you carried that flag high tonight, simone biles. simone replying thank you, such a huge honor, go, usa. >> what a treat she was to watch during the whole olympics. we'll have more on the olympics coming up. also the latest from ryan lochte, but we begin with those massive wildfires in washington forcing evacuations, scorching thousands of acres. abc's clayton sandell is on the scene. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning. take a look behind me. just hours ago all of this burning rubble behind me here was someone's home and you can see now but take a look over here. you don't see as many flames but when i look at it through my heat sensing camera here, you can see just how red hot the ground here still is. thanks to that monster wildfire that came with little warning. this morning, wildfires are raging just outside spokane, washington. >> just massive fire going down. >> reporter: three out-of-control blazes engulfing nearly 8,000 acres in less than 24 hours. at least a dozen homes and
7:03 am
flames threatening neighborhoods and forcing immediate evacuations. >> people need to leave now. >> reporter: overnight one of those fires growing rapidly from 250 acres to 5,000 where hundreds of firefighters are battling the flames. dropping fire retardant from the air. and on the ground, evacuating at least 100 people from their homes. officials say a second fire was sparked by a the home that once stood here now nothing but charred rubble and ash, neighbors say the homeowners were lucky to be out of town. >> gone up in flames. it's a gut wrencher. it hearts. all gone with nothing to show. >> reporter: a third blaze advice many from many front yards still showing no signs of slowing down. the good news, no reported deaths or injuries. the bad news they still don't know how many homes look like this.
7:04 am
much. more on this from ginger. it's not just washington state, the whole west. >> yeah, 25 large wildfires burning from california to nevada up to montana, so it's a large area, places like bakersfield, california, where that cedar fire is ongoing grew more than 9,000 acres over the weekend. 4 million acres burned so far this year and we have fire watches and warnings centered on the northern rockies from montana to wyoming, that will slip and that's the instigator that kicks up the wins and get a gust up to 40. already dry, alr fires just keep going. coming up in a couple of minutes my hometown and parts of west michigan had a tornado. i'll show you the pictures and where it moves next. >> thanks, ginger. now to the race for the white house and donald trump's campaign try a new tactic signaling a possible shift on immigration as the clinton camp releases a new attack ad this morning. abc's tom llamas is here with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: good morning. we are less than 80 days out before election day.
7:05 am
counting? a new ad war is now under way between trump and clinton and what looks like a policy shift from the gop nominee. this morning, donald trump's new campaign manager kellyanne conway signaling trump may be backing off his proposed deportation force when it comes to undocumented immigrants. >> you're going to have a deportation force and you're going to do it humanely. >> he will lay out the specifics of that plan that he would implement as president of the united states. >> will that plan include a deportation force. >> to be determined. >> reporter: this as trump is hitting roadblocks when it comes to minority outreach, some calling this statement offensive. >> you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. what the hell do you have to
7:06 am
over 95% of the african-american vote, i promise you. >> reporter: george asking conway about it. >> many in the african-american community saw that as insulting saying most african-americans don't live in poverty and that mr. trump was making those comments in communities that are more than 90% white. >> but those comments are for all americans and i live in a white community, i'm white. i was very moved by his comment, in other words, he is trying to tell americans that we can do better. >> reporter: trump's tough talk starting to come back to haunt him. this morning the clinton campaign out with a new ad. >> in times of crisis, america depends on steady leadership. >> knock the crap out of hip, would you, seriously. >> clear thinking. >> i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me. >> reporter: and calm judgment. >> and you can tell them to go [ bleep ] themselves. >> reporter: the ad argues trump is too unstable when it comes to national security issues.
7:07 am
some of his message he's started debate prep. sources tell abc news trump will be watching clinton's past debate performances from her senate and presidential campaigns and still getting advice from roger ailes and eventually, george, he will be holding mock debates with someone standing in as hillary clinton. >> that's going to be interesting to see who that is. thanks very much. a new twist in that clinton e-mail controversy. colin powell is speaking out, jon karl joins us with more on that. >> reporter: good morning, george. when it comes to her e-mail controversy, hillary clinton is secretary of state colin powell as essentially an alibi. her basic argument, he did it too. most recently mrs. clinton reportedly told the fbi that powell had actually advised her to use a private e-mail. the details of his advice is included in a new book who writes "powell told her to use her own e-mail as he had done except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a state
7:08 am
powell thus confirmed a decision she had made months earlier to keep her personal account and use it for most messages." now over the weekend powell has pushed back telling "people" magazine, quote, her people have been trying to pin it on me. the truth is she was using it for a year before i sent her a memo telling her what i did. it's also important to point out, george, that what powell did is much different. he didn't set up his own personal server and powell was secretary of state before rules we p department employees not to use personal e-mail for official business. in other words, there really isn't much of a comparison and as you can see from what powell said over the weekend he's a little irritated by those trying to make a comparison. >> any reaction from the clinton camp. >> reporter: no, i asked and no reaction to powell's latest comments. >> let's get more on it from matthew dowd. maybe no reaction is the best reaction. the more clinton and her team talk about it the more trouble
7:09 am
two candidates who seem to step in it on their own and get in their own way during the course of the race. hillary clinton's biggest problem is trust and every time these things come up it compounds split you've seen with this new leadership team in place for donald trump some changes and expressed regret for the first time although didn't say exactly what it was for and outreach to the african-american community and now some talk about maybe shifting his position on immigration which has been the central ten at, >> ryan lochte has done a better job of expressing regret than donald trump has. donald trump did it once and ryan lochte did it four or five times. especially on the african-american community it's like a preacher who is supposed to be doing international missionary work but who stays at home and speaks to the already converted. he should talk to the community that he wants to impact, part of this obviously is to demonstrate to the republicans that he's got his campaign together, but time will tell. this race, though, the balance
7:10 am
five-point race again. >> if donald trump can start to bring down the numbers of those people who think he's unqualified or biased against minorities which i assume is why he's speaking out about the african-american community, that could really close this race. >> yeah, i think this race is meant to be close in the course of this. now we have to look at the target states but as the national number changes, the target states change in the course of this. in what i think is, we have to focus on a debate. the debate will determine the winner or loser of this >> first one is supposed to be on september 26th. when i talked to kellyanne conway yesterday she didn't commit to the schedule set out by the commission on presidential debates. >> they have to do this debate much more than hillary. donald trump needs this. hillary clinton doesn't need this. donald trump has to have this to change the dynamic of this race. >> even though he is still negotiating he have to accept what they put up. >> yes, because he needs the race. when you're four or five points behind and it's solid, only way to change it is with a debate. >> thanks very much. now to new questions about
7:11 am
actual emergency after that chaos erupted at jfk in new york last week over false reports of gunfire? abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. while these are being raised they're broader implications. a u.s. senator wants to know if all our airports are prepared for a mass shooting or terrorist attack. it was panic. >> of gunshots. >> reporter: passengers running, they thought, for their lives. >> put into action at active shooter plan at this time. >> reporter: the shocking pictures on the tar make are not only flyers running but security personnel too. >> someone started screaming and everybody dropped their bags and started running. >> reporter: one suggestion, that someone heard what turned out to be applause for the olympics a week ago at jfk and
7:12 am
the scene that alarms new york senior senator. >> no one was leading this emto safety. no one was telling them the right thing, in fact, it was reported that several tsa agents shouted out someone had a gun or there's terrorism. >> reporter: the worry, every airport is responsible for its own security and schumer says that leads to a patchwork of law enforcement, local police, sheriff and contractors. that's the reason the senator says it may not just be jfk but other ari could see panic like this if there is a real shooting. now, schumer is asking for a federal investigation and wants the department of homeland security to look at jfk and see if there are broader lessons that can apply to all airports. >> thank you for that. we turn to the zika virus and a new warning about where it could turn up next. federal health officials say recent flooding in louisiana and texas is putting those states at higher risk of the spread of the disease. a record amount of standing
7:13 am
control efforts and concern mounted since they confirmed it spread is south florida from downtown miami to miami beach prompting a travel warning for pregnant women. health officials warn it could be two years before the u.s. stamps out zika for good. new details about the death of prince. the associated press is reporting some of the painpills taken from his estate after his death were mislabeled and actually contained fentanyl. that is the narcotic that killed him which is 50 times more powerful than heroin and an official close to the investigation says at least one pill labeled as hydrocodone tested positive for fentanyl. investigators are not sure how prince obtained those drugs. george. >> we'll move on to rio and that spectacular closing ceremony for the summer olympics. we saw simone biles carry the flag for team usa right there. capped a triumphant run including men's basketball and matt gutman has been there from
7:14 am
all. >> reporter: absolutely, george. there was american medal triumph and the ryan lochte scandal and so far no zika but last night's glittering spectacle had it all with flying acrobats and the ceremony passing of the torch from the rio games to the japan games in tokyo in 2020 that was heavy on the nintendo themes. ? one more chance to samba in rio. the closing ceremony celebrating the last day of the games with taste of carnival. >> five medals, four gold. >> reporter: simone biles leading the way for team usa, the five-time medalist carrying the flag through a rain-soaked mar maracana stadium and causing this logjam as those lined up to snap selfies with her. a little bad weather couldn't stop the party. brazil passing the torch to tokyo, the host of 2020 summer
7:15 am
team usa ending its 16-day olympic run the same way it started with a gold. sunday night the men's basketball team crushing serbia. >> for three. >> reporter: the all-star lineup led by kevin durant's 30 points earning team usa its 121st and final medal of the game. >> as we say, bring it on. >> reporter: but they weren't alone. claressa shields winning her second straight olympic gold medal. claressa shields. >> reporter: just as she promised me she would last week. what happens after the games assuming you win gold? thought about it? >> i'll definitely win gold here after that. >> reporter: the 212-year-old is now the only u.s. boxer with two golds bringing the hardware she won in the 2012 games with her to the podium. >> snyder of the united states. can he hang on? >> reporter: in wrestling kyle
7:16 am
gold for team usa at 20 years old he's now the youngest american olympic wrestling champ. >> will get a medal to go with that sill strer. >> reporter: in the men's marathon american runner galen rupp citing an adam sandler flick as inspiration for his bronze medal performance. >> i was watching "happy gilmore" the other day and i fight being a marathoner. >> reporter: meb keflezighi slipping a few step as way from the finish line then doing impromptu push-ups before finishing the race . okay, so simone biles is 4'8". that flag is 9 feet tall about twice her height and with wind swirling here at 50 miles an hour yesterday, carrying that flag may have been the hardest thing she's had to do at the games so i'll give her a perfect 10 for that. also, japan's prime minister who morphed into super mario during that closing ceremony that was
7:17 am
things we saw. >> great job, matt. >> a perfect 10 for matt after three weeks straight. >> yeah, come home. >> you were there in rio too. what was the highlight? >> without a doubt watching simone biles just kill it on all of the events, i mean she really is perfection. just watching her flawlessly smile through some of the most amazing athletic feats you could imagine and she knew she was going to bring home gold. >> she made it look easy. >> she did. >> jesse hashe >> hard fought 16 days but in the end an impressive show for all the american athletes. team usa topping the list in most gold medals as well as the overall count. here's the breakdown. the u.s. getting 121 total medals, gold, 37 silver and 38 bronze and actually breaks the u.s.' overall medal record set back in the 2008 beijing olympics when they had 110 total medals but most of the gold

7:31 am
in the ring becoming the first american olympian to win two gold medals in boxing. she has an incredible story and journey. we can't for her to join us live. >> said she knew it would happen all along. the latest from ryan lochte, in hot water over that robbery scandal apologizing for what he called overexaggerating and further action will come for him and his teammates. linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: the 32-year-old says he's sorry for im behavior and that he's learned his lesson but he still does not admit to lying. again and again he called it, quote, overexaggerating and when asked directly if he was robbed the 12 time medalist says he doesn't know. >> if i told the entire story, none of this would have happened. >> reporter: disgraced u.s. swimmer ryan lochte finally coming clean. >> i overexaggerated a story. and i shouldn't have.
7:32 am
didn't happen, none of this would have happened and people would not be all over the world tuning in on this story. >> reporter: the story that 12-time olympic medalist he initially told got them in hot water saying at the returned to the olympic village when their taxi was pulled over and they were robbed at gunpoint by men >> the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and said get down. >> reporter: he says he was still intoxicated during that interview. >> i take full responsibility and it's my fault. >> reporter: his version began to unravel after authorities in brazil released surveillance video of him and the other swimmers at a gas station accusing the swimmer of vandalizing the rest room. eventually two of the swimmers provided their version of that night. in a statement, gunnar bentz
7:33 am
ourselves on the back side of the building behind some bushes and jack conger wrote, ryan lochte remove aid poster from a nearby wall, which apparently alerted the gas station employees leading to our being confronted by two armed security men. a witness told our matt gutman the athletes were trying to keep the authorities out of it. >> no police, no police, please, please, no police. >> they were saying no police. >> yes. >> reporter: but lochte till refused to call his, quote, overexaggerating a >> i wasn't lying to a certain extent. a gun was pointed at us. we had to call them money. you can call that a robbery, extortion or just say we had to pay the money for the damage of that poster. >> reporter: lochte got emotional when talking about his teammates on nbc news. >> i mean, i -- i let my team down and, you know, i wanted to
7:34 am
them dry because i mean they were my teammates. >> reporter: the 32-year-old's future is in question with endorsement deals worth a million dollars including sponsors like speedo. >> i am speedo fit. >> reporter: and polo ralph lauren. >> i've done the training. >> reporter: and while the summer games are now over, the u.s. olympic committee announced late sunday they're not finished with the matter. >> we are going action on this when we get back to the united states but i think we all overstundz what happened at this point. >> reporter: there are actually several organizations that could sanction the swimmers. so far no word on any d disciplinary action. he's not finished with swimming, he says. it just remains to be seen if the sport of swimming is finished with him. >> more on this from amy.
7:35 am
jeremy schaap. we were just talking and this article piecesing to the video and some of lochte's revised accounts and say they jive and puts questions back on those security guards in there's no doubt about that. in many ways this story exonerates lochte and implicates both the security guards who according to this investigation might have committed a crime themselves and it also lays some blame at the feet of the rio police whose accounts of what happened don't jibe as you say with the facts on the ground so i think this might in some ways force a reconsideration of the judgment against ryan lochte in the court of public opinion. >> because they said there was no vandalism to the bathroom. didn't look like anything had been repaired so it does back up what lochte is saying now that he just exaggerated. >> and beyond that they spoke to an eyewitness, someone who saw the situation, excuse me,
7:36 am
were pulled, saw a badge flashed, turns out the security guards were off duty prison guards, so you can understand in some ways how in ryan lochte's mind this felt like a robbery or at least extortion. >> especially when you're under the influence of alcohol. >> which he admits that he was and so were the others. >> the usoc says it might consider further action against lochte and his teammates. what do you think will happen. >> i wouldn't be the usoc, u.s. swimming come down pretty hard on ryan lochte. we're going to have to see, though, how public opinion is swayed by this story in "usa today," if that's going to in some way alter their approach if they're going to be more lenient than they might have been otherwise. they suspended michael phelps six months for a dui weaving in traffic drunk, you know, putting other people in harm's way, how would you justify giving that
7:37 am
something at least on the fast is that is less serious. >> there's going to be a impact. big companies will shy away from getting involved with any controversy like this. in the long run, if he finds as right way to rehabilitate himself there might be even some ways for him to capitalize on this notoriety. i think there might be clever ways, but in the short term, people are going to say to themself, people make those digs we don't want to have any to do with ryan lochte but that could change. >> all right, a lot could change, jeremy schaap, thanks. we appreciate it. george. coming up on our big board, a massive price hike for a life-saving allergy medicine. could the new costs of epipens leave your family at risk. why a former navy s.e.a.l. over writing a book about osama bin laden. and who will play spider-man's mary jane.
7:38 am
will you be needing anything else? no. not a thing. beautyrest black.
7:39 am
...clear for take off. see ya! when you're living with diabetes. steady is exciting. oh this is living baby! only glucerna has carbsteady, to help minimize blood sugar spikes.
7:40 am
time now for the big board. our team of insiders belief to talk about today's top stories. dan abrams at the desk with us. we'll get to you in ray minute. let's begin with this huge price increase for epipens. many families now saying they can't afford to pay for the life-saving medication because the cost is so high. rebecca jarvis tracking the story. this is an eye-popping increase. >> it is, george. 400%. that is the amount that the epipens have gone up in cost since 2008 and as a lot of families are getting ready to they know the importance of those pens when they hit the classroom. this is an outrage. you have mylan pharmaceuticals, the company that creates the epipen that grbts it say they are working tirelessly to get access out there to all the families who need them. they also say that nearly 80% of the commercially insured patients using the epimen savings card received it for 0 dollars but the issue i'm hearing from a number of parents
7:41 am
you're uninsured or even if you are insured, you might not actually have access to that program. >> rebecca, i mean, so many people calling this company vultures and what impact does it have on the company's bottom line? >> that's right, amy. the person who called them vultures is martin kelly, the poster child for bad behavior in that and the stock since this news came out about the 400% increase in prices it took a hit down 1 senators have said they'll start investigating the prices. that's never a good piece of news for a public company. >> all right, but maybe it might make a change for those families hoping for more a more affordable option. a former navy s.e.a.l. has agreed to pay the government nearly $7 million. matthew bissonnette reached the settlement with the department of justice over the best-selling book about the operation to kill osama bin laden. dan abrams is here to talk about that so bissonnette agreed to
7:42 am
book. what do you make of it. >> this is a fight no one wanted. this guy is a true american hero. you're talking about you were le heart, silver star, numerous bronze stars. he wasn't alleged to have disclosed classified information. what he was accused of was not allowing the government to vet his book and some of the slides for his speeches before he did it. now, when you have access to sensitive information like that, that's one of the rules, right? you want to talk about this publicly, fine, but you get our authorization first. he didn't. and that's what this settlement relates to specifically the lack of vetting. >> he says he was wrongly advised that he didn't have to get this preclearance so is that why he was singled out by the government. >> we've seen a lot of books about this, et cetera, movies. the reason he was singled out was related to the vetting. it's not that the information was made public, it's that he didn't get permission to release this particular information.
7:43 am
very seriously as you can understand, the need to get classified information or potentially classified information approved first before they can release anything. >> does this mean he can't make any money in the future talking about this. >> no, so he had to pay back for the speeches he gave in 2013 because he used slides that hadn't been vetted. so now he can give speeches, he can talk about it. he just has to make sure everything is aboveboard, that the government knows what he's doing, knows basically what he's saying and sorts of slides, the material he's using, et cetera, then he can try to make some of that back. that's a big number, right? talking about over $7 million. >> a costly lesson. >> absolutely. that's exactly the same thing he said too. >> we'll move on to a controversial brewing about who may play spider-man's girlfriend in the new movie. one has zendaya playing mary jane and want to talk to larry hackett about that. created a little bit of a backlash on social media.
7:44 am
should be reserved for a white actress. >> they're old and written many years ago when people of color didn't have starring roles and the fans of these things take it seriously. on the other hand most of the fans tend to be young people much more open to the idea of n nontraditional casting as they call it. you know, i want to point out we're talking about the casting of the girlfriend of a man who plays a spider in a movie so i think we can probably loosen up the reins here a little bit but this is kind of a trial balloon on the part of the s whether intentionally or not and getting some reaction. most positive, some is always going to be negative in the internet world. so, you know, hopefully for zendaya she gets the role because she's been bandied about now. >> give my girls a reason to go. >> we know hollywood has received recent and quite a bit of criticism for casting white actors in what one might assume should be a role reserved for colored people. is this potentially the industry trying to right itself doing something right? what do you make of this move?
7:45 am
negative press before. >> i think the industry is sensitive. you have a case, you know, about a month ago with matt damon in that picture where he played a white guy saving people in the siege of the great wall of china. and you had a case of casting of emma stone in "alo"aloha" where was supposed to play an asian person. i think there is an effort to kind of change this around. i think, though, that this has to happen at the studio level and it has to happen at the casting level. having the oscar time is too late and nyes to be now so in this case the zendaya conversation may be a good one and may be the start of more broad changes clute the industry. >> larry, thanks so much. want to thank dan and rebecca as well. coming up next the race against time to save a toddler trapped underwater. the harrowing 911 calls and how she managed to make it out alive. mustangs... i can't believe we live in the middle of all this. they're supposed to be one of the most gentle

8:15 am
you hit the sand you're protecting your head like this. >> whoo! spin cycle. i spoke with water experts on the east coast too and they say the majority of injuries they see happen are when people are getting out of the water. so time your exit to coincide with the smaller waves, get through the break zone as fast as you can and, george, you have to keep your head on a swivel watching behind you for those bigger waves. >> yeah, about putting your hands behind your heads. you had a real scare with riptides when you were out there in we were treading water behind the break zone and realized we were 200 yards offshore. but this is proof that knowing what to do in the ocean makes it safer to be there. we swam parallel to the beach, 10, 20 yards and were out of the rip calmly making our way to the shore. listen, i love the ocean. i want to help people have tools

8:46 am
wanted to know how long i can keep pie meat and poultry in the freezer before it goes bad. >> awesome question, jen. so what we like to say for a safe time is about six months. hunters all around, you know, can do it for much longer periods but frozen for home cooked, six months in the freezer. nice and sealed, vacuum packed it'll be just as good coming out of the freezer. >> a lot of good tippers thanks for joining us. coming up, bold
