4:01 pm
half hour ago. take a look. this is where the fire has jumped at parts. jumped highway 20. this is what they did not want to happen. they were trying to hold the fire at highway 20 but it jumped across the highway in spot fires and in some cases running up a ridge that they were about to send an air attack after. this is the time of day when things change. we were really in the nick of it -- thick of it along highway 20, the northern edge of the fire. they have been doing water drops with the helicopters helicopters and the air tankers. going after the fire with everything they have. i keep hearing this is unprecedented. as of this morning it was 60,000 acres and growing. we watched it approaching towards us along highway 20.
4:02 pm
5,000 people have been evacuated. we have been watching today in the last 10 minutes emergency vehicles rush to try contain the flames. we talked to one of the public information officers, here is what he had to say. >> yeah. we have been talking about, you know, every day, about this time, what time is it? yeah, 3:00 p.m., clock work. this is the time it makes runs. the fire jumped the road up there. jumped highway 20 heading up the north side of highway 20. putting the helicopters on it right now and an order for the fixed wing droppers, aircraft, it will come in and try to make a stop on the ridge top. >> reporter: [ inaudible
4:03 pm
question ] >> those are the things they are thinking about right now. you can see the smoke there. the fire is enormous. larger than the size of oakland. you can see the black smoke. that has a lot of oils in it and it sends up the thick, dark smoke. the lighter fuels are burning the white smoke you see there. again, more than 5,000 people evacuated from the fire. we talked to a couple who was at the evacuation area, the red cross evacuation area in middle town, they live on the other side, spring valley. an area that was evacuated because if the winds shifted and if the fire jumped highway 20 they were concerned about the area. at some point it jumped. they happen sending in an air
4:04 pm
attack where it jumped over highway 20 and again that was probably now less than an hour ago that that happened. >> i know the fire jumped highway 20 and firefighters said they will pound it with an aerial attack. what about back burning activity, now that 20 has been jumped by the fire? >> reporter: they had been doing that before it jumped the fire. and it did that while we were watching things happen. you can see there is a water drop happening now in the background. that is not the area i am talking about. the area we are talking about is off to my right. probably 15 minutes down the road, down highway 24. i am at 53 and 20. they are trying to prevent that from happening. while we were talking to the officer he said that doesn't look good and confirmed yes, in fact it jumped highway 20 in
4:05 pm
more than a spot fire fashion. it had been throughing that throughout the day. -- doing that throughout the day. they were getting ready to send in air tankers. >> describe how far are you away from the fire lines, i am thinking the conditions must be hard, was is it like standing where you are? >> reporter: clearly i don't need here, blue shield of california. 10 minutes that way it -- blue skies here. 10 minutes that way it was blowing smoke because the winds were so shifty and the fire jumped over the highway. that just sends up a ton of smoke. and you can think is safe for one minute and just like that conditions change because these
4:06 pm
fires create their own wind too. what the weather is like where i am at is not what the weather is like inside the fire. >> residents not allowed back in? >> reporter: no. i don't see residents being allowed back in anytime soon. we were just told -- we were in that area, not not letting the media in. there were emergency vehicles that keep speeding by here. this is a very fluid situation. >> frustration from some residents. safety is always first. noelle walker covering the rocky fire, thank you. >> sky fox 2 over head. this massive wildfire. the largest burning in the state. another live picture of it. noelle walker reporting the latest development, the fire
4:07 pm
jumped highway 20 there. 12% contained. 60,000 acres burned. joining us now is cal fire spoke spokesman via skype. thank you for taking the time. your reaction to the report with the highway -- the fire jumping over highway 20. have you heard anything about was that fire that jumped back fire that was set? >> reporter: fire jumped over highway 20. that was what we were hoping to avoid. we have bun a lot -- done a lot of back fire operations. around the highway to prevent this. at this point we aggressively attacked the spot fire off highway 20, on the other side as well. crews are trying to get a hold of this. our goal was to keep it back from highway 20. the winds the fire is creating, that allowed the fire to burn so aggressively and quickly
4:08 pm
today and over the last several days. >> 60,000 acres now burned, 12% contained, you estimate a containment date by august 10. is that realistic? today is the 3rd. >> reporter: we have 3,000 firefighters right now aggressively battling the fire. and we are hoping that we will be able to turn the corner on this. last night the temperatures and the weather cooperated with us. we saw 10 degrees cooler temperatures. humidity was higher and that allowed us the opportunity to build good containment line. that is where the progress jumped from 5 to 10%. the fire has jumped. we are still optimistwalk the crews and the aircraft -- optimistic with the crews and the aircraft we will meet that. . >> back to the weekend, you are
4:09 pm
battling 20 wildfires across the state. because of that does that play a role in the fact you don't have as many crews over the weekend and that may have played a role into the jumping of the fire? >> the biggest factor are the tinder dry conditions from the drought. we have been talking about this all summer long. with last week's triple digits and low humidity that allowed the fire to take off. we have 3,000 firefighters who are battling the fire. we have 20 other fires. we have a lot of extra resources. before this fire took off we activated the national guard at the same time, getting extra helicopters, resources and brought resources in from out of the state to allow us to attack the other fires. the rocky fire still threatens thousands of homes. dry conditions that are working against us.
4:10 pm
>> when you speak of 20 active fires, 9,000 firefighters battling them, how important was it for the resources the governor declared a state of emergency? >> reporter: that was critical. last year the governor declared a drought state of emergency and that increased the number of resources. that has given us the increase in personnel. with the state of emergency last week that allows us to bring in resources from other states. we brought in two more air tankers out of colorado. all the resources helping us. again, we are hoping that the weather will begin to continue to cooperate with us and the fire will slow down. our job, protect life and property. making sure the homes are safe and get around the fire, slow
4:11 pm
it down. doesn't matter how many resources we need we will use them to get them -- the fire under control. >> could you handle another large fire in northern california if one were to spark? >> reporter: we continued to mobilize more resources in northern california. while we are busy with the rocky fire and the other 19 fires we have to have resources for other fires. just last week we responded to 300 new fires. aggressive initial attack is the key. we have other firefighters. other resources. that is the out of state resources. we are staffing. we are -- we have the response we need to keep on going. we are only in august. the likelihood of seeing the fire season is very large. >> thank you. all right. contra costa county and the crew back -- colin kaepernick
4:12 pm
and the crew back on the field as the 49ers get ready for the football season. ktvu fox 2 news scott reiss is live at levi stadium there. how are you? >> reporter: i am doing well. thank you. the 49ers, well, we will find out in 5 weeks. a work in progress after last year's 8-8 season. new coach, new staff, new players and a returning quarterback who has a lot to prove. colin kaepernick under a lot of fire last season. not only did he not take the next big step forward his numbers went the other way but he remains one of the most physically gifted players in the nfl and he is young. he said right now it is about getting comfortable with the guys around him. >> i thought there was a growth from year one to year three. you want to see that same
4:13 pm
growth. we are talking about reading the body language of the new receivers. communication is part of camp. communication. a lot of it is just reading the body language and understanding the chemistry that is hard to develop. >> i got a chance to work out with him in arizona. he is looking good. he has been looking good. couple things he had to work on. he is a great quarterback. and a great athlete. he works hard. >> reporter: if you follow this team you probably know he spent time this off season with kurt warner trying to hone his mechanics. he is very invested. he was here yesterday walking and tutoring colin kaepernick. of course, they don't open the regular season till had second week in september. second weekend in september. all indications are so far so
4:14 pm
good and the tutelage has done nice things for colin kaepernick. >> all that talk, last year about the turf and the trouble, how is it looking so far in season two? >> reporter: right. the last thing the team needed was bad field turf. part brought on by the decision to move practice to the main stadium field. it is great for fans. there are a bunch of them inside right now. it is not so great for the turf. it doesn't look great. the players are saying all the right things. he said my footing is fine because i have great feet.

4:19 pm
develop a portfolio after you set up a budget and setting up a portfolio that will get you your goals. once you do that, get yourself to establish a bench mark to compare those vestments and the goal -- investments and the goal. if you need stock like returns, the s&p might be a good way. you want to know the investments and understand what you are buying. we see folks will buy a bond and they don't know what is tin and how it will react. you want to know what is in the investments. >> optimizing taxes. >> this is a big one. when you are placing the assets or securities within the accounts, you want to put the
4:20 pm
ones that have the biggest tack impact in the tax deferred. stocks more growth oriented with qualified dividends in the taxable side. when you are taking money out in your retirement phase, do it in an optimized manner. plan ahead and keep an eye on where your tax status is and how you will bump up against the different tax risks. that could lead you to withdrawal money from roths instead of another area. >> that is what you want to have in the end when you retire? the money you need available? >> could be one goal or numerous goals. a lot of times folks use a retirement date and figure out how much money they need retire. >> minimizing your cost. >> this is a big one. many times folks don't realize when they hire an adviser that
4:21 pm
uses outside managers they are paying the adviser and the manager so there is a duplication in fees. we advise against that. we don't think you should pay sales charges. >> what if i heard this and i have a 401&a job but i don't know what you just said. who can help? >> for is plenty of great -- there is plenty of greatfirms. we would be happy -- great firms. we would be happy to talk to people, there are plenty of tools that could analyze things. and give you the answers you need. >> thank you for trying to give us lessons there. >> thank you. sky fox 2 still over head.

4:23 pm

earthquake. earthquake. >> that is the early warning system for west coast earthquakes that is being developed in the bay area in partnership with the usgs. millions of dollars in federal funding has been awarded to improve the system. today we are taking 4 minutes to talk about the system and what it is capable of doing. >> let's see bring in now elizabeth with the usgs. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. >> how many seconds are we talking about here and how important is the warning, what can we do in the -- we do in the few seconds? >> it is dependent on how far away the earthquake is from where you are located. let me give you background on
4:33 pm
how it works. we detect the p waves, the first waves emitted by an earthquake and use that to -- quake and use that to estimate where it is, how big it is and then we send warnings out. and so really the amount of warning time you have is dependent on how far away you are from the earthquake. but what you can do with a couple seconds of warning is get under neath your desk, but there are a lot of very important things we can do in an -- [ talking at the same time ] >> i am sorry. talked about the first wave. is the $4 million, that grant money going to size monitors that detect the first waves that we don't feel? >> right. so the money is going partly to
4:34 pm
-- to purchasing new seismic stations to fill in the gaps of the existing network and to improving the algorithms and automatically determine how big an earthquake is. >> $4 million is a big amount of money. is it your point you need tens of millions of dollars to achieve the goal up and down the west coast of the united states? >> we have estimate that it will take $40 million to build out the networks so that is an additional $16 million per year to operate and maintain that system. the funding although it is helpful for moving forward, it is still a fraction of what we need to get the system up and off the ground. >> real life examples. the earthquake in napa, there
4:35 pm
was a 9 second warning for the residents in san francisco and may 3, 3 seconds warning after the los angeles earthquake started. >> for an earthquake in los angeles, there was a 3.8 event. we were able to issue a warning before the -- [ indiscernible ] >> and so that meant that eve those people who are close to the epicenter could have received a warning. >> the hayward fault, we had that one last month, was there a detection from that specific earthquake and do you feel there should be more seismometers around the fault? >> yeah. we got a detection for that event on hayward. the description of seismic stations in the bay area is
4:36 pm
relatively good but becomes sparse as soon as you get outside of san francisco bay area. we need to beef up our networks. >> that goes from fremont to oakland. do you feel that is the next big one to go? >> reporter: certainly the forecast for the most likely fault includes the hayward fault as being one of the highest probability that we have in california. >> all right. thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. we have a special section dedicated to earthquake news and information. look for it under the news tap on the home page. a treatment that could help many women with ovarian cancer impot butt fewer than half of

audio difficulties ] >> you go out, you visit six different facilities, large facilities across the country, and you found what, 41% of women decided to get this treatment but the other 59% say no? >> well, that is -- [ audio difficulties ] >> the collaborators of mine. we look back at 800 women who would have been eligible. what we don't have is the reasons they didn't get that. we suspect some women made that decision and we think those decisions were influenced by the physicians that were treating them. we want to make sure patients are aware of the options available to them. >> was are your thoughts about why physicians may not
4:43 pm
recommend the treatment? >> there definitely is more side effects associated. that is clear. half the women will not be able to complete all six cycles of the double chemotherapy. you can modify the treatment. with half the women not completing all six psychothals benefits of survival persists. >> the survival rate with the treatment, jumped up to 81%? >> really when we are looking at three year that was just one moment in time. when you look at the people surviving we didn't even reach the 50% in women who received the chemotherapy. that benefit is more pronounced than the 10% benefit of three
4:44 pm
years. you are looking at people living years longer. >> is it possible patients are not getting it because of the cost? does money play a role in this? >> there does seem to be more -- [ indiscernible ] >> but when we talk with patients and we educate them with regards to the extra visit or two they are open. we discussed with them the additional survival advantage. and when we look at this we used to give it only in the hospital but over the last 10 years we learned that we can give it in the office so patients can get it and go home. >> interesting results. thank you for your time. let's check back in on the rocky fire. live pictures. sky fox 2 flying above. burning in three counties in
