6:01 am
right across the east bay hills there in the distance. now what we do have as far as air quality goes, is good to moderate more and more moderate into the afternoon and we do have another spare, the air alert in effect today. much as we saw yesterday. so really all in all, a lot of today's elements are lining up very similar to what we had for your labor day on monday. 50's 60's and even a couple of 70's on the map this morning. pittsburgh at 71 degrees. san francisco at 57 well berkeley and the right now. it's 60 degrees. rain is back today talking about our commute, which is back today as well. how's it going on the roads. you know what we're starting to pick up out there like we have an accident down here in the south bay. >> northbound one. oh, one just north of guadalupe parkway. and as you can see, just a small section of one. oh, one has been impacted by that accident. not cede any additional delays across our jason highways and the south bay head into the city this morning from the east bay a little under 30 minutes. look at that. they just turn the metering lights on there. traffic is going to start to build as you head back to work and school today. a look at

6:03 am
about 4 miles from my location. we lose internet. that's how remote this area is. but you can see the firefighters at the scene. they're monitoring the situation. these firefighters almost got badly injured if not killed because when they pull their just a few hours ago. they noticed the tree was on fire. it was just completely orange. but they knew what they were doing thinking. they still had time without the tree collapsing. they parked their truck. they whipped out their hoses and they were about to put out the fire when all of a sudden the tree comes crashing down missing that firefighters and their truck by one. but they are breathing. this is no cliche. they are breathing a sigh relief and it says a lot for cool customers to go. >> thankfully we were not injured. let me show you video from the overnight hours as far as the fires you talked about multiple fires beginning at around 10 o'clock last
6:04 am
night. >> in areas that should not have a lot of people. it wasn't windy so they don't believe it was pg e power lines that came down in these areas. but they pounced on it. they surrounded the fires are contained with the biggest fire being about one and a half acres they are all scattered throughout the hillside here in healdsburg. >> just to see what's going on once the sun comes up, then they'll really see if they need to pounce. and at on it again, if there any hot spots. the good news is they're all contained. >> no structures were damaged or destroyed. nobody had to be evacuated or injured, but they don't need this drama, guys, because you know, these guys are running up and down from the major fires that they're here as well. they jumped on it. but this area so remote, you can see the power lines right in on top of us right here. but the power lines are intact. so you talked about james be on the lookout. not only that, be ready to evacuate. good thing is it
6:05 am
seems like all of the fires are under control at this particular time. but they could have been injured or not killed by the fires. try to get more video in between are hits. to hear firefighters, james and area to see them kind of rattled was a little jarring even for me annually and all right, ines, thank you very much. well. >> so we'll follow those fires are also following the elections coming up, the recall election. we are the headquarters for the group enough to get it or recall election just one week away now governor newsom is going to be in the bay area this morning campaigning against the recall saying vote no cropper. sara stinson live in san francisco. >> with the details. good morning, sarah. >> good morning. mail in ballots are starting to stack up. and as you said, with just one week until the governor recall election. governor gavin newsome. he's been hitting the campaign trail hard, trying to get that final push for votes getting democrats to vote at all is one of his biggest concerns
6:06 am
but it all this campaigning seems to be paying off. take a look at the latest survey by the california paul public policy institute shows about 58% of voters would vote no on the recall. 39% would vote yes to recall newsom. the survey also indicated 53% of people approve of how newsom is handling his job. and that's up from earlier in the year. also the number one issue voters care about is the pandemic. of course, governor newsom is not letting up over the weekend. governor newsome. he hosted rallies with us senators elizabeth warren and amy klobuchar last night. the governor and larry elder in los angeles campaign against each other. of course, to governor newsom attacking elders views an attempt to hold onto his job. >> he doesn't believe the minimum wage at all. he calls food stamps. a giveaway. at the same time he calls for eliminating the corporate tax in america. larry elder,
6:07 am
thanks. climate change is a quote, unquote, myth. he thinks it's a crock. this is not a republican takeover. this is a takeover from californians who are absolutely fed up. >> and with one week to go, governor newsom is putting in all the final stops, including calling in the vice president, kamala harris, one of our very own for support in the final days of the campaign. the 2 will be in the bay area tomorrow. together. now, a lot of republicans who do not trust mail in ballots. they'll be showing up to the polls on september 14th in droves. we can expect that. but just a heads up if you do plan a mailing in your ballot does need to be postmarked by election day. so you may as well get that ballot out of the drawer. you may have thrown it in. get it out as a reminder to get that vote counted for now reporting live in san francisco. sarah stinson dock to k. >> thnnk you very much, sir.

6:18 am
which is still eventually going to take place. but this high pressure ridge is staying in place with us. and that means that today as opposed to being anything. cooler is actually right around the same if not a little hotter than yesterday. now at the embarcadero right here. this is going to be one of your cooler spots. you can see out there to the east bay hills in the distance. really not talking a lot of marine layer this morning. we're looking at a southeasterly flow. generally into the bay area. and this is one of the reasons we're going to be so hot and also one of the reasons we're going to be so hazy wildfire smoke taking a long time to get here. it's being sent to the east down through utah. up their arizona and then back our direction as a part of the circulation around this high pressure ridge. so we are tapping into our own california wildfire. smoke by way of the great basin basically hazy conditions again today. does it have an impact on air quality or wildfire smoke. and we do have a spare the air alert in effect. it's good to moderate air quality across the bay area for your tuesday. not as bad as yesterday but still an
6:19 am
issue. if you have respiratory conditions as far as heat advisories go. we do have one that takes effect at noon up in solano county last till 08:00pm on thursday. rest of the bay area. no advisories just yet. but we do have the same heat advisories extending the length of the central valley. how hot will it be today will for san francisco. it's going to be a warm and comfortable day 60's and 70's 60's right along the coastline and then 70's and 80's along the bayshore certainly not bad along the bay but getting warmer redwood city 85 woodside at 91 south bay temperatures well into the 90's for many of us san jose at 90 degrees campbell at 93. and for those of us in the east bay. it's a wide range of either 70's from oakland to richmond to the triple digits in livermore danville, walnut creek and concord more triple digits in antioch, pittsburgh, fairfield and vacaville really taking the cake today at 106 degrees. you can see why solano county does have that heat advisory. now tomorrow's temperatures still hot as will be the case on thursday. we start to back up the heat on
6:20 am
friday and by saturday and sunday, we're really catching a break. some upper 80's to low 90's inland and 70's solidly returning to our bayshore cities. we also will have some haze sticking around through thursday likely improvements in air quality. from that point forward. thank you for that. we have some accidents to tell you about. unfortunately south san francisco, northbound one oh, one at oyster point boulevard. >> again, not seen much of a major delay along one oh, one or to 80. so things are still looking nice as you're traveling there down in the south bay northbound one o one de la cruz boulevard. and again, looking at highways, things are still pretty light out their lawn one on one heading into the city as you can see, traffic is building that is still under 30 minutes that things are moving by pretty quickly. as soon as you can get past the tolls there. also moving along pretty nicely for us a little under 14 minutes taking the san mateo bridge to make it across towards the peninsula and let's check on things here across the richmond. sandra fell commute a little under 9

6:26 am
a little longer. erin myers explains. >> health officials are saying that they need to submit more data to the fda before can be approved. so that could take into october those with weakened immune systems, though, can currently get the pfizer or moderna 3rd dose now. now, when it comes to the booster shot. the rollout is expected to be september 20th for pfizer. but moderna may be delayed by a week or 2. according to doctor anthony fauci, the president's chief medical adviser. >> companies must submit the appropriate information to the fda to get that approval first, we're not going to do anything unless gets the the appropriate fda regulatory approval. >> and then the recommendation from the advisory committee on immunization practices doctor fauci says the vaccine's efficacy does start to diminish. so a 3rd dose may turn out to be the proper regimen and that data out of israel shows booster doses offer profound protection against infection and hospitalization those with
6:27 am
weakened immune systems have been able to get that 3rd 28 days after their second. this new rollout would be for the general public with a 3rd dose being recommended 8 months after that second dose. >> now, when it was erin myers reporting and johnson and johnson is also studying a booster shot. but they say that their single shot vaccine is highly effective for at least 8 months. >> we'll take a break it's kron 4 morning news an update on some fatal crashes that happened in the bay area over the labor day weekend. chp to try to prevent that from happening in the future. and we'll talk more about that. >> and i'm will tran live in healdsburg where fire crews spent the overnight night hours rushing to about a dozen suspicious fires. coming up, we'll tell you how they

>> right now and wow, this is a beautiful shot. look at it. >> thank wall of >> mount tam camera showing is definitely that marine layer pushing through. that's why the golden gate look so a foggy it's stretching all the way out. looks like towards angel island, maybe even o. >> it looks a sudden it feels i felt kind of like still in a little stickier. something this morning. for e temperatures like this morning, john. so it's fairly mild. we've got some 70's for inland areas is wide range. we do have some really dry
6:31 am
conditions. but of course, then you also see that fog pushing in a couple of pockets too. so it's one of those bay area days. we're all just depends on exactly where you're at now, fogg is pretty limited. we've got that finger of its streaming right through the golden gate. if you saw in the distance from your mount tam shot. you can actually see some of the haze out there hovering right across the bay as well. that's very different from the fog that we have in the foreground and that view you look outside at our view of san francisco right now shows the sunshine up about we are seeing limited marine layer. but the pockets of it that we are seeing our very condensed in pretty dense this morning. so across the golden gate in a couple spots along the coastline. watch for some lower visibility areas. air quality is good to moderate today. and we do have conditions bad enough for a spare. the air alert to be back in effect if you felt a little irritated in the lungs and the as you've been breathing in that air. that is the reason why we've seen still some wildfire smoke impact across the day. even though conditions haven't been as bad as they once were 50's and 60's for most of our
6:32 am
current temperatures. but i did mention that 70 inland. pittsburgh. you're sitting right at 70 right now it's a mild start to this morning. hardly even need the jacket for a lot of the bay. i'm talking definitely not jacket where the weather this afternoon as we get some really hot conditions still to come in your forecast john, thanks for that traffic is building out there starting pick up as you're traveling from the east bay into the city right now. once you do hit the may's a little under 60 minutes for your drive time. so no major accidents loan is down there. just more traffic and more people going back to work and school. >> the richmond center fell commute a little under 9 minutes as you head out of richmond there. some accidents to tell you about like one in south san francisco northbound 1, one and oyster point boulevard. we're not seeing a major delay as a result of that accident along one. oh, one or to 80 and the south bay northbound want to wanna de la cruz boulevard. you see a little slowing behind that along one o one. but for the most part, the adjacent highways look great. we'll have more on your tuesday morning. commute. darya james,
6:33 am
back to you. thanks to laura. 6.32 and breaking news overnight in the north bay. multiple suspicious fires in heels bernier some reported that there may be 15 different fires that were. >> found burning people being warned to be on the lookout again, as daryn mentioned, suspicious, that's what they're saying. you know, let's go to kron. four's will tran in hillsborough can see why why these look suspicious. well. >> why is because they're happening in remote areas, especially when you're talking about the number i mean, we're running about 15 fires. i mean, one or 2, maybe, but 15 fires out of the blue at around the same time. that's why they think is suspicious. that still under investigation. this all happened within this facility. this is mill creek road and you can see the needle right behind me extreme fire conditions. they don't need anybody intentionally. they don't know yet. but let's just say it's intentional. they don't need that on their plate, especially with all the
6:34 am
wildfires that are happening in our state. this crew here. and i want to show you video. this crew is part about 4 miles from this location where i'm going to you live. the reason why we're here is because down the road, it is so remote this no internet. they pulled over late last night. they saw tree that was burning. the whole hillside was on fire, but specifically a tree that they wanted to put out. they stopped. they got out of their truck. all of a sudden the tree comes crashing down misses the fire truck and some of the firefighters by one. but so they're breathing a sigh relief. they're still there watching for any hot spots. here's video that we got in the overnight hours. this all these fires happened between 10 and say about 4 or 5 o'clock in the morning and some possibly could still be smoldering at this time. they're happening on the hillsides. fortunately, they're all contained. james and the biggest fire was about
6:35 am
one and a half acres. nobody had to be evacuated. now that the sun is coming up. they will get a little bit closer to see what's going on. they're worried about hot spots, but there is a little bit of good luck on their side. one is that they were killed by that falling tree. 2 is that they don't believe this was caused by any pg e power line. you can see the power line right above me, everything seems to be intact and get this. it is not windy. look at the trees. look at the leaves. nothing is swaying back and forth so all these fires that are happening. if it was windy, it could have been disaster. we are in an area where there's a vineyard right behind me. so could have been had people evacuated could have injured people. but fortunately no evacuations, no injuries and no structures damaged. it a bullet definitely this time sank in. i was close. all right. thanks a lot. well. >> and continuing our wildfire coverage. we have the bridge fire burning near the city of auburn up in placer county.
6:36 am
it's now grown to 400 acres in size a little bit more than that. 15 1% contained so far. and the good news is firefighters say they've been able to stop all forward progress of that fire evacuation orders are still in effect, though, and firefighters say that there at this point is no immediate threat to structures. the one firefighter did suffer minor injuries but was able to return to the front lines. >> a timeline video is now. >> now let's continue on with our fire coverage. crews are battling the caldor fire. still, they made a lot of progress. so far it has burned 216,000 acres and destroyed 700 home. yeah. it's now 40% contained. so they're nearly halfway there despite the progress, though, the fire fight is far from over dennis shanahan with the latest. >> along highway 88 in the kirkwood area. firefighters have made good progress. but hot spots continue to challenge containment lines. to put out this flareup crews pulled along hose line from a
6:37 am
water tender parked on the highway. firefighters are working and living in these woods. we have folks out here campaign and the wilderness at night. >> with or without tense there eat memories. their drinking water out of their canteens. >> and many of those who aren't putting out flames are working on the forest floor with hand tools, building containment lines and. bringing down the street. some of the burning in this area is controlled firefighters have set back burns. well, weather conditions are favorable. >> and the goal is to eliminate all byrne fields to eliminate future flare ups in this area and then we can get in off that app and extinguish it. firefighters have largely kept the flames on the north side of highway 88. they have not reached the resort destinations of silver lake and kirkwood. but they are creeping close to caples lake. >> we saw 3 helicopters dropped utilizing type one helicopters. >> and in several of these
6:38 am
pockets to to keep those flare ups checks to buy us time to either go in and do direct hand like construction around there or just buy us time in general. the figure out what the appropriate course of action is dennis shanahan fox 40 news. >> and we have new information on the crash that killed an 1816 year-old over the weekend according to the chp, the driver of the car, the truck them colby sharper was driving under the influence when he hit and killed the teams who are walking on the road. it happened on byron highway in the town of nights and this is a memorial that was set up for the victims there at the crash site that was just one of several serious crashes that happened over the holiday weekend. there was another one early yesterday morning in which someone going the wrong way on interstate 80 hit several cars and killed a woman. the chp says the wrong-way driver was eric stever sen. he tried running away but was found on a bike path and arrested on suspicion of drunk driving chp, san francisco division officer mark andrews says that they are trying to stop these types
