11:00 pm
homes. the 11 o'clock news on ktvu fox news starts now the cash fire has burned only 80 acres, but it caused a lot of damage in a short amount of time. hello again, everyone i'm frank somerville and i'm heather holmes in tonight for julie. fire officials said. that fire is now about 20% contained but at least 60 homes have been destroyed into mobile. home parks and tonight the clear lake, director of emergency services declared a local emergency to help with the recovery efforts. the cash fire said a lot of smoke into the bay area today, air quality officials have now extended an air quality advisory through friday due to the hazy conditions. let's go now to our chief meteorologist, bill martin, with a look at what we can expect over the next few days. yeah heather, i think, unfortunately, smokes going to be a way of life for us the next few days, at least the next 48 ours is the wind patterns or such, so they're bringing the smoke in with a
11:01 pm
northerly wind tonight and then they don't really kick up a westerly wind aggressively enough to push it out of here because once the smoke settles in, as we found out in the past, it tends to linger can't really see the smoke in this shot. but if you look up at the moon tonight, you will the reason for the smoke coming in tonight and even last night was this high in this low? what happens is the winds coming out of the north and look for those arrows are blowing just. brings that smoke right into the bay area, and so that pressure gradients going to loosen tomorrow, but then the winds kind of just get a little bit funky. they go all over the place, but not very aggressively in any direction, so that's going to allow the fog to stick around the good thing or fog. smoke pardon me. the good thing about the smoke, though, is it's up at a higher elevation, so if you're down at the surface down near sea level, not such a problem, but i will assert that in the mornings and the evenings, the smoke does settle down further towards the surface. so that might be something you're smelling even tonight. um, i think tomorrow night's possible as we look at the smoke model. there it is. that's tomorrow morning. that's tomorrow afternoon. that's
11:02 pm
friday morning. that's friday afternoon, and it just hangs on not intense, but enough to be annoying. that's the story for the rest of this week, at least into friday, saturday should be better and sunday. hopefully, it'll clear out. well, thank you more now on the cash fire, which caused so much chaos for the communities of clear lake and lower lake today, katie views deborah villalon is right in the middle of some of the worst damage, deborah. well frank, two mobile home parks burn the creek side and the cache creek estates up and down the streets we see home after home leveled that estimate of 60 destroyed seems likely to go higher. it's totally wiped out. everything is gone out of their people near the trailer parks knew from the noise. fire had hit. all you heard was explosion after explosion because they're all on propane tanks from sky fox. the devastation is clear. dozens of homes destroyed by the cash
11:03 pm
fire, which started about a half mile away and was dispatch, like so many others, a couple acres, rapid rate of spread extreme in gusting winds. an aggressive attack by air and ground managed to keep this fine. from exploding like so many others this season and past kind of experience for the last 10 years, horrific fires, so it's not the worst. we just had a lot better outcome than our previous ones and red flag preparation helped engines were fully staffed and prepositioned 80 acres is not really big, but the amount of damage that's contained in this 80 acres is pretty devastating. this was home to many seniors and low income residents. recovery will be hard and most of them left too fast to take anything one had to be forcibly removed. the mobile home right next door to that person was on fires actively burning. the person didn't want to go and we had to take that person out, and there was some scary moments during evacuation when fire spread through tree canopies and jumped roads trapping rescuers are first responders that we're

11:20 pm

11:21 pm
high volume covid testing site opened in the south of market neighborhood. that side is there at seventh and brandon and will administer about 500 covid test today, officials say they are seeing an increasing cases and that this is a way to get people back to work in school. the side is open by appointment only between nine and 67 days a week and sonoma county there was a 60% increase in demand for covid testing. over the past month. the chronicle reports the county has gone from offering 1000 tested. week. 2 14,000 county health officials say they've seen an increase in infections and younger age. groups, including children, all right, we've got some nice weather to talk about, except for the smoke. of course we do have temperatures tomorrow. they're gonna be very similar to what we had today, which was pretty pleasant in terms of heat. it wasn't that hot. a lot of that has to do with smoke and filtering out the sunshine and cooling things off a good five. maybe 10 degrees. so these are the highs today, um. antioch
11:22 pm
may make upper eighties low nineties tomorrow, but i think it will be very similar where it was today. i think the smoke will be very similar to where it was today. um so as you look at the bay bridge traffic moving smoothly, you don't see the smoke here. but if you look up at the moon tonight, we did this earlier, we had it on the live camera. you can look up at the moon. it's red or orange. this is the story with the smoke. it's at higher elevations. so if you're smelling it, obviously you're breathing it, but most of the smoke is up above 2000 ft, at least for now. come down a little bit overnight into the morning, but it's kind of most of its hovering pretty high up there. here's what the model does here is tomorrow morning. give you five where we are. look at the smoke and that's like today. the white is where it's really bad. that's those are the reds on the clear air maps and then here we are into friday, and then here we are in a friday night, so it doesn't the winds are such that we're not going to get a big clearing of smoke out of here. so. i think we have to get used to it, but just feel better and knowing that most of the stuff's up off the ground, so
11:23 pm
we're not breathing it as much and if you are and you're smelling it a lot, then you are so that's when you want to get the hepa filters and shut the doors and it depends which your issues are. if you have respiratory issues, because i know that people that do it's not good. it's brutal, so wildfire smoke around the next few days, bad in tahoe as well as you know, these are the forecast highs for tomorrow, again pretty much spot on where they were yesterday and then the five day forecast. so the weekend i think saturday will start to clear out nicely, but it looks like thursday and friday. kind of like it was today. temperatures on the mild side that red flag warning will be dropped up around the lake county area, and we should mellow out the fire danger a little bit. that's the hope. i'll see you back here tomorrow night. yeah, that would certainly be good news. all right, bill. thank you were coming up tonight. the a's get the chicago white sox on their heels, but which team would get the last laugh marcus up next to show us how it all went down.
11:24 pm
yeah, i mean the thing is, people like geico because it's just easy. bundling for example. you've got car insurance here. and home insurance here. why not... schuuuuzp.. put them together. save even more. some things are just better together, aren't they? like tea and crumpets. but you wouldn't bundle just anything. like, say... a porcupine in a balloon factory. no. that'd be a mess. i mean for starters, porcupines are famously no good in a team setting.
11:25 pm
geico. save even more when bundle home and car insurance. at usaa, we've been called too exclusive. because we were created for officers. but as we've evolved with the military, we've grown to serve all who've honorably served. no matter their rank, or when they were in. a marine just out of basic, or a petty officer from '73. and even his kids. and their kids. usaa is made for all who've honorably served and their families. are we still exclusive? absolutely. and that's exactly why you should join.
11:26 pm
are we still exclusive? absolutely. room tonight. if you follow the giants, you know they've been hot problem is they lose a game and the dodgers are smoking hot, actually lost a little ground on a great home. stand seven and two this afternoon trying to sweep the meds they could use. uh the real yes to start hitting the park didn't happen. we got a one nothing lead for the giants in the ninth inning. jake mcgee gave it up blew the save, so it's 11. could have been a whole lot worse if it wasn't for this great play from brandon crawford. what's new, right? just all year long offensively and defensively, he'll get the force and second to prevent further damage. for the meantime and more great defense coming up from san francisco, they are one of the best defensive teams in all of baseball. lamonte wade back
11:27 pm
junior in left, take an extra bases away from former giant kevin pilar probably saved a run right there. in the 10th inning. so in the 11th inning, the giants find themselves down. 2 to 1. i got that magical runner at second base in the person of lamonte wade jr. tommy la stella smokes it too, right? that's a clean base. it weighed scores easily. it's 2 to 2. they threatened in the inning, some more, but that was pretty much it so in the 12 to on again for people are not. you're not going to keep him in the yard, and that think is long gone up. tyler chat would new coming to the giants bullpen? that's a three run shot six to the final. they do take two out of three for the men's, but the dodgers win and they are within three in the western division on the south side of chicago tonight, they got a great ball club there, leading the central by plenty. big crowd shows up to see the a's trailing 31 in the seventh
11:28 pm
elvis andrus soft liner to center in one of those want to get away moments is elvis was not running. out of the batter's box too fast, probably could add an inside the parker winds up with a triple scored on a sacrifice fly. oh that's got to be humiliating out there for robert. nothing to do 32. but remember that guy liam hendriks, former a comes in with a five out save. in fact, he struck out the side of the ninth. down goes jet he's got 28 saves 32 is the final and pretty good news with regard to chris bassett. he's been released from the hospital after getting hit by that line drive, and he will have to undergo surgery to repair a fracture in his cheekbone. but for the most part, good news. hey, you want to see a guy? who is healthy on both sides. shohei otani. unbelievable to pitched eight innings tonight gave up only one run to the tigers struck out eight. his
11:29 pm
records that 81 with 2 27 9 e r a and not to forget he could get a little bit too. he's the fastest to 40 home runs in angels is street. and by the way, he's the major league leader in home runs. with that 40 total. this just doesn't happen in baseball, but it is this year with shohei otani. alright heather frank, you guys know have a little bit of a sweet tooth. i don't know where you stand on cotton candy. but here's a youngster, i love it. you need to check this out. we have a convert here. it was beautiful, you know, eat it. the right thing. it. is soft, isn't it? we'll get rid of body pretty much. and this. the smile comes around. yeah, there
