firefighters in monterey county are still battling a wildfire that's now been burning for nearly five days. the willow fire started thursday night in a remote area between carmel and big sur. the u. s forest service says it has now grown to more than 3.5 square miles. that fire has forced the evacuation of dozens of homes and a number of popular campgrounds and firefighters explained some of the challenges they face containing this fire. its terrain is just incredibly steep and difficult to get to what areas that they can get to, um you know, there are some significant challenges to safety wise is that we're always looking for, you know places for them to retreat escape if needed. and so, so far, that's what we're encountering. so far. there are no reports of any injuries and no homes have been lost. there are concerns about power outages throughout california after a heatwave last summer strained the state's power grid. ktvu is tom baker looks at why the power supply is so thin. ktvu viewer, frank san
12:32 pm
ciotti wrote. please investigate the lack of power generation in california, and why not? one word has been said about spending some of the $72 billion surplus voting new power plants. we put that question do u c. davis haas energy economist, professor james bushnell. the challenge that the states facing is the fact that we're trying to transition away from. fossil fuels and trying to meet these aggressive greenhouse gas reduction goals, building more natural gas fired power plants only puts more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and not retiring the older, less efficient fossil plants only worsens that at the moment, non polluting nuclear plants are not in favour. three of the most plentiful non fossil fuel electricity sources are hydro, electricity, solar and wind. hydro requires lots of water in reservoirs not available in the drought. we have plenty of wind all power when the wind is
12:33 pm
blowing and plenty of solar when the sun is shining, the reliability issues we've had have all been post setting sun on really hot days. peak demand can last hours beyond the sunset, creating the shortages that cause flex alerts, power warnings and possible rolling blackouts. if we cannot import power from other states. the most likely time for that will be from now through september, we run into another west wide record setting heat wave. we could once again be in trouble. one expensive solution we'll all pay for is to store electricity in giant non polluting power plants full of high energy batteries. by august, california will have installed enough batteries to supply power to 1.3 million homes. but the batteries only last about four hours. which may not make the state's power reliable for multi day heat events, so we'll probably need four or five times that amount just to be protected from
12:34 pm
rolling blackouts unless we do a much better job of conserving power. when asked tom vacar ktvu, fox, two news and the drought may soon have a major effect on the power supply, specifically in view, county engineers say the dry winter in northern california has caused the water level in lake oroville to drop dramatically. and that may force the closure of the reservoirs hydro electric power plant for the first time ever. the shutdown would put a strain on the power grid during the hottest part of the summer, when the demand for energy is at its peak. construction begins today on the russian rivers, inflatable rubber dam right near forest ville. the inflatable dam creates a pool of water that fills several ponds where water is filtered and then sent to customers in sonoma county. because of the drought, the water levels would have been very low, so the decision was made to replace the 26 year old dan. voting access will be closed throughout the summer during the construction work more than a year after the state's pdd offices started getting flooded with

12:40 pm
mills as an independent college. we don't have evidence from them that there's a need for this at all. we believe that we can turn whatever is wrong with the school around. and if you don't think so, then show us the documents. that tell us that emma goss, ktvu fox two news. well, the bay area is seeing a boom in summer school enrollment after a year of distance learning. the east bay times reports that the san ramon unified school district has around 4000 students enrolled in one program alone. some families say they were hoping to get a last minute spot inside a summer school classroom but were wait listed in fremont and santa clara. enrollment has nearly doubled for the summer. meanwhile san francisca 0 million initiative. called summer together to provide free in person summer school classes were still to come at noon. as we celebrate pride month. the lgbtq community is calling for more to be done when it comes to gaining equal rights up next, the laws that advocates say are
