California Wildfires Called Contained

Firefighters have surrounded three wildfires that have been burning throughout California for weeks.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says that a wildfire that consumed about 7,800 acres (3,157 hectares) in Santa Cruz County was 100 percent contained on Sunday night.

Another blaze in Yuba County was surrounded Sunday after consuming 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares) and two homes.

And officials in Santa Barbara County say a third fire that torched nearly 90,000 acres (36,422 hectares) and burned for two weeks near Santa Maria was declared fully contained on Saturday night.

The three fires drove thousands from their homes, but all evacuation orders had been called off before last weekend.
