California Wildfire Now Contained
The massive fire that scorched more than 400 square miles of forest land in California over more than two months is finally 100 percent contained.
Fire officials say the Rim Fire was sparked by an illegal campfire a few miles outside of the town of Groveland in mid-August. The blaze burned significant portions of the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park.
Among other things, it destroyed a city of Berkeley-owned campground which had been welcoming visitors for decades. The Rim Fire ranks near the top of the list of the largest wildfires in California history.
