Holy fire in Riverside and Orange counties is 100 percent contained
The Holy fire, which burned 18 cabins or homes and 23,136 acres in Riverside and Orange counties, causing thousands to evacuate, is completely contained, the Cleveland National Forest said Thursday, Sept. 13.
Full containment is reached when the blaze can no longer jump the perimeter of the fire line. A locked containment line is 100 feet in from the edge of the burn footprint.
Fire crews will remain on the scene, looking for flare-ups.
