton manni manning's jersey at halftime, but he got up and left.
he protested, very meta. then after he did it, he got a lot of praise from those who agree with him. so of course, his boss jumped in to take credit for that. trump wrote, i asked vice president pence to leave stadium if any players kneel disrespecting our country. i am proud of him and second lady karen. he can't let mike pence have credit for anything. i am so proud of mike pence for doing the awesome thing i told him to do. [ laughter ] [ applause ] mike pence flew all the way to indiana to a game where he knew almost for certain the players were going to kneel, pretended to be surprised by that and stormed out in a huff. for someone who seems to disapprove of gay people so much, mike pence is a bit of a drama queen. [ laughter ] [ applause ] by the way, this seems like as good a time as any to mention mike pence's bunny rabbit has a book deal. for real, the pence family
rabbit whose name is marlon bundo has a book coming out in march. a day in the life of the vice president. in the book marlon follows his leader around. it's only a matter of time before that bunny is testifying in front of congress. but the publisher sent us an early copy of the book. you want me to read a little bit of it? [ applause ] what if everyone said, nah, not really. marlin bundo's day in the life of the vice president. my name is marlon bundo and i am the bunny of vice president mike pence. every morning vpmp wakes up next to mother, which is what he calls his wife. i'd say something about how creepy that is, but they feed me, so screw it. [ laughter ] after that, vpmp eating his favorite breakfast, a slice of white bread and a half cup of unflavored yogurt. then it's time to go get yelled
at by the bright orange carrot man. [ laughter ] one day, i will eat this carrot man starting with his head. well, you know what? you're going to have to buy it, if you want to know the ending. we'll take a break, when we come back, we'll get a visit from the past on a very special day. history will be made when we return. so stick around. we'll be right back. [ applause ] abc's "jimmy kimmel live" brought to you by the subaru crosstrack. (butch growls at man) he's looking at me right now, isn't he? yup.

"marshall" and the show marshall's. >> how can we make this work? >> jimmy: we got to think ahead the next time. maybe for the sequel. there won't be a sequel, though. >> there will not. >> jimmy: most everybody knows. let's be honest, not that many people know but thurgood marshall was the first african-american on the supreme court, but this movie takes place well before that in his life. >> you can clap for that. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: when he was a young lawyer traveling around the country righting wrongs. >> yes, this is way before that. this is 1941, before the u.s. enters world war ii. this case is a lesser known case. it's the state of connecticut versus joseph spell. it's a rape case. and that's why we chose it because, you know, if it was brown versus board of education, if it was him entering the supreme court, you would know the end of that story. this is something that you don't know. >> jimmy: that's right, yeah. also it's fun to see him as a
young lawyer and think about hm in human terms in that way. >> yeah, because he was a fun guy. you know, he liked his bourbon, his cigars, his cigarettes. he was a man about town. he had friends in the harlem ren in sans. >> jimmy: how do you learn that stuff about him? >> reading. just -- it's, you know, in this case, i -- you know, when i played real people in the past, i did a lot of firsthand research with the family. the family was kind of hands off in this case. >> jimmy: oh, is that right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: but didn't his son write you a letter? >> his son was basically the deciding factor of me playing the role. you know. i had reservations about playing the character because we're different complexions but the producer paula wagner and director reginald hudland pulled out this letter in our meeting. after we talked about
everything. we debated. here's a letter from the son john marshall. and he wants you to play thurgood. >> jimmy: it is possible that reggie hudland forged that letter to get you to play him? >> it is possible. but i did check. >> jimmy: that's pretty great for his son to write -- because i'm trying to imagine if there was a movie about my dad's life, it would basically be about gardening and bowling and maybe an asthma attack every once in a while. but -- >> but who would you want to play it, though? >> jimmy: the only celebrity that really looks like my dad is wolf blitzer. i guess you want a younger version. so maybe wolf blitzer in his first acting role. as my dad. this is pretty cool, too. this is something that samuel jackson posted to his instagram account on saturday which is a great instagram account because
it's a lot of pictures the of him and magic on vacation. >> true. >> jimmy: where was this taken, just to start with? >> we were hanging out. i can't really say where -- >> jimmy: this is something marvel related. >> you know, yeah. >> jimmy: i know there's a marvel theme going on here, but i have no idea whether it's a convention. it looks like a film set. i'll start with that. was it a set? >> it was not a set. but it was a marvel thing. >> jimmy: it was a marvel thing. >> you know this always gets me in trouble. >> jimmy: my job is to ask questions. your job is to not answer thel. >> somebody messed up a little bit and i saw what happened to them. >> jimmy: all right. so you can't really tell us -- whose idea was it to take the picture? >> i am not ashamed to say -- because usually i'm the one that will say i'm not going to take. it was my idea. yeah, yeah.
because i see cheeto and mackie allot. very rare that you have sam jackson and fishburn in the same place. laurence fishburne will be in the antman movie? >> is that okay? i think that's well known. >> jimmy: if i say it, it's okay. >> yes, he is. >> jimmy: that's all you can say about it. is this maybe for the tag or the end of one of the upcoming movies like "thor." >> no, that's too many black people -- >> jimmy: is there a quota? i didn't know that. >> you got to wait for black panther for that to happen. >> jimmy: black panther, i was thinking about black panther today. it doesn't have a secret identity like most superheroes. he has an identity. i know this because i was a lonely child reading all his
comic books. he doesn't have a secret identity. is that disappointing? >> no, no, no, no. there's still the -- there's a certain like fear factor that the mask creates and there's still sort of like a legend around the character that has been created. i guess you would have to either go to some of the comic books or see it in a movie, but there's an aspect of it that's like is this black panther thing real? that aspect is there. you don't need the secret identity because there's still the mystery of, you know, the panthers prowess. >> jimmy: it seems like you've given this a lot more thought than i ever would have guessed you had. did the black panther's son write you a letter asking you to play him? there's a lot of research going on. >> no. >> jimmy: but if he had, that would be pretty exciting, yeah.
