6:01 am
between vernon and waller avenues there. we have a live picture here as they continue to battle that fire on farwell drive. a live look at the morgan fire burning near mount diablo. this is from our dublin camera. the fire is active and covering a wide area. in fact, since last night, the fire has nearly doubled to 1500 acres. and we have live team coverage of that fire this morning. brian hackney is keeping an eye on the weather conditions in the area. elizabeth wenger is at the evacuation center in clayton. but we begin with cate caugiran, who just spoke to fire officials. cate, what's the latest. >> reporter: michelle, we understand the first air tankers will be going up in the next couple of hours because the fire right now is growing towards the summit. we can actually see it peaking right now. maybe it's just a glow but we've seen flares come up over the mountain just basically in waves as it comes up and down now. this morning, more families are waking up unsure of the safeties of their homes.
6:02 am
the -- the safety of their homes. the sheriff says 23 more homes were evacuated making it 100 homes in total. the fire is up to 1500, a of the cal fire says it's 10% contained with one minor injury to a firefighter. cal fire will be bringing in more firefighters so we are expecting about 500 on the line today. this is one of cal fire's highest priorities. the morgan fire was first reported yesterday afternoon off of morgan fire territory road right around 1:30 and immediately, mandatory evacuations were issued along oak hill land or road and curry canyon road. the latest evacuations are from trail ride, russelman park, east trail, upper and lower trail roads, and cal fire says right now up to 50 and 75 buildings are threatened by the fire. now, this is one of the largest fires in the area in recent history. the last one residents remember was the fire of '77 where lightning triggered fires that burned 6,000 acres on the north
6:03 am
side of mount diablo. we understand that cal fire says that yesterday's flames were fueled by temperatures in the 90s including that slight breeze which really goes to show you how weather plays a crucial role in fighting these fires and so for an update on those conditions, let's send things over to brian hackney in the weather center. brian. >> cate, i'm looking carefully at your hair of all things and i notice that you're not being blown about at all. and that's a good sign because winds are fairly calm this morning and that's really going to help firefighters out. the latest on conditions up there showing that winds are just slightly out of the northwest not much. maybe to about 10 miles an hour. the forecast is for them to gain another 50% in velocity to about 15 miles an hour. that's not much. the good news is the direction. east winds will be bad. that's a very dry direction. the forecast is for them to remain out of the northwest. that's not the moistest possible direction. that would be southweserlies but we'll take northwesterlies, not bad, and also take 15 miles per hour. the highs toward the summit 90 to 98 degrees so the temperatures are up, winds are
6:04 am
down, the humidity fairly dry 20 to 30% but that's not bone dry so the firefighters are getting a little bit of an assist from the weather. the temperatures right now mild for the most part nearing 60 degrees in spots. highs in the bay area, 100 livermore, 89 vallejo, concord 96 degrees. so it's going to be a hot one today in the bay area but at least the winds will not be picking up much and that he that's the latest. dozens of homes evacuated because of the morgan fire. evacuees were told they could get help at an emergency shelter. a lot had to leave home late last night. with more on that let's check in with elizabeth wenger at one of the evacuation centers at the community library in clayton this morning. >> reporter: good morning. no one is here right now out of the 100-plus families that had to be evacuated. i talked to a red cross volunteer. they have been here on standby overnight since last night. so a lot of people obviously stayed with friends, family,
6:05 am
stayed in a hotel. but they are here if they want to use it as a place for rest, use the phones. want to let you know there were some additional evacuations overnight. those include trail ride, russelman park, east trail, upper trail, lower trail road, roughly 24 homes there. since yesterday there were evacuations along oak hill lane, curry canyon road and curry point area. evacuees we talked to say the fire was close but they are hopeful still that firefighters will gain the upper hand soon. didn't see any flames, we saw a lot of smoke. we were thinking, you know, it's -- we were told it was about a quarter mile away. now, that seems a little close. if the wind changes, it could be dangerous. but, you know, we didn't feel we were in a lot of danger, actually. >> reporter: and obviously this is a country area burning so a lot of folks have animals, cattle, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, you name it.
6:06 am
so the contra costa county fairgrounds is being used as an evacuation site. they are capable of holding large and small animals. we were there a little earlier this morning and so far, they haven't received any animals but again they are on standby for that later this morning in case that's needed. heather farms in walnut creek has been taking a lot of horses. frank, back to you. >> and we're hearing stories, liz, of people being very generous with their time lending a helping hand to some of these folks that are now out of their homes. >> reporter: i know. don't you love it? we love hearing these kind of stories in times of crisis. yeah, volunteers were right there when the fire started burning yesterday. they were there with their horse trailers trying to transport stranded animals to other sites and obviously, with no one here, at this evacuation center at clayton community library, a lot of folks are finding other places with friends and family and neighbors to stay. >> absolutely. okay, elizabeth wenger live in clayton, thank you. and new this morning, multiple fire crews are responding to a two-alarm house fire in fremont. you can still see smoke coming
6:07 am
from that area there above the fire trucks. it broke out on farwell between vernon and waller avenues. three people rescued from the fire and during the rescue the fremont fire captain tells us two firefighters were injured. minor injuries, though. no word on a cause of the fire. power lines are down at the moment though at more than 2,000 pg&e customers are without power in that fremont area. let's check in with liza battalones to see if that's affecting the morning commute. >> it is slowing down some traffic through the area primarily residential. we just want to remind folks if you are from the fremont area and you proven a blacked out intersection because of the power outage, remember to treat that as a four-way stop. as we once again talk about the morgan fire fire burning in the clayton area affecting so many drivers in the back roads communities of blackhawk, brentwood, pleasanton and danville. currently marsh creek road closed in both directions between camino diablo and regency. morgan territory road closed to highland road in alameda county. you can see some of the sensors there along highway 4 it's

6:09 am
people. he will address the nation tomorrow. meanwhile, syrian president bashar assad is speaking exclusively to cbs. here's what he said to cbs' charlie rose about a possible military strike against his government. >> do you expect an air strike? >> if the united states doesn't obey the international law and tramples over the charter of the united nations we have to worry that any administration not only this one would do anything. but according to the lie that is we have been hearing for the last two weeks, some high ranking officials in this administration, we have to expect the worst. >> president assad also told charlie rose syria will retaliate if the u.s. attacks. and you can see more of that interview on "cbs this morning" starting at 7:00 right here on kpix 5. getting congressional support for the syrian air strike is no easy task for the obama administration evenly within the democratic -- even
6:10 am
within the democratic party. nancy pelosi sent five letters to democrats in an effort to build support but many in congress remain staunchly opposed to an attack. bay area congressman eric swalwell tells our phil matier he is going to vote with his constituents' views in mind. >> my constituents across the board it's a firm solid no. why now? how is this in america's best interests? i think force should be the last option after you exhaust all other remedies. >> according to a new cnn poll, 59% of americans do not want congress to authorize a military strike against syria. even though 8 in 10 americans think his government used chemical weapons. time now 6:10. college tuition is expensive. how trade schools are measuring up to their costs. >> and libraries are supposed to be a place of solace. what else is happen at san francisco public libraries coming up. >> we have been slaving over a hot weather computer all morning to bring you a pretty

is foggy and big time. so we'll start out with very moderate temperatures along the coast. afternoon sun for most everybody even including the beach, but it will stay hot inland, cooler weather for everybody tomorrow as we have a deeper marine layer and cools everybody off. for now high pressure over the eastern pacific the past couple of days is going to continue in that spot and as a result, the numbers are going to stay warm inland so hot away from the coast, but the fog and the low clouds definitely streaming through the golden gate this morning. so you'll notice in san jose for instance temperatures 90 but over to half moon bay it's just 69. in the city today we are expecting 68 degrees. out in the east bay though we are not at record highs but plenty warm. 100 degrees at livermore. these warm temperatures will not help the firefighters on the flanks of mount diablo. concord nearby at 96 degrees. 9 napa, as well. up in the north bay the numbers will be in the 80s for the most
6:46 am
part except near the shoreline. sausalito 72. bodega bay 70. 100 in the warmest spots but look what happens as the week goes on, temperatures cool down and neck weekend we'll just be in the upper 80s inland. hey, the forecast for the man who created the secret service, abraham lincoln, on the day he died. he created the secret service earlier in the morning they named a school after him up in santa rosa. the forecast for the schoolcast, morning bell 55 degrees, lunch. time 80, and then 92 at 3:00 in the afternoon. you want to feature your own school on the schoolcast? just enter online that's all the business fit to print in the weather department. as for the rest of the business, here's michelle. thank you, brian. thanks for the history lesson. >> absolutely. we mentioned apple plans to announce something new. >> let's find out what investors are excited about. here's kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. tomorrow i guess the big day, right? >> certainly is. good morning. big deal down in cupertino
6:47 am
tomorrow. apple is going to launch their newest iphone. expected to launch two different models. the 5s which will be its premium model and the 5c which is expected to be a budget iphone especially intended for overseas customers and the "wall street journal" says that apple will strike a partnership with china mobile, that's critical because it's biggest wireless carrier in china. the other big question facing apple according to investors is the pricing on the 5c. just how cheap will it be? all things digital projects $400 to $500. some think it could be as cheap as $300 out the door. apple stock is rising. that's helping out the over at tech sector on the iphone anticipation. google is also making news this morning. it's submitting its latest proposal to european regulators to try and settle an ongoing antitrust case over its search practices. rivals claiming it

6:49 am
property throughout the state. and the state legislature is -- holds that waterfront property in trust. now, the san francisco port is allowed to do certain things here and there, but basically you can't build just anything on the waterfront. one of the most fundamental requirements for any kind of waterfront development is that it be water-related or maritime- related. so a cruise ship terminal would work. but hotels and condos, probably not. and the reason for that is to make sure that the public continues to have access to that waterfront property. so he said we are not going to debate. we declare that this arena is consistent with those purposes. we are going to declare that the arena is water-related so long as it does things like have parks and public access and allow boats -- some boats to berth there and has limited parking and retail space. we are not going to allow the debate to delay the development process as it goes forward. >> well -- [ laughter ] >> how does that work?! [ laughter ]
6:50 am
>> i mean, it's an arena. it could go anywhere. >> it's a stretch. they knew they would be in for a big fight. . >> they say with that $120 million price tag to fix those piers up and make them usable they are very few projects that are going to work in this space. very few things are going to pencil out that are traditional maritime uses so it would take something big like an arena for a developer to feel like it's financially in their best interests to spend that kind of money to fix those piers up so they say number one, it's not really doing anything right now, number two, this is as good as we'll get and they are requiring certain things about limited parking and retail so we have these other 16 little things in place we'll say this is appropriate use of the waterfront. >> this is just beginning. i mean, come on. is this going to get built do
6:51 am
you think with all this controversy already? >> i don't know. people are already lining up to stop it. of course, the people in the east bay, for example, representatives in the senate, assembly and east bay are very much against this in fact representative nancy skinner whose district includes richmond and berkeley, has some very choice words about whether the legislature should be weighing in on one side or the other about a project that's going to remove jobs from her district and puts them in san francisco. >> all right. you can find more of melissa griffin-caen's segments on we'll see how it plays out. time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." >> and this will be a big slow today. norah o'donnell is standing by with the very latest. charlie had quite a weekend, didn't? >> reporter: he sure did. a significant news morning this morning. good morning to you, frank and michelle. ahead we'll have charlie rose's global exclusive with syrian president bashar al-assad. it is his only television
