>> this is video of the drive out of the campfire thursday morning. he left before getting an evacuation order, and already he says the roads were a disaster. >> and it was absolute gridlock. people were already freaking out, and cutting over on to the sidewalks and the bike lane. it was chaos. >> reporter: and it got worse from there. this is video of a cal fireman rescuing a woman fleeing in her wheelchair as people left their cars in a panic. many claim they never got an evacuation alert, or got it too late. >> my criticism is the same thing. where are you? >> reporter: but the mayor and cal fire say short of predicting the future, there is no way the his tear i can't could have been avoid -- hysteria could have been avoided. by the time they knew it was heading to paradise there were wind gusts up to 70 miles an
6:01 pm
hour. after 8 temperature, the first alerts went to the primary evacuation zones. by 8:29, jared shot this video. you can see the fire bearing down on paradise and shortly after is when he got his first text alert. a second with more evacuation zones at 9:09. >> i feel like there was no way for people to really get alerted quick enough. >> reporter: by noon, the camp fire burned through town, and turned about 17 square miles to ash. it only took 5.5 hours, and the area you see in purple was charred black. >> i don't think you can design an evacuation plan to get everyone in your town out. there's just not enough roadway infrastructure to do that. the other big story, the unhealthy air in the bay area isn't going anywhere. >> relief that was to come this weekend, just got pushed back from the north to the sows bay,
6:02 pm
we are socked -- south bay, we are socked with this gross, unhealthy air. let's go to paul deanno. what has changed. paul? the wind direct change we wanted is not going to happen until early next week, likely so, let's set the stage with what we have going on right now, which is near hazardous air. 275 in livermore, hazardous starts at 300. not the best evening to be out. contrast that with santa rosa. tomorrow was expected to be another smoky day. here is confirmation, it will be. it's a spare the air day. now, let's talk about why we likely will not see a change coming up this weekend. low pressure area that we thought was going to be just off to our west turning the winds sending the smoke in the other direction. the low is still there, but about 500 miles farther offshore so it's going to be too far away to flip the winds, so now that the smoke is here,
6:03 pm
we need a strong for thing mechanism to get the smoke out, and that likely will not be provided this weekend. so the aqi is almost in the hazardous level in and around livermore, thursday will be the 8th straight day with unhealthy air, little if any change in the wind or the air quality through the weekend. which means saturday and sunday, likely will be spare the air days with unhealthy air. kpix5 is live from communication hill in the south bay with what doctors are now advising for folks. >> reporter: they're advising people to stop exercising outside, but when we came here, a popular exercise spot in san jose, we saw people doing just that. the problem is that the particles lingering are harmful. they are an about 2.5-microns in size, that's a fraction of the size of a human air. folks who exercise outside, they take in more particles, which bypass the mouth, nose,
6:04 pm
travels through the bronchial tubes, and can cause allergic reactions with your system. doctors have a stern warning for people exercise outdoors. >> i have seen those people, and i advise people not to do that. >> it's kind of scary. maybe we should stop. >> are you? >> we're going to do probably two more and get out of here. >> reporter: the good news is that healthy adults usually recover completely from short term exposure in about a couple days, perhaps a week or so. we're live in san jose, kpix5. san francisco state is canceling for the rest of the week, they are blaming the unhealthy air conditions. it will stay closed through the weekend. we're hearing there will be no fireworks on friday for the embarcadero center building lighting. that, a holiday tradition in san francisco, but not this year because of all the smoke.
6:05 pm
pg&e stock took a huge blow. they reported trouble with a line minutes before the campfire broke out. julie watts is live outside. >> reporter: it took the steepest single day dive in decades, and many wonder what's next with the utility. a new day, a new low for pg&e. the stock lost half its value over the last five days. it comes after pg&e said if the utility is responsible for the butte fire, there's not enough insurance for the damage. they said they had problems with transmission lines before the fire started and many in paradise are criticizing pg&e for failure to follow through. >> they knew there was a problem, and had a plan in
6:06 pm
place to shut it off. why didn't they. >> reporter: the first of manylawsuits was filed this week that accused of them of negligence age failing to properly maintain the power lionel. the utility is facing more than 200 lawsuits stemming from last year's wildfires, with liability estimates as high as 15 million. but it's not clear if that's enough to force the utility into bankruptcy. >> the problem with pg&e, cried wolf. >> reporter: a watch group said they threatened bankruptcy. -- the bill provides financial assistance for the 2017 fires, and would not include bond money for this one. >> maybe bankruptcy is what it will take to get systems change. >> if what's reported is true, we have a serious trouble. this isn't working. >> reporter: in response, pg&e stresses the cause of the
6:07 pm
campfire has not been determined. in a statement, pg&e tells us "our hearts are with the communities impacted by the campfire, we are aware of the lawsuits. right now, the entire company is focused on supporting first responders andassisting customers and communities ." they will not speculate on what or may not be impacting the stock market. governor brown toured the burn zone, and says he will sign an executive order to clear red tape so recovery in the area can speed up. and ryan zenke said california fires are just getting worse. >> each trip, i say this is the worst trip i've seen, and now we're here today, and this is the worst fire i've seen. >> crews are still working to clear debris in the area. the trees, the cars, the power lines still need to be moved out of the streets. local law enforcement has been on high alert for looting
6:08 pm

6:11 pm
cash tolls on these bay area bridges could soon be a thing of the past. we are live at the bay bridge toll plaza with details on a new proposal that is gaining momentum. >> reporter: that's right. we are here at the bay bridge, behind us, can you see the
6:12 pm
traffic backing -- you can see the traffic backing up to pay the tolls this. is pitched as a way to save drivers time, and a question about whether it safely the bridges money. let's take a look. switching to all electric toll collection would save the bay bridges about $5 million a year. but going all electric is likely to cost as well, upwards of $55 million. so, who comes out ahead in the deal? those of us who use the bridges, or the bridge system. >> what's the drive behind this? >> just technology, and moving forward. it's expense i have to have two full collection systems in place. >> reporter: so the plan, starting in 2022, the bridges will start to get rid of their cash lanes and toll takers, and dryers will have the option of getting -- drivers will have the option of getting a fastrak or a bill in the mail. >> how much does that cost? >> more than fastrak, but less than the collective cost of
6:13 pm
carrying for cash. >> reporter: five years ago the golden gate bridge has saved about $900,000 getting rid rid of its toll takers. don't expect the same result with the other 7 bridges. antioch and others will lose back ups but they aren't that heavily traveled. but the san mateo, bay bridge, and richmond san rafael will trim just a few minutes off the their trips with the back ups still likely to remain. >> we expect a trip across the bridge from end to end will be shorter by 7 minutes. your time reductions at the bay bridge probably 3-4 minutes during the -- >> how about san mateo? >> probably about the same. >> so we're extending 25-$50 million for 4-7 minutes? >> that's 4-7 minutes multiplied by thousands of people every day. >> reporter: and the plan is to
6:14 pm
start with the karkanis bridge, and then the bay bridge, which will probably be the last, because it's the biggest with biggest backup. and the most toll takers they have to find new jobs for. >> we're learning more about the big rig that caused a massive crash on highway 1 in santa cruz, they say the truck shouldn't have been on the road because it wasn't registered for highway use. the brakes gave way causing it to plow into other vehicles. >> it's full -- fully loaded, so now you, in this truck has come over highway 17, which has a significant downgrade, you have brakes that are ineffective, so what's left of the brakes, by the time you're done with that, they're gone. >> an investigation is underway
6:15 pm
to determine whether the trucking company will be held responsible. most of us would do anything to avoid the long lines at the dmv, and new automated kiosks could allow you to steer clear of the offices. dmv installed this at the central park library branch. you can renew your registration there on the spot and print out your tags. there are 137 of the kiosks statewide. >> nobody likes to stand in line for hours. and here, you can come to the library, hang out, do your thing, get books, and get your registration printed out. >> instructions are provided in both english and spanish. the kiosks have been placed in libraries, grocery store. one police officer who has fought to keep communities safe is now in the fight for his own

6:17 pm
are going through. >> we love you guys so much. and -- >> i want to say thank you to everyone. >> we appreciate it and -- >> reporter: with the community's help and support, they keep fighting. >> definitely in good spirits, and taking it a day at a time. >> reporter: nicholas albert is kyle's close friend. >> when you sign up for the job, there's a lot we prepare for as far as dangers and threats and we're given a lot of tools in the tool belt, body armor to protect the threat. there's not much that we have in this aspect, we're pretty vulnerable. >> reporter: his friends and family say they know kyle will keep fighting and do his best to stay on a positive note. that's something to watch. we'll make sure we put that
6:18 pm
entire video on our web page so can you see it along with more information on kyle and his family. the family certainly has a gofundme page, and even the officers association is meeting to think of ways to raise fund for his chemotherapy. a lot of information that we'll share on our website. >> what a wonderful family. >> going to get a lot of support. it puts things in perspective. >> no question. >> our troubles are small. >> a great family. so we will talk ballot air quality -- about the air quality, and when it will end. the bad air has been here for 7 days, tomorrow is 8. we'll go ahead through this, and eventually get some rainfall. it's just taking longer than it typically does this time of year. air quality, it's not that good. especially in livermore, i put a different icon, a diamond, because you're near hazardous levels. santa rosa, it's moderate.
6:19 pm
it looks like it's foggy over san jose. santa clara valley, in the smoke, like the rest of us. santa rosa, 71 for a high today. san jose, 68 mosh began hill, 74 -- morgan hill, 74. satellite and radar, we want of ridge of high pressure to move. little of rainfall, so when is the rage going to move -- ridge going to move? probably hang out close enough and strong enough that even through the weekend, the next low will dive down way to the west, so it's not going to give us the wind direction change that we do want to get the smoke going in a different direction. the ridge is still there, weather will stay stagnant, smoky, hazy for the foreseeable future. so hazy tonight, with cool temperatures. overnights have been chilly, down into the 30s. it should be chilly this time of year, livermore 39, oakland 47, santa rosa 35. we stay smoky tomorrow with little change for the next 4-5 days. we will see more significant
6:20 pm
changes towards thanksgiving. so smoky through the weekend, 60s to low 70s for highs. the air should begin to clear next week. notice we do not have any rain in the 7-day forecast. likely the end of next week when the first november rainfall does move into the bay area. back to you. coming up, taking shelter wherever they can. >> why hundred of people are now congregating in one parking lot building a massive tent city for people who have little to nothing left. a college basketball player is suspended. the video will show you why, and it's shocking. managing my type 2 diabetes wasn't my top priority.

6:40 pm
doesn't have a developer in place by april of 2020, the tribe can buy all the land for the grand sum of $300. and then, if the restrictions prevent a feasible project, the fear is the tribe will reopen the lawsuit, charging the city with sabotaging the own agreement. >> the city could lose the gays, get hit with a judgment of 50, $100 million, maybe more. bankrupt the city, and we could end up with a casino at the end of the day. >> reporter: a citizen's group opposed to the plan says this only happened because the city negotiated the deal behind closed doors without consulting the public. >> we think the city went about this backwards, and put themselves in an odd position. >> reporter: the election changed the makeup of the council, and the mayor hopes he can convince the new members to remove some restrictions,

6:47 pm
gate. that's where the fog comes into the bay area. it's the path of least resistance. it's the opposite right now, the smoke wants to exit over the ocean, and golden gate is the biggest exit route, but here's a problem. right at the coastline, the winds are on shore so the smoke is hitting a wall, and backing up over the bay area. it's like a traffic jam in the sky, but the traffic is the smoke and we're stuck breathing it because it's trying to get out. trying to go that way. it's hitting a wall, the wind is going this way, where is it stuck? right over our backyard. that's why the air quality has been so bad. so what we need, a strong westerly wind over the entire bay area to send it the other direction. not happening until early next week. livermore, 229, it's smoky outside. 54, concord, 54, san jose 58, 30s tonight, chilly and smoky

6:49 pm
the other says no. we pick the one that shows the rainfall on there. if this were to verify a nice, solid soaking rain somewhere around the holiday, it would improve the air quality, and give us the rain we need to put out the campfire. we stay smoky through the weekend. that's a change. saturday, like a spare the air day. sunday, likely a spare aday. hearing of events being canceled over the weekend. around thanksgiving, that hopefully will change. highs tomorrow above average, even with the smoke. campbell 71, union city, 70, 68 in danville and pittsburg, 70 in sonoma. we stay smoky lieu the weekend, air quality should improve next week as we cool down. no rain in the 7-day yet. likely some rain, we hope, by the middle to end of next week.
