The Los Padres National Forest is reporting that the Sherpa Fire in Santa Barbara County is now 100% contained. District fire patrols will continue to assess interior areas and monitor the perimeter until confident that unburned portions within the burn scar do not re-ignite if tested by wind. It could take another two weeks before full control of the fire is achieved. Much of the suppression rehabilitation work has been completed, such as stabilizing firelines and rebuilding OHV barriers and fences that were damaged by dozers and fire crews in building line. The crews have cleaned up piles of brush pushed up by bulldozers and chipping material that was cut along firelines.
