6:09 pm
it out. no further issues resulting from it. >> but with active flames and unlimited hot spots all around. town officials are waiting with baited breath. >> we're in red flag until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. what we're looking to avoid is a wind event this evening. >> reporter: this is what the glass fire looks like when it had so-called laid down. it continues to burn, but not voraciously. the problem is, but any wind on this, and we have a blow torch once again. up on mount st. helena, latent fires and hot spots became an issue as they flare up enough to require helicopters to slow the spread down, and crews working on the edges with bulldozers worked all day to build fire lines. all of this to try to keep the fires from crossing highway 29 on their way down to calistoga
6:10 pm
and many mountainside homes. >> we have fire on the west of us, east of us creeping along. cal fire and all of the fire resources doing the best they can. >> there is so much smoke here on the valley floor, it looks like it's bathed in a dense fog, but it's a deceptive fog that hides a stark reality. this fire is nowhere near done with its destruction. reporting live, tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. >> all right, tom, thank you so much for that live report. still ahead, new details about the property where the grass fire started, including the electric fence around it that was broken in one area. how investigators will determine what happened. >> you determine what is the cause with all of the causes being eliminated, and/or, you find a very incriminates piece of evidence. another hot smoky day out

6:13 pm
because they're always on. another life-changing technology from abbott. so you don't wait for life. you live it. a closer look at the vision into the cause of the glass fire. so far cal fire isn't saying what may have caused it, and it could be months before they release details, but ktvu has learned cal fire is focused on a particular spot in the hills above st. helena. tonight we look at what we know about that property. >> reporter: determining the origin of a fire is a first step in figuring out how it
6:14 pm
started, and cal fire investigators are set up on the edge of a vineyard behind cake bread sellers north of st. helena. we know where they are looking, but it's unclear if they have figured out what sparked the destructive blaze. here is what we can report about this property. cake bread sellers brought the two parcels in 1999, growing some of cake breads most premium wines. the sprawling landscape is shown on their website. they were approved to build the location that cal fire is at in 2001. cal fire is focused an on an area around the vineyard's equipment and outbuildings. the plot is also surrounded by an electrician fence. part of the fence was broken. it's not clear if that happened before or after the fire started. in cake bread's video, they say they named the video after
6:15 pm
bears that would climb the fences and eat the grapes. a spokeswoman for the company said they are cooperating and providing information to cal fire, adding that cal fire has informed us that it is looking at a number of properties along with ours, and has yet to conclude its investigation. this indicates to us that cal fire has not identified a particular origin or cause. determining the origin and cause of a wildfire is a complex process. >> oftentimes it's very complicated because of the wind patterns, and the burn pattern resulting in different burn patterns on vegetation. >> reporter: the former chief state fire marshal and head of the state arson affect force in california has been investigating wildfires for 50 years. he is involved with the glass fire. he said once investigators find the origin of a fire, they begin the tedious job of eliminating all of the possible causes except for one. >> we determine what is the cause with all other causes being eliminated, and/or you
6:16 pm
find a very incriminating piece of evidence. >> reporter: cal fire may already be rule something causes out. the vin jarred is not near any of pg&e's power lines then nearest transmission line is three quarters of a mile away. weaker distribution lines run about half a mile away. the vin jarred is also not near any roads where a spach from a passing vehicle or careless discarded cigarette butt might cause the fire. the fire broke out before 3:50 a.m. sunday. >> 3:00 in the morning, a fire start is often quite different than a fire start at 3:00 in the afternoon. >> reporter: the company said they were not harvesting operation when the fire started, and no lightning was reported in the area by the national weather service at the time the fire started, but that doesn't rule out an illegal campfire or arsonists. for the thousands of people impacted by the catastrophe,
6:17 pm
learning how the fire began is an important step in moving on. >> another day of hazy, smoky skies and poor air quality across the bay area. this video was taken earlier today in the east bay. there is no a "spare the air" alert in effect that runs through tuesday. for more on the conditions, we'll go to our meteorologist, mark . >> unfortunately the smoke is just settling in, and it's been a reality for us over the past few days, and that will likely continue into the weekend. showing you napa, in fact, if you can see the glass fire, the burn area right now, and also that smoke being pushed in from the north and from the west. so that's really impacting the napa area throughout the day, as you can see by 12:00 this afternoon, hazardous air quality of 306, and then coming
6:18 pm
down a little bit to very unhealthy by 3:00 this afternoon. now, this is kind of a welcome change. we're looking out toward the golden gate bridge and the fog is making its way back into the bay. so we'll take that. put still have the smoke and haze above that fog layer. napa is still very unhealthy. the orange means unhealthy for sensitive groups, up in santa rosa. unhealthy for san francisco, oakland, livermore, fremont, with moderate levels in the santa rosa mountains. the red flag fire warning continues until 6:00 a.m. saturday for all of these areas, santa rosa mountains east bay hills and up in the north bay. the temperatures right now, it's still warm to hot. the wind expected to pick up this evening with winds around 7 to 9 miles an hour. here is the forecast model as we put this into tonight, picks up a little bit tonight, and could actually increase by saturday afternoon into the evening hours, but the red flag
6:19 pm
fire warn look over. in terms of temperatures tomorrow around the fire zone, should be cooler than today, mainly in the 90s. but it is still a hot forecast. there's that air quality forecast for tomorrow, as well. this remaining in place right on through tuesday, the "spare the air" alert. a gradual cooldown is maybe some rain chances as we look way ahead. we'll have more on your forecast coming up in a little bit. a vehicle went off led to at grizzly peak. crews with the oakland fire department and regional parks fire and rescue helped pull the vandalize $sedan off the side of a steep hill. it appears the vehicle was unoccupied when it went off the road. over the next several days, police and fire crews will be patrolling the area, making sure nothing happens that could spark a fire in the dry brush. >> around 1:00 this morning wash
