6:04 pm
mean it. >> reporter: really? a week ago this tent city at justin herman plaza was half the side, today more tents are on the way. >> we have 300 people here tonight. i can see that doubling. i could see that tripling. >> reporter: while police, fire and health department official have been keeping an eye on things, they have been keeping a distance as well as more and more tents keep popping up. >> we have had the fire marshal come out and inspect this every morning really positive responses. sometimes constructive feedback. we have had the police chief here just this morning at 8 a.m. we have had the park district come out. >> reporter: the cops, however, have been told to hold off and not try to forcibly evict campers as they did two weeks ago partly because a confrontation may bring more campers to the park. over in san francisco, city hall was mum today, none of the official we spoke with whether they be from rec and park or police or even the mayor's office was willing to go on camera saying only that they
6:05 pm
were monitoring the situation and the mayor was sticking by his position. in oakland fire inspectors started ordering the shutdown of cooking fires in that "occupy" protests. how long do they have to turn it off, get it out of here? >> we're working on that right now. >> reporter: late this afternoon, "occupy oakland" which you just saw there said they were expecting the oakland police to possibly make a move late tonight and clean out one of the encampments in the city. put in calls to oakland officials. no word back but stay tuned to cbs 5 tonight at 11. we'll have an update. >> phil, speaking of oakland, we are hearing a group has filed a petition to recall jean quan. what do you know about that? >> reporter: well, it's ironic. some of her old-time supporters from way back, but yes a group of 71 has filed a petition to recall the mayor, who now has just got elected and is facing criticism over her handling of public safety in part because of the layoff of cops because
6:06 pm
