6:06 pm
grateful but also very nervous. >> reporter: that's right, raj, what people have gone through is really hard to fathom. we're here at the red cross shelter in chico where people are able to pick up clothing and get their basic needs met. but this shelter is now at capacity, and a lot of folks are wondering where to go now. >> just red, fiery, evil red skies. >> reporter: that's how janice clark describes the scene she escaped from yesterday. she packed up and fled from her butte county home. her familiar any sacramento had no idea if she'd survived. >> yesterday, november 8th is my birthday. and she's never in all my 35 years, she's never missed a call. and yesterday just going an hour, just hour after hour, not knowing. >> reporter: but late this crk

6:08 pm
this year. >> reporter: we are back here live where you're looking at evacuees watching the news, trying to get the latest information now. this shelter here in chico is at capacity as is the shelter in oroville. a red cross worker told me here that he's been told they could be sheltering people through christmas. reporting live in butte county, jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news >> a tough way in this holiday seen comi season coming up. those evacuees were watching that news conference we showed you a few minutes ago. we will also monitor that to get you the latest information. among the big questions, how did this start. there are several science pointi -- signs pointing to pg&e power lines. they admitted they received an
6:09 pm
outage on a line shortly before the f 33, company 33, hazardous conditions, power lines possible, correction, line down with a possible extension to a tree. confirming hi confirming fire line hazard. >> that was around yesterday at 6:30. the transmission outage was 15 minutes before that, so around 6:15. the utility isn't saying much more. it released this statement saying pg&e will fully cooperate with any investigations. the cause of the camp fire has not yet been determined. pg&e shares plummeted today. the worst day on the stock 16 y. they lost about $4 billion in value. a lot of people are going to the area of chico for safe haven, about 150 miles from san francisco. we're seeing and smelling the fire here in the bay area.
6:10 pm
really, from the north bay to the east bay, to the peninsula, south bay, it seems none of us are immune to all this smoke. let's bring in chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. i want to talk about the smoke here, but first, let's talk about the situation in chico and the intensity of what people are feeling there in terms of the air quality and the smoke and the changes in the wind. >> it really is two to three times worse in some cases when you're so close to those fires. firefighters did get a break today, and that is excellent news when it comes to the weather. that's really helped them get a containment around this. at least near chico and dirham and keep that fire from spreading into chico and durham. as you can rippihr paradise. current wind out of the north at 3 mayil p go up to 15 miles per hour through tonight. as we head into tomorrow, we still will see gusts of about 15, so it's not that bad. but the next wind event we might have is sunday, where we could
6:11 pm
get gusts of 20 to 30 miles per hour. the current wind is pushing some of the flames back onto itself, and that is the good news. current fire containment. as we were mentioning, they were able to stop it at least right there at highway 99 and keep it from going into durham and parts of chico. a little shred of good news, but this is going to be a long-fought, firefighting battle. across the bay area, it's been all about the smoke. i don't think i can show this map enough. this is all smoke. magenta is the worst of it of course up chico. you see color, that's also smoke that's going to be shrouding the entire bay area. boiling this down, what does it mean for us? unhealthy air for the north bay, then for the east bay, south bay and peninsula, we are very will get t here in of that smoke between a lot of our higher elevations. with more on that unhealthy air,
6:12 pm
we have christie smith live in san francisco. i was in san francisco today, it only took 15 to 20 minutes and i really started to feel it in my chest. what's it like for you? >> reporter: we are standing at twin peaks. this is normally where we would come to see a beautiful sunset. but tonight we saw an eerie brown glow. i'm going to step aside and you can see the lights down market street. it looks like some of the high rises are shrouded in smoke. air district managers are telling us this won't clear out right away. the massive camp fire burned far from san francisco but the smoke bothers me, my eyes and, you know, the smoke is bad for my lungs. >> reporter: jan wore a mask and so did others near market street. sfmpa says they gave them to cable car operators as an option. the jones family saw it as they
6:13 pm
heit we flew in. >> smoke was filling in the city. >> it moved quickly moo tinto ty area yesterday. it will likely continue into next week at the very least. >> reporter: they have more than 30 monitoring stations. many showing unhealthy air. and they suggest shelter rather than a mask. >> we're not recommending the mask. the best defense is to stay indoors with your windows and doors closed, and stay out of the smoke. >> reporter: the mayor says the city is on alert, helping the homeless who may be exposed while students stayed indoors. >> we're working with our >> reporter: at sfo, flights department of services. were canceled or delayed due to poor air quality. at this ace hardware, they restocked due to the smoke. >> masks. as quick as they could. there are air purifiers that
6:14 pm
people wanted as well. >> reporter: again, the advice we heard repeatedly today is ideally, what you want to do is avoid the smoke all together. and stay inside. for those who have to be outside, use those n95 masks and make sure they are properly fitted. nbc bay area news. fire not just in northern california but people running from their homes in malibu as flames creep closer there. a live report from southern alifoia up insurance. i'm consumer investigator kris camora. we have answers plus a simple step we think you should take this weekend to present your home or apartment. nbc bay area responds next.

6:17 pm
within the past few minutes -- we )ve learned new want to update you on our breaking news, a few minutes ago we showed you the news conference. we've listened to it. this is what we've learned about the camp fire in butte county, 90,000 acres, 6,000 homes have burned, about 1400 people in shelters, 52,000 people evacuated, and sadly, we have learned that death toll has risen. it is now nine people confirmed dead, that includes the five people trapped in their vehicles as they tried to escape the flames. th person died inside their house. 52,000 people are still out of
6:18 pm
their homes. the fire is 5% contained. and, again, firefighters making a brave effort to see if they can knock it down and keep it from moving to chico. >> it is fire season even though it is mid november now. southern california also getting hit hard. thousands of people are on the move, forced to evacuate. this is a live look at the woolsley fire burning near thousand oaks, calabasas, west hills and malibu under evacuation orders. you can imagine, the traffic is a nightmare. you can see the flames down below. parts of 101 and the pch, the pacific coast highway, are closed at this bring in damian in the fire zone for us near malibu. these are high-profile communities in danger. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, just a lot of deaf stay, raj. this is a roadblock that you see a lot here in ventura and in l.a. county. this is a road that takes you
6:19 pm
into malibu from highway 101. the officer highly recommended that we not get on this road, but he says he can't stop us because we're a news organization. there are embers on the road. there are downed power lines. as far as the folks, homeowners, there is a lot of despair for a lot of these communities. the flames jumpedth, the town o malibu under mandatory evacuation. >> it happened really, really fast. reallyll of a sudden the fire was there. so it was really fast. >> reporter: there are multiple fires north of downtown l.a. >> you look exhausted, tired. >> of course. my wife took the kids and went somewhere, so i got to find them. >> reporter: an elderly people who had to leave their home pleaded with us to check if it's still standing. the neighborhood is in a mountainous area, most of it char the by the flames. we showed the family the
6:20 pm
pictures. this is their home of more than 30 years. the woolsley fire spared it. >> i got to tell you, i've prayed for a lot of things in my life, but never as hard as i prayed for this. thank you very much for letting me know. >> herrings among the few, the lucky ones. lots of other families waited hoping to hear the same thing. >> i s my emotion already, so, yeah. all my friends and everything, everybody's clerking on me and my family and offering places to go if we don't have a house, so that's nice. it's just not the same. >> reporter: the news for the snodgrass family wasn't good. their home is gone. and the governor has declared states of emergency for both ventura and l.a. counties. we are live in l.a. county, damian trujillo. >> same for butte county as well. there's a lot of devastation on
6:21 pm
both sides of us. >> just like last year, when we had ventura and the napa fire, almost concurrently, and the year before up in mariposa. >> we have so many friends in the chico area, in southern california. this is connected to all of us here. what's in the forecast in the next 24 hours? >> the most important thing as we head into the weekend wind a forecast. there's no red la pick up to 20 to 30 miles per hour in the hills, and that could pose a problem yet again as firefighters are trying to get a handle on all of this activity. and, you know, while we have these horrible situations up here near chico in southern california, you feel kind of guilty complaining about the smoke, but a lot of the bay area is dealing with it, so i do want to focus in on that. the fire near chico, and then all of this gray, you can see right here, that's all of the smoke moving down today, but we still have residual smoke from yesterday. so it's like this one-two effect across the bay area.
6:22 pm
and that's why it is just so horrible outside to breathe. this is not fog. what you are seeing right here, it looks like fog. though is all of the smoke that's not going to go anywhere this weekend. we do have our smoke advisory in effect right through monday with unhealthy air all across the bay area. so what can do? simple stuff here. it's easy to forget. common sense. limit your outdoor exposure. keep your ac button on your car on recirculate. get an n95 mask if you're sensitive. bring those pets inside. our forecast, i think we will see on and off smoke not only for saturday but sunday and monday. we may not actually see the weather pattern to give us a break to clear this out of here possibly until next thursday when we have a chance of that happening. i'll have details on this smoke. we'll show you another view of that forecast tomorrow at 6:48. we're going to break.
6:23 pm
we'll be back in a few minutes. .
6:24 pm
6:25 pm
6:26 pm
this si the woolsey fire near malibu. we want to get back to our live pictures out of southern california. this is our nbc chopper in the malibu area and the west hills area. this is the woolsley fire. thousands of people have already been evacuated, and dozens if not hundreds of homes and structures have already been destroyed. again, this is happening near malibu, ventura and l.a. county right near the border near the 101 and pch. we are seeing so many people losing their homes. and immediately, we started asking that question about insurance. >> one you really, really, really have to listen to. we turned to our consumer investigator chris camora again for answers. the question people keep asking is will they be covered? >> most likely, raj and jess, yes, they will be covered. when we look at the list of things covered in a property insurance policy, the state department of insurance puts fire and smoke right there at the very top.
6:27 pm
though there are exceptions. so please check your policy to be sure. another question, are renters covered by their landlord's fire policy? the answer is no. the landlord's policy protects the building, not the tenant's belongings. if you rent, you need to buy your own policy. the good news is it's usually inexpensive and you can add it to your car insurance a lot of times. construction costs can skyrocket after a big disaster. they have in the north bay and pinched so many people. so talk to your agent about building in a cushion. does a policy pay automatically? rarely. victims of past fires like the north bay will tell you to expect months of paperwork to get insurance to pay. finally, how do you get the most from your policy? that maximum payout? documentation is the answer. you need to do an inventory of your home, even if's just walking around taking video with
6:28 pm
your smartphone to prove your losses to your family. these fires are a reminder to all of us to do that inventory today or this weekend. if you have questions, call us,n from the fire lines near chico. we'll go back out live to cheryl hurd in the fire zone. stay with us.
6:29 pm
you know, it's a great experience, but it's on to the next week. one wiebe doesn't make a seen. so we have to keep things rolling. >> yeah, you have to stack wins starts snowballing. you have to keep pushing forward. we have new york in the bye. one-week season. we're going to try to stack another one. >> 49ers spotlight, sponsored by xfinity. the future of awesome. not slowi
6:30 pm
the fire terrorizing butte right now at 6:30.
6:31 pm
it's not slowing down. the fire terrorizing butte county claims more lives and is causing more people to evacuate. the latest and most devastating update. we just learned about 20 minutes ago, the death toll is rising. nine people have died and plenty more are unaccounted for. >> the sheriff's office says with these latest deaths, the victims were found near cars or their residence. one person was actually found inside their home. in addition to the deaths, the butte county sheriff's office says at least seven people have been injured, including three firefighters. the camp fire broke out yesterday. >> what we're seeing as we go into -- >> burns at least 6,000 homes and buildings destroyed. cal fire says the weather this weekend will play a crucial role in that firefight. >> what we're seeing as we go into tonight and tomorrow, we're actually seeing a very good opportunity with very favorable weather, much lighter winds. still very, very dry conditions out there.
6:32 pm
>> and then we don't know what the weekend will hold later on in the weekend. sheriff's office also announced this evening that they're getting their first reports of looting in the paradise area. so far, no arrests have been made, but it hard to believe that people would be taking advantage of others. >> it happens, sadly, in these fire zones all the time. nbc bay area's cheryl hurd has been in the fire zone for the past 36 hours. you've seep the town of paradise destroyed right before your own eyes, what are you seeing at this hour? >> reporter: it's eerily quiet and cold this evening. what i am seeing is a lot of firefighters and police making their rounds. take a look at the devastation. you've been seeing it all afternoon. but take a little walk over here so you can see what i'm seeing and feeling tonight. here in front of our headlights you can see the smoke in this town. and right over here, more devastation. a business gone. the fire ripped through here on
6:33 pm
thursday night, not leaving a lot standing. unfortunately, we have a lot to compare this with, and it will be a while before this town can recover. raj, jess? >> cheryl, before you go, y also covered the north bay fires for us. in that instan,pl said it happened so fast they didn't have enough time to get out, they didn't get enough warning, what are you hearing from the people here? especially most of them are elderly residents in paradise. did they feel they had enough time? were they given enough warning so they could get out? >> reporter: two things, and you're making a good point. everyone here is feeling the same thing that the folks are feeling in the santa rosa area. it happened so fast. it just came through. and some people i talked to said they didn't get any warning. they said one minute they were just going about their business, and the next minute they were fleeing for their lives. so everything is very similar. i talked to one woman, and she said that this feels like
6:34 pm
redding all over again. >> you saw what happened in redding, and also in middletown and santa rosa. is there anyone in town? are the streets shut down? are there any people coming into town? we did have a coupleep looting there. >> reporter: i know. and it was so disheartening to hear that. i did run into a gentleman who stayed put. he did not leave his home, and he said he's not the only one, so there's probably a handful of people who are staying at their homes with no lights or anything else, but no one can come into this area. if you stayed you request stcan you cannot come back into this area. >> what is the status with the shelters? yesterday we were hearing there weren't enough shelters open in chico. what is the status, there are about 1300 people in these shelters. what's going to happen over the next couple days? >> reporter: not sure what's going to happen in the next couple days, but the shelters
6:35 pm
are overflowing, and a lot of places are stepping up to the plate. i went to the neighborhood church yesterday, he said he has accommodations for 300 people. 500 people were on his campus. i'm not sure how many people are there right now. i fair grounds to accommodate more people. so it's going to be a challenge for the city of paradise for the next several months. >> okay. cheryl hurd reporting for us in the fire zone. thank you. we'll check pack with yback wit through the next several days through the weekend. this fire hits home for a lot of people in the bay area, the 49ers, one started a go fund me request the. until yesterday it's where my dad called home for the last 20 years. these people need your help. donate or share. anything and everything helps. paradise, we've got you. a minimum of oember of our own

rallying for help, matt maiocco dwighting this video. his mom's house was destroyed last night. she is okay, thankfully. but people still need help getting out of the paradise area. maiocco linking to the north valley community fund for evacuation relief. >> all those flames are leading to smoke in the bay area. this is what the smoke plume looks like from space. can you see the orange glow of the fire and all that smoke. to. jeff ranieri is tracking the fire and the conditions and all that smoke and the air quality for us. he'll be back with us in 12 minutes. janelle wang is with us. all these weekend vents aevents
