    Firefighters are wrapping up operations at the Canyon Fire in Napa County, and the 114-acre wildfire is now 85 percent contained, a Cal Fire spokeswoman said Sunday.

    Firefighters are continuing to strengthen the control lines and work the interior hot spots within the fire perimeter, Cal Fire spokeswoman Suzie Blankenship said.

    The firefighters are also doing fire suppression repair, Blankenship said. Cal Fire repairs any damage to property, such as cut fences or gates, or the land, that occurred during the fire, and that's what's going on now, she said in an email.

    Firefighting crews will be reduced in numbers as containment continues, Blankenship. At the last report, 164 fire personnel were on the scene, down from more than 300 at one point.
