size. take a look at the view from chopper 5. that is incredible! you can see just how big the "jerusalem fire" is getting now. 12,000 acres are scorched. so far no containment. cal fire says 50 structures are threatened and evacuations in place. the "jerusalem fire" and the "rocky fire" are burning dangerously close together. this map showing boundary lines between the two is just a matter of miles. kpix 5's joe vazquez live near the fire with some exhaustive efforts tonight by the firefighters and homeowners. joe. >> reporter: we're in the town of lower lake where folks are keeping an eye in the background there just off in the horizon as those fires appear to be converging. folks here, well, they are tense about it. >> it is getting closer. >> reporter: katherine miller already had to evacuate because of the "rocky fire." >> you know, just been frantic around here in the

effort being put forward not just by firefighters but volunteers, county employees are working overtime. it's costing this county a pretty penny. we are going to talk about that coming up at 6:00. reporting live, i'm joe vazquez, kpix 5. >> joe, i'm looking behind you there. that banner that's flying. i can see it's -- there's a breeze but it doesn't really look like a strong wind today. >> reporter: no, not as much wind, although i was up near the fireline and it was still going pretty well. they hope it will die down. it's been very difficult. wind a major factor and it's been erratic all over the place here very difficult to predict. >> that makes it tough. thank you, joe. pet owners in pacifica on alert after reports of an aggressive coyote. it's been spotted near the lands end apartments on esplanade avenue. one resident says a coyote charged at him and his dog this morning. another says the animal could

so one side of the fire the wind is coming out of the east. other side of the fire the winds coming out of the southwest. so it makes it tough because we would like to know where the fire is going and up in lake county in that terrain, that's simply not going to happen. that said, the overall theme is decreasing wind over the next 24 hours. take outside live and we have sunshine over the financial district and looking all the way south. it is a very, very pleasant day outside. warm but not hot. san jose 77. santa rosa 77. livermore you're one of the warmer spots at 81. a brisk 64 in san francisco. despite the temperature difference during the day, we all kind of level off at night and we will do that again tonight. san rafael 56 for you. fremont 59. >> reporter: 58. redwood city overnight tonight 58 degrees. want to give you an update. a lot of you have interests in hawaii maybe you're vacationing there over the next couple of days. there's a hurricane which will make a close pass to the big island. it's going to weaken from a category 1 to a tropical storm tonight. and make a path just to the south of the southern tip of the big island likely late
thursday into friday. now, despite the fact that it won't be a hurricane passing by, a lot of moisture, a lot of rainfall, some areas of hawaii may receive up to 10 to 12 inches of rainfall over the next two or three days because of hurricane hilda. it will not have an impact here but this low pressure area will. you see that huge counter clockwise swirl. some rain offshore. it would be wonderful if that rain made it here. it won't. but we'll continue to get that southwest flow from the ocean. it will be with us for two more days so if you like the weather today, you should like it tomorrow and thursday because that low won't move much. our forecast won't change much. it will change a lot on friday. here comes the very large ridge of high pressure closing the door if you will on the onshore flow. the ocean is going nowhere. it's not going to get warmer. just the wind won't be coming from the ocean so to doesn't matter in our forecast. -- so it doesn't matter in our forecast. starting friday sunnier and hotter with some of you approaching 100 by the weekend. so not as much cloud cover tonight because the wind from the ocean is just beginning to decrease. that said we'll stay near or below average all the way

liquor road on "senter road." california lottery says this store has sold only winning tickets it's designated a lucky retailer. the store will receive a $5,000 bonus. >> somebody is going to buy the store they are so lucky. absolutely. paying more than advertised. a silicon valley company's solution to store overcharges. how a new price tag could also work against you. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
from time to time, we tell you about stores that get fined for charging customers more than the prices that are posted on the store shelves. as consumerwatch reporter julie watts explains, the bay area company now says it's got a solution to that problem. >> reporter: from incorrect price tags to out of date sales stickers, customers are often charged more at the register than the price tag advertises on the shelf. in fact, in the past two years, safeway, whole foods, walgreens, target and cvs have all paid steep fines for overcharging customers. in one case we found
supermarket customers were overcharged for about one out of every 50 items they bought. >> i think it happens in almost all the stores. it's just a matter of is it getting noticed or not. >> reporter: the department of weights and measures says it's usually human error. store workers can't keep up with the blizzard of sales and price changes that happen every week. >> prices go up and down all the time. >> reporter: now a silicon valley company says it's come up with a solution. [ non-english language ] is the founder of a company that makes electronic price tags. he says they guarantee the shelf tag and the cash register are always in sync. >> it's completely electronic no manual intervention required. they can instantly updates the signs. >> reporter: they enable retailers to change prices more often to remain competitive with online retailers that adjust prices all day long. >> these are like little web pages sitting on the shelve. >> reporter: kohl's began rolling them out in 2010 but declined to comment on how they have impacted business.
while the tags could make it easier for some stores to raise prices on a whim, ultimately consumers will end up paying less if they can trust the price on the shelf is actually the price they will be charged at the register. julie watts, kpix 5. how's this for a catch of the day? this video appearing to show a fisherman reeling in a drone has gone viral. the drone caught the entire thing on video. it was buzzing by a solved pier when the fisherman cast his line toward the device. it's tough to tell you about it appears the fisherman may have hooked his line on the drone before it then flew away. it's a well paying job in hot demand. jill schlesinger on why you may want to consider a career in nursing. reporter: if you're considering a career change, start by identifying an industry that pays well and is in need of more workers. nursing tops the list. there are a variety of educational options if you want to pursue a nursing career. if you have a bachelor's degree
in a nonscience-related field, you can apply to more than 200 accelerated programs to earn a bachelor's degree in nursing in two to 2 1/2 years. if your bachelor's is in a science field, you may be able to complete the degree in 12 to 18 months. nurses here in the bay area earn an average of over $125,000 a year. and job openings are likely to rise as employers replace thousands of workers leaving the field by 2018. many employers are seeking to beef up the number of male nurses. nationally, male nurses make up under 200,000 of the total 2.6 million rns. men entering nursing at mid career come from a variety of fields including social work, emergency medicine, public safety and the military. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5. ,,,,,,
