happened here. what has your investigation yielded so far about what happened last night? >> late last night we got reports of a leak on contra costa boulevard so crews came out and in the wee hours last night they found a 12-inch pipe that had broken and so they've been working since the early morning to get that pipe excavated and to start repairs. >> any idea on the timeline for that repair? it's a big job. i know you're just now getting to it. is there even an estimation on how long this might take? >> they'll have to replace about ten feet of pipe and then they'll have to go through and repave and fill the hole. all doing that at the same time with other gas lines and other utilities in the area so they're not disturbing those as well. so we're anticipating construction is going to go at least through today, probably into tomorrow. i don't have an exact estimate at this time. >> customers affected at this time, some who are without water. >> correct. primarily businesses in the
9:34 am
area. we're working with them in order to if we can top line them to get them service we will. otherwise they might be out of water for a bit of time. >> one of the last big questions is that holiday parade the 4th of july parade. the route has it coming down contra costa boulevard. are you in communication with pleasant hill to figure out how this might affect that parade. >> absolutely. we're working closely with the city to figure out what may be impacted for the parade on monday. hopefully we'll have the paving done but we're working closely with them to get notification out. >> thank you for joining us this morning. so there you have it. at least through today, possibly into tomorrow. still looking at the possible impact this could have on that 4th of july parade. but, again, you can see a lot of work going on right now by the contra costa water district workers as well as pg&e crews. there are some businesses in the area that don't have power. trying to determine exactly how that happened, whether the
9:35 am
power was shut down intentionally to make sure there was no danger to anybody in the area, weather the water impacted the power. a lot of questions and work to go until we can get this road back open again. >> i know that's a busy road, are you seeing any kind of back ups on the side streets or anyone trying to -- struggling to get around it from your vantage point? >> you know, jennifer had a really good point. she said might be as unfortunate as this is it might be fortunate this was a holiday weekend. seems like there's been relatively light traffic. the biggest impact we've seen is that we have seen that that power outage is affecting a traffic light in the area. we have seen a couple of near accidents as vehicles have approached this traffic light not knowing that the power was out. we have seen a couple of sudden stops at the last minute. >> take it slow out there. christien kafton, thanks. developing this morning about a dozen wildfires are
9:36 am
burning across the state. check out this map. fires burned a total of more than 60,000 acres. thousands of firefighters are working to put the fires out. one of the most stubborn fires is in the el dorado national forest. that fire has burned more than 3200 acres. it started on tuesday and right now it is only about 12% contained. some evacuation orders are still in effect. so far no homes or buildings have burned. there are at least two fires burning in kern county. some people have been told to evacuate. right now that fire has zero containment. the other wildfire has burned more than 48,000 acres. that fire is now about 85% contained. firefighters work to put -- you can see a lot of smoke
9:37 am
coming from that one. it started shortly before 7:00. firefighters say it burned about 13 acres. fortunately no one was hurt. >> the threat of wildfires could remain high through august. summer rains may not be as consistent as usual this year. the chance of a significant fire is also high because of the drought as well as dried grass and trees. the high fire risk is expected to go down in september. new on this saturday morning we're learning more about the victim of this unprovoked stabbing attack. some new pictures of 21-year- old adam lucero. according to the paper he had just graduated from cal poly san luis abisbo with a business degree. the paper reports the attack apparently happened after he got up to use the restroom. his alleged attacker reportedly followed him into the bathroom and then back into the theater, sitting right behind him and then later stabbed him multiple
9:38 am
times. lucero's brother telling ktvu why he believes his brother is still alive. >> he said i punched the guy. i fought back. i think that was what saved his life. i think by him fighting back it wasn't an easy attack any more and the guy just took off and left. >> police are trying to determine if hart is also responsible for a deadly stabbing on monday also in santa rosa. hart is homeless and had recently moved to the bay area from baltimore. meanwhile lucero's family reports he remains heavily sedated. they have set up a go fund me page to help cover medical expenses. we have a link to that page under the web links tab at our website. governor jerry brown signed six gun control measures but he vetoed five others. bills that will become law include background checks for ammunition sales and a requirement that people turn in high capacity magazines.
9:39 am
yesterday he also approved a ban on new guns with so-called bullet buttons that allow ammunition magazines will be quickly switched out. on the other hand the governor vetoed a requirement to register home made guns and to report lost or stolen weapons to authorities. it's the 4th of july weekend. you're still trying to figure out what to cook? how about getting your kids involved. we have healthy and easy ideas for you coming up next. and we're also live at the marin county fair. a look at fun you can have this weekend and what makes it the healthier fair on earth.
