The Creek Fire Is Contained After 4 Months!

US-CALIFORNIA-FIRE

You may have not even realized that the Creek Fire in Fresno and Madera County is still burning after four months!

The good news is, the Sierra National Forest announced that on Christmas Eve, they declared the Creek Fire 100% contained!

They said the recent change in weather conditions - a winter storm sweeping across the Central Valley - finally managed to push it to full containment.

You may or may not remember that the Creek Fire started back on September 4th and quickly grew consuming 379,895 acres, making it the single largest fire in California history.

It roared through Fresno and Madera County neighborhoods and damaged nearly a thousand structures and caused 30,000 residents of Fresno County and 15,000 residents of Madera County to evacuate.

The area burned by the Creek Fire in the Sierra National Forest is still closed due to what the forest called 'hazard trees' along roadways, trails and in developed recreational areas can pose a risk to public safety.

Carolyn McArdle talked about it on the air. Listen below...
