(Associated Press) Fire officials say rain is helping the fight against the deadliest blaze in California in the past century.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Thursday the fire that leveled Paradise is 90 percent contained two weeks after it started.
The blaze was 80 percent contained Wednesday before the first of three storm systems arrived in the area where at least 83 people died in the fire. The fire ignited Nov. 8 and has destroyed more than 13,000 homes.
