5:04 pm
uh compared to earlier when the fire was earlier in the day. >>i know this is a pretty sparsely populated area you can see the rugged terrain which obviously makes this a tough fight from the ground how many people are we talking a in terms of these evacuations any idea. >>you know specific saw i'm not a i'm not a 100% sure on quiet doubt be a question but probably better answer by the county sheriff that more specific numbers on fact only to close. >>well robert we are looking at some live pictures right aerial dumps that are going on are you able to address this fire from the ground at all it does look like rugged terrain. >>uh yeah like it, but we will get that in there and they are may access. army engine, no 13 he in crews are all in there, i'm making good so of the retardant drops do help low the progress of the fire. all

5:07 pm
they're going to get a little bit of a break watch what happens with the future wind gust as we take you through the night tonight. those winds begin to subside which is pretty typical for this time of year. and then as we head through the day tomorrow and guess what those winds start to pick up again in the afternoon you start to see some color showing up some yellows on the screen. those winds gusting of maybe a 20 miles per hour in and around near that fire. so certainly going to want to be aware hopefully they can get a handle on that fire before those winds start to kick up again of course this evening, those winds are blowing pretty good in around that fire right now that can spread the sparks in her guys back to you. thank you lawrence we first told you about this fire in the evacuations through a push alert make sure you download the kron 4 mobile app to always get the latest breaking news, happening in your neighborhood. our other top story tonight, a bay area city at the center of the sanctuary movement now finding itself possibly in conflict with its own policies. yeah this after the discovery that immigration authorities have used oakland airport. >>to deport thousands of immigrants kron four's dan kerman live for us at airport with more dan. forte of
5:08 pm
oakland which runs oakland airport says they didn't know about this until a week ago the policy was stopped about a year ago. >>in addition to that port of oakland saying they don't believe they violated the city's sanctuary policy in terms of what they did this is happening on chartered flights at this airport but a lot of questions remain at a many questions remain for the mayor of oakland. the city of oakland and its mayor libby shaft been at the forefront of the sanctuary movement. >>with the mayor even warning residents that ice raids were to come that lies in stark contrast to new research from the university of washington's center for human rights which shows from 2010 to 2018. i started nearly a 1000 flights out of oakland airport to deport people the total number >>people directly get 40 the oakland airport. i'm trying to percent 2010 is 26,000. 800 see she said according to no

5:10 pm
matter as it is of great interest to the mayor and our oakland values. we need to understand if this violated oakland sanctuary city policy before we can address it. ice spokesman says that these chartered flights were never used out of san jose airport for san francisco airport of course the question that remains. >>is if these flights are not happening out of y of the 3 airports now are people being taken by car somewhere else or are they using commercial flights live in oakland airport. dan kerman kron 4 news all right and other big story tonight, a santa rosa priest has been suspended by the diocese for allegedly stealing. >>nearly $100,000 kron four's maureen kelly reports that at this point it's unclear if the priest will face any criminal charges. >>according to the diocese of santa rosa this all came to light after father oscar diaz got into a car wreck back on june 19th. it was then first responders found bags of money in his car. more than $18,000

5:21 pm
fog going to spread in the bay, but all the way to the interior valleys overnight tonight you can stay nice and clear inland of course we have had the fires to be concerned about i think by the end of the week fire danger is going to be elevated not going to see those strong offshore winds that could be very dangerous the fires but it's going to be very very hot of course the dry grass around into the sea breeze in the afternoon that can start the fire is moving along pretty well but the fog is moving in along the coastline right now we'll see more that overnight tonight and then maybe just inside the bay. i don't think it's going to penetrate all the way to the interior valleys. high pressure just trying to build in here that's going to change everything but the winds will be kicking up in the afternoon hours some 15 even 20 mile an hour be showing up in the next couple days in the afternoon. so certainly enough to blow around around some of the fires that they do get started temperature of 85 degrees right now in san jose to 88 and sunny in fremont still hot 93 in livermore 94 degrees in concord a cool 56 are right on the coastline of pacifica and 63 degrees in san francisco. overnight tonight we will see
