COBB, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have reopened the community of Cobb two weeks after it was hit hard by one of California’s most destructive wildfires.

Lake County officials say all roads to the rural community north of San Francisco reopened to the public on Saturday.

The fire erupted near Cobb Mountain on Sept. 12 and quickly spread to 118 square miles, destroying nearly 2,000 structures and killing four people.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says more than 1,600 firefighters are continuing to battle the fire. It is 95 percent contained.
