Lassen National Forest confirmed the Dixie Fire was contained Sunday evening around 6 p.m.
Local firefighters were able to control the fire amid a historic rainstorm and flash flooding in Northern California.
A break in the weather on Saturday allowed for firefighters and park workers to make significant progress on the fire suppression repair work — including tree chipping, removing trees in the Canyon Dam area and road grading work on multiple sites.
But as the fire burns out, burn scars are at risk for flash flooding and debris flow because there aren't any of the natural structures and vegetation to mitigate it.
U.S. Forest Service-Plumas National Forest also fought against the wildfire.
Significant flooding and rainstorms initially held up fire containment work in counties like Butte, but firefighters and national forest services were able to control the fire overnight.
