Firefighting authorities announced on Sunday afternoon that all major fires in the North have been contained as of 4:30 p.m. The announcement came 77 hours after firefighters began their efforts to contain the effort. 

"There are no large fire sites at this time, just small ones that are being tackled [by firefighters]," the Police spokesperson's office said in a statement released Sunday afternoon.

At sundown on Sunday, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The Associated Press that there have been 20 arson attempts in other forests over the past 48 hours, and four people have been arrested.
