As of today, the Rim Fire is 30 percent contained, and fire crews say they're hoping to have the full blaze under control by Sept. 10.

And while thousands of firefighters have been working 'round the clock to tackle this out-of-control fire, Yosemite park officials have been documenting the historic blaze. They stitched together images showing different angles and perspectives of the wildfire which started on Aug. 17, and created this 2-minute time-lapse YouTube video for all of us to enjoy.

It's a nice, artsy take on the whole natural disaster.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
