YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK (CBS13) — The third-largest wildfire in California history has finally been 100 percent contained.
More than two months after it started on Aug. 17, the Rim Fire is finally completely under control. There is a small 800- to 1,000-acre pocket near Kibbie Lake with potential to burn.
For the most part though, the fire that devastated Yosemite National Park through Labor Day and burned 257,314 acres—or 402 square miles—is done for.
The cost to fight the fire that destroyed 11 homes and 98 outbuildings is estimated at $127.4 million.
