BEAUMONT, Calif. (AP) - Crews continue to battle a wildfire that has burned at least 2,200 acres of brush in a remote area of Riverside County.
Fire department spokeswoman Jody Hagemann says Sunday that the blaze, burning steep terrain between Beaumont and San Jacinto, is not threatening any homes.
At least 445 firefighters aided by five air tankers and five water-dropping helicopters have contained about 30 percent of the fire.
The fire was reported Saturday afternoon. Winds moving at up to 20 mph helped the flames spread to 2,000 acres in five hours.
Hagemann says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
