them. >> reporter: they also had spot fires so not only were they dealing with this huge fire in the warehouse, but the wind was blowing embers and creating wildland fires nearby so they actually had to call in cal fire. those are all out right now. but a lot of different agencies helping in this situation. luckily no injuries to firefighters. they are not sure of the cause. it doesn't appear to be suspicious. the roadways around this area have been reopened. but they just closed this one one azure road on mare island because neighbors are coming to look and it's unsafe. live on mare island, anne makovec, kpix 5. over in washington state investigators are trying to figure out what went wrong for three firefighters killed bat thing the "twist fire." the blaze in the cascade mountains has destroyed 16,000 acres. those three firefighters died

the fans were the raiders and the chargers. >> nfl officials have expressed frustration that up to now, there's been no viable proposal from oakland and time is running out. a vote on moving the team to l.a. could come before super bowl 50 in january. >> how much money did they spend to come to the conclusion that the chargers are a popular team in southern california? [ laughter ] >> hello? >> that will be $2 million. >> didn't the raiders used to play there? >> they did. >> although i have to say when the rams moved out of los angeles, i thought, if there's not going to be any teams in l.a., that's crazy not to say that anybody wants to see the raiders go to los angeles except los angeles. but still -- >> when there's all that money in los angeles. >> you go, brian! >> when there's all that money down there, you know they are going to end up with something. >> how's the weather? >> not me, probably. we have a nice weekend on tap. have you heard? we have the golden gate bridge not much happening on the bridge this morning. i'll leave the traffic to gianna.

this drone over the fire there's going to be consequences. >> reporter: photographers support the idea saying they don't want a small group of irresponsible people ruining it for everybody. the tip line is 844-376-6311. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. celebrity billionaire donald trump has a presidential campaign rally planned tonight at a stadium in alabama. 40,000 seat facility is in mobile, alabama, normally home to the university of south alabama football team. earlier this week, trump called for the deportation of illegal immigrants and questioned the birth right citizenship of their children. yesterday republican rival jeb bush criticized trump's plan. >> we are a diverse country. that's a virtue. that's a strength of our country. >> other republicans aim their

the hours to en work, i count down the hours to get to work. >> reporter: 44 horses call miwok home where campers learn to pamper their new best buddies from cleaning their hoofs to brushing their coats they are learning how to care for an animal which gives them a sense of responsibility and believe me not all the jobs are fun, either. >> they are not that bad. >> reporter: no? >> it's kind of just all part of the whole package, if you want to ride a horse you have to learn how to take care of the horse and do the colors. >> you have not met a person until you have met a horse person. these girls can one up anyone. >> reporter: they care for and prep their horses each day and, oh, yes, they ride, too, learning equestrian skills in a ring and eventually many graduate to trail riding through the marin headlands. friendships are formed and none bigger than the camper and her horse. >> i take care of her and she takes care of me. so we both love each other. >> reporter: yeah. you really do get attached, don't you? >> yes. >> i mean, it's one thing have

website so they can adjust their transportation plans on the days when work is being done. okay. speaking of bart, how about traffic on a friday? i think all things are light so far. >> no delays on mass transit this morning. caltrain, ace, muni on time, as well. discovery bay westbound four at bixler a big rig blocking part of the freeway. the rest of highway 4 starting to see a few brake lights near the antioch bridge. slow off the bridge. speeds just under 45 miles per hour in some spots but it improves westbound. gets better into pittsburg and towards the eastshore freeway. altamont pass business as usual. brake lights coming out of tracy on that westbound side.
typical slow-and-go conditions. 19 minutes altamont pass to 680. early-morning roadwork wrapping up on the eastbound side and a few brake lights towards the dublin interchange. eastbound though near 680 not seeing any trouble spots. san jose has been nice so far this morning all in the green along 280, 17, 101. northbound clear all the way as you work your way into the peninsula. no delays guadalupe parkway looking good. travel times northbound 87, 85 to 101 an e-z 8-minute ride. quiet into san francisco. a's playing the rays coliseum this evening at 7:05. a nice ride on the san mateo bridge. golden gate bridge looks good. no delays. here's brian with the forecast. >> in short, so far, so good and that kind of sums up the
weather as well as we have a little bit of drizzle out there to start the day with near the shoreline. and low overcast inland but aside from that it's fairly easy breezy friday to start out things with. numbers are in the low 60s with concord at 61. oakland 63 degrees. san francisco at 60. san jose 60 degrees. we are all waking up to overcast skies with the exception of san jose which at 5:00 reported clear skies. we have low pressure off the pacific northwest and high pressure over the desert southwest. this will not change. and neither will the forecast much. we have just the fog and low clouds. but then in the ten-day period the computer models go out this far, there's the suggestion that things will turn cooler and maybe wetter in the bay area. unusual, you know. september and october usually are warm and dry months and the idea that rain may be coming in that early is a little eyebrow raising. futurecast in the meantime next 24 hours we have low clouds offshore clear skies inland later in the day and then
tonight the low clouds come back into the bay area. so it's that old ebb and flow of low clouds nothing new there as we look over sfo clouds and drizzle early today just low 80s inland and then it remains mild right through the weekend. forecast highs are below average now. we are 6 degrees below average at concord. campbell 81. 77 at milpitas. over in the east bay it's going to be very nice. temperatures in the low 80s. up in the north bay, a little cooler than that. still plenty of sun later in the day. we'll start out overcast and in the extended forecast goal with "stratus quo," the usual low clouds in the morning and sun in the afternoon. we'll mix in a little bit of drizzle as well in the early going and dispense with it by 9:00 or 10:00 this morning. so typical friday and a pretty good weekend ahead. >> thank you. it started out as a calm day on the waters off the coast of santa barbara until a kayaker came face to face with "jaws." a shark sunk its teeth into a man's kayak and nearly into
him. >> it didn't just stop after that initial slam. the kayak started moving back and forth at which point i was seeing a lot of whitewater and splashing. >> i guess. connor lyon's friends nearby were stunned but able to paddle towards him to help him out. it was a crew of a nearby squid boat that pulled him to safety. connor says he wasn't scared, he was excited. >> how many of these shark attacks -- >> this is the most legit experience of my life. it's just so awesome, you know? just like completely -- i couldn't believe that i had just come face to face with the apex predator and now i'm sitting on a boat 100% safe. >> yeah. well, connor says despite the surprising experience he plans to get back into the water and go fishing with his friends, kind of like the surfer who went back out there. >> this guy seems jubilant, kind of stoked. >> i guess. >> you're a surfer. have you bumped into one of those? >> i have a plan. to punch them in the eyes.

history, art history, and religion, all of which can provide insight and understanding into behavior and cultures that are foreign to you. finally, whether you're going to school in the bay area or out of town, you will be happy that you took a writing composition class to help communicate your ideas clearly in any industry. in any industry. i'm jill schlesing,,,,,,,,
san rafael high school is turning to high technology to determine if any of its football players have potential concussions. the information comes from headbands with sensors in them. they go under the helmet. it emits radiation but only about as much as a cell phone. the bulldogs are the first bay area team to use the tri-x impact tester good morning, the pittsburgh pirates are 16-3 against the national league west this season. that's not good news for the giants, fighting for their play- off spot. and they have resorted to praying to score runs these days. but the real god last night, that man, charlie morton struck out 8, pitching 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball. bottom of the 6th 2-1, pittsburgh. two-run shot giants lose 4-0. and they fall 2 1/2 games behind the idle dodgers. former 49er linebacker chris borland who retired in march after one season because
of concussion fears was interviewed by espn and said five months after retirement he has no regrets walking away from a game he says is too violent. >> it's destructive. you don't have to do it, like i don't right now. um, it just strikes you as too violent, really. >> too violent for what? >> just in general. i think it's just to me it's like boxing or mma. it's just my opinion. i just think it's too destructive. >> borland was potentially going to make millions after taking over for patrick willis at inside linebacker for san francisco. he walked away from that. sunday 49ers and cowboys at 5:00. we be there pre-game at 4:30. and game day on location all from levi's stadium. a great sunday of football. i'm dennis o'donnell. see you sunday. we l thank you, dennis. play of the day, guess who is making some noise on the pga. at least in this round.

15 different spot fires in the grass fields behind us here. so not only was this a three- alarm structure fire, but we also had to have a wildland response to come out and assist us with the multiple grassfires we had. >> reporter: now, they had to shut down highway 37 for a while. that's been since been reopened. no injuries to firefighters. the cause is under investigation. there is no official "shelter in place" order for the surrounding communities. that's mainly vallejo here off mare island. firefighters say the smoke is dissipating by the time it gets into those residential neighborhoods. anne makovec, kpix 5. firefighters meanwhile continue to battle the "tesla fire" near livermore. the good news this morning, firefighters have gained a little bit of ground. it's 45% contained with 2500 acres burned. chopper 5 got a much closer:

>> looking good. we have some low clouds along the shoreline. the big change is there is mother drizzle so you might have to, oh!! work the windshield wipers but aside from that. it looks like it's pretty much the same as yesterday which is a lot of low clouds to start out at the shoreline. as we look toward sfo, 61 concord, oakland 63, livermore 64 and in san francisco 60 degrees. low pressure off the gulf of alaska is keeping things nice and moist along the shoreline. and high pressure nice and mild inland. so cool along the coast and inland temperatures in the low 80s. 84 fairfield. 75 fremont. here in san francisco, 66. and is oakland 72 degrees today. not bad at all. hope traffic is doing just as well, gianna. >> it's doing okay for the most part no accidents to report just slow conditions building at the bay bridge toll plaza. metering lights are off. delays are starting to stack up there to beyond the east lot there to the overpass there but looks like traffic so far "friday light" coming off the
eastshore freeway. no delays on westbound 580 headed towards the bay bridge. oakland 880 northbound so far it's been a pretty easy ride southbound you're going to see a few brake lights in hayward but not too many problems later on. expect delays on 880 because of the a's game this evening. heads up on the golden gate ferry delays up to 15 minutes expected today and through the weekend. it's because of construction work at the san francisco ferry terminal. as drones become easier to purchase, there is a growing number of problems involving drones. kpix 5's kiet do joins us now with details of a state hotline for people to report potential dangers. >> reporter: good morning. the state says that amateur drone operators may not intend to cause all these problems but they are putting a lot of people at risk. so now the state is just trying to get ahead of the problem. reporter: the state of california has taken an
unprecedented step in cracking down on irresponsible drone users by providing a way for the public to help law enforcement. >> much like a crime tip line where if you know something about a crime that has occurred or have information that might help investigators, same thing except this applies to people who are irresponsibly operating drones. >> reporter: kelly huston deputy director of the california governor's office of emergency services says the statewide 800 number was activated this week. tipsters can leave valuable information for investigators about reckless drone use. >> this is an avenue to focus on that small section of hobby drone owners who are intentionally flying their drones in a wind advisory endangers emergency operations or puts first responders in harm's way. >> reporter: more than a dozen hobby drones have interfered with or grounded aircraft during this fire season and investigators need help to find a needle in a haystack.
>> drones spotted by pilots, but it's hard to track who is flying the drones. >> drone operators are hopefully seeing this and going, okay, you know, if i fly this drone over the wildfire there will be photographers. >> reporter: jeff hall likes the idea of more eyes in the sky to stop those putting others in harm's way. >> it's a no-brainer and i don't want people like that giving people like us a bad name in having use for what it shouldn't be. when there's so many great purposes for it. >> reporter: the new drone tip line is 844-376-6311. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. thousands of people want san francisco police officers to wear body cameras. 35,000 signatures are collected for a petition in response to this video that went viral this week. you can see several officers on top of the man that has a
