8:04 am
obviously firefighters are going to be on hand for the rest of the day today. stamping out any hot spots that might still be burning in the rubble and evacuation orders are still in place. not going to let anybody near this neighborhood. look at the size of some of these houses near the senate labor hoods until they know for sure that it's safe. let's go to carlos herrera for the latest. >> it really is heartbreaking to see the devastation and destruction caused by the coastal fire. this gated community, the car, not a point in laguna niguel got by far the biggest impact you can see one of the more than 20 homes that were either damaged or destroyed. this one here, just the front part of it still standing. still some hot spots burning and some embers flying around as well. just to give you clear perspective of what's going on here with this fire. many homes right next door also damaged or destroyed. here's one of them. take a look. you can see this one here. burned to the ground. nothing left of this. we've seen some firefighters focusing on this home in another one next door to try
8:05 am
put out these hot spots are big concern here today is those embers flying? right across the street sparking other fires at near by holmes. i spoke with a firefighter just a few moments ago. he says it's incredible to think that this small vegetation fire caused this much impact because the winds weren't as bad as they expected. but still cause such a big destruction in this area. what started? as a small but haitian fire yesterday afternoon and at least a wood canyon just east of laguna beach exploded in size in just a few hours. the coast of meyer has now burned nearly 200 acres. the flames fueled by strong coastal winds that roared up hillsides and over fire breaks at least 20 multimillion dollar homes have been destroyed or damaged. many of them burned to the ground. also, some vehicles have been destroyed. the city
8:06 am
of laguna beach has now proclaimed a local emergency and evacuation order now in place for parts of laguna niguel. you can see this firefighter here putting out the hot spots at this home, which we showed you just a few moments ago. the big concern is that this take a look across the street. homes that appear to be okay. no damage, no destruction. so they don't want these embers to spark fly across. and damaged these homes that are still standing. as of now, we do know at the fire remains under investigation in terms of what caused it. and there are no injuries to be reported. i'm carlos that i'll send it back to you guys. 8, 0, 6. and happening today, the 2 people charged with kidnapping a 3 month-old baby in san jose are back in court. >> jose por and yesenia ramirez face multiple charges including home invasion and kidnapping. they're accused of taking the child baby. brandon quay are from his grandmother who was and her home and she

8:08 am
probably spent 20 or 30 grand trying to make it harder for these guys to get in. and somehow each time into it and you know, they're good or what this so to another business owner today, they have someone drive stolen eufaula track through the front of their building to get in. >> so problems and fat for that reason. the families organized a meeting now with city leaders and some of the other shop owners to talk about solutions. that meeting is set for monday. the 16th and it will be held there at their store and a layup. >> i was awful. and no much better game play promises. that really the better friday. tomorrow is their next game. and that's when they could be headed to the western conference finals. if they can finally to specially the grizzlies who all them yesterday say doing better should be an easy task because the bar set after that last game. it was kind of embarrassing to watching. those are my words. those are the words of like steph curry and klay thompson. >> kron four's will tran is

standing by live in the city reacting as well this morning. and will are you still in the upset phaser? he moved on to acceptance and we're moving forward and he the stages of grief air. >> warriors fans, i have to say they probably are happy to be where they are because they could have easily lost game 4 at the chase center. they were down most of the 4th quarter and then came back and in game 5, the memphis grizzlies, they mauled the warriors. i mean, who were those guys on the court? they should be charged with impersonating nba players. and i think they when to that, forget about looking at game film, shout out to our co-worker josh reed. they should just burn that game film. but for the state sake of posterity, we want to show our fans exactly what happened. and it was not pretty from the very beginning. the grizzlies led pretty much from beginning to end. at one point they were up. 55 points. the warriors midway through the 3rd quarter down. 46 points.
8:10 am
>> klay thompson and the rest of the starters simply pulled at that point. why risk injury when they know it was just a laughable game for them? they showed up. they had barbecue in memphis, which is famous for barbeque and blues and then just got back on the plane waking up this morning back in the bay area heading to practice and scratching their heads wondering what truck hit them at fedexforum klay thompson, steph curry. the rest of the gang say we will remember this, but we will also forget about game 5. >> playoff us know who prepared for anything short memory. still in control of the series. you know, to date on we playoffs and saying, you always say it's not just going to go in on this because you have to understand that just as we have to there's my physicality. protecting the by and possessions. we'll be into this state.
8:11 am
>> they had better be in good shape because if they lose game 6 is back to game 7 in memphis and they will lose home-court advantage. the warriors, i mean, they can say they want, but they should have won that game, especially with the grizzlies, not having their best player on the court. john morant. i mean, he's from pretty much done for the rest of the series because of a bone bruise. no watch party because the game is at the chase center tomorrow. hopefully the warriors will show up because if not, we'll have to pack their bags and head back the memphis. back back to you. all right. thank you. well, >> it's 8.11. and still ahead on the kabul morning news governor newsom is adding to plan to protect abortion rights in california. we'll tell you what he is going to do. and president biden to try to help farmers struggling because of inflation. he's on the road. we'll check in with him on tour and get a live report on the latest. plus, after the break, san francisco schools are going to be recognizing juneteenth as an official school district holiday. and today going to be a nice one. our last of the
