GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire burning in a steep, remote area of the Angeles National Forest is 35 percent contained and all active flames have been knocked down.

Forest spokesman Andrew Mitchell said Friday that crews are making good progress against the fire that has charred about 70 acres of dry brush.

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

Two firefighters suffered heat-related injuries while battling the flames in hot, dry weather.

The cause is under investigation.
