SAN BERNARDINO (CBS / AP) – Crews have fully surrounded a massive Southern California wildfire that burned for a week and destroyed 105 homes and 216 outbuildings.
The state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says the blaze in San Bernardino County mountain areas is 100 percent contained Tuesday after charring nearly 57 square miles of drought-dry brush.
Investigators are searching for the cause of the fire that broke out last Tuesday about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
Meanwhile nearly 1,900 homes are threatened by a wildfire on California’s central coast that grew slightly overnight to nearly 58 square miles.
The blaze in San Luis Obispo and Monterey counties remains 35 percent contained after destroying 36 homes.
