parking lot as firefighters wait to make sure it's safe to tow away. this video captures the moments the car burst into flames. santa clara county fire department says the owner had just brought the tesla in after getting a flat tire. not long after there were flames under the front of the car, then smoke and then people scrambling out of the way. here's what it looked like when the flames were finally doused. the front of that car completely burned away. the owner explains what he heard from the parking lot. >> under the hood a strange hissing sound. i came out and there was smoke everywhere and so the shop immediately called the fire department and by the time they got here the car was already on fire. >> the vehicle started off gassing making a loud hissing noise producing additional smoke. that's an indication that there's some type of combustion process happening in the battery. >> nobody was hurt as a result of the fire, but the big
6:01 pm
question will be how did it get started? there have been reports of other tesla fires, most of those coming after crashes. also this evening new video out of dublin where a man steals a package right off someone's porch in broad daylight. you see the suspect's car back up. he picks up the big package and drives off. the good news, dublin police have arrested this man, 27-year- old cody mcdowell. he is accused of stealing from the porches of several dublin residences. the stolen property has been recovered. new at 6:00 the surprising new theory behind earthquakes at the nation's tallest dam. >> spillway failure led to mass evacuations last year dilbut i to the cracks, scientists were also investigating a seismic mystery, what caused nearly 20,000 earthquakes at that spillway. >> kpix5's maria medina is live at the usgs in menlo park where scientists may have discovered
6:02 pm
the answer. maria? >> reporter: yeah. researchers went back a 1/4 century and found these earthquakes may be manmade. as the main spillway at oroville dam failed last february -- >> that's what we see at these different stations. >> reporter: -- scientists at the usgs were focused on something also happening at the dam that couldn't be heard or seen. >> we were wondering what's going on. >> reporter: two earthquakes, a 1.0 magnitude tremor and a 0.8. researchers began taking a closer look. >> found close to 20,000 of these tiny vents more or less in the same location. >> reporter: coffman said they discovered since 1993 there were thousands of small shallow earthquakes at the dam. the big question causing them? could it be the dam itself and could the quakes be behind the spillway failure? >> what we found is that all these 20,000 events coincided with use of the spillway. >> reporter: researchers found more than 99% of the quakes
6:03 pm
happened when the spillway was in use. the strongest tremors occurred when the emergency spillway was opened during the failure and massive amounts of water were released. so what caused the quakes? >> the most likely culprit is water actually gets under the spillway into cracks in the bedrock and these cracks open and close and they generate these seismic signals. >> reporter: but he doesn't believe these caused the spillway to fail. a team of independent experts found the design and other factors were the cause, a mystery researchers believe they've solved. the bottom line, the quakes at oroville dam appear to be manmade. >> it's the first time we've seen this, but in all fairness, it's also the first time we've looked. >> reporter: the department of water resources oversees the dam. we asked a spokesperson if they are concerned about these earthquakes. they say they just received the usgs report today and could not comment yet. >> what else did researchers say about this?
6:04 pm
could these small quakes actually cause a bigger quake? >> reporter: yeah. a really good question. researchers say not likely because we would have already seen a bigger earthquake by now since this has been happening since 1993. they also add that destructive earthquakes are usually between 6 to 10 miles deep. these earthquakes at oroville dam are much more shallow, just at the spillway. >> maria medina live for us tonight in menlo park, thank you. new details on a deadly hit and run in san francisco, this happened last wednesday on bush street and police now say the suspect vehicle is a dark colored 2007 or 2008 honda fit. the suspect in the hit and run was caught on surveillance video. the woman stopped briefly but jumped back in her car and drove away. a 58-year-old woman was killed in that collision. police are asking if anyone recognizes the vehicle or the woman, to give them a call.

6:07 pm

6:32 pm
pretty extraordinary, not only because of the abrupt delay, but also because of the judge who had critical words for michael flynn. michael flynn left the u.s. district courthouse in washington without a decision on his future. the federal judge delayed sentencing for president trump's former national security advisor who has pleaded guilty for lying to the fbi about his contacts with russia. before offering the postponement, judge sullivan lashed out telling flynn, "i can't hide my disgust, my disdain. arguably you sold your country out." he warned that if he went ahead with sentencing, flynn might not get full credit for his cooperation with investigators, which is still ongoing. president trump fired flynn but tweeted support this morning wishing flynn good luck under tremendous pressure. >> the fbi broke standard protocol in the way that they came in and ambushed general flynn and in the way that they questioned him. >> reporter: flynn is one of five trump aides who has entered a guilty plea in the
6:33 pm
special counsel probe. the retired army general has met with investigators 19 times so far. in light of flynn's cooperation, prosecutors had recommended no prison time, but the judge's rebuke raised the possibility that flynn could spend time behind bars. he said he still has many questions for both sides and called for a status report by march 13th. until that status report flynn will continue cooperating with the special counsel. in the meantime tonight the judge ordered flynn to say within the d.c. area and surrender his passport by early january. in washington, nicole killian, kpix5. after a week long stalemate the white house press secretary sarah sanders signaled today that the president could support a compromise bill to avert a partial government shutdown. sanders says the white house has begun exploring other sources to find $5 billion for the border wall. this marks a reversal from the

6:35 pm
it's shameful. it's cruel. >> reporter: nguyen fled the communist takeover of vietnam on a boat with her family when she was 4 years old. she later rose to become san jose's first vietnamese american council member and vice mayor. >> if they go back there, they're not really sat's going to happen to them, particularly those who actually went to reeducation camp after the war. they are seen as the enemies of the country and so for them to go back now it's a very dangerous situation. >> reporter: several past administrations have allowed those immigrants to stay in the u.s. under a decade old agreement, but a reinterpretation by trump's department of homeland security reverses that. a dhs spokesperson says, "we have 5,000 convicted criminal aliens from vietnam with final orders of removal. it's a priority of this administration to remove criminal aliens to their home country." immigrant supporters including san jose dhtargeting -- who the is targeting. >> there's a very big difference obviously between being convicted for a predatory
6:36 pm
violent felony and being convicted for driving under the influence 35 years ago. >> reporter: liccardo said san jose may join other cities in denouncing the deportation effort that he says could affect many people that have called san jose home for decades. in san jose, len ramirez, kpix5. the trump administration has officially banned bump fire stocks, the devices that make it easier to fire rounds from a semiautomatic weapon. bump stocks gained national attention last year after the las vegas gunman rigged his weapons with the devices and killed 58 people. people who own them must turn them into the atf over the next 90 days or destroy them by march 21st. hollywood remembers its fiesty laverne, how penny marshall was a pioneer in both film and television. >> and a very merry christmas for some employees for getting the bonus of a lifetime from their boss. sfx: squeak
