>> we're back at 8.15, the risk of fires as we know is going up here in the bay. area's temperatures are rising and we're getting deeper into summer. a lack of rain and the gusty winds make it easy for those fires to start on kron four's will tran is live in the south bay. he's been talking about that all morning. good morning. well, >> not windy right now, but the temperature is certainly climbing and will continue to climb and look over my right shoulder in front of a cal fire station. you can see that sign. it is moderate. i've seen it high fire danger in the past. but santa cruz, the south bay at this particular point classified as moderate.
8:16 am
no red flag warning, but they dodged a major bullet over the weekend and not just this particular area, but let's face it. most of the bay area and most of california. now we've seen fires break out of the past several weeks, if not months, it was a fire in san ramon. we've seen many fires on highway 4 in next to pittsburgh, the santa cruz mountains. they have their own issues over the weekend. in fact, yesterday afternoon, the fire broke out in an area that was so remote that they actually had to bring in a helicopter. they threw everything that they possibly could at it. >> including a bulldozer. by the time it was over. fortunately, it was only one and a half acres. nobody was injured. no structure, not down or destroyed because of the fire, but this area is particularly sensitive because of what happened over the past several years. last year, a fire broke out that forced mass evacuations, particularly
8:17 am
in the scotts valley area. so they're well aware that cal fire is also well aware. that's starting tomorrow through july. and let's face it. it is fire year, not fire season in california, but technically on the books starting tomorrow through july. it's the beginning of the peak fire season. we have already seen hundreds of fires across the state. fortunately, other than that orange county fire that we've covered over the past several weeks. other than that, there has not been a spectacular fire so far. but we know it's just a matter of time, especially with the dry conditions. low humidity. fortunately, it is not windy, but it just takes one spark, especially in a high what good area for that fire to go from ridge to ridge. so santa cruz, santa cruz mountains, scotts valley area, they most certainly dodged a major bullet over the weekend. >> just the truth, right? yes, thank you. will in his will
