6:01 pm
could charge telecom companies at $250 per antenna. that's a far cry from the $1,200 for antenna ten into that cities like san jose now get. >> you're talking about an industry that will net $500 billion at full buildout. >> reporter: you're also talking about an industry that's a big player in california politics. in the 2016 election cycle, telecommunications companies contributed over $3 million to california democrats and republicans that are now deciding on this bill which by the way shot through committee on a 6-1 vote with two an extensions. they will probably win. it's only a matter of time when we'll be seeing these. you'll be able to check it out on the internet because they are going to make that faster, as well. in walnut creek, phil matier, kpix 5 were. back to you. >> thank you. to give you some perspective on it the use of smart devices and mobile internet have increased 2300% statewide since 2010. we are getting an idea of what the north bay's new smart
6:02 pm
train service will be like. the public invited to hop on for a free preview ride tomorrow. but our emily turner got a first look today. she is live in san rafael for us. emily. >> reporter: i can tell you it is a very beautiful ride. it's a smooth ride and it is certainly much faster than it would be to sit in rush hour traffic on 101. but the question is, will the public get on board? [ beep beep ] >> reporter: rush hour on 101 has been the bane of north bay drivers but now there is a light at the end of the tunnel. each smart train can carry 300 people, the full route running 10 stops from san rafael to santa rosa at speeds of up to 79 miles an hour. [ bell ] >> reporter: but its launch is six months late and plenty of would-be passengers feel like the project has moved in slow motion. >> it takes time because of your safety. so just have patience with us.
6:03 pm
we're almost there. >> do you think maybe you've missed the momentum of the public? are you worried that people maybe won't ride? >> i'm not worried. here's why. you saw how beautiful the ride is? and imagine you save 50% of your time instead of being highway 101, you see the scenery, free wi-fi and latte or beer in the evening? i think the choice becomes pretty clear. >> reporter: so how much time will riding "smart" save you on your compute? we decided to test it from the platform here at petaluma. starting the clock now. >> [ indiscernible >> by the time you get off the train here in san rafael, that entire ride takes just over half-hour. imagine doing that petaluma to san rafael commute during the morning rush hour. this is a much faster option. [ beep beep ]
6:04 pm
>> reporter: but it's not all celebratory bells and whistles. in fact, those sound effects have been the focus of debate in towns all along the tracks seeking quiet zones. the train is still waiting on a full okay from the federal railroad administration to begin anything more than a showcase route and the $500 million-plus project is still dealing with doubters especially when it comes to the $38 million more it will be spending to extend south to larkspur close to the ferry building. >> i the idea that you save time by getting on a train to a bus stop and then take the bus to a ferry and then taking the ferry to the city is going to attract people is pretty stupid. >> reporter: if you are interested in seeing what this is all about you are more than welcome to. tomorrow, saturday and tuesday, in fact it's a great way to come to the marin county fair. you are more than welcome to hop on those free rides again tomorrow, saturday and tuesday. allen? >> thank you. these are just the test runs but here's the question.
6:05 pm
when are the trains going to go to that full schedule? >> you know, that is the ultimate question and no one knows except for the fra. it's up to them to ultimately decide, yes, the test results that we have gotten back are good to go and you can start your commuter service. one interesting thing about this though is that these tracks behind me are much smarter and no pun intended than other tracks in the country. these are the first of their kind in the united states so they are basically creating the test as they are going through them. so that's one of the reasons that it's taking so much time. >> thank you. developing news in the south bay. some large homes in san jose saved thanks to quick work from fire crews on the ground and in the air. they were able to keep a 5-acre grass fire near lost ranch road from damaging homes. kpix 5's len ramirez shows us the strategy. >> reporter: well, firefighters are still on the scene of this grass fire that burned in the
6:06 pm
almaden valley this afternoon and very steep very rugged terrain. this fire got started a little after 3 p.m. today. it was actually seen by firefighters at a nearby fire station and they responded after seeing the smoke. they were able to get here just in the nick of time. the fire was racing up a hill and almost got to a house but they beat the flames back before anything was damaged. >> what's really surprising is how fast it moves. i think until you have seen it firsthand, you don't really appreciate how fast it is -- it's like it's liquid flowing towards you. you see it in the distance and then the next thing now it's right up against you and you feel the heat. >> reporter: firefighters say the cause of the fire was somebody who was doing weed abatement on this hillside with power equipment that somehow sparked the fire. now, firefighters say that if you are doing weed abatement and they encourage that to keep the weeds down so that fires don't get close to residences, that you do it before 10 a.m. before a lot of wind and before it gets very hot in the summer

months. reporting in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. in southern california, dozens of people have been evacuated from their homes in burbank. firefighters frantically trying to get a handle on a three- alarm brush fire there. at least 50 homes are in the path of flames. you can see there's a good portion of land that has already been charred. look how close it is to the homes. fire started about 3 hours ago. multiple fire departments helping with the firefight. helicopters making water drops. a man handed over to immigration agents in violation of san francisco's sanctuary city law is about to receive a six-figure settlement. pedro figueroa is an illegal immigrant from el salvador. in 2015 he reported a stolen car and officers learned they had a warrant on his arrest and they called immigration to detain him. now the city attorney's office
6:08 pm
has agreed to a $190,000 settlement. a san francisco ordinance bars law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration officials except in cases of violent crime. governor brown will stop the suspension of driver's licenses because of unpaid traffic ticket saying it ends up creating an endless cycle of debt. he says it doesn't actually help the state collect unpaid traffic money. the threat of suspending licenses did help opponents said. the new law starts saturday.

6:09 pm
a slice of san francisco that has of course produced generations of discussion over exactly how this part of the city should be developed and a couple of years ago, san francisco voters got a chance to have a say in that but today the state showed up and said, not so fast. >> as a trustee the city must do the best we can with the properties. >> reporter: can city voters make their own rules about their waterfront? >> you can't just interchange it. >> reporter: it goes back to 2013 and the ballot fight over the 8 washington development. remember the group that opposed what they called a wall on the waterfront? >> let's not build a new wall on the waterfront. >> reporter: not only did they get voters to kill that condo project, they came back in 2014 and passed a ballot measure giving san francisco voters the final say on all waterfront development and today, the city
6:10 pm
defended prop b in court. >> that the voters can be a decision-maker. and that proposition b was intended to advance this statewide interest. >> reporter: but the state lands commission disagreed arguing that california's waterfront is a statewide public trust and local voters just aren't equipped to make those decisions. >> i don't think we know that thousands of people who vote in an election that every, single decision maker is asking for the right reasons. >> reporter: and finally there is an element of politics here because the current head of the state lands commission is -- yes, former mayor gavin newsom who supported 8 washington opposed prop b and is now supporting the state's lawsuit against the city he once served as mayor. >> he has one of a few jobs as lieutenant governor and now as the chair of the state lands commission deciding whether to keep this lawsuit going is one of them. >> by reached out to the
6:11 pm
lieutenant governor today. they dismissed any suggestion that there's politics involved. why does this apply to more people in california? suppose there's a municipality on the california waterfront that wants to develop in way to hurt the coast, that's the state's argument. once cities can sort of make their own rules at the coast, you lose the idea of the state managing our coastline. now, it very much looks like this case will be going to trial in september. sacramento will have to make their case then. live at the embarcadero, wilson walker, kpix 5. we have learned the man accused of shooting a sacramento deputy in the face has a violent past. his ties to a double murder and the deal that put him back on the streets. >> bart was called out for having fake cameras on trains. starting today they are all real. and recording. but we have learned what they won't do. >> and tough any screening for passengers traveling into the

6:16 pm
attention shifted away from him and towards one of his fellow defendants. now, given the brutality of the crime and the gravity of the charges he faced, spam appeared to get off light just 16 months behind bars for pleading no contest to receiving stolen property and being an abscessry to the crime after the -- accessory to the crime after the fact. after his release he went to sacramento where he has been in and out of jail at least four times before his arrest yesterday. span is accused of shooting a sheriff's deputy with his own gun and then was taken into custody by the s.w.a.t. team at a nearby hotel. none of those other arrests in the sacramento area comes anywhere close to the severity of the charges he now faces. the attempted murder of a law enforcement officer. in mountain view, devin fehely, kpix 5. san jose police are investigating an attempted murder-suicide that left one man dead and one woman recovering from a gunshot wound. the man's body was found lying in a street this morning.
6:17 pm
a few blocks away from the 280- 101 interchange along creston lane. a woman was also found shot and injured. she called police from a house nearby saying the man who died shot her. she is expected to survive. police say the man shot and killed himself after shooting her. his name hasn't been released. there are new developments in the case of a santa cruz surgeon accused of sexual assaulting children. despite objections from prosecutors a judge set bail at nearly $6.5 million for james kohut. prosecutors were pro -- protestors, excuse me, out in front of the courthouse this morning to let the judge know they didn't want kohut released. the former dominican hospital neurosurgeon and two nurses are facing felony child sexual abuse charges involving several victims. if kohut is convicted, he faces 165 years to life in prison. well, all bart trains now have real working security cameras. but kpix 5's juliette goodrich

6:19 pm
are in every train, the question now is how many people are monitoring the camera feed. so if there is a crime in progress, will there be anyone who can monitor the feed live time? >> no. that's just not possible right now. we have to have more reliable wi-fi service with high security. >> if we need to retrieve the video we physically go out to the camera unit and download the video. >> reporter: bart employees can monitor live camera feeds in bart's maintenance shop from bart platforms and in bart elevators. but not on the trains. and because it's a recorded feed, if an incident happens on your particular bart train, you will need to report the car number which is above those doors when you contact bart police. >> the new train future train cars the train operator can see each car live from his cab. that's a huge improvement. we don't have that in these old cars. >> reporter: until the new train cars roll out, passengers say these new cameras do give
