Aided by diminishing winds, firefighters have contained a Kern County brush fire that blackened 150 acres Friday night.

No structures were damaged in the wildfire, which burned in a canyon near the Tehachapi-Willow Springs Road in an area with a number of windmills.

“The wind died down so they were able to catch it,” said Capt. Bill Brickey of the Kern County Fire Department. The blaze was contained by 11:30 p.m. Friday.

The cause is under investigation.
