can expect. hey there guys we are looking at lots of sunshine today already this morning sitting in the clear skies all the way out to the coastline. >>just a few clouds on the peninsula but still pretty bright for those of you on the peninsula. berkeley obviously getting a good dose of sunshine already right now temperatures are in the 50's and 60's cool start to the morning and a little on the breezy side so go ahead, but on the light jacket this morning as you step outside. later on today, look for to temperatures that won't be quite as warm as yesterday still a warm afternoon though for inland spots with highs back into the 80's inland, 60's and 70's along the bay in khost dari. >>thank you john 7 o'clock and happening now firefighters are trying to contain 2 big fires burning in the south bay. on the left you can see the response from the air and ground to the big fire in santa clara county. and on the right that's the park fire. so we've got the crews fire and the park fire. both of them burning. but with different results so far. the one on the
left being problematic. it's only 15% contained the one on the right. the park fire is 70% contained. so we do want to start with the one that is more out of control this morning. >>yeah of activation orders again as mentioned lifted at morgan hill says not to worry about that it's the ones that remain in place for the gilroy area that's where kron four's will tran is standing by with the latest will. >>james you might have seen a cal fire truck race right behind me they're crisscrossing this area keeping a close eye on the situation. they me tell you it is not windy and i'm thankful for that because the fire continues to burn and look at the hillside it is so dry. but the one right behind me just went up in flames. they knew this area would be a problematic area which is why they evacuated people. yesterday along this area, this is canyon out a road.
that home often the distance right there it's empty we never saw any lights turn on because they were told to leave this area in fact the media we were allowed to drive through barricades just to give you this vantage point you've been watching it as much as i have from this location that smoky air it has died down considerably thank goodness because for a while you could not even see the terrain next one hill taller than the other. now you can clearly make out the texture. this hillside here let me show you some video that we got however, when we arrived here at around 4.50 in the morning and you could see at that particular time this section of the hillside was up in flames, the fire fighters they kept close eye on the situation. they knocked it down as best as they could hoping that it would not spread to a nearby hill size and into a problem to gilroy to the outlets area which by the way is only a few miles from this location. and of course where the residential areas are this is a little bit more of a remote area and the
key word is remote which is why they had to do this james and area yesterday. they instantly took to the air because this area is hard to drive through it's not like santa rosa, where you can drive through the neighborhood and plug in your hose at the fire hydrant no they had to use air drops to knock down the flames. fortunately they did that but i got to tell you 2 structures caught on fire destroyed in fact, let's listen to one person described the fire. >>i could see the big thick black smoke and the huge flames, the flames where the house was burning were over the trees you could see it above the trees and the line the fire line was real big. >>right now they do not know the cause of the fire and generally they don't focus on that unless it's so apparent but they will know the cause of the fire for quite some
time as far as containment we are hearing that he could take several days before we get containment right now we do know they cal fire at any moment should have an update. covering up wildfires throughout the years right around 7 o'clock in the morning is and we have an update but as we speak right now 1500 acres burned 15% containment hopefully with these conditions where it's not windy. james and area that will get the containment percentage up back to you ok, thanks a lot for the update will. >>well meantime let's give you a quick update on that morgan hill fire where firefighters do have the upper hand now which is good news. officials are looking now to see if that fire was perhaps started by fireworks, neighbors say they do in fact remember hearing fireworks going off before they smelled the smoke. >>about 10 o'clock last night we heard some fireworks going off and after them. maybe half an hour after that we heard. >>sirens going down it just kept going off no one you know
for a lot to me as people were trying to celebrate in. >>unfortunately things bad things happen when you're doing a dry area like and there you can see up on the hill there. and you can still see some smoldering going on up on the hill. >>well easton road at morgan hill is still closed except for local traffic. and in the east bay, some neighbors and hey we're not only have to deal with illegal fireworks but also with sideshows take a listen. >>that's what kron 4 viewers heard and saw you are sending us this video the sideshow they say happened at the corner of florida and miami streets in hayward. >>if you're saying the fireworks in the sideshows went on until about 2 in the morning. >>and look at this mess left behind in antioch from people shooting off fireworks trash and all kinds of fireworks debris in a parking lot at lone tree elementary school. they were spotted by a neighbor who posted this on
facebook and he saw somebody with a broom but 20 volunteers saw that picture ended up going over in cleaning up the mess. with all the fireworks there were more than 67 fires that broke out in contra costa county alone over the weekend and more than a dozen we know were caused by illegal fireworks so far one of those fires threaten more than 20 homes in pittsburgh. kron four's taylor, the sacking has that story. >>last night it was in my experience of 15 years by far the lows. the most extreme use of illegal fireworks under stage. it was just incredible on the 4th of july. >>legal fireworks in contra costa county spark more fires in 5 hours. what firefighters typically see throughout an entire cern month contra costa fire captain george lang says the department put out 67 fires from 07:00pm to midnight, including this large one near oak hills and southwood drive in pittsburgh, extremely dangerous, especially because we're so busy. >>we didn't have a number of
