3 Of 6 SoCal Wildfires Near Complete Containment As CalFire Burns Through Yearly Budget In 6 Months

Of the 6 major wildfires that have been burning in Southern California over the past week, 1 is completely contained, 2 are nearing complete containment, and another is nearly 90 percent contained.  That remarkable feat has come because of the non-stop effort of thousands of firefighters and the deployment of hundreds of ground and air units, which has nearly depleted Cal Fire's annual firefighting budget.  Details on all of this in a report from KVCR's Ken Vincent.

Ken Vincent has retired. We appreciate the way he shared his expertise with many of our young interns and reporters over the nearly eight years he spent as KVCR's lead journalist and Morning Edition host. We wish him a happy and relaxing retirement as he spends more time in his garden and, as he mentioned, more time on the golf course. Thanks Ken!
