11:04 pm
there is no danger to the overall community. uber defied the rules and put self-driving cars on the road here in the bay area. tonight the state is laying down the law and that's not all. there's more trouble. joe vazquez explains from san francisco. joe? >> reporter: liz, tough day for uber. just as they were trying to explain that they didn't believe they needed a dmv permit to put a driverless car program on the streets of san francisco, one of their cars was caught on camera running a red light. >> we were on a busy surge street. >> reporter: jessica felix was driving a passenger in her cab south of market this morning and saw a volvo marked uber with the same contraption on top as a self-driving car. what happened next was caught on her dashcam. >> all the cars stopped at the red light. uber just kept going, very surprised to see a car continue on. >> reporter: you see the light change. the taxi stops. then a couple seconds later the uber goes right through the red light. a pedestrian was well into the
11:05 pm
crosswalk. >> it's just neglectful. >> reporter: the red light run happened in the middle of a dramatic day for uber. hours early the company announced it was beginning a pilot program to begin picking up passengers with driverless cars in san francisco and they decided to do it without the green light from the dmv. "we understand there is a debate over whether or not we need a testing permit to launch self-driving cars in san francisco. we don't believe we do." the dmv disagreed and late this afternoon shut the program down. as for the red light incident, uber says this car was not part of its driverless pilot program, that there was a driver and he has been disciplined and essentially that the incident makes uber's entire case about autonomous vehicles. "this is why we believe so much in making the roads safer by building self-driving ubers." they're using it to bolster their point that we shouldn't have human drivers. >> exactly. they don't care. it was too early to put those cars on the road whether or not it was the driver or not.
11:06 pm
somebody needs to be held accountable for this. >> reporter: so this is the big question tonight. will uber break its pattern and actually follow this new order saying it can't put its program on the streets? well, they haven't responded. so it's actually not clear. reporting live joe vazquez, kpix5. only on 5 we have learned oakland firefighters had been in the ghost ship warehouse before it burned. despite reports to the contrary, the question tonight how could they not have noticed what was going on? one man tells us he was watching a band perform inside the warehouse two years ago when firefighters came in. he said they were friendly, checked things out. however, officials have said there are no records that the fire department was ever there. cbs5 also confirmed with the promoter of the 2013 event that firefighters were indeed inside the building and they even spoke with derick ion almena,
11:07 pm
the man renting the warehouse. >> i'm not exactly sure when, but sometime in the middle of the show i think pretty early on the firefighters showed up inside the building walking around at least downstairs. i believe they were upstairs, but i forget. >> video also shows police poking around in the warehouse october this year. the mayor says the city is developing ways for city employees to properly report dangerous living conditions. we reached out to the oakland fire department for comment but have not heard back. tonight musicians are banding together to give back to the arts community in oakland. kpix5's emily turner was there. >> reporter: there have been fundraisers for the victims of the ghost ship fire almost sense the fire itself, but tonight is the biggest one raising a significant sum that will go to the victims' families and also to the community and potentially make changes there. ♪[ music ] >> reporter: 20 artists, four hours, one very significant cause. >> it's going to be somber in
11:08 pm
moments and i think that's important, but we don't want it to be a wake. we want it to be a little bit more celebratory. >> reporter: tonight's benefit concert at fox theater in oakland sold out, 2,800 tickets. 100% of ticket sales and merchandise go to the gray area foundation for the arts adding up to almost $300,000 for its fire relief fund. >> here we are now. it's about $680,000. [ cheering and applause ] >> and we're only going to continue to grow it together. >> reporter: all but one of the artists on stage is local and a special graphic design was created by an oakland artist to give those here who mourn and celebrate a banner to rally under. local artists hopped in line alongside folks who had only heard of the tragedy but still wanted to pay tribute. once you add in tonight's earning the gray area foundation overall will have
11:09 pm
raised close to $1 million, money many hope will not only help, but also make change. >> the immediate concern is to make sure the victims and people affected are taken care of, but beyond that i think it's important to try to solve the problem of there not being a place for artists to, one, live, but to also perform and show their art. >> reporter: emily turner, kpix5. yahoo, the victim of what they call the largest hack in history, more than 1 billion accounts compromised, and tonight bloomberg is reporting this could actually pose a threat to national security. according to bloomberg, 150,000 government and military employees including the fbi and the cia are among the victims. now the hack happened back in 2013, but it's just coming to light now. the cyber criminals stole sensitive user information including names, dates of birth
