# Problems when baking a simulation in Blender 2.8

I am baking a smoke simulation, and something doesn't add up. The whole animation has 180 frames, and the smoke simulation starts at frame 80 and ends at frame 180. However, when I click on 'bake all simulations', in the console, I see that 250 frames are being baked.

Baked for 2m 1s, current frame: 20/250 (5.996s), ETC: 22m 59ss


I made sure I removed all previous bakes -- just in case I also deleted the directory with the cache for this specific blend file.

Why is the number of frames being baked incorrect?
