always a ritual this time of year with a twist. the excitement to be back on the field is always there on the first day of summer camp, but so was another element. change the 49ers first day of camp was witnessed by a healthy gathering of their fans who are transitioning to the team's current state, while still wearing the reminder of a well liked former player who's jersey , is destined to join the ranks of the sixteens and eights. developing chemistry with new starting quarterback trade. lance will be a priority for everyone on the 49ers offense, but especially someone who figures to be as important as receiver brandon aiyuk, who trained with lance this offseason. he talked to me all the time. i guess, he said. i used to never talk to him. i stand giving dirty looks apparently, but i was just being i was really i don't know what he's talking about. but every time you get in the huddle, and then you go away, and then you work and you get better, and you come back. and you go away and
5:22 pm
come back in each time you get more and more comfortable, um, just based off, not only the work that he put in a way, um, but just um, having some success in the in the spring and then coming back, you know, some guys just hang around the quarterback, so people write articles about it, and they can get brownie points. but that's not how you style so i liked i liked where he was before he left in the fact that he was with three for so long makes a lot of sense, because, um, he seems pretty determined. so while the quarterback situation is now settled one major goal on the summer checklist remains to be accomplished. tebow samuel is in camp. but he won't be in full practices until he gets a contract extension. i just had a good talk with devo. i know there's we all know there's a lot going on with devo right now. his representation and tory with prague and john and hamp. they're talking nonstop right now. so we'll see what happens. hopefully we can figure something out soon. elsewhere on the personnel front, the 49ers parted ways today with edge rusher dee ford, who has been plagued by injury. last year starting corner jason barrett, not yet healthy enough to

5:31 pm
the clock battling california's largest wildfire so far this year, and they continue to gain control over the oak fire there in mariposa county, near yosemite national park. the oak fire says. excuse me, officials say that the oak fire now is at 32% containment. the wildfire has grown several 100 acres, though since yesterday and is now scores nearly 19,000 acres. although some evacuation orders have been lifted, most remain in place. this is the third time for me. so i had stuff still in boxes. i'm in the process of writing a book, and i didn't want to leave any of my work there, so i just grabbed whatever i could and got out of there. that's the best we could do more prepared next time because i put in, like one outfit one nightgown. it's not enough. because i don't know
5:32 pm
when they're gonna let us back in. the crews were working all night and really strengthening those containment lines. we just really stressed to be patient. we have crews from all over the state of california working on this fire. 74 buildings have been destroyed, many of them homes because of the fire remain center investigation well, with the peak of wildfire season now upon us work to reduce fire risk is really ramping up in the east bay hills. there was an ongoing effort to create fire breaks and cut back trees. ktvu brooks jarocz joins us now after seeing how the east bay regional parks district is doing its part brooks jarocz on three main factors whether terrain and fuel for the flames. now the one that can be controlled is that fuel and no tools to battle. the brush are off the table and more than a dozen east bay parks that even means getting help by the herd. mhm cutest things on earth . we love them. they have great
5:33 pm
personalities. they're here to do a job. one big bite and chew means one step closer to preventing a major wildfire. 350 goats can take down about an acre a day of average growth. sawyer zoom knows best. she owns thousands of them. and these days, our company goats are us is chronically busy. we just try to get out there and do our best meet all the needs that are requested of us. we've been we live in this community and this east bay with climate change in drought. it's just one strategy employed by the east bay regional parks district, where 65% of land is grazed, sometimes near and between homes in this field here at chez ballpark, 600 goats are grazing, aiming to reduce fire fuel. but when you have areas that are uncontained or managed by fuels reduction work. it has the potential to have large wildfires because it's going to produce flame lanes that are large in that we
5:34 pm
can control through firefighters using engines. the assistant fire chief says the work costs millions, but it has already paid off a recent vegetation fire near the oakland zoo spread to park property, but newly created firebreaks. help stop it from growing for us. it was a proven example. that combination of fuels management, along with a quick fire response is a proven method to keeping our neighbors safe from catastrophic wildfire. bowen along nearby trails, a new project, costing $10 million is underway. in in with eliminating brush and cutting back limbs, getting into areas where the goats can't. and a 15 person hand crew is tasked with taking down trees, many dying due to drought left standing and dangerous, otherwise acting as kindling as the first signs of a spark, so for us, we're going in to reduce those trees them out, and that'll make it so that it's not so much of a fire hazard,
5:35 pm
helping the community beefier safe, a proactive approach to keep everyone even the herds happy. for comparison and 15 person hand crew cost the parks district $1.2 million a year, but for the hundreds and hundreds of goats that cover ground in more than a dozen parks, it only costs $500,000 a year, so it's truly a cost effective way to protect against catastrophic wildfire. heather brooks, we regularly see a lot of people using goats for fire management. just curious, though, how they go about kind of mapping out where the goats are going to be. sure so the herder actually sets up an electrified fence and when the goats are done in that area, they put one of those fences down and let them into another area that they already have corralled. and they do that until all the work is done, like a little puzzle piece there. alright brooks jarocz. thank you . we'll be sure to stay with ktvu and keep us up to date on the oak fire another wildfires across our state. we have a
