BANNING, Calif. (AP) - Crews have slowed a wildfire burning through century-old brush and dead trees near a Southern California Indian reservation.
The 2-square-mile blaze in the San Bernardino National Forest is 30 percent contained.
U.S. Forest Service spokesman John Miller says the flames didn't gain much ground Tuesday.
The fire erupted Sunday on the Morongo Indian Reservation about 85 miles east of Los Angeles. It's burning in the San Gorgonio Wilderness and is far from any homes.
About 1,000 firefighters and around 20 aircraft are fighting the blaze. Four firefighters have suffered minor injuries.
