The effort to combat the Hawken fire is being substantially scaled back now that it's 80 percent contained.
There are far fewer vehicles at the command post at McQueen High School.
Many firefighters are expected to be re-assigned to other fires.
An official says about 100 personnel are expected to remain, but at the fire's height, about 700 were working.
Even though the fire is mostly contained, you may still see smoke on the hills.
What could be a small flare up could be seen around 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
Even though significant progress has been made, pockets of unburned fuel could still ignite.
The fire has blackened more than 27-hundred acres.
It's also estimated to have cost about three-point-four million dollars.
