ground. the fire started at 10:30 yesterday morning and watch it slowed possess 9,000 acres by sundown. the battle continued through the night and it's far from over. huge flames lit the night's sky as the bluecut wildfire continued its relentless advance. it only took a matter of hours for the fire to explode thousands of acres tuesday afternoon, burning entire neighborhoods to the ground, and destroying the legendary summit 1952. >> firefighters can't make their way here. the flames just too intense. >> reporter: thick smoke filled the skies above san bernardino county. the wildfire grew quickly, and pushed by strong winds and dry brush, and hundred-degree temperatures. >> this is a huge, huge firefight out here. >> reporter: this fire is so hot, i can feel the heat radiating behind me, but it's also moved extremely fast and spread fire resources very thin.
there is not a firefighter in sight. >> spot ahead of itself and keeps moving and jumping and leapfrogging up because st spots. >> my hots home just blew up and probably seven of my cars caught on fire. >> reporter: six firefighters were briefly during that period by the flames. two of them suffered minor injuries. >> just because of the wind direction, we were fully engulfed with smoke and visibility was extremely low and hard just to see your hand in on we hunkered down and sat there and waited for the fire to blow over. >> reporter: we found these men working to protect their neighbors' homes. where are the firefighters? >> up there where the fire is, i guess. >> reporter: what is it like fighting a fire up here? >> it's part of living up here. >> reporter: what is it like as a firefighter when you see these people watching their homes burn and you know there is nothing you can do? >> it's tragic and something firefighters hate to see. >> reporter: this is one of nine fires burning in california
sacramento, is 35% contained and we have learned the man who was arrested for setting that fire was trained as an inmate firefighter while he was in prison and, margaret, he is scheduled to be arraigned today. >> carter, thank you. donald trump is overhauling his top political staff again. his campaign confirmed the changes overnight. promoting an adviser and hiring the executive chairman of a conservative website. steven bann becomes campaign's ceo and while trump strategist kelly ann conway is the new campaign manager. paul manafort remains campaign chairman. earlier, trump criticized recent violence in milwaukee and the democratic party's relationship with african-americans. major garrett covers last night's trump rally in west bend, wisconsin and with us this morning from milwaukee. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump is on his third campaign manager.
a scandal linked to ukraine and maybe off the books payment to manafort. before that news broke, trump made a speech here he hoped would appeal to african-americans by accusing hillary clinton and the democratic party in general of being indifferent to inner city poverty. >> so every voter living in the inner city, or every forgotten stretch of our society, i'm running to offer you a much better future. >> reporter: dontr movement by condemning what he called decades of failed democratic urban rule. >> i'm asking for the vote of struggling in our country today, who wants a different and much better future. >> reporter: the message was new, but the audience was typical. overwhelming white. a recent poll showing trump
than of what mitt romney got. >> we will reject bigotry and depression in all of its ugly forms. >> reporter: from the start of his campaign, trump has drawn criticism for racial insensitive. >> he is a mexico. look at my african-american over here. are you greatest? >> reporter: this time, trump rekindled a long conservative argument that democratic despair. >> the african-american community has been taken for granted for decades by the democratic party and look how they are doing. >> reporter: and electing hillary clinton would further inflame racial tensions. >> we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton, which panders and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. >> reporter: trump has rejected numerous opportunities to
the naacp or the national urban league. today in new york, trump will receive his first classified intelligence briefing as the republican party nominee. >> republican strategist and cbs news contributor frank luntz is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do we make of the changes in the trump campaign? >> you don't do it -- you have addition. that is traditional in politic as you get closer to the election, you add more talent but you don't have a shake-up like this. you don't take the top person and push them aside as they to steve bannon is one of the toughest and most aggressive and most negative operatives in america today and that signals to me that trump, rather than softening his approach, is going to double-down on being the tough, in your face, campaigner and i don't think that is what donald trump needs. these are independent undecided voters he is going after. they appreciate his message but they question he, himself. they don't like the persona and they don't like the anger and hatred. they want change in washington
and think he can bring it but don't like him as a person. >> what will kelly ann conway? she has worked with several other campaigns. >> i have known her for 30 years. at the this is someone who knows polling and focus groups and messaging but the question is will donald trump listen to her and does he listen to anyone? his message still resonates. his message is stronger this hillary clinton but his porna is upsetting to so many people. take a look at the polling the last two weeks. when he finished the convention he was up by two points and now down by eight and all because of his persona and not his policies and not the issues he has talked about. >> does this deepen the divide within the republican party or mend fences in any way? >> it depends on what trump says and does. they want him to be totally prepared for this debate. they want him to take the campaign against hillary clinton. but every time he is talking about gold star moms and every
agitating people and every time it's about this conversation right now, donald trump is losing. >> roger ailes? >> i think it's significant. and roger is, to me, i've known him since 1980, the best political operative. he knows how to win a debate, he knows how to win a presentation. he took george h.w. bush and i believe ailes was the most important person in that campaign but it's somewhat combustible to put trump and roger ailes in the same room and like pulling stalin and adding more. >> they say there has nobody formal deal with him. >> there may not be a formal deal but it doesn't mean they don't talk. >> thank you, frank. republicans and democrats are ready for a fight over hillary clinton's e-mails. they received notes from the investigation that led to no charges against clinton. the candidate is promoting a
tax breaks to the rich. nancy cordes is in washington where the fbi gave the clinton-related documents to congress yesterday. >> reporter: we learned the fbi is turning over quite a bit of material to congress. a highly unusual move designed to convince republicans that the agency thoroughly investigated clinton's use of a private server before recommending against prosecution. the fbi labeled the clinton material secret, warning being provided with the expectation it will not be disseminated or disclosed without fbi concurrence. the documents include interview summaries that republicans will pore over looking for discrepancies what clinton told fbi agents and what she told congress. >> nothing was marked classified at the time or sent or received it. >> reporter: republicans are trying to make the case that clinton should be prosecuted for perjury and false statements. the latest salvo in the 17-month
of desperation on the part of republicans who continue to use taxpayer money to affect an election that isn't going their way and hoping to change the subject, her campaign accused trump last night of pushing a deranged conspiracy about clinton's health. >> hillary clinton doesn't have that strength or st believe me. >> reporter: the 70-year-old trump has made a series of unfounded statements about clinton's well-being. >> she's got -- she is low energy. she actually is low energy. >> reporter: clinton aides point out she has done hundreds of campaign events. >> we have to be committed. >> reporter: and saileded through an 11-hour benghazi hearing. >> those are the facts, mr. chairman. >> reporter: that hasn't stopped trump. >> she will take an nap for four or five hours and come back. no naps for trump! >> reporter: the 68-year-old
year. but that hasn't stopped some far right websites super from spreading a fake letter from that doctor claiming she has dementia and is proned to blacking out. >> thank you, nancy. people in southern louisiana are beginning to salvage what they can after the catastrophic flooding. overwhelming devastation of the event is coming in full view. the death toll climbed to 11 and persons rescued from the rising water is jumped to 30,000 and flood warnings posted in southern half of the state and some could see more rain today. omar villafranca, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the water is starting to recede here in soorrento. it's knee-high here and farther down, waist-high. later on, search crews will go
they are worried the death toll will rise. the flooding crisis punishing southern louisiana intensified tuesday. 16 more parishes were added to the federal disaster declaration. here in sorrento floodwaters have rushed downstream and devastating the small community and leaving the local fire chief at a loss for word. >> we are losing a bunch of homes. a lot of them. >> reporter: national guard troops carried out more rescues in baton rouge. so far, 30,000 people have been saved. louisiana governor john bel edwards says many have still been reluctant to evacuate. >> people who live in homes that have never flooded don't leave their homes when you want them of an impending flood. >> reporter: what do you tell the 11,000 people still in shelters right now? >> that we are moving heaven and
rainfall dumped more than two feet of rain in parts of louisiana. >> the people here work hard for what they got and to see them lose it because of this, you know, it's hard. >> reporter: on sunday, volunteers rescued mary ellen morgan and her family. tuesday, we found her at the now flood damaged home. have you been able to get any of your personal belongings? >> i don't even know. >> reporter: do you care? >> no, i don't. we are safe. we are well. i mean, how much more blessed could one person >> reporter: the cleanup here will take months and, so far, 60,000 people have signed up for fema assistance but the immediate danger is not over because there is more rain in the forecast. charlie? >> omar, thanks. team usa won nine more medals at the rio olympics
