7:21 am
7:22 am
we have one to two fires a day and when you respond together and you put your lives on the line, you do have to surround yourself with experts. and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned. the things we do every single day that puts ourselves in harm's way, and

7:27 am
>> 32 tickets, and we had one 7. >> all right. >> frank does not get to buy the tickets next time. the powerball was 7. odds of winning 1 in 292 million. >> we were thinking about it. >> we were. >> i had already wrote the movie script. >> we are always convinced we will win. the last time someone won before that was in january. you can still take a big payout with the megamillions jackpot, $375 million. >> i will take the $3 we upon off the $64 and parlay it. it only takes one ticket. >> yeah, only one. >> let's see where it goes. >> nearly 7:30 on sunday. russia has been accused of hacking into the elections in the united states. >> now russia is making hacking accusations of their own, and millions of russians will choose their president today. we will tell you about what their election commission is

sunny start to the day, and we have a chilly start to the day as well, but we are drying out for your sunday funday, and i will look at the numbers expected for today, in the extended forecast and when the rain will arrive coming up. for all of us who find excuses not to work out, here's one woman who is putting everyone to shame. >> that's right. i caught up with a 92-year-old champion weight lifter from napa, and yes, she is setting the bar quite high for all of us. it is just an amazing thing to watch 92-year-old evelyn kilgor push her walker to get to her barbell before she gets set to start her lift. make no mistake, smiles and all, she is a force to be reckoned with. when did you go to your first weight lifting competition. >> monterey in 2013. >> reporter: how did you do? >> i was world champion. >> reporter: that's pretty good! >> world champion, state
7:47 am
champion, and national champion. >> reporter: she holds those records in the deadlift, requiring her to lift the barbell off the ground and stand up straight. >> reporter: what do you think of that lift? >> i can do it. it's hard on your back, but it is also making my back stronger. >> reporter: she grew up in the east bay and said she has stayed busessy for all her 9 -- busy for all of her 92 years. a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and she is setting the bar high. does your family work out with you? >> nope. >> reporter: the guy who got her into this, mike dayton holds plenty of records of his own, even guinness records. she retired in 1982 and had been walking, but after a fall, she was looking for other options. >> she was 75 years old, and she had never lifted a weight in her life.
7:48 am
she was worried she was getting older and her health was starting to go. >> reporter: he started her on the traditional gym workout but realized she had more to give. >> he came over, and i was growing big pumpkins, and i lifted them. >> reporter: you were already lifting pumpkins, why not lift weights? >> yeah. >> reporter: seems reasonable. her first competition was 17 years ago, to this day dayton says she has never failed a dead lift, and she says she doesn't really worry about how much weight is on that bar. >> i don't know, whatever mike puts on the bar. >> reporter: he puts it on, and you pick it up? can. >> evelyn is just one in a million. when she lifts at the meet, she walks up with the walker, and she lifts in the open women's class. it's not the handicapped class.
7:49 am
it's an age group and weight group, and she's all alone. >> reporter: all alone at the top of her game. cheri ablin is her training partner. >> first competition in chico i went to, i was the oldest woman at 55, and now we have women 82, in their 70s, and older lifting has gotten more popular since we have been bringing our name to the competition. it's fun. she encourages me, and i encourage her, and it's better than lifting by yourself. we can have fun, and then it makes it easier. >> reporter: she will be the first to tell you that at 92 she can't overdo it. >> i go mondays and thursdays, and that's all. >> reporter: whatever she is doing, it's working. at her last meet in chico, she was in the 90-95 age division, 181-pound weight class, and she did three lifts, the third 93.5
7:50 am
pounds, and she broke her own world record to establish a new one. she's the oldest woman to ever compete in an organized sanctioned weight lifting event. >> reporter: you're competing against yourself, and that's fierce competition, i'm guessing. >> yeah. >> reporter: and maybe the most common question she gets is the one we also had to ask her. everyone wants to know what the secret is. >> get up and move! that's my statement. >> she is actually part of a team called the napa senior team, and members include a 91- year-old man and other 80-year- old athletes, and the one they call the kid, she's 51. her coach says not everyone is going to want her to dead lift, and he says just walk. just walk and move. she's amazing. >> whenever you talk to seniors that are active, that's the number one thing, don't sit down.
7:51 am
get up and keep moving. had she lifted before? >> she was like i crochet, move around, and she had never done any kind of weight lifting, and she says walking is hard on my knee, but dead lift is strong on your back, so she can do both. i'm going to the gym today. >> yeah! it will be a good day to maybe get out and take a hike or go for a run. it's a cool one, a dry one, and we will have temperatures in the 50s around the bay area for the afternoon, and there's the view, and it's blue skies, and it's green, rolling hills, and we will be with dry conditions for today, tomorrow, and then, rain is here with the snow back in the forecast. here's the view of the temperatures right now, and we will take a look over the east bay, and you can see we do have cloud cover in some places, and in fact, we have got visibility issues due to fog over the north bay, valley, and coast,

8:05 am
for help. the battalion chief said the firefighter is expected to be okay. we don't know the extent of his injuries, but he was conscious, talking with his fellow firefighters as they transported him to the hospital. the fire chief says they don't know how the fire started, but it started around 7:30 last night. within 30 minutes it was a four- alarm fire meaning 40 strucks and 140 firefighters were battling the flames. the apartments were vacant, but five businesses on the ground floor were damaged in the fire. everyone escaped safely. none of the tenants or firefighters were hurt fighting the fire last night. >> first, just smoke, and then an inferno. it was terrifying. everyone left because it was terrifying. there were flames like 30 feet above the building. >> it's one of the most densely populated areas in the city.
8:06 am
that's why we have different stations at different angles to the north beach area. the first units were here within 2-3 minutes. >> reporter: this was the view from our camera across the bay in emeryville around sunset yesterday evening. because the building was vacant, no one was displaced in that building, but 14 residents who live in the building next door were vacated. firefighters are going to remain out here on fire watch, and that means they are looking out for hot spot, and when i spoke to the battalion chief he said the firefighter injured is expected to be okay. he was transported to the hospital and the other thing he mentioned, the arson investigators are not here yet, but they will be arriving later this morning. back to you guys. >> all right, allie rasmus reporting live from san francisco.
