be wants to see. closed businesses and all of that on a holiday weekend. no one knows when this place will reopen. >> the immediate future what will happen in south lake tahoe -- >> i want clear air. >> it all depends on the surrounding mount with the fire smolders and burns britain's lists as calfire takes nothing for granted. >> this is not over. it is not the beginning of the end but it is the end of the beginning. >> they need plenty of work ahead but we found optimism as forest service crews continue to clear trees. >> seems like the fire is running out of fuel in some areas but not elsewhere especially in the heavy backcountry.
>> this is the kind of work that has firefighters frustrated. po pp ke this... we are seeing orders of a mile in any direction your >> all leading to the question of when lake tahoe in this region might open up again to 50,000 evacuees first, they will need to stamp out the hotspots, fell trees and check power and utilities. >> even if the behavior dies down and the area is deemed safe, they are going to look at everything around it. >> so even though firefighters described this as a day for mop up and even if trends look good, the caldor fire is not yet over. >> that is where we stand up-to-the-minute on day 20 of the fire.
i asked one of those evacuees a little while ago how it has been dealing with all of this and if it has been frustrating. he said it makes no point to be frustrated, that just makes a bad situation worse. pretty good advice. >> last we heard him a there were 212,000 acres burned. actual numbers contained at 29%. any reason for optimism when you look closely at those numbers? >> i think you need to look inside the numbers and that really does tell the story less than 3000 acres of growth burned in less than three of those days. 3000 acres a day, compare that with before that. it means we are getting into the right side of this. >> may have noticed we have a qr code on the bottom left of your screen so if you use your on
camera to scan, it'll take you to our abc seven wildfire tracker and you can get details on the major fires that are burning and we will show you again in a few minutes. for more joined by assistant chief jamie. we hear you are cautiously optimistic so explain to me what that means. that we are close to containment or the spread is slowing or there will soon be a need for a declaration? -- eight activation? -- an evacuation? >> you hit the nail on the head. cautiously optimistic is the way to describe it. the mentor progress to be contained is such a huge jump from what we were seeing in days prior. those first 18 days were just
treacherous for our firefighters. the flames were so high, the embers were three quarters of a mile downwind. we e high and gusty winds and extremely low relative humidity that was in the single digits and what we are seeing now is night get a little cooler and we are raising the relative humidity. we are not yet into the teens but it is getting higher and there is some coolness in the air and that relative humidity is climbing. most important thing is we don't have wind so we are using mother nature to our advantage. we do still have some active fires in some spots but we have firefighters doing a direct attack. >> what is your biggest challenge right now? >> our biggest challenge is maintaining vigilance, staying safe. when we have had fires run
through areas like this, we have hazardous trees that come down because this is about the time in the fire where the trees will start coming down so those firefighters are out there and working very aggressively around the structures that were impacted. they were hydraulic in the dust and getting all of that that is burnt and getting moisture in their in getting very saturated. getting all of the dead materials that may catch fire and making sure not a single ember or spark is going to cause that to reignite and god for bid we have those winds kickoff. >> what are your expectations over the weekend? >> my hope is that the weather stays the way it is and that is our expectation. when we put teams together to combat a fire, we have specialists in conjunction with our operations chief and they create the direction for the fight that are incident
commanders are going to ensue and it really is a battle. we get certain m get certain m and we come out and we do just that. i'm hoping that in the next couple of days we are going to see a lot of mop up happening. something people don't realize is we plumb the entire circumference of this fire and get lines everywhere to make sure it is well drenched in water. and in those areas with steep terrain that we cannot get to, that's where you will see helicopters, laying that down to make sure there is no way is going to jump a break and today we saw the supers come in. diving into south lake tahoe and driving large volumes of water. in areas where we still have fire that is actively burning their handlers can't actively get into and put them out. >> you're describing what sounds
like a monumental task. you have already done so much. thank you so much for your time over the weekend, i hope the weather cooperates as we move forward. >> in the meantime, the dixie fire to grow in northern california. now, the u.s. military is stepping in. >> 200 active-duty military that are at the dixie fire to give ourselves some additional capacity or helping to do some of that mop up work. >> those troops will help free up firefighters at the active fronts of the dixie fire, the second-largest largest in california history and nearly 900,000 acres burned. ask smoke is inspected to impacted the bay area through labor day and this is what it looked like earlier. >> you can see that thick haze in the sky and spencer joins us with more.
>> here's a look at the air body. we have moderate air quality all around the bay area and our sea breeze is weakening a bit as the marine layer has diminished a bit. we are not likely to see much of an improvement in air quality here over the next couple of days because that sort of hot and has weakened the sea breeze. just a bit. it was moderate yesterday and is now down for people with research or illnesses and whatnot. here's a look at weather conditions near the fire. the wind is very calm right now so there is no wind with a those fires in terms air quality, has not been helpful because with the lighter wind, the air has becoming that has been becoming more stagnant. hopefully, the wind will not have a detrimental effect on the
firefighting effort. >> once again, you contract the air quality on the wildfires on the abc 7 tracker. all you have to do is grab your phone and scanned the code with your camera on the phone. that will take you right to the tracker and we will show to you again on abc 7 is five. -- abc 7. >> napa valley music festival is back after being canceled by code in 2020. this year, there are changes and new rules. we are live in napa with details. >>'s been a long time since we heard music coming from the expo here but it is happening. 40,000 people are expected each day with new covid protocols in place but some last-minute headliner cancellations have left some kind of disappointed.
