station will likely take months. some napa county winery owners have new plans to protect their property. ktvu is tom baker shows us what they're doing, because they don't believe they can count on cal fire crews if there's a wildfire in their area. last september and october. is glass fire, damaged or destroyed? 28 napa county wineries, prompting a growing number of vintners to take self action. that's fire really brought home. the. the challenge that we face and, uh, motivated all of us to try to get ahead of this rather than just responding to it, and that means to protect your property, adding water supplies, adding sprinkler systems. clearing vegetation besides using earth moving equipment to create fire breaks or dig more ponds for water supplies. some are buying new or used firefighting equipment. especially water pumping tankers to take the fight to the encroaching fire. some are also training staff to
6:15 pm
fight fires, not just to save the wineries but their own livelihoods. but even they are not trying to replace cal fire or are volunteer firefighters. we are not advocating wholesale firefighting by private entities, even though vineyards are great fire breaks the vintners multi pronged approach includes creating larger, defensible space is also. better forest management fuel reductions off premises, adding staff and equipment to official fire protection agencies and vigorous post fire replanting to enhance water retention and reduced landslides. wineries have been plagued also by wildfire, insurance cancellations and less coverage and even if they can get it, a restricted level of coverage, they're paying up to four or five times as much as they used to. it's so bad. the governor just signed a bill allowing wineries to get into the state fair plan. california's insurer of last resort that in of itself is a good thing.
6:16 pm
however, the amount of coverage that the fair plan is able to extend is very small and make no mistake, although 95% of napa vineyards are small and family owned, they are critically important to the california economy makes up only 4% of the total acreage here in the state, but we contribute about 33% of the overall value economically. so um, we're a small place with a big impact. inventors also worry about the other major issue. constant fires, scaring the tourists away. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news massive wildfires have now been raging for 13 days in turkey. most of the fires have been brought under control, but some are still burning in the southwestern part of the country. the wildfires broke out during a scorching heat wave in more than half of the provinces in turkey. at least eight people have been killed many villages and resorts have also been evacuated. okay

6:18 pm
even even eastern livermore county. you're seeing a little bit smoke. maybe you're smelling it as well. so as we look at that smoke forecast, it's a good one. for us. it's going to get better and better as the next few days go on. at least that's the hope. not so for everybody else to who still got some bad air quality as well as sacramento. the trend as i mentioned is warming up, so there goes and that's the planet. this is not a heatwave. it's just august weather and it's going to act like august weather and we're gonna see fire danger. elevate a little bit, we might see a little bit of return to smoke, especially in our inland valleys towards wednesday and thursday. we'll see how that goes, especially at nights and mornings, but as we go forward here, obviously no rain. we're most worried about fire, danger, and in our world, it could be a lot worse. so we're doing pretty good for that as well. this forecast keeps fog at the coast and some cool, moist onshore flows working in our favor. so when i come back, we're gonna take the five day forecast. we're gonna look at that and get you going with the rest of your week. all right, we'll see in a bit, bill. thank you. democrats. unveiled their multi trillion dollar spending plan today that

6:42 pm
to wear a mask in school all year round? what would you say to them? i would say to them that it's a temporary measure. we're hoping that it's not going to be forever, particularly since we hope that the vaccinations for kids under 12 will be approved soon on the eu. a uh so again, i think about mass is just really a temporary measure by far the lion's share of how we are going to be protected is by vaccination. all right. so in addition right now, until there is full approval in addition to wearing masks, indoors and outdoors, are there other things that kids can do that parents can tell their children to stay safe while they're at school? yes, definitely. so the cbc gave a menu of options for schools, and not all of them are sort of mandatory by their, uh, toolkit that schools and use mass. i think i'm probably the easiest thing, but they also include keeping that's three ft apart mentally. mission, but the most important thing by far is vaccinating the

adults in the children's lives. so teachers staff parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, you follow your former wall of immunity bodyguards around the kids that we care so much about with the highly contagious delta variant we're seeing in surge in the number of children now who are getting covid all across the country. serious is the illness for kids, most of whom, as you said, or not vaccinated? well, the data we have so far, even with delta is actually not too bad for kids, even though they comprise a larger proportion of cases in the country compared to previously and that's because we've immunized most of the older population, but by far most kids when they do get delta. of course, it's not as risky as adults have very mild illness. in fact, only 1. scent of kids hospitalized and 0.1 die. in fact, in kids under
6:44 pm
five years old and the whole state of california for the last 17 months we've had i think five deaths so more so than protecting the children. it's protecting the people that the children could bring the virus home, too. as we move on, what are your thoughts on vaccine mandates for teachers and school staff or regular testing? for instance, the oakland unified school district is offering regular testing for students. well i'll start with, uh, the more sort of optional one, which is regular testing. regular testing is again part of the toolkit of strategies that schools can use, but it's not a mandatory thing. so in other words, if you have my son, you have ventilation. you protect the kids by having the adults vaccinated. it's fine in terms of vaccine mandates. i don't think it's a bad idea in health care. we also take care of a vulnerable population which our patients and as you know, all healthcare workers are mandated to get a vaccine
6:45 pm
in the state of california. so likewise, i think teachers are taking care of the wards of all of us, all kids, so i think again protecting the kids. it's not only about protecting the individual, it's protecting the communion and i and in that realm, i think it's not a bad idea. all right. we will let that be the last word as students all across the bay area are heading back to school in the next week or so. dr peter chin hong. always good to see you. thanks for joining us tonight. thanks so much, julie. alrighty. then when we returned with weather will look at the air quality. how that's going to impact you the next couple of days and as well as a little bit of a warm up coming as we head towards the middle end of this week. right now we go to ktvu is alex savage, with a look at some of the stories we're working on for the 70 clock news on ktvu. plus frank. thank you coming up new tonight. another big tech company is closing its headquarters. we'll have the details on when zynga will relocate from san francisco, plus a judge denies
