some homes. but they managed to put out the fire before a damaged. any structures. despite the busy night. the fire officials we talked to actually say there were fewer fires this 4th of july for last. >> temperatures were slightly lower last compared to the year before and humidities were slightly higher and that no doubt contributed to a lot of grass fires that might have started taking hold not doing so last night. >> most of the cars in contra costa county. we're in the pittsburgh antioch area. and there are also several medical calls related to fireworks. they are supposed to give us some more details about what happened later in the week. >> and take a look at the mess that was left behind. this is from san francisco where on the left side is the before on the right side is the after pictures of 3rd street and burke avenue where public works. crews had a tough job cleaning up all the debris that was dumped by people who are setting off illegal fireworks. also a busy scene

8:13 am
8:14 am
>> it 14 and while firefighters in the bay area or very busy over the holiday weekend. dave actually been busy up and down the state
8:15 am
with wild fires for weeks. yeah. as a matter of right now about dozen fires are actively burning statewide. crews say the hot, dry conditions aren't helping it feels a lot hotter than it typically does in july. nancy loo has the story. and ongoing air attack in shasta county is helping. but the salt fire rages on. >> a spark from a vehicle along i 5 ignited the fire last week and it is now grown to about 11,000 acres at least 27 homes have been destroyed so far. and it happened within i want to say like 15 minutes. it was just exploding. tiffany barber evacuated. her home in lake had along with her fiance and their 2 young sons just in time. but they have lost everything it seems so surreal. i i'm still heartbroken. you know, i can't look at the photos without crying. >> it's it's very hard. you know, even just not even the things that we buy. but. you know, i have memory boxes from

8:17 am
keeping law enforcement and firefighters busy crews even deployed a drone. one of the thoughts was to use that drone as additional bit of technology to try to provide us with locations on aerial fireworks. so we've got the fireworks behind us for the holiday goes, but they're still afraid people are going to set them off week. so worried about the weather. you know, it's going to brutally hot, i guess for some come this weekend. john. yeah. and with that brutally hot weather guys comes increased fire risk. so if there are any fireworks left. >> could result in an even more problematic situation, at least for the 4th itself. we weren't too terribly hot and humidity was actually relatively high throughout the weekend and that did help to suppress fire danger just a little bit. we're still in the midst of that pattern. but right at the tail end of it now today and tomorrow. our last of our ocean cool the days. and you can see that that low cloud cover from her berkeley hills cam. can't miss it as you're getting out
8:18 am
there. some of our inland areas are under some clear skies. but really most of us this morning are sitting under that gray, which is still hovering, especially on the peninsula and on bayside areas itself. now our inland in bayside cities will get a solid dose of sunshine later on. i'm expecting it to remain pretty cloudy at the coastline, though. so don't expect a lot of sun if you're in areas like afternoon bayer stinson beach. high pressure is building stronger and that's going to cut off this ocean influence starting on thursday, meaning that coastal areas will still remain cool, but our inland areas are going to start to see temperatures soaring in the meantime today and tomorrow are good days to enjoy, especially for in the neighbors that are about to be warming up so much 50's 60's for your highs near the coastline. while it will be 60's and 70's for most of our beside cities. carlos in redwood city each at 74 degrees. south bay temperatures rising to the upper 70's, which is cooler than yesterday, san jose at 77 for your high pleasanton and livermore each at 78 while hayward through oakland mostly in the 60's concord walnut
