1,100-acre fire near NV-CA line fully contained

BRIDGEPORT, Calif. (AP) – Fire crews have fully contained a wildfire near the California-Nevada line that burned more than 1,100 acres five miles west of Bridgeport, Calif.

Nearly 300 firefighters battled the blaze that was sparked by lightning on Sunday just north of the Buckeye Hot Springs near U.S. Highway 395.

Steep, rocky terrain made it difficult to build a line around the fire. It caused the evacuation of the Buckeye Campground but no injuries were reported or structures lost.
