griego. kenny is off. good morning everyone. it is monday, august 15th. i'm michelle griego. kenny is off. crews from around northern california are working tirelessly to contain the clayton fire in lake county. it's torched thousands of acres and has been spreading fast since it broke out saturday afternoon. and residents in the lake county area are no stranger to wildfires. this region saw significant damage from the valley, rocky and jerusalem blazes, we want to take you out live to lower lake, kpix 5's anne makovec explains why the clayton fire has been so difficult to fight. anne? >> reporter: yeah, take a look at the devastation that has been left behind. this is in downtown lower lake. and you're looking at what used to be an office for habitat for humanity. this is a small downtown strip and the fire just thickened and -- picked and chose a few
building that it ended up taking down. we don't even know how many buildings have burned in this fire now that light is hitting -- this area. where it is going to be able to get a little bit better picture of what we're dealing with. you can see many destroyed cars as well -- [ no audio ] the fire burning on the eastern portion of lower lake east of highway 29. it has burned more than 3,000 acres. now the official word is ten homes burned but as i said we already know that the number is much larger than that. and the fire started saturday and we've been hearing stories of how quickly it got out of control. flaring up with yesterday's winds and hot dry conditions. >> i couldn't even drive. i had to stop at the bottom of the bridge because it's my everything.
>> reporter: yeah, that is one of the thousands of people who has been evacuated. she believes her home is gone. there are three evacuation centers set up including one at twin pines casinos. the thousands of people who had to leave their homes really don't know what is next. there are about 1,000 firefighters here from all over the area and pg&e also had to cut off electrical service to almost 2,000 buildings to make sure the firefighters have safe access to fight this fire from all angles. all right back out here live now in downtown lower lake where you can see is just going to be quite a process to clean up once the fire is even stopped. at this point, the conditions have been favorable overnight. cooler temperatures. but firefighters have a long way to go. live in lower lake, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> it's just heart break dog see the images from lower lake and do the danger appear to be over for the downtown lower lake area? >> reporter: there are a lot of
firefighters here on scene to make sure that none of these hot spots flare up because there are a lot of hot shot we can see little firing burns all over the place -- fires burning all over the place, this roadway is blocked right now to the public. so as far as it reigniting downtown, it seems unlikely just because this area is under protection at this point. but firefighters certainly have their work cut out for them with the parameter of the fire. >> all right, anne makovec in lake county. thank you. bay area fire departments are doing everything they can to help crush the clayton blaze. san francisco's department is sending six fire protection crew brigs plus 262 staff members and contra costa county is bringing two engines to the fire lines and crews in lake county are also getting help from san mateo and oakland. each city is sending four firefighters. stay with kpix 5 for the latest on the clayton fire and also for updates anytime just head
to our website. cbssf.com. no help from the weather thereupon as well? no it's going to be very hot and of course the winds generating those fire winds generate their own kind of weather pattern as well. but it's so difficult so see when you talk about the difference in the fires and the wind patterns at this particular time. let's take a look at the air quality forecast for today around the bay area. we have more of the upper level trough that's breezing through the bay area, we have some cleaner air around the region. good air quality due to a west wind 10 to 20 along the seashore in the bay but in the inland areas still the south and southwest flow that's ushering in some of the smoke and haze if is soberanes fire. into the santa clara valley and lipping around to the eastern portion -- whipping around to the eastern portion of the bay area, but nonetheless just a little bit of a haze in the atmosphere. this our live weather camera this morning, we're taking a look out towards the bay bridge where we have a lowering ceiling again the tiptop of the bay bridge roughly about 525 feet tall when you cannot see it that means the ceiling is
lowering and right now, we're going to be checking in with those possibility of airport delays at sfo. because whenever that ceiling is about 600 feet, you see those delays on some arriving flights. 50s 60s this morning and numbers wise here's where you can expect. here talking about 6 60s at the beaches no clearing there. 70s 80s around the peninsula in the santa clara valley up to 94 in brentwood. down from 100 yesterday. and north bay numbers, take your pick. 60s beaches and 770s mill valley and 80s in novato. the full forecast is still coming up but right now, what's up roqui? what's up ro? okay a will the going on right now altamont pass, pleasanton, the time now is 6:05 #. to pleasanton first. northbound 680 at bernal avenue. two car crash moved to the center divide and now but this northbound crash is causing some delays on the southbound side. cars are moving about 23, 20 miles per hour. maybe some looky-loo action going on. and then let's head to the altamont pass. where of course your usual problem area coming out of tracy. but we also have a crash there westbound at grantline road and
cars are driving about 12 miles per hour. so that commute there will take you about 30 minutes to get to the dublin interchange. about 20 minutes. looking good on both directions and just keep in mind your bay bridge toll plaza is pretty backed up to the maze. michelle? all right, roqui thank you. in monterey county, crews have made enough progress fighting the soberanes fire that they've been able to reopen part of highway 1. the stretch from point sur light station opened last night at 8:00 and power was also restored to nearby lines which had been deenergized to keep firefighters safe. the soberanes has burned more than 72,000 acres and it is now 6 # 0% contained -- 60% contained. san francisco will conduct a review of the trees at one of its parks after a woman was injured by a falling branch. the woman was struck friday when the 100-pound branch fell 50 feet from a pine tree at washington square park. she remains hospitalized in critical condition. the tree in question was fully

atmosphere. not quite as ominous as last friday when we left you but nonetheless, we still have moderate air quality throughout most of the bay area. so bottom line is, the coast will not be clear. it will be socked in today. sunny and seasonal bayside and more into the end ran areas -- end land areas and futurecast here's the lunch hour. again clouds all the way into the golden gate bridge and bayside around the rim of the bay clearing out. we have some clearing into santa cruz with a high temperature there today of 75. otherwise we will have the clouds filtering on shore again. all because of the enhanced marine layer due to an upper level trough breezing through the bay area, start the tuesday morning very much like we began today. this is the area of low pressure next on-deck. that will continue to enhance our marine layer for our tuesday so we will be cool at 58 in daly city. otherwise, nice in our inland areas down now to the triple digits in brentwood to 94 degrees, 96 in sacramento and 105 fresno and merced and modesto. all the way back into manteca.
840 in the high sierra. and 62 with problems with the matter in the form of the smoke in the monterey bay area. here's the sunrise at 6:26. by the time it sets tonight we will shave off 2:03 of daylight hours. 60s, 70s and 80s and 90s today in the bay area. the winds out of the south and southwest 10, 20 miles per hour. for your tuesday, warmer on wednesday and seasonal by the end of the week. we are talking about a baseball game tonight. the pick match-up. matt moore for the giants taking on sun for the pirates now. cool and 60. go giants. good morning everybody. from levi's stadium, where there was mixed results for the 49ers' preseason opener and what happened to the san francisco giants' bullpen? sports from levi's coming up.
good morning everybody. from levi's stadium, where the 49ers' preseason was supposed to be about that quarterback controversy. blaine gabbert versus colin kaepernick, but kaepernick didn't play tonight. he was in street clothes because of what chip kelly called arm fatigue. so the kelly era got underway versus the texans and a rough start for the 49ers' first string offense. carlos hyde fumbles and picked up by houston's john simon and he ran it back 41 yards for a touchdown to make it 7-0 houston. but on the very next drive, gabbert finds vance mcdonald who goes 43 yards for the tying touchdown. the 49ers had over 300 yards of offense in the first half. but houston came back in the second half and beat san francisco 24-13. giants taking on the orioles on hunter pence's bobble body day. bottom of the 4th starting pitcher johnny cueto comes through with an rbi single. giving the giants a 3-0 lead. they led 7-1 after five. but baltimore rallies, down 7-
5. two outs later in the 9th inning, the orioles' jonathan scope connects for a go ahead three run shot off casilla. baltimore stuns san francisco 8- 7. the mariners' kyle seager drove in four runs including a double in the 6th inning as seattle beat the oakland athletics 8-4. so i have bad news all around. the giants lose, the a's lose and of course the 49ers lose. san francisco and denver at denver next saturday right here on the big 5. i'm dennis o'donnell, i'll see you tonight. and it is 6:26. after a week of disruptions santa clara county workers are back on the job this morning but everything won't be back to normal. >> and now that the sun is coming up we're getting a better look at the devastation from the fire burning right now in lake county. and it is bad. we'll give you an update on that fire and the thousands of evacuations next.

it's burned thousands of acres and has been spreading fast since it broke out saturday afternoon. and locals in lake county area are no stranger to wildfires. this region saw significant damage from the valley rocky and jerusalem blazes. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in lower lake on why the clayton fire has been so difficult to get a handle on. anne? >> reporter: yeah, we have a couple of priorities this morning when it comes the fighting the their -- to fighting this fire, one is reinforcing the line and number two assessing the damage and you can see some of it here behind me, this is in downtown lower lake. you're looking at what used to be an office for habitat for humanity. and my camera man was just panning around you can see the vehicles, out back that were destroyed and over a dozen vehicles. so assessing the damage is going to be huge today. because they don't know how many buildings were destroyed and how many homes were destroyed over the past 24 hours because of this fire. it really blew up yesterday
afternoon. and right now more than 4,000 people are evacuated throughout lake county. the fire burning on the eastern portion of lower lake just east of highway 29. it has been burning toward the city of clear lake and it's burned more than 3,000 acres so far. the official word is ten homes have burned but again we know that number is much bigger than that already. the fire started saturday and we're hearing stories about quickly it got out of control. flaring up with yesterday's winds and hot dry conditions. so firefighters are praying that the weather works in their favor today. >> weather is a nemesis for us. so we don't know what that is going to bring to the table today. so our focus right now is reinforcing our containment lines and working on making sure this community and the those around here that have been impacted by this fire that all the little issues, power, gas, safety issues, have been neutralized. >> reporter: and there are three evacuation centers set up including one at twin pine
casino. the thousands of people who had to leave their homes don't know what's next. >> this is where we all grew up. you know. >> all we've known our wheel life. >> and all of the neighbors look at what they have to come home to. it's -- cruel. >> reporter: now pg&e cut off service to almost 2,000 buildings to make sure firefighters had safe access to fight the fires from all angles. and you can see some of them standing by on scene here today. because they're really trying to be sure that none of these small fires that are still burning within this ugly scene don't flare up. and threaten some of the buildings around here. this is a very small downtown area. and there are other buildings very close by. so they're really trying to make sure that some part of lower lake downtown is able to be preserved. live in lower lake, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> and as anne said evacuation centers are open right now. they are at -- ghlands senior r in
clearlake. we talked to some of the evacuees yesterday.. who say they are facing a lot of uncertainty. " evart/evacuee; the we talked to some of the evacuees yesterday who say they are facing a lot of uncertainty. >> first thing in my mind is how many looters are we going get before the firefighters get here and stuff? so -- we try to secure everything. and hose everything down. >> the red cross says the evacuation centers will be up as long as they are needed. and that fire is affecting the air quality in that area right? >> it is but you look attila and what devastation. it's just so very reminiscent of last year with the valley fire and here we go again and you know with the particular fires, there's so massive that they create their own kind of weather pattern and the wind just whip up out of all the different directions. last week we were the recipient of the soberanes fire as far as the smoke and haze is concerned. that's still the situation in the santa clara valley and also the east bay but in the north bay where last week you said what plume of smoke in well now
you have some moderate air quality that's all associated with the clayton fire that is now burning in that area. throughout lake county. good air quality along the coast and the central bay. also south central bay the peninsula, that's because you are the recipient of more of a west wind 10 to 20. coast is not clear low clouds and fog has filtered on shore at least a good 50, 60 miles and result is we have up to one hour delays on some arriving flights at sfo. mineta and oakland doing okay at this point. 50s and 60s will great you and here's what you can expected to along the seashore, 60s and i would not bank on any clearing there. 70s with ample sunshine around the peninsula and jumping up to low 80s around campbell and 87 degrees in los gatos and back in through san jose including willow glen into the low 80s. 77 degrees fremont and union city today. 86 walnut creek the temperatures in the 80s and low 90s very seasonal for the tri- valley. then out of the triple digits
to 94 in brentwood and discovery bay. the winds out of the south and southwest east into the south of the bay. that's why you have some of the smoke and haze from the soberanes fire. and take your pick, 60s along the north bay beaches anden # os mill valley and 80s novato into the napa valleys. right now here's roqui. let's take a look at the altamont pass obviously trouble area for every morning commute. but it is worth it when there's an accident. that westbound traffic will take you about 45 minutes to get through that accident is at grantline road westbound 580 and cars are driving about 10 miles per hour. out of the tracy area. then let's head to pleasanton for another accident. northbound 68 # at bernal avenue. slowing southbound traffic actually probably some looky- loo action there and at bernal avenue again. cars are moving about 15, 22 miles per hour and here's a look at the mass transit. we have a ferry update. if you take that ferry at 8:00 in the morning, it has been
canceled and the substitute is the shuttle bus so keep that in mind. michelle? all right, roqui thank you. santa clara county court employees will find piles of unfinished paperwork when they return today. a disrupted strike is now over after the county agreed to give workers gradual raises over the next two years. most court operations are basically on hold after the walkout began august 3rd. and it will likely take a few days to clear the backlog of cases that have piled up since then. later today, the san francisco police commission is talking about its ideal future police chief. the san francisco police department says it's making changes since it has been stat center of controversies. kpix 5's reporter lisa chan is live in the newsroom with details of today's meeting, lisa? >> reporter: well, the search is on for the next san francisco chief of police. and the police commission wants input from the community on the recruitment process. internet receiver saws have been sent out to get opinions from both community members and police department staff. a special e-mail account has been established to receive this information.

firearms or weapons by police forces in the u.s. the group will hold anoas conference this afternoon at the -- a news conference this afternoon at the mission police station. lisa chan, kpix 5. time now is 6:39. california voters will decide in some contentious issues this move including the depth and -- death penalty and marijuana legalization. melissa caen will join us to explain how the presidential race could determine the outcome of ballot measures. ,,

republican voters are unsatisfied with donald trump as party nominee. 25% of california democrats are unsatisfied with hillary clinton as a nominee. so for some voters in california, they are just not fired up to get out and vote for the president. now the other big race, that is happening in november, is the u.s. senate race between loretta sanchez and harris, but both of the candidates are democrats, sowf trump and -- so you have trump and clinton and no republican in the senate race and we could have a number of voters staying home on election day. and if that happens it would have a big effect on california's future. that's because aside from the president and the senate, we're going to be voting on really important things. ending the death penalty, legalizing marijuana, gun control, and billions of dollars in bonds. the list just goes on and on. we have a total of 17 statewide ballot measures if the presidential candidates turn people off and democrats don't show up. maybe they think it's a
foregone conclusion, they may wake up the day after the election really wishing they had showed up. things are going to look very different. >> we have the presidential ration like you -- like you said and -- race like you said and what about other issues? >> in a word, taxes. i know a lot of people think that state government is boring but taxes are the one thing that should get your attention. now state legislature needs two- thirds majority to raise taxes. and right now democrats do not have that two-thirds majority. republicans have refused to vote for tax increases. but democrats are three seats away from that two-thirds majority. they just need to pick up one seat in the senate and two in the assembly and they will have enough to raise taxes without even talking to the republicans in sacramento. now whether you want more taxes or not, this is still a very big deal. now locally we have assemblywoman kathy baker in dublin a republican. the only republican who represents the bay area and sacramento. she is in a big fight to keep
her seat this november and that's just one of the races that can get democrats closer to that supermajority. so if folks in and out contra costa stay home, because they don't like hillary clinton, or trump, they're going to miss out on this potential huge shift in california politics. >> so melissa if the democrats have a supermajority, can the governor stop the tax increase? >> no. no. seeing a lot of people think governor brown is the brownup, he will protect us -- grown-up. he will protect us, here's the thing, he can't really stop the tax increase passed by the legislature, now technically he could veto it but remember the legislature can override a veto with that same two-thirds majority. so if they have the two-thirds of the votes for a tax increase, they have the two- thirds votes to make it stick. that's why it's important this year's election is about a lot more than just the presidency. >> in your expert opinion what do you think is going to happen withthat? >> with is assembly and senate? i think the democrats are throwing tons of resources and
they know this is a big chance to pick up the seats and republicans are going to be hanging on especially some of the swing districts like the ones we see out in contra costa. >> all right. give us a lot to think about melissa. always. thanks so much. it is 6:50 right now. crews in louisiana are forced to rescue more than 20,000 people in the midst of historic flooding and their job isn't over yet. >> and firefighters are trying to determine exactly how much damage has been done so far by the huge fire burning in lake county. we'll get you up to speed on the latest and the evacuations next.
