nbc has a look at the health impact. chief meteorologist jeff ranieri is watching the winds. we begin with jodi hernandez. >> reporter: raj, this fire has more than tripled in size and it just keeps growing. as you mentioned, you can see the smoky hillside behind me. we've actually been watching lottelot e helicopters and planes dropping water on this today. you see patches of bright orange. no those are flames. tonight the fire is just 20% contained. >> biggest challenge is access, trying to get the resources to where the fire is is actually burning and doing it in a safe manner. >> reporter: firefighters are facing huge challenges as they work to get a handle on the biggest fire mt. diablo's seen in years. more than 3,700 acreses have burned since the fire broke out yesterday afternoon. hot weather, steep terrain, and dry vegetation are making it tough to tackle. >> we know that there's been a
6:01 pm
lot of growth out there. it's been a very long time since that has actually burned. so right now we're trying to be cautious, protect what we can and control where the fire is spreading to. >> reporter: 100 houses are at risk. while the fire's come close, so far it hasn't destroyed any homes. >> you know, the first thought you have is, what should i pack? even though, you know, it's not like there's a flood coming toward me, i have a while to think about it, you freeze up wondering what do you do? what's the most precious thing to take with you? >> reporter: paul seman lives five miles from the frontline but fears if the winds shift his home could end up in the fire's path. >> like the yosemite fire, they say it's 10%, 20% out, but it keeps getting bigger. 20% of what, right? that's what's scary. >> reporter: we're back here live. you can see that thick smoke and flames are actually burning just beyond these trees. now, in addition to the homes
6:02 pm
that are at risk, there are also some important infrastructure that's at risk out here. there's a pg&e power lines and on the top of mt. diablo there are important communications towers used by the contra cost ra county fire department, by the sheriffs department and by the american medical response. there are also television transmission towers including our own on top of mt. diablo. now, crews are working very hard to protect the homes and the infrastructure, but again, so far, just 20% contained. there are about 700 firefighters out here working very hard to get control of this fast-moving fire. reporting live at mt. diablo, jodi hernandez, nbc bay area use. >> if you can see some of the fire, that means a lot of people know you can smell some of that fire. a live picture of the fire. there's smoke you can see billowing into the air. at one point the smoke was so
6:03 pm
intense you could see it in many places in the east bay even all the way to san ramon. mary ann favro is live. even today you could hear a lot of people in the east bay coughing. >> reporter: you could, jessica. i was one of them. we talked to several people in% pleasanton who complained they were coughing a lot more than usual and complained about having irritated eyes all because of the smoke. doctors say the smoke can cause much more serious health problems. the thick smoke funneling up into the sky in the east bay isn't just something your eyes can clearly see. wrr e your eyes can feel it, too. >> we're beginning to get a sense of it, beginning to kind of work on the eyes a bit. create a little bit of itchine s itchiness. >> reporter: that's not the only problem smoke from the mt. diablo fire is causing. >> i might have been coughing more than usual. >> reporter: the bay area air quality management district has issued a smoke advisory in
6:04 pm
contra costa, alameda and sant it clara counties urging people to stay inside if they can. this pulmonologist says theticu matter. >> if you can see smoke, we're inhaling the particles and microscopic particles we don't see, we're inhaling those and serve as triggers were issues like asthma. >> reporter: people are asthma, the elderly and children are most at risk. the doctor says the smoke is a health concern for everyone. >> some of those very microscopic particles actually go through the lungs into the bloodstream. it's been shown when there are smoke advisories increased problems with heart attacks, with strokes. >> reporter: he says if you can see this, set the air in your car to recirculate. same with your ac at home. don't try to exercise outdoors in these conditions. the risks outweigh the benefits. air quality experts say the
6:05 pm
winds today have actually helped carry the smoke up into the air and away from populated areas. but tonight they're concerned that the wind are going to die down a little bit and that may cause the particulate matter to drop and that could pose a greater health risk to all of us. reporting live in pleasanton, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. we have new information we want to share with you. some new video as well just into our newsroom. this shows the fire fight from the south side of mt. diablo. this was loser to danville and dub list. this is high up on summit road inside mt. diablo state park. our chief meteorologist jeff ranieri is tracking the weather that could give firefighters a break soon. not just firefighters but all the residents in the tri valley and santa clara county. >> that's right. as we heard in jodi hernandez's piece it's about the access for the firefighters. the very steep terrain, they are all the more dependent on any kind of weather shift we are going to see. see, of course, that locator showing this fire on the eastern
6:06 pm
as we pull out, the largest change, the next 24 hours, no doubt, is the cooling marine layer that's already building back to the coastline. this is great news for firefighters because it will help to import not only cooler temperatures but you can also see increasing humidity over the next 24 hours. that forecast does have winds gusting tomorrow 20 to 30 miles per hour but humidity levels 25% to 35% is better news and instead of widespread upper 90s we go for an upper 80s scenario at this point. we also heard about the air quality. see the doppler radar shows the areas of green typically with rain. as it's been sending out its beams today in the atmosphere, as that radar beam bounces off the smoke, it's detecting it as the green blobs. see a lot of that headed over the south, the tri valley, rather, off to the south over livermore, where our air quality will likely be the worst for tonight and we've seen ash reports from san ramon all the way down to dublin.
6:07 pm
i do want to also underscore one point, you guys. the wind will stay in the same general direction over the next 24 hours. folks that are really close to some of those flames, at this point we're not expecting an abrupt shift in the winds that would take it off to the east. so that is good news. it will be more consistent at least in the way that it is burning, but remember, these fires all have a mind of their own. so, you know, watch this very closely and heed those warnings. >> okay, jeff. encouragining news there in ter of the marine layer. thank you. images are chilling of the fire. over the past 24 hours viewers have been sending us incredible photos from the fire from various vantage points. if you're in a safe location and can snap a photo, send it to us via qzañfacebook, twitter, e-ma directly at happening right now, it's been a year since a deadly explosion in san bruno. eight people died when a pg&e pipeline exploded. with extraordinary images shown as far away as germany. tonight a remembrance to nose
6:08 pm
who lost their lives and a welcome home to those who rebuild. san bruno, that was the heart of the impact right there. >> reporter: yeah, right here, jessica. they juf hst had a moment of silence behind me five minutes ago. the victims i've spoken with tell me it's been a long three years for them. they decided to rebuild while others did not return. the images were dramatic. nancy hansel saw them while she was vacationing in europe. her home was engulfed. >> oh, i didn't know what to think. i said, how am i going to get out of here? i want to go home. >> reporter: her husband was home and made it out okay. today nancy spends her time caring for her new home. >> it's not the same. it's built almost the same. my husband wanted it built just the same, so we did, but you can't build it the same.
6:09 pm
>> reporter: they remember that day. >> it's been tough. it's been tough. you don't even have enough clothes for yourself. >> reporter: all along the hill above the cliff canyon, crews have spent the last three years rebuilding. eduardo says he seems to be adding a bit more care to his work, knowing it might bring some comfort to a family who lost it all in 2010. but even as there seems to be a rebirth of the neighborhood, there are still the symbols of those who lost their lives"ifñ the blast. one empty lot adorned with the flag of the united states marine corps. a dozen other lots also sit vacant. victims who decided this could never be home again. i just spoke with the mayor of the city of san bruno. he tells me that pg&e is not off the hook yet. he's still seeking billions of dollars in fines for them, and

6:16 pm
city and on campus as well. and yet the students say they understand that there is danger around them, but they're taking it all in stride. san jose state university police investigators say whomever killed a man whose body was found in a parked jeep near the university's tennis courts sunday is no danger to students. >> we can pretty much say there is no connection to the university. no threat to our university community. >> reporter: but students' concerns wouldn't be unfoundeded. one of their classmates was found murdered not far from campus in august and twice in july the university sent text messages about violent assaults on campus, one as a result of a fight, the other a laptop robbery in which the victim was pistol whipped. lulu watched from cross country practice nearby. >> it wasn't on campus, it was at the athletic department but

6:20 pm
the assembly. his accomplishments wouldn't even fit in mr. brown's, you know, top dresser drawer. >> so here's where we stand. the transportation committee may vote as early as tonight on whether to pass the bill naming the bridge for willie brown. it would then move on to the full senate. all right. let's turn things over to meteorologist jeff ranieri. very hot temperatures outside. low humidity. it's been a tough going for the last 24 hours for those firefighters. >> yeah, certainly has. we have better news on thorizon. hottest spot, tri valley. third day locked in the triple digit heat. 100, fairfield. 93 san jose. the key difference today in san francisco dropping to 68 degrees. sign of the onshore flow begin to build. three days of triple digits saturday, sunday, and today, parts of the east bay as one of the hottest summers since 2009. we're tied right now for the amount of triple digits we had

meteorologist. you have to come up with a fancy name for your meteorology. >> i know. i have a list. i'm waiting to pick the right one and trademark it. it's under wraps, you guys. let's get a look here. the fire near mt. diablo. i want to give you an update when it comes to the weather and how it's impacting this fire that, again, has burned over 3,000 acres. 20% contained. on the eastern side of mt. diablo. what we're going to see for tomorrow, primarily, is some cooler weather. starting to move in. also increased humidity coming in from the coastline. those temperatures likely dropping into the 80s. the great news for anyone living around this fire at this point, we are not expecting an abrupt shift in overall large-scale shift in the winds. that would turn the flames in, let's say, the exact opposite direction. so the way those flames have been moving, the way firefighters are battling it should be how they contend with that for tomorrow. a lot of fog and also marine layer building up at the coastline. that is going to bring us cloud cover for tomorrow at the coast. temperatures in the upper 50s.
6:48 pm
also low 60s. little bit of cloud cover by the by. inland, we're going to wake up mainly clear with temperatures in the 60s. key thing to note by 11:00 a.m. tomorrow, instead of dealing with 80s inland like in the east bay, numbers primarily in the 70s. not quite a hot day like the past three days coming our way. let's get you outside to the changes here. see in palo alto the fog line is in full effect. we have not seen it this strong in four days. that, again, great news for the firefighters. we'll take you off to emeryville. i do want to stress this is not smoke from the morgan fire. this is actually fog with the marine layer that is building up to 2,000 and 3,000 feet. this is exactly what we want, again, helping to increase that humidity for those firefighters. they are looking at that closely and breathing a little sigh of relief at least now with that scenario. 88 in san jose. 78 in sunnyvale. 90, morgan hill. tomorrow, 91 in gilroy. in the east bay, instead of low 100s like saturday, sunday, also
6:49 pm
today, we're going to back temperatures off. 5 to 7 degrees. we'll have the 94 in walnut creek. mt. diablo, upper 80 to 90. at the coastline, anywhere from 60s at the immediate coastline to low 70s in downtown san francisco. 85 in sonoma. 76 also in berkeley. overall high pressure begins to weaken. that's going to allow all of this hot air we have been feeling with to fade on out. we're going to go more with a warm wording on the seven-day forecast instead of completely hot. wednesday, thursday and friday, temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees with areas of morning fog building back into the forecast. by next monday with six days until fall, no raindrops on the seven-day forecast right now. the way the pattern's been going this summer it looks at least a little bit promise to get us some rain drops over the next two to three weeks certainly. >> thank you, jeff. >> no problem. a look at sports.

punches thrown, you know, to joe's head and, well, one punch and one open slap. which, you know, that was just -- if you're going to go to the face, come with some knuckles. you know, not an open slap. so i think that young man works very hard on being a tough guy. he'll have some repairing to do to his image. like i said last week, i mean, usually a man will tell you his bad intentions if you just listen, and that's certainly, it was a cheap shot. >> reporter: after the game, matthews admitted his late hit on kaepernick was not very smart and may also be very costly. the linebacker can expect to see a fedex envelope in his locker from the league near the end of the week with a fine for his actions. >> thanks very much. let's go to the raiders side of things.
