CSS CSS grid with same height columns

Hi,

I have these 3 columns, and it was built using a grid. How do I make the grey background the same height for all columns? Ideally not changing this html structure and using css only.

The height can't be fixed, of course.
I tried making the div "content" 100% height but doesn't work.

Thanks!

Here's a link to the code / live example:

And here's the code:
HTML:
<div class="block-news__container">

If you don't want to change the HTML then add this to your CSS and manually change the height: 40%; in ._item
CSS:
._item {
  height: 40%;
}

._content {
  height: 100%;
}
