    The spread of the fire had all but stopped, with 77,758 acres reported burned, unchanged from early Sunday morning, Cal Fire said.

    The 100% containment figure is up from 88% Wednesday morning. And while evacuation orders have all been lifted, some of those areas remained.

    No one died in the fire, which was first reported Oct. 23, but 374 structures, including 174 homes and 11 commercial buildings, were destroyed, Cal Fire said. Four firefighters were injured.

    No official cause has been established as of Wednesday evening, Cal Fire said. Initially, Cal Fire had expected to gain full containment by Thursday.
