>> when fun time from the bay area's local news station. you're watching kron. 4 news. it clears out the skies with allows for all that aircraft to work the flip side is that it brings in fresh oxygen to the fire and helps fanned those flames and push them to move faster. >> now at 10 firefighters working around the clock to keep the flames from spreading into south lake tahoe. better weather is expected to help the crews battling the caldor fire tonight. but this fight is far from over. thank you for joining us on kron 4 news at 10 i'm pam moore and i'm ken wayne. while the winds were calmer today. the fire is still being fueled by dry vegetation and spot fires continue to pop up. >> here's a look at the latest numbers. according to cal fire's latest update, almost 4,000 firefighters are battling the flames more than 210,000 acres have burned containment is up to 27%. more
than 800 buildings have been destroyed almost 32,000 others are still being threatened. so let's get the latest now from the ground reporter chip yost joins us live from the california nevada state line and ship. you've been there a couple of days now you've seen the progress. how are you feeling about the way things look. >> was looking good today was a really good day for firefighters to get a break in the weather. they got a break in the winds. the skies cleared up. so they were able to get some more precise air drops and it's looking good. but the fire is moving east. you mentioned we're in stateline, nevada, which is literally on the state line. just a couple blocks that way is south lake tahoe in california were actually believe it or not, you know, would know by looking behind me, we're in the parking lot of the hard rock casino here on the state line is basically been transformed to a staging ground for firefighters and other agencies are trying to help out in the fight of this fire. if it gets across the state line in the energy the biggest power company in the
is also staging the area we're at right now. they work with fire departments to protect infrastructure and power lines in a wildfire. luckily, they haven't been need to get. the fire is not reached the state line, but they are having some issues on the south side of the fire in california. >> nearly 3 weeks in and the counter fire is still doing damage here in the caples valley on the south end of the fire. firefighters are trying to prevent the fire from reaching the kirkwood ski resort and some cabins in the area. and even though the red flag warning is over. the winds are still presenting a challenge for an extremely rugged territory throughout the so far. this is a huge fire instant with all different types terrain. >> the winds even though we're not red flag warning. there. winds to gust throughout that area and over the ridge tops they can reach gusts of 30 to 40 miles an hour, even without being under red flag warning. so still pushing the fire so far since the fire started. it has destroyed more than 600 homes across more than 300
square miles of destruction ashes from the fire can now be seen washing up on the shores of lake tahoe and with south lake tahoe under mandatory evacuation bears have had free rein around town. but for that area of the fire. things are looking better. >> thursday. the reduced winds and better conditions allowed firefighters to light backfires on the outskirts of south lake tahoe. so crews are in here backfiring and they have to wait. till conditions are just right to do in all, it is controlled fire taking away the fuels in front of the fire preventing the fire from being able to come in. >> and move in that direction. so in a sense, we're guiding the fire in a direction that we want it to go. >> in just a couple of hours ago we got some more good news. they gave an update as far as the latest containment numbers containment went from, i believe was 25% or 25% up to 27% now went up a few. a couple of percentage points to 27%. so they are making
progress on the fire and hopefully that will continue as we get into the weekend for now reporting live here on the state line in nevada. chip yost. send it back to you. a tip, a curious. you have a north lake tahoe fire truck behind you. obviously mutual aid has been called. so there are a lot of agencies from california on the scene. but. >> you're in nevada now and i'm just wondering when the fire crosses over the state line. does that change things is cal-fire stop and that gets picked up by nevada. firefighters times at work. know, i'm not sure i was about to have a conversation some folks earlier. >> they did today. they divided the fire into to basically incident management so they're with the fire on the west in with one management team and now another management team handling the east end, which would get it if it got into the state line. they have to kind of make those decisions. there is federal aid coming into this fire is a declaration was made for president by day for help to come in for the fire. but as far as how that would work
exactly. not sure what a big bet information for you later. >> chip yost reporting live. thank you so much again for your report from the fire lines the counter fire's progress for the sierra has slowed a bit. but if course is still very much a big problem. our grant lotus is live in the newsroom tonight with an update on where the fire is burning tonight. grant. good evening. pam and ken, you know, it only grew this fire by about 600 acres today. >> that is a big change from what it had been doing. remarkable improvement and credit to the firefighters who have really slow this thing down, at least right now. yes, the weather helped the big focus tonight as you take a look at the cal fire map. the latest cal fire map. big focus remains homes in the round lake south lake tahoe proper including a christmas valley and then you also have kirkwood a fly in here. get a closer look. this is christmas valley right here along highway 89 lot of homes right down here in this area that have been spared. you see the
fire is on both sides of highway 89 lot of water drops in this area today to keep that fire at bay here. all the homes in south lake tahoe. the south lake tahoe airport right here. there's the see the proximity, maybe 2 and a half miles from the fire line to there and hear those some of those spot fires we've been talking about better popping up just beyond the edge of the fire. so as those fires pop up, they really try to jump on those to prevent those from merging with the larger fire and that would enable the fire to make a better charge. east towards nevada. so the the fire is heading east trying to go north and that is one area of concern for firefighters tonight. the other couple areas kirkwood. you heard a chip yost mentioned how they're trying to protect the cabins and obviously the resort. a lot of kirkwood city area here and highway 88 runs through there. and they're trying to keep this fire to the north of highway 88 you see a bunch of little spot fires popping up just to the
south of 88. so they're trying to douse those quickly so that they can control this thing and not allowed to jump highway 88 like it jumped a highway 50 earlier this week that we have another map that we can show you. and that is the heat. this is an infrared map showing the he profiles and you can see the yellow is the least amount of heat, the oranges and the reds the most. so this is where they're seeing a lot of intensity and that's where the fire is trying to grow. so that gives you an idea of where the priorities are here along highway 88. we talked about that. and then finally, this is the evacuation map which is changing out. that's good. some folks in pollack pines and elsewhere being allowed to head home. the orange here in the middle is where the fire has burned yellows evacuation warnings red evacuation orders. evacuation orders have just been lifted tonight for the region. round round hill in the douglas county. that's here in southern nevada as well as lower oaks points and
firefighters tonight are working to just continue to. use their bulldozers to bolster the lines that they have established so that if a wind gust does come and there is a spot fire that, you know, the fire can kind of follow that, if you will, that they have created even bigger lines than they already have. so that is one of the goals tonight, lot of work to do and it seemingly never ends. there on the caldor fire for now. we'll send it back to you, ken and pam. all right. grant, thank you very much. the counter for dixie another wildfires have put a strain on firefighting resources all over california. >> last year. you'll recall in felton crews battled the czu fire in the santa cruz mountains. those same fire teams have now moved on to help fight the caldor and the dixie wildfires, cal fire's chief admits local resources have been drawn down to what he calls a critical level. >> so with all the fire activity here locally in the san mateo santa cruz unit. our have been drawn down to what
we consider critical. levels. word are bare minimum. we won't send anything else out and unless we absolutely have to. if we had an event that you know, threatening a lot of structures and we have a potential threat to life. we would make that request and they would pull resources from those other incidents and send them our direction because initial attack is our priority. >> 11 of the 13 inches from cal fire's, san mateo, santa cruz units and one of its 2 bulldozers and all but 2 conservation corps crews are now fighting other fires. cal fire santa clara and other units are also stretched thin right now local city and county fire departments are backing up. cal fire through mutual aid agreements. we have continuing coverage of the counter fire on our website. you can find interactive evacuation maps the map showing where structures have been damaged or destroyed and we're evacuees can get help. just scan the qr code you see on the screen. it's all at kron. 4 dot com. >> of course, weather. so
crucial to any firefight. let's check in now with our chief meteorologist lawrence karnow for a closer look at conditions of crews can expect certainly improve these past 24 hours. they've gone from red flag warnings. all the sudden the fire is actually being pushed back in on itself with some of the winds coming out of the north and pushing it back toward the places that have already burned. so that's good news for firefighters are going want to see more of that right now here, the very latest on last few hours. you can see little more of a west south westerly component to the winds and then turning coal into parts of south lake tahoe up toward trent bridge is we want to see more of those calm conditions and this is where we sit right now. and you can see overall the wind begin to switch just a little bit becoming out of the northeast and pushing the fire back in on itself so that is exactly what we want to see tonight that will slow down the fire. but it won't be perfect. you'll still see some place where the fire will run up some hills and in some of that rain will get some different wind directions and that could push the fire other ways. but right now they are getting some help as far as
humidity is concerned, it's just bone dry up there. we've got 42% right now. a relative humidity myers. 42% southlake all 60% at the echo lake. that's not to drive. but in around the fire very dry. and of course, we've had the drought and that will just accentuate all the problems. all right. i want to show this to this. the very latest in our forecast for our winds as we head through the next 24 hours as we take you to the night tonight. you see almost more of the northerly component. the wind developing throughout the night. that is good news for firefighters is that's going to push that away from south lake tahoe. let's keep our fingers crossed for that. but then by tomorrow afternoon, the wind is going to switch directions. this. what happens throughout the day. the wind is always shifting by tomorrow afternoon. it will get hot enough inland office and that air rises inland. so you start to get more of a westerly component late in the day but looks like through tonight and through tomorrow morning. looks like more of a northerly wind that should slow down the progress of certainly hope keep your fingers crossed, lawrence, thank you. >> another big story we are following tonight. contra,

those who are old enough for being told it's best to be fully vaccinated and those who are not vaccinated are being told to get tested regularly or be limited from high-risk close contact sports. >> such as football. as for preventing the spread of covid-19 off of the field. the time spent in locker rooms should be limited along with mask wearing on team buses. and if the team travels out of state following cdc guidelines and wellbeing of its schools are all following these guidelines of other. >> private clubs and another non-school youth activities. follow these guidelines will be able to keep the cases down. we'll be able to keep these activities going. >> the county health department says that there's guidance is not a part of a legally binding health order. this is just simply expert advice that will help keep people safe from covid-19 reporting live in or into dan thorn kron 4 news stand. thank you for that report.
