The Guiberson Fire, which began on the morning of September 22 and burned primarily in Moorpark and Fillmore, reached 100% containment yesterday, as the last of the assigned fire crews worked to completely surround and put out the flames, reports abc7.com.

A total of 17, 500 acres were scorched during the fire's nearly-week-long run in Ventura County, but ultimately only one outbuilding was destroyed. "Ten firefighters were injured in the firefight, and the estimated cost of the fire is $9.8 million."

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, though preliminary findings suggest it may have began on a goat farm in a pile of vegetation or manure.
