we are getting new information about progress crews have made overnight on the clayton fire. >> good morning. check out these live pictures. just devastating. this is a lower lake. you can see some of the damage. you can see the cars here, how hot this fire burned and how quickly it got away. firefighters still fighting the fire at this hour.
>> it is good to see you. good morning. one half hour ago there was good news about the battle against the clayton fire. cal fire said it has gone from 5% contained it to 20% contained. it has not grown, which shows the firefighters are making progress. >> we want to show you a photo of the man police say is responsible for that fire. damin pashilk faces numerous charges. he is a construction worker born in san francisco, he is behind bars this morning in the lake county jail. residence have been telling us they did believe the fire was intentionally set. >> alex is right here in lake county. show us some of the damage.
>> reporter: good morning. i think there is sort of a sense of disbelief that someone would intentionally set a fire. we are in the hurt -- we are in the heart of lower lake. as i step out of the way you can see the burned cars. this is part of an auto repair shop. also in the midst of all of this there are some homes behind the businesses. now this morning we are getting word and there is a sense of relief that the police have arrested that man who they say is suspected of setting this destructive fire. [cheering] you can here the irruption from the crowd last night during a meeting. after the sheriff and cal fire
chief told everyone in attendance that they have a man in custody in connection with the clayton fire. damin pashilk was arrested by police and accused of starting a fire that broke out on saturday afternoon. it really exploded later in the day on sunday, driven by strong wind. they say damin pashilk is from california and police believe he is accused of setting a number of other fires in the lake county area. so far the clayton fire has destroyed at least 175 homes. a number of businesses also leveled by the fire. for people in this community many of them are trying to recover from the valley fire that swept through middletown just a year ago. for a lot of people it is hard to understand why someone would set the fire. >> i think everyone in lake county knew someone that lost a home.
this is going to be the same thing. lower lake is a small community. >> reporter: all of those folks who ran from their homes, packed up what they could and got out as this fire exploded in size. all of them staying at a number of shelters set up nearby. there is no word yet from officials on when all of those evacuees may be allowed to return. the latest word is it is too dangerous. there is no power or water. we did get good news as we were talking about here, i spoke with a member of cal fire and they feel like they made some progress overnight with this fire. but, it still stands at 4000 acres and they are being cautious about the fire. >> our of thoughts are with all of those firefighters. thank you.
it is important to remember many schools have canceled classes because of the fire. the school district has canceled school for the rest of the week. woodland community college is also closed. >> the weather is a big part of all of that is happening steve paulson is all over this. >> it is hot, that is for sure. it was 101 at lower lake yesterday. it will be close to that today. the breeze is the key. it does look like it was to turn northeast later so that would not be good. no breeze is good at all but it does look a little easterly which means that the humidity will be low. we have got a lot of fog and drizzle around the bay. others are already in the sun.
some locations they will warm up. the delta breeze was much stronger yesterday. low 50s in the north bay. the sierra might actually see some thunderstorms development popping up in the next couple of days. if you are up there be advised. theremay be some hints of instability. 60s, 70s, 80s and some 90s. you have been busy since this morning. >> that is right, it has been slow out there. we are going to start off with a very slow bridge. those lights are on. not a lot of good traffic but the only good news there are no lane blockages coming into san francisco. we are also looking at the commute where traffic is getting slow early. northbound 880 is very slow.
this morning's drive on 580 does not look bad. if you are still in the livermore it is a nice looking dry but 680 is hundred 80 is beginning to slow down. let's go back to the desk. police investigating another crime at the westfield shopping mall. the man told police he was beaten and robbed of school supplies in a bathroom. police say three men jumped him. he suffered minor injuries. this happened two days after the body of a man was found at the mall in an emergency exit stairwell. no arrests have been made. milwaukee was calm last night after two days of protests. tensions have been high since saturday when a police officer shot a man who police say he
was running with a stolen gun. protesters the story to several businesses and attacked police officers. >> the faith community has responded to the mayor and my department and they did an excellent job of singing to it that the vigil, that attracted hundreds of people, remained peaceful. >> there was one confrontation between a group of people and police last night that ended with a six arrests. a bill being debated about a video recorded by police body cameras. the senate approved the measure that would prevent the release of any video showing the death of a police officer killed in the line of duty. the immediate family could release it if they wanted to but the bill is intended to protect them from having to relieve the nightmare of their loved one death.
oakland police looking for a motive in a motive in a shooting death of two people dead. the shooting happened during a birthday party early sunday morning. one man we talked with said violence in the area has been on the decline and people should not give up on oakland. >> what we represent -- what we represent down here is real oakland. >> it is an incredible place to be. it is very vibrant. yet, i guess gathering a lot of people together they can be in element that is not so savory. >> the two men who died are craig fletcher and terrence mccrary. that shooting happened around the corner from where a 16-year old was shot and killed. there is as -- there is a

let's get you moving. hopefully traffic is good for you. >> we have a couple of new crashes that we can talk about. the first one in pleasant hill, 680. there is a crash that is blocking lanes and the traffic is backing up all the way down to the area -- i would say up to 242. it is affecting the commute on the 680 also. what you need to do if gives it -- what you need to do is give yourself plenty of extra time. if you can get on the freeway after the boulevard you can give yourself a bit of a cushion. also southbound 101 is heavy. i want to mention -- i want to mention a crash on 880 at
stevenson. the backup is going to start building there. suddenly we have been affected by these crashes that are taking lanes away. it hadn't been that bad of a commute. now, unfortunately i think it is going to be. let's take a look at what we have. this is a look at the toll plaza. look at that little green pickup truck down there. he decided to get into the wrong lane and now they are backing up traffic in that lane because he just has to try to sneak in. of course those drivers are trying not to let him. that is just terrible. that is bad driving. let's go out to 280. 280. it is moving along okay. let's bring stephen. don't you hate when that happens? >> we see it all of the time. it looks like it is going
to be another hot day. there are a lot of low clouds and fog. livermore is also cloudy. again, there is some local drizzle. in middletown it is already 60. it went to 101 yesterday. 101 yesterday. i don't see much change today. clearlake will be in the low one hundreds. the key is that breeze. it does not look like it is going to let up. we get clouds and fog for some. inland temperatures are right where they should be.
delta breeze was the stronger yesterday. it looks like it is starting to decrease a little bit. we will keep an eye on it. 50s for some, low 60s for a few. north bay temperatures have been very cool. 51 in nevada. some fog around petaluma up to santa rosa. it has been lingering into the late morning for the last couple of days. 43 in truckee. 56 in sacramento. 40s and 50s around lake tahoe. possibility of some clouds building and maybe an isolated shower for the next couple of days.
it does not have a lot to work with but it will provide a lift in the mountains. that is why we are mentoring storms. 60s around the bay. 90s to seven mid-90s or low one hundreds if you are far enough away. brentwood you are 68. santa clara valley is in that bad. they are actually a bit cool. a little warmer inland in wednesday. it does look from -- it does look like cool weather for those away from the coast. >> i am always amazed by that temperature swing. no matter how long i live here. it is amazing. although i will say it always gets hot again when the kids go back to school. >> that is true, usually that happens. a restaurant shut down in hawaii after 160 people get sick.
this happened in the richmond district on friday afternoon. -- the bank robber dubbed the "transfer" has been arrested in san francisco. this happened in the richmond district on friday afternoon. a san francisco business at offices people would need medical help may be forced to close down. we are talking about the psychological services center. it has been in business since 1980 and offer psychotherapy for a low fee. now the property owners want to tear down the building and build nine new housing units. the clinic has set up a gofundme page hoping to raise money to pay the first and last month to rent. the clinic operators say they could be forced to move out with

the firefight continues. we will check in with alex who is up there. it breaks your heart when you talk about all the people that have been hurt by this fire. >> we are going to have a live interview with cal fire in just a few minutes. we also want to hear from steve paulson, he is worried about the weather. >> i did not see any breeze but that was the same thing yesterday and it still got to 100. in the higher elevations we will have an update on that too and get the report. it looks like another day of 100 . the humidity drops really fast and there are signs of a breeze and that is not good. that means humidity will be low. it is extremely foggy for some
at the coast. there is still a hint of a delta breeze but it is not that strong. low -- we -- concord -- concord you are at 51. 56 in danville. 53 in lafayette. round of this the sierra it looks could have some instability in the next couple of days. fog at the coast. 60s, 70s and some 80s in san jose. concord, livermore and to the east you are a little above the 80s. how are the roads looking?
>> we have a slow traffic and i will focus on some of the trouble spots. as you approach stevenson they are clearing an accident there and traffic will be slow as you drive towards the fremont area. it hadn't been that bad before the crash but then the accident did kind of ruin things. 680 we had an earlier accident they are, that traffic is recovering. but traffic is going to be slow as you drive down past this area. let's take a look at some live pictures. you can see traffic on the bridge is a moderate. most of the heavy traffic will be in hayward. westbound 84 we had a little bit of a problem there. this is a look at the bay bridge. that is backed up. it has been pretty busy out there.
let's go back to the desk. still following the big fire in lake county. we will show you the man accused of starting the fire. this is damin pashilk, he is in court tomorrow. he is jailed on more than $5 million bond. containment did increase overnight, that is good news. >> this fire has already destroyed at least 175 buildings. 1500 are in danger. we have been giving you updates on the damage. we have been getting it from cal fire. daniel is back with us live from san francisco. thank you for coming back. >> good morning. >> give us the latest. where do we stand right now? >> we are still estimated at 20% of the fire contained. firefighters have been working all night long to build
additional containment lines. right now we are in the middle of a shift change. we will bring in some fresh crews to continue that line building around the fire. yesterday we did not see the fire activity in the town of a lower like -- in the town of lower lake like we did on sunday. we are trying to keep the fire out of lower lake and that will continue to be the priority. >> in terms of strategy is there a change in strategy this morning? >> the biggest factor that
allowed the fire to burn into lower lake was the wind. as was mentioned earlier right now there is not a lot of wind. overnight that is when we were able to take advantage of building that containment line around the fire. when the wind it does pick back up -- it is likely this afternoon we will see some wind and we will be able to hold the fire within the perimeter. we will continue to focus on that effort today. again we hope that mother nature will cooperate. but low humidity continues to challenge us. >> there are some emotional parts of this as well. you don't want it to get into homes. when it went to lower lake i am i am sure that was devastating for the firefighters. now you have this arrest announced and at least now we know who started it. does that give firefighters on the lines some emotional push to say, this was not great, but we are going to get ahead of this
and we are going to win. >> absolutely, we worked very hard last year with the valley fire to keep it away from lower lake. to see the wind pushed the fire in there and do so much damage was difficult for us. we have seen lake county devastated over the past year and to see it again was very difficult. but in the evening to be able to make that arrest is good news. but we have to stay focused. there is still in a a lot of work ahead of us. we don't want the potential for the win wind to push the fire back towards the community. >> one last question as you mentioned the valley fire, are you having similar personal experiences with the firefighters on the line? >> many of them do live in the
lower lake area. so this is home for many of them. i have not heard of any of them having their homes destroyed. but, this is personal for us. we live in that area. we protect that area every day. so to see so much destruction has been very difficult but it gives us energy to continue on. >> daniel, thank you. we are sending good thoughts your way. there are three leave -- there are three relief center set up for evacuees. a lot of people only had their shirts on their back when the fire hit. >> reporter: do you know what to are going to do? >> i do not have a clue.
>> the evacuation centers are at a church and a high school. this morning pg&e is using a helicopter to fly in the new utility poles. there are several fundraisers on the way to help the victims of the fire. lucky supermarket says its stores collecting cash donations to make it easier to donate to the families. >> fire officials reminding homeowners to have space around their property. they say clear brush and other flammables around your home. clean your gutters and do what you can now. don't assume firefighters will be able to protect your home. they are also advising to evacuate sooner than later if there is a fire.
also, make sure you have at least two ways out. have a plan drawn up in advanced. police in the south bay looking for the person responsible for a deadly shooting last night. janine de la vega in san jose. i know you talked to investigators who say the homicide rate is up for the year. >> reporter: this shooting makes the homicide rate up to 31 homicides this year. that is one more than last year's total. so police aren't sure why there is an increase but right now they are focusing on catching the shooter. police tell us that two men were brought to the hospital last night, one died of his injuries, the other is expected to survive. police were called to the hospital and they determined the shooting
happened on n. white rd. they had the scene roped off for hours. it is unknown what led up to the shooting or what the motive is. the area is known for some gang activity. no suspect description has been released so we have limited information. it has been reported that the victim who died was a teenage boy but when we called the coroner they could not confirm that. back to you. health officials in hawaii have shut down several restaurants considered a possible source of hepatitis. they say the disease is likely linked to imported frozen scallops. there are a total of 11 of the restaurants and so far 168 cases of hepatitis have been confirmed.
we are getting new information on the shootings that happened at a shopping center earlier this month. coming up how a couple -- coming up how a pair of shoes is linked to the case. we are looking at the east bay commute which has been a little rough. highway 24 a little behind schedule on the way to oakland. for some it is foggy and depressing for others. a big difference in temperatures. we will talk about that coming up. hey mom, i could use some basil. oh, sure thing, sweetie.
morning about the kidnapping of a group of men in mexico. there are no reports the son of el chapo may be among the men who were kidnapped. police say the kidnappers and the victims are believed to be members of gangs. girl the reports indicate anywhere from 10-12 men have been kidnapped. will be san francisco's next police chief? the police commission held its first community meeting to ask the public what they want to see in the next to chief. cristina rendon is live in san francisco with details. >> reporter: right now we are learning that acting police chief toney chaplain has not applied for the position but his name did come up at the
meeting last night. only 16 people have submitted application so far. we do know that before finalists are chosen the commissioner is holding a public meeting. they want to get a sense of how the community feels. the first meeting was held last night. only 40 people attended. but those that were there roads down exactly what they want to see in the next police chief. they also share their ideas. talking with people this morning they shared a lot of the same qualities i want to see in the next chief. >> he needs to be for the people. he needs to communicate with all of the people. he needs to make the community safe. >> reporter: this request for community impact comes as police policies have been changing.
toney chaplain has released -- toney chaplain has not formally applied for the permanent job. the deadline to apply is at the end of the month. this meeting last night was just one of several. there will be four more in the coming weeks. the public can attend to some of these meetings to get their voices heard. activist say they want a nationwide 90 day moratorium on police use of force. about two dozen protesters gathered outside of the mission police station. their demands come after those heated riots in milwaukee, also several other controversial police shootings in the bay area and around the country.
looking for a new police chief as you know oakland looking too. cities all of the country have questioned their leadership in oakland. this morning our question of the day is, what qualities would you want in a police chief? let us do what you think. post a comment on our ktvu facebook page. let's go back outside and check on the roads. >> good morning. we are seeing crowded conditions on the roads. westbound 24 is slow because of some early issues. a lot of people behind the schedule on 680. you will see slow traffic. also at the toll plaza a lot of people trying to get into san francisco. it is backed up for a 20 minute delay. we have a lot of slow traffic in marin county. southbound 101 is slow. there
is also a backup trying to get into the area from richmond at the richmond bridge toll plaza. southbound 880 is a mess because of an earlier accident. let's get to the weather. >> plenty of fog. some of it very thick. look at that, are you directing? thank you. i have a request for a solid you think you can sneak that in? [laughing] slightly warmer tomorrow but a cooling trend for those away from the coast friday into sunday. santa clara valley has not been
that hot. they dropped right back into the 80s yesterday. we are at 55 in sonoma. ma. a couple of things here, the lows are cool this summer compared to last the summer but i think five years of doubt has taken a toll on a lot of these trees. we do get plenty of fog and clouds. for some it has been extremely depressing. i get that. but september is getting close and usually the close will start to clear out because we got a breeze coming in. not much of a delta breeze today. 50s, some low 60s for the coast.
belmont you are 59. not much of a breeze. across the strait 43 street 43 in truckee. 56 in sacramento. the change in the forecast is the development of some afternoon clouds and storms. it looks marginal but it is in the forecast. it has been a quiet summer for thunderstorm activity but there are some signs that we may get some today or tomorrow. it is going to take a turn and head to southern california
which will give us a little bit of a breeze and they may draw back some clouds later in the week. i don't think it will be much but it is something to mention. 50s at the coast. 70s inland. 60s in the east bay. 70 in fremont. 88 in morgan hill. santa cruz you are 68. redwood city you are 78. a little warmer inland wednesday. a cooler pattern as we head to the weekend. san francisco police busy trying to crack down on bike thieves. when we come back, using social media to find those bicycle chop shops. here is a look at our instagram picture of the day.
this end of the strips first high rise and one of the most famous casinos in las vegas. it was featured in quite a few movies. police using social media to go after bike thieves. now they are using a twitter account to help find stolen bicycles. police are depending on you to let them know where the bike chop shops are. >> it is a very lucrative business to take apart those bicycles to sell the parts. >> yesterday police reacted after getting a tip about a bicycle chop shop and it led them to one man who had more than 25 bicycles. he was cited for illegal lodging, possession of burglary tools and for having a bike with its serial number taken off.

it is my pleasure to announce the arrest of damin pashilk, age 40, of clearlake. >> applause as an arrest is made in the clayton fire. but the work is far from over. hundreds of homes are still threatened. good morning. welcome back. >> we continue to watch the clayton fire still burning in lake county. firefighters are making progress . this morning officials announced containment jumped from 5% to 20%.
the a great of the fire is still at 4000. we want to give you a look at the man police believe is responsible for starting the fire. he is 40-year old damin pashilk. he faces numerous charges including arson and aggravated arson. he isa construction worker born in san francisco. >> since the fire began a number of residents have been telling us that they believe the fire was indeed arson. >> now residents are trying to make sense that someone in their own community could have started this fire deliberately. our photographer and alex savidge are driving around getting a look at a look at all of the damage. >> reporter: good morning. we are going to drive through one of the neighborhood hit hard by the clayton fire. we are just off of main street. i want to show you this shot.
you can see the devastation in the neighborhood. this street is winchester street and as we turn the corner you can tell it is just entire blocks that were leveled by the fire. home after home after home destroyed as the fire swept through the area. we have talked about the fact that this was driven by strong wind on sunday. there was not a lot firefighters could do to save these homes. there are 175 homes 175 homes and businesses destroyed by this fire. that tally could possibly go up as crews are just beginning -- are still working on the assessment process to figure out exactly how many homes were lost. the disturbing part, the people
who live in the community is finding out that someone intentionally set the fire, causing so much destruction. >> people lost things that can't be replaced. why? what was so bad? what was so wrong that he had to do this? >> reporter: again, this is still in active fire zone. we see crews from time to time in this area. you can still see some hot spots. again, this is a live look at winchester street right off of main street in lower lake. you can see it is just a devastating. the good news is that cal fire says they are making progress on this fire. they are still being very cautious as they move throughout the day because it is possible the wind could pick up later on in the day.
>> there is no one around that area, still restricted for folks? >> reporter: absolutely, several thousand people -- all those folks forced to leave their homes on sunday. they have stalled -- they have still not been allowed back into this area. there are downed power lines and trees throughout the neighborhood. until some of the services can be restored and there are no hazards they will not let people back home. we hope to get an update soon. >> i just can't think how similar it is to the valley fire . i know yesterday you covered valley for -- i know i know yesterday you said you covered valley fire. is that how it feels to you? >> reporter: absolutely,
talking with firefighters this morning who worked on those fires and i mentioned that. here is sort of a similar way these fires swept into these small towns. in the case of the valley fire the flames swept right into the middle of the time. we have a similar scene, on a smaller scale, but it certainly is similar the way the fire behaved and there was not a lot they could do to stop it from destroying a good a good portion of the town. >> we know how heartbreaking it will be for them to return. thank you so much. many schools in the lower lake area have canceled classes because of the fire. school has been canceled for the rest of the week. the woodland community college campus has also closed.
let's get to steve paulson for a look at the forecast. a little relief may be? >> i don't think so. it is still going to be hot there. there are signs of a breeze in the afternoon so it is just not a good thing. they need a pattern change to get cooler weather up there and i don't see that happening. the fog has been lifting a little bit. some inland locations will be in the upper 80s and 90s. it is going to be another hot day. the humidity goes up in the morning but the breeze has really died down. the low is moving in which might trigger some thunderstorm activity over the sierra. water temperature is 55.
they have not really budged much since early july. still a delta breeze but it is less than it was yesterday. not much of a change north and south. santa cruz 55. 52 in gilroy. around the sierra maybe some thunderstorm activity. 60, 70s 80s and 90s, some your average and some below. i did notice that fog went right down and it looks like it is lifting a little bit. >> that is right, the visibility has become better. thank you very much. let's start with the east bay commute where it is overcast
but the fog is not playing a major role in the commute. when you get to the bay bridge it has improved just a little bit but it is not good by any means as you head to the area. northbound 280 we just got word of a new crash near saratoga avenue so suddenly 280 will start to slow down. 101 is already very slow. 85 is also showing a lot of slow traffic in the area as well. let's go back to the desk. days after a man was found dead police are now investigating another crime at the westfield mall. a man told police he was beaten and robbed of school supplies. police say three men assaulted him. he suffered minor injuries. the incident happens two days
