ANZA (AP) — Fire officials say they’ve curbed the spread of a wildfire that has burned 150 acres in the Southern California desert south of Palm Springs, destroying one mobile home and an outbuilding.

A Riverside County fire incident report says the blaze near Anza was reported at about 12:40 p.m. Friday and quickly spread through dry vegetation.

The fire is 10 percent contained and no evacuations have been initiated. Fire officials expect to fully contain the blaze by Saturday morning.

No injuries have been reported.

Four helicopters and 25 fire engines have been dispatched to battle flames amid wind gusts and temperatures over 90 degrees.

Anza is about 45 miles south of Palm Springs.
