WOFFORD HEIGHTS - The Shirley fire is now 100% contained, according to Sequoia National Forest officials Friday morning.
The fire will continue to burn in the interior, away from the edge, and produce smoke which will be visible throughout the valley.
The forest closure for the areas around the fires will remain in place temporarily since hazards such as falling trees and smoldering stumps are still present and crews will still be working on mop up and rehabilitation.
Nearly all of the recreational opportunities on the Kern River Ranger District and vicinity were not affected by the fires.
The total cost of the fire to date is $10.7 million.
The fire burned 2,545 acres. The cause is under investigation.
At its peak, 1,613 personnel were working the fire with 110 engines, 10 helicopters, 6 air tankers and 12 water tenders.
