well veronica, ken, the weather out here, the temperatures, it is cooler out here, but the wind is still an issue. at one point 90 minutes ago, the photo journalist and i tried to get out of our truck and we struggled to open the truck doors out here at tesla road. that is what firefighters are facing trying to stop this fire
from growing. ripping up valleys leaving post apocalyptic scenes in its wake, the tesla fire in alameda county chewed through 2500 acres in no time flat. dry grass and trees contributed but the wind was the real culprit. >> we have strong winds coming through the night. >> reporter: there were stands of oak trees transstormed into smoldering kindling and
firefighters were struggleing to keep up. >> they are aggressive, and at times they have to pull back and besupported by air operations and dozer operations as well. >> reporter: that is when air tankers shrouded in smoke took over dropping retardant. the fire jumped the alameda county line into san joaquin. the firefighters are thankful for small victories. >> we take our successes on a
smaller scale. we had fire making the runs at some structures and we have bumped the fire off of those structures. >> reporter: one structure not a house did burn in this fire some time this afternoon. but we did see example after example out here on tesla road where homes, where they had proper defensible space. the house itself was still standing. a testament to the work these firefighters are doing out here. the fire is about 5% contain. they will be out here all night long working on this fire. we are told that cal fire will put its spotter plane up in the morning to see how much bigger it has gotten. live in alameda county. andria borba, kpix5. the single windiest spot in the entire bay area is altamont pass right now. 35 miles an hour wind gusts. that is close to where this fire is burning right now. let's look forward through the night into tomorrow. winds will likely relax overnight. in the morning, 15 to 20 miles an hour wind gusts but once
again, the wind picks up, the on shore flow. altamont pass is one of the gaps where we see the strongest winds and we will see it again tomorrow with wind gusts up to 30 miles an hour. not terribly hot, but it will be windy. we may see some rain in the extended forecast. find out when coming up. >> thank you paul. all too often, these fires can turn deadly. tonight, we learned three u.s. forest service firefighters have been killed battling a raging wild fire in washington state. that fire is one of 88 wild fires burning across seven western states. crews are so overwhelmed, military crews are training to help them out. >> you can pull it over your head, get down on the ground, get your feet in. >> teams of soldiers will be deployed to the fire line
starting this weekend. so we are used to opening up our bags at sports stadiums and airports, now a movie theater is adding a bag check. christin ayers put it to the test. >> reporter: this is one of four regal cinemas in the bay area that has this new security policy. essentially you buy a ticket, see a movie here, you agree to have your bag checked. the warnings are posted front and center on the box office. backpacks and bags of any kind are subject to inspection. they weren't joking. we bought a ticket here at berkeley's united artist theater and went inside. an usher took my ticket and promptly peered into my purse. the security crack down is in effect at all regal cinema in response to deadly theater shootings, most recently this theater in louisiana where a man opened fire killing two
women. regal entertainment group posted a statement saying we realize this procedure can cause some inconvenience. but hope the flaws are minor compared to the increased safety. most movie goers say safety outweighs anything. >> making sure they don't have guns is important. >> reporter: there has been some backlash. >> it is about invasion of privacy. >> reporter: but kelly miller says it is something she is willing to deal with. >> i have a baby. i would feel much safer for my baby knowing she was going to the movies, that is one less thing to worry about. >> reporter: but others say it is a sad sign of the times. >> this is america and things are messed upright now. >> reporter: now the good news here is that the check that i went through at least was so cursory i think any movie goer could have easily snuck in that extra bag of m and ms or a
bottle of water. reporting live, christin ayers, kpix5. >> also tonight, san francisco police want you to take a good look at the guy in this surveillance video. he stuck a gun right in this store clerk's side. then he cleaned out the cash drawer. this happened back on august 8 at a gas station in the engel side. the clerk was not hurt. police want you to call them if you recognize this robber. san jose has a plan to fight crime while taking out the trash. the city wants to install license plate readers on the garbage trucks. any hits on stolen cars would be sent back to police. the mayor and at least one garbage company are on board, but the idea would need a legal review first. san francisco is accusing uber of hiring violent criminals as drivers. mike sugerman on the disturbing
evidence that rapists, kidnappers, and ian killers have slipped through the cracks. >> we have come to learn there are drivers who are convicted sex offenders. thieves, burglars, kidnappers, and a convicted murder. >> reporter: the da is going after uber saying it is fooling the public when they say they have the best background checks the law allows. but because they don't take fingerprints, they can't be sure the person is who she or she says they are and can't find criminal records more than seven years old. >> would you take uber? >> i don't take uber. what i tell people is you should go in knowing what the possibilities are. >> we have sought to be responsive to some of the concerns the da has raised in how in the way we have talked in detail about our background
check process, we will continue to do that. >> i have an uber app. but you are not making me feel any better. >> you should, when you open the app, you see your driver's star rating. you can wait inside while he or she comes to pick you up. >> but what if they were a rapest seven years ago? >> we go back seven years. >> eight years. >> no system is full proof. >> reporter: again, the da is not saying criminals can't be rehabilitated. do their time and get another job. he is just going after uber's background checks. in san francisco, mike sugerman, kpix5. >> da's office went after lyft in an earlier lawsuit. that ride share company eventually settled. a new poll reveals the race for the white house is closer than ever. donald trump trails hillary clinton by just six points. the gap was 16 points just a month ago. meanwhile, we are learning more about the private e-mail account clinton used while she
was secretary of state. cbs news uncovered two e-mails some say contained classified information. jan crawford has details. >> reporter: the two e-mails the intelligence community says had classified information were uncovered during the attack in benghazi libya that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. the first e-mail from april 2011 was forwarded to an aide with the intelligence reports on libyan troop strength and movements. the second e-mail forwarded by aide jacob sullivan outlined reports of possible arrest in connection with the benghazi attacks. the e-mails are among the 30,000 clinton turned over to the state department from her private server. clinton has insisted there was no classified information on her server. >> whether it was a personal account or a government account, i did not send classified material and i did
not receive any material that was marketed or designated classified which is the way you know whether something is. >> reporter: the state department filed court papers this afternoon saying it does not believe that any personal computing device was issued by the department to clinton. and as for that server, her attorney confirmed it was wiped clean of all its data before she turned it over to the fbi. jan crawford, cbs news, washington. the secret is out. the customer data list from the ashley madison hack is now searchable online. they cater to married people looking to have affairs. a recent hack exposed about 32 million customer names. e-mails, and physical addresses. around 15,000 of those e-mails traced back to u.s. government accounts. >> if those are legitimate, if this activity can be directly matched with real people and people who might hold sensitive
office, that holds potential for blackmail. >> reporter: the fbi is investigating the hack tonight. one famous name on that list, former 19 kids and counting star josh duggar. he reportedly had two monthly subscriptions. he admitted to molesting five minors when he was a teenager. tonight, jared fogle is looking at prison time after agrees to plead guilty to child important charges. he also admitted he paid to have sex with two teen girls between 2010 and 2013. according to court documents, he offered one of the teens money to find him another girl to have sex with and told her, the younger the better. fogle faces up to 12-and-a-half years in prison. his wife is filing for divorce. >> governor brown fired back at our own phil matier. a little fooling around there. the question phil kept asking

prove it. >> phil, you do very well in this occupation of yours and i do pretty well as well. you run your business and i will run my business. >> reporter: that was governor jerry brown responding to our repeated questions about how the state plans to come up with the $59 billion needed to fix the state's crumbling roads. >> this is a big challenge. how are we going to get to the end of it isn't exactly clear this morning. >> reporter: there is nothing new about a politician being evasive when talking taxes but the governor's remarks were made to put heat on lawmakers to get something done. >> california needs to fix our roads and we need to do it now. >> reporter: so far, some of the ideas being debated include hiking the state gas tax by 12 cents a gallon, upping the diesel tax by 20 cents. adding a $100 registration fee
to electric cars. when we asked the governor where he stood? >> i appreciate the detail of your question, but my approach to bringing people together is not to prematurely close the door. so, i am for a solution, i'm working on it. >> but you are in front of all these people saying something has to be done. if they do it, will you sign it? >> ly be a catalytic agent to make sure whatever they want has a decent chance of getting done. >> reporter: i will leave it up to you to decide where the governor stands but he is trying to stay above democrats an republicans in the hopes of pulling the two-thirds major needed to get anything done. phil matier, kpix5. tonight, the drought is causing parts of california to sink faster than anyone previously thought. some spots in the central valley are falling by two feet a year. we are not kidding. nasa's satellite data shows the state has lost 16 trillion gallons of water in the past four years.

but take away something people cool down to see. it is upsetting. >> reporter: in the 11 years it has been here, the labyrinth has been vandalized before, but this time is one of the worst. >> disappointed? >> yeah. >> reporter: the perfectly placed rocks that gave the labyrinth itself shape are gone. apparently thrown into the sea. left behind, nothing. but dust and dirt. so when people like brian dixon all the way from new york show up to see an intact labyrinth, you understand the let down. >> i wanted to walk through it. >> so for people who know what they are for, this is pretty disappointing for them. >> reporter: disappointment is a funny thing here. colleen, the person who maintains the labyrinth out of the goodness of her heart doesn't feel that disappointed it is gone. >> every time i go and do a sweep and maintain the rocks, i know at that moment, that is it. you know. i don't know what it will look like the moment i leave.
