>> After more than two weeks of intense round the clock work, the deadliest wildfire in California's history is now 100% contained. That's according to fire officials, who say at least 85 people were killed in the Camp Fire. Bill Blevins says he and his wife are lucky to be alive.

>> The flames burned my face, my hands. I mean, the flames coming across the road were like a blowtorch. I was watching all the homes around us just burn to the ground. Then all the sudden, it set in that, my god, I am burnt bad. My hands are like, skin is melting off my hands.

I called my wife and I told her, look, babe, we're stranded, we're stuck in the middle of this fire and we have no way out.
