The cause of the County Fire, burning in Napa and Yolo Counties, has been determined and Cal Fire says it was due to improperly installed electric livestock fencing.

The fire, which started on June 30, has burned 90,288 acres and is 86 percent contained.

20 structures were destroyed and all evacuations have been lifted.

Officials said progress continues to increase and firefighters are aggressively working to strengthen perimeter control lines, mop up, and tactically patrol.

Unburned spots of vegetation continue to burn within the interior of the fire and fire suppression repair teams are actively engaged working around the fire perimeter and affected areas.
