The Los Padres National Forest says the Whittier Fire is 100 percent contained as of Thursday evening.

The fire began on July 8 near Cachuma Lake. It burned more than 18,000 acres. Firefighters say the rocky terrain made it difficult to contain the fire and access some lingering hot spots.

The fire cost more than $30 million in damage.
