7:02 am
overnight. take a look at this map. we now have 61 uncontained large fires in 15 western states. it's an emergency. >> and the worst of the fires, the so-called carr fire in northern california is now growing and claiming more lives. there are reports three more people have been killed. a great-grandmother and two children. and more than a dozen people are reported missing. >> and we're also getting a better sense of the physical destruction here. in this neighborhood, house after house reduced to rubble. the effort to contain the fires taking a toll. these exhausted firefighters taking a break on the lawn of a house they're trying to protect. >> there are some hopeful moments, too. look at this. these officers saving a fawn abandoned by its mother. but overall, this is an extremely dangerous situation. especially with the heat showing no signs of relenting. we have team coverage and we start with rob on the front lines in redding, california. rob, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning, dan. well, whit said it.
7:03 am
containment. such a huge struggle with this massive fire, 83,000 acres burned. and still only 5% containment. behind me, look at this. the destruction is unimaginable. this is just 3 of the over 500 homes and businesses completely destroyed. and then yesterday, as you mentioned, the grim discovery of three people, civilians who have perished in the fire. all the while, now, there are new fires burning across the state. >> get back! >> reporter: this morning, more wildfires roaring across california. forcing more mandatory evacuations. south of redding, another blaze igniting in napa county. it's a race against time as residents are forced to flee their homes. >> i've never seen it like this before. it's just, here we go again. >> reporter: the governor of california and the president declaring a state of emergency. authorities warning residents in redding to, quote, get out with your life. >> you cannot predict where this fire is going next. >> reporter: the unstoppable
7:04 am
carr fire torching over 80,000 acres, taking down over 530 structures, and putting almost 5,000 more at risk. high temperatures, intense winds, and heavy smoke creating vortices throughout the fire zone. and that smoke so heavy it can be seen from space. this is the southern flank of the fire. there are homes just down this road that crews have rung, set fires around it, in the hopes that when the winds pick up in about an hour the two fires meet and establish some containment. firefighters trying to extend that containment zone, seen here scrambling to set a backfire before it devours a nearby home. >> we're seeing that help from mother nature that's allowing firefighters to get up against the line and really put the fire out. >> reporter: more than 3,000 firefighters working throughout the night. the fire claiming five lives, including a great-grandmother and two children. and at least a dozen more people are missing. over 38,000 residents have evacuated. fires still raging in southern california. more than 1300 firefighters
7:05 am
continue to battle the cranston fire in riverside county. it uses to be thought that the fire season in california didn't ramp up until the fall. we're hearing time and again from firefighters, it seems to be recently, at least, that sit an all-year-round season, unfortunately. the smoke, by the way, hanging thick in the air. difficult to breathe. but dimming the sunshine a little bit. it's keeping the temperatures down just enough to keep the winds down. that technically should help out. more advisories up across the northwest. the heat will build up there. so oregon, washington, we're looking at 90-degree temperatures again today. humidity levels, probably don't talk enough about this. dangerously low across the entire inter mountain west. let's get to marci, also in the fire zone. talking to survivors not only of the fire but saving their homes.
7:06 am
marci. >> reporter: hey, rob. good morning. this is another example of the utter destruction here. this washer and dryer, some of the only recognizable things left at this house, and yet right next door, that home is untouched. this morning, we're hearing how that homeowner kept the flames from spreading. and how others here are helping their neighbors. >> unbelievable. >> reporter: with flames just feet from his home, former firefighter matt smith immediately grabs a garden hose, refusing to give in to the inferno. >> i was like right here, spraying, spraying. >> reporter: his one-man battle raging for hours, saving his house and others nearby. >> i barely saved it as you can see. it was a fight to the death. >> reporter: a few blocks away, surrounded by flames, firefighter joshua wilkins spots this golden retriever on top of a car. some of her fur singed, her paws badly burned. he carries her to the fire engine, later reuniting her with her owner. >> if it was me in that situation and i just lost my home, having your pets back is i
7:07 am
think the biggest consolation that we can provide. >> reporter: but what they're providing goes even further. >> kids started coming home, coming back to their homes. and it was all burnt and stuff. we gave them some stickers. we didn't have any teddy bears and stuff. >> reporter: at the end of an exhausting 60-hour shift, these three firefighters decide to go shopping, stocking their truck with toys. >> we tried our best. we want to make it as easy for them as possible. >> reporter: an entire community finding ways to ease some of the pain. this man buying dozens of pillows and blankets for evacuees. and at mercy medical center, dr. ed zawada coming right to work just after learning his home is among the hundreds destroyed. >> we lost stuff. well, it's not so much -- we still have our health. and other people here don't. >> reporter: he is one of at least 20 employees of that hospital who lost their homes but are still working these long days, coming in to treat
7:08 am
patients, including some who were injured in this fire. guys? >> so many people selfless here going out to help others while they themselves also need help. >> incredible. >> marci, thank you. and turning now to politics, and that widening divide between president trump and his former personal attorney and fixer, michael cohen. >> the president's new attorney, rudy giuliani, issuing a warning. but cohen's camp fighting back. abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri, is in new jersey where president trump is spending the weekend at his golf resort. tara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit and diane. the relationship between the two has really deteriorated since michael cohen started dropping hints last month that he's willing to cooperate with prosecutors. giuliani told me last night that they've ended their joint legal defense agreement, meaning that they don't share information anymore. and the trump campaign won't cover cohen's legal bills. overnight, the president's legal team breaking ties with trump's long-time fixer michael cohen,
7:09 am
while sending him a strong message to keep quiet. the president's lawyer, rudy giuliani, telling abc news by phone -- >> we have complained to them that he's violating the attorney/client privilege publicly and privately. he's in grave jeopardy of being disbarred. >> reporter: after more than a decade, trump and cohen's relationship hitting a new low. cohen, who is under investigation in the southern district of new york for possible charges ranging from fraud to campaign finance violations, no longer receiving financial support from the trump campaign as part of a joint legal defense agreement. >> i don't know what happened to him. a few months ago he wasn't telling all these lies. a few months ago i didn't know he was a lawyer who tape-recorded his client secretly. >> reporter: this comes as abc news has learned that cohen claims that then-candidate trump knew in advance about that infamous trump tower meeting in 2016 when his son, donald trump jr., jared kushner, and paul manafort, his former campaign manager, met with russians promising dirt on hillary clinton. president trump has long denied he knew about the meeting. >> did you know at the time that they had the meeting? >> no, i didn't know anything
7:10 am
about the meeting. >> reporter: now giuliani casting doubt on a conversation secretly recorded by cohen of then-candidate trump talking about a hush payment for "playboy" model karen mcdougal, who claims she had an affair with trump. >> when it comes time for the financing -- which will be -- >> what financing? >> we'll have to pay. >> pay with cash? >> no, no, no. >> reporter: trump's legal team hired experts to examine the tape. giuliani suggesting that it was doctored by cohen. >> we've had it analyzed and there's no way to tell if he did it at the time, or if he went back and edited out a portion. >> reporter: cohen's legal team is firing back. his attorney, lanny davis, told me, quote, mr. giuliani seems to be confused. he expressly waived client/attorney privilege last week and repeatedly and inaccurately, as prufb by the tapes, talked and talked about
7:11 am
the recording, forfeiting all confidentiality. dan? >> tara, thank you. so much to talk about here. so let's go to washington where we find martha raddatz, who's going to be hosting "this week" later this morning. martha, good morning. >> good morning. >> let me ask you about this increasingly aggressive stance that team trump has taken toward michael cohen, who famously once said years ago that he would take a bullet for mr. trump. what, if anything, does this say about how much of a threat the trump folks feel cohen may pose here? >> well, it sure seems like a warning shot to michael cohen to keep his mouth shut when they're talking about attorney/client privilege. and that statement that tara just read from lanny davis saying that they must be confused, he waived that confidentiality agreement really i think just applies to that tape. that's what they waived privilege on so people could listen to that tape. and donald trump clearly has no problem with that, apparently, having people listen to that tape and decide for themselves. but at the heart of this matter is really that trump tower meeting.
7:12 am
did donald trump know about that trump tower meeting? and did he lie about it, saying he did not? that's what will be looked at very, very carefully. and that's what that shot across the bow seems to be aimed at, michael cohen. >> there are reports this week that michael cohen says mr. trump did know so that will of course be a big point of contention going forward. i do want to switch while we have you to another story. this has to do with north korea. we saw this week a sign of good will from the north koreans. they turned over what they say are remains of american servicemen killed during the korean war. you went to a facility in hawaii where they're trying to identify these remains. tell us what you found. >> just looking at these pictures it has to be so moving. 55 cases returned by the north koreans. that's something president trump wanted to happen. we have not had remains returned from north korea since 2005. so when i went to this lab in honolulu about ten days ago there were already remains from
7:13 am
decades ago that they are still going through. i'll tell you, it is a profound experience standing there and being surrounded by the remains of those service members. and there are more than 5,000, they believe, still in north korea. so what they will do now when these most recent remains come in, they will do dna checks, try to find family members and match up that dna. they basically put the skeletons together. it is a giant 3-d puzzle. you can see bits of hair and skull. it truly is a very haunting and profound experience but means so much to those families, dan. it really, truly does give them closure. >> that's incredible. these are young people who gave their lives for a war most of us have forgotten. martha raddatz, a profound story and you'll be talking about it on the show this morning. thank you for your time. i want to remind everybody, martha does have a big show this morning. she's going to go one on one on
7:14 am
with the senate intel committee member james langford, on the public battle between his client michael cohen and president trump. plus, just 100 days from the midterm election day. plus the powerhouse "roundtable" debates what's at stake. that's coming up on "this week" right here on abc. >> dan, thanks. now to new developments in those bombshell allegations against the head of cbs. >> new questions are being raised about a possible connection between sexual misconduct allegations against les moonves and a corporate legal battle. abc's eva pilgrim joins us with the latest. eva, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the cbs ceo facing sexual misconduct allegations. six women have come forward but now some of his female co-workers and other actresses and hosts are coming to his defense, as the network is facing some tough questions. les moonves, the head of cbs, under investigation for sexual misconduct. this morning the company he's run for two decades accused of turning a blind eye to a culture of harassment. "the new yorker" releasing an expose by ronan farrow featuring allegations from six women against the cbs chairman that range from inappropriate kissing to sexual assault.
7:15 am
>> these are all stories in which women said one after another that they were terrified and intimidated. >> it's nice. >> reporter: in the article, the emmy nominated actress and writer, illeana douglas, known for her roles in "goodfellas" and "six feet under" describes what she calls a sexual assault that occurred during a meeting with moonves for a show she was cast in. she claims he held her down and began violently kissing her and even pulled up her skirt. moonves admits trying to kiss douglas but denies sexually assaulting her. but the article went further, detailing a pattern of harassment at cbs news. one former employee claiming, i had several producers and editors over the age of 60 who would greet me by kissing me on the mouth. >> we did hear from dozens and dozens of current and former employees that they had seen a culture of harassment and retaliation. >> reporter: as cbs begins its investigation, moonves responding to the allegations
7:16 am
saying, i always understood and respected and abided by the principle that no means no. and i have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone's career. now celebrities and other cbs executives are publicly showing their support. "wonder woman" lynda carter tweeting, les moonves is a close friend. i have known him for 40 years. he is a kind, decent and honorable man. i believe him. and i believe in him. sharon osbourne who co-hosts "the talk" with moonves' wife, on-air personality julie chen, also tweeting -- interesting timing, seems like an ademt to discredit leslie before a major court case. i hope people let cbs conduct their investigation. cbs is in the middle of a heated merger battle with viacom that has ended up in court. some are alleging these claims may stem from that corporate dispute. one unnamed cbs exec calling it corporate hardball. a representative for the head of viacom responding saying that any claim she is behind the
7:17 am
allegations is false and self-serving. now, illeana douglas releasing a statement saying real change will occur when victims of sexual assault are not stigmatized as whistleblowers or people with some kind of agenda for coming forward. speaking for myself, real change will occur when i can walk through the front doors of cbs and resume the creative and working relationship that was so tragically cut short in 1997. the cbs board saying they will fully investigate these claims and take appropriate action. and they don't think this article accurately portrays the culture of their company. >> this is a really important story. we appreciate your coverage, eva. thank you very much. we move on to a murder suspect wanted in new york and captured in california. >> police say danuel drayton hunted women through dating sites. they're now investigating the possibility of more victims. abc's erielle reshef has more. >> reporter: a suspected killer cuffed and now in custody, this morning accused of using dating apps to lure victims in a spate
7:18 am
of heinous assaults on two coasts. >> this individual uses dating websites to meet women and then victimize these women. >> reporter: police sources now say 27-year-old danuel drayton may be connected to at least seven murders and other violent attacks. >> there's potentially more victims out there. >> reporter: drayton, arrested in a north hollywood hotel where los angeles police say he was holding a woman hostage. >> two independent investigations as they progressed led our detectives to one and the same individual. that individual was tracked across the country. >> reporter: a fugitive task force already on the hunt for drayton, wanted in new york for the murder of 29-year-old nurse samantha stewart. her grief-stricken father in shock. >> i am mourning, heartbroken, in pieces. >> reporter: authorities now also connecting drayton to the recent rape of a 23-year-old woman in brooklyn. the victims all allegedly meeting drayton online. >> it's a common denominator in these two cases, one being a murder, one being a rape, is dating websites.
7:19 am
>> reporter: stewart's father with a stark warning. >> i want this to be a learning experience for young people, don't get involved with strangers. >> reporter: drayton faces a long list of charges in new york and los angeles including murder and attempted murder. he's being held on more than a million dollars bail in los angeles. he's also due in court on monday and investigators are still working to determine if there are, in fact, more victims. >> erielle, thank you. time now for the weather. let's go over to rob marciano in northern california. rob? >> good morning again, diane. we don't want to forget about the veer weather across the high plains yesterday. 1 of 8 tornadoes. this wung in douglas, wyoming. heavy rains over garden city, kansas. a batch of thunderstorms pouring down into the south. 60, 70, 80-mile-per-hour
