tonight, police have detained a man in connection with a fire that scorched part of a los angeles park. that fire broke out just below griffith park observatory about 3:00 this afternoon. at one point, rangers blocked people from using the trails. painters spotted someone setting the fires. shortly after that, a man was taken into custody.
that fire grew to eight eacres before they got it under control. 79-year-old lucille was found dead in her home in 1988. police say she was strangled, stabbed and sexually assaulted. 34 years later, a dna match from her fingernail scrapings just identified her killer. investigators say it was this man. terry leroy bramble. this mug shot is from 2009. officials say he was a homeless sex offender who died of natural causes in 2011. the dna was on file from a sex assault case in san joaquin county. a woman got a wild surprise when she took in a stray kitten. >> it wasn't a kitten, it was a baby fox. concerned family members placed a call to animal control in rockland. they relocated the little fox to a local wildlife rescue where it
is properly cared for. >> it could have been a mountain lion, i guess. >> i first saw the eyes. maybe it's a baby bobcat or mountain lion. a fox is very different. very sweet. you can see where she would fall in love with it. maybe not necessarily meant for n domestic purposes. no. >> i saw that story in a rundown and quickly looked up baby fox, just to see could you mistake a fox for a kitten. it looks like a fox. >> yeah. >> so, it's cute. >> what a bushy tail. >> sharp, little needle teeth. they have that in common. let's look at what's happening in the weather, as we head to the next couple days. mostly clear skies. we're not going to see much fog. warmer temperatures, especially inland as we head to the rest of the week and the weekend. rm warmer temperatures often coincides with a higher fire threat. thursday and friday aren't the warmest days but will bring a
change in wind direction. offshore winds, combined with humidity, will escalate the fire threat. we showed you solano county thursday and friday. the humidity levels are forecast to be below 10% by late thursday afternoon, into thursday evening. combine that with the gusty offshore winds and that really escalates the fire threat. now, despite the fact there's no other counties around the bay area under any fire weather watches or red flag warnings, it doesn't mean the fire threat is zero. we have to watch this carefully thursday, thursday night and friday. the worst combination of low humidity and gusty winds will take shape in the central valley, as opposed to directly over the bay area. just a hint of fog on the horizon. it won't be widespread at all. temperatures in the low to mid-60s. these numbers aren't going to drop a lot as we head through the rest of tonight. the winds will continue to calm down through the rest of tonight and into tomorrow morning. it's that lack of a strong
onshore wind that will allow temperatures to warm up. on the coast, you should get into the 60s before the wind kicks back in. san francisco should make it up to 70, upper 70s for oakland and the east bay. but the onshore wind does kick in into the evening and the temperatures will cool down. and it's not going to be strong enough to push the marine layer into the inland valley. we're in the 40s and 50s tomorrow morning. the last game of the a's series against the twins, unseasonably warm temperatures, starting in the 70s. first pitch at 12:40 wednesday afternoon. temperatures will top out in the upper 70s. layer up and don't forget the sunscreen. the coolest spots, along the coast. low 60s. at least you will make it out of the 50s. 80 on the peninsula. and south end of the bay, mid to upper 80s in the santa clara valley. low 90s around concord and low to mid 90s east.
96, the hot spot in fair field. up to 70 in san francisco, about 2:00 and then back into the 60s. upper 70s to around 80 degrees, with mostly mid to upper 80s. as you go inland, with the warmer spots topping out around 90 degrees and farther. temperatures will back off a little bit with the northerly winds on thursday. despite the cooler temperatures, those are the fire threat days, thursday and friday. not much change to our temperatures overall, over the next several days. we'll cstay above average. well into the 80s around san jose. some spots inland on the east bay and the north bay, getting around 90 degrees intermittently. no records in store, but unseasonably warm weather. eve of the nba conference finals, warriors/mavericks out west. and the celtics and heat couldn't wait. and baseball, the giants using rockies stadium as a
good job at oracle park. back to the cue cards. we have the giants and the winning ways, back-to-back now. all you can eat offense tonight, at the rockies. one of my favorite things to see in a ballpark. hello, young man. what happened on the second pitch of the game? a 454-foot solo blast. next inning, brandon crawford, shot one down the right field line. by the time it was relayed in, crawford was in third for a triple. and the ball was thrown into the dugout. and crawford found himself home plate. 6-1, in the fourth. off of the wall, good enough to bring home two runs. mike yastrzemski, just ahead of the tag, giants leading 10-2. held on for a 10-7 win. get this, the 12th-straight win over the rockies.
twins at the a's. hey, there was a cell phone in the outfield in the game. he brought it to lost and found. kevin smith was 0 for 18, with two runs, big play. love the action. and then, 3-2 oakland in the seventh, sean murphy found a home. he snapped a hitless streak. this scored two more runs, as the a's win it 5-2, and stopped a three-game losing streak. nba playoffs and the warriors. we'll see you from chase center tomorrow. western conference finals open for business. dallas mav riemavericks, a 6:00 start. remember the 2007 we believe here. the opponent was dallas. they've not been in the postseason since. the warriors knocked off the mavs, it was one of dub nation's finest moments. >> a great moment in warriors history. a devastating one in mavs
history. >> when i first got here at oracle, they used to interview the season ticketholders during the game. and what's your favorite warrior moment and that was always the one. to venus williams in miami. we have heat and boston celtics, finals game one moment. looked like boston would run away with it. jayson tatum off-balance. he scored 21 in the first half. they led by 13. but miami picked the celtics clean in the second. the butler did it. 41 points in 41 minutes. miami won game one. i'm sure you probably had the moments in tennis, maybe it was a foot fault, a double-fault, soaring the opponent's confidence, and then you crush them, to win in three sets. >> oh. didn't have happen often. but thank you. i do like talking about venus williams. venus and serena, love hearing them. thanks. up next, a mom in texas gets
a texas mom got an unexpected notification saying her door dash order was going to take a little longer due to its size. >> here's the problem, she didn't recall ordering anything. turns out -- i hope my little guy is not watching this. her younger son, the youngest son, did make a little order after getting ahold of her unlocked phone. not long after, the door dash driver arrives with 31 mcdonald's cheeseburgers. >> i didn't know what to do with them. he only ate half of one. i posted on the community page here and asked if anyone wanted some. one girl came by and picked up six. >> okay. look at that.
