tom vacar shows us what's creating challenges for firefighters. the tiny helmet of canyon dam right next to the dam that forms like alma. nor is no more after the dixie fire consumed greenville the day before, has the 2010 census. the population was 31 down from 37 2000, the biggest concern now extinguish any and all members in the burned areas, so winds cannot send them flying. typically we go two or 300 ft in for doing mop up. i'm just tired. they're going 507 100 ft in some places as much as two miles to protect the unburned stuff from members on the inside, being blown outside and starting new fires while the fire is not being wind whipped right now, which makes it do crazy things fast. the towering smoke hampers aerial drops of water and red fire retardant that stable air makes it so it's difficult for us to see
6:01 pm
the fire. it's difficult for aircraft to do their jobs, but newly available infrared sensors can see right through the smoke and alert ground crews about unseen or unknown amber fed flare ups a spot fire occurred a significant distance away from the fire it through the 20 acres. they would not have known that fire was there at all if it hadn't been for infrared image. cal fire has no choice but to bring in many more resources. we're not going to put our firefighters in danger, so you know, think if there's an area where they're working, and all of a sudden conditions become too bad, we are going to pull them out and bring them to a place where they're going to be safe. the new resources are being added to the 5200 and 22 firefighters, 88 hand crews. 418 fire engines. 121 water tenders, 24 helicopters and 110 dozers already in the incredibly dangerous battle, a battle that could consume many more hamlets and towns before
6:02 pm
it's defeated. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. there is some positive news from the sierra foothills where cruise on the river fire say they are making some progress. the river fire has burned 2600 acres along the bear river near colfax that started wednesday, and containment is now up to 30% firefighters are working to douse hot spots. cal fire says at least 88 buildings have been destroyed. and one man learned today that his home in the small community of chicago park was destroyed. my house. that burnt is i spent a lot of work, making everything handmade feel the trees to make the floors a lot of just stuff that i want to put a lot of love and for my kids, and they got to spend a little bit of time in there. it's hard to sleep at night. when you have a lot of this going through your. thinking michael bassett was reunited with his sister today, and he
6:03 pm
learned that his farm animals, including goats and sheep, did survive the fire about 6000. people remain evacuated in nevada and plaster counties smoke traveling this way from fires has prompted the bay area air quality management district to extend an advisory through tomorrow. meteorologist mark tamayo is picking up our wild time wildfire team coverage with a look at the conditions that are now pushing the smoke into other areas. yeah hi there. jan. it's one little weather feature that's setting up a northerly flow says bringing in the smoke from the north and headed toward the bay area are earlier thinking. we were thinking like, okay, maybe the smoke could be up above the upper elevations. and that's what we're seeing about up above. 1000 ft. but some instances some of that smoke is actually making it down to the surface. and as result, we have poor air quality across parts of the bay area. as we take a look at this the air quality advisory. this was our one that creek camera this afternoon. we should be able to show you mount diablo. but yeah, if you can't see visibility is coming down quite a bit. so the air quality advisory for today and
6:04 pm
into tomorrow. so that widespread smokey area you can see all the activity with the dixie fire, but also some smart some fires up to our north, contributing to our smoke here in the bay area, particularly the mcfarland, the monument fire and also the river call plex up to our north. that is that the whole car. complex is the primary smoke producer here in the bay area as we take a look at some of the air quality sensors remember some of that smoke is just up above really not impacting the air quality sensors too much, but i will say it's not on this map but out toward concord, but you have unhealthy air quality and also out towards liver more up in the orange is to have an impact on some centers across portions of the bay area. here is a smoke forecast. if you can't see and just obviously, if that advisory extended into saturday, we are expecting that smoke to a stick around, especially for the first half of the day, but we are expecting improving conditions throughout the day on saturday, and a sure bet as we head into a sunday but once again the moderate levels expected to depend at that smoke falls
6:05 pm
closer to the surface. we could have those maybe some oranges and possibly some reds across parts of the bay area. what could could i will continue to keep an eye on this pattern and have another update. in a few minutes or not, or covid coverage. the union representing san francisco's sheriff's deputies say it expects to see many law enforcement officers quit if all city workers are forced to get a covid-19 vaccine. ktvu crime reporter henry least spoke to union rep. who says requiring of vaccine would be unfair. this picture of a woman hanging out of a cadillac while armed with an ak 74 was put on social media along with this statement, quote public safety of san francisco has turned into the wild west and will get worse when officers quit due to the vaccine mandate. that's what the san francisco deputy sheriff's union posted on facebook in response to plan that require all city workers be vaccinated. this mandate is so strict. um we have employees that are going to quit. ken lamba is president of the sheriff's union. he says some
6:06 pm
law enforcement officers are refusing to take the vaccine for medical, religious or other reasons, and that forcing them to do so is unfair. we would like it to be the same as the state, you know, the same as the surrounding counties required to vaccinate. or test, the union says about 18% of its 850 sworn deputies aren't vaccinated under the city's mandate. deputies who are assigned high risk spots like sf general hospital or the jails, including the one at the hall of justice would have to be vaccinated by september. 15th. other deputies assigned court. bayless and sf city hall would have to be vaccinated within 10 weeks of final fda approval, which would probably be later in the fall. we obviously encourage everyone to vaccinate and are consistent with the city's plans, but san francisco sheriff paul miyamoto confirmed that deputies to refuse shots could be disciplined up to including termination. they're welcome to express their opinion. i do want to make sure that we continue on the path we're on, which is to keep people educated as to what the
6:07 pm
processes are going to be for the city over at the san francisco police department about 17% of employees are not vaccinated. the city says vaccines are the best tools to keep everyone safe and about 70% of its workforce are fully vaccinated. henry lee ktvu, fox two news. well this week, san francisco general hospital gave out hundreds of pfizer and moderna shots. the people who've already received the johnson and johnson vaccine, health officials say the shots are being offered in response to patient concerns about the efficacy of the j and j vaccine. now no one is recommending to mix vaccines and at the world health organization. it is discouraging booster shots to make sure there are enough doses for poorer countries. with the delta variant becoming the dominant strain of covid-19 barria. health officials are now keeping an eye on a related strain called delta. plus, it differs from the delta variant by one gene mutation. it was first detected back in march in
6:08 pm
europe so far, 64 cases have been detected in santa clara county and two cases in marin county researchers are trying to learn how prevalent it is. and if delta plus is more easily transmissible, it's important not only in identifying new variants but also really important in ensuring that the current vaccines the pfizer, moderna and the johnson and johnson are remaining. it's effective against these newer variants. dr singh tells us that the vast majority of the cases so far are among unvaccinated people, particularly when it comes to the severe cases, including those that involve hospitalization. napa county wants everyone to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. county now joined seven other bay area counties that implemented the indoor mask mandate on tuesday. napa held off at first on the mandate over concerns that it might discourage people from getting vaccinated. solano
6:09 pm
county is now the only area county that does not have a mask mandate today, governor gavin newsom talked about the states reopening plan for schools. it's a 123 billion education package that will provide money for universal tk increased staffing and universe. school meals more than $4 billion will provide funding for students with mental health challenges, the governor said. distance learning took a toll on students, and they'll need all the help they can get this fall. and so we're here, sober and humbled by the enormity of the challenge in front of us to make up for that, and to not allow our kids to be left behind, the governor said the state's mask mandate for students will be enforced by individual school districts. well the white house keeps focus today on encouraging people to get vaccinated. want to thank the local leaders in the private sector. leaders who are imposing vaccine requirements. america can beat
6:10 pm

6:15 pm
to have friends come over and watch the games and putin holler and all that stuff, but nothing is like being at the actual game. in fact, fans say they even missed the tedious parts of a day at the stadium, even sitting through traffic. you can miss that little stuff waiting in line for concessions, bathrooms. all that good stuff. i mean, i miss it all. even the even the messy stuff. you know, saturday's event is just an open practice, although a big one. it's also dwight clark day. and will honor the 49 are great. i'm hoping it's going to get the players fired up to have the fans there and have them win some games and feel good and show off and show their talent. fans say they're hopeful this is the beginning of a great season one that covid won't put a damper on well, everybody's getting their shots. so let's hope so. the open practice inside levi stadium goes from 10 until noon on saturday. tickets are still available and their $10 apiece. the 49ers first preseason game against the chiefs is set for august 14th in santa clara and

6:17 pm
days. the week we will cool things off a bit as we head into your forecast for tomorrow as we head into what your saturday here's a satellite, and we're checking out all that smoke moving in from the north, a complex of fires, producing all that smoke, and it's just a change in the wind direction that northerly flow that transports the smoke closer to the bay area. we still have the low clouds and fog. the typical fog hanging out coast side and right around portions of the bay. current numbers out there. we're showing you some eighties and nineties. well, inland san francisco 64, santa rosa. lower eighties 82 degrees, and here is the plan tomorrow morning's the clouds or be out there. temperatures in the fifties and the sixties and then into the afternoon hours by three or four o'clock, there's the eventual temperature range for the sixties to mostly the lower nineties. most areas should be a touch cooler as we head into your saturday but once again hazy sunshine still that smoke a part of our forecast. it's still a little bit cooler across portions of the bay area. we will continue to cool things off in the five day we'll have more on that with your full

san francisco labor lawyer and former head of the e d d as long as you have. this large number of californians receiving unemployment insurance. it's very hard to get those call numbers down, according to the e d. d it fielded more than 3.4 million calls last week, but it answered only about 248,000 about 7% the e. d. d has hired thousands of workers and is upgrading its system. it's very frustrating. it shouldn't be this way. but it does ultimately succeed for most people. i just want something you know something, you know, saying and, um to take this pressure off me, you know, i don't know. i don't know how much more i could tape. jarvis has contacted his local state senator to help resolve his case. the e d. d did not respond to our questions by deadline. rob rock, ktvu, fox two news. the byd administration has extended the pause on federal student loan payments. the relief plan was
6:33 pm
set to expire next month. well now federal student loan payments will remain suspended through january of next year. the department of education says it will be the final extension borrowers have not had to make payments since march of 2021 former president trump signed the cares act well, the july jobs report released today shows 943,000 jobs were added. last month. that's much higher than the 860,000 economists had expected. the unemployment rate decrease from june to 5.4% from 5.9% it's all proof that the economy continues to rebound. still today, president biden warned that surging delta cases could set the economy back. if more people. do not get vaccinated and after the labor department released the jobs report, stocks closed mostly higher. on wall street. the dow was up 144 points for new record close. the nasdaq fell 59 points with tech stocks losing ground, the
6:34 pm
s and p well, it added seven points enough to get another all time high. every major indices ended the week on the upside after falling last week. financial companies will they had the. biggest gains today. u s senators are expecting to weigh in on the $1 trillion infrastructure bill with a key vote tomorrow. president biden calls the spending plan and historic investment in public works projects. the congressional budget office expects the spending plan would add $256 billion to the nation's deficit over the next decade. well, that does concern many republicans, it appears others are still committed to the bipartisan bill. the cbo score is not the only thing that matters when it comes to the pay for an asset like infrastructure has as its primary purpose. the movement of goods and services in our economy for rule if it's approved by the senate, the bill next will head to the house. some house democrats say they will vote for it only if
6:35 pm
they get to renegotiate some projects that were left out of the bill. i'm willing to support it as long as we see momentum and a forward moving process on the reconciliation package. overall the infrastructure bill calls for $550 billion in new spending over five years. that's on top of infrastructure spending already planned at the federal level, bringing the bill to that $1 trillion price tag. well, more states are now implementing mask mandates for schools, but other states will they are pushing ahead with laws banning them. this debate comes as new covid cases are at their highest levels in six months nationwide, more than 100,000 infections were reported in the us foxes. david lee miller has more. as the spread of the delta variant increases. classrooms are becoming a flashpoint in the showdown over mandates. on friday, new jersey became the latest state to require masks and schools for teachers and students joining at least 10, others. the daily average for
6:36 pm
new cases has now surged to just under 90,000 and hospitalizations are up 43% from last week, officials say. mitigation efforts like masks are the best way to stop the spread. anyone telling you that we can safely reopen our schools without requiring everyone inside to wear a mask is quite simply lying to you. at least nine other states are going in the opposite direction banning mask mandates in schools, saying it should be up to individual districts to decide on covid restrictions, drawing mixed reactions from parents tell us an issue like it was before. i guess it teaches them. i feel really upset that we didn't have a safe choice. meanwhile the white house is doubling down on its efforts. to get americans to roll up their sleeves more than 350 million doses have been administered so far, but that's not enough, president biden now reportedly considering withholding federal funds to states and institutions that don't mandate vaccines for employees want to thank the local leaders in the private sector. leaders who are
6:37 pm
imposing vaccine requirements. america can beat the delta. very the fda says it's already working on a strategy to distribute vaccine boosters, which could come as early as next month in new york. david lee miller fox news well, the defense team for the man accused in the killing of christian smart is hoping to call convicted killer scott peterson to the stand to testify. paul floors has been charged with murdering smart who disappeared 25 years ago, but his defense lawyer is calling on peterson the testify. because he and smart knew each other while they both attended. cal poly peterson was sentenced in 2000 and five for murdering his wife, lacey and their unborn child. ktvu legal analyst. my gardos a said he doubts peterson will ever take the stand well in the defense world. what we call that is a soda defend some other dude, did it. not my client. it's not

down a $1000 deposit over the next few months. the flight is scheduled for takeoff late next month and will also carry members of the italian air force. virgin galactic's first flight took place last month. well barry weather if we do not have the smoke, we'd be talking about the award about today. we'll still talk about the warm up, but of course, the smoke continues to top our weather headlines in the air quality as well. our initial thinking we're expecting that smoke to be up above. maybe 5000 ft, but some of that has made it closer to the surface impacting some. not all air quality sensors, vaca veil and conquered. you can see unhealthy reports right now. liver more unhealthy for sensitive groups vallejo in san jose, and that moderate range in most of the bay area in that moderate range. the source of the smoke. you can see here all the wildfire activity up to our north, especially for these three fires. the mcfarland, the monument and the river complex, really setting up the smoky pattern for us here in the bay area, the air quality advisory
6:49 pm
continues into your saturday and you can see the smoke forecast model keeping that smoke around. maybe some improvement by tomorrow afternoon and then definitely some improvement as we head into the second half of the weekend highs from this afternoon. you can see it's hot and led some upper nineties out toward concord and fairfield livermore, mid nineties san francisco 70 and santa rosa in the upper eighties. so once again we're not tracking cloud cover here. it's all that smoke and haze drifting overhead. we also have the fog hanging out near the coast and right around portions of the bay this evening current numbers out there. we'll check in on those for the six o'clock our san francisco 64 santa rosa 82 degrees seventies and fremont and some nineties out toward livermore. add in walnut creek. so why smoking today? it's kind of this guy here this area of low pressure that northerly flow has kind of been a transport mechanism to bring in that smoke from the north. so that smoke kind of settles in tonight into saturday morning, so air quality could continue to be an issue but a coolie trend this weekend as this guy
6:50 pm
wants to move in, and this will ultimately clear out or improve our air quality as we head into a sunday so once again still some smoking some haze. for tomorrow, especially for the morning hours could be improving as we head into the afternoon hours and forecast highs for you saturday a little bit cooler than today. still some nineties inland out toward antioch out toward livermore and conquered san jose 82 oakland, 73, san francisco today 70 degrees tomorrow, a little bit cooler by about four degrees will go 66 the cooling trend kind of begins for you saturday and it continues as we head into a sunday. and then into early next week. hopefully we get all that smoke out of here and a little bit of a cooling trend for monday, and then we'll grab you warm up those numbers by tuesday and into wednesday of next week, but unfortunately once again as we head into the weekend, especially for the first half is saturday that smoke will probably settle in overnight it could be around it could impact air quality first thing tomorrow morning jet. all right. thank you so much mark and up next in sports. the
