4:07 pm
look at this. the blanket of smoke from the fire is so big it can be seen from nearly 200 miles away in reno. this was the view, lack of a view at the city airport earlier this morning. >> that is something. let's bring in chief meteorologist bill martin. rob showed us how dry the brush is. how bad are the winds ? >> not bad at all. they are relatively light. they were heavy the other night. right now, they are blowing at 8 miles per hour. 40,000 acres -- golden gate park is exactly 1000 acres it is 40 times that. manhattan is 15,000 acres. just to give you an idea of the scope of this fire. we were commenting on how quickly it doubled and tripled in size. heather and i were talking on the brake when firefighters have said we have not seen anything like this. the combination of fuels, wind, temperatures and humidity and
4:08 pm
terrain. we have not seen something like this. in explaining the rapid growth. one thing i have noted, is you are in the foothill region. with the temperatures and the trend, you're getting 100 degrees tahoe does not get to 100 degrees. down here, it is lower and dryer. it is transitioning into pines. give dry oaks in the dry brush. it is so dry and it goes off. it moves and then you see pine trees. you have different fuels and they react to friendly. it throws firefighters for a loop. it makes it difficult to fight fire. the humidity is 15 percent. winds at eight . in the zone, and 92 degrees. you can see what i was talking about. basically, you are in the transition zone. just coming off 49. 3000 through 4000 feet, you have oaks and dry brush. temperatures to drop off --
4:09 pm
actually warmed up a couple of degrees. we did have a cool down. the fire zone getting a slight rake. not much. i would say this fire is being driven not so much by the weather, but by the terrain and the fuel. the transition zone. also, go back to a couple of days ago, when we had near record heat we had a heat advisory. everything is prime to pop. although it is not amazingly crazy hot in the zone, it was three days ago. that is where we are. this fire, the terrain is a tough sell for cal fire to get in and fight it. the terrain, fuel and whether -- it is california in july. when we come back, we'll talk about whether. we will keep on the fire. it is the big story. stay with trent three and for continued coverage of the detwiler fire. >> you can follow us anytime on twitter, facebook and other

meeting. reporter: the president asking senators not to leave for august recess without first putting a new healthcare bill on his desk >> i am sitting in the office. i have pen in hand. you never had that before. reporter: next week, the senates will be making a procedural vote on that legislation. that would repeal obamacare now, but replace it later. frank ? >> lauren blanchard in the nation's capital. narrowing the wage gap between men and women. what employees and one no longer be able to ask once the city lot was signed today. the search continues for the owner of a well-known oyster company, who fell out of his boat yesterday details on that story coming up after the break with new information and that homicide investigation underway in alameda county. including more on the shocking moments that the shooting took place. more life coverage when we come

4:19 pm
a man. no age given at this point. we have a crew at the scene. we are trying to find out more about what happened to possible motive or any suspect information. we will go live, coming up on afternoon news at 5 pm. searchers in marion county spent the day looking for a 70- year-old man who fell from his boat yesterday afternoon friends say the man who went missing is the owner of a well- known oyster company. alex savage is live with more. reporter: boats and jet skis were in the water as the search continues for todd friend, who fell from his motorboat into the waters of tomales bay yesterday afternoon. he was on his way back from a trip to plant oyster seeds. fellow boaters saw him go overboard i called 911 for help. he was wearing waders when he went into the water and he did not have a life jacket on. searchers eventually found his boat empty and going in

4:21 pm
survivability. reporter: event that it has now been a full day since frank went into the water, the marion county sheriff's office says it is now officially a recovery operation. near tamales bay, alex -- alex savidge . san francisco mayor atley filed -- and lee filed a pay equity law bans employees -- employers from asking employees what they made in their last job. a senior staff attorney is with us. why is this law needed ? >> this law is needed because despite the fact that we have had equal pay laws on the books for decades, women continue to earn less than men in every sector and job occupation. women feel the effects of wage asperity across the board. the gap a pay between men and
4:22 pm
women cost california billions of dollars a year. which not only harms women, but also families in the overall economy. this ordinance that prohibits the practice that perpetuates that pay disparity is critical at this point. >> i apply for a new job. i go in and they say, what you currently make ? what have you made in the past ? by eliminating those questions, what you hope it will do ? >> research shows that women earn less than men starting when you're out of college. that applies to mba and occupations. women begin their careers starting at a wage disparity from their male colleagues. when employers base salary offers up our salaries, it perpetuates the gap. and it will impound over the course of a lifetime. >> if you start out underpaid, it will continue with an equity. >> this prohibition from an employer asking about past salaries, basically stopped the
4:23 pm
perpetuation of the wage gap. it requires an employer to offer a wage they believe employees are entitled to based on the job >> it takes up the disadvantage from the get go. does this apply to all companies in san francisco ? >> yes, all companies. public and private. it also applies to employers who have contracts with the city. and their agents. >> what about -- you see this having a ripple effect. across the country and affecting other companies. if i am an employer and i want to do this in san francisco , will i have one job application process ? the hope is i will make this companywide. >> it is a growing momentum. we have already seen prohibitions past and other cities and states. i do believe you will continue to grow. ssa for that reason, -- precisely for that reason, they will want conformity throughout their offices. it will make sense to
4:24 pm
incorporate these practices throughout their offices >> jessica, this takes effect in january ? >> it takes effect july 2018. >> thanks for coming in. we are hours away from finding out whether or not o.j. simpson will be released from state prison in nevada. i will show you the preparations underway right now in carson city.
4:25 pm
4:26 pm
4:27 pm
o.j. simpson's parole hearing is tomorrow morning. he was sentenced for 9 through 30 years for armed robbery in 2007. >> that was when he burst throughout las vegas hotel room door demanding the return of sports memorabilia. ken wayne is live in carson city, nevada. reporter: heather and frank it is hot, windy and smoky in carson city. all the smoke coming from the fires in the sierra. that is not why everybody is here. it is because of the o.j. simpson case. if you recall back in the 90s, all the media got together in one encampment, known as camp oj. it is not as big as it was in los angeles in carson city, there is a lot of interest though. here are pictures we shot a short time ago of people setting up with press from as far away as the united kingdom. on hand to find out what happens tomorrow. national news media is here
4:28 pm
from the major networks and sports networks. tv stations from los angeles in the bay area and across los angeles. they want to find out what the parole commission will decide. we talked to carson city sheriff is a short time ago. to get his reaction to the attention. >> most of the attention is being focused right now, up to this point on the media coverage. obviously from around the world. people are interested for their own reasons. from a local standpoint, tomorrow's event or thursday afternoon event, has been well programmed. so we can facilitate the most amount of information to everybody who is interested. obviously, we are a little bit constrained by space. the media coming in, is facilitating that information.
4:29 pm
reporter: because it will be widely disseminated, just about anyone can get the information on what is happening inside the parole commission hearing. it starts at 10 am tomorrow. they will take testimony from o.j. simpson over a video link from the state prison in lovelock in nevada. 90 miles east of reno. after that is finished, they will go behind closed doors. they can meet for as long as 30 minutes. they will come out to take a public vote on whether or not o.j. simpson should be granted parole. if it is you not to -- unanimous, they allow parole. he could be out as soon as october 1. if they deny parole, it will be 3 more years before o.j. simpson gets another chance at being set free. frank, heather ? >> will only be o.j. simpson being asked questions ? will they bring in attorneys ? reporter: he has the option of having people testify on his behalf. we do not know if that will happen. last time he was up for parole, my understanding was he testified on his own.
4:30 pm
the victims in the case, also have the option of having testimony provided. right now, it is not clear if anyone will speak. our understanding is o.j. simpson will speak tomorrow. >> ken, i am curious. lovelock prison is not far from where you are. why would they not drive him up to be in the parole hearing in person. as opposed to video. reporter: i think it is logistical. the cost of transporting a prisoner, 90 miles -- it is a distance. you have to go through security of getting an inmate on a bus and transporting them. i think it is easier with the technology to put a camera in front of them at the state prison. you can see and hear them. see what they have to say. and get the emotion from the voice. it is almost as if they are there in person. >> so much interest in this parole hearing. ken wayne, live in nevada.
4:31 pm
>> the o.j. simpson parole hearing is the subject of our question of the day. we have been asking if you think he should be paroled tomorrow ? 65 percent of people who responded to say no. you can weigh in on our facebook and twitter pages. >> ken wayne will attend the parole hearing tomorrow in carson city. we will ring you complete coverage starting tomorrow on mornings on 2 dij. watch the entire coverage tomorrow starting at 10 am. we will bring you the decision live. city college of san francisco seems to be on the upswing. enrollment is at a ten-year high after years of legal battles and controversy. to come, we'll talk with supervisor jane kim about the spike. we will continue coverage of the large wildfire in mariposa county we will talk with cal fire about their strategy. the bay area choice for news on the go. tran three fox 2

4:35 pm
san francisco near yosemite national park here in california. and is burned through 20,000 acres so far. less than 10 percent contained. >> we cannot emphasize enough how active and erratic this fire activity is. especially with this fire. it is stuff we have not seen before. reporter: yosemite remains open for now. the fire has forced many to evacuate. among the met -- hardest hit is mariposa. 2000 people are under mandatory evacuation orders. after the fire burned eight structures and threatened 1500 homes. governor jerry brown declared an emergency, declaring state resources out to help with evacuation. >> it is slowly crawling down the mountain. >> everybody is scared. you never think something like this will happen in your town. reporter: the fires quick spread is being blamed on tallgrass heavy winter rains. it is fueling wildfires throughout the west and canada 40,000 evacuated their. canadian resources stretched so thin they have asked for help from australia. >> the community around the
4:36 pm
world is tightknit. if we can help in a time of need, we would like to do so. reporter: wildfires are driven by weather usually. lower temperatures and some moisture in the southwest and the rockies is good. on the flipside, storms bring lightning and it causes more fires. to date, more fires and more acres burned then in the last six years. in los angeles, wayne legion. >> for more on the massive fire, we are joined by cal fire public information captain, jordan. what is your biggest concern right now ? >> the biggest concern frank, is how fast the fire is burning. the fire is spreading primarily to the south into the east. it is spreading and spotting in a way we have not seen in the last seven years. >> when you say it is spreading in a way you have not seen, what does that mean ? >> at the rate it is spreading.
4:37 pm
we have seen it grow many thousands of acres per day over the last several days. >> captain, i was listening to another firefighter today. he was saying that it is so aggressive and erratic. it is problematic to fight talk to us about what the strategy is. when you are dealing with the fire with such strange and erratic behavior. how do you adjust the strategy ? >> our number one strategy is to protect life and property. that is always our goal. to put the fire out, take a weight risk to life and property. when the fire is burning so fast, we are working with the sheriffs on evacuations. we are protecting structures with engine crews and bulldozers and hand crews. we are attacking the fire where we can. where he gives us opportunities. such as when it reaches the top of a ridge and we are able to put in retardant lines to stop the fire spread before it goes over the back of the next ridge. there are places where that
4:38 pm
fire naturally slows down. top of ridges and at night we are attacking the fire at night. >> i know you have a massive response and there are thousands of people who have been evacuated 1500 structures threatened. how close is the fire to the community of mariposa ? and how concerned are you that it could reach mariposa ? >> last night the fire reached as close as three quarters of a mile of the northwest side of town. the fire crossed the ridge, just as the sun was setting. fire behavior at night was decreased last night. and helped us to attack the fire. as it slowly burned down the mountain. the fire is burning around mariposa at this point. around the west side of town. and toward the south side, as the fire continues to burn in a general southeast direction. >> captain, we have seen a number of bay area fired departments and crews that way. can you tell us if you plan to bring in more resources ? will you bring in resources from outside the state ? >> if the fire burns more
4:39 pm
toward the national park boundary of yosemite national park, there will be out-of- state resources to come with the u. s. forest service. we have fire departments from all up and down the state, as part of the mutual agreement. should conditions continue down this road, for the next several weeks, we are not expecting that. if they do, it would not be out of the question. >> 45,000 acres right now. how much bigger do you think this fire is going to get, before it is contained ? you are at seven percent now. >> correct, the only figure we have is our forecasters predicting we will have the fire 100 percent contained by august 5. >> by august 5. still a couple of weeks away. >> correct. >> we appreciate your time captain, to update us on that detweiler fire. which is continuing to spread and doubled in size overnight.
4:40 pm

4:44 pm
a lot of people excited and interested about city college. and taking the impediment of tuition away is showcasing the demand for higher education. >> this is indeed, a sharp turnaround. the student population had declined by 80 percent since 2012. as most people know, that is when the college began battling its accreditation. when you talk about a 17 percent increase, do you know how many students that is ? and how many people have benefited from this tuition free plan ? >> i cannot tell you the exact number of san francisco residents that will be benefiting from free community college, but we do know that the average person from san francisco makes $11,000 more when they get a degree from city college then versus a diploma. this program is about increasing the economic means of our everyday residence in a city that has become increasingly expensive. and seeing in increasing income
4:45 pm
gap. >> how big of a role do you think the fact that tuition is free for san francisco residents -- how big of a factor do you think that is, in a spike we are seen in enrollment ? >> i think you have to look at the number. we have been seeing declining enrollment every year since 2012. the first year ever, since we introduced free city college, we have seen a 17 percent jump in the residence of san francisco who want to apply and enroll in city college. etiquette is great. community college is a resource that to be there for everyone. i truly believe it should be free across the college -- country. i am excited that san francisco is a city in the nation to make it free. regardless of age, income or gpa. >> i think we can all see the benefit for students. talk a little bit about what this does for the college. and its standing and viability >> this is certainly several million dollars for a boost in
4:46 pm
funding. for city college. and for every student that enrolls, it is increased subsidies to city college. i do not have the exact numbers. city college will be seen highly increased revenues this year. due to the enrollment increase. >> a final question. there were people critical of the amount of money spent on this. no doubt about the investment. $5.4 million for the next 2 years. what do you say to the critics ? >> we went to the voters and we found new revenue to fund city college we are not dipping into any existing general funds to pay for the students that attend city college. we put a luxury real estate tax on the ballot last year. saying that we have a crazy luxury market and san francisco. want the wealthy to contribute a little bit , to make san francisco more affordable for everyone. this tax revenue measure has
4:47 pm
brought in over $20 million, just in the last six months. i think that we are actually bringing more dollars to the city that we will spend on free city college next year. >> supervisor jane kim. >> thanks for having me. chief meteorologist bill martin. you can see supervisor jane kim asking in the glow a pretty nice day. >> in the glow of the city college. the junior-college system for uc -- it started as a way for everyone to go to school and have a uber -- opportunity to go to uc. if you go to a jc, it is still this way. you can transfer into university of california or ucla. it goes?. they take good care of you. the system was put together is the first of its kind uc system putting junior-college in place. anytime you try to educate the masses, you are saying if you
