a wildfire burns out of control for a second night in the cajon pass in southern california. fire crews say they have been overwhelmed but for the first time there also gaining a foothold and now report 4% containment. good evening, everyone. i'm frank somerville. >> and i'm julie haener. here's a live picture of the flames right now. dark out there from our media partners in southern california, the fire is called
the blue cut fire and has been going strong for 36 hours. the latest numbers show 25,000 acres have burned, fire crews are trying to assess the property damage but a number of homes have been lost. >> here is video from earlier this evening before it got dark. firefighters said there was nothing they could have done to stop the advancing claims. the local battalion chief in san bernardino told the l.a. times, we got our butts kicked. another said they were no match for the combination of wind, dry vegetation and steep terrain. tens of thousands of people in the area have been ordered to evacuate. some of them won't have homes to return to. >> it was devastating. a lot of homes lost yesterday. there will be a lot of families that come home to nothing. >> we want to show you where this fire is burning using data from cal fire. we created a map showing the
fire's perimeter. you can see it burned on both sides of interstate 15 north of the cajon pass. and west toward highway 138 and the resort town of wrightwood. for the latest on this developing news, we go to ktvu's ted rowland in wrightwood now which is in the middle of the firefight. ted? >> reporter: frank and julie, that fire fight continues tonight. you can see how much fire they are dealing with, up on this hillside. and then down in here, flames very active, the wind has been swirling throughout the evening but they have cut a dozer line here, i don't know if you can see but this area here has been basically where they are making their stand. this is where firefighters are here and at the ready in case these flames move, they are doing their best to save homes which are about 300 yards away. as flames devour the dry hillside terrain firefighters from across the region are battling to save as many homes as possible. >> what's your biggest concern tonight? >> the biggest concern is going
to be the wind. we're not expect any heavy winds to materialize. but up in the mountains lots of times they do come up. >> reporter: directly in the path of the fire is the ski town of wrightwood. throughout the bay as the flames moved closer and closer, more and more people started evacuating. >> this morning it got worse and worse. all the fire and everything. started getting sicker and sicker. so we packed up the necessities and started walking out. we couldn't bring the car in. >> it's coming down the ridge. >> reporter: mike richardson and his family decided to wait it out but they are packed and ready to go. >> yeah. going to stick it out and hopefully we'll be out of here if we have to, if not we'll stay. >> reporter: what do you have? >> clothes, photos, things that are expensive. >> reporter: the fire which started tuesday morning exploded inside overnight leaving behind a 47 square mile path of destruction.
>> in my 40 years i've never seen fire behavior so extreme as it was yesterday. >> reporter: unclear how many homes have been lost, firefighters are warning people to prepare for the worst. and those folks in wrightwood are hoping that they will get a good news. it all depends on the weather at this point tonight. the winds are calm and firefighters are confident they'll be able to save those homes in wrightwood. frank and julie? >> that is certainly great news. we'll talk to you again in 30 minutes. some bay area firefighters are among those heading to san bernardino county. santa clara county fire officials tell us two strike teams were reassigned from the clayton fire up in lake county to the blue cut fire down south in san bernardino county. the firefighters come from several different agencies in the south bay. santa clara county fire department also has sent a firefighter medic to san bernardino. >> reporter: nan to the man accused of setting the clayton
fire. today, 40-year-old damin pashilk was charged with 14 counts of arson. also drug charges. ktvu's henry lee tells us the former construction worker fainted before he appeared in front of a judge in lakeport. >> reporter: damin pashilk passed out and needed some water. when he walked in he turned away from news cameras and kept his face down. investigators say pashilk started 11 smaller fires as well as a huge clayton fire that has destroyed nearly 200 homes and burned thousands of acres. >> we are confident this is our guy. serial arsonist. alleged. the year-long investigation will prove that. >> reporter: authorities will not say how they identified pashilk but they did say they were staking him out long before the clayton fire and that they never caught him in the act. >> i want to make sure it's understood that if any of our investigators had seen him start a fire, he would have been arrested. >> reporter: they couldn't
arrest him immediately without proof. >> if you take your shot too soon, you jeopardize bring someone to justice who truly needs to be brought to justice. >> reporter: he lost his own home in a fire in 2013. but it's unclear why he allegedly set a string of fires back a year. >> if i knew what the motivation would be, i would be a psychologist writing books. >> reporter: pashilk's attorney rest -- urged the public not to rush to judgment. >> it's important the public remember that during the course of these proceedings. >> reporter: the defendant worked as an inmate firefighter but never worked a fire line. he did not enter a plea and will be back in court in three weeks. his bail is set at $5 million. in lake county, henry lee, ktvu fox 2 news. we learned today the damage from the clayton fire up in lake county is much worse than first thought. tonight cal fire said 268 structures burned in that fire
that started on saturday. including 175 homes and eight commercial buildings. prior to that they had set a total of 175 structures. so you can see the number has gone way up. the fire south of clearlake is now 50% contained and some evacuation orders were lifted today in the community of lower lake. also learning another wildfire last year that burned 43 homes in lake, napa and yolo counties is linked to an illegal war marijuana grow. cal fire said the cause was a faulty water heater but today authorities said that water heater was actually strapped to a tree near where about 100 marijuana plants were being grown. we have heard from people who refused to comply when fire officials issued evacuation orders. some would rather take a chance and stay behind to try to protect their property. new at 10:00, ktvu's jana katsuyama is live at the cal fire station in napa. she explains why deciding whether to follow evacuation orders can be a difficult
decision. jana? >> reporter: very difficult, julie. talking about a lot of people who spend their lives building homes or putting into this property but really, it comes down to a split decision. do you stay or go? cal fire officials say it could be deadly if you do stay. especially this year. mandatory evacuation orders have sent thousands of people fleeing from fast-moving wildfire from lake county down to san bernardino county. not everyone follows those orders in deciding whether to stay. or go. in lake county one man said he saved his home by staying to protect his property, he used a tractor to dig fire lines around his property. not uncommon in this rural area. >> the reason i stayed is the reason we're still here. as far as we didn't burn, it went around us. >> reporter: his backup plan, jumping in his pool. but that could be fails -- fatal. >> the pool may be a safe area
where it's not going to burn, but the air around is superheated from all the gas from the fire and you still have to breathe. a lot of times those superheated gases have significant damage to your lungs. >> reporter: the chief says he understands people want to protect their property but he and other veteran firefighters say the wildfires this year are explosive and more unpredictable than they've ever seen. >> if they stay and wait, it may be too late. we not -- may not be able to get to them to rescue them. >> reporter: if people do stay and need assistance, it can take valuable crews from the frontlines. >> then we have to redirect resources away from actually putting the fire out. and have to go in and try to affect the rescue. >> reporter: six firefighters were trapped in their southern california blue cut fire while trying to protect residence of one home refused to leave. right now every crew counts. in a state where cal fire officials say there have been 100 more wildfires this year
than the same time last year. and ignoring evacuation orders until the last minute would make it impossible to escape. >> the smoke may obscure your vision to where you can see the road anymore. because of the sudden win shift. a lot of different things that really could take your one route or the route you always know as your safe way and compromise new people -- and compromise it. >> reporter: in california there is no law making it mandatory to follow evacuation orders. it is a judgment call. one which cal fire officials say they hope people will give a great deal of thought. >> important things to think about as we are in the height of fire season. jana, thank you. our wildfire coverage continues at ktvu.com. you'll find updates on all the fires burning as well as resources to help fire victims in lake county. strike a rail bridge in the south bay up in flames and two other fires burning nearby at

no, only this rental van parked on adeline was hit by bullets. but that was sheer luck on a street as heavily traveled as this one. >> there were people on foot in the neighborhood, also people in the houses. antioch, i a lot of very frightened -- and yeah, very brazen, dangerous act. which is why we're asking for the public's help. >> reporter: this case is brand- new but investigators need tips on that car and that gunman. the two says that -- sedans sped away north toward oakland, longline gone by the time police arrived. live in emeryville, debora villalon, ktvu fox 2 news. a millbrae middle school teacher was arrested after police received a report about an inappropriate relationship with a minor. police found 40-year-old heather butts sitting in a car with a girl on monday. they say further investigations revealed an inappropriate relationship. they serve a warrant at her home today and arrested the teacher on charges of lewd and lascivious acts involving a

both departments tell me they are stocking up reserve engines but they haven't reduced their level of service. sky fox capturing this train trestle on fire this afternoon, the smoke to be seen for miles, fire officials say it started in a creek bed near a homeless encampment. >> i was pretty surprised. i was in shock. i've never seen claims like that. >> what we have here is a heavy structure. so it's going to put out a high- volume fire and burn hot. and also because of that, very toxic cloud of smoke. >> reporter: treated with creosote setting chemicals in the air and assisted living facility, firefighters couldn't use foam since this is a protected waterway. >> most of the cal fire units and most of the local government agents we work with right now are running a few engines short. >> reporter: that fire happening as cal fire putout this grass fire in south san jose forcing 100 acres, tying up the evening commute on
highway 101. sky fox was also overhead this vegetation fire near the s.a.p. center. the fire is happening as strike teams are reassigned to the san bernardino fire following the clayton fire in lake county. san jose fire tells me 15 firefighters are part of teams deployed. now backfilling the department. cal fire facing longer response times. >> with all the other fires going on, all of the activity, the tigers that we normally get at hollister were committed to other incidents. >> reporter: all the more reason for residents to be extra cautious this time of year. and the ridge that caught fire is an abandoned use in -- union pacific railroad track. they tell me they plan to build a whole new infrastructure when part expense to san jose. because of all three fires is still under investigation. >> azenith smith, thank you.
we've got fog moving inland, going to be a warm day tomorrow. like today a little warmer. air quality district has seen fit to issue a spare the air day for tomorrow. didn't have one today but we got one from our -- tomorrow. in all of san francisco, san bruno fog, san rafael fog moving in. now obviously in oakland, moraga out towards hayward, but you get the idea, east bay hills are blocking that fog bank so inland valleys are going to have a little less fog than they might have this morning. that means quicker burn off and warmer day. sixty-five in fairfield, 68 in livermore, right now temperatures, look for in the belly temperatures with fog burning off quickly to make it easily into the mid-90s, low 90s, mid-90s, something like that. forecast tomorrow morning, here come the temptress, fog burns off, right back to the coast, the purples are one hundreds. you see those are kind of getting shunted to the east a little bit. there has been cooler impact, but also see those 90s, of our
inland bay valley, there's your tomorrow tempter footprint, as we push forward tomorrow probably the warmest day of the week or similar to today, temperatures will trend down. we'll talk about that and the fire conditions in northern and southern california. cruise on the scene of a water main break in lafayette tonight. a four-inch residential water line ruptured just after five this evening sending water flowing down mount diablo boulevard. the pipeline dates back to 1936. east bay mud tells us it appears the pipe broke because of old age. hoping to have service restored before midnight. donald trump chick -- shakes of his campaign again. the second overhaul in as many months as the candidate faces sagging poll numbers. where -- were ryan lochte and his teammates robbed or not? two swimmers are pulled off the flight home. the same physical giants go

and it's lasted for a month. >> hard to explain right now. it really is. everything the season there comes a day, a series, a week, a month where you can't gather yourself. then you put it all back together. the giants have been stuck since the all-star break. >> it's been accommodation of things. when you are hitting, you're not pitching and when you're pitching, you're not hitting. we had both. >> reporter: the truth is the team has struggled in every aspect of the game. although, to their credit, you wouldn't know it from the clubhouse demeanor. >> i wouldn't say anybody in here is pressing. we show up in a good mood. >> i've been impressed, they stay up for every game. their focus is on what they've got to do today. >> reporter: which is after all exactly what you'd expect from a team that has won three championships this decade.
even the new guy has recognized the aura of success. >> it's cool to see all the stuff and then you talk to the guys that have been there, done that, must be a great feeling to lift that trophy. bro, listen, it's unbelievable. >> we understand the time of the season we read also. not a time to let up on the gas pedal so to speak. >> first base, caught, that is a triple play. >> reporter: they need to floor it. and soon. because ebbs and flows are fine but an august freefall is not. >> nowhere the way to say it. it's time to play better baseball right now. the math is going to run out on you. >> reporter: looking for a glass half-full perspective, you can start with the law of averages. this team is way too talented to remain in this funk much longer. and then there's the schedule which softens up quite a bit. the lone exception, three games at the dodgers next week. at at&t park, scott reiss, ktvu fox 2 news. the questions about claims by olympic swimmer ryan lochte
that he and three teammates were robbed at gunpoint in rio de janeiro. tonight, two u.s. swimmers were actually pulled off their flight to the united states for questioning. lochte claimed the group was returning from a party in a taxi when they were robbed on sunday at gunpoint. this security footage obtained by the daily mail shows the man apparently carrying valuables into the olympic village after they were reportedly robbed. a judge in brazil ordered lochte's passport seized but he is already back in the united states. another swimmer is also reportedly being detained. there is word they won't be allowed to leave brazil until they testify. an author at just 19. how a self-made teenager's turning life lessons and family dynamics into a book to try to help others. live on the front lines of the fire fight in san bernardino county, trying to say the ski town -- trying to save the ski town.
back now to developing story from san bernardino county where a wildfire is threatening some 30,000 homes. these are pictures here from the blue cut fire burning in san bernardino county. the good news if there is any is that the winds are lighter tonight and that fire crews now have the fire 4% contained up from 0% earlier today. ted rowlands joins us again in the community of white wood which is one of the areas under mandatory evacuation orders. ted? >> reporter: julie and frank, you can see the firefight does continue at this hour. this hillside just about 90 minutes ago was completely lit up. that forced a number of fire engines into this area. it was a furious fight.
they had water on it, they were able to keep it on the hillside in part because mother nature helped out and the winds kept it at bay. they also had this dozer line. you can see where bulldozers got rid of a lot of the fuel. but you do see some of the fuel left. but dry it is. this is the problem. why this fire just took off yesterday and engulfed so many acres. and sadly, so many homes. we don't have a number of how many homes have been lost. because of the fight. officials do say that because of the intensity of the blaze, people that were evacuated yesterday many of them quote, will be coming home very disappointed to find they will have almost nothing. you can see on both sides of this hillside there's still active flames right now, firefighters are watching it. the good news is that the wind at this point is down. so that's good news. but still, nobody is letting up
because one big gust of wind and these embers can break the fire line. >> how far away are you from the small town of wildwood that's been evacuated and how close are the flames to some homes in that area? >> reporter: there are homes literally 300 yards from where we are right now. a few of them. and then they go up into a hillside. so that's the main concern. in those homes right now every driveway there is a fire truck. monitoring it and going to do their best to save those homes. the time is about a quarter- mile from here. so it would take a real shift in the weather to threaten the whole town. which is what the firefighters thought was going to happen earlier today. when this fire was pushing towards it but again the wins did help them out and at this point, while not counting their chickens by any stretch, they are optimistic that at this point the town should be safe. >> ted, you covered a lot of
fires, a lot of wildfires. how does this one compared to others you've seen? >> reporter: well, simply enormous. and it is on different fronts and the way that it moves so quickly is incredible. to hear firefighters -- one said he has been in business for 40 years and this is the most intense fire he's ever seen. another firefighter said it kicked our butt last night. for me, it's one of the largest fires i've ever covered. definitely the most ferocious. when you hear firefighters with that kind of experience, the basically saying they haven't seen anything like it, really makes you pause. the good news is that today was much different than yesterday which was so hellacious. >> ted rowlands where the fire is still burning out of control but at least they do have 4% containment, for the longest time they didn't have any at all. the winds have subsided. ted, thank you. republican presidential
nominee donald trump is a shaking of senior management of his campaign and putting paul manafort on the sidelines. trump is making changes as he likes behind in the polls just 12 weeks from election day. he announced conservative breitbart news boss steven baron would serve as chief executive. longtime gop pollster kelly and conway as campaign manager. >> i think this is a campaign structure that looks like it's been built to allow donald trump to continue being donald trump just more effectively than he has been the last few weeks. >> hillary clinton was campaigning in ohio this afternoon. the democratic nominee painted trump's economic plan as favoring the wealthy while leaving the little guy behind. georgia congressman john lewis was in san francisco today. on a book tour and attended a luncheon promoting the third book in his graphic novel trilogy. the book is called much. it details lewis' upbringing in alabama as the son of sharecroppers. to his rise as a civil rights
