It took nearly two weeks but the Alamo Fire east of Santa Maria is now fully contained, according to CAL FIRE.
The fire broke out on the afternoon of July 6 along Highway 166 near Twitchell Reservoir. It burned a total of 28,687 acres.
One home was destroyed in the fire and another structure was damaged.
It cost an estimated $20 million dollars to fight the Alamo Fire and the work isn’t done yet.
CAL FIRE says 21 fire crews will remain throughout the fire perimeter in the coming weeks. The 153 firefighters on those crews will provide fire suppression repair, remove equipment, mop up and patrol for hot spots.
If you see significant smoke in the area, call 9-1-1.
