The Camp Fire in Northern California’s Butte County was contained Sunday morning at 153,336 acres, Cal Fire reported.
The massive blaze began the morning of Nov. 8 on Camp Creek Road near the town of Paradise and has since become the most destructive wildfire in California history.
The Butte County sheriff’s office and Cal Fire have reported 85 fatalities and over 18,000 structures destroyed in and around Paradise. The fire was contained at 7:02 a.m. Sunday, according to Cal Fire.
Deputies said Saturday there are an additional 249 people who are missing. Evacuation orders are still in place while firefighters work on fully extinguishing the fire.
Rain over the weekend brought some respite for dry, smoky conditions throughout Northern California and the Bay Area, but deputies said the water could also cause debris flow and flash flooding in fire-ravaged areas.
Cal Fire officials said several shelters in Oroville, Chico and Yuba City are currently full but evacuees are able to stay at shelters in the Butte County Fairgrounds in Gridley and the Neighborhood Church in Chico.
Conditions in Chico and Butte County Sunday are sunny with small patches of smoke coming from isolated sources, according to Cal Fire.
