The Snell Fire, which since Sept. 8 has burned 2,490 acres between Middletown and Lake Berryessa in northern Napa County, is now considered 100 percent contained, Cal Fire officials announced Saturday night.

Full containment was declared as of 7 p.m., Cal Fire said in a news release. About 27 fire personnel were still on scene patrolling for any possible hot spots.

No homes or other structures were damaged by this fire, which has been burning for more than a week. Much of this area, centered on the Berryessa Estates area northwest of the lake and on the area near the intersection of Snell Valley Road and Butts Valley Road about eight miles southeast of Middletown in unincorporated Lake County, was under mandatory evacuation for two days.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
