Crews Set To Corral Two-Month-Old Wildfire

A two-month-old wildfire in Central California is nearly contained.

Crews expect to finish corralling the huge Zaca Fire in northern Santa Barbara County tomorrow.

The fire has burned 240-thousand acres of wilderness, most of it in Los Padres National Forest.

No homes were destroyed but firefighting costs have topped $115 million.

The fire was ignited on July Fourth by sparks from grinding equipment that was being used to repair a water pipe at a cattle ranch.

Yesterday, officials charged the ranch and two workers with recklessly starting the blaze.
