instead of filling the full two pack prescription as approved by the fda. >> our reaction was that it's unconscionable. >> the food allergy advocates at fair point out the emergency medication is prescribed in a two pack for a reason. the first pen may fail and many need more than one dose to survive. >> i of only allowed to have one -- i was only allowed to have one epipen. >> but we heard from dozens of patients who said kaiser pharmacists are only filling half their child's two pack epipen prescriptions. according to the fda a pharmacist could only reduce the prescription to one pen if that's specifically what was prescribed. the state pharmacy board is urging those affected to file a complaint and has now opened an investigation. one of the greatest concerns following our report last week? accusations that some like danielle were given a single pen without proper labeling. >> if there's no label, it's a violation of our law. >> while kaiser says it's rationing due to a shortage, many patients point out kaiser is making double the money charging the full co-pay for
6:01 pm
half the prescription. >> i did question if it was legal. they said it was fine because of the shortage. >> gomez says kaiser charged her two co-pays at the same time when she went in to get pens for each of her two kids opening one box, handing her two separate pens, then charging her twice the price she'd normally pay for what would otherwise be just one full prescription. >> generally speaking, you can only be charged one copayment for each prescription. >> the insurance commissioner says people who feel they've been charged unfairly should file additional complaints with the department of insurance. meanwhile while there is a shortage of the epipen brand and the generic that kaiser provides, there's no shortage of the oviq injector which kaiser said it would provide when there's a shortage of national brands, but when danielle asked for oviq, she was denied. kaiser patients generally don't have the option of shopping around. >> i don't know what my choices
6:02 pm
are at this point. >> we reached out to oviq which tells us tonight it will cover its version of the epipen at no cost for kaiser patients during the shortage. you'll find more information later tonight on our website. meanwhile we reached out to kaiser again today and they sent us the same statement they sent last week. they say while the fda approved this product to be on the market as a two-pen set, physicians have the discretion to prescribe this drug as clinically appropriate. our physician groups have endorsed the splitting of these packages to preserve supplies during the shortage." we should note many kaiser physicians are still prescribing two pens. it's the pharmacy that's only filling one. kaiser says once supplies return to normal, the limit will be removed and kaiser says they are working with other manufacturers concerning supplies. >> so when people get just the one version of kaiser's version of the epipen, they get one. can they go back and get that second one? >> yeah, they can go back. we're hearing different things from different people. in some cases they say it's one week. in some cases they have to wait
6:03 pm
a month, but they will have to pay a second co-pay for the other half of that prescription. >> thanks. we've got breaking news now, firefighters battling a fire right now near the tesla headquarters on fremont boulevard. this sparked within the last hour. the flames have apparently spread to some nearby power lines as well. you see the fire is burning some big bales of cardboard, also what appears to be a tent structure. i know they were using some tents for assembly of the latest model 3 car. chopper 5 overhead, you see all the smoke coming from that fire. that's not helping our air quality. this is burning on tesla's property, but so far no word on the exact cause. we'll keep monitoring this for you. you likely dealt with it today, our air th viewm chopper flying over the east bay. it's smoggy, very unhealthy to breathe and the worst air we've dealt with so far this year. the warning? stay inside.

6:09 pm
for a shelter. >> i'm hoping that they consider this as an option to provide housing for the homeless. >> reporter: 10 days ago sam liccardo sent a letter to the supervisors department asking if there was any reinterest in reusing the building for low income housing and pledged city support to make it happen. it's close to light rail and county services. homeless advocates call it a no brainer. >> people are dying in record numbers. the numbers are way up. everybody agrees, the county and city and all the nonprofits. so anything that can be converted quickly to housing needs to be done. >> reporter: now an ad hoc group of developers and foard led bym silatto eced 0 mi for the project and people in t building, but the can. says it's not that easy. >> back in -- the county says it's not that easy. >> back in 2015 we had a consultant do an assessment.
6:10 pm
>> reporter: the report showed the annex was too run down and not suitable for reuse and it would need at least $50 million in rehab work just to make it inhabitable again. >> while the county is very supportive and a leader with respect to supportive housing and helping folks who are homeless, using the annex itself given the condition of the building, which is very, very, very poor, it's not from the county's view the right vehicle. >> reporter: staff will be recommending the building be demolished, but san jose still says not so fast. >> i think it's important for us because we're in a housing crisis that we need to look at what the developers are saying and get their point of view, get their take. >> reporter: why is it important to go that extra step? >> because this building is already standing. >> reporter: county officials say the master plan does include plans for permanent low income housing on this site, this general area here in san jose near the civic center. this particular issue will be developed or discussed at the board of supervisors meeting,

fed up with train horns... san mateo is trying to establish quiet zones for caltrain. ther fed up with train horns, san mateo is trying to establish quiet zones for caltrain. there are nine rail crossings that run through the city and train engineers are required to sound their horns. now the exception to that rule involves upgrading rail crossings with very specific safety features. the city is now studying the idea. meanwhile the state senate approved a bill that would allow b.a.r.t. to fast track housing projects on its property. supporters say it would ease the bay area's severe housing crunch. opponents say it gives b.a.r.t. a blank check to design housing projects that don't fit with city building codes. the revised bill now goes back to the state assembly. new at 6:00 the school district drawing heat for installing new solar panels on
6:15 pm
school campuses, kpix5's devin fehely explains why trying to help the environment has neighbors so upset. >> reporter: yeah. those solar panels are in the back of the school along the fence line they share with neighbors and neighbors say those panels are big, unsightly, intrusive and overshadow their yards. the solar panels are massive, seen from sky drone 5 spanning part or all of three homes along the backside of nixon elementary school in palo alto where neighbors say they didn't know they were being added to the schoolyard until construction began in mid-june. >> the big objection is the fact that that the school board did not notify people affected by this program. >> reporter: palo alto unified school districts new superintendent don austin didn't want to talk on camera about the solar panels, but acknowledged the efforts to
6:16 pm
notify neighbors was inadequate. the district has installed solar panels at five schools with plans for a sixth. so far only neighbors at nixon and nearby escondido elementary schools voiced concerns. >> what they prefer is to haveu suitable location. they were never given the opportunity to make suggestions about what locations within the schoolyard would be acceptable. >> reporter: the superintendent says the district is committed to working with homeowners to find a solution. short of pulling the plug on a program, estimated to save the school system more than a half million dollars over its lifetime. now the neighbors that we spoke to, as you heard, said they want those solar panels moved someplace else. what's not clear is if that would simply shift the problem to someone else's backyard. in palo alto, devin fehely, kpix5. apple stores keep getting hit by rockers who rush into the crowded stores and grab the electronics. the latest heist happened yesterday in the north bay.
6:17 pm
kpix5's da lin on why store security guards are powerless to stop the thieves. >> reporter: the police departments released three photos of the alleged thieves grabbing up and running off with apple products at this corte madera apple store. it's not the action of the thieves running away, but the inaction of the security guard that's got shoppers talking. he's standing by the door watching the bad guys get away. some people on facebook suggest at least stick a foot out to trip the suspects. that same guard tells me off camera company policy prohibits them from confronting thieves. they serve only as visual deterrents and their job is to call 911. police say thieves have hit up this corte madera store at least three times in recent months. >> essentially walk out or run out with the product so easily has unfortunately become i think the main target that brings them back.
6:18 pm
>> reporter: this is surveillance video of another grab and run. investigators say the thieves know about the policy and that's why they keep hitting apple stores up and down the state. on sunday shoppers tackled and sustained two suspected thieves at an apple store, the third suspect later arrested, all three from antioch. >> the store needs to change their practice and place armed guards in some of these facilities. >> reporter: former oakland police chief howard jordan says it's a huge dilemma for apple. armed security guards could lead to shootouts, injuries and lawsuits. >> having unarmed security guards really is not a good way to try to deter criminals from stealing your product. >> reporter: police say the thieves got away with about $19,000 worth of products. police are checking with apple and other police departments to see if this case might be connected to other cases. in corte madera, i'm da lin, kpix5.
