Recent rainfall is paying off for firefighters working the 416 Fire, which is now 100 percent contained.

According to The Durango Herald, firefighters say it aligns with a goal set in mid-June to have the fire contained by Tuesday, July 31.

The fire started June 1 and grew to over 54,129 acres and an investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.

The main concern continues to be flooding around the burn scar in that area.
