Only 20% contained...I was taught...where there is smoke there is fire....I see no smoke..I live on the West side of the mountain. Maybe there are some hot spots still burning on the East side...but 20% contained..

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini.

PS...Thank you Contra Costa Fire Crews...It must have been hard with all the heat.
