10:01 pm
are still a city of second chances, but we have to draw the line with people who choose to continually commit crime. brooke jenkins is san francisco's new district attorney. good evening . i'm julie julie haener savage . she's a former prosecutor who left her job to lead the recall effort against her former boss chaser boudin. we get live coverage tonight from ktvu elissa harrington with what jenkins says will be her top priorities in office. alyssa that's right. the person replacing chasing boudin is also one of his biggest critics. jenkins said that she is committed to restoring justice and accountability in san francisco. we are a city of second chances, but the truth is, we have to draw a line with people who choose hate violence in a life of crime. brooke jenkins, a former prosecutor and now the newest district attorney of san francisco, promised to reform the criminal justice system in a city that, she said
10:02 pm
is at the tipping point. jenkins said. many san franciscans don't feel safe and assured consequences for violent and repeat offenders. we also know that we have to end the existence. open air drug markets in our city, and that will be one of my top priorities. jenkins said she would enforce drug crimes on day one and would hold those who commit hate crimes accountable. asian community can no longer continue to live in fear. of being attacked simply because of who they are, as they go about their daily lives in this city mayor london breed appointed jenkins as the new d a to replace chaser boudin, who was ousted in a recall election. jenkins has been in attorney for 15 years and served as the prosecutor in boudin's office. she quit her position late last year and became one of the leaders of the recall campaign against her former boss. she sacrificed her career. to fight. for people in this city. to fight for victims
10:03 pm
who needed a voice in this city . i think it comes as a bit of a surprise that one of the people that was a very central figure in the recall was the choice supporters like christine soto deberry, his former chief of staff and the founder of prosecutors alliance, said she's hopeful jenkins will embrace reform. it gives me a bit of pause on some of the areas where she has expressed wanting to roll back reform. um, issues like cash fail and, um approaches to some of the more challenging issues. this is a slap in the face to everybody who has worked on reform former police commissioner and recall opponent john hamasaki is concerned jenkins will focus on putting people in prison. he called her appointment to d, a missed opportunity and an insider pick, aligned herself with the police union and the republicans and the recall. it also called for a return to policies of mass incarceration.

10:14 pm
subway keeps refreshing and refreshing and refreshi- it's in custody tonight after admitting to starting a small fire in truckee this afternoon.
10:15 pm
this prompted an evacuation order after it started burning east of the truckee airport. that fire, though, is holding tonight at about 12 acres. the electric fire in the sierra foothills has now grown to be california's second biggest wildfire of the season. so far, some evacuation orders have been lifted for people in amador county, but they do remain in effect for people in neighboring calipari's county. this fire has burned more than 4200 acres along highway 49 near the city of jackson, and tonight it is 60% contained efforts to set backfires to keep flames from spreading seemed to be working. so far. no homes have been destroyed in this fire, and no injuries have been reported joining us now to talk more about this fire, and the overall fire season is cal fire public information officer robert foxworthy joining us by phone tonight, robert really appreciate the time. thank you for coming on. let's start first on the electric fire here, as we said one of the largest fires so far this season. you're getting
10:16 pm
good containment so far. what are the key factors that have allowed those crews to get the upper hand on this fire? so yeah , we're up to 60% contained as of this evening, and it's been really hard work put in by those ground crews that have been able to get those numbers up. um we've been seeing some smoke coming off the fire today and majority of that is actually been coming from some firing operations. basically crews are in there, um, using fire. to burn out some pockets of green fuel to basically strengthen those lines and get that actual what we call black line or burned out area. a little bit larger, so we don't have that chance of fire, basically running towards our lines and jumping those containment lines that we have. so that's what kind of been helping us and i would say a lot of it is influenced by the weather. we've
10:17 pm
had some cooler temperatures higher relative humidities that have given the crews the ability to get in there and fight that fire really favorable conditions. we know that recently, cal fire has really shifted its approach when it comes to fighting fires like this one from the air, and i did see a tweet from cal fire that last night, cal fires fire hawk helicopter was doing its first ever night flying operation on the electric fire. this is a big breakthrough here in terms of fighting these fires and being able to do it after dark. how much of a difference does this make for cal fire? i would say this is a huge step in in this direction. obviously to this point. we've never had the ability to do this and basically giving us all of those nighttime hours to put additional drops on fire. is huge. historically the evening and those later nighttime hours is when the fire activity usually decreases, and
10:18 pm
those crews were able to get into some of those areas. so having the ability to also use aircraft to drop water is huge moving forward, especially when those fires break out late in the day, and you want to really jump on them. we know that we are now in what we have traditionally come to know as peak fire season. obviously, things have really shifted. here in california in the last few years, but it we're in the summer months, the trees in the brush or dryer now based on what we've seen so far in terms of wildfires. what what are the expectations that cal fire for? have these next few months are going to play out in terms of the severity of the fires were likely to see. so obviously predicting what's going to happen is incredibly difficult. we can never say how many fires were actually going to have start, but we can predict some of those conditions. and as we're seeing now, and what's predicted for the next few months is that those conditions are going to continue to dry out
10:19 pm
and the chance for us to have those significant, larger fires will also increase as those fuels continue to dry out through the summer. so i would expect that that potential will go up over the next few months. so obviously yes, this is why we go out to the public and tell them now is the time to be ready and get prepared. because now is when we will see those, uh, increases in fire activity. it could be a tough couple of months coming up here really appreciate the time tonight, cal fire public information officer. robert foxworthy. thank you for coming on. thank you. as fire season heats up pg and he knows it's under the watchful eyes of government officials and its customers. many want pg you need to become a public property and accused the utility of negligence because of fire sparked by faulty equipment. ktvu is tom baker tells us about the latest push for more accountability. more agreed. we
