CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) - Southern California firefighters remain on the lookout for hot spots a week after a wildfire erupted near Camarillo and Thousand Oaks.

The Ventura County Fire Department said Thursday the fire is 96 percent contained. It's been days since there were any open flames but embers are still smoldering and smoking. There is no estimate on when full containment is expected.

The blaze was sparked May 2 along U.S. 101 about 50 miles west of Los Angeles. It threatened about 4,000 homes before crews got it under control.

The fire is estimated to have scorched nearly 38 square miles.

In Northern California, a 10.7-square-mile wildfire in Tehama County is fully contained. The fire began last week northwest of Butte Meadows, about 200 miles north of San Francisco.
