Bootleg Fire in E. Oregon poses significant threat to power grid

This is an absolute monster of a fire, now about 138,000 acres with over 40 spots showing heat radiance that breaks the scale on the satellite monitoring equipment. Video shows 150 foot flames in some areas. It poses a significant threat to California’s power grid and utilities are already begging people to conserve energy use as our record heatwave continues.
