Bolt Creek Fire to Burn through September
J425 Updates include a shocking visualization as well as a forecast containment date
Yesterday our breaking news live blog was first to warn you that the #BoltCreekFire will impact your lives for weeks to come.
Today we’re reporting that the fire is now predicted to rage through September.

The J425 reports in our daily live blog that the incoming incident command team has published an October 1 containment forecast for the Sky Valley blaze.
We’ve also got a visualization of yesterdays fire activity which further backs up our earlier reporting that this fire is much larger than what other outlets are reporting.
This video shows an unbroken wall of flame paralleling US-2 for over 12 miles, demonstrating that our assertions regarding the under-reported size of this blaze appear well-founded.
