CRESTLINE, Calif. — The small wildfire that started Thursday night off Highway 18 near Crestline burned only 9.5 acres and was fully contained by 7 a.m. Saturday.
"Firefighters faced hazardous conditions," said U.S. Forest Service spokesman Chon Bribiescas said on Saturday. "They had to work through the chaparral and it was steep and rocky. They did a heck of a job containing the fire to that acreage."
