Containment

The CZU Lightning Complex fire is now 100% contained at 86,509 acres (~135 square miles.)

Containment doesn’t mean the fire is out or even fully under control. It simply means they’ve established a control line around the entirety of the fire such that it should not spread any further.

At the height of the fight, there were almost 2,500 personnel working the fire. That number is down to 81 today. I think that does say something about the control they have over the fire though and I’m relieved to finally hear containment has hit 100%.
