5:31 am
it might be tough to make out this morning because it is still kind of dark out, but this entire hillside over these homes is where the fire was throughout the entire morning. it still might be hard to see but from what i can tell you, it's burnt, it's black, it's dark. it is surprising just how close it got to some of these homes. some of the video that i saw throughout the morning was pretty astonishing. right now, crews are still finishing up putting out the fire that is currently in a canyon, according to some residents. there is still a little bit of smoke coming from that canyon, but does not seem to be near any homes. take a look at the video, really astonishing scenes, bright, high flames close to some of these homes and threatened a lot of people and a lot of homes. they had to evacuate. many went to a nearby safeway, where they were told to gather while they waited for crews to put out the fire that was getting so close to their backyards. some crews, i believe, told
5:32 am
residents they are allowed back into their homes. i think some did say they are going back home. others, i was told, still have to wait to get a clearance from the fire department. those are probably the homes near that canyon up the street from where we are. according to some of the residents, the one who i spoke to did tell me it was a really eye-opening scene this morning. >> like an inferno, just like when you hear people like in napa and stuff, they said it was on the ridgeline. all of this was open space behind these houses and it was just engulfed in flames. >> and what is remarkable about everything is kind of how close these flames got to these backyards. just seeing how dark the hills are and how close they got to the backyards of these homes tells me just how crazy big the fire was and how crazy close it got to these backyards. luckily, no one i believe at this time got hurt or any homes got destroyed. over down the street might be a
5:33 am
little hard to see, but over down the street, there is still a little bit of smoke billowing from that canyon. it has gotten lower and lower throughout the morning. it does not seem to be close to any homes. as i mentioned, does not appear to be close to any residents or anybody is hurt at this time. that is the positive news, that residents are now going back inside their homes. the fire seems to be mostly contained and put out, an promising sense. from what you guys saw in the video, was really bright. >> thank you. we have been updating you on this breaking news. shortly after those evacuations. if you want to get breaking news when it happens, download the abc 7 bay area news app. >> the dubs capturing their fourth nba championship in just eight years. >> we will get to the and a moment, but first, we want to look at your forecast. >> good morning.
