5:40 am
and that's why i've not been answering phone calls or anything from anywhere. i just -- it's kind of like puts you back to the level of grief that you originally had. >> gary condit's attorney released a statement that said in part, quote, the failure of authorities to bring formal closure to this tragedy after 15 years is very disappointing but in no way alters the fact that mr. condit was long ago completely exonerated by authorities. some hope at last of containing very stubborn flames as firefighters are making progress on the wildfire still burning in monterrey county. the soberanes fire is 15% contained. we are also learning that that fire has prompted the closure of six state parks along the central coast. at least through august 6th. the fire has now grown to more than 29,000 acres and 41 homes have been destroyed. those are the latest figures. cal fire has identified the bulldozer operator who died fighting the fire as robert reagan from fresno county.
5:41 am
i want to check the forecast root now with kari as we approach now our weekend finally. >> yes we will still have poor air quality in spots. because of the wildfire in the east bay, it will be moderate in the south bay and good in the peninsula and north bay. but the "spare the air" alert issued once again as the winds come in from the southwest and this will bring in more of that low quality air into the east bay. and it does pick up later on this evening. more of an onshore flow kicks in tomorrow evening and that will help cool us off but still hot throughout the day. looking at the high temperatures this afternoon. reaching 96 degrees in morgan hill. still the triple digits for the tri-valley as well as fairfield. while oakland and san francisco will be in the 70s. we'll talk about that weekend forecast coming up. mike has an update on that crash in the peninsula. >> delays 101 as well as b.a.r.t. system we still have 20-minute delays reported system wide. overnight track maintenance.
5:42 am
may have been delays there. waiting for updates from b.a.r.t. on the peninsula we see the slow down growing down toward just past university avenue. we have a camera right there. look at this. it is the southbound side. this is the lane shift. folks are supposed to shift over out of those lanes where the construction is. but just as we start to regain some of that space they've got crash over there blocking two lanes. two lanes squeezed through the middle. a tow truck should arrive about 6:00 so that build will continue. we'll track that. 280 is clear though by comparison looking to the bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights is on. fastrak has the backup. cash lanes. see that pattern. the you pay more, pay cash, today you goet a break. >> take them when you can get them. >> thank you very much, mike. coming up, we have our answer for lightning quick streak across the sky that everyone was talking about earlier this week. plus, when you look at the business -- i was eager to tell you about this. mus, when you look at business
