behind me that blackened squo h scorched hillside the fire came up to there but they blocked it along croak road. it's a close call to homes. take a look at sky 7. a huge plume of smoke visible throughout the east bay and tri-valley area. the wind carried that smoke up and blew it eastward for a time that smoke as you said impacted drivers on interstate 580 at fallon road where the outlet malls located. that fire went to three alarms, 20 engines racing here. cal fire sending out four tankers with retardant and a helicopter with water. the fire mushroomed to 500 acres in about 30 minutes but that aggressive attack worked despite the challenges. >> with the winds, fire season, the vegetation is all dry. vegetation grew much taller so once the fire gets going, it has a lot more fuel to
builds momentum and difficult to stop the fires once they get momentum. >> reporter: alameda fire says it's remarkable they got full containment within one hour, successfully protecting nearby neighborhoods and cul-de-sacs that border this wild ranch land. they used three dozers to clear a fire break as nearby residents watched ten homes were evacuated as a precaution. >> inside the smoke was thick and when you see black where there is usually golden rolling hills, that's always really worrisome and then you also wonder how did it start? >> looking at how it started. that is being investigated by both cal fire and alameda fire. this is an area called canyon. people on the land, one person stopped and told me that they have seen a tent or perhaps a
homeless encampment out on some of this ranch property. lots of possibilities to investigate. the good news is they got in here. they got here quickly and they put out that fire. reporting from dublin i'm leslie brinkley. >> thank you. we watched a boeing 737 drop retardant on the fire. it took several seconds to empty the tank. this plane can carry 4,000 gallons of retardant or water in two tanks. we see how well it works. look at this section. you can clearly see an area that looks red. that's on the left side of your screen. it's where retardant had been dropped and there are flames around it, that part is burning. >> some tenants are allowed back to check on artwork and belongings after a huge fire destroyed about one-third of that building this morning. eric thomas live at the moxey
warehouse with more. eric? >> reporter: larry, the best news is nobody was injured and there were people inside the building at the time of the fire. let's show you the 80-year-old third of the moxey warehouse all but destroyed. you see the ceiling collapsed and we see firefighters every once in awhile spraying hot spots. there are homes you can't see from here but very close nearby and that posed a problem for both residents and firefighters. the flames burned so hot and so high initially that the only thing some neighbors could think to do was run. >> we took the children out. the neighbor took her children out. everybody evacuated their houses. >> reporter: cindy and husband richard live across the street from the moxey. he's the building superintendent too overwhelmed to speak on camera but his wife says he sprang into action after a phone call telling him the place was on fire. >> my husband runs across the street and around to the front of the building no shoes on.
he runs in there and hollers for everyone to get out because it's on fire. >> reporter: the fire went to three alarms and chewed through the roof and building. some random things survived. this video game constole. tanks of propane could have exploded but didn't. micah was working inside and initially didn't know anything was wrong. >> i didn't know. i was oblivious. i aschooled it was another house fire in the neighborhood and kept working. had the music blasting. >> finally he noticed his cell phone going off and the caller told him to get out. the fire department said as scary as this worked, nobody was hurt but of the three dozen businesses inside, seven were last. officials say it doesn't appear anyone was living inside this collective but noelle who represents the fruit vail district says the artist and business owners had permits to operate but the building owner had not brought it up closed. >> we're requiring manufacturing
goods including dry speck and others, you have to have a sprinkler system. you have to go through an inspection. >> reporter: and he says they don't have sprinklers in there which could result in citations for the business owner. we'll have to see just how that comes along. now some of the folks were let back inside the two-thirds that weren't badly damaged here but not allowed to do any work or stay on the premises to salvage anything. we'll have to see when or if that portion of the building will be reopen to business. live in oakland, eric thomas, aa be, c 7 ne bc 7 news. >> thank you. if you saw the smoke you knew what fire was coming from and you could watch it live online. download the abc 7 news app to get alerts and customize the app for topics and places you're especially interested in. happening now, tens of thousands of jazz fans are in the south bay for the summer fest.

surprise. >> we're going to park city for christmas. >> reporter: they agreed to pay the $9,000 difference in the rate so the families can say in the townhouse after all. air b anb says we drive to prove support and work to ensure technical errors remain rare. we hope he and his family enjoy their vacation. >> i can't thank you enough. >> here is a question, are businesses required to honor a price listed by mistake? no, not if it's an honest mistake. i'd like to really thank air bnb for stepping up. it brought two families a lot of holiday joy and did not have to do that. i want to hear from you. the 7 on your side hot line is up from 10:00 to 2:00. 415-954-81 51 and reach me on my facebook page. i figure i'll swing by for a day or two. >> why not? >> i'm sure you're welcome. you got air bnb to come up with

thunder. we'll certainly get a few clouds with overnight lows in the low to mid 60s and a bright sky although a little sprinkle here or there may occur. highs will range from mid 60s to the costa low and mid 80s inland and then look at the warmup coming our way beginning sunday. so we have half a weekend cooler than average and the other half warmer than average. mid-90s sunday and mid 80 around the bay shoreline and temperatures continue climbing on monday and not so much different on tuesday. still hot inland. the temperatures will or the heat will ease on wednesday and temperatures will settle back into a more typical or seasonal range. it will be a great weekend. don't let cooler than average tomorrow bother you. >> thanks, spencer. >> all right. in sports, antonio brown. he's not going to play for the raiders unless he gets one concession. wait until you hear this. the latest on a new issue
his whole career but it's a t - ten-year-old sale and the nfl wants newer safer designs. he was on a two-hour call with an arbitrator arguing his case. he doesn't like the way the helmets fit and fears it interferes with his vision. the decision ais expected sometime next week. he had issues in pittsburgh but felt his talent was worth the risk. safe to say the coach had no idea he would be dealing with frostbite and helmet controversies before the raiders played one game. they open the preseason tomorrow night at the coliseum against former cal star jared goff and the rams. they have been joint practices all week long and goff says the practices are more valuable than the preseason games. >> whenever you get against a good time, intensity was high.
i said before the joint practices were fun and gives us a chance to get a lot of goodwo. one of those. >> the niners open up the preseason against the cowboys and considering all the niner injuries, their preseason roster is more like a who isn't rather than who is who. jimmy garoppolo. feels good, looks good in practice but not been in a game since week three of last season. >> whatever they are willing to let me play, whatever the coach come up with, i trust their playing. haven't done me wrong yet. >> i expect them and nothing is mapped out in stone. we take it day by day but something you're always thinking about and definitely playing to going 2-3. >> on to baseball, the a's continue the road trip.
