9:03 am
our coverage of the fire continues now. we have a reporter at the command center. >> first, the weather is so important to this fire. let's talk to steve paulson. it was so hot, but we are seeing such a change. >> my goodness yes. a lot has changed as you know. i have good news on that front as well. there will be some measurable rain. we had humid windy conditions out of the southeast. that all contributed to it. humidity 80, 90%. we had 40s and 50s for lows this morning. there is still a component of a westerly breeze, but nothing like we saw over the weekend, southeast about 35 that really fueled it. mostly sunny today. another system is approaching them. looks like that system will
9:04 am
usher in some rain. looks like we will see some rain. more later. this morning, there are more firefighters on the front line than ever before. >> ktvu fox 2 news' allie rasmus at the command center. you have been there all morning. you say the fire crews hope the weather will help them fight the flames that have devastated many neighborhoods. >> reporter: that is what they were hoping. the weather conditions were pretty good overnight. this morning take a look. mostly clear skies. they are hoping that will help them get helicopters and aircraft up in the air. we are at the command center for the valley fire at the lake county fairgrounds. really quick, what you are looking at out here live are some of the fire crews coming back from the front lines of the fire. so, there's about 2300 firefighters fighting this fire. 500 more than yesterday. and, the first crews, they work
9:05 am
in 12 and 24 hour shifts. the trucks are coming back from the front lines. meanwhile this morning, we have video to though you from half an hour ago. they were gearing up, getting in their trucks. there are 2800 firefighters fighting the valley fire. they have their briefing at 7:00 this morning to go over their plan to tackle this fire. when that wrapped up, they were on their way. again, they work 12 and 24 hour shift rotations. the valley fire grew by a couple of thousand acres and scorched 67,000 acres. the containment line is north of hidden valley lake. over a thousand structures burned. we don't have any new numbers on that, but the weather helped firefighters overnight. it was cooler and humid. and today, they have blue skies. no fog, that is also going to help them fight this fire from the air.
9:06 am
>> that first night, the second night we had, we had smoke hampering the efforts. now we have a clear morning. hopefully, we can get the aircraft up working directly with the crews on the ground. >> reporter: and cal fire says they have eight helicopters, three air tankers. the only downside with the clear skies is without any cloud cover, it could increase the temperature later today. but they are hoping their ability to fight this fire from the air will help them with that. again, what you see now, the fire trucks you see pulling into the mostly empty lot are some of the crews coming back from the front line. my colleague alex savidge is at the epicenter showing us what things look like. and people are starting to pick up the pieces or at least coming to check on their animals. >> reporter: right, later on today, a lot of people will be returning here to the fire zone to check on their pets and animals left behind as they
9:07 am
basically ran for their lives as the fire closed in. let me show you. these were the horses left behind as this fire closed in. you can only imagine what the horses went through. all around the corral, you see scorched earth here, we are at the animal rescue here on big canyon road in middletown. and i just got off the phone a few minutes ago with the owner of this rescue. she told me that on saturday afternoon, she didn't have a trailer for these horses and the burros. she was forced to leave them here as the fire closed in on her rescue. yesterday, we took some video. we happened to be dropping by. we took video of some caring workers who took a few moments to give water and apples to the horses. there is no telling how long they went without getting fed and watered. once we posted that video online, there was unbelievable outpouring for the community. many offering to care for the
9:08 am
horses. five horses and two burros. i put it on my facebook page. that the where the owner of this animal rescue facility saw the video. she saw it online and said she was in tears when she watched the video and realized her horses had survived the fire. >> i was crying. i thought they were dead. i couldn't get through to anybody. and ... i called everybody i could possibly think of that were not from there. so i don't have a lot of connections. and so, i just kept persistent and i got ahold of cal fire and the sheriff's department and asked if somebody could go out there. >> reporter: and, quinn tells me that apparently someone may have picked up a few of the animals and possibly taken them somewhere. but, she is still trying to
9:09 am
sort it all out and figure out where the horses have been taken to. but, some of them are still here at the rescue this morning. she is trying to figure out where they are. she is hoping to be escorted by sheriffs deputies into the fire zone later on today to pick up the animals and obviously check and see how they are doing. she told me she greatly appreciates the pg&e workers who stopped the feed the animals and other neighbors who were caring for the horses while she was evacuated. by the way, as we bring you back out here to a live picture, this is the home where quinn was living right next to the rescue operation that she was running up here in middletown. as you can well see, like so many other homes in this area, it was leveled by the fire. she has no home to come home to. but she was grateful that her horses survived this fire. we will send it back to you. >> incredible pictures alex savidge. thank you. time is now 9:09.
9:10 am
organized rescue groups are helping pets. dogs, cats, goats, pigs. some of the animals left behind when their owners fled the flames. volunteers are taking food and water to the animals. they are mostly scared and they are hungry so you can't count on the animals being happy to see them. but even when they are growling at them and trying to run away, their work is gratifying. >> every place we get is one more animal that is going to see it through another day. every house we finish, yay, it's a celebration. >> throws in a yay there. some of the animals like this horse here was hurt. he was hurt jumping over a fence trying to get away from the fire. rescuers will be looking for more injured and distressed animals. for as long as people are forced to stay out of the fire zone. now, pg&e is busy. they have more than 200 workers fanned out across the fire zone making repairs and trying to get the power back on.
9:11 am

9:35 am
think about your neighbors, maybe people who might need help. often people ask us oh gosh, why do you cover so many horrible stories? this is one of the reasons why. we all learn from this. we learn wow, do i have a proper plan in place? what would i grab? maybe you keep those things handy. and think of the people around you who might need help. someone with some little kids or grandma watching kids. >> this could be after an earthquake, this could be after the floods in los angeles we are seeing. it is always good to have that plan. >> right. >> and pam, i told you, i have covered wild fires, several. and a wild fire is the one time i thought i would not make it out of a story. it moves so fast, it is so ferocious. i really thought i was dead that day. >> reporter: right now, in particular with the drought conditions, it is so dry and so many areas that is quickly going to fuel a fire. and then also, we have been talking about floods. if we get a big el niño winter rain, all these fire areas, all the fires in lake county, we are going to see a lot of

his apartments are like no, he really insists. >> reporter: jackson took a picture with the boy. he wrote a message on the back of it and said thank you. he says he wants to link up with that young man again to thank him in person. well, it was an exciting thrilling sight for whale watchers but a real close call for two kayakers in the monterrey bay. >> oh! >> i got him. i got him on video. >> can you imagine that? over you? a whale watcher captured this video saturday. a humpback whale jumping out of the water knocking over two kayakers that tried to get too close to him. the kayakers were not hurt. scientists with the national marine sanctuary says whales can weigh up to 80,000 tons. the kayak company have canceled their whale-watching tour for
9:42 am
the foreseeable future. we know the bay area is the epicenter of the food boom. but so many people here in the bay area limit what is considered a food desert meaning what they don't have access to fresh produce and other nourishing foods. up next, celebrity chef tyler florence is in the studio talking about how you can help change that. >> hundreds of people are here at the cal palace in daily city for their shot at being the next american idol. we will introduce you to some of this year's competitors. and, we will also tell you if you missed this audition, how you can still get in on time. are more likely to have a to frsuccessful future.e born talking and reading to children in their first years has a huge impact on what they do with the rest of their lives. the fewer words they hear, the greater their chances of dropping out of school

>> there is is a campaign under way by naked juice and whole. way to help people who live in food deserts. this means you don't have this on your counter. fresh healthy affordable food. we have a map here showing how many people in our area live in food deserts. those are the green areas marked all around the bay. areas close to the east bay, san leandro. san francisco, daly city, oakland. san francisco itself has some 58,000 people living miles away from fresh healthy food. that works out to about one in every 14 people. joining me now with more on the campaign that san francisco is advocating for. chef florence. >> so good to see you. >> i love your mission. i really do. >> thank you very much. i think, you know, cooking in
9:46 am
the kitchen starts with nutrition and it starts with a better selection of produce. there are almost 58,000 people in the bay area that live in what is considered food deserts right? that is calculated by how many people live close to a grocery store right? and there are areas in the bay area where there is one grocery store for 20,000 people. so you can imagine how much produce is not there and how many opportunities that families could possibly have to do the right thing and really get some great nutrition on the table. that is why i'm partnering up with naked juice and wholesome way. we are starting a campaign where naked juice will donate 10 pounds of produce for every selfie you take. everybody likes to take selfies. so if you grab a piece of fresh produce and take a selfie of yourself, tag a friend if you want to. but tag it drink good do good. for each one, naked juice will
