8:01 pm
fast and furious in american canyon. it has already grown to 150 acres. we are even hearing reports of people smelling smoke as far away as oakland. here's a look at what we know right now. american canyon road is shut down because of this fire evacuation warnings east of highway 29 or broadway. now in effect right now, those are just warnings. we're staying in contact with officials and we will let you know as soon as that changes or if those warnings are lifted. and here's a closer look at where the fire is burning happening near newell drive has not far from american canyon high school. you can actually see on the map. broadway street all evacuation warnings are to the east of broadway street. you can also see where american canyon road is. and again right now that road a major thoroughfare is closed because of the fire. >> this is a time lapse video this evening of how things looked within the last hour or
8:02 pm
so when we first or last left you on kron 4 news at 6. we want to talk live now with cal fire about the situation that is unfolding in american canyon tonight. joining us to discuss more about the scene that is unfolding is eric hernandez with cal fire. erica, thanks so much for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 8. >> can you hear us? all right. maybe we're waiting to get that connection. going while we do that, we do have this new video showing the fire from the canyon area is the canyon ridge. apartments in american canyon are close by. the view is from the backyard facing the training area. now. >> you know those folks who are in that particular area. they're just dealing with obviously this fire has just grown just very rapidly in the last hours soap. and when we last left you on kron 4 news at 6. we're still trying to figure out exactly how many acres are burning. we're hearing anywhere from 40 acres
8:03 pm
now we've learned that this is now grown to a 150 acres and even worse, those folks in that area are without power because of the power safety, public safety power shut-offs from pg and e. let's check in with our chief meteorologists about weather conditions in the area of the fire right now while we're waiting to get cal fire on the line watching these winds. we've seen those gusts over 30 miles per hour this afternoon. they have. >> subsided a little bit. we're still gusting over 20 miles per hour. you can see will drive is located. you can see american canyon drive, but overall the winds have been coming from the north northwest. and so that's a dangerous wind at this time you're seeing those winds travel on the mound here, of course, is going play with the departure probably begin to twist in and around some of the mountain topography here. but you're seeing these winds blowing in this direction. and so, yeah, the fire certainly has a chance to spread into some of the urban areas in and around that area. so that's why they're evacuating some of
8:04 pm
those just to the east of 29 there those areas are the places that are closest to that fire and can be affected in around that fire. now the winds are going to continue switch around even though we're seeing more of the northerly component to that win. there's nothing to say that all of us and we can see a quick drivers of a northeasterly wind and then all of a sudden you've got a whole nother problem that starts to bring that fire back in this direction. and so that's we don't want to have we haven't seen that happen just yet. but that certainly that possibility in these kind of conditions. and that will bring that right back in to many of the urban areas in and around those homes extremely dangerous fire conditions continuing there as we head through the evening hours with that active fire and more winds expected overnight tonight. now not only there. we're seeing strong gusty winds across the entire bay area. in fact, across almost all of california that northerly wind has kicked in. this is traditionally that time of year where historically we've had some
8:05 pm
seeing some of our worst fires in the bay area. and in california has some of the fires are quick get going. and once they start, they can spread quite rapidly in these kind of conditions and the couple with that, of course, we've got the drought years and years of all that fuel kind of building many of these areas. so red flag warnings do bet posted up across much of the bay area in the north bay into the east bay. also now including the santa cruz mountains expecting those gusty winds, maybe as high as 60 maybe 70 mile an hour gusts. i think across some of the mountain peaks near knapp and say molina possibly toward the diablo range overnight tonight. but it has been very gusty all around the bay area. in fact, here's the very latest forecast on some of those winds. expecting those winds to continue tonight. now it's going to be interesting down below in some of the urban areas, those winds may back off just a little bit. now that said, look at all that purple that begins to show they're not just northeast of napa. those are some of those stronger winds,
8:06 pm
those offshore winds likely to % develop the mountain tops there, 50, maybe even 60, maybe even 70 mile an hour gusts across some of those mountain ranges that continues overnight tonight into early tomorrow morning. may subside just a little bit. in fact, may back off just a little bit as we head in toward the middle of the morning then all of a sudden it starts to ramp back up again about 10 o'clock or so another impulse of strong gusty dry air rolls back into the bay area and that will keep the fire danger could going not only in the north bay but also in the east bay and into the santa cruz mountains as well. i think by the afternoon things finally will begin to subside as it looks like those winds will become more westerly and that means we'll start to see more of the moisture content that runs a lot higher from that ocean air that should begin to subside any of the fire danger around the bay area. but right now it looks like exceeding fire danger throughout the night tonight and into the day tomorrow. i think by tomorrow afternoon we can breathe a sigh relief. but tonight there's an active fire and dangerous fire conditions continued around much of the
8:07 pm
bay area. guys, back to lawrence. thank you. will continue to follow this and check in with you in just a few moments. and now we understand that the cal fire representative is on the line and can and as can you hear us. >> yes, i can hear you. thank you so much for being with us. just give us a update on the status of this fire right now in american canyon. >> currently we're at a 150 acres. but the air for think it we had no injuries reported no structures lost candidate. the fire talk to their medication and all 34 to note that all thought, know my highway in american canyon that kind of america. 10 years. it's under an evacuation warning. >> do you you mention the fact no injuries reported at this point. any idea on if this fire is going to continue to grow overnight and what are your concerns as we now move into the overnight hours.

8:11 pm
particular homes or any structures that are outside of that remote area. >> as of right now. no. i mean, activation warning has been issued. bill. you know with winship. if we do get wages, that could change however, right we're still expecting they would do shipping to the was it the way from the actual kind american canyon. >> well, i'm glad to hear that. you do say if you feel you're getting a handle on this blaze. what gives you reason to say that. >> yeah. so we have been able communicate our ground truth and they are making progress. the reported with their is their commander. and so that the reports that we're getting right now. >> but you're at 0% containment. all you. all right. erica hernandez with cal fire. thank you for helping us understand more about what's happening right

8:13 pm
attack options because the visibility and whatnot as lawrence mentioned earlier, this is a red flag warning that we remain in this area and across huge chunks of the of the bay area. it's breezy and dry out here right now. we've heard a dozer crews that are up there on the hillside here. we've also heard the faint sound chainsaws. so crews still very busy out there trying to cut those fire lines. we know that there is evacuation warnings that are in place and that's for the areas that are east of broadway highway 29, we know between watson lane, american canyon road and many drive for us as we were driving here from the berkeley hills about an hour ago up highway 80. you can see the large plumes of smoke that we're making their way across the freeway. of course, certainly got people pumping the brakes along the freeway, taking a look at and all the smoke that was moving through. we've heard from people on throughout our viewing area, especially in the east bay as far as oakland saying that there are set smelling the smoke people in
8:14 pm
valais. of course, we're only about 5 miles for this fires burning north of a white house. the people there, of course, seeing the spokane and definitely catching the attention of people in this immediate area here. obviously we're not in an evacuation zone here or at least the warning zone here. but it's gotten people that are coming out. taking a look at what's happening. of course, everybody's asking, hey, what's the cause. but the cough. what's the cause of course, we don't know that at this at this time. but crews are are still of course, trying to work to put out this fire quickly. these are difficult conditions treacherous conditions for people that live in these areas where fire can become endangered. you're always suggested to have go bags. it's always suggested that you take some sort fire safety precautions and also heed the warnings don't get to the point where it's too late and rose can get crowded emergency crews need access in order to get in and knock out these fires quickly. again, we're looking at 25% containment. so the cruiser still going to be out here working tonight. hopefully they can not continue to get a good handle

8:19 pm
was broad waste fraud way on a highway 29 there in american canyon. yeah, we just got off the phone officials with cal fire who now say that. >> 150 acres have burned just looking at the cal fire website. they're now saying that this is at 25% containment. so erick hernandez with cal fire was telling us a few moments ago. they were making good progress on trying to contain and it seems s they are doing so no injuries reported. no structures damaged. they were saying that this is a pretty remote area. but still very close to a number in american canyon some homes and some. schools and other areas in that particular section of napa county. that is the situation that is unfolding right now. we do want to go to kron. 4 chief meteorologist lawrence karnow tracking the very latest. a wind that are being felt right now. that area. yeah. it's subside a little bit. that's the good news. we have some a gust over
8:20 pm
30, even 36 miles per hour in that area. and firefighters will tell you that once those winds exceed about 40 miles an hour. so they just kind of back away. they don't try to stop the fire. they just try to save the people that might be involved and that kind of situation. we haven't reached that point tonight, but it's still a very, very active a very dangerous situation with those winds blowing over 18, even 20 miles an hour. >> in and around an active fire like put up here on the screen to you can see the areas shaded in red. that's actually where the red flag warning is located. this place is just outside of that. nonetheless, you get those winds that are blowing in that area and anywhere around the bay area and you get those nice dry grass fields while that thing can get a pretty explosive in a hurry. so people are evacuating. now. they're evacuating people. you can see along parts 29 right here, right along this location. and also you can see american canyon road. they're evacuating in this area here generally as they're trying to people away from what could be a change in the wind direction
8:21 pm
right now winds are moving mainly to a northeasterly direction in this direction right here. should that change, though. and i'm seeing on my computer models of the winds are going to want to switch their go on to become more northerly overnight tonight and that's why it's so important for these firefighters to really get a firm grip on this fire overnight tonight by late tonight, about 3 o'clock in the morning or so. all the winds start to do this. that's not what we want to see. that would blow that fire. all those hot embers back toward a populated area where there are numerous homes where people live. that's not what we want to see happen tonight. right it's still active. they've still got long ways to go. it's good that they made some headway on this. but again, there's a very, very dry area as well. so overnight tonight it's not only them that we're concerned about that as much of the bay area. here's the very latest on our forecast model with some of the fire danger up and you can see places inland parts of the east bay and also the north bay looking for some higher fire danger overnight tonight. it does begin to subside with
8:22 pm
decreasing winds. but then again, you watch a pick up as we head toward the middle of the morning tomorrow. and there you go. another round, another in polls of strong dry winds kicking up around the bay area making these very dangerous fire danger running least until tomorrow afternoon. guys, back to you. lawrence. thanks so much. more breaking news tonight. this time from the sports world. >> las vegas raiders head coach jon gruden has stepped down from his job. yeah. this comes after new reports detail offensive language group news and e-mails dating back years kron 4 sports reporter kylen mills joins us here in the studio. she has the latest on what happened and what this is going to mean for the team. highland. >> pam and jonathan on friday, wall street journal report details an e-mail from 2011 were jon gruden made a racist remark when referring. >> to the nfl players association executive director. it turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg tonight, the new york times uncovered emails were grew news racist misogynistic and anti-gay language

8:31 pm
the last few 150 acres. fortunately, though, jonathan, as you know now 25% containment. let's hope those containment numbers continue to grow standing by live in american canyon tonight with the very latest as our reporter dan thorn dan, are you noticing any difference in the winds. >> you have a jonathan still just a little breezy out here. definitely dry. but we've noticed that the preserve the know preserve, which is right here over my shoulder. it's a little hard to see considering how dark it is out here. looks like fire crews have been continuous progress on this fire which broke out around 06:11pm tonight and quickly grew. and in terms of acreage, some people living here and that the cul de sac telling us that they were able to see these flames is really high just over here on this on this ridge line here. crews were able to get out here quickly and start working on knocking down this fire as we were heading from the berkeley hills 80 eastbound towards
8:32 pm
american canyon. you can see all the smoke carrying a cross. the freeway there making its way into some of the communities people telling us as far as oakland that they were smelling smoke. we have heard from multiple fire crews throughout contra. costa alameda and what not that they are all clear that there isn't any fires that are burning in those areas. it's simply just smoke that's been blowing through getting carried over from here in american canyon. people and allay also saying that they were smelling the smoke because it's been burning just about 5 miles from the border between the late how an american canyon as we've just learned a short while ago, just before the break that the evacuation east of broadway highway 29 have been lifted. so people are able to go back into those but american canyon road will remain closed at least for the foreseeable future. it's also dark out here right now. so crews have some progress. 25 1% containment on this. but eric tack options have been limited because of how dark it is out here. for people that
8:33 pm
are that are in these areas. this is the warnings and the things that we have keep in mind when we are in a red flag warning stages, of course, because we have the drought that's going on. so there's a lot of dry conditions. there's also that the windy conditions to make sure that you have go bags packed, make sure that your heeding the warnings from fire officials. they've been, of course, out here working diligently to make sure that they're prepared for situations like this. of course, when you hear a fire breaking out during a red flag warning. you're saying yourself, oh, my goodness. this is the worst thing that could happen at this point. but again, a lot of fire crews are out here mutual aid out here. we've been hearing that dozers cutting fire lines up there. on know preserve. we've also seen people out there working without chain saws. just that we can hear some right now just cutting down any of the dry brush and trees that are in that area. a lot of the fuels you know, that this fire can just simply to through. but just to sort of wrap it up here. again, we're at 25%. containment 100. 50
8:34 pm

8:35 pm
costa county sustained winds expected 15 to 30 miles an hour. gusting to 50 with some 6070 mile an hour gusts across the top of the diablo range. and of course you've seen us county. we're looking at some gusty wind conditions, humidity down to 10 to 20%. so very, very dry there also some gusts possible to 50 miles per hour. and in the north expecting those augusta develop overnight tonight really ramping up, especially in places like above map above say molina. the mountain ranges here expecting some very strong gusty winds that. also you can expect maybe gusts as high as 6070 miles per hour and checking some of those winds. it had gusts nearly 50 miles an hour. already. i think they're going to ramp up overnight tonight to see here on the computer model right now. you see all the winds around the bay area. more of the north north easterly wind developing outside and then as we head through the night tonight. all of a sudden you start to see the winds start to really pick up into the air in purple. there. but napa, you look at the winds maybe as high as 50 maybe 60 miles per hour that
8:36 pm
continuing as we head toward tomorrow. in fact, by tomorrow about the middle the morning begins to ramp up again. it's not until tomorrow afternoon that looks like things will begin to ease and subside more of a westerly wind coming in. that means the fire danger should begin to diminish by them. guys, back to you. >> thank you, lawrence. right now at kron 4 dot com. you can find more information on how to be prepared for fire season just scan a qr code on your screen with your mobile device. you will be taken to the special section on our website. it includes an evacuation checklist and what to do after a wildfire. >> turning to other news tonight. the covid-19 pandemic continuing to wreak havoc for consumers worldwide. cargo ships cannot dock at ports and it's now causing disruptions in the supply chain is sure is the delays at the port of los angeles have been getting worse for months with no end in sight and the holiday season approaching. >> four's amanda hari talk to the port of oakland officials about how they are trying to help out. amanda, what do they have to say.
