tv   KTVU FOX 2 News at 4  FOX  July 25, 2022 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
terrain, triple digit temperatures and dry conditions brought on by years of drought. reality is that we are still paying for that extended period of drought left a lot of available fuel throughout california, and now we're having these mega devastating fires. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourth and we'll get to that large fire in just a moment. but right now we want to bring you breaking news of another fire that's happening in the city of alameda, a fire in a building near ranger avenue and pan am way you can see the flames and some of that smoke now coming from the roof of this building, as firefighters just douse it with a ton of water. this is in the alameda point area in the city of alameda. they have already called for mutual aid from oakland fire. you can see that this is in fact, a large building, but it also appears as though the firefighters have made a lot of progress. we're working to find out more exactly what this building is used for if it was vacant if it was
4:01 pm
occupied, we do have a crew on the way and will continue to monitor this breaking story of mutual aid called for a large fire in the city of alameda. meantime firefighters up near yosemite or hoping for combat conditions, and that it those conditions can help them get the oak fire. better under control. welcome everyone to the four this afternoon. i'm heather holmes. good afternoon. i'm alex savage. the oak fire started on friday afternoon, and it has quickly grown to nearly 17,000 acres or roughly 26 square miles. crews do have 10% containment on this fire. but cal fire says the speed and behavior of the fire is unprecedented. more than 4000. people are under evacuation orders right now. and although the area where the fire is burning is sparsely populated, at least 15 buildings have been either damaged or destroyed. ktvu tom baker has been following this fire situation. he joins us now live in the newsroom with some updates. tom well. so far, only a handful of homes have actually been lost.
4:02 pm
but tens of thousands of wildlife continue to lose their homes. the oak fires as much an air war as a ground war. this jumbo jet dropped retardant to help create a firebreak along with dozer crews on the ground to slow the fire's progress down whether or not that tactic will work is mostly dependent on canyon winds, blowing embers and unburned areas behind the break. 3000 mariposa evacuees from 2900 residences. have been replaced by 2500 firefighters, many of which are from the bay area fire departments as well as beyond then includes a fully wildfire qualified 14 member crew from san francisco, using five state owned wild fire trucks arrived late last evening and put on the plan for today. how long the duration unknown like all mutual aid crews, they arrive with tasks already assigned that
4:03 pm
could range from a stroke. culture defense to fire front following. to a numerous things if needed. after 15 days, the current crew will be swapped for a fresh one. for now. this fire is made worse by high temperatures. low humidity dry brush made dryer by three years of drought. it's made even more dangerous by hundreds of thousands of standing and fallen drought, disease and beetle killed trees. ready to burn all things being equal. if you had the same conditions on the ground today, and you added more wind, yeah, you would see more extreme fire behavior. local officials are scanning social media for fake charity victim relief or go fund me sites, and attorney general rob bonta is warning that price gouging during a state of emergency is a jail crime. a few opportunistic criminals, including some posing as media have been caught trying
4:04 pm
to get beyond police barricades to loot evacuated homes and businesses. i wanted to make it sure clear to individuals who might have that intent for our community that we will prosecute them. since monday. the 18th the number of acres actually burned for the entire year so far has increased by 51% and that's just in one week. that's a bad omen as we move into hotter, drier and, most importantly, windier weather, but since so many people in california hard hearing to defensible space requests, plus the world class firefighting we've seen throughout it's far better than we were at the very same time slashed this last year, so things are definitely dangerous , but they're better than they were reporting live. tom baker, ktvu fox two news, tom. thank you. well, you briefly heard from him just moments ago in tom's report, and now jonathan pierce of cal. fire joins us now live. thank you so much. for being here, boy. this fire it
4:05 pm
really took off. yes it did. we've seen extreme fire behavior with this fire, and as of right now, it's currently at 16,791 acres with 10% containment. so what are the areas right now of most concern? any areas around neighborhoods that could be impacted by the fire or the highest concern, and i think we're seeing most of that activity along the eastern edge of this incident. are you anticipating more potential evacuations, more road closures and if so, just along that same area that you were describing there? so with the fire of this size and how dynamic it is, it's now impacting a larger geographic area. so some parts of the fire going to be more extreme than other parts of the fire and those decisions to open. or lift evacuation orders were issued. new ones really depends on where they are and at
4:06 pm
the discretion of the local sheriff's office, as well as the fire agencies involved in this incident. we know though, that this is rugged terrain, steep terrain, so it doesn't appear as though right in the initial vicinity of the fire, and the flames is heavy, heavily populated. do you anticipate, though, that shifting. correct most of the fire is in the wild land urban interface, so communities interspersed in the wild land. i know the fires, primarily moving east northeast , where there are fewer communities. there is also the ferguson fire scar, which would aid and fire suppression. okay, the governor declared a state of emergency over the weekend. how will that proclamation help cal fire. we currently have 2548 resources on this fire, and we are getting more resources every day we've had some special air
4:07 pm
resources assigned to this incident, particularly very large tankers, so they're able to drop a tremendous amount of fire retardant as we look ahead in the next few hours the next few days. what are you anticipating in the ongoing firefight right now? 10% containment. hopefully you're able to increase that. hopefully, that number will go up. i think we're gonna see some similar weather patterns as we have today, and in the days past there is a thunder there, whether cells moving over the eastern sierras, which potentially could bring moisture , which would help with nightly our age recovery, so that could aid in virus suppression efforts. okay well, we hope so. alright i really appreciate your time this afternoon. thanks again for coming on and good luck in the firefight. thank you. as monkeypox continues to spread, san francisco's department of public health has noticed cases increasing at an
4:08 pm
alarming rate among the city's latino population. ktvu christian captain tells us the department of health is working with community groups to warn latinos and help them take steps to protect themselves. san francisco is closely monitoring the spread of monkeypox. the latest data from friday show a total of 197 confirmed cases in the city. that data also showing a disturbing trend that although latinos make up just 15% of san francisco's population, 30% of the city's monkeypox cases are among latinos. the city's department of public health says it's closely monitoring the spread of the disease. we're building our efforts on our ah! ah successes learn from, you know, 30 seasons like like like covid, right and other other stds like syphilis. hiv latinos say they're worried that justice with covid monkeypox will continue having an outsized impact on their community. venezuelan i was born and raised there, but i'm going to the united states seven years ago.
4:09 pm
and yes, i have noticed that when they see sis, you know, and things hit us. it's always us that take the hardest hit, the department of public health says with limited supplies of vaccine it is working with community groups on outreach and helping to get latinos vaccinated. one of those groups is the latino task force. we know that health disparities, social disparities , economic disparities hit our communities first, right, so here we are again with monkeypox emerging in our community. the latino task force started during the pandemic as the latino population faced a disproportionate impact from covid, the group now using its outreach programs, such as food distribution, to inform the community community kind of relies on us every thursday to get tested or under vaccinated, so we're kind of hoping to be this same hub for them every thursday, hopefully for the same monkey pox vaccine and try to be discreet and low barrier. san francisco's department of health has set aside 30% of the vaccine that it has for distribution to
4:10 pm
those communities that are most impacted and is relying on community groups to help organize that distribution in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news tomorrow, there was supposed to be a monkey pox vaccine clinic at zuckerberg, san francisco general hospital, but the health department announced this afternoon it will be closed because of a lack of vaccine. as for when the clinic will reopen , the health department says they have not been updated on when they will receive more doses. the city says they have requested 35,000 doses from the federal government and have only received 7800 of them. for more on the monkeypox outbreak and the response here in the bay area. we're joined now by dr peter chin hong infectious disease specialist at ucsf, doctor, always great to see you and get your perspective here. a lot of frustration and a lot of anger, especially in the lgbt q community in san francisco, about the slow roll out of the vaccine and the poor response to this outbreak so far. why do you believe we're in this position
4:11 pm
where in san francisco cases are climbing, and the city is not even close to meeting the demand for vaccine doses? well i like so i think it's a complex confluence of factors. the first is that there's only one factory in the world that makes it and it's in denmark and they've put in the order, but we didn't have enough in stock piles. um the other aspect is that, um until recently, crystal says, one prioritized, so people were, you know, uh, in line for their second doses, so that was meant that only half the amount of folks could be, um, vaccinated. and i think, frankly, it took everyone by surprise. uh no one expected the signs and symptoms to be so subtle and that regular contact tracing one work at the end of the day. you require funding and this is not covid funding. so that's come out of another park of pocket of money you touched on this with the monkey pox vaccine is obviously it's a two dose series, but in
4:12 pm
san francisco because of the lack of doses there prioritizing those first doses for people to do you. you agree with this overall strategy. it's kind of like what we saw early on during the covid outbreak here and does just one dose of the monkey pox vaccine offer enough protection to kind of slow the spread in the community. yes definitely. um we have some laboratory data , um, saying that you can actually have two years up to two years of protection just from one dose alone. it's not like the covid vaccine where you need to count as the prime, um those, so it's a little bit different. the second dose in monkey pox is so have you gone for years, of course. we prefer to have everything in order, but the uk and new york everyone started prioritizing first doses , and that's what the city started doing as a friday. alright so this declaration here from the world health organization came down over the weekend, they have declared monkeypox, a global health emergency. that's the highest level of alert. that the agency
4:13 pm
has. how do you think this is going to improve the public health response to the outbreak here on the ground level in the bay area? is this going to lead to more vaccine doses arriving here? in short order? you think no, not immediately. um, i think it will have more implications globally. first the u. s still has to declare it a public health emergency to devote specific funding to it and to make it easier for diagnostics testing and treatment, but for right now, uh, it's really because many countries are very, very under resourced. and it will allow tracking across borders so again. much of this is slow, unfortunately, and i wish it could be foster because it's a very, uh important time right now, if we don't want it to become part of our daily life and become endemic let me ask you here so far. obviously you know what we're seeing in san francisco. play out is that the population most affected by the monkeypox outbreak is men who
4:14 pm
have sex with men with multiple partners. what what is your expectation about the likelihood this virus will will soon spread beyond that group into the broader population? i think for now it's little likelihood. but if this continues and nobody knows exactly when, but could theoretically side those households where people have had infection, like the two kids on friday, but again very, very low likelihood at this moment, but again, things are changing. quickly and in the meantime, the most important steps that you think people should be taking to reduce the chance of becoming infected. well um, i think it's for temporarily. uh temporarily . people can take measures of limiting sexual partners may be using condoms, etcetera, but again, i think you have to meet people where they are, and above all, they are some civil linings . if people get exposed, you can
4:15 pm
still use one dose of the boxing to prevent the occurrence of disease if people get really, really sick, we have therapeutics primary, you know, available in the area, and, uh, above all. no one has died in the united states from this, so it's a little bit different, important to point that out and put it all in perspective. we appreciate your time and insight, as always, dr. peter chen hong from ucsf. good to see you. thank you. thanks so much, alex. coming up for us here on the floor. today members of the san francisco branch of the cpr calling for school board member and shoe to resign, the disconnect they say she has with the black community. and excusee over the weekend, while los that several shooters may have been involved. around the bay area this afternoon temperatures running a little bit cooler for inland communities will have a look at the current conditions

4:37 pm
situations. but what my job is the chief is to give them the resources they need to be able to put it into this behavior. and what i'm really going to start doing is pushing for some of our state elected officials that we give more resources toward local agencies, whether it be toward dedicated enforcement overtime toward the sideshow advanced and we certainly need some greater restrictions towards some of the things that happened with the legal penalties for participating in these dangerous side shows here in the communities across california you mentioned also making some efforts to try to reduce gun activity in the city of santa rosa. how do you plan to go about doing that? that's gonna be really a two part plan. it's going to be starting with some more directed enforcement out there in our community and targeting some of the areas that we've seen some gun violence working with some of the serial offenders that we have here in our community that have repeatedly been involved in acts of violence, and then also working with our santa rosa mi the root causes of this violence in our community, helping do some education, whether it be in
4:38 pm

4:39 pm
we're all on the same page. we all have the same mission. we want to safe and vibrant city for all of us to be able to live in and do better working and play in and it's important that i'm able to be able to lead our police department and make sure we meet those community expectations. alright and best of luck to the new chief in santa rosa. relief is on the way for some americans dealing with record temperatures over the weekend, which parts of the country are cooling off, while other regions are expected to hit triple digits. and look at your tuesday forecast, as well as the slight slight chance of thunderstorms. i
