"today in the bay's" bob redell is live in vallejo. we still don't know what the odor is. can you smell it? >> reporter: not where i am. we're outside vallejo fire station 21, home of the emergency operations center which has been partially activated. the city of vallejo believes this is coming from somewhere
outside the city limits. the fire department along with pg&e is working to see if this can be a natural gas leak. the coast guard tells us around 8:00 last night they received a call from a ferry that says they smell a strong smell of oil off the waters and vallejo and also saw a sheen, a coast guard chopper crew went up and couldn't find the sheen. they'll try to locate it once the sun comes up. it prompted the city of vallejo to issue a shelter in place, advising residents on the southern part of town to stay inside, close windows and turn off air conditioning, if you have immune or respiratory issues. people started smelling the odor around 7:30 in the south part of town. the city says it has since received over 800 phone calls from concerned people. we know a number of people ended up at the emergency room at the solano medical center last night
with complaints ranging from problems breathing to feelings of nausea. >> probably around nine-ish, it smelled like asphalt, like black tar. had a friend, my neighbor for 20 years i've lived next to, he did black tar roofs. he always had a tar pot burning, and that's exactly what it smelled like. >> reporter: the city does not believe this odor is related to the release of anything at a local refinery which we heard of in the past. they do not believe that's the case this time around. again, the city has partially activated its emergency operations center, and they are also working with pg&e to see, again, if this could be a natural gas leak. live in vallejo, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> bob, thank you very much. a man facing very serious occasions this morning. a san francisco camp counselor accused of molesting three young campers during field trips has been arrested in arizona.

neighbors. but beautiful views, that's for sure. meteorologist anthony slaughter is in for kari hall. if you're hiking today, you might see some rain? >> most won't amount to an inch, just a few sprinkles. >> it's enough to make some of that radar green. it shows on our road weather index, i'll show you what else is going on in the east bay coming up. the search is on for a driver who struck a man near a south bay high school and then left him in the road to die. the car that police are looking for. police say that just after
