Cal Fire states that two wildfires are now nearly fully contained as crews take advantage of better weather, reports The Mercury News.

The 56,338-acre Zogg Fire and the 67,484-acre Glass Fire have reached more than 90% containment.

Both fires broke out in late September and have gone through 100,000 acres combined, destroying more than 1,500 structures and killing four people. The Glass devastated parts of California’s famed wine country.

According to a report from the Associated Press, thus far in 2020, more than 8,500 wildfires have burned well over 6,406 square miles in California, mostly since mid-August. Thirty-one people have died, including several firefighters, and more than 9,200 structures have been destroyed.
