Courtesy of the OCFA:

Silverado Fire update: As of the morning of 9/17, the fire is 95% contained and there are still 375 fire personnel committed to the fire. This is the sixth day the firefighters are battling extreme heat and very steep & rugged terrain. Great team effort from the boots on the ground, the incredible work of all the helicopters & planes and all the overhead personnel working behind the scenes.
