hazy skies out there and as we look at air quality we have slipped and notice as we look a little bit further to the east all of the oranges and reds that are coming towards us as that air continues to truck in. so this is where we're at right now and you can see we have yellow, which is moderate air quality in san francisco and marin county, but head up to santa rosa, and that's unhealthy for sensitive groups. same story in oakland same story down in the south bay is well down in san jose you can see and you just had to head over to concord and you know livermore and see that they're now in that unhealthy groups. so this is the forecast for tomorrow unfortunately we do have that spare the air alert today and into tomorrow and we're kind of stuck with this until we start to get wind coming onshore and that is not going to be until sunday night. so all of this is happening because high pressure is off the coast and that is actually helping to drive with clockwise circulation some of the wind from the north our way and that is what is bringing it down to our level now, not all of it makes it down to the surface, but enough of it today that it is seriously affecting our air

6:22 pm
serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪

6:25 pm
unique ways to get through to someone who is rob ross spoke with the man who hired a phone bought service or many people, calling the california employment development department or tdd for help they don't get much further than this thank you for calling the employment development department unemployment insurance customer service center at least you're just frustrated because you can't get ahold of anybody. desmond silva of tracy still hasn't received his benefits from when he was furloughed from tesla more than a year ago and he says he also hasn't received his unemployment benefits from when his job ended in june you see the fraudulent claims that are throughout eddie dennis things like the criminals got paid while the people that really need it are really sitting in limbo now. where it seems like the criminals got off with the fraud and it just seems like the people that really needed are really struggling now, silva says he called the dd constantly records show the edie was getting 2.1 million calls a week last month. no luck at all. that's why i decided to

call give the body tried the but it's a service that enlists an automated artificially intelligent web robot for $50 it relentlessly called the e d. d for two days 50 bucks is nothing if i get ahold of somebody and it got hold of somebody on the second day, unfortunately silva was told he needed a different department and is now getting help with his claim but if it wasn't for the body wouldn't have known where to go it reflects the, um. um, great overloaded the system and the desperation people. michael bernick is the former head of the e, d d and now at an employment and labour lawyer in san francisco for each individual. it makes sense to make as many calls or hire people to make calls um collectively it leads to a system that just is overloaded with calls and means that nobody is able to get through easily the e d. d provided a statement to ktvu pointing out. it has a callback system for those who leave their number

6:31 pm
officials say pollution levels from the wildfires are worse than previously anticipated so anyone with respiratory issues is advised to try to stay inside with those windows and doors shut are you watching ktvu fox two news tonight at 6 30 as we mentioned earlier, there are more than a dozen act of wildfires trading resources across the state right now, more than 15,000 firefighters are working with those fires and cal fire's jonathan cox joins us now without more perspective on challenges ahead for firefighters. jonathan thank you so much for joining us. let's start of course with the calgary fire. there are two big issues right now. first cruiser trying to protect the town of strawberry. how is that going? yeah that's right, andre our crews are in there right now, really focusing on the priorities which is structure protection throughout that whole eldorado county obviously there's two big priorities that's on either side of the fire both the west side on the east side and really what we are struggling with at the moment is just the weather we get this heat wave that comes through and pushes the win. one way. the low pressures that
6:32 pm
come through and push the winds in the opposite direction. so work really fighting fire on two fronts there, and that is one of the highest priorities for us in the state. at the moment the east side of the fire really the big problem because it encroaches closer to the tahoe basin crews ready to defend echo summit south lake tahoe. um you mentioned the weather, but is there is there any hope of being successful in the spot over the next few days? yeah you know, the next few days will be critical for us you know, the longer term whether forecast for the area is a little bit more favorable as we get through the weekend and into early next week but what concerns us is just the wind that's associated with any sort of weather pattern and change uh in those areas and obviously the tahoe basin being one of the biggest concern, so there's resources from throughout the state on the line right now rotations getting more apparatus into place as best as possible and we were really kind of in that mid summer battle rhythm right now of getting resources deployed and moved around the highest priorities. speaking of
6:33 pm
another high priority here, the biggest wildfire still the dixie fire burning now for six weeks nearly 750,000 acres burned almost 700 homes destroyed whereas containment at now and what's the major issue keeping the flames going at this point, jonathan yes so we're over 40% contained on that fire now this has been a battle. it's been a unprecedented fire for just where it's burning how it's burned and kind of how long it's consumed. fuel for crews are getting a good. a good containment on that fire. you know, it's trending in the right direction new incident management team will be transitioning to that fire in the next few days, and so things are looking up there there's some optimism not to say that we're out of the woods by any means. but things are looking up, and i think one of the top priorities and the concerns right now is really that eldorado and called or fire and back to the you're sick you're transitioning on the dixie fire to a new incident command team. what's the significance of that change over? yes, the significance of that is just making sure that
6:34 pm
we're rotating our cruise through these incidents if we have crews that are in place too long. we really like to get them off get them two days rest and get them some rest and relaxation so they are able to get back out there. we're only halfway through the fire season right now, typically the worst months or ahead of us and although we have major fires burning across the state we're doing two things at once we're focussing on the now and the emergencies at hand as well as planning for what the next step. eight and kind of 15 weeks look like all right, jonathan cox spokesperson for cal fire. thank you so much for bringing your insight into the caldera fire and the dixie fires burning right now across california appreciate it. thanks well, the family of fallen san francisco firefighter jason cortezis still in mourning, but they've got one less thing to worry about. now. cortez died in october of last year when he fell during a training exercise he left behind a wife and two young sons. as well as a mortgage to relieve some of
