The nearly 29,000-acre Alamo Fire, once considered the largest wildfire burning in California, is now 100 percent contained as of Wednesday night, according to Cal Fire’s incident report.
The fire, which broke out on July 6 in the area of Highway 166 near the Twitchell Reservoir, destroyed one residence and damaged a structure. At one point, it forced road closures and evacuations, and threatened 133 structures.
In coming weeks, fire crews will remain throughout the perimeter of the fire in order to mop up, remove firefighting equipment, provide “fire suppression repair,” and patrol the area, Cal Fire said. Anyone in the area is asked to drive slowly and be careful as crews continue to work.
Anyone seeing significant smoke in the area should call 911, Cal Fire said.
