GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) - Firefighters have 50 percent containment of an 8-acre fire on steep slopes above a reservoir in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles.

Angeles National Forest spokesman Nathan Judy says the fire's forward progress has been stopped and the blaze is inactive Wednesday afternoon.

U.S. Forest Service and Los Angeles County investigators are trying to determine what ignited the fire at midmorning near Morris Reservoir in San Gabriel Canyon, north of the cities of Glendora and Azusa.

Some 150 firefighters were aided by seven aircraft at the height of the blaze. One firefighter suffered a minor injury and was sent to a hospital.
