Favorable weather conditions helped firefighters control a blaze sparked last week north of Pine Flat Lake east of Fresno, which was 97% contained at 2,100 acres Monday morning.
The Sacata Fire was sparked around 1 p.m. Oct. 11 in grassland near the reservoir, U.S. Forest Service officials said. The latest reports are available by clicking here.
Some 450 firefighters were called in on the inferno, with 168 remaining at work Monday.
The fire caused smoky skies over much of the Mountain Area throughout the week, but a storm through the weekend helped create clear air quality, while dropping a small amount of rain on the flames.
