they don't agree on much, they can agree on one thing. it should be a great series. come back. as far as baseball rivalries go, it's tough to find one deeper than the one between the san francisco giants in the los angeles dodgers. now fans will get to watch the teams in their first ever playoff matchup, and giants fans say even with 107 wins this past season when it comes to the playoffs. it's a whole new ballgame. it's always tough when you're up against the dodgers. i mean, come on biggest rivals. we're just hoping for the win while the debate will play out over the national league division series over who is the better team? there is one thing that giants fans and dodger fans can agree on. this is going to be a tough best of five series. it's all about the dodgers for me. i think it's gonna. be a great series, but in my heart with the dog, but the giants have a way of winning over fans even when they don't seem like they back the black and orange where you from los angeles. whoa wait a second. you're from where?
5:01 pm
los angeles, california and you're a giants fan. yeah you know, they're playing the dodgers. yeah while it may be tough, giants fans say when the series is all over, it will be the giants headed to the national league championship series and eventually, the world series. even if that means they have to go through the dodgers to get their stuff, but i mean the giants they kept up with them all season. they won the series against them, and hopefully these are the games. that really matter, so hopefully they're able to come out with what the w against the dodgers. while this is the first official playoff matchup between the giants and dodgers twice once in 1951 and again in 1962 of the dodgers and giants into their seasons tied and played three game series. those games were entered into the record books as regular season games. and for the record, the giants won both of those three game tiebreaker series. so giants are hoping to make it three times. lucky relies in san francisco christian captain ktvu box to new and whoever wins this series will have bragging rights for years, even
5:02 pm
decades to come, christian. thank you for that, like report. and we've heard from the fans. now. what about the teams? the giants and dodgers had the two best records in baseball this year, and ktvu is jason appelbaum joins us live from inside oracle park historic dramatic matchup. so what do you seeing their inside and i can tell us about what we're going to see with the games. yeah janna. what i'm seeing is the fans are starting to file in here. the energy is starting to pick up a little. we're still about oh, i'd say an hour and a half from first pitch, but it's a little crips. so if you grab your jacket if you're coming out to the ballgame here as we take a look, the dodgers are on the field. the giants were working out about 45 minutes ago taking batting practice, but now it is. the dodgers, and this is probably and i don't think i'm exaggerating the most anticipated division series and history. the two best teams in baseball the to a great extent. tonight will be about which team and which pitcher handles
5:03 pm
the pressure better and on the mound for the giants will be 24 year old right hander logan webb, who has probably been the giants most consistent starter all season long. he's a rockland native. drafted by the giants in 2000 and 14 so he's home grown, and this year was kind of his coming out party 11 3 with a 3.3 e r a and you've got to like this three and oversees the dodgers. he just #### pitch this last sunday and the regular season finale being the padres to clinch the national league west division title. so tonight we'll make two huge starts in a span of six days for web. you know, talking to other guys, you almost have to treat like just another start. um even though it's not, and that's what i try to do for the last game, and you know it wasn't the same when i came off the mount the first inning and. the crowd was screaming and yelling. everyone's on the feet like i could just kind of feel my like.
5:04 pm
heartbeat gone and kind of my hand shaking a little bit. um, you know, that's that's pretty cool. it's um. something that i've kind of dreamed about feeling for a long time. i definitely think will be even more amped up for sure this next one so excited for that. yes don't be fooled by his located demeanor yesterday in that press conference. he's got ice water in his veins. his teammates say he's very even keeled and his approach is perfect for this game, so we'll see. and here's a good little stat for you. my producer cam cleveland, says that the giants have won all 12 starts. that logan web has made here in this stadium so i don't want to jinx it or anything, but they have not lost with logan web when he starts a game here, uh at the stadium. janna it's gonna be fun. absolutely and i am a firm believer in lucky 13. so let's hope that he can do that tonight. thanks jason. i like it. well if it isn't home runs
5:05 pm
and strikeouts, bringing you to the city this weekend. maybe it's a big military ships and air shows today the annual parade of ships to police right here we were there, some of them passed underneath the golden gate bridge. it's a great show every year. those ships that made their way to their peers. it is a largest parade of ships on the west coast. there were ships from the us navy, coast guard and army corps of engineers, and this afternoon. it was the first of three air shows we saw parachute teams, stunt pilots and, of course, this right here. the stars of the show the blue angels. you might have also caught a glimpse of the earth show if you were around the bay area this afternoon if you missed it. don't worry, they'll all be back again in the sky tomorrow and on sunday as well. well this weekend is on track to be the busiest in san francisco since the start of the pandemic, along with fleet week events along the embarcadero and the giants playoff game, the warriors are playing the lakers a chase center seven o'clock tonight. and the italian heritage parade is this sunday in the north
5:06 pm
beach neighborhood. that means a lot of people a lot of traffic, so authorities are encouraging people to take public transit. we are running extra trains, express shuttles to get people to and from the ballparks and we are increasing service for people heading down the embarcadero going to fisherman's worth as well. and if you decide to take munich or bart, mass are required, you should also know if you are driving parking meters around the city. well, they'll be set to special event rates $8 an hour. san francisco businesses have been waiting for a weekend like this, with big events, bringing tens of thousands of people into the city every day. there's hope it will be a financial win for some of these places that took huge losses during the pandemic. our ktvu s reporter. tom vacar spoke with business owners and joins us live now from san francisco with how they're preparing tom. wolf for san francisco small business. this could quite literally be the biggest and
5:07 pm
the best and the most profitable weekend since the beginning of the pandemic. friday was busy but not jammed in the city on the first day of the blue angels fleet week performances after thursday's dress rehearsal, we heard the jets roaring over the city yesterday, which. gave everybody the chills saturday and sunday looked to be quite a more crowded affair with the super jets, spectacular ships and the boys of october. the ballpark plus a whole lot more. we're very excited about having a normal normalized feeling around here, seeing lots of people out here. we've had action down here in spurts over the course of the past few months in the past year, but. no two events. i don't think i've come together like the giants and, uh, fleet week so we're excited. the crowds will want food and drink and souvenirs in the city that has lost 45% of its small businesses. according to a late july city report. even on fisherman's warf. most places
5:08 pm
are open. a significant percentage are not so crowds will have fewer places serving them, putting pressure on the ones still open. those who have survived say there is ready as they can be such as sabella and low tory seafoods on fisherman's warf. and perry's on the embarcadero. we're not too concerned about it. we believe we can handle anything that comes at us. especially getting through this pandemic, so the more the merrier for us returning to previous revenue is not necessarily something that were built for right now. and so you have to. you know, you might have to make people wait. even if you have space, you know, and that's it's it goes against human nature and the nature of our business. but in order to you know, do what we do properly sometimes you have to hold back a little bit all of this presenting the best reason so far for businesses to hope for a real upturn. we've seen a lot of, um, requests for company. happy hours, come back and in the coming weeks and months. which is a great sign if people are coming back to work. now of course, there will be pop up food stands and of
5:09 pm
course trucks. all of that should get people through. but it's still likely to be crowded. so the most important thing is to try to be nice and patient. to yourself to your friends to your servers, everybody. tom vacar ktvu fox two news. we all could use a little kindness. that's true. thanks so much, tom. and we want to show you a look at traffic right now that's heading into the city during the afternoon commute today, this is video that's coming from a camera at the bay bridge toll plaza. if you do have tickets to the giants or warriors games and haven't crossed the bay yet, you might consider bart or fairies as your best bet as things downtown are sure to get very congested in the coming hours. well the fan running onto the field taking a swing at a player. it was just a hint of what was to come later in the night tonight at 5 30 what they said was the earthquakes and stadium security are doing following a postgame brawl and a shooting in the parking lot.

5:12 pm
5:13 pm
of orange county. the coast guard said this afternoon that the pipeline might have been hit by a ship's anchor several months to one year before the leak was detected over the weekend. underwater video, released by the coast guard shows the section of pipe that was pulled along the ocean floor. a second video shows the 13 inch crack in the pipe. the coast guard gave details on the timeline in a press conference this afternoon. we're confident that back in october 2020. the pipeline was intact and it was as it was surveyed by the company. we have gps coordinates that show the pipeline was on station at that time. since october. 2025 point has deflected 105 ft and the we have casing damage and then, of course, the crack that occurred since that over the course of that year. the coast guard says they will pour over data from the past year to see when the initial damage might have occurred and what ship may have
5:14 pm

5:15 pm
scale in the bay area. tesla is the latest and possibly n t in r in whole to move from the bay area. hp and oracle have also moved their headquarters to texas headquarters. costs are clearly higher here than they are. um in lots of other places, so it's a very sensible thing for him to be moving to texas for their headquarters, strategic management professor dr robert chapman woods says costs related to housing and regulations are the two biggest factories for companies pulling up stakes, and that's too big hurdles for tesla. which vies to be the largest car manufacturer in the world. tesla will maintain and expand production here at its fremont plant, and there's a published report saying it's going to lease over 300,000 square feet of office space in palo alto. most tesla employees will not have to relocate to austin, texas. california governor. gavin newsom says tesla's departure does not know the gleam of the golden state. i'm
5:16 pm
proud of the fact that we maintained our status with over a quarter. of the nation's unicorns being located in headquarter here in california. those are the next teslas, experts say. while that's true, the departures do indicate silicon valley needs to operate differently in the days and years ahead. if these things are not taken as a wake up call, it could get worse. and we certainly don't want to see that happen in fremont, jesse gary ktvu, fox two news. recently other companies have also moved headquarters from the bay area to austin, including hewlett packard, oracle survey software firm question pro and file trial, a software company that was in san jose. marin county is easing its mask mandate in limited indoor settings with fewer than 100 people that could apply to gyms, offices, religious meetings and college classes. in order to qualify for the exemption from the mask mandate. organizers must verify that everyone entering is locato

5:43 pm
hero faces seemingly impossible challenge. ♪ tension builds... ♪ the plot twist. ♪ the hero prevails. in hollywood, this would be the end. but our here, we are just getting started. introducing the all-new nissan frontier. but our here, we are just getting started. guard rang a bell 24 times an honors each person who died during the 2017 north be wildfires today marks four years since the start of the deadly and destructive tubbs fire along with the 24 people killed, the firestorm destroyed 5300 homes in sonoma county and
5:44 pm
burned 173 square miles. we're here this morning to remember. to remember the lives that were lost and the thousands of people who were so deeply impacted. to remember the bravery of our first responders and everyone who came to our aid and to remember the generosity that the world showed to santa rosa economic county. in santa rosa about 2000 of the homes destroyed by the fire have been rebuilt and 380 are under construction now. and joining us now to reflect on the four years since the devastating tubbs fire. santa rosa fire chief scott west rope thank you so much for taking time to join us today. thank you for having me. i wanted to start off and ask you what is the biggest memory that you have from that fire that has has really stayed with you over all these years. i appreciate that. it's a great question and something i addressed with our personal recently and for me. the biggest memory that sticks with me is unity. um it was the unity of the community who was
5:45 pm
the unity of the organization. it was unity community of the region, whether it was the fire service law enforcement military, right, every kid. the case may be. it was. the unification of that event as tragic as it was really brought this community together and that really is carried on through the last four years and remains today. and so to me, that's that's the biggest thing that i take away from. that is how i brought everybody together, and we showed as a community and as an organization. we can tackle anything together. we can climb any mountain together and we can. um we can apply that any lesson in life is that is that we're stronger together. and it was inspiring to see both at ceremony and also the ways in which things are being rebelled. thousands of homes destroyed i'm wondering where there any lessons from battling the tubbs fire that you've been able to incorporate into the santa rosa fire departments, firefighting approach and response. absolutely. i would say that. you know, this really goes
5:46 pm
across the fire service in general and sonoma county. it's not santa rosa specific only because it takes all of us to, um to handle these kinds of incidents, but we've done a lot of things differently within the city. we obviously have now a very entrenched and robust vegetation management program. so. not only is it us, but it's our surrounding neighbors, and so it's slowing the spread of the fire potential fire that would come into the community. operationally i say the biggest changes we've made our we've changed our business model. we're no longer a urban fire department that goes well, then hires on occasion. sonoma county is now. you know there's wildfires here, and so we have to change our business model. the way that we equipment staff our personnel and attack these fires. and then really the biggest catalyst change has been communication and coordination among state convention amongst agencies. it's always been very good, but it's very robust and much better now, and, um you know whether it's a text message or phone call or video conference. we're always on the same page or always moving in the same
5:47 pm
direction. let's turn to infrastructure now within $70 million in damages that happened as a result of that tubbs fire as the rebuilding process led to any improvements in the infrastructure and homes in terms of fire, readiness or prevention. absolutely so it took. where where homes that were in the wild inter interface that were pre existing non conforming to while then urban interface building standards, and now they are built to that standard. and even outside of the wildland urban interface, there are there's a lot of citizens who are rebuilding their homes, or, um, whether it's the infrastructure or a county infrastructure rebuilding to be more fire safe and more more fire already. and then not only those who are impacted by the fire, but those who were not impacted by the fire. um have made those changes as well. so we've really done a lot of, um public education campaign work to make sure that everybody's on the same page and that we're all using the same information. but
5:48 pm
it takes all community approach to get there. and i'm definitely seeing a major change in the way that people build homes, rebuild homes or retrofit what they already have. and from a community standpoint, are there any resources that support that you'd like to see from the state or federal government to help fire departments such as yours as we're seeing these long fire seasons continue. absolutely and the federal state government have been fantastic as far as i'm helping with resources to rebuild the fire station we lost during the tubbs fire, um, to help the community rebuild. and so it's been. it's been a great partnership with the state and federal government. um, as we move forward, obviously, we have a lot of our local state legislators in federal legislators who are working with us and were entranced with them more than we ever happened for before, um, to make catalyst changes in both wildfire management, wildfire and forestry. improvements and protection and then moving standards forward so we can we have legislative space
5:49 pm
home hardening and vegetation, management things like that. finally i just want to ask if you have any closing, thought anything you hope people are reflecting on as they think about this four year anniversary. i thought about. i thought about that and figured it would be a question that you would have and what i told her personnel and a and my message to them recently was just take a moment to pause. take a moment to reflect and remember and really. you know the way we operate this business on a day to day basis is we don't want this to happen again. we don't want any lives to be lost. we don't need properties to be lost. ultimately mother nature is going to have her say in the matter, but. it takes everybody to get there. so take a moment today to tomorrow or over the weekend deposit reflect. remember the lives that were lost. remember the, um those who lost their homes or family members who lost their homes? and let none of that go in vain learned from it, the better from it as a person as an
5:50 pm
employee of the fire department as a member of the community, whatever the case may be, is take a moment and let none of that be in vain. and so as the greater good we can all be better and prevent this from happening in this community, other communities. and certainly a message that applies not just in santa rosa has certainly to all of us as californians. santa rosa fire chief scott westbrook. thank you so much and thanks to your fire crews out there still continuing to do that good work. thank you very much. well on that topic. we have a fire weather watch that is already been listed for the monday tuesday timeframe. we'll talk about that in the extended forecast. let's talk about what is happening outside our doors right now because we may actually experience a few scattered showers getting into tonight and through tomorrow morning. there's a beautiful view into the city where we do have a nice golden golden sky. we had plenty of blue sky overhead. today we had temperatures way below average, and we breezy conditions that continue at this hour. meanwhile temperatures at this

families and workers whose financial security would be jeopardized by delayed payments. the us flirted with the default a decade ago, congress hiked the debt ceiling before the deadline, but the drama spooked investors. standard and poor's downgraded the credit rating of the federal government because of congress's bumbling response. the u. s is triple a rated it is on negative washing standard and poor, so they are looking for a reason to downgrade the us this could very well be the reason that they're looking for and so i'm concerned about. the politics, really having an economic fallout that we don't like? market watchers recall the dow tanking in real time when the house defeated a rescue bill during the 2000 and eight financial meltdown. the market thought they're not dumb enough to not pass this and guess what? they were dumb enough to not pass it republicans are trying to highlight problems democrats have governing. they couldn't even pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill, which the president negotiated. and the

speaker of the house promised would pass last week. so the plan is to hike the debt ceiling by $480 billion that gives the treasury department just enough money to get through december 3rd. it also means the federal government must grapple again with its bills. right around the same time as everyone else at the holidays on capitol hill, chad per gram fox news. this is ktvu fox two news at six. tough but i mean the giants. they kept up with them all season. they won the series against him, and hopefully these are the games that really matter. sports fans across the country. focus attention on oracle park right now, as the giants take on their arch rival dodgers in the playoffs. good evening. i'm andre scene and i'm jana katsuyama. the city is buzzing tonight with the build up to this game and other big events. you also get live outside the oracle park the hub of tonight's action. right now we're about 30 minutes from the start of the game. and you can
