Largest wildfire on record in California finally contained


VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — The largest wildfire on record in California was declared contained on Friday, days after mud on the coastal mountain slopes it scorched crashed down on homes during a storm, killing at least 18 people. The Thomas fire was declared 100 percent surrounded after ravaging Ventura and Santa Barbara counties northwest of Los Angeles for more than a month. A cause has not yet been determined. Some areas of Los Padres National Forest remain closed to the public until authorities determine it is safe to enter.
