minute delay. once you make it past those metering lights it looks good on that span into san francisco. we're also looking at a commute on interstate 880 that is not too bad passing the coliseum north and southbound. southbound i want to show you the maps a little bit farther south you'll see some slowing in hayward and part of union city. hasn't been all that bad. in the south bay northbound 101, we had a couple of different crashes reported in the area of de la cruz and the area of trimmable road. it could be the same crash. there was also a crash reported southbound 101 near marsh road. a couple of different items that. is not reportedly causing any slow traffic. the road sensors show that commute from san mateo to palo alto to be in good shape at this hour. let's go back to the desk. more than a dozen wildfires are burning all across california. look at this map. the fires are stretching from humboldt county to the blue cut fire burning out of control in san bernardino county.
6:33 am
that's a lot. more than 80,000 people there in san bernardino have been ordered to evacuate. and north of the bay area, the clayton fire is still burning this morning in lake county, but cal fire just a little while ago, containment has gone from 35% to 40%. that's better news. ktvu's alex savidge live in lake county this morning, some people are being allowed to go back home, while others alex, they still have to wait. >> reporter: yeah, a will the of evacuees of people who, especially who evacuated here from the town of lower lake, and they were forced out by the flames late in the day on sunday. they are going to have to wait quite a bit longer, potentially until they can get back into this area. we're in the middle of the fire zone, and you can see the destruction, just whole blocks that were leveled by this fire. there's still a lot of hazards here, downed power lines, downed trees in this area, and you also have all of these burned out areas. there are potential hot spots
6:34 am
that could reignite so fire crews keeping an eye on that. a short time ago i talked with the couple that lives at this home or lived, i should say, at this home here on daily place, and obviously they have found out that their home is gone. they've been staying in the shelter, but they want to get back in here to try to see what they can salvage from this home and also find their missing cats, and i talked with the man who was living here with his girlfriend. he described for me just how fast this fire raced through here on sunday. >> flames, you know, they came. they were roaring and you didn't have a chance. fire is something don't reckon with. it will take everything from you, you know, if you ain't -- if there's a fire, get out because you might not make it out. it happens so quick. >> reporter: now late yesterday about 4,000 people who evacuated from the clear lake area were allowed to return to their homes, but that's a goodies tans away good distance
6:35 am
away from here. they are gaining the upper hand, 40% containment on this fire, and last tally from cal fire is that they believe 175 homes and businesses, many of them in downtown lower lake have been destroyed by the fire. but, again, 40% containment. crews say they may be able to get the upper hand on this fire by sunday, and obviously they're hoping the weather conditions will continue to cooperate in this area. >> before you go, i know it's early, any wind out there to speak of this morning? >> reporter: none whatsoever. very calm conditions today, but obviously we know how things change. in terms of the temperature and also the winds as we move throughout the day. we'll have to wait and see. they feel pretty confident. they've been adding containment lines, especially overnight each of the last few days, so i think cal fire is feeling
6:36 am
