6:01 am
that. if you're heading from the east bay into the city a little under 11 minutes. they just turn the metering lights on. so they have to wait just a little bit. not too much, though, because it's still early heading across towards the peninsula little under 13 minutes. there and there is a report of a fire. 80 westbound east across the boulevard enrichment. if you're taking bart. it's also a 20 minute delay on the richmond lie in the millbrae direction. so we'll keep a close eye on that. the dorian james, i'll send it over. you. >> and we are looking at conditions this morning that are actually relatively clear, not a whole lot of fun to be talking about. we do have a thin veil of low marine layer that's hovering across parts of the day as we do kick off this morning. a look outside from your berkeley hills. cam does show that very thin marine layer. you could actually see much of this view and visibility is fine for most areas are current. temperatures are mostly in the 50's to 60's with oakland and san mateo each at 58 san jose 60 to pittsburgh 64 livermore. not bad. actually really nice start at 65. once that sun
6:02 am
comes up enjoy some time outside this morning before things heat back up this afternoon. james. our john, thank you very much. at 6. oh, one our top story this morning continues to be the dixie fire burning. >> in northern california. up in butte and plumas counties. and what we have here are 2 satellite images showing you the town of greenville. this is the view from before the dixie fire ravaged the town. you can see all the buildings there. the streets, everything clearly defined now on the right side, the after image this entire downtown section burned to the ground. every single building their reduced to a pile of rubble. that's how destructive this fire has been and it continues to grow in size 490,000 acres right now they are making progress and containment, but it's slow right now, containment is at 27%. but again, looking at these images, you really get a sense of the destruction fact aria with you and i were looking off camera at the number of structures destroyed over a 1000 and so think about that when you 0 in down on the
6:03 am
ground and get a look at the damage like kron 4. sarah stinson is doing right now. and just. >> seeing the devastation in greenville. this small town that just as almost nothing left. sarah, good morning. >> yeah, it's really hard for the people who live here who stuck around keeping track of their livestock. volunteer firefighters having to see this. the destruction, their own library burned to the ground. you know, only the bare bones of it. still standing and you just go down the line. you all of the restaurants in the business is there's actually an american flag that someone stuck up. probably a symbol of hope for people, especially for the firefighters who are, you know, fighting these flames. cal fire and 4 in the forest service have been working tirelessly together around the clock to make sure the flames don't travel towards another community because so far chester crescent mills. jane ville have all been spared from this. the fire hasn't become close to susan biller quincy yet, but canyon dam,
6:04 am
greenville alma nor all destroyed thousands are still evacuated, not knowing what will happen with just over a 1000 structures, though burned to the ground so far in this dixie fire. thousands of acres of the lesson and plumas national forest land is also burned, which is so sad. the dixie fire has so far burned a total of 490,000 acres. that's up from yesterday. it is 27% contained this morning. and i do expect that number to get a little bit bigger as we wait for the updated numbers. we know crews probably took advantage of the cooler temperatures that happened overnight. but it's about to be another hot day. triple digit temperatures. >> it's dry and visibility is poor due to heavy smoke. there might be isolated thunderstorms as well. later this week. the fire right now is burning mostly in the northeast region of the fire. and that is where they're trying to hold it so that it
6:05 am
doesn't hit any more structures are homes yesterday. cal fire told me that's the message we're sending our fire crews save structures at all costs and no, of course lives to. but hopefully those who needed to evacuate did darya james send it back to you, sara. you know, i've been away for a couple days. and i know you've been covering the fires and you've covered. >> you know, you cover the fire in paradise. i don't know if you've been doing this. but what viewers so appreciate is when you go sort of block to block even if it's the downtown area and say what the business was. are what the address. if you can even make out in a dress because you're you've got a vantage point that people can't get in to see. so they appreciate even seeing was sadly the rubble left of their home. i don't know if you're able to do that. maybe later this morning are viewed an end already. >> yeah, and also there's a volunteer firefighter is also the president of the firefighters association up here. yeah, he's been really good about that. he knows
6:06 am
everybody in town because he grew up here. so he's been calling people up saying i'm sorry your real estate office is no longer i and so on the hardware store, the owner of the hardware store evacuated out doesn't really want to come back up here because it's a generationally own business burned to the ground i assays is very, very sad. yeah. it is sad and i want to explain viewers why we do yeah, i really do appreciate it because they can't get in. and you're giving us a great view. >> of that. thanks a lot, sarah. >> they don't have the for the dixie fire now officially, but we are learning that pg and e a power line is believed to have sparked the blaze and it turns out it was supposed to be scheduled to be buried underground. the la times says the forest service gave the green light for that line to be buried last july and the state granted a permit for the project last october. but pg e says it still didn't have all the necessary approval.
6:07 am
>> to move forward and actually buried at power line. >> that they are thinking may have sparked the fire and inspectors found no problems. >> with the power equipment in the area where the dixie fire started about a month ago. the utility did acknowledge that it's lines may have sparked both the dixie fire and the fly fire which later merged into one. >> 6. '07, is the time another big story that we're following this morning. the oakland unified school district now, reversing course and instead will be requiring teachers and staff to be vaccinated for covid-19 and there's not much time to get that done. this policy changes that may because of a spike in the cases in alameda county, kron four's, camila barco. >> is in the newsroom with more. hi camilla. >> good morning. deiah james. see at oakland unified school district employees have 2 options. they can either prove that they are vaccinated or get tested weekly and this rule applies to teachers

6:10 am
hear that they've changed that right to the pandemic situation and that the delta variant is changing daily and leaders need to adapt to that. >> and that's what they're doing is adapting. that's why san francisco public schools change the policy and they're about 10,000 employees. and so far they say only half have submitted their vaccination status to the district so far and the majority show they are vaccinated. the remaining staff have until august 31st to submit their vax if a vaccination verification. >> also happening today, a new vaccine mandate covering hospital visits will begin here in california. it requires anyone visiting a hospital or a nursing home facility to be vaccinated against covid-19 or at least provide proof of a negative test at some point within the 72 hours leading up to your visit. frontline health care officials call the mandate a timely precaution. given the circumstance that we're in right now. there's an exemption to this new restriction for anyone who is visiting a patient who is in critical condition when death might be imminent. so we'll
