More than a month after the Thomas Fire took hold in California's Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, firefighters have reached 100 percent containment of the deadly blaze. "We would also like to thank the local and surrounding communities for their understanding and support during this time".

"Wildfires exacerbate the potential for debris flow and are most likely to occur during high intensity rainfall", the state's firefighting service cautioned, suggesting the possibility of more mudslides to come. Debris flows can be extremely unsafe. This order includes trails within the burned area.

What was previously designated a public safety exclusion zone - an area west of Sheffield Drive/East Valley Road/Ladera Lane, east of Olive Mill/Hot Springs Road, north of the ocean, and south of the U.S. Forest Service boundary - is now part of the mandatory evacuation order area. "The large amounts of mud and debris are making access and progress challenging", Friday's Santa Barbara County Fire incident update said.

"The only words I can really think of to describe what it looked [like] was it looked like a World War I battlefield", Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown.

The Thomas fire began its destructive march 30 miles east of Montecito on December 4.

Federal and state authorities are now examining the burn area to assess the risks for flooding and other post-fire hazards.

County-based emergency service agencies are reviewing assessment reports from the BAER and WERT teams and working on emergency preparation plans for affected communities.

Rain water mixed with ash, branches, boulders and other debris on the ground and ran downhill, slamming into structures and wiping more than 100 homes away.
