GLENDORA (CBSLA.com) — A wildfire burning in a steep, remote area of the Angeles National Forest is 90 percent contained and no flames were showing.

Forest spokesman Justin Tyler says crews made good progress Friday against the fire that has charred 190 acres of dry brush and chaparral. He says crews are busy dousing hotspots.

The blaze was reported shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday above the foothill city of Glendora northeast of Los Angeles. No buildings are threatened.

Two firefighters received heat-related injuries and a third was cut while battling the flames in hot, dry weather.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
