6:03 am
late in the day on sunday. all that is left is just the -- again, we are learning this morning that authorities have arrested a suspected arsonist accused of setting the clayton fire and causing so much destruction and heartache. and there, you can hear it. a crowd of evacuees. they have erupted in cheers last night during the community meeting after the county sheriff and the cal fire chief told everyone in attendance. that the 40-year-old had been arrested and accused of setting the clayton fire. and it quickly exploded in size on sunday and caused so much devastation. from hereby clearlake. he is accused of is thing other fires during the past year. so far, the latest talley from cal fire. they say at least 175 homes and

6:05 am
as far as evacuees go, several thousand people still saying in nearby shelters, there is no word yet on when those folks might be able to return to their homes here within the fire zone, it is still just too dangerous for them to come back in. as fort fire itself, pam, the latest figures we have, 4000 acres burned and the frazil officially just 5% contained. we do expect to get some new updated containment numbers at some point later on today from cal fire. >> that sounds good. and hearing from one of our viewers, actually, and letting me know where people can help and she says she is up in the middle june town area. i'm going to put that -- middletown area. they said gift cards are the best thing because they don't really have any place to store stuff, but they will need help building their lives again. >> there are so many people. they have reached out to you and all of us trying to figure out how they can help. obviously, one way is to make a donation if
6:06 am

forecast high. humidity goes up. maybe allison will give us an update on the weather conditions. it was very calm yesterday morning. the wind picks up still near 100. we do have low clouds in the mix here. cool to mild to warm to hot. a little warmer for inland temperatures really probably not that much. it is cooler friday and into the weekend for those away from the coast. i don't see much change by fog. low clouds keeping temperatures below average. they are running a little bit below. near average to above. northerly oakland airport. and 2025. still decent. west at napa. west/southwest. 54 at fairfield. 52. 50 from santa rosa. and 50. half moon bay, 51. yet 60. 61. 62 palo alto. mountainview over the san jose. and mill valley is at 49. bodega bay is at 49. and 51 petaluma. so a little cooler in the north

bay. 43. 57 ukiah and sacramento around lake tahoe, 40s and 50s. the key is this low that is coming in might -- which has been a summer of no thunderstorm activity at all. that might pick up. it is also giving us a little drizzle. that low will continue to drop southward, over the sierra and southern california where it has been hot down there. that might give some thunderstorm activity to the mountains. 60s to 100s. if you are well inland. by the coast and the bay, 60s and 7 0ás. these temperatures are running below average near the water's edge. santa rosa and san jose are close to average. east bay temperatures are running above. i don't think that has changed much since about july to be honest with you. a little cooler inland friday and saturday. >> thank you, you bet. time is 6:20. a new honor. the ceremony set for today on treasure island honoring the gay rights activist. >> and ditching obamacare. the big announcement that could affect

6:34 am
building containment lines around it. a lot of firefighters, not only on the ground, but also last night or yesterday afternoon, we hit this fire hard with our aircraft dropping fire retar dent, hitting hotspots with helicopters even though there was just very little flames yesterday and one little area of a hotspot. we wanted to really get a good line around that so it does not have the potential to grow over the next couple of days. >> what about the conditions today? how does it look for the firefight? >> we're going to experience very similar conditions as we have had the last couple of days. warm temperatures, humidity in the teens, and some winds. the one piece shows how hard we worked was the fact that we still had winds when we were able to hold back the fire. we were again hoping that when those winds do pick up we'll be able to keep this fire out of lower lake, keep it out of clear lake. the weather just this last several days ask working against us. >> i just have to ask you because in arrest was made and we are certainly hearing from so many of our viewers. we are just heartbroken. they can't

6:38 am
police will look to see if there is any sort of connection. that tends to be the case when the victims slow up at the hospital rather than calling 911. right now, police have not released any sort of suspect description. we have reached out to them to get an update on this case. last we heard, no arrests have been made as of this morning. >> we'll keep checking back. a man in freemont has been sentenced now with connection of the case of road rage at half moon may. the 44-year-old was served one year of probation for pepper spraying a family on highway 1 and highway 92 at half moon bay. it happened last october in traffic during a half moon bay festival. now, he pled no contest to one misdemeanor account of disturbing the peace. prosecutors say he got into an argument with a family after he tried to cut in front of their car. he sprayed pepper spray through an open window. he is due to go back to doubter next
