when a fire is contained

"When a fire is contained, a fuel break had been completed around the fire manually by hand line, and/or mechanically by dozer line. These breaks may also include the use of natural barriers such as rocky outcroppings. When a fire is controlled, it has been extinguished completely, including hot spots. When a fire has been controlled, the fire line is secure enough so that flare-ups within the fire perimeter will not break through the line."
