If it helps, the Antioch bridge is the bridge that is at the mouth of both the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers, where they empty into the Suisun Bay portion of the Bay area. It is approximately 20 miles west of the city of Stockton, 25 miles west/northwest of KSCK, and roughly 15 miles southeast of KSUU. about 6 miles north of the bridge is the town of Rio Vista. The fire was on the north side of that bridge, above Antioch.
