The blaze broke out December 4 near Santa Paula, and destroyed 1,063 structures in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, while damaging 280 others.

The announcement Friday marks a hard-fought triumph over the wildfire, which earlier this month became the largest in modern state history.

Firefighters have still not determined the cause of the fire. Just 13 people remain assigned to the fire.

Two deaths were attributed to the wildfire - 70-year-old Virginia Pesola of Santa Paula who crashed her vehicle trying to escape and 32-year old San Diego fire engineer Cory Iverson who was killed battling the fire.
