6:35 am
of crews coming in for a shift change. another thing. no structures have been threatened by this. because when it started, it went up hill. it started burning up hill. which means it went away from the homes. however, it is burning about 10 acres near the mountain winery. it is a very popular music venue out here. speaking with the batallion chief, he says the fire is 40% contained right now. 150 firefighters have been involved in battling the flames that started around mount eden road. many people in santa clara county got an emergency alert to shelter in place. if you were in this area. but fire officials say that was just to get the heavy machinery back here through the very narrow and winding roads. we spoke with one woman who says the flames came within a half mile of her home. >> you know, what is more frightening, is the power poles. it is right near the power poles. you don't know what can happen, you know, these things are volatile. and then the winds and everything. so of course, are you always going to be a little freaked

6:38 am
against president trump's crackdown on illegal immigration. now, about a month ago, the privacy commission and the safety committee both already voted to recommend canceling that agreement between the police department and immigration and customs enforcement. in 2016 under the obama administration, opd signed that agreement, which allowed police officers to act as i.c.e. agents. according to opd, officers have not done any operations under the agreement. and the department says the agreement was intended to enforce immigration law, an not intended to -- and not intended to enforce immigration law, excuse me, but intended to go after human traffickers and drug smugglers. but still, they believe the agreement conflicts with the city policies and status as a sanctuary city. and coming at a time of growing rumors of immigration in the community. >> there is a lot of apprehension and stress in the community. they are hearing that people are being picked up at the post office and people are being picked up at the county courthouse. >> and another issue going
