A wildfire burning in Mariposa County for a week is just about out.
CalFire says the "Hunters Fire" is now 95 percent contained. It burned nearly 700 acres and destroyed two abandoned homes and an outbuilding. Nine firefighters were injured while fighting the flames, which spread in a rugged, steep area.
CalFire estimates the fire will be fully contained sometime later today.
