kpix 5's len ramirez is learning more about how sophisticated these thieves really were. >> reporter: this may be the work of a professional ring. certainly the owner of this lot in san jose feels that way based on how they were able to break into his dealership last fright. it happened at 3:30 in the morning. seven men whose face you can see clearly on surveillance video went straight for the cabinet and started identifying the high-end cars they wanted to steal by pressing the key fobs which flashed the cars' lights. the cars were off the lots in seconds. the owners said thieves must have had tools for removing a large glass window so they wouldn't have to trip the door alarm sensors. >> this glass here, they were able to move -- somehow to remove the seals undo it and get the glass to go down, um, without even breaking the

6:13 pm
wind is picking unfortunately. nearly 2,000 more -- the wind is picking up. nearly 2,000 more firefighters are being sent in, in preparation for the erratic winds. >> more sunshine makes more winds because the surface heats up. >> thousands of homes are threatened. 12 homes and 140 square miles have burned. the fire is 35% contained. check out this satellite picture from nasa. it shows smoke from the "king" fire drifting over a wide area. smoke has even drifted to other states including nevada, utah and arizona. several communities throughout the state are getting new weapons to fight wildfires. reporter ron jones tells us some were hand-picked to receive new fire engines but they come with a catch. >> this is not just a free gift. there is a commitment they have to make to the state. final check before hitting the road. the state office of emergency services is issuing these brand-
6:14 pm
new fire engines to communities in need. >> these engines are replacement engines for engines in service now a little over 15 years. >> reporter: four engines costing taxpayers $380,000 apiece are going to agencies in northern and southern california. >> they are eased for everything from structure protection to wildland fires to urban search-and-rescue. >> kind of a win-win situation for everybody. >> reporter: any local fire agency in california can request one of these new engines. the state will approve it based on the needs of the local department and their willingness to help in a state emergency. the agency must make the engine and their crew members available to attack wildfires anywhere in the state. >> sometimes even out of the states we'll go. >> reporter: the state program has been around for decades. with the fires burning in our area, it's timeless. >> we have to replace 7 engines a year. >> that was ron jones reporting. the agencies that received new
6:15 pm
fire engines today from from visalia and several other counties. the state has budgeted about $3 million a year for replacement fire up engines. let's take a live look now at the "king" fire burning in el dorado county. you can really see that thick smoke that's just been hanging around in the air for days. let's go ahead and check in with paul deanno now. >> is the smoke in the east bay going to continue? it's going to get worse, warmer and windier tomorrow. the winds pick up tomorrow. then we get rainfall there and that will really help out the hundreds of firefighters trying to get a handle on that king fire. here's a peek on what's going on now. it's nothing but sunshine. it looks absolutely positively nothing like parts of the bay area that will receive rainfall tomorrow. it's coming. palo alto, fremont, 80 today. campbell, pittsburg, 85. richmond you had sunshine for a while high 71.
6:16 pm
daly city one of the cooler spots 67. rainfall in september. we get it but not that much. less than a quarter in. for the entire month in both san jose and san francisco and less than one half of one inch in santa rosa. so this is a rare treat what's coming and considering how bad our fire danger is throughout the entire state this is excellent news. look at the rain that's already falling in the pacific northwest. and look at that huge counterclockwise strong area of low pressure. this guy is heading toward the pacific northwest. we'll receive the front that sags with it. so 95% of the rainfall will miss us. we are not talking about a big rainmaker but any little bit of rain we get, which will be about .10" of rainfall on average, decreases our fire danger around here. it will make it to the sierra foothills for the king fire. new computer forecast information every two hours and new numbers. so let's pick towns. about 8th inch of rainfall by thursday afternoon for santa

6:19 pm
>> they believe that the town does get a poor reputation within the media but they are very proud of the accomplishments the city has made. >> reporter: vallejo has had persistent problems with crime and budget cuts. but they are making real progress. a downtown decimated by the recession is showing signs of life. a renovated theater offers live music and storefronts are being revived by artists fleeing the high rents of other bay area cities. >> we're doing what we do no matter what people say. when you get a pat on the back and a little recognition like anybody you say wow, that was really nice. >> reporter: while it's important to feel good about yourself -- >> and in beautiful downtown vallejo, 75. >> reporter: -- it's flies to hear it from someone else, as well. in vallejo, john ramos, kpix 5. >> thank you, brian hackney! i totally applaud him. >> awesome city, vallejo. my dad used to take me there when i was a kid to see the submarines at mare island. >> i think he should say beautiful oakland because there are beautiful parts of oakland
