A 4,864-acre brushfire burning since Sunday, near Gorman, was declared 100 percent contained as of 8 a.m. this morning. The Quail Fire was first reported just after 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Over the course of the fire, over 1,000 fire personnel battled the blaze in the air and on the ground. Cool weather conditions in the area east of the I-5 assisted firefighters in getting the upper hand on the blaze.

Fire personnel will remain in the area for the next couple of days watching for hot spots.
