California’s Ventura County Fire Contained

The 27-square-mile wildfire known as the Guiberson in Ventura County is 100 percent contained. However, it may be a few more days before it is fully extinguished, fire officials said.

Ventura County Fire spokesman Bill Nash says crews fully surrounded the 17,500-acre blaze near Moorpark on Sunday.

Nash says some firefighters will remain for a few days to watch for embers.

The fire began Tuesday, in a mulch pile on Guiberson Road, and burned through rugged land interspersed with orchards, farms and ranches. No homes were lost.

Firefighting costs have topped $6 million.
