surprised to see their condo still standing. >> this is the pool. there were solar panels there and a fence, and this -- and the ping-pong table was burned. i don't know how it got there and left ours alone. there's very mixed emotions. it's relief, and then it's survivor guilt. >> many of her neighbors' homes were gutted in the fire, and many of the roads in her neighborhood are still closed as caltran crews work to clear the debris. in santa rosa there was a similar scene. thousands of evacuees went back home to see the damage, and it was emotional. >> i hope that everybody will just have the strength and get through the hard part and start looking towards the spring. >> the evacuation order was lifted after several positive developments in that fire zone. the containment lines are growing. theth wither is getting better. and there are more firefighters on the ground, putting out those hot spots.

westbound bay bridge. . let's bring steve in with today's forecast. >> no fog out there whatsoever. it will be a warm day today, warmest day of the week by far. temperatures could push upper 80s to near 90 for some. good news is the red flag warning has expired. you'll get teens on the relative humidity. we're already seeing that at the las peak. but the wind is north to northeasters but tailing off. not anything like we saw a week ago or on the weekend as well. the air quality slowly improving, even though it's some unhealthy levels. we're not up there in the pink category, which we were last week, which was off the chart, according to some at the bay area air quality. they had never seen that before. so it is getting better, a little bit. forecast, hazy skies. temperatures will be 40s to start off with, 70s, going for a high of 87. it will be pretty warm. we'll see that tail off quick. high clouds coming from the west, southwest. it will be warm for everybody, including the coast. no fog to deal with. after to, temperatures will

stuff. >> are you're use? >> reporter: berkeley firefighter mike sh,ken shot the video and added captions. >> for the three of us who were on that fire engine that day on october 9th, that was the biggest incident any of us had ever responded to. >> reporter: they arrived at a kmart parking lot only to find the store on fire, not stopping because of buildings that involved in flames, they say, is already lost. >> is that a gas station there. >> i can feel the heat. can you feel that? . >> oh my goodness. >> wow, it is blowing out there. >> reporter: firefighters admitting they got off easy as the fire rapidly spread. than they came across a housing subdivision, the coffee park neighborhood of santa rosa burned to the ground, hundreds of homes gone. >> this is like a bomb went off. >> it's still a little hard for all of us to sort of
wrap our minds around, the fact that thousands and thousands of homes are burned, you know, within i mean, moments. >> reporter: they say they were searching for something they could save. at one point, they worried about falling power lines, then thousands of rounds of ammunition cooking off in the difference from a sporting goods store. using chain saws to cut through fences and trees to gain access, falling back on their training, hosing down what they could, as the fire jumped from house to house. their focus, breaking its forward momentum, and with the winds shifting by late morning, they saved 30 homes. >> absolutely heart-breaking. i mean, absolutely heart- breaking. those are, you know, people's homes. their family is probably the most important, most special thing for them. >> reporter: ktvu fox news. time is now 5:25. getting the power back on for many pg&e customers

always. let's check in with steve. the forecast for the fire fighting a very important aspect. >> after today it will improve. >> okay. >> maybe some rain. >> maybe some rain. still looking for rain. >> thursday night, friday. >> they'll take anything. >> better than the cooler temps and the higher humidity. at least the breeze tails off. it will be north or offshore easterly. and it's going to be warm, no doubt about it. mid-and upper 80s. dry conditions. some of the higher investigations, 10%, relative humidity. 0% later today. winds coming up from the west southwest. it will be warmer today. the first system to come down from the north is usually a little tricky here, because it has to breakthrough a ridge of high pressure. all signs point toward that happening end of the week. i don't think there will be much south of napa. as you move north, santa rosa, cloverdale, clear lake 17, ucaya 3rd.
. it could go up, go down a bit. we have 4 days to go. i like the theme, and the models are in sync. the air quality is better. still not great, but it is better. last week it was awful. we are seeing improvement in that. still an easterly breeze or northeast. atlas peak, 18%, northeast at 10. there's a northerly or northeast component for just about anybody. 40s, 0s, and 6 0s. if you have an off-shore breeze, it's pretty warm. if you don't, it's very cold. one observation reporting in napa at 47. cloverdal, though, is 58. winds are 42. there's your high clouds coming in from the west, southwest. waiting for a system to dig in from the gulf of alaska. we're still 4 days away. . all right. sal? . >> traffic is going to be busy if you are driving on the commute here on 80
westbound. vacaville, fairfield, vallejo. highway 37 is getting slow on the way over to marin county. then we have traffic on 80 westbound, which is slow. parts of richmond, san pablo does get better by the time you reach the berkeley area. at the bay bridge, the metering lights went on early. we had a big back up at the toll plaza. let's go back to the desk. >> as we have been telling you earlier, firefighters are making some progress against the wine country wildfires. >> some are going back to see some of the damage for themselves. . >> reporter: we are seeing improving conditions up here as crews try to gain some ground on these fires. they are making quite a bit of progress. not seeing winds like we've seen over the past week or so. some people are going home. you have entire neighborhoods that remain shut down, such as this one here.
this is on the east end of the city of sonoma itself. we are at a check point here. that's at east napa street and fourth street here. and everyone east of this area all the way up into those foothill, they are still not allowed to return to their homes, because the fire was pretty active in this area over the weekend. this complex of fires that is impacting the sonoma valley includes the nuns fire. it's posing one of the biggest threats now. this fire really flared up over the weekend, especially saturday morning when we had some very strong wind gusts in this area. a number of homes were burned on the east side of sonoma before those winds eventually calmed down and firefighters were able to get a handle on things. while evacuation orders remain in place for certain parts of sonoma itself and some of the surrounding communities, elsewhere people are beginning to return home. in the larkville community just north of santa rosa, evacuees were allowed back into that burn zone
yesterday. some were lucky enough to find their homes still standing. >> thankful. i'm thankful. i'm fortunate. i know a lot of people lost a lot of loss of life. i'm fortunate to be back, and everything's here. >> reporter: evacuation orders also lifted for the city of calustoga itself, where crews obviously are feeling a bit more confident about that fire not impacting the city of calustoga itself. other communities do remain threatened, and that includes kenwood, along highway 12, also oakmont village, a large retirement community south and east of the city of santa rosa. also here in the city of sonoma where we are this morning. mandatory evacuation orders remain in place for a number of neighborhoods on the east and also the north side of town here as they try to get a handle on the nuns fire, which at last check, was 40% contained. >> and alex, you were up there
all week and over the weekend as well. how does it feel now? what was it -- how does it look as far as how different it is from that drive up to where you are and then around the area? >> reporter: yeah. in terms of the drive up here this morning, it was pretty quiet. you didn't see a whole lot of people on the road, and it's sort of a quiet feeling here in this neighborhood. it's early in the morning. here in this part of sonoma, it's definitely quiet. it's definitely dark. not sure you can tell down there. the power is still out here in these neighborhoods on the east side of town. not a whole lot of activity, and the good news is -- the really good news is the other mornings when we arrived here in sonoma, the past few mornings, we would see that orange glow over there. a lot of times some active flame over in those hills on the east end of town. it's completely dark up in those hills. that means this fire has really sort of laid down, and is -- we have calmer
conditions, and crews, in all likelihood, are making a whole lot of headway up there as they try to get more containment. >> and you don't have the mask near you. what's the air like up there. >> reporter: you know, the credibility of smoke is always sort of lingering around here. it's certainly not -- nothing like overwhelming smoke in this area. so we're good. >> better conditions. thank you. >> reporter: certainly. time is now 5:36. time today, pg&e hops to get the power back on for almost every home and business that lost power during the wildfires. three hundred thousands people lost power when the huge wildfires hit napa and sonoma counties. crews have been working around the clock since then to get the lights back on. but more than 22,000 are still without gas or electricity in those two counties this morning. the goal is to have the power back to everybody before the end of this day.
well many people are returning home for the first time since the fires started, and people who live up in calustoga were let back in yesterday, but they are still being told to remain on high alert with an active fire still miles away from them. the first stop for many people was the grocery store, and people we spoke to say they're just glad to be back home. >> yeah. we're back. we're back. >> it feels amazing to be back. i have to say, when we pulled into town and saw the cops there with signs that said "welcome back," we all broke out into cheers. it was so incredibly sweet. >> they say they are so thankful for the first responders who saved their homes. our time is now 5:37. in santa rosa an overnight curfew still in effect to prevent looting. >> the sonoma county sheriff's office released this image of items found on three suspects they say were up to no good. deputies on patrols said the suspects were acting suspiciously. they said they later found the suspects with items
that include black gloves, knives, hypodermic needles, and zip ties. the suspects are a 21-year-old man from san rafael, a 32-year-old oakland man, and a 26-year-old san francisco woman. they were arrested for outstanding warrants, and several drug violations. in santa rosa, authorities say a suspected looter was arrested saturday. they released these photos of items found on the suspect who who was near an evacuation zone. anthony hadwell was arrested near cleveland avenue and industrial drive just off highway 101. authorities say they found items that may have been stolen from nearby homes, items including a pell let gun, jewelry, cell phone, other valuables. police say hatpool is a trance ingredient. he is facing charges that include felony grand theft during an emergency, possession of a concealed weapon, and possession of drug paraphernalia. it's now 5:38, and police officers from all over

want to check in with sal. any problem spots out there, sal? . >> there are a few, pam. but in general, the morning commute is beginning to kind of fill in, if you will. just the normal slow traffic, i think, is going to be what slows you down the most. , for example. if you're driving in from tracy to atmont pass, 205 and highway 80 already slow. highway 4 is slow out if the livermore area. 680 is getting a little slow, but not terribly slow. out of pleasantton heading south toward the sonol grade. this morning this is a look at interstate 880. traffic in both directions is moving along okay. once you get to the bay bridge, the metering lights went on a little early. not sure why, but we do have a lot of people who are up and at úem this morning early on a monday morning. it's 5:03. let's bring steve in on today's forecast. >> can i vent a little bit? . >> yes, sir. >> you know the golf fell exit? . >> yes, sir >> sometimes it takes longer to get through that and over market than it does to get
over the bridge. >> yes. you just have to sit there and then you get off on city street. it's still slow, and make the turn. >> i know you know it. thank you for listening. all right. we have good news today. the red flag is expired, but the humidity is still low. some of the elevations will with be in the teens. this will be the warmest day by far. then the wind will start to tail off. it will be in the 80s for many, even on the coast. a few wins coming from the west, southwest. not a big deal. they'll be drifting across. then the temps will start to take the plunge. not so much on tuesday. they will be cooler tuesday, but wednesday, thursday for sure. looks like right now rain is on the way for late thursday into friday. by far the heaviest amounts will be from about santa rosa, napa, calustoga north. this is the gfs. i buy into it for now. you can see cloverdale, lake port, quarter of an
inch. ucaya. this looks about right based on what i'm seeing so far. let's hope it materializes, because we need it. air quality is better. still not the greatest. at least better than it was last week when it was just awful. we had levels not seen before. it's still high, but nothing like what we saw. northeast, northeast, north, north, northeast. temperatures are in the 40s for many, but there's still that slight off-shore breeze. 40s, 50s, 60s on your temps. there are a few 30s. look at b,dega bay at 67. graden is at 37. incredible difference. kelsea 42, cloverdale. 57. one observation at napa reporting at 47. 41ucaya. 20s and 30s around lake tahoe, truckee at 23. watch the clouds coming in from the west, southwest. we are watching a system to dig in, but not until after midweek, coming from the gulf of alaska. looks like a one and done. we'll take it for now. a few mid-and upper 8 0s.
