things in the golf world got pretty interesting today. history made at the u.s. open. >> i think we're seeing a changing of the guard in golf this year. it's never been done in the modern golf era but 21-year-old jordan spieth is half way toward winning the grand slam. after taking the masters, spieth took the open. no shortage of drama in the find goal. he negotiates the tricky greens and makes the birdie to take the lead over brandon grace but a double bogie at 17th brought spieth back into a tie.
10:26 pm
dustin johnson at 17th. a three way tie at the top between spieth and osteisen. but now to the par 18th. spieth had that put for eagle. he takes birdie to complete a round of 16. in front by a point. gretsky is waiting at 18th. first he misses eagle then missed birdie coming back. johnson needs to make birdie to force the 18th play off. he three puts the championship goes to spieth. spieth has already made history by winning the masters and u.s. open at the age of 21. the third major of the year the british open gets going next month. the giants tonight with a chance to take over sole possession of first place in the national league west. instead saw history making the night for lincecum for all the
10:27 pm
wrong reasons. after the dodgers got a single run in the first they got to the giants for four more in the second. puig with a solid score for two. bruce bochy had seen enough. lincecum was removed after working just an inning and a third. his shortest inning in an outing in his career. adrian gonzalez had already hit one home run in the fourth and grandal hit that one of his own. that was his second. still more long ball. it's the fifth and it's turning taking one to straight away center in his third, 3-1/3 innings of work. pettitte gave up three of his own. and many spent the day with
10:28 pm
their dad at the ballpark. and base hit that scores sam foleman. one run already in and then ike davis hits this run to center. scores ben zobres. it's the longest rbi single you will ever see. the in the ninth they got the tieing run to deflect. it drives settles into the drive of foles. a combination of relief on the a's faces as they make it two out of three. and we'll see you later for the full edition. >> i saw one of the guests walk by. looking forward to hear from him. a golfer from cal.

see you then. and looking at water consumption. an area where residents are using double the amount of water than others. >> it's just fun just to walk up close to him. >> that's part of the reasons why california's biggest lakes has signs warning people to stay away from part of the lake. ♪ ♪

10:31 pm
there are new complaints about the water quality at clear lake. there are dead fish showing up and parts of the lake are covered with a smelly algae bloom. you may already know that clear lake is california's largest fresh water lake. tahoe is bigger but twice as far as nevada. >> it smells and the wind pushes it all down back to where i live. >> it kind of smells like fisherman's wharf down in san francisco. >> we're coming down to that season it's something that happens every year. >> reporter: the algae bloom is nothing unusual. the natural lake is very
10:32 pm
shallow averaging only about 20 feet. and when summer temperatures reach into the 100s, the shallow warm water explodes with plant life. the area that's impacted is relatively small compared today the over all size of the lake -- compared to the over all size of the lake. i would encourage people to get out into the water, and enjoy the water. it's beautiful. >> reporter: so we did. all you have to do is get out to the middle of the lake to get away from it. the lake county information officer took us on a tour. the middle of the lake was indeed clear but on the southeast side near the shore we found large areas covered with algae. one reason this year's algae may be worse than previous years is the heavy rain that fell last december. >> we got those massive rainstorms that made a huge wash off into the lake, run
10:33 pm
off. bringing more nutrients into the lake then we got hot. >> reporter: we also found several dead carp at the lake. samples have been taken to determine what caused the fish to die this year. locals say visitors to the lake may not realize the dead carp and algea bloom are not that unusual. >> i think they just don't understand the cycle. you live on a natural lake it cycles. it's just a very, very natural process. >> reporter: still warning signs have been posted at some beaches and parks tells visitors to steer clear of this bloom. >> it's disgusting. and i -- it's unhealthy. especially if i want to take my animals. >> when humans look at a bacteria bloom they say nasty. when kids see it, they say yum,
10:34 pm
yum let me go taste it, let me go drink it. so when people come to the lake instead of saying gross, they say look at the ecosystem. look at the life in it. this is part of a natural lake. >> a lake that may have an imagine problem that local leaders are trying to fix. as we mentioned while you can avoid the algae by taking a boat away from shore some lakegoers say that doesn't help them if they don't have a boat. there's an effort to clean up the lakes and beaches. school may be out but the school district will continue a summer meal program. about 80% of students qualify for the national school lunch program. they receive breakfast, lunch, snack and a dinner at no cost. now if it weren't for this program, many of those kids would not have access to consistent nutritious meals during the summer months. firefighters in the south bay are trying to figure out
10:35 pm
what caused an explosive house fire earlier this evening. crews responded to a home in encinitas. the home as you can see was engulfed in flames when several explosions were heard. the space had been vacant for two years and was being used for storage. the explosions were believed to have been caused by propane tanks. no injuries were reported. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. high income families are using a lot more water than working class families during the state's continuing drought. the contra costa times looked at just how much water the average household uses in 16 cities served by the east bay municipal utility district. the families in san leandro used the least. 65-gallons per person per day. that's just 16% of the amount used in wealthy neighborhoods. the pattern of wealthier households using more water holds across the state.
10:36 pm
oakland uses an average of 57- gallons per person per day. neighboring piedmont averages 410-gallons. the average in pleasant hill it's 79-gallons. walnut creek averages 125- gallons per person per day. it may be hard to believe during the drought, but one bay area city is offering water that's absolutely free. >> this is my rose bush right here. >> reporter: sonia osbourne loves her outdoor rose garden. >> the first thing i look at in the morning when i wake up. then every night when the sun goes down. >> reporter: but the roses and the drought are at odds. >> i don't want my roses to die. >> reporter: but osbourne found a solution, where residents can fill containers with recycled
10:37 pm
water. perfect for watering their plants. the recycled water starts out as sewage then it's treated with chemicals filtered and comes out ready for residents to use but only for irrigation. >> i think it can be a big help. we live in a very arid climate and getting it out to the public is important. >> reporter: that's over a ton of water. but that's really just a drop in the preverbial bucket. the city recycles thousands of gallon as -- gallons a day. and since it has to go some where it might as well go to someone's garden. >> i'm going to irrigate my lawn. >> reporter: in brentwood, rob roth, ktvu fox 2 news. and here's yet another sign of the drought.
10:38 pm
water levels at fulsome lake have dropped so low that boaters who rent slips there had to remove them this weekend. now in normal years the boats could stay docked through september. but the water level is so low at 414 feet the owners could no longer leave the boats in the water no more. >> i'm going to really miss coming out and taking the kids and wade boarding and enjoying the afternoons. i guess we'll have to find another hobby for the rest of the summer. >> many people are hoping the water level will remain above 400 feet for a little bit longer at least for the july 4 holiday. the speed limit in fulsome lake will drop to only five-miles- per-hour after that. and that of course is way too slow for water skiing. it jumped into the movies with big hits like toy story. pixar's latest creation just hit theaters this weekend. coming up we'll take a trip to
10:39 pm
the company's bay area studios to find out how they create hit movie after hit movie. >> a live look at the oakland ports. when the 90s are expected to return this week.
