Los Padres National Forest officials have announced the Whittier Fire near Cachuma Lake is fully contained. 

The fire began on July 8 off Highway 154 between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez. 

It burned more than 18,000 acres and caused more than $30 million in damage. 

Firefighters say the rocky terrain delayed the containment process because it was difficult access some lingering hot spots.
