quarter mile from town and if they weren't able to stop it it would hit the town. at that point my husband and i started putting things in the car. >> my goodness. as a reporter i am assuming you covered the winter weather advisory before. what was it like being -- wildfires before, what was it like being a part of that. >> there is still stuff in my car because we don't know what is going to happen next. i was trying to help out with coverage but they knew i was concerned about getting my things out. i pulled together the things that you hope are in one place but are all over the house. just tried to get as much as i could gets in my car. >> video right now of the fire. one of your photographers took very impressive photos during the fire. especially of the structure protection.
can you tell us the story about the firefighters down there and how they saved that town. was it an air drop attack or all combined? >> i think it was a combination of all those things. i know we have a thousand firefighters from all areas. we have a small volunteer fire department in town. their priority was the town. and i think it was the fire break that they had brought in a bunch of bulldozers to create a safe area, south of town, to keep the fire from coming in to that ends of town. >> what is it like out there today? i know the work is still happening. 10% containment. 2,000 acres burned. what is it like out there today? >> it is really smoky right now. the winds picked up and they usually will go in two different directions during the day. this morning my car was covered
with ash and i live on the north side of town. although our town is small, only 1200 people. >> it is smoky. there is health advisories for folks who are sensitive to the air quality. and i think everyone is on edge waiting to see what happens next. they should release updated numbers later this evening. >> i know you said it is a small town but you have good shops down there, a lot of bay area residents stop there. has tourism been hit? >> i wouldn't say it is been hit too much. i think business is still doing well in town. there is a lot of support for businesses. >> glad you are safe and sound. continue the good work down there. >> thank you. the oakland raiders beat the ram during the first pre- season game. we heard it here on ktvu and

the game against the rams. what are his odds of making the team? >> reporter: he hashe -- he is going to make the team, it is about how much playing time and he has to stay healthy. if he can stay healthy and continue to improve, i think a lot of guys when they are drafted so young out of college they might not get an idea of what the nfl is about. he has a chance to see what it is about and recognize these opportunities don't come along that often. this is his third team in four years so he will want to prove himself and i expect him to be on the roster. how. he plays is up to him in the pre-season and health of the other people on the roster as well. >> a lot of raiders fans out

right? thursday. on thursday the 13th we had homicide. and our -- at first we had nothing. through their diligent work and follow up investigation they were able to obtain information on potential suspects. they have been following up on the leads and they obtained arrest warrants for murder on two suspects. the first suspect that was identified was involved in the first shooting. and that suspect was one of the individuals that we will release today, a photo of the suspect, as well as a video that will show that suspect inside the business with a hand gun. the suspect in last night's officer involved shooting was armed with an assault rifle. assault weapon. we have sense recovered that
weapon through a search warrant. the third suspect, and you will see an image, we have not identified him. he is wearing a mask and dark clothing. so we need additional information. our investigators are still doing follow up. we could use leads from the public regarding identifying the thirty individual, which is considered armed and dangerous. that person had a weapon. and you will be able to see things in the video. i want to talk too much about the outstanding suspect because i don't want to jeopardize the investigation. we are hoping this person rellizes it is in his -- realizes it is in his best interest to surrender. and let's just try to resolve this peacefully. and also we are trying to look

fires. help constructing hand line and containment areas as well as filling several roles within the base for support functions. >> i know the men and women are trained to begin with and then you add additional training, my concern would be if a fire game in over the next couple hunts as the wildfire season is start -- months as the wildfire season is starting, would they be prepare for that. you don't foresee them going on to the front lines in a fire like that? >> not typically. we use them to free our guys up. personnel up. to fill that active role. fire is a dynamic event. we proceed them the safety
training they need. typically we try to assign them to where the intensity is less or non-existent for support functions. >> extra boots on the ground will help. you have 12,000 firefighters right now in california battling 18 wildfires. how are they holding up, especially in situations like the rocky fire. how are they holding up as a hole? >> fairly well. it is not unusual for us to have an active fire season like this. it does take a toll physically and mentally. we have measures in place to try to get them a little r and r to get them refreshed. it is a thought in our minds to make sure our people are being
taken care of. >> cal fire chief, sorry for the interpretation earlier. thank you for all you do. appreciate it. >> thank you very much. our chief meteorologist bill martin. tracking the weather conditions out there. >> cooler today. numbers down 15 degrees in some places and that is making everybody happy. made me happy. no air conditioning on today. fog at the coast. there you see it. fog is going to be pushing inland into the evening hours and it will be in your neighborhood tonight and tomorrow morning. here is the fog foot print. there are breaks at the beach. the fog moved back in. you can see right in here. the golden gate park. the fog worked its way back in. it is coming back. right? right now temperatures, there they are. you can see you have upper 80s
