healther health-- heather holmes has the night off. >> and i'm ken wayne. a large fire broke out in lake county just a few miles south of where the rocky fire has burned almost 70,000 acres. the new fire is burning near jerusalem valley road about 700 miles north of middletown and it's called the jerusale fire. in a matter of hours this fire erupted from 100 acres to more than 3,000 acres. a viewer sent mark tamayo video of the plume of smoke we're going to show you in a little bit. >> it's being hit at this time by multiple helicopters. it's turning out to be another ugly fire. >> reporter: there are mandatory evacuations in place in jerusalem valley, east of spruce grove road. jerusalem county road is shut down to all traffic at spruce road right now.
calfire was making drops on this fire. check out this giant plume of smoke. joining me on the phone joe fletcher. we just lost the connection. we're going to try to get to the fire captain in just a little bit to get to the latest on the fire. we understand there's zero containment on this fire. if there's any good news in all of this tonight, it is that that fire is burning away from the community of middletown. again, we're going to get calfire on the phone in just a little bit to get the very latest on this fire. meantime the je rusalem fire is burning just a little distance from the rocky fire. over the past week and a half, firefighters have been able to get the upper hand. tonight that rocky fire is 85% contained. it was just yesterday that fire officials lifted all evacuation
orders caused by the rocky fire. all right, we're going to check in with meteorologist mark tamayo to get the latest on the weather conditions. which are always a big factor in fighting these fires. >> it was always a big factor. this is not a sight we wanted to see. we basically saw a big smoke plume with the rocky fire. a few days over a week ago today basically the same deal with the rapid growth in this fire. take a look as we came closer to this. this picture snapped by calfire earlier today and that big smoke plume visible across a big portion of the bay area. visible by san rafael. healdsburg and vallejo. 3,000acres at last check with that big growth out there. there's the distance locater. taking a look at the wind observation and temperature observations. you do have temperatures
cooling down into the 70s. winds for the most part are calm. i had a weather reporter out in this region closer to the fire zone reporting stronger winds about two hours ago. the winds have backed up. and the humidity level as you can see 34, 33%. and those moisture levels will continue to ramp up into the evening hours. so just for perspective. you can see the rocky fire how widespread that was and still is. and then the jerusalem fire coming in closer here at the fire terrain. at least in this region. you can see where hidden valley lake is in this area. the locater from calfire right around jerusalem lake to the creek. just like the rocky fire a lot of terrain here making access very difficult for the fire crews. you can see basically the proximity to hidden valley lake in this region as well. forecast for monday, temperatures will be cooler than today. mostly in the mid- to upper 80s. we will wrap this up with the wind forecast.
the winds will be increasing throughout the evening hours. as you can see by 1:00 and the bad news here with increasing throughout the afternoon hours approaching 20 to 22. so tomorrow will be a little cooler but the winds do pick up into the afternoon hours and just like the rocky fire unfortunately there's a lot of terrain here and it seems this fire has momentum of its own. that will be a big challenge for the fire crews out there. we'll keep a close eye on the conditions in this region. also update the forecast coming up in a little bit. >> all right, mark. thank you. we want to check in now with captain joe fletcher. give us the very latest conditions on the fire right now. >> okay, so the fire started this afternoon about 3:42 i think. currently a little over3,000 acres. the fire started in the area of jerusale and canyon road. made a north-northeast movement. and is currently moving in an easterly direction. so the entire area of jerusalem
valley which is jerusalem road has been evacuated. evacuation center is at middletown high school south of the fire. weather tonight forecast wind of course. but a little better humidity. recovery. so they'll be working through the evening to try to contain the fire. >> how people are affected by that and how many people have been sent to that evacuation at middletown high school. >> we don't have an exact amount. most people will have friends and relatives in the area. so we won't see them automaker at the evacuation center. >> how about the structures threatened. do you have a count on how many structures have been damaged or how many have been lost. >> we don't have an exact number on the structures that were damaged. the exact number of residents in the area that might be
affected i don't know that number. it's a very rural area. lots of ranches. >> and are more resources being brought in tomorrow. i know it's dark, you don't generally fly aircraft at night because it's so dangerous. but how many firefighters are on the line and how many more to you expect to be on the lines tomorrow? >> well, i don't have an exact count of the number of people we have out there now. we have the sonoma napa lake unit. some were at the rocky lake and have been sent from other areas. >> any word finally tonight on a cause. we've been hearing some reports of radio scanner traffic that perhaps this fire started at a marijuana grow operation. do you know anything about that? >> no i don't have any information about that. that would be in the purview of the sheriff. >> captain joe fletcher giving us the very latest on the condition of the jerusalem fire. it is 3,000 acres. slightly more than that.

complaints division, when we have an allegation of a complaint, use of force, we have seen approximately 70% reduction since we've integrated the camera into the department with complaints. that's significant. when you're looking at the footage it certainly is like an eyeball. it can see what the officer is seeing most of the time. >> you have the numbers to back it up. you call it a use of force incident. nose are down. that's good news. how do the officers feel about wearing them. >> in the beginning certainly there was skepticism. any time i think you introduce anything it's something new. >> how many officers wear them when they're out there currently wearing them. >> we have about 661 cameras deployed in our inventory we have a little over 700 cameras. >> okay. >> now, we have all of patrol

>> traffic stops, walking stops. if we go to a call. we're certainly going to record that. we can go to a scene and record the scene as well. >> reporter: they are small cameras. we know what we can do with our cell phone cameras. are you all happy with the quality of the video. have you seen an improvement. >> the actual lens will only capture similar to an eyeball it. will capture what the eyeball will see. they have expanded the view. the first one we had was a little bit more of a narrower view. this one you will see just the elevators doors in the frame. the second round of technology is this particular model you will see how the view is wider. that's important because you see the side of my arm. now you know a human being is standing there. >> how about in the fight time. when you're recording at night. >> you can see also in this particular video we did a demonstration. walking into an office with
office lighting. then we turned the lights off and we walk in, same scene just with the lights off. the lighting which is considered low lighting from the computer screens and also lamp you can still see is there someone in that room. we're certainly moving with the times as technology moves. we're moving with it. >> okay, officer watson with oakland pd thanks for being here. >> thank you for having us. >> one thing to keep in mind those body cameras they are not cheap. they run about $900 a piece. the company that produces them they are actually coming out with a civilian version that will be coming out very soon. developing news tonight out of east san jose after police shot and killed a man. according to police around 6:20 they were called to virginia avenue and south 31st street where they say they found a man who they say had been stab several times. a man ran off when officers arrivedded. they eventually located a man they believed to be the suspect. it's not clear what happened next but police say the officer feared for his life and shot
