At one point, fire officials said 2,410 structures were threatened by the fast-moving fire and thousands of residents were evacuated, but Madsen said no homes were damaged.
He also said no firefighters were injured, although at the peak, nearly 1,000 firefighters battled the blaze in steep, rugged terrain.
The Cave fire broke out about 4:15 p.m. Nov. 25 near Highway 154 and Painted Cave Road and, driven by Sundowner winds, exploded to 3,100 acres by midnight.
Firefighters were assisted in the battle by steady rainfall that moved into the area the second night.
