Ten active wildfires continued to burn in California Monday after two weeks of devastating infernos in the state. Six thousand firefighters were still deployed to contain the flames, California's Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said in its latest incident report.

Many of the most destructive fires had been contained as of Sunday. The 37,000-acre Tubbs Fire in Sonoma and Napa County was 94 percent contained, while the 57,000-acre Nuns Fire in the same counties was 89 percent contained. In Mendocino County, the 37,000-acre Redwood Valley fire was 96 percent contained.

Cooler temperatures previously allowed firefighters to make headway in containing the destructive wine country fires, but fire warnings went back into effect this week thanks to prime weather conditions. Strong winds and higher temperatures caused yet another fire to spark and spread in San Diego County. Temperatures were expected to hit the triple digits Monday in Southern California where some fires continued to burn, Cal Fire said.

The “Cal Fire Seige” that began Sunday, October 8 left at least 40 people dead and 245,000 acres of land burned through. More than 8,000 structures, including many homes, were destroyed by the flames. Preliminary estimates suggested the fires left $1 billion in damages, though officials expected that number to climb “dramatically,” according to the Associated Press.

Crews worked in recent days to assess just how extensive the damage was in many parts of northern California. Cal Fire announced Friday it had almost finished its damage assessment. The last survey upped the number of destroyed structures from 7,000 to around 8,400.

“We’re getting back into the areas where homes are hard to access and hard to reach,” Cal Fire spokesman Daniel Berlant told the Associated Press. “That’s why these numbers are trickling in.”

California Gov. Jerry Brown issued another executive order Saturday in relation to the fires, this time allowing the Environmental Protection Agency to step in to remove hazardous waste from homes affected by the fires. Potentially toxic debris like asbestos siding, insulation and batteries will be removed from homes by the EPA, state and local officials, Brown said.
