5:11 pm
>> reporter: well, it was actually well before that. they knew these guys were from oakland. they knew it before the pursuit began. they had been following them. los angeles police saying if you're a member of an oakland gang coming down to los angeles to do damage to people's cars, don't do it. three guys from oakland now in custody for doing just that. >> up to -- whoa, cutting back the other way. almost hit another car. >> reporter: it was a terrifying pursuit, especially if you were driving on the freeway when the black sedan was weaving in and out, evadfre flat tire on the left rear side. >> reporter: it started in mid- wilshire, landed on the 405 and 101 freeways. speeds were well in excess of 100 miles an hour. this wasn't your everyday
5:12 pm

5:14 pm
pursuit l.a.p.d. says stay in oakland. fox two news, backs to you. >> that is an incredible pursuit. it's incredible nobody was injured in that. can't keep anything in your car. and hopefully they will stop going up and down the state. thanks so much for that report. crazy video there. the city of santa rosa is slowly rising from the ashes of the fire nearly two years ago. block after block was leveled. 1300 homes in all looking like this. now as people return to do business -- as people return, their businesses are also returning to the area. a neighborhood where a return to unless is now being found among local pubs in that area. >> reporter: long before this neighborhood burned down, people did things that everybody does. they went to their favorite places. and pubs are not the least of them. people tend to be very loyal to
5:15 pm
favorite -- their favorite pub, which is exactly why we went on a pub crawl. here, three pubs, themselves almost consumed by the fire, are the moonlight, now and -- brewing companies. many of their regular customers, many of whom lost their homes, had to find housing elsewhere. >> it was definitely a hit. something we weren't prepared for. especially people that work paycheck to paycheck. >> reporter: the customers are returning to places where everyone knows their name. >> it's true, you know. i know almost everybody's name in here when they come in the door. it's kind of fun. it's exciting for everyone else. >> probably the best aspect we've seen is have people that were regulars that we didn't see for maybe almost a year, maybe once in between that area, and now they show back up and they're like we moved into our house last night. >> i don't notice any new
5:16 pm
faces, but i see a lot of older friends in here now. people that had to go a little bit away while their houses were rebuilt. >> they're lebuild more of a relationship with their contractors over a pint of beer. >> it was a great gathering place after the fire. everybody came here to regroup, get information, how can we help out. >> everybody was affected one day. and i think that really, really did bring people together. >> i love it. great people, great music. bring your animals. just a great vibe. >> very much so. i mean, a pub is literally a public place to gather and conversate and try to let go and really let the outside world kind of melt away. also just supporting the local businesses was very important.
5:17 pm
>> reporter: now, the other thing that's important here is there is still plenty -- and i do mean plenty of empty lots that are here that need to be rebuilt, maybe rebuilt or not. those that will be rebuilt, that means a lot more pub hellos are in in order. >> cheers to the people who are recovering right now. thank you so much. as offed it, people now have another two-wheel option to get around san francisco. lyft started rolling out electric bikes after the city issued the company an interim permit. they will be named bay wheels. one benefit for riders is you don't have to return these bikes to a station. another benefit, a big one, the electric assist makes riding san francisco's hills a lot easier. >> san francisco is full of hills, so it's one of the
5:18 pm
challenges to be unmotorrized. trying to get these heavy bikes up a hill was always a bit of a challenge. i'm looking forward to see it. >> there he goes. right now lyft is suing san francisco to keep the rights to have bikes in the city. they hit the streets in san jose last week. we want to go back out to the developing news we've been following. major traffic delays in the east bay. a large pot hole on interstate 880 has forced the closure of several lanes in downtown oakland. we're taking a live look here where you see a caltrans worker is down in the pot hole working on the repairs. the back up is stretching for miles. hopefully we can show you a bit of the back up. we talked to henry lee earlier on in the broadcast. he said it won't be maybe 2 to 3 hours before they start to reopen several of those lanes. you see that back up now.
5:19 pm
that is incredible during the friday evening commute. it's not looking good. it's going to be a while before they open that stretch of roadway there on 880. pack your patience. if you have family members in traffic on 880, give them a call. might be a good time to catch up with friends. >> try to use 580 as well if you need to get further south. a brutal heat wave will scorch more than half the country this weekend. while the worst is yet to come, kids and adults are already seeking relief, jumping through sprinklers and hitting the pools. 195million people across 34 states are now under heat alerts. officials warning them to limit their time outdoors and stay hydrated. all the heat waves potentially dangerous. >> we have not seen temperatures like this in at least 7 years.
5:20 pm
we haven't seen this many concentrated hot days in a long time. take this seriously. >> in areas along the east coast, temperatures that feel like 110 degrees. they have humidity there. so it feels even worse. the national weather service has a number of a record highs are likely to happen this weekend. let's bring in mark now. i know with the heat index and humidity on the east coast, that 110 can feel like 118. >> exactly. growing up here in the bay area, you hear it's a dry heat here. never understood that. >> oh, when you go back to the east coast, you'll know what the difference is. >> traveling last month and it just -- feeling that is completely different story. >> can't stop sweating. this. is the dangerous -- any major heat event is dangerous. when you factor that humidity. as you know, it's a completely -- brings it up to another level. here's a look at some of the
5:21 pm
current temperatures across parts of the country. minneapolis in the mid-90s. washington, d.c., 92 degrees and that heat will persist and even build into the weekend. for us though, you can embrace the low clouds and fog if you like the cooler weather pattern out there. we had clearing today near portions of the coastline this. is responsible for clears even for the entire city of san francisco. but that cloud deck is getting its act together just off shore and pushing back into the bay eventually as we head into the overnight hours. san jose, 81 degrees, concord, fine. scrows 72 and san francisco, 64. here's our live camera looking out mount diablo. we are in fire season and into next week, we are talking about another warm up here in the bay area. a few spots could be approaching the upper 90s, but

intense firefighting can lead not just to ptsd, but real brain damage. >> we call it ptsi, post traumatic stress injury. it's literally a physiological, neurological injury to our hippocampus, actually. so when we're doing these, we are constantly in a fight or flight and that can wreak havoc on our systems. >> reporter: the goal? >> provide help quickly. available anywhere, even on location in the fire line. >> reporter: there is counseling and treatment available during and after incidents to avoid a lonely dive into self destructive behavior, including addiction, alcoholism and suicide. but these life savers tend not to reach out for personal help. this is all a far -- from a few
