A 27-square-mile wildfire in Southern California is 95 percent contained.
Ventura County Fire spokesman Bill Nash says crews hope to have the 17,500-acre blaze near Moorpark fully surrounded sometime Sunday. No homes have been lost.
Nash says Santa Ana winds, which fanned the flames for days, are no longer a factor.
The fire began Tuesday and burned through rugged land interspersed with orchards, farms and ranches.
Firefighting costs have topped $6 million.
