WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters have fully surrounded a wildfire that burned 96 acres of dry brush in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles.

LA County Fire officials say the blaze north of Wrightwood near the San Bernardino County line was 100 percent contained Saturday night.

Crews got help from water-dropping aircraft as they worked to keep the flames from moving east into the Pinyon Hills area.

No damage or injuries were reported.

Route 138 near Route 18 was briefly closed in both directions.

The fire was reported just before noon Saturday. The cause is under investigation.
