in the north bay there is new life for a former restaurant owned by bay area rocker sammy hager. last summer abc7 news reported on the sudden shutdown of his restaurant el paseo in mill valley. a note on the door from hager said after seven years running the restaurant became too time consewoling. well, tonight we've learned that space will reopen as paseo, a california bistro in the fall. the original bates back to 1947. a san francisco couple is fighting eviction. while that's a story you heard many times before, the details in this case certainly make it unique. they live in a house, really actually called a mansion, that's what it is, former iranian consulate building on the corner of washington and walnut streets in the presidio heights neighborhood. last year business insider ranked this as san francisco's most expensive neighborhood with the median sale price of nearly $4.5 million. you're getting a look at the area from droneview7 here in a moment. but right now let's turn to abc7
6:09 pm
news anchor kumasi aaron to explain why the tenants are now facing eviction. kumasi. >> reporter: well, the government says this house needs $5 million worth of repairs and that has to be covered by rent. but check this out. the couple living here, they're only paying $5500 a month. so the government decided to put the house on the market and that meant they had to leave. from droneview7 it looks like just another multi-million dollar house in presidio heights. but this is where alexandra and bru bruce owen have lived for 35 years. they are facing eviction. >> they lived there 42 years, raised their kids there, leave it empty for what? >> reporter: the attorney is helping the couple stay in the thome they rented since 1984. it used to be the iranian consulate which means iran owns it, but the u.s. state department takes care of it. in 2018, a government inspector found the mansion needed $5
6:10 pm
million in repairs. those repairs have to be covered by rent, but the house was rent controlled and the couple was paying roughly $5,500 a month. >> this house needs a caretaker. so instead of charging them rent they ought to be paying them to look after the place in my view. >> reporter: the neighbor doesn't understand why the government decided to take the property off the market and leave it empty. >> i thought that the state department had kind of gotten things out of kilter. there really isn't any particular reason they need to free this house up. it is not like the iranians are going to come back and open the consulate again. >> it is a massive house. >> reporter: we asked real estate agent matt what the house could fetch. >> if it was all fixed up, it could easily rent out for 25, $30,000 per month, probably more than that. >> reporter: the government gave the owens roughly $11,000 and asked them to leave by june of this year, but they haven't. and despite this lawsuit, they have no plans to. >> my intention is they're going to stay forever. >> reporter: and the attorney
6:11 pm
told me the only way the couple can be forcibly removed from this house is if they lose this case. but neighbors here tell me they fear if that happens, squatters may end up here instead. in presidio heights, kumasi aaron, abc7 news. >> kumasi, thank you. >> popularity and privacy, a lot of people are giving up the latter for the former. >> they really are. the lessons we're learning from face app and why it's worth it to read the fiern print for any app you download on your phone. >> pg&e is turning off the power when fire danger gets too high. it's not just people buying generators. east bay says it needs a back up power source, too. >> i'm spencer christian. get ready

stocks shook off early losses and closed mostly higher on wall street. the diaw ended up with a 3-point gain. the nasdaq saw a 22 point boost. netflix sank after reporting a drop in subscribers. privacy watch dogs and security analysts have kbn ringing the alarm bells over face app which alters your pictures which alters you to look older, younger, more glamorous. i'm sure you've seen it. to use the app you have to give up all sorts of the rights to your photo. it is not the only app to do this. abc reporter chris reyes has what to look out when if comes to your privacy. >> it's getting more frequent for apps to overstep your rights. thank you grant for a specific purpose for that data, they'll use it for other things and you have no idea what's happening. so it's getting worse and worse
6:15 pm
unfortunately. >> reporter: let's face it, this is an urge many haven't been able to resist. 150 million people in fact, a approximate tally how many times face app has been downloaded around the world. and every person who downloaded the app, okayed a terms of service that basically lets the app use your photo any time anywhere forever. but despite the sudden alarm bells around face app, there are many apps that do this. the question now is do you know what to look out for? this is will. he's the ceo of guardian app. we asked him for a list of red flags when downloading app. >> if you see the location cater on your phone going off frequently, if you're using a photo app, you select a photo and see some type of loading when it asks -- an app asks for permission to access some sort of data and it says something about either analytics or shows in there see privacy policy, that's a red flag. it means you should be looking in that privacy policy because something strange is there. the last thing is just honesty
6:16 pm
on the developer part. if they're saying how they're processing data, what they're doing with it, if they're up front and can be held accountable to that, that's a lot more trustworthy than if a developer says nothing about it. >> reporter: security experts like will suggest if you check the privacy setting on your phone at least once a week to keep tabs on the app on access to your content. khris reyes, abc7 news. >> pg&e has warned us about preemptive shut offs. they'll shut down the grids when fires get too risky. we'll keep our cell phones charged, but there are vital pieces of equipment that need a back up power source as well. abc7 news reporter leslie brinkley is in lafayette. there is a bigger picture here. >> reporter: there absolutely is. part of that bigger picture is research released earlier this week saying that the bay area is going to have more 100-pls degree days coming and that means more fires.
6:17 pm
it means more outages. and it means all of us have to be more prepared, including east bay mud. pg&e has warned of preemptively c cutting off power on high-risk fire days. that puts he east bay mud in a bind. they need water to pump to uphill tanks to serve emergency responders. some pump stations have back up generators, others do not. east bay mud is spending $400,000 to rent 29 portable generators for prime fire season from august through november so they can keep water flowing. >> we will be notifying customers who are affected by east bay mud facilities within a pg&e power outage area and what we will be doing is asking them to cut back their water use so that we have enough water available, not just for their community, but importantly for firefighters. >> reporter: the rented generators are being set up now from berkeley to moraga and orinda to san ramon.
6:18 pm
meanwhile, homeowners are buying up generators of their own. >> lately we've been getting a bigger rush on generators versus last year just with preparation last year with the fires, the rolling blackouts. it's been very busy down this area. >> reporter: at this low storing concord, they have a steady flow of customers buying gasoline powered back up generators enough to keep a refrigerator or portable a.c. running. it requires 3,000 watts and costs over $500. the increasing number of hot days are also leading to a spike in calls to contractors like steven rivers who's been in business here for 40 years. >> more and more, everyone who does not have air conditioning is interested in getting it now. >> reporter: and it is expensive to add air conditioning or to buy a back up generator. but perhaps some people say they're no longer luxuries. they view them as necessities.
6:19 pm
