capt.brad cloutier/san jose fire".....the fuels are dry because of all the winter rain and the winds were also a factor, creating a very dynamic fire behavior. sometimes the fire would jump from one area to another and that presented a real challenge for crews to stay out ahead of it...." 24 hours later, you can see how the fire scorched about 120 acres, burning down the canyon and into alum rock park, which is closed indefinitely as crews continue to mop up hot spots and make sure there are no hidden embers that could rekindle a fire in the hot days ahead beneranda arias/evacuated from home "....i went out on the balcony to see what was going on and i saw that the fire was right there in front of my house so i said we've got to get out of here..."rob fladeboe/san jose all those evacuated have now returned home. one home was destroyed.two others suffered peripheral damage. three firefighters wereinjured, none seriously. the cause and exact origin of the fire are still under investigation. in san jose rob fladeoe kron 4 newss
( steve ) this is one of several recent fires in san jose. at the end of june, we saw three erupt in one day all near the mount hamilton area. one of them came dangerously close to homes but neighbors and firefighters managed to knock down the flames. so far, we have not heard of a cause for that fire. ( pam ) there is outrage being vented online ... after several videos posted... show
a police officer andskateboard er crash... at an unsanctioned contest on dolores street in san francisco last night. we talked to one person who captured the collision on his cell phone. police were there responding... to assist another skateboarder who had been injured. skateboarders continued to zoom past the officers. then one officer on the scene ... moves into the path of one oncoming skater. and that sends the skater into and then over the police cruiser . and then lands hard on the asphalt. some say.. the officer knocked into the skateboarder intentionally. the witness we talked to said, there was no way for the skateboarder to react in time. with the speed he was going and the way the cop stepped right into the path. you can even see the skater try to avoid the cop, no one ever wants to run into anyone. yyou never want to hit someone else on your skateboard because its going to hurt them it's going to hurt you. the skater definatley did not go out there to try and hurt someone. ( pam ) police say,
they too are reviewing the different angles of the video posted online ... as well as their own body cam video. at this point they say... it is not clear what the video shows. a friend of the skater sent us this picture, identifying him only as anthony. he reportedly suffered a broken ankle and tore a tendon in his knee. the officer who was hit was treated and released for non- life- threatening injuries. kron 4 spotted federal investigators going through the rubble today... as the try to figure out what sparked the massive construction site fire on valdez street in oakland. and as they were looking for clues, just blocks away... the city of oakland held a high- stakes meeting with developers. with several suspicious fires within the last year in the east bay... the city wants them to know... it is okay to build their projects. kron 4's dan kerman was the only reporter at city hall when the mayor sat down with construction managers. he found out about some of the

the top of construction fences at least temporarily.the city will also hold a meeting to determine the best practices when it comes to keeping a construction site safesotwe're looking at all sorts of tools, cameras motion detectors , how to prevent access via scaffolding, which was a factor in the san pablo fire, whether or not dogs on the site may be a deterantsot i was very impressed with the city's response.many of the developers that attended the meeting liked what they heard sot john protopappas/ madison park financial corp. developerthe city is actively trying to advise how to keeps these incidents from occurring and that advice is very helpful 143/very helpful
(steve) we have this update on neighboring 180 grand avenue tonight. that people... still closed off.... it is easy to see why. crews today were busy boarding up some of the broken windows. we should note that nobody lives in the building... but there are plenty of businesses that have their operations based out of there. no word on when it will reopen. an overnight fire outside a business in newark did significant damage.. and investigators have been on the scene.. catherine heenan is here with more on what happened o.. utside the 'cardinal kitchen and bath' store..
(catherine) that fire began a little after 2-am.....in some vans and trucksparked outside the business... this is just outside a kitchen and bath business on central avenue in newark..the fire spread from the vans to an overhang of the building, which was damaged. an obvious question --- whether someone intentionally set the vehicles on fire. fire crews sounded a second alarm to make sure the rest of the building and a lumber yard next door weren't damaged. battalion chief robert petersen when we arrived we found several vehicles on fire in front of the kitchen and bath. we extinguished the fireand made sure there was nothing on the interior. the business has a sprinkler system so that protected the buildingfrom the inside out. the lumber yard wasn't damaged....and no one was injured... investigators haven't determined yet exactly how the fire started. pam and steve?

(philippe) little did jim gilliland know that he would never see his friends and
family again on october 27th... when that night he returned to his home on mira vista drive in el cerrito after church choir practice. police say it appears someone was waiting for him... shot him multiple times on his porch... then the gunman vanished.brian colucci/friend and colleague- "we worked very closely together." brian colucci (co-lew-chee) worked with gilliland at a law firm. he says jim had a lot of friends... friends who have banded together since the homicide... now, doubling the initial reward offered in this case from 50 to 100- thousand dollars... for information leading to an arrest and conviction for the murder.brian colucci/friend and colleague- "we're hopeful that, continuing to let people know that we have not forgotten about this and that we're not gonna simply, simply let it go, um, we're hoping that that's gonna create some additional awareness about this and hopefully lead to some more information." as an attorney... gilliland practiced law for more than 35-years in state and federal courts... the police department says it has not ruled out that his homicide may be tied to his
capacity as a lawyer.lt. robert de la campa/el cerrito police dept.- "we can't rule it out, because we don't know the true motive at this time." so far, police say surveillance video gathered that deadly night, has not been helpful. later this week... jim's friends will put up a billboard outside oracle arena announcing the increased reward money.brian colucci/friend and colleague- "we're a group of people with, with resources to do what we can and we're going to do it as long as we need to." this was one of two homicides reported last year in el cerrito. philippe djegal, kron four news.

student won... but was temporarily removed from the position. in the lawsuit, he claims the school district violated his first amendment rights. his lawyers say, the district cannot punish a student because they do not like what he says ... or how he chooses to say it. the school district has not commented on this lawsuit. ( pam ) the 9th- circuit court of appeals has taken up a rather interesting case. it is listening to arguments over who has the rights to a monkey "selfie." the court questioned a lawyer representing the "people for the ethical treatment of animals" known as peta... over why the group had the authority to sue on behalf of the primate. peta wants all proceeds from the photograph to go to the monkey. the pictures were taken in indonesia in 2011, when the animal picked up a camera belonging to a british photographer. the photographer says ... he holds the copyright. the case is here in the bay area because the photographer used software from a san francisco company .. to publish the pictures in

let's take a look outside right now for the current conditions in the bay area... (steve) chief meteorologist brittney shipp joins us now with the forecast. little change expected across the region today into thursday with temperatures near seasonal averages and areas of night and morning coastal/valley clouds. a warming trend is then expected late in the week with hot conditions again likely for inland areas away from the coast this weekend. conditions then cool back to near average early next week as high pressure over the region weakens.k.

(pam) there are millions of open jobs in the united states ... so why aren't they being filled. the change in policy being pushed ...that could alter workplace rules.
another recent round of amelia earhart mania has been shot down...and the mystery of her disappearance 80- years ago... remains unsolved... catherine heenan is here with news about a recently unearthed photo thatwas the subject of a documentary.. (catherine) the photo that launched a history channel documentary has been debunked. it's yet another theory as to how the legendary pilot died - that went nowhere. the photo supposedly shows amelia earhart alive - and sitting on a pacific island jetty in 1937. the theory - she crash-landed, was picked up by the japanese and imprisoned until her death. another figure in the photo was said to show her navigator, fred noonan. now - two bloggers say that they've found the same picture in a travel book that came out in 1935.that's two years before earhart disappeared - when she was still safe in the u.s. there were skeptics from day one - since the photo is
so blurry and grainy. adding insult to injury - the bloggers say the person the history channel thoughtwas earhart - might be a man. earhart and noonan disappeared in 1937 as she was trying to become the first woman to fly around the world. pam and steve? (steve) congressman steve scalise is out of intensive care. scalise was released from i-c-u today...but remains hospitalized. you may remember last month kronfour reported that scalise was shot in the hip... when a gunman opened fire on a republican congressional baseball practice in virginia. he was first released from intensive care june 22nd following multiple surgeries, but was re-admitted to the i-c-u last week due to infection concerns. the congressional source says scalise is in serious condition.

my belly pain i could build a small city with all the over-the-counter products i've used. enough! i've tried enough laxatives to cover the eastern seaboard. i've climbed a mount everest of fiber. probiotics? enough! (avo) if you've had enough, tell your doctor what you've tried and how long you've been at it. linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children less than six, and it should not be given to children six to less than eighteen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess. ( steve ) today a congressional
committee met to find ways to fill the 6 million jobs u.s. employers cannot seem to fill -- even though the labor department says 7 million americans are unemployed. ( pam ) one suggestion .... is to expand paid parental leave. kron 4's washington corrspondent jessica smith... explains how that move would effect businesses ... and the workforce. diana furchtgott-rothmanhattan instituterep pat tiberi (r-oh) trt 1:29pkg university of michigan professor betsey stevenson told congress if us employers want to attract more workers -- they need to offer more programs, like paid family leave.stevenson: "research has shown that female labor participation would be 6 % points higher in the us if we had access to childcare and paid family leave that other countries have." stevenson went on to say paid leave would help the entire workforce -- not just women: stevenson: paid family leave policies creates better
attachment of women to the labor force and that greater attachment leads to greater wage growth, which increases overall participation. but not everyone on the panel agreed. "it basically raises the cost employment. we've already been decrying the lack of job opportunities. any mandated cost on employers, increases the move to technology. the substitution of technology for workers." stevenson told us, she believes paid leave can actually save employers money in the long run. stevenson: they're able to keep workers, they come back and they cut back on the recruitment costs, the heavy turnover cost. the committee chairman ohio congressman pat tiberi --- the said forcing employers to offer paid leave could hurt small business. tiberi: what we don't want to do is mandate on all employers additional regulations. even though he doesn't support a mandate -- tiberi said businesses should explore offering paid leave to be more competitive when recruiting talent. in washington, i'm jessica smith.
( pam ) here is a closer look now at the other side of the coin... the unemployment rate. nationwide... the rate for june came in at 4-point-4 percent. california is slightly higher at 4-point-7 percent. but when you take a look at the nine bay area counties... the job market is strong. every single county is below the national average on unemployment numbers.
