San Bernardino National Forest brush fire 40% contained

Firefighters were making headway Monday night in their efforts to contain a brush fire that had burned about 150 acres in the San Bernardino National Forest.

The blaze had scorched timber and heavy vegetation in steep terrain in the Front Country Ranger District west of Alger Creek and north of the Momyer Trail, the U.S. Forest Service said.

As of Monday evening, crews had the blaze 40% contained. The fire started Sunday, prompting officials to close roads in the area.

The cause was under investigation.
