6:01 pm
reporting from paradise, just a few miles up the road. things got a little too hairy in terms of the wind, so we thought we would move here down the road. before we left, we can show you video that i shot, it's called a fire double. i tweeted it just a short time ago. i mean, this was incredible, just watching this, just a small sign of the power of the ferocity, the destructiveness of the fire. one after another, homes in paradise are burning. a scene is dark and horrific as any we've seen, as another raging inferno wipes out another community. >> my friends moved from southern california, their backya backyard, they've been working on it and they lost it all. >> reporter: some residents stayed behind to try to save their home or failing that, one
6:02 pm
of their neighbor's. >> it was like nothing on the oher side. and it started going down towards the skyway. and then it just whipped around and came back and just -- it was scary. i've been in a few fires, and this was scary. >> it's tough, it's tough. i help everybody, that's my nature. i have two shattered ankles, and i still help. >> reporter: driven by winds in excess of 50 miles per hour, the campfire went to more than 18,000 acres, forcing the evacuation of entire towns, including paradise just north of chico. these horses were set free but left behind to find their own way out. both lanes were converted to the outgoing direction to accommodate all of those who evacuated. many could only grab their loved ones, pets and themselves. did you take anything >> barely us. >> you could hear explosions from gas tanks and stuff.
6:03 pm
you could hear -- we could feel one, too. >> how does it look now? >> pretty bleak. i tried calling the house and the machine didn't pick up. >> reporter: she was worried about her answering machine not answering. i think that's going to be a lot of people from that area who are going to find that their homes have been destroyed. we saw dozens of them ourselves. this school behind me is about four or five miles away. we've seen flames at different points, when the wind whips up, it looks like the flames are leaping hundreds of feet into the air. it does seem like the winds are picking up. finally among the heartbreaking scenes up there, we showed you those horses. we also saw pets, coyotes, other animals, running loose, you know, they've obviously had to be left behind by their owners. they're just trying to figure out how to get out of there. laura anthony, "abc7 news." >> tragic. thank you, laura.
6:04 pm
we'll turn to spencer christian, with a check on the conditions. red flag, air quality advisories and more, spencer. >> that's true. there's a tremendous amount of smoke right now. you can see it on live doppler 7. it looks like clouds, but it's a massive plume of smoke pushing through our area and offshore. let me give you a look at current weather conditions near the fire. temperatures down to 58 degrees, relative humidity still very low, only 11%. although the surface wind is not so strong, the gusts from the higher elevations are quite strong, up to 23 miles per hour and higher. red flag remains in effect for much of the bay area, especially the north bay mountains, santa cruz mountains, winds gusting 40 to 60 miles per hour. you can see just how thick the smoke is, even though it's dark right now, looking down onto san
6:05 pm
francisco, and despite the air qualitiedy ed advisory issued f tomorrow, we expect it to be moderate for tomorrow. it certainly is declining. >> spencer, thank you for that update. smoke from the fire drifted into the bay area today. our network of tower cameras captured a lot of hazy skies from the north bay to the east bay. >> you could see it and smell it. our reporter continues our live team coverage from oakland where the smoky smell is intense and the fire danger is high. >> reporter: just before we interviewed oakland's deputy fire chief, he learned at some points that winds clocked in at 50 miles per hour. i want you to check out the red flag here outside of the firestation. it's dangling now, but whipping in the wind earlier, and the community is not totally in the clear here yet. bumper to but eer to bumper tra
6:06 pm
many feared during a red flag warning. >> people need to be prepared. 91 hill fire is fresh in our mind. >> reporter: that's what was running through his mind as they rushed to grab hoses. >> there was smoke billowing all over across the road. >> reporter: fast-moving winds pulled the grass fire up this hill, threatening the community. >> when you live up in the hills with the dry vegetation, it's scary sometimes. >> reporter: crews were able to get things under control, but then embers blue into th s blew. >> this is a true red flag event we're having. >> reporter: her husband spotted the flames. >> i wish all our neighbors would make sure that the grasses were cleared out, the dead trees were removed. >> reporter: she said this home is used as a rental. >> we know when we're in a

6:09 pm
cities in america. it is extremely tight knit, comprised of only about 130,000 people. even though that vigil inside city hall is under way, if you can take a look behind me, you can s hundreds of people still gathered in various prayer and support groups, holding hands and also holding signs, saying thousand oaks strong. moments ago, i met a woman named karen, and she provided me the photo. this is her friend, shawn adler. he recently opened his own coffee shop. he was the bouncer last night at the club. he was one of the victims. now, even though many people do not know shawn, but are in attendance at this vigil tonight, they stopped me and they said they wanted to share with the community what thousand oaks is all about. >> the joke that we live in a bubble, but you can see where it bursts, we connect and we --
6:10 pm
it's been my home since i can remember. and i'm so grateful we live in this type of community that holds each other up when we are falling apart. >> reporter: it's hard not to tear up yourself listening to her and how much she cares about her community. there are more vigils planned throughout the next day or two. we plan to go inside here at city hall. we'll bring you the latest of what happens later on, on "abc7 news" a 9:00 and 11:00. back to you. >> thank you. elena housley is among the confirmed victims, she's a recent high school graduate. >> wayne freedman joins us live. >> reporter: it seems everyone knew her. i'm going to step out of the frame. there is another vigil going on here. her family owned a local store and everyone knew her, everyone
6:11 pm
liked her, everyone said she was a perfect kind of student. these are parents, these are friends, people who never imagined something like this could happen. in a county all too familiar and wary from mass murders, the news from southern california reopened wounds and cut deep. >> she is an incredible person. >> reporter: when rumors became fact that elena housley died last night, grief descended on napa, especially on the campus of vintage high school. she graduated in june, a model honor student and athlete, a member of student council, whose mother also teaches there. the principal sarah o'connor spoke to the school. >> i don't think this is something that people can make sense of. >> reporter: out of respect, we stay away from friends and fellow students. they wore their emotions on faces. >> i cannot believe this. i'm just shaking like a leaf. i cannot believe it. >> reporter: marsha taught elena piano beginning at 5 years old.

"our hearts are broken. she was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her, we're devastated her life was cut short." this was the first candle light vigil. there's another in an hour. this is not go fog go away any time soon. wayne freedman, "abc7 news."
6:13 pm

6:14 pm
6:15 pm

6:16 pm
sergeant, a young woman from napa, a recent college graduate and the bar's bouncer. >> the tragedy is another example how mass shootings are becoming more frequent and deadly and all of us are having to come to some difficult decisions. >> how can we protect ourselves, our children. dan noyes is here with some advice from the experts. >> dan, ama, just this past weekend, my teenage son was heading to an all-age concert in berkeley. i felt i had to remind him, check for the fire exits, have an escape plan. if a fight breaks out, a fire or even a shooting. that's our world now. >> you kind of freeze, it's like firecrackers. >> reporter: college night, shattered by gunfire, a mass sooting. the type of event for which the police chief trains teachers and supervisors.
6:17 pm
this is the session from february of this year. >> are you saying every time i go outside my door i have to be paranoid? i'm not saying that, but you need a plan. >> reporter: no matter where you go, know your exits and be prepared to run, hide, or as a last resort, fight if something terrible happens. >> it is a sad commentary in the world when you have to go up to your 3-year-old and say listen, if someone tries to kill you, this is what i want you to do. that's the world we live in. >> you heard the stories of heroism coming out of the shooting, how a few people saved many lives. >> my friend tried to help me get out of the window so we could get out. that's how we were able to get out, he broke the window. >> reporter: the experts say we should prepare ourselves mentally by doing the research. much of it is available online. >> when startled by a gunshot,
6:18 pm
it's natural to freeze. >> reporter: but freezing heaves you vulnerable according to this video published by the department of homeland security in august. it says most active shooter events last between 90 seconds and three minutes. so actions you take may make just as big a difference as those of law enforcement. >> if you are confronted by the shooter, you have to assume that your actions are all that stand between yourself, your colleagues, and grave harm. fight for your life. >> reporter: the chief tells us he's working on active shooter training for students to make age appropriate videos. this is now a conversation that we just can't avoid. >> no. >> so frightening. >> and none of us know how we'll react under the gun like this. we just don't know. >> it can happen any time, any place. >> and you may think you may do one thing, but not. >> exactly. let's turn back to our coverage of the campfire in
6:19 pm
butte county. videos of people escaping the flames are being posted. >> kristen sze has a look at a few of those images. >> reporter: i don't know how people are able to shoot video when their lives are in danger, but you have to see this one man's harrowing escape. take a close look. he woke up at a friend's house. he jumped in his pickup truck. he was hard to see. around him, are massive flames. look at that right there. did you see that? a tree branch crashed onto his hood and windshield. colton made it out through a meadow that's maintained just for people to gather in case of fires. i want you to look at this one. this is a family escaping paradi paradise, ironically the name.
6:20 pm
the panicked wife there. they too are okay. these videos give you a sense of just the unimaginable terror for the evacuees. >> so many gripping stories. smell smoke, you're being impacted if you have asthma,is can be exacerbated. young kids tend to breathe more than adults, so they'll breathe in more of the harmful air. and please don't burn your fireplaces while the air quality advisory is in effect. >> so let's get a check on the weather. >> spencer christian is tracking the conditions out there. >> we can see the smoke most of the day. here's a look at live doppler seven. what appears to be clouds here is the approaching smoke, the continuing approaching smoke

6:28 pm
6:29 pm
6:30 pm
now, live, breaking news. >> fast and terrifying. those words sum up the fury of a wildfire that's charred 26 square miles of butte county. you'll hear the voice of first responders while they race to save lives. listen. >> four people trapped in the basement. surrounded by fire, they're safe underneath, but they can't get out.
6:31 pm
>> we've got both sides of the road engulfed. >> the fire is starting to surround us. >> county units be advised, a woman in labor, she's in a beige honda pilot. she needs a deputy. >> you heard her say a woman in labor in need of help. at least two firefighters have been injured along with several civilians. the sheriff's department says it's received reports of fatalities. winds whipped flames since the campfire ignited about 12 hours ago and spread so quickly. >> let's get back live to laura anthony with the latest. she's been right there on the sidelines. laura. >> reporter: right non, if you recall where i was half hour ago standing right here, and the fire was way in the distance, probably several miles away. check out where it is now. it's right behind us actually. there are no structures back there. but this fire came right over
6:32 pm
this hill, and probably traveled about a half mile. it's headed predominantly west and south, driven by the high winds. it's incredible to see how quickly this has moved. it's moving towards highway 99, which was only a couple of miles away. so it will be interesting to see how that is handled once it gets there. the other thing is we would like to show you what it looked like up at paradise, right in paradise, just a short time ago. we saw a home after home burning with abandon. this wasn't a lot of wind up there when we first got there, so it seemed that things were somewhat contained. we saw residents who chose not to evacuate, which is a mandatory evacuate at this point, but there were still some people up there. they were trying to protect their own homes and maybe save some others. this was heartbreaking, because there were four or five horses who their owner let them loose,
6:33 pm
but couldn't put them in a trailer or get them out quickly enough, so we saw these horses going up and down across the road, trying to figure out how to get out of there. we saw dogs, coyotes. it was quite a scene up there, as the wind picked up, we decided to get out of there, as well. ky tell you in the last half hour or so, we've also seen a steady stream of emergency vehicles, sheriffs and fire department personnel making their way down this road, as well, on neil road toward highway 99. i don't know for certain, but i'm guessing they too are making a decision that it's unsafe for their personnel to be up there in paradise at this point. this fire is incredible. i've been to several fires, or many fires in my career, and to see the swiftness with which this is moving, the destruction, the black cloud that was hanging over this town as we were approaching the area, it's just

>> come out the door! >> terrifying. police believe the gunman took his own life. some of the victims have been identified as a sheriff sergeant, a young woman who grew up in napa, a youth baseball umpire, a recent college graduate and the bar's bouncer. >> our incoming governor gavin newsom has been a staunch advocate for gun control. >> and today, he spoke about the shooting and what we can expect from his administration once he's sworn in. >> here's leeann melendez. >> you can't go to a bar or a nightclub, or a church? >> reporter: he's never held back on gun violence. today he criticized lawmakers in washington for not doing enough when it comes to gun control. given his track record, we can
6:36 pm
speculate that he will have an aggressive agenda as the next governor. >> in the absence of that, california will lead. california will raise the bar. >> reporter: he led the message of proposition 63, a 2016 voter approved measure, which imposed background checks on ambition purchases. that goes into effect in january. but that proposition also calls for banning high capacity magazines, limiting them to ten rounds. that is being challenged in court. the gun used in the thousand oaks shooting at a high capacity magazine that could hold more than ten rounds. under governor jerry brown, california has led the nation when it comes to gun control. newsom is expected to be even more assertive. so when he was elected mayor of san francisco, that idea of same-sex marriages was not on his radar. but after listening to then president bush talk about preventing gay couples from getting married in 2004, newsom
6:37 pm
suddenly had a plan. now, will gun control be his next big endefer? who knows? but he said whatever it is, he will lean in aggressively. >> leeann, thank you. and head coach steve kerr is an advocate for gun control, as well. he was asked about the shooting before tonight's game. >> we're going to have a moment of silence tonight. we had one last week and will probably have one next week. it's the reality until we do something about it. so it's beyond sad. it's devastating. >> coach kerr has spoken out after past mass shootings. in 1984, his father was president of the american university in beirut was killed. >> and we are here to help you take action. at, we have put together resources to

the 20 years he played for the giants, it's just part of the story. >> reporter: gaylord perry say mccovey was quiet but meant what he said. >> even though he had a special pick-off play with me, with a man on first base, he would say, hey, they're getting too big a lead, dummy. >> reporter: he wanted to play like big mac. >> i didn't like him, but i wanted to be hike him. i started hitting whifle balls left-handed because i wanted to be like mccovey. >> reporter: he never played in this stadium, but as you know, just on the other side of that wall is mccovey cove. eric thomas, "abc7 news." >> mccovey cove, such a fitting tribute to a great man in our community. >> this is a really touching and emotional day. there's that realization that comes over you when you see the

pictures and you realize you're not going to see willie mccovey in this ballpark again. it was a touching scene when you had all the willie mac awardawad winners. you see old-time giants going back to dave trabeki and the w nonew comers like buster posey and next year they'll give out the award without mac. but you can see the love and admi ed admiration that everybody has. rest of sports is coming up. the warriors taking on one of the rising powers in the east, and

6:55 pm
