This story was updated at 11:25 a.m. Thursday.

Cal Fire reports Thursday morning that the deadly Tubbs Fire that has ravaged Napa and Sonoma counties is 92 percent contained, as low overnight winds and increased humidity helped firefighters hold and increase containment lines.

Rain forecast for Thursday in Northern California should help firefighting efforts. The Nuns and Tubbs Fires, which have burned more than 90,000 acres combined, could be fully extinguished with the right amount of rainfall, said Brian Mejia, a National Weather Service meteorologist in the Bay Area, as could the 85-percent contained Redwood Valley Fire in Mendocino County.

Redwood Valley is expected to receive 0.38 inches of rain Thursday afternoon and evening, according to the weather service, while the Santa Rosa area will get a quarter-inch to a half-inch.

On Wednesday, Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano said the death toll in the county has risen by one, to 23. At least 42 people have died in the series of fires that have struck Northern California since last week.

The fires have destroyed an estimated 6,900 structures and wiped out entire neighborhoods in and around Santa Rosa. State fire Deputy Director Daniel Berlant said collectively this is the deadliest series of simultaneous fires in the state in recorded history.

More than 15,000 people remain out of their homes because of the fires. Residents returning home are urged to be cautious as hazardous conditions may remain, Cal Fire reports. For tips on how to return home after a wildfire, go to www.fire.ca.gov.

As of Thursday morning, more than 10,000 firefighters are battling nine large fires in the state, Cal Fire reports.
