4:06 pm
children in court. in a short statement, he wished them quote all the best in their life and quote sheldon is already serving time on state murder charges for his role in floyd's death. he was sentenced on the state charges last year to 22 a half years in prison. we're following a developing story today in truckee, a new wildfire east of the truckee airport, prompting evacuation orders, video and photos here posted to twitter show plumes of smoke in the sky. drivers there on interstate 80 reported seeing that smoke rising, at least 10 acres have burned. we have no reports yet of any injuries or damage to structures. fire investigators have not said what may have started this fire. will be electra fire in the sierra foothills has now grown to california second biggest wildfire so far of the season, some evacuation orders have been lifted for people in amador county. other evacuation orders continue, though in neighboring calvary's county. the fire,
4:07 pm
which is already burned more than 4200 acres along highway 49 near the city of jackson is now 40% contained efforts to set backfires to keep the flames from spreading seem to be working. so far, no homes have been destroyed and no injuries are reported. well those fires are sending wildfire pollutants across many communities in joining us now to talk about the air quality concerns and help people respond to wildfire. smoke exposure is sam hefny. olivia sam he's a stanford researcher who co authored a new study and nature human behavior. same. thank you so much for being here. first indoor air quality during wildfires obviously gets to unhealthy levels and many homes, but how people react and the actions they take you found varies. that's right. whether thanks for having me so it's what wildfires are fundamentally different from other pollution sources because it's difficult to stop at the source and so the main pollution the main policy responses than to ask people to protect themselves. and
4:08 pm
social media and other crowdsourced data to see how ant while all across the income spectrum people are interested in air quality, and they do google searches for air quality when wildfires and present but the actual response taking the next step of searching for aarp, your if fires of changing your movement to protect yourself, those only really occur at the higher income level. and why do you think that might be? well we believe that higher income groups just have more resources that are more able to adapt to the situation, whereas low income groups maybe more required to work outside the home. and less able to adapt. so this idea of sort of staying indoors, closing your doors and windows just isn't is it feasible for some people? this reliance, though individuals to protect themselves? what do you think of sort of that strategy by the government? i think it's the only choice in the short run
4:09 pm
because the types of investments that are required to reduce wildfires are going to be needed in the long term, but are ineffective in the short run. but it's also putting a big onus on people to protect themselves and may not be able to them, so it's likely that they're going to be real unequal benefits from these policies, and that's apparently what you found in the study. so what are the risks of these exposures? what did these exposures post to people's health? yes. so looking at indoor air quality and houses around california during wildfires, we found that the average health holds had levels of pollution that are 3 to 4 times the healthy levels and so at at that range of pollution, we'd expect people to have worse asthma or other respiratory issues. the whole suite of health impacts that are associated with those levels of pollution. okay so now that you've conducted this study, what do you think the government should do? do you think that the strategy should be changed a little bit to more appropriately deal with wildfire smoke exposure? yeah, i think in the short run, the only option is to help people cope as best we can
4:10 pm
and to potentially target those groups that are most vulnerable, whether it be people with asthma or people who don't have the resources to protect themselves and then try to help them. so possibly providing air purifiers. yes providing air purifiers would be ineffective, although expensive policy also opening general public areas like libraries to be clean air places is another good option. alright. we really appreciate your time this afternoon. very interesting study thanks again for joining us today. thanks. well, the family of the band suspected of pulling off a mass shooting on the fourth of july, coming under intense scrutiny coming up. the father insists he did nothing wrong in the months leading up to the tragedy. and 17 people received the country's highest civilian honor today from president biden coming up the special ceremony at the white house honoring extraordinary americans. had a barrier weather lots of sunshine today it looks like our warming trend that really kicks off in

4:15 pm
