ANZA (AP) — Firefighters have contained a wildfire that burned 150 acres in the Southern California desert south of Palm Springs and destroyed one mobile home and an outbuilding.

The fire near Anza was fully contained Saturday morning.

It was sparked in a storage shed Friday afternoon and quickly spread through dry vegetation.

Authorities say the cause of the fire is under investigation.
