Firefighters have fully contained the so-called Powerhouse Fire that scorched 30,274 acres near Santa Clarita.

The fire burned for nearly two weeks. It ultimately destroyed 30 homes and damaged three. 

Los Angeles County officials tonight will host a workshop for folks affected by the fire.

“That'll be in the Lake Hughes/Elizabeth Lake area at their local school. We have over 24 different agencies from insurance companies, Forest Service, that'll assist folks with the recovery after the fire," said Angeles National Forest spokesman Nathan Judy.

Crews will conclude their mop-up efforts today.

“We will have patrols in the area watching the interior of the fire to make sure there’s no longer any smokes coming up,” said Judy. “And if there are, we will be taking care of those."

Still no word on what caused the fire.
