SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Firefighters have contained a once massive wildfire burning across two counties in northern California.
CalFire spokesman Daniel Berlant said Tuesday that crews have surrounded the Sixteen Complex fire in Colusa and Yolo counties. The blaze has consumed 28 square miles since it ignited one week ago. No structures have been destroyed.
Meanwhile, crews continue taking advantage of low winds to slow the once fast-moving Scotts Fire in Lake County.
Berlant said more than 1,600 firefighters are battling the blaze that is now 50 percent contained after burning more than seven square miles and threatening about 300 homes and 40 other structures outside Ukiah.
Also, the North Pass Fire near the Mendocino County community of Covelo is now 97 percent contained after burning 65 square miles and destroying 26 structures.
