3:28 pm
they are training for covid once they turn about a year old that's when the training starts training takes roughly 6 weeks they smell 10,000 times more than what we do. >>so it's kind you can compare it to a dog could smell a drop of for a few and an olympic size pool, the international airports in helsinki finland and dubai united arab emirates are already using covid sniffing dogs. >>heather says she is in negotiations with professional sports teams and concert venues in the united states to use her dogs for the dogs, it's nothing but a game of hide and seek. so you had the sample, they know that surcharge voter they go find it. >>that was brian entin reporting now if the dogs alert, someone, a rapid covid test will then be used to confirm whether or not the person actually has the virus but so for the dogs have a 98% accuracy rate pretty good. next at 3.30 a homeowner concerned about the glass fire that's still burning in napa county why she says crews are making more fuel for the fires right near her home. also what

breaks that were put in during the glass fire have been taken out murray did they explain why they did this. >>i'm still trying to get to the bottom of that just seen let me first set the scene here i am in saint helene bail grist mill park also which butts up against a both a state park here now the winemaker i spoke to her property is right up against this state land here now let me show you some video and you can see. >>the fire burned 25 of her 40 acres now her winery and her home did survive this blaze and and so did her crops during that time during the glass fire, some fire breaks were cut into the state park land. she believes by cal fire or the state department of forestry, which she credits in part for helping stop the fire from wiping out a lot of homes and wineries in this area. but in the last few days she says
3:36 pm
crews that she believes is working under the order of state parks has been removing those fire breaks by covering them up with chop trees and brush. now she says she was told this is erosion control. and she understands that but she doesn't understand why this is being done now in the middle of a red flag warning now she did not want her face or name shown. but take a listen as she sees one of those fire breaks covered up now for the very first time. >>honestly overwhelmed, i mean. this western most break on my property protected all of us in the community and. i didn't even know they were going to remove the break and cover it with all the trees i thought they were just doing the one down by my van you're by my house, which. i mean i can't if something happens here. we had spot fires literally just on the burnside last night in the park we can't put those out. we had a burn. that's fought for is
3:37 pm
right here at our pond. 5200 yards away last night. and they still completed the removal of the fire break. and i get it with of the roads in cultural i get it. but it is so dry we're still under a flag like why would they cover it up right now. and i will say they've told me if there's another fire event we would we would just come in and bulldoze it back out but. it would take 2 or 3 hours to get a bulldozer up >>now obviously she's very frustrated with this process here now and with good reason while i was there we saw plumes of smoke just about a half mile away from her property rising in the distance apparently another a hot spot that was kicking up. cal fire says they do routinely work with state for what they suppression repair and erosion control. state
3:38 pm
parks just email me back moments ago saying that they and cal fire been working closely together throughout the glass fire to protect public safety and property. >>a bail mill and state parks state park rangers are not directing anyone to cover the fire breaks. but obviously they were covered up they also go on to say that they have an agreement with calfire to do this sort of. suppression repair. so we're still trying to get to the bottom of exactly who ordered this work and why it's happening right now under a red-flag warning and i'll tell you, here's a piece of the trees and oak that was on that fire break used to cover it up and i can tell you it's it's extremely brutal. so you really have to question the timing here just staying. >>we know you'll be following the story for us for us marine and we'll have the latest tonight at 5 thank you kron four's your local election headquarters this election season in just a friendly reminder. we are now 19 days away from the november, 3rd
