Firefighters battling the Glass Fire burning in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties have reached 90% containment on the wildfire as of Sunday morning, Cal Fire said.

That number is up from Saturday evening, when the agency reported the fire was 86% contained. The blaze that started Sept. 27 has burned 67,484 acres and has destroyed 334 homes in Sonoma County and 308 in Napa County, along with destroying or damaging hundreds of other structures.

Cal Fire officials said Tuesday morning that "aggressive mop up and tactical patrol continue in areas where the fire's forward progress has stopped."

Local assistance centers have been set up in both Napa and Sonoma counties to help affected residents access government services and relief programs.

The centers are at the Napa County Health and Human Services campus at 2751 Napa Valley Corporate Drive, Building A, Napa, and Maria Carillo High School, 6975 Montecito Blvd., Santa Rosa.

Firefighters say full containment is expected Oct. 20.
