tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  May 12, 2022 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
choice election instead of a referendum on how things are going in the country, a referendum on his handling of the economy, or inflation. he wants to make this a choice. which is why you're hearing day in and day out now the president amping up his rhetoric, saying, sort of things like the ultra maga republicans. he's trying to paint the republican party with the one brush stroke of donald trump, of the ultra maga wing. you're going to hear not just the president, chuck schumer said it yesterday. this is going to be day in and day out with democrats in terms of their rhetoric as they try a near impossible task probably to really make this a choice election. >> pretty optimistic president biden, though, david chalian. you heard this, he's predicting the democrats are actually going to pick up senate seats. what is your political analysis of his political analysis here? >> exactly. so, brianna, the president at fund-raisers now, this has become a regular part of his stump, is predicting picking up three senate seats that he thinks democrats can pick up three seats.
5:01 am
remember, we have got a 50/50 divided senate. there are four vulnerable democratic incumbents in arizona, georgia, nevada, and new hampshire. so the best opportunity for actual pickups, where democrats win a seat currently held by republicans, pennsylvania and wisconsin. those are probably the two best chances for democrats. if the president's prediction is right, that means democrats are winning in places like north carolina or ohio or florida. it is a pretty bold prediction given how closely divided the senate is and the way the map looks at the moment. >> so let's go to georgia now, because there is a trio of republican governors who are campaigning for governor brian kemp in his primary challenge against the trump-backed candidate. >> yeah. i mean, you know that there is probably not a single republican politician running this year that is more in donald trump's sights than the incumbent republican governor of georgia, brian kemp, all because he approved and certified a legitimate victory for joe biden
5:02 am
in 2020, when donald trump wanted him to overturn the election based on a lie. so, kemp has been in trump's sights. it is why the former republican senator david perdue has trump's backing in the race, trump basically brought him into the race, to try and defeat kemp. the polls right now have shown kemp in pretty good position. the primary is on may 24th. kemp is also clearly the choice of the establishment. the republican governor's association is getting involved in this primary because they are in the business of incumbent protection when kemp is the incumbent. and their co-chairs, doug ducey of arizona, current governor, pete ricketts, who had a victory, and chris christie all are going to go in the state, campaign across the state for kemp, all positioning themselves against donald trump inside their republican party. >> david, i want to rewind, if we can, a little bit and talk about the senate again. if people aren't paying attention to what's happening in senate race in pennsylvania on
5:03 am
the republican side, they should be. because it is fascinating. explain. >> yes, so it looks like a three-way race right now, john, heading into the final stretch to tuesday's primary. you've got dr. mehmet oz, obviously, donald trump's-backed candidate, you have david mccormick who had been a hedge fund guy and seen as a mainstream guy, but really mov e aggressively to court trump's endorsement to the right. he didn't get it. and then you have this surging candidate at the end here, kathy barnette. and she seems to be in a real three-way race, even though she is -- has got much less money, has not been spending nearly as much and just this week, big outside groups are getting involved and going on the air and it has rattled the oz and mccormick camps here and the republican establishment because she's not a known figure and she's really in the hunt here. this is going to be a wild final few days here and, remember, the entire battle for control of the
5:04 am
united states senate, john, may hinge on pennsylvania. as i said, democrats see it as one of their best pickup opportunities. which nominee emerges here is going to be critical to understanding whether or not republicans have a real shot at hanging on to this seat. >> one of the things you learn in negative campaigning and 101, one of my favorite classes in college, look, if candidate a and candidate b are beating the crap out of each other in negative ads, you know who it helps? candidate c. david chalian, great to see you. thank you so much. developing overnight, a russian civilian reportedly killed on russian soil by cross border shelling from ukraine. this appears to be a first in the nearly 11-week-old war and ukraine is not commenting. and new surveillance video obtained by cnn shows russian soldiers here shooting two unarmed civilians as they are just walking away, directly away from an encounter in the outskirts of kyiv. ukrainian prosecutors are investigating this incident as a war crime.
5:05 am
cnn's sara sidner is in kyiv for us, live, she has more on this horrifying incident. and it is all on tape, sara. there they are, walking with their backs turned to these russian soldiers. >> the video we obtained shows absolute disdain for human life. russian soldiers shown shooting two unarmed civilians in the back. this is a stark example of a potential war crime, perpetrated by russian forces. an example the world has not yet seen, russian soldiers shooting two civilians in the back. cnn obtained the surveillance video taken from this vehicle dealership that sits along the main highway to kyiv. the video is from the beginning, as russians tried and failed to shell their way to the capital. the fight along this road was clearly fierce. but what happened outside this business was not a battle
5:06 am
between soldiers or even soldiers and armed civilians. it was a cowardly, cold-blooded killing of unarmed men by russian forces. the soldiers show up, and begin breaking in, inside of a guard shack two ukrainian men prepare to meet them. we track down the men's identities, one is the owner of the business, whose family did not want him named, the other was hired to guard it. >> translator: my father's name is leonid alexi plav. >> reporter: his daughter wanted the world to know his name and what the russians did to him. both civilians, both unarmed, we know this because the video shows them greeting and getting frisked by the russian soldiers and then casually walking away. neither seemed to suspect what was about to happen. that is what a member of the civilian fighting force who talked to the men a couple of days before the attack told cnn. he did not want to be identified for security reasons.
5:07 am
>> translator: we came there earlier, we warned people to leave that place. we also hope for the humanity of russian soldiers. but unfortunately they have no humanity. >> reporter: you see the two men walking in the shadows toward the camera, behind them the soldiers they were just talking to emerge. a few more steps, and their bodies drop to the ground, dust shoots up from the bullets hitting the pavement. the soldiers have opened fire. minutes later, the guard, leonid, gets up, limping, but alive. he manages to get inside the guard booth to make a call to the local guys for help. this is one of those guys, a ukrainian truck driver turned civilian soldier. >> translator: first of all, we felt a big responsibility. we knew we should go there because the man needed our help. he was still alive. >> reporter: he's the commander of a ragtag team of civilians who took up arms to fight for ukraine, and tried to save the men. when the guard called them, he
5:08 am
explained what transpired with the soldiers. he said the soldiers asked who they were and asked for cigarettes, then let them go, before shooting them in the back. when his men finally got to leonid, he had lost massive amounts of blood. >> one man from our group went there and the guy was still alive. he gave him bandages, tried to perform first aid, but the russians started shooting. >> reporter: they tried to fight back, but were unsuccessful. they didn't have the firepower to save their countrymen. have you seen the video? >> translator: i can't watch it now. i will save it to the cloud and leave it for my grandchildren and children. they should know about this crime and always remember who our neighbors are. >> reporter: her neighbors to the north, the russian soldiers, showed just how callous they are, drink, toasting one another and looting the place, minutes after slaying the two men. what were the last words you remember he said to you?
5:09 am
>> translator: bye-bye, kisses, say hello to your boys. >> reporter: her boys will be left with a terrible lasting memory, the death of their grandfather, now being investigated as a war crime by prosecutors. and there is a couple of things that really stood out beyond the horrific video of these men being shot from behind, one was the sheer unprofessional activity of the soldiers afterwards, where you see them drinking, see them, you know, giving each other cheers. and also with the daughter, yulia, who told us she was wondering whether she should even talk about this, because it doesn't help her father, but her mother forced her, told her she must talk about this to show what these men did to her dad, to avenge him. brianna? >> and it is important for history and we're seeing that happen right before our eyes with all of this closed-circuit ksks.
5:10 am
it television. sara, what a story, thank you so much for sharing it with us. >> joining us nauow retired arm general steve anderson. your reaction to the video we just saw, unarmed ukrainian civilians shot in the back by russian soldiers. >> well, thank you, john. i'm like everyone else, i'm absolutely disgusted by seeing that. it shows to me a complete and total breakdown in leadership. that's one of the reasons that the russians are doing so poorly. they cannot overcome the will of the ukrainian people, they're losing logistics war, and their leadership is poor. and we're seeing this. now, american armies, nato armies have noncommissioned officers. these are people that are down there with the troops making sure that things like this don't happen. keeping good order and discipline is a great fundamental of any effective army. and to allow things like this to happen are terrible. it is just another indicator of the poor leadership, the poor morale, and the state of play in
5:11 am
the russian army where they indiscriminately shoot civilians in the back. >> maybe the moral fiber there. i want to ask you, general, if you can pull up the map of nato so people can see here, a major development overnight. the leaders of finland, which shares an 800 mile border with russia, saying they support immediate -- immediately joining nato. now, finland has been definitionally neutral since world war ii. there was a word, the finlandization of a country means to make it neutral. that's what they did. what was significant of finland now joining nato be? >> it is hugely significant, john. so would sweden. it shows how politically vladimir putin is so tragically miscalculated what was going on. and now that we have seen sweden and finland step up, it shows that nato alliance is growing stronger, not weaker. and he's completely failed his objective. i would submit to you, we're heading back to a cold war, i
5:12 am
think. i think there will be a stalemate in the ukraine. get ready for cold war ii. and i think what that means to americans is we need to start thinking about three things. we need to think about forward stationing our bases, okay. just like in the days back in the -- in germany, we had 400,000 americans stationed over there. now we're down to 100,000. we need to put them out here, in the balkans, maybe finland. we need to station americans, not just rotate troops, but station americans, show our commitment to that nation, by putting people -- boots on the ground. the next thing we need to do, we need to have four position stocks. we used to have 5,000 tanks here in germany. we're down to zero now. we need to put stocks, forward position, over there in eastern europe, to prevent some kind of a threat. the third thing we need to do is do large scale mobilization exercises, like we used to do prior to the cold war ending. and at one time, 1988, we put 124,000 american soldiers on the
5:13 am
ground in germany, conducting what we called reforger exercises, return of forces to germany. we need large scale mobilization exercises once again in europe. >> it is interesting to see vladimir putin could end up with troops inside of st. petersburg. he said he invaded ukraine in part because ukraine wanted to join nato. nato was not about to accept ukraine. finland could get in quickly and he could get the exact opposite of what he wanted there. the major developments in the eastern part of ukraine right now, the ukrainian military admitting that the russians had made some gains in donbas, and have troops right on the border now with luhansk. what success do you think the russians are having there? >> well, they're using artillery to blow the hell out of everything in their way. that's their only play. but they're really failing. they, once again, their strategy is flawed in that they're devoting too many resources to smaller salients and not concentrated in one area. and we already have seen
5:14 am
significant counterattacks up here by the ukrainians. they are now all the way up to the edge of the border now, in russia, and they're able to fire artillery into belgorod. that's huge. but they distributed their forces down here, up here they took out, of course, ukrainians take out the pontoon bridges the other day, knocked them out, now you got a couple of battalion task forces that are essentially stranded over there. here in izyum, they're trying to push through this town of kramatorsk, but they have been unable to do that because of this counteroffensive which has forced them to reposition back here. i mean, i know that the activity in luhansk is serious. that's really the only russian play. but i think the ukrainians will continue to carry the day because they have a very effective active mobile defense. they have superior technology. and they have the will to fight that the russians can't seem to break. >> they maintain the mobility, they're making things very difficult for the russians.
5:15 am
general steven anderson, a pleasure to have you, thank you. >> thank you. in moments, a new indicator of how the economy is doing as president biden warns inflation is going to, quote, scare the hell out of voters. plus, a desperate mother joins us live as america's shortage of baby formula gets worse. what she is being forced to do. and why a crowd of good samaritans risk their lives in a busy intersection in this incredible new video.

our babies literally do not have the formula that they need to survive. >> unfortunately for, like, me, i can't breast-feed my kids. i depend a lot on formula. or my kid can't eat. >> it is terrifying. it is terrifying when that's the only true source of nutrition your baby gets, because it gets to the point where you go to the store and you just cry. >> it is a fear echoed by parents from coast to coast. the nationwide baby formula shortage is worsening and abbott nutrition says it could now be six to eight weeks before the in demand food is back on store shelves. but that's only once u.s. regulators allow them to restart production, which then could tack more time on to this dilemma. families now going to great lengths to keep formula in their homes. joining me now is a mom who is searching for formula for her two young children, with special
5:20 am
dietary needs, doris browning. doris, thank you for being with us. tell us a little bit about your situation, you have two small children, and you can't switch formulas on them. tell us why. >> no, i cannot switch formula. i have a 21-month-old daughter named tokyo, and i have a 10-month-old daughter named octavia. octavia was born with a rare genetic disorder and has all sorts of different, you know, disabilities associated with it. including a dairy allergy. so does tokyo. all dairy proteins, like, whey, gum, so finding a formula that works for her, i have to jump through hoops with gi specialists and nutritionists and pediatrician, et cetera, et cetera. >> so if they have a formula that has dairy, protein or any of that stuff in it, especially
5:21 am
your one with the worst condition, what happens? what are the symptoms? >> oh, she starts -- she has a very scary reaction. she will start vomiting blood, excreting blood in her feces, breathing issues, and she has to be put on oxygen and have her stomach pumped and honestly the worst, the worst, the absolute worst. >> i can't even imagine. so how much formula do you have? how long will it last you right now and what have you been doing to try to get formula? >> so back when the recall happened, we were on elacare infant and ela junior. we didn't have an option. we tried all the hyperallergenic formulas, all of them, and elacare is the only one that worked for both of them and their gi issues. right now i have about four cans
5:22 am
of the elacare recalled that i've been using because i can't find any on amazon. the doctors can't give me anything because the hospitals don't have supply, and the medical supply company doesn't even have an estimated date of when they can get any in stock. >> so you're using the recalled formula? >> absolutely. and i'm running the risk of her, you know, getting the bacterial infection, the salmonella, possibly just giving her expired formula, and it is very scary, but it is either i give her something to eat and she possibly gets sick or i don't give her anything to eat and, you know, she gets sick. >> yeah. >> she's a baby. >> how long will that last you, darice, four cans, how long will that go? >> typically for her, a can might last two and a half, three days, if i stretch it. so we're looking at maybe two
5:23 am
weeks. two to three. two and a half, about. >> that's not -- that's not going to get you, right, to where we're talking about. it is several weeks just for production. when you hear that, what do you think? >> i start crying. i get really -- i get really emotional because as a young mom, as a mom in general, it is my job to provide for my children. and when i can't even provide the fundamentals and the most necessary items for them, i feel like i'm not doing my job. there is nothing i can do, there is nothing else can do currently for me, you know? >> so what is that -- i wonder -- we heard that price gouging is happening. you're a young mom. you're a marine spouse. can you spend a bunch of money to get formula that you need for your kiddos? >> i'm not even going to elaborate on the pay that the military sets out for their
5:24 am
active duties. we don't make a bunch of money. we don't -- we don't have this plethora of funds to spend on money. although we do have medical insurance, we have deductibles, co-pays, catastrophic caps, and this type of formula that my girls are on aren't even in the stores. i can't just go to walmart and find an alternative that easy. let alone find an alternative that is even in stock in the store or online. >> well, darice, i wish i had some more answers for you. it is, you know, it is heart breaking to hear what you and so many other moms are going through. we're going to keep covering this story and see hopefully that there is a resolution soon that maybe can help folks out who are in your situation, but thank you for sharing with us your story today. >> thank you. and i just hope that parents don't have to make -- >> sorry, go back, darice, you were saying what? >> i hope that parents don't have to make the same -- the
5:25 am
same decisions that we have made to take her to the er and have her stomach pumped and have her fed through a tube, with concoctions that these nutritionists are making up, you know, and it is -- it is scary to watch. it is scary to watch my child just sit in a hospital bed with tubes all over her, just to be fed. >> yeah, you shouldn't have to make that decision. nor should any parent. darice, thank you so much for talking with us. >> of course. so this just in this morning, two republican governors urging the attorney general to do more to protect supreme court justices. that includes banning some demonstrations. plus, ashley judd revealing more about what happened to her mother, country music legend naomi judd. the fast way to bring it up to speed... scotts turf builder rapid grass. it grows t two times faster than seed alone for full, green grass. everything else e just seems... slow.

5:30 am
supreme court justices. they also asked for a federal statute that would ban protesting meant to influence judicial actions. this morning, women from princeton university's class of 1972 have penned an open letter to fellow alum justice samuel alito expressing their displeasure and protest over the draft opinion that seeks to overturn roe v. wade. in the letter published in the university student newspaper they write, we ask our classmates and the community of princeton to protest the logic that ties us to a constitutional originalism which resists any movement toward justice, but rather moves us backwards. joined now by susan squire, who knew justice alito from their time at princeton and organized the letter, now at penn state university. professor, thank you for being with us. why do you think it was important to put this letter together? >> well, you know, it was a very fast decision based on waking up in the morning and reading the
5:31 am
document i had been planning to go back to princeton, but when i saw the scotus leak, and i started reading the document, i felt it couldn't be just business as usual. we had to respond in some way. so i wrote a number of the women, i was going to see at princeton and said, can we do something, can we get together? i drafted the letter on google docs and we circulated it to as many women in the class as we could. it is not that we're doing this because we hope it will change things. i don't know. wouldn't that be lovely? i don't know, maybe i'm not -- i'm not that naive, there is a time when you just have to speak out. and those of us who went to princeton have a privilege of having gone there, we can get listened to. we have to speak for the women who cannot get listened to, the women who are going to be massively impacted, i hate that word, by this horrible new decision. so that was what we were thinking about. >> professor, it strikes me you
5:32 am
were a graduate in 1972, roe was 1973, you're very much part of a generation of women whose lives were changed by roe. >> absolutely right. yes. i mean, in fact, when i wrote to my colleague, my friend at princeton, i said it feels like this is the '70s all over again, here we are, just one year from 50 years since roe was passed. and why are we still fighting? why are we still dealing with this? so we really have benefited by the opportunities that roe gave us. we could go to college, we could go to graduate school, our lives weren't going to be massively impacted by it. it felt like we should do something and then when i read the document, i read all 98 pages of it, and mind you i'm trained as a scholar of literature and medicine, and i look at nuance, and when i saw that he had smuggled into the document the wording from the
5:33 am
mississippi gestational age act, which as i understand it i'm not a lawyer, isn't even law yet. and he's referring to unborn children rather than fetuses. i was just stunned. i mean, i have read a lot of medical history going back for doing literature and medicine, and his is like a greatest hits of misogyny. he doesn't consider the context. and this man was a historian at princeton. he was a double major in history and poli sci. but it is as if he doesn't believe history actually involves a record of things changing. instead it is history as let's go back to the salem witch trials. it makes me so angry. >> if you can, reflect on a moment about the direction you think this country is headed in, in 2022, versus 50 years ago, 1972. >> what i would say is we seem
5:34 am
to be heading into a religious state, it is going to be a state run by evangelical christians and instead of what we were doing in 1972, which is widening access to the good things this country has, for people of all races, for people who are gay, for people who are disabled, we seem to be rolling that right back and we're going to really restrict all those liberties that some of whom were guaranteed us in the constitution, some of them, like the era have yet to get into the constitution. but it was a really hopeful moment and now we seem to be going into a very dark period that doesn't feel hopeful. >> professor -- >> one hope, however, is that we were all -- the class -- my female classmates could come together on this and quite quickly we decided we needed to do something and basically our
5:35 am
feminism drew us together and our sense of obligation for the people who cannot speak, who do not get listened to and who are going to have feeling the brunt of this. >> professor susan squier, i appreciate your discussion. forgive my smile, i share your hatred of the word impacted. i appreciate the acknowledgement there, joining me in this war. appreciate it. >> yeah. good. this week's jobless claims just in this morning, we have a breakdown next. plus, a democratic lawmaker making an emotional speech about skyrocketing grocery bills, an issue she says even impacts her, a sitting congresswoman. it's s® refresh at subway®, and now they're refreshing their classics... with a classic!

all right, we're all watching the economic numbers so closely right now. and this week's jobless claims just came in. cnn chief business correspondent christine romans here with that. >> why are we watching them so closely? because this is a snapshot of what's happening in the american job market, and the trend here
5:40 am
incredibly important. look at the improvement here. these are first time jobless claims. 203,000 last week. that's up a few thousand, but meaningfully, this shows you that companies are very, very wary of trying to have layoffs. they don't want to have layoffs. these are few layoffs overall in the economy, because the other trend to show you is the jobless rate. this is a story of a job market that is strong, not enough workers. employers are hungry to find more workers, there is a war for talent, they're not in the business here of doing mass layoffs anymore as they were just a couple of years ago. it is the opposite. john, another piece of information we just received was the government's ppi report, producer price index. this is inflation at the factory level. so before it gets to the retailers and before it gets into your pocketbook, and these numbers here, month over month, from march to april, prices on the factory floor up 0.5%. that's in line with
5:41 am
expectations. and a little cooler than we have seen in recent months. and overall, 11% inflation rate for annual inflation rate at the factory level, that is not a record, but, john, it is still hot. that is still hot inflation. so this is up the pipeline. these are the kinds of numbers in the months ahead that will still get into your pocketbook. mark zandi, the chief economist at moodys, he basically says, look at it this way, you're paying on top of what you would assume 2% normal inflation, you're paying another maybe $350 a month for the same goods this year compared with last year because of inflation. so this is why this is issue number one for american families and for this white house. >> that's real money. that really is. christine romans, thank you so much. katie porter gave an emotional speech to her fellow democrats about skyrocketing grocery prices and how it affected her and her family. congresswoman said there is a lot of shame around having to live on a budget or having to put food back at a grocery store

and i'm not ashamed. i'm doing the very best i can to make the choices financially for my family. she went on to say, it seemed like first time the personal toll of high consumer prices had sunk in for some lawmakers in the room. joining us now is congressional reporter at politico, sarah ferris, who reported on this meeting. this is really fascinating because it goes to the heart of how in touch these lawmakers are with what's going on out in the country. tell us what happened at this meeting and what she said to them. >> sure. so what the congresswoman said, her message to caucus was, look, i'm experiencing inflation myself, my family has been for months, this is an issue that is top of mind for us. she has three kids. she's a single mom. she has to maintain two residence in expensive parts of the country. she said i have to put food back sometimes at the grocery store and tell my kids no. she talked to me about bacon that was $9.99 a pound, $7 blueberries, she's going to wait for those to be in season. she said this is just changed the way that me and my family have shopped.
5:43 am
this is something that the american public has been dealing with for over a year. and her message at the caucus was we need to be talking about these issues in ways that show we understand these anxieties. >> and so what was it like when she told them about that, they seem -- some of them seemed surprised, her colleagues? >> sure what she told me afterwards was that some members who might not do their own grocery shopping, who might not be the ones who are directly having to tell their kids no in the store, whether it is their spouse who does the shopping or someone else, she said it just didn't seem like the toll had really sunk in with how hard this really has been for folks and how much the prices have gone up. and she had one colleague who pulled her aside and said, well, we're not really seeing this in the polls meaning the cost of food specifically. of course inflation has been in the polls. and so what porter said that was a wake-up moment for her. she said she hopes this is an animating moment for the caucus to learn, we have to be talking, like real people, we are real people, this is part of the
5:44 am
problem that democrats have had for a long time. this is something they really need to improve on and in terms of communication. >> what did she think when she heard them say we're not seeing this in the polls? is she thinking, well, of course people are feeling this and this is going to impact them? >> sure. she said maybe you don't know what to ask. who are the people writing the polls? these are folks who are pretty well off, they're living in a bubble, and meanwhile folks who are actually going to the grocery store seeing the price goes up and she said it has been a fascination with gas prices, of course. that's an easy number, you see it on every site, every corner. food prices are different. you have to be paying attention to how things are going up and nowing w knowing what is the price of milk. it is famous question to see if a politician can answer. she said we need to be able to do that. >> when your grocery bill is finite, you know what you can fit in that thing. sarah ferris, great reporting, thank you for sharing it with us. flames scorching hundreds of acres in orange county, california. we're live on the ground.

there, natasha. >> reporter: we're in coronado point, where you can see this house is just one of the many that were burned out, the doorway is still on fire here. there are hot spots just like that throughout the neighborhood. the fire crews talked about how the embers really jumped from palm tree to palm tree, into the attics and so they're very careful right now in trying to stamp those out and look at this neighbor right here. another example of a house completely burned to the ground. there are still hot spots, some flames there. and if you look further down, in this neighborhood, their neighbor has a burned out car. also the home completely destroyed. and yet at the same time there are homes across the street like this one, completely untouched. and that's pretty common to see in fires like this, where the embers may have jumped in a random pattern. now, this started as a very small fire, near a water treatment facility, still unclear exactly how or why it
5:53 am
began, but the fire crews said in a press conference last night that the winds just everyday winds that they have here now that have become extremely regular in this area have picked up those flames and carried them very quickly up a steep hill. and that's how this spread. right now the last update that we saw from the fire authority on twitter was about six hours ago saying this is about 195 acres, and they plan another press conference later this morning to update this. the good news is we're hearing of no injuries right now. but at least 20 structures like this one burned to the ground. brianna? >> this is quite a residential area there, natasha. but it is also an area that surrounds a canyon, with so much brush and flammable material in it. >> reporter: that's right. and that steep hill that i was referencing, the fire chief said last night that that is a hill
