week. the national forest service is asking the public for help in finding the cause of a wildfire burning in southern california. officials say the holcomb fire has burned 1200 acres. containment remains just 10 percent with more than 1000 firefighters on the scene battling the flames. crews are dealing with heavy smoke. investigators are asking anyone who is in the area of the pacific crest trail from last saturday night to monday afternoon to give them a call. let's bring in chief meteorologist bill martin right now, this is it going to heat up. maybe even up to 108. >> i think 107 is the official forecast tie. when we forecast for areas, we forecast 5 feet off the ground out of the sun and over grass or dirt or something be nine. in your backyard on your concrete. it's easily going to be if you are in antioch. it's usually 110 degrees at 5 feet above the surface.
6:48 pm
you'll find 110 in your backyard. i was just reading some stuff about the phoenix heat down there. palm springs did three days of 115 degrees heat and that was the all-time record for number of 115 plus days, but they were talking about the concrete in phoenix. i was saying our concrete tomorrow and livermore about 140 degrees, so your pets. they are saying phoenix, the concrete is reaching temperatures of 164 degrees. yeah, 164 degrees right at the surface of the concrete. you know, when we talk about heat, even these temperatures here, these temperatures are taken in proven locations. usually the airports, oftentimes like sfo and oakland, but in your backyard or in your environment if you are around a lot of rock or dirt or you are around a lot of grass, you would be less. so temperatures are funny. you want to go, it's exact.
6:49 pm
it's not really. we use sfo for the official san francisco numbers. in your backyard, it could be different. tomorrow as you go back out, there go the numbers. up to maybe 110. would be hard to do. right on the eastern edges of the valley. it's a hot day. probably the hottest day. i think it's going to be the hottest day of the year. if not, it's the top two. 107 in vacaville tomorrow, 107 fairfield. that's an official number 4 pittsburgh right there where we keep temperatures at the fire station, but in your backyard if you are around a bunch of blacktop, for instance, much hotter. temperatures are a funny thing. the record high in san francisco is 92. a block away depending where you are, it could be 95. hottest day, it's hot in the western united states.

sounds like derek car is about to become a very wealthy man. >> from wealthy to wealthier. he had given the raiders a deadline. i want to get the contract situation done before training camp starts in july, and it looks like they are ahead of schedule. at least the schedule that derek car figure out for himself. he was voted by his peers the 11th best player in the nfl. he may soon be, in fact, by the end of the week, the highest- paid player in the nfl. mega contract. they have said to be finalizing the language that could pay him some $25 million a year.
6:54 pm
the highest-paid player right now with the andrew luck. stanford education did him well. he's making $24.6 million. as i say, the deal could be completed by the end of the week. derek tweeted this out, nothing done yet. trust me, however, you'll be the first to hear. i trust that that means the fans and we in the media. meantime, san francisco giants looking to make it to in a row before them that does constitute a winning streak down in atlanta. the second game in the role. them taking the lead in this game, and they are none the happier for it. at least they are all braves fans. you know what, it looks like they have their prayers come true. down the right-field line. he got himself a triple and hunter who had a single earlier in the inning comes into score.
6:55 pm
matt adams would get a home run. just a couple minutes ago, as a matter of fact. the braves are leading that came to-1. meantime, this is a thing that all pictures want, and that the no-hitter and it almost happened. the great right-hander for the washington nationals. look at this. eighth inning, one out, and this is the first pitch right back to him. you could see his frustration. you have to call that a hit. then he kind of came unglued. he throws a wild pitch. his concentration affected big time. incomes the tie and run for the marlins. 1-1, and it doesn't get any better. two pages later, he and carlos stanton with a shot to right. one run comes in and the second run, gordon is cut down at the plate. the trail to-1 in the bottom of the ninth inning. rather, the top of the ninth.
6:56 pm
ramos is called out on that pitch right there. not a happy man. but after having a no-hitter through eight and a third innings, he loses that and the ballgame. huge night in the world of hockey. the nhl, they have in vegas the team expansion draft to where they are going to fill out the roster of the golden knights, the team that will take them. and then the awards ceremony. that's brent burns. hoping he would wear his false teeth tonight in accepting the award as the norris trophy winner, best defenseman in the league. as you get a semi close-up of him, you'll see that he did not wear his. >> i just want to thank my teammates. without them, this is impossible. they put up a lot yelling for me and getting me to talk all night. for them, thank you.
6:57 pm
thanks for everything. fun place to go every day with you guys. >> he informs me he was mistaken for a pirate. >> meanwhile, the expansion draft, the sharks lose the defenseman that's been around the block a few times. this will be the sixth. he'll fill out the vegas golden knights roster. i, for one, will be missing to say david's uncle. meantime, check this out. so far it's early in the evening. this is our best defensive play of the day. take a look at matt carpenter popping one down the right- field line. leaping into the corner. that is a very difficult play right there for the phillies and the phillies are leading that game 3-0. that's the sporting life at this hour. more to come.

(chuckles) 'cause, you see, there's only one electron in a hydrogen atom. best and brightest, my sweet patootie. all right, let's begin. show of hands, who here is familiar with the concept of topological insulators? don't kid yourselves. i found another tweet from a student at sheldon's lecture.
